The continuation of the dictator’s bloodline in this world is in the hands of five men – sons of his nephew who have vowed never to start families of their own.
Putting the Dot
These five descendants of the World War II German Nazi leader are the two sons of Hitler’s half-sister, Angela Hitler, Peter Raubal and Heiner Hochegger; as well as the three other sons of Alois Hitler, Jr., the dictator’s half-brother – Alexander, Louis, and Brian Stuart-Houston.
Hitler may have devoted his whole life trying to perfect the human race through the elimination of the weak and the disabled and the ethnic groups he deemed inferior (the Jews). He saw the Aryans as the components of the “Master Race” and had ordered, in his years of rule, the death of countless millions of innocents to move humanity to that impeccable line he was seeking for.
But, it is because of this obsession – the hideous events and the mass killings – that prompted Hitler’s descendants to reach the conclusion that their bloodline, that of the man who saw himself as the zenith of the “Master Race”, is very undesirable resulting to a silent agreement to intentionally kill it.
“They didn’t sign a pact, but what they did is, they talked amongst themselves, talked about the burden they’ve had in the background of their lives, and decided that none of them would marry, none of them would have children. And that’s… a pact they’ve kept to this day,” David Gardner, writer of the Last Days of Hitler, said. He had tracked down the last surviving members of Hitler’s family in the 1990s and discovered this.
Peter Raubal, who was born in 1931, is currently 82 years old. He is a retired engineer and looks like he has no plans to keep the Hitler bloodline alive. His younger cousin, Heiner Hochegger, was born in 1945, making him 68 years old today. However, like Raubal, he doesn’t have any children and would most likely remain that way until his death.
The Stuart-Houston brothers, sons of Hitler’s half-brother, have ages that range from 48 to 64 today. They may still be capable of fathering children, but the brothers show no desire in procreating their own. As children, they have made an agreement to avoid having kids of their own to deliberately wipe out their infamous lineage.
Taking a Peek at Hitler’s Heritage
When it comes to Adolf Hitler’s parentage, especially in his father’s side, there are still many sides to tackle.
For one, many historians accept Johann Georg Heidler as the dictator’s grandfather. Nevertheless, Johann’s younger brother, Johann Nepomunk Heidler, is also a contender to that position. The older Johann married Maria Ann Shickelgruber becoming the legal stepfather of her then five-year-old son, Alois, Adolf Hitler’s father.
There was no father’s name written in Alois’ birth certificate. Many speculations have surrounded that missing piece – some believed Johann Nepomunk was Alois real father but was just ashamed to admit it because he was married to another woman or that perhaps, Johann Georg was really his father and that he fathered him before he and Maria got legally married.
On the other hand, Hitler’s maternity lineage started with Johanna Heidler, the daughter of Johann Nepomunk and his wife, Eva. Johanna married Johann Baptist Pölzl and the couple, had five sons and six daughters. Klara Pölzl, one of the pair’s daughters, became the third wife of Alois and birthed Adolf Hitler.
