Hitler did produce a last will and testament leaving his inheritance to his three siblings. But the German state of Bavaria seized all of Hitler's property after the Third Reich fell in 1945, and it currently owns the rights to his estate.

They would have to come forward to get it anyway. Fat chance of that...



Some historians have speculated that Hitler's living family members-there are more than a dozen residing in Germany, Austria, and Long Island-could sue the state of Bavaria and claim royalties for the Führer's literary and artistic work. But none has come forward to claim a cut from the auction

No shat

Führer?

Maybe some of the peeps the Nazis so famously stole countless works of priceless art from could get in line for some reparations.

I've always thought that an Indiana Jones movie where he went looking for Nazi-looted art, and had to beat down ex-Third-Reich'ers hiding in South American exile would've made for a good movie. But nooooOOOooo. Instead we get nuked 'fridges and spaceships. Once again...Screw you, George Lucas.

Ok, good headline subby, but I'm not sure I'm on board with the "stupid" tag. They wouldn't be profiting on his art because it was good, it'd be because of his infamy, so basically f*ck them.

Ah, the famous Long Island Hitlers.
 
2009-04-30 05:45:01 PM
Hmmm, I remember a drunken ToD from a while ago where someone here mentioned being related in a somewhat distant way. It looks like him/her financing the next regional Fark party's open bar is out.

Ah well, probably better for all that way...

What, the decendants aren't house servants for geriatric jews in new york in perpetuity?

I thought when they surrendered that was a stipulation in the agreement.... or it should have been.

Doesn't matter. We didn't get head on a pole, drawing and quartering fun time with hitler. we got cyanide capsule burn in a ditch easymode hitler. so his decendants will have to pay the price.

2009-04-30 06:15:11 PM
Yeah, okay. They could sue Bavaria and try to get money from Hitler's paintings. But they'd have to admit that they were related to Hitler. Then everyone around them would treat them like a leper.

beerrun was so caught up in his contextual error enforcement that he forgot that this is Fark and that subby was simply doing a brilliant job of making me LMAO!

Bravo, subby! Bravo!

FTFA: Plus the German government, as mentioned above, banned the sale of Mein Kampf, thereby cutting off what would have been a steady revenue stream.

Because, you know, we're Germans.

Reminds me of a bit in National Lampoon from "False Facts - Stranger than truth because we made them up."

"Ernie Gofarkyourself petitioned to change his name to Adolph Shiatler. He said he wanted a better name, but not that much better. The judge's name was Biggie Turds."

"Hitler was a drug free....."

As long as you discount the copious amounts of Methamphetamine he used on a pretty much daily basis.

Magnificent headline.
 
2009-04-30 06:28:18 PM
Hitler wasn't a drug free vegetarian.

He was high on meth and or speed most of the time.

Seriously.

His doctor, a fellow named Morel injected him with a concoction called "vitamultin" every day.



More info:
By 1942 Hitler had become a regular methamphetamine user, receiving daily injections of Pervitid from his personal physician. According to the History Channel, anyways, his private physician turned him into a methamphetamine junkie. This was in addition to narcotic pills for sleeping and anti-flatulence pills containing strychnine and belladonna. At one point, Hitler was taking as many as 28 separate medications. No one can be sure what effect the drug cocktail had on the man, whose increasingly erratic behavior was causing his staff serious concern.

That must be a fun day at the genealogist

"So we found who you're related to"

"Oh who's that?"

"Well, there is a nice little family from Sweden on your mothers side, and then you're also related to Adolf Hitler"
