Hitler Haplogroup Chromosome:Shows Hitler's African, Jewish Roots
DNA Tests Of Adolph Hitler's Relatives Show Hitler Had Haplogroup Chromosome - Demonstrates African, Berber, Jewish Roots?
Recent DNA tests of the descendants of Nazi leader Adolph Hitler have produced some startling results. The presence of the Haplogroup Chromosome (E1b1b1) in Hitler's relatives demonstrate that Hitler may have had Jewish and African roots, perhaps from the Berbers of North Africa.
Belgian journalist Jean-Paul Mulders and historian, Marc Vermeeren were able to find 39 of Hitler's relatives and obtained saliva samples from them, publishing the results in the Belgium News Magazine, Knack. The lab tests show the presence of the Haplogroup Chromosome- E1b1b - apparently very rare in Western European and Germans but not among other ethnic groups, in fact, Haplogroup...
is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, as well as among Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews.
"One can from this postulate that Hitler was related to people whom he despised," Mr Mulders wrote in the Belgian magazine, Knack.
Haplogroup E1b1b1, which accounts for approximately 18 to 20 per cent of Ashkenazi and 8.6 per cent to 30 per cent of Sephardic Y-chromosomes, appears to be one of the major founding lineages of the Jewish population.
The fact the man who inspired and led the Holocaust may actually trace his roots back to African and Jewish heritage is a grim irony indeed but not necessarily a new idea.
The idea that Adolph Hitler may have had Jewish roots has be proposed before. Hitler's father, Alois, was an illegitimate son of Maria Anne Schicklgruber so the uncertain paternity has led some to claim that Hitler is in fact 25% Jewish
Alois' paternity has been the subject of controversy. After receiving a "blackmail letter" from Hitler's nephew William Patrick Hitler threatening to reveal embarrassing information about Hitler's family tree, Nazi Party lawyer Hans Frank investigated, and, in his memoirs, claimed to have uncovered letters revealing that Alois' mother, Maria Schicklgruber, was employed as a housekeeper for a Jewish family in Graz and that the family's 19-year-old son, Leopold Frankenberger, fathered Alois. No evidence has ever been produced to support Frank's claim, and Frank himself said Hitler's full Aryan blood was obvious. Frank's claims were widely believed in the 1950s, but by the 1990s, were generally doubted by historians. Ian Kershaw dismisses the Frankenberger story as a "smear" by Hitler's enemies, noting that all Jews had been expelled from Graz in the 15th century and were not allowed to return until well after Alois was born.
This new Hitler Haplogroup Chromosome evidence is the first physical proof that Hitler may in fact be a descendant of the people he so ruthlessly tried to exterminate.
