Austria to turn Hitler’s birthplace into police station

Austria to turn Hitler’s birthplace into police station

Austrian government will turn the house where Adolf Hitler was born into a police station to prevent it from becoming a neo-Nazi shrine. Hitler spent the first few weeks of his life in a flat in the 17th-Century building in the town of Braunau am Inn, near the German border. For decades, the government rented it from its former owner in an attempt to stop far-right tourism.

Why a police station I think it would be hilarious if you turn it into a synagogue.

Comical but really morbid suggestion of what it could have become: Crematorium

I think leave it be with a sign saying "twinned with Anne Frank's house". But I'm a bellend.

Okay look I’m not try to defend the nazi party or hitler but why do we have to keep using government resources to efface things related to them? I mean it kinda reads like an act of desperation on our part that we spend piles of money yearly to try to stop a group of political extremists from congregating somewhere.

There is no right thing to do with Hitler's birthplace. Only Left things to do. :D

pretty much all consider Hitler evil; yet his birthplace will now be associated with law enforcement which constantly falls under scrutiny... am I the only one who can see the possible anti-police propaganda that this could spawn?
