That Time Hitler’s Nephew Viciously Denounced Uncle Adolf In An American Magazine – Task & Purpose

Family dinners can be tense affairs. Doubly so if youre related to one of the most despised human beings in history: Adolf fucking Hitler.

Born in Liverpool, England, in 1911, William Patrick Hitlers father, Alois Hitler, was brother to Adolf, and as William grew up, he was apparently an irritating and embarrassing thorn in his uncles side. Their tense relationship worsened substantially after he published numerous articles in the United Kingdom and United States detailing his uncles personal life. Thanks to Mark Frauenfelder over at BoingBoing, we can share some of those anecdotes.

In the July 4, 1939 edition of Look Magazine, a bi-weekly general interest magazine based in Des Moines, Iowa, the younger Hitler published a six-page feature entitled Why I Hate My Uncle.

Theres that bit about Adolf Hitlers autographed photo, his preferred after-dinner snack, and his mannerisms:

Being very close to my father at the time, he (Adolf Hitler) autographed this picture for me. We had cakes and whipped cream, Hitlers favorite dessert. I was struck by his intensity, his feminine gestures. There was dandruff on his coat.

Then theres some disturbing implications about the suicide of Hitlers half-niece:

When I visited Berlin in 1931, the family was in trouble. Geli Raubal, the daughter of Hitlers and my fathers sister, had committed suicide. Everyone knew that Hitler and she had long been intimate and that she had been expecting a child a fact that enraged Hitler. His revolver was found by her body.

Oh, and the descriptions of William Hitlers visits to Germany, where he met with his uncle. Tense doesnt really cut it:

I published some articles on my uncle when I returned to England and was forthwith summoned back to Berlin and taken with my father and aunt to Hitlers hotel. He was furious. Pacing up and down, wild-eyed and tearful, he made me promise to retract my articles and threatened to kill himself if anything else were written on his private life.

I shall never forget the last time he sent for me. He was in a brutal temper when I arrived. Walking back and forth, brandishing his horsehide whip, he shouted insults at my head as if he were delivering a political oration.

William Hitler moved to the United States in 1939, and later changed his last name to Stuart-Houston. He also enlisted in the Navy during the war yeah, in addition to slamming his piece of shit uncle in print, he signed up to fight in World War II. His initial attempts to join the Army were shot down, due to his family connections, but after writing an impassioned plea to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, he was permitted to serve in the Navy, according to the Daily Mail:

I am the nephew and only descendant of the ill-famed Chancellor and Leader of Germany who today so despotically seeks to enslave the free and Christian peoples of the globe. More than anything else I would like to see active combat as soon as possible and thereby be accepted by my friends and comrades as one of them in this great struggle for liberty.

Its unclear if the early articles were published for noble reasons, or personal gain rumors of the articles being an attempt at blackmail abound but the fact that Hitlers nephew signed on with the Navy to kick Nazi-butt makes us think hed have been welcomed among the likes of the Inglourious Basterds, had they been real.

"Why I Hate My Uncle," by William Hitler (Look magazine, 1939) – Boing Boing

A copy of Look Magazine from July 4, 1939 will cost you $950, because it has a a six-page photo-illustrated feature by William P. Hitler, called “Why I Hate My Uncle.”

William Patrick Hitler was born in Liverpool in the UK in 1911. His father was Adolf Hitlers brother Alois Hitler. William moved to Germany in 1933 in an attempt to benefit from his uncles position of power. It appears William, who was familiar with Adolfs family background, was an embarrassing thorn in Adolfs side during the 1930s. Moving to the United States in 1939, William served in the US Navy in World War II. After the war, William Hitler changed his last name to Stuart-Houston.

Looks article is written by William and reveals what it was like to be Adolf Hitlers nephew. Here are some excerpts:

The July 4, 1939 issue of Look Magazine is scarce with just the single copy listed for sale on AbeBooks. It is offered by Rare Non Fiction, a seller located in British Columbia, Canada.

Look was a rival to Life Magazine, and was published between 1937 and 1971. Prominently featuring eye-catching photography and well known people, Look employed Stanley Kubrick as a staff photographer from 1946 to 1951.

