Hitler birth house in Austria to become police station

The house where Adolf Hitler was born will be turned into a police station, Austria’s interior ministry announced Tuesday, after years of legal wrangling as the government looks to prevent the building from becoming a neo-Nazi shrine. The yellow corner house in the northern town of Braunau on the border with Germany, where Hitler was born on April 20, 1889, was taken into government control in 2016. But the destiny of the building was subject to a lengthy legal battle with the family of Gerlinde Pommer, which owned the house for nearly a century. That only ended this year when the country’s highest court ruled on the compensation Pommer would receive. The interior ministry will now invite submissions from architects to have the building house the town’s police force.
