The man who claims he is the last living relative of Adolf Hitler says his last name is holding him back from getting a good job.
Not surprising. But he is in the news for other more nefarious reasons – he was just convicted of child pedophilia.
Romano-Lukas Hitler claims he is related to Adolf through Hitler’s father Alois and he is the only person alive still using the Hitler name.
Romano-Lukas Hitler, from the East German city of Goerlitz and has been convicted of a sex act for trying to kiss and otherwise assault a 13-year-old girl.
From The Mirror:
The angry dad said: “I had put a garage up for sale and Hitler answered the advert. But when he turned up he didn’t seem to have much interest in the garage, only in Ania. He lured her to his flat with sweets, brought her clothes and plastic flowers and even offered to marry her.”
The dad said when their daughter had told them he had kissed her, they banned her from seeing him and filed a complaint with the cops.
Hitler however defended himself, saying he simply enjoyed the company of the child and that when he kissed her it had simply been the usual sort of greeting that was normal in Germany and was harmless. He insisted: “I’m innocent”.
But that was rejected by Judge Ulrich Schettgen, 62, who found it proven that Hitler had “kissed” the girl “against her will on both the neck and cheek”.
Hitler, who claims he ended up in a Monastery when his parents died and was adopted by a Polish family before moving to Germany as an adult to train as a ships helmsman, has said he will appeal the conviction.
He has always insisted it is bad for him to have been related to the German dictator, claiming that his surname was the reason why he struggled to find work. He added: “The name is like a cross to bear and I wish that on nobody.”