Originally priced at 10 cents, this copy features Hollywood film stars Hedy Lamarr and Robert Taylor on the cover, and also has articles on Americas most wanted criminals, nurses, and horse racing. It is comfortably the most expensive copy of Look listed for sale on AbeBooks.

Austrian City Puts Nude Statue Donated by Hitler Back on Display – Heat Street

An Austrian city has returned a controversial statue donated by Adolf Hitler to public display.

Linz, one of Hitlers favorite towns in the Third Reich, received the bronze sculpture as a gift from the Fhrer in 1942, at the height of the Second World War.

The artwork, a personal gift from the Nazi leader, was meant to help establish the settlement as one of the cultural capitals of his dominion.

It was set up in one of the citys parks, where it stood for decades as its origin faded from memory. (It is pictured above at the site in 2001)

But in 2008 it was removed after a group of local art students dug up its history and complained.

The bronze has been in storage for almost a decade but will now be made available for public viewings again.

An announcement from a local museum, the Nordico, said that letting people see the statue was an act of remembrance.

It argued that displaying it with large amounts of historical context was better than attempting to dismantle history by hiding it away.

Local politicians were more or less unanimous in supporting the decision, according to the AFP news agency.

Some pointed out that keeping it at an indoor museum will make sure it does not become a site of pilgrimage for Neo-Nazis.

Linz has a personal connection to Hitler, who lived there for eight years while he was growing up.

Like many areas linked to the Nazi leader, it has agonized over the right way to acknowledge the connection in the modern era.

Many sites associated with his life have been demolished, partly to prevent Hitler devotees flocking to them.

His birthplace in Vienna has been subject to a particularly fierce dispute, especially as the owner and the government disagreed over what to do with it.

For decades, the Austrian government rented the property from landlord Gerlinde Pommer to make sure nobody else could misuse the site.

But late last year, authorities decided to pass legislation to reclaim the building, which is due to be knocked down and replaced with either a charity building or government offices.

German paramedic sacked for drawing a HITLER moustache on … – The Sun

Sick prank carried out on drug casualty being transported in ambulance

A PARAMEDIC in Germany has been fired after drawing a Hitler moustache onto the face of an immigrant being ferried to hospital for a suspected drink and drugs overdose.

The incident happened at Christmas but only came to light this week when medical assistant Thomas Wagner posted a video and photos in a WhatsApp chat room set up by him for the Johanitter care group in Frankfurt.

He wrote on a photo of the victim : Victim#1 today: trendy beards.

And a friend responded with a tasteless quip about the Nazi Holocaust writing: The Yolocaust. Another wrote: Oh, how peaceful it slumbers!

Yolocaust yolo stands for you alone referred to selfies taken at sensitive Holocaust remembrance sites in Germany.

On the video the patient is seen slumped over the gurney inside the ambulance.

Wagner is not seen but can be heard saying: Are you coming into the hospital with us to get sober?

The victim responds weakly: Yes.

Then there is more laughter from the ambulance crew when one says: Youre supposed to lie on the stretcher, not over it.

Days later Wagner seemed to realize the error of his ways and posted in the chat room: A few lines on the video I postedit shows how not to do it. I pledge to do better.

And a day later he pleaded with fellow users to erase everything he had posted, adding: I have to accept the consequences of my actions and will today hand in my notice.

digitalpictures-sm@thesun.co.uk

But his bosses beat him to it after viewing the chat room contents and sacked him.

Oliver Pitsch, Johanniter boss for the area, said: We saw the photos and video and his employment was terminated immediately and instantly.

But Wagners woes are not over: his bosses are mulling over filing a criminal complaint about his actions with local prosecutors for failing to properly care for a patient he was responsible for.

Sean Spicer and the ‘anyone I don’t like is Hitler’ rule – New Jersey Jewish News

by Jonathan S. Tobin Special to NJJN

April 27, 2017

The biggest Jewish news story during Passover was the latest example of a rule of political argument: He who mentions Hitler first always loses. I refer, of course, to Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary.

Spicer hit a new low when he seemed to say that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad was worse than Adolf Hitler. In damning Assad for his use of chemical weapons, Spicer asserted that even Hitler didnt sink to using chemical weapons.

