Hitler’s father was the abandoned son of a young Jewish man. His grandmother worked in this Jewish household as a maid. When she got pregnant with the young man’s child, they kicked her out of the house. This mother had to give her son her last name because she and this young man were not “married”. Hitler’s father was homeless at times and very poor, but most importantly, he was from a broken home – one that only respected family members that were a “legal” part of the family. Even though they did not want Hitler’s father and grandmother, he still had a grandmother, a grandfather, a father, and other family members that did not consider him to be members of their “legal” family. Hitler’s father was the firstborn son of a man who abandoned him for a second woman and her children. This mentally ill family created a mentally ill son and grandson. I wonder just how many of our fathers still, for the same reasons…either divorce or were never married to – abandon their first wife and firstborn children for a second woman and her children? Every child has a father! Don’t let pieces of paper and a lawyer break up your family! Save your first family!
