    Hitler’s Birth Home in Austria to Become a Police Station

    Thoughts anyone?

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/20/world/europe/hitler-birthplace-austria.html


    "After years of wrangling over the future of the butter-yellow house in Austria where Hitler was born, the authorities have decided to turn the building into a police station, in a bid make it less of a magnet for neo-Nazis.
    With the move, announced by the interior minister on Tuesday, the Austrian authorities hope to send a clear message to supporters of far-right extremism that the three-story building in downtown Braunau am Inn, near Austria’s border with Germany, will not be a shrine to Hitler.
    “The future use of the house by the police should send an unmistakable signal that the role of this building as a memorial to the Nazis been permanently revoked,” Wolfgang Peschorn, the interior minister of Austria, said in a statement."

    So what are the police going to do? Arrest tourists that come to the police station?

    It was probably necessary to deal with migrant problems.

    A police station sounds a lot better than yet another "Holocaust" museum.

    This restaurant in India opening up a branch there was probably unlikely (apparently made to change name after uproars from certain groups)

    Or perhaps an ice cream parlour might have been nice in those hot summer months :-)

    In addition to this, this decision seems to reinforce the notion that the people exist for the state, Austrians must be kept on the leash. I'm under the impression that the police want people to be dependent on them.

    Thoughts ....

    Tearing the house down , will leave an empty space there ,
    which could still become a Wallfahrtsort .

    I believe , that Hitler himself ordered to bulldoze the location ,
    where he grew up .
    Mk 10:18 What do you call me a good master, no-one is good .

    Gylfaginning 1.39 But on wine alone Odin in arms renowned Forever lives.

    I was just curious to hear people's thoughts as this was an ongoing discussion for many years. I just surprised they went the police station ....

    Originally they planned to demolish this listed building - whilst at the same time not objecting to the Dollfuß museum in Dollfuß' birth house. Yea, Austria's cognitive dissonance is that bad. And it's folly anyway, people visit the Obersalzberg even though the Berghof is gone, too...

    That being said, the fact this is no big thing, also shows they're oft just out to scandalise. Now they're buying this "a police station will keep Hitler tourism away". Imagine instead of non-party-affiliated Peschorn this had been announced under the former Minister of the Interior, Herbert Kickl as the perceived "hard-liner" of the Freedom Party.

    The entire newspapers would be full for weeks on end and shady "extremism experts" would be running from TV station to TV station about how they can hear the brown battalions march...
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