Perhaps Spicer was thinking about the fact that the Germans didnt employ chemical weapons when fighting Allied armies as they had in World War I, when both sides used poison gas as a military weapon. But you dont need to be a historian to know that poison gas played a prominent role in the Nazis war on the Jews. After a couple of inadequate attempts to rationalize his statement, Spicer apologized unreservedly.

While Spicer was a fool to compare anyone, even someone as bad as Assad, to Hitler, the anti-Trump resistance appears to have no such compunctions about the objects of their disdain. Its not enough to disagree with Trump and his minions or even to point out the alleged dangers of their policies. The political left has embraced White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannons credo that politics is warfare, in which anything may be said if it helps delegitimize a foe.

The Trump administration opened itself up to criticism when the president was slow to unreservedly condemn a spate of bomb threats at JCCs. But Jewish liberals werent content with blasting these blunders. Instead they claimed Trump was responsible for inspiring the threats and a new wave of anti-Semitism. But unlike the foolish Spicer, the groups that made those charges didnt apologize when suspects in the JCC threats turned out to be a disturbed Israeli teen and a left-wing American writer.

The Spicer gaffe also overshadowed a deliberate attempt to demonize Jews in the service of the war on Trump just a few days earlier. The Politico website, one of the most well-read and respected sources of political news, published a lengthy piece on the eve of Passover linking the Chasidic movement Chabad to a nefarious network of real estate moguls that tied the Trump family to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The piece, The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin, seemed to allege that the activities of Chabad, whose hallmark is Jewish outreach, provide some sort of proof for the charges that Trump is in cahoots with Moscow (an argument that has less cogency now that Trump has taken on Russia over Syria).

But it proved nothing of the sort about Chabad or Trump. Filled with errors and innuendo, the article was as much an example of fake news as anything cooked up by the far left or far right. The Anti-Defamation League correctly condemned it as a calumny that invoked age-old myths about the Jews.

Liberals guilty of anti-Semitism dont excuse offensive conservatives. But the moral of the story is that if you complain about Jew-hatred when it can be linked to false narratives about Trump, yet you dont get worked up about what Iran or the Palestinians are saying, let alone about Politico or liberal politicians with backgrounds as apologists for anti-Semites such as the Democratic National Committees deputy leader, Minnesotas Rep. Keith Ellison then maybe its time to question your motives.

Sean Spicer should teach us that the anyone I dont like is Hitler approach to politics or history always fails. Unfortunately, many of his liberal critics need to learn the same lesson.

Linz puts Hitler’s gift back on display in ‘active effort at remembrance … – The Local Austria

Austrian Nazi leader Arthur Seyss-Inquart is seated to the right of Hitler in this picture from a 1938 rally in Vienna. Photo: AFP

The Austrian city of Linz, where Adolf Hitler spent several years as a teenager, will once again display an Aphrodite sculpture offered by the Fhrer after keeping it in storage for years.

The bronze work by the Nazi sculptor Wilhelm Wandschneider was brought toLinz in 1942 as a “personal gift” from Hitler, who wanted to make the city the”cultural capital” of the Third Reich.

For 65 years it stood in the rotunda of a park overlooking the city, wherethe German dictator lived between 10 and 18 years old.

But it was quickly removed in 2008 after a group of art students revealedits unsavoury origins.

Linz’s Nordico museum, which had stored the work, will now add it to itscollections, Doris Lang-Mayerhofer, who heads the city’s culture and tourismcommittee, said Tuesday.

A detailed explanation will accompany the Aphrodite, she said, adding thatthe city wanted to make an “active effort at remembrance” rather than”dismantle history”.

Lang-Mayerhofer, a conservative VP lawmaker, said the decision garneredunanimous support of parties represented on the city council, as well as thebacking of the federal chancellery.

The Greens backed the museum option since it would keep the statue frombecoming a beacon for neo-Nazi pilgrimages, while the far-right FP said itwould protect the work from “political vandalism”.

Despite Linz’s relative insignificance for Nazi Germany, Hitler named itone of his “Fhrer cities” alongside Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Nuremburg.

Linz had organised in 2008 an exposition delving into this cumbersomeheritage.

