was getting dark by the time the midwife arrived at 219, Salzburger Vorstadt.
The Gasthof zum Pommer, a modest public house located south of the Inn
River, was located in the town of Braunau-am-Inn, Austria. At around
6.30pm, on April 20, 1889, the midwife came out of a room, and announced
to Alois Hitler that his wife Klara had given birth to a healthy baby
boy. Alois, beaming with pride, announced that the boy would be called
Adolf. With barely a whisper, the most horrific mass murderer humanity
has ever known came into the world.
Adolf, the fourth of six siblings, never got along
with his father, a custom inspector, who ran the household with an iron
ending with a beating of the young Adolf. His mother Klara on the other
Adolf doted on, as well as his younger sister Paula.
