HITLER'S FAMILY: IN THE SHADOW OF THE DICTATOR -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY



[Narrator] In 1945, two more relatives joined Hedwig and Alois Hitler in the Hamburg district of Fuhlsbuttel.

Hans Hitler, a distant cousin of the Dictator, and his wife, Erna, who had worked for Alois.

Auntie Erna wanted to write a book about the family.

[Alois Hitler's foster daughter] She was shrewd enough to quiz him and to ask him details which she soaked up and probably used in her manuscript.

[Narrator] Erna Hitler wrote a 400-page family history.

It was never published.

[Erna Hitler] A considerable part of what I know comes from the recollections of Adolf Hitler's half-brother, and I shall start with the family history as it really happened.



[Narrator] The manuscript starts with Hitler's childhood in Braunau am Inn.