That Time Hitler’s Nephew Viciously Denounced Uncle Adolf In An American Magazine – Task & Purpose

Family dinners can be tense affairs. Doubly so if youre related to one of the most despised human beings in history: Adolf fucking Hitler. Born in Liverpool, England, in 1911, William Patrick Hitlers father, Alois Hitler, was brother to Adolf, and as William grew up, he was apparently an irritating and embarrassing thorn in his uncles side. Their tense relationship worsened substantially after he published numerous articles in the United Kingdom and United States detailing his uncles personal life. Thanks to Mark Frauenfelder over at BoingBoing, we can share some of those anecdotes. In the July 4, 1939 edition of Look Magazine, a bi-weekly general interest magazine based in Des Moines, Iowa, the younger Hitler published a six-page feature entitled Why I Hate My Uncle. Theres that bit about Adolf Hitlers autographed photo, his preferred after-dinner snack, and his mannerisms: Being very close to my father at the time, he (Adolf Hitler) autographed this picture for me. We had cakes and whipped cream, Hitlers favorite dessert. I was struck by his intensity, his feminine gestures. There was dandruff on his coat. Then theres some disturbing implications about the suicide of Hitlers half-niece: When I visited Berlin in 1931, the family was in trouble. Geli Raubal, the daughter of Hitlers and my fathers sister, had committed suicide. Everyone knew that Hitler and she had long been intimate and that she had been expecting a child a fact that enraged Hitler. His revolver was found by her body. Oh, and the descriptions of William Hitlers visits to Germany, where he met with his uncle. Tense doesnt really cut it: I published some articles on my uncle when I returned to England and was forthwith summoned back to Berlin and taken with my father and aunt to Hitlers hotel. He was furious. Pacing up and down, wild-eyed and tearful, he made me promise to retract my articles and threatened to kill himself if anything else were written on his private life. I shall never forget the last time he sent for me. He was in a brutal temper when I arrived. Walking back and forth, brandishing his horsehide whip, he shouted insults at my head as if he were delivering a political oration. William Hitler moved to the United States in 1939, and later changed his last name to Stuart-Houston. He also enlisted in the Navy during the war yeah, in addition to slamming his piece of shit uncle in print, he signed up to fight in World War II. His initial attempts to join the Army were shot down, due to his family connections, but after writing an impassioned plea to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, he was permitted to serve in the Navy, according to the Daily Mail: I am the nephew and only descendant of the ill-famed Chancellor and Leader of Germany who today so despotically seeks to enslave the free and Christian peoples of the globe. More than anything else I would like to see active combat as soon as possible and thereby be accepted by my friends and comrades as one of them in this great struggle for liberty. Its unclear if the early articles were published for noble reasons, or personal gain rumors of the articles being an attempt at blackmail abound but the fact that Hitlers nephew signed on with the Navy to kick Nazi-butt makes us think hed have been welcomed among the likes of the Inglourious Basterds, had they been real.

"Why I Hate My Uncle," by William Hitler (Look magazine, 1939) – Boing Boing

A copy of Look Magazine from July 4, 1939 will cost you $950, because it has a a six-page photo-illustrated feature by William P. Hitler, called “Why I Hate My Uncle.” William Patrick Hitler was born in Liverpool in the UK in 1911. His father was Adolf Hitlers brother Alois Hitler. William moved to Germany in 1933 in an attempt to benefit from his uncles position of power. It appears William, who was familiar with Adolfs family background, was an embarrassing thorn in Adolfs side during the 1930s. Moving to the United States in 1939, William served in the US Navy in World War II. After the war, William Hitler changed his last name to Stuart-Houston. Looks article is written by William and reveals what it was like to be Adolf Hitlers nephew. Here are some excerpts: The July 4, 1939 issue of Look Magazine is scarce with just the single copy listed for sale on AbeBooks. It is offered by Rare Non Fiction, a seller located in British Columbia, Canada. Look was a rival to Life Magazine, and was published between 1937 and 1971. Prominently featuring eye-catching photography and well known people, Look employed Stanley Kubrick as a staff photographer from 1946 to 1951. Originally priced at 10 cents, this copy features Hollywood film stars Hedy Lamarr and Robert Taylor on the cover, and also has articles on Americas most wanted criminals, nurses, and horse racing.

