Today we learn -- by way of the Forward -- that Adolf Hitler may have had both Jewish and African roots:
Samples taken from some of the German Fuhrer’s relatives show that he was likely descended from some of the ‘sub-human’ races that he tried to destroy, according to research by Belgian journalist Jean-Paul Mulders and historian Marc Vermeeren, cited in the Flemish-language magazine Knack.
Saliva samples taken from 39 Hitler relatives have genetic fingerprints pointing to his possible African and Jewish ancestry.
“This is a surprising result,” said Ronny Decorte, a genetic specialist at the Catholic University of Leuven, interviewed by Knack. “Hitler would not have been happy.”See The Telegraph for the details. I imagine not a few white supremacists will be screaming bloody murder to learn their beloved Führer would have flunked his own standards for purity.
