Was Adolf Hitler jewish?

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

This Question is of great interest to all historians of the Second World War.  So let’s examine some of the factual evidence.  First, understand that this question regards not religion. Adolf Hitler was a baptized Roman Catholic. Nor does it regard ethnicity. Adolf Hitler was an Austrian.  This question regards genetic or blood lingeage, namely, were any of the ancestors of Adolf Hitler, by blood, Jews.  We Christians would ask this question about both the father’s and mother’s sides of the family, since we trace lineage through both.

Here is what Wikipedia says on the topic of Adolf Hitler’s Father:

Hitler’s father, Alois Hitler Sr. (1837–1903), was the illegitimate child of Maria Anna Schicklgruber.[5] The baptismal register did not show the name of his father, and Alois initially bore his mother’s surname, ‘Schicklgruber’. In 1842, Johann Georg Hiedler married Alois’s mother. Alois was brought up in the family of Hiedler’s brother, Johann Nepomuk Hiedler.[6] In 1876, Alois was made legitimate and his baptismal record annotated by a priest to register Johann Georg Hiedler as Alois’s father (recorded as “Georg Hitler”).[7][8] Alois then assumed the surname “Hitler”,[8] also spelled ‘Hiedler’, ‘Hüttler’, or ‘Huettler’. The name is probably based on the German word hütte (lit., “hut”), and likely has the meaning “one who lives in a hut”.[9]

Nazi official Hans Frank suggested that Alois’ mother had been employed as a housekeeper by a Jewish family in Graz, and that the family’s 19-year-old son Leopold Frankenberger had fathered Alois.[10] No Frankenberger was registered in Graz during that period, no record has been produced of Leopold Frankenberger’s existence,[11] and Jewish residency in Styria had been illegal for nearly 400 years and would not become legal again until decades after Alois’ birth,[11][12] so historians dismiss the claim that Alois’ father was Jewish.[13][14]

Adolf Hitler was born on 20 April 1889 in Braunau am Inn, a town in Austria-Hungary (in present-day Austria), close to the border with the German Empire.[15] He was the fourth of six children born to Alois Hitler and his third wife, Klara Pölzl. Three of Hitler’s siblings – Gustav, Ida, and Otto – died in infancy.[16] Also living in the household were Alois’s children from his second marriage: Alois Jr. (born 1882) and Angela (born 1883).[17] When Hitler was three, the family moved to Passau, Germany.[18]

It is significant that Wikipedia on Adolf Hitler ignores the lineage of Hilter on his mother’s side, since Jews determine jewish lineage from the mother. But this is what is found in the article on her:

Born in the Austrian village of Spital, Weitra, Waldviertel, Austrian Empire her father was Johann Baptist Pölzl and her mother was Johanna Hiedler. Klara came from old peasant stock, was hard-working, energetic, pious, and conscientious. According to the family physician, Dr. Eduard Bloch, she was a very quiet, sweet, and affectionate woman.

In 1876, 16-year-old Klara was hired as a household servant by her relative Alois Hitler, three years after his first marriage to Anna Glasl-Hörer. Although Alois’ biological father is unknown, after his mother, Maria Schicklgruber, married Johann Georg Hiedler, Alois was officially designated as Hiedler’s son. Klara’s mother was Hiedler’s niece Johanna Hiedler, who married Johann Baptist Pölzl, making Klara and Alois first cousins once removed.

So, Wikipedia is emphatically silent on the question of whether Hitler was a jew.  But let us see what a Rabbi says about this question, by citing the testimony of Rabbi Ravin S. Antelman from his book, “To Eliminate the Opiate”, 1974, pp. 207-208:

Hitler was really the product of an adulterous relationship between his mother, Klara Polzl, and a Sabbatian Frankist (1861 – September 21st, 1928) who was Hitler’s real father.  The Frankist Sabbateans had a ritual on the 9th of Av, which is observed by Jews as a fast day commemorating the destruction of the First and Second Temples.  This night, the Sabbatians secretly observed as incest and adultery night.  However, there is a persistent rumor that Klara was artificially inseminated that night.
 