Austrian City Puts Nude Statue Donated by Hitler Back on Display – Heat Street

An Austrian city has returned a controversial statue donated by Adolf Hitler to public display. Linz, one of Hitlers favorite towns in the Third Reich, received the bronze sculpture as a gift from the Fhrer in 1942, at the height of the Second World War. The artwork, a personal gift from the Nazi leader, was meant to help establish the settlement as one of the cultural capitals of his dominion. It was set up in one of the citys parks, where it stood for decades as its origin faded from memory. (It is pictured above at the site in 2001) But in 2008 it was removed after a group of local art students dug up its history and complained. The bronze has been in storage for almost a decade but will now be made available for public viewings again. An announcement from a local museum, the Nordico, said that letting people see the statue was an act of remembrance. It argued that displaying it with large amounts of historical context was better than attempting to dismantle history by hiding it away. Local politicians were more or less unanimous in supporting the decision, according to the AFP news agency. Some pointed out that keeping it at an indoor museum will make sure it does not become a site of pilgrimage for Neo-Nazis. Linz has a personal connection to Hitler, who lived there for eight years while he was growing up. Like many areas linked to the Nazi leader, it has agonized over the right way to acknowledge the connection in the modern era. Many sites associated with his life have been demolished, partly to prevent Hitler devotees flocking to them. His birthplace in Vienna has been subject to a particularly fierce dispute, especially as the owner and the government disagreed over what to do with it. For decades, the Austrian government rented the property from landlord Gerlinde Pommer to make sure nobody else could misuse the site. But late last year, authorities decided to pass legislation to reclaim the building, which is due to be knocked down and replaced with either a charity building or government offices.

German paramedic sacked for drawing a HITLER moustache on … – The Sun

Sick prank carried out on drug casualty being transported in ambulance A PARAMEDIC in Germany has been fired after drawing a Hitler moustache onto the face of an immigrant being ferried to hospital for a suspected drink and drugs overdose. The incident happened at Christmas but only came to light this week when medical assistant Thomas Wagner posted a video and photos in a WhatsApp chat room set up by him for the Johanitter care group in Frankfurt. He wrote on a photo of the victim : Victim#1 today: trendy beards. And a friend responded with a tasteless quip about the Nazi Holocaust writing: The Yolocaust. Another wrote: Oh, how peaceful it slumbers! Yolocaust yolo stands for you alone referred to selfies taken at sensitive Holocaust remembrance sites in Germany. On the video the patient is seen slumped over the gurney inside the ambulance. Wagner is not seen but can be heard saying: Are you coming into the hospital with us to get sober? The victim responds weakly: Yes. Then there is more laughter from the ambulance crew when one says: Youre supposed to lie on the stretcher, not over it. Days later Wagner seemed to realize the error of his ways and posted in the chat room: A few lines on the video I postedit shows how not to do it. I pledge to do better. And a day later he pleaded with fellow users to erase everything he had posted, adding: I have to accept the consequences of my actions and will today hand in my notice. digitalpictures-sm@thesun.co.uk But his bosses beat him to it after viewing the chat room contents and sacked him. Oliver Pitsch, Johanniter boss for the area, said: We saw the photos and video and his employment was terminated immediately and instantly. But Wagners woes are not over: his bosses are mulling over filing a criminal complaint about his actions with local prosecutors for failing to properly care for a patient he was responsible for.

Sean Spicer and the ‘anyone I don’t like is Hitler’ rule – New Jersey Jewish News

