“You Couldn’t Make This Up” Dept. -DNA Tests Reveal Hitler Descended from Jews and Africans

YE0375668_wh The DNA tests on relatives of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler show he was probably descended from Jews and North Africans. Journalist Jean-Paul Mulders with the Belgian news magazine Knack garnered the DNA from a serviette dropped by one of three known Hitler descendants who live on Long Island, New York, which led earlier this year to the tracking down in Austria of a farmer known only as Norbert H. who was found to be a cousin of the German dictator. Mulders used the services of historian Marc Vermeeren to find the cousin, in the Waldviertel region, and another 39 distant relatives of Hitler, who killed himself in his bunker in Berlin in April 1945. Norbert H. gave Vermeeren and Mulders a sample of his saliva, who wanted to see if rumours of Hitler fathering a child to a French peasant woman during World War I were true. 

Using both the Austrian sample and the serviette DNA, Mulders claims the link between the two men was 'irrefutable – the Y-chromosome was identical'. Hitler's DNA was found to contain Haplogroup E1b1b, commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco and also accounts for approximately 18 to 20 per cent of the Y-chromosomes of Sephardi Jews who hail from Morocco, Spain and Portugal.

'It is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, in Algeria, Libya and Tunisia as well as among Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews,' he said. 'One can from this postulate that Hitler was related to people whom he despised,' said Mulders in the magazine.