Since the Jewish calendar is lunar, 9th of Av can occur in July or August.  Checking the calendar, the 9th of Av, 1888 — the date of Hitler’s probable conception — fell on July 20th, 1888, approximately nine months prior to April 20th, 1889, the birthday of Adolf Hitler.
 
A 1933 New York Times article dealing with Hitler’s alleged Jewish origins maintained that there was Jewish blood on the Stronnes side — Hitler’s maternal grandmother — a family which converted to Catholicism from Judaism in Vienna in the 1850s.
 
Rabbinic Court testimony claims that not only Hitler’s real father was a Sabbatean, but his maternal great grandfather as well; i.e., Klara’s maternal grandfather, who fathered her mother out of wedlock.
 
There is evidence that Hitler maintained close contact with Sabbatians throughout his lifetime.  In fact, his personal astrologer Erik J. Hanussen (murdered in the woods outside of Berlin in February, 1933) was a Sabbatian who was called “the prophet of the Third Reich” and “magician of Berlin”.  His real name was Hershel Steinschneider, born in Vienna in 1889, and he was the first cousin of Moritz Steinschneider (1816-1907), discussed in chapter XII.

Who are the Sabbatians or Sabbateans?

Like many of you, I had never heard of the Sabbateans in my life, until I came upon a reference to them in my studies at the Angelicum in 2011. This group of Jews or ex-Jews are the most influential jewish group in western Europe.

This is what the Wikipedia Article says on them, in the introduction to its article:

The Sabbateans (or Sabbatians) were a variety of Jewish followers, disciples, and believers in Sabbatai Zevi (1626–1676), [1][2][3] a Sephardic Jewish rabbi and Kabbalist who was proclaimed to be the Jewish Messiah in 1666 by Nathan of Gaza.[1][2]

Vast numbers of Jews in the Jewish diaspora accepted his claims, even after he outwardly became an apostate due to his forced conversion to Islam in the same year.[1][2][3] Sabbatai Zevi’s followers, both during his proclaimed messiahship and after his forced conversion to Islam, are known as Sabbateans.[1][3] Part of the Sabbateans lived on until well into 21st-century Turkey as descendants of the Dönmeh.[1]

The Sabbateans in modern times are a sect which believes that it can bring about the coming of a Jewish Messiah, whom we Christians call the Antichrist, if they can bring about the commission of the greatest number of sins possible, and thus invoke God’s wrath.  We Christians would thus call them a Satanic cult, though they would not see it that way.

    1. This article opens a door to further investigation but its conclusion is not certain. A lot of surnames are used by both Christians and Jews in common. That you have one does not mean you are one or the other.

  1. Who knows. When dealing with people of his ilk lies deceptions and general falsehoods are so much a part of their character even if they profess something how are we to know it’s true? I’ve done some research on my own German family tree. Especially among the Jews changes made to the spelling of last names are so common it’s almost impossible to figure out who’s who and what’s what. As for his status as illegitimate. This too complicates things. Back then they didn’t have DNA testing and so forth, it’s almost impossible to prove lineage unless paperwork was preserved that is deemed true. I have had to face this reality in my own family tree. Just recently, since my conversion, the flood gates opened, truth came out about who I am on the Catholic side and why all the secrecy. There was an illegitimate male relative raised in a Catholic orphanage in Paris who is my maternal grandfather back several generations. My maternal grandfather on the other side was stationed in Paris during WWII went to the orphanage to try to find out the truth. From there dead silence until about ten years ago my mother blurted out the name ‘Boucicault’ when the subject came up, along with his first name. I looked him up and there it was. Paris, same timeframe, everything fit. My mother was not one to engage in conversation, about anything, that’s all she said on the subject. I believe it was an act of God that I even got that much information out of her. Researching Boucicault it’s fairly obvious why all the secrecy.