by Jonathan S. Tobin Special to NJJN April 27, 2017 The biggest Jewish news story during Passover was the latest example of a rule of political argument: He who mentions Hitler first always loses. I refer, of course, to Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary. Spicer hit a new low when he seemed to say that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad was worse than Adolf Hitler. In damning Assad for his use of chemical weapons, Spicer asserted that even Hitler didnt sink to using chemical weapons. Perhaps Spicer was thinking about the fact that the Germans didnt employ chemical weapons when fighting Allied armies as they had in World War I, when both sides used poison gas as a military weapon. But you dont need to be a historian to know that poison gas played a prominent role in the Nazis war on the Jews. After a couple of inadequate attempts to rationalize his statement, Spicer apologized unreservedly. While Spicer was a fool to compare anyone, even someone as bad as Assad, to Hitler, the anti-Trump resistance appears to have no such compunctions about the objects of their disdain. Its not enough to disagree with Trump and his minions or even to point out the alleged dangers of their policies. The political left has embraced White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannons credo that politics is warfare, in which anything may be said if it helps delegitimize a foe. The Trump administration opened itself up to criticism when the president was slow to unreservedly condemn a spate of bomb threats at JCCs. But Jewish liberals werent content with blasting these blunders. Instead they claimed Trump was responsible for inspiring the threats and a new wave of anti-Semitism. But unlike the foolish Spicer, the groups that made those charges didnt apologize when suspects in the JCC threats turned out to be a disturbed Israeli teen and a left-wing American writer. The Spicer gaffe also overshadowed a deliberate attempt to demonize Jews in the service of the war on Trump just a few days earlier. The Politico website, one of the most well-read and respected sources of political news, published a lengthy piece on the eve of Passover linking the Chasidic movement Chabad to a nefarious network of real estate moguls that tied the Trump family to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The piece, The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin, seemed to allege that the activities of Chabad, whose hallmark is Jewish outreach, provide some sort of proof for the charges that Trump is in cahoots with Moscow (an argument that has less cogency now that Trump has taken on Russia over Syria). But it proved nothing of the sort about Chabad or Trump. Filled with errors and innuendo, the article was as much an example of fake news as anything cooked up by the far left or far right. The Anti-Defamation League correctly condemned it as a calumny that invoked age-old myths about the Jews. Liberals guilty of anti-Semitism dont excuse offensive conservatives. But the moral of the story is that if you complain about Jew-hatred when it can be linked to false narratives about Trump, yet you dont get worked up about what Iran or the Palestinians are saying, let alone about Politico or liberal politicians with backgrounds as apologists for anti-Semites such as the Democratic National Committees deputy leader, Minnesotas Rep. Keith Ellison then maybe its time to question your motives. Sean Spicer should teach us that the anyone I dont like is Hitler approach to politics or history always fails. Unfortunately, many of his liberal critics need to learn the same lesson. Jonathan S. Tobin is opinion editor of JNS.org and a contributing writer for National Review.

Linz puts Hitler’s gift back on display in ‘active effort at remembrance … – The Local Austria

Austrian Nazi leader Arthur Seyss-Inquart is seated to the right of Hitler in this picture from a 1938 rally in Vienna. Photo: AFP The Austrian city of Linz, where Adolf Hitler spent several years as a teenager, will once again display an Aphrodite sculpture offered by the Fhrer after keeping it in storage for years. The bronze work by the Nazi sculptor Wilhelm Wandschneider was brought toLinz in 1942 as a “personal gift” from Hitler, who wanted to make the city the”cultural capital” of the Third Reich. For 65 years it stood in the rotunda of a park overlooking the city, wherethe German dictator lived between 10 and 18 years old. But it was quickly removed in 2008 after a group of art students revealedits unsavoury origins. Linz’s Nordico museum, which had stored the work, will now add it to itscollections, Doris Lang-Mayerhofer, who heads the city’s culture and tourismcommittee, said Tuesday. A detailed explanation will accompany the Aphrodite, she said, adding thatthe city wanted to make an “active effort at remembrance” rather than”dismantle history”. READ ALSO: ‘Crap’ Hitler painting goes on show in Italian Museum of Madness Lang-Mayerhofer, a conservative VP lawmaker, said the decision garneredunanimous support of parties represented on the city council, as well as thebacking of the federal chancellery. The Greens backed the museum option since it would keep the statue frombecoming a beacon for neo-Nazi pilgrimages, while the far-right FP said itwould protect the work from “political vandalism”. Despite Linz’s relative insignificance for Nazi Germany, Hitler named itone of his “Fhrer cities” alongside Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Nuremburg. Linz had organised in 2008 an exposition delving into this cumbersomeheritage. The Aphrodite sculpture pictured in Linz before its removal in 2008. By Ruchhft-Plau – Own work, CC BY-SA.3.0
