That would fall under the ironic category pretty well too...

I'm not one for conspiracy theories but are they 100% sure that they had Hitler's remains? He had access to thousands of bodies of Jewish prisoners if he had wanted to put one in his place to make it look like he had bought the farm. He was a sneaky bastage and though nuts, probably smart enough to have a backup plan if things got bad.

it would be more compelling if this particular tripod member's page cited a source of some kind.

mrscience: from what i understand (as a total non-expert), whoever discovered his remains was reasonably sure that they were the hitler's. i was also under the impression that he was jewish on his mother's side. again, this is not something i can support with evidence. just something i think i read or heard or saw on tv.

Man, those satire sites crack me up!
2001-07-07 07:23:08 AM  
His mother and father were cousins though.

Back in grade school I was taught he was part jew. is this some revelation?
2001-07-07 08:35:33 AM  
Wait ... Jewish BLOOD ? What, exactly, constitutes 'Jewish' blood ? Is there Protestant blood ? Catholic blood ? Baptist blood ? Hitler may or may not have Jewish ancestry, but how can this be 'proven' by DNA testing ??

Jewish DNA is in the shape of the star of David instead of a double helix
2001-07-07 09:25:24 AM  
wow look at them teeth. Only a jewish person can have teeth like that.
2001-07-07 09:42:02 AM  
hahaha.. that's total bullcrap..jewish blood.. hah.. they make it seem like jews are another species entirely..
2001-07-07 10:13:03 AM  
It's a "joke". Anyway, did you know that Hitler was actually called "Adolf Schicklegruber" for a while? Funny. Read more here.

For those who are unenlightened: Jews ARE a seperate race, it's not just a religion. You think that nose is a gift for your bar-mitzvah? oy.

A tripod news site, forgive me if I don't notify the Pulitzer committee.
2001-07-07 11:03:20 AM  
Dot Wrong. There is only one race- the human race.

You can't extract DNA from bone. You need soft tissue.
2001-07-07 12:42:11 PM  
You can extract DNA from bone just not well or easily. I believe there was a Straigt Dope article on were the Hitler-is-Jewish rumor was started.
Yes there is only one race (human) but there are subsets that can be determined geneticaly. For several thousand years the Jewish people were a largely self-contained people. Therefore, they had less influx of other genetic material. The other thing is that Judaism is not an evangelical religion, so if you're Jewish it's because your ancestors were Jewish.

Regardless of the validity of this article, Jewish "blood" is what Hitler and the Nazis considered when determining life or death. There was the question of what to do with half jewish people, those that were children of a Jewish person and a German. In the eyes of the Nazis, Jewish people WERE a race unto themselves. If your mother was Jewish, then you were half Jewish, regardless of what religion you practiced.

This article aside, if it were proved that Hitler's grandmother was Jewish, then by his own definition he would be a "quarter Jewish" and, chances are, subject to the death camps if he were a normal person walking the streets in Germany.

Does anyone else find it interesting that ISN is also the propaganda machine for President Clarke on Babylon 5.

Maybe I just watch to much tv.
Just a thought.
2001-07-07 02:22:17 PM  
I think this guy just made this story up.
2001-07-07 02:23:26 PM  
Cagey What the fark are you talking about? You trekkies are farking nuts, dude. I'm sure it's some sort of conspiracy based on Star Trek and Hitler. I'll never get it.

Gelos Heres the Straight Dope on it. Also the question of whether or not Hitler had one nut, here. Interesting.
2001-07-07 03:22:52 PM  
nah, I'm pretty sure it's got to be bone marrow for DNA.
2001-07-07 03:28:00 PM  
Wow 3 seperate autopsies!
2001-07-07 03:38:35 PM  
quetzlgumby: on what, exactly, are you basing your bone marrow theory?
2001-07-07 03:57:04 PM  
OH NO! now there's gonna be a Nutty profersor 3 .......and how come HITLER didn't post on these comments ...ironic?
2001-07-07 11:14:34 PM  
This is very old news. I knew about this back in middle school. And who cares about Hitler anyway, he is dead.
2001-07-08 12:22:49 PM  
Meat - in this case, since they don't have blood or tissue samples, probably bone marrow, not bone itself would work, if it hadn't already calcified.
But then I'm no watson or crick...
2001-07-08 10:00:16 PM  
Trust me... gum is right... you can get a DNA sample on MANY things. You can get one from a tooth with enev a smidgen (yep- I said it) of dried pulp on it. Is it easy?

-hells no-

Possible... quite.
2001-07-08 10:19:32 PM  
Thanks bud, but my question is how can they prove Jewish heritage through DNA? Even Jewish people have different DNA make-ups. Unless they're using mitochondrial DNA and comparing that to the first Jewish woman ever on the planet, from which all Jewish descendents arise...
I don't know, this is bad reporting.
