DNA Tests Find Hitler Not “Pure” Or “Aryan”
German dictator and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler would certainly turn in his grave if he was told that his ancestors were actually Jewish and African. That is what new DNA tests are reported to reveal.
The tests were conducted on saliva samples taken from 39 of Hitler’s relatives. The samples were gathered by a Belgian journalist, Jean-Paul Mulders, and a historian, Marc Vermeeren, who tracked down the relatives.
The revelation of these DNA tests is that the protagonist of the “Pure Blood-driven Aryan theory,” Hitler, actually belongs to the same groups he had pledged to exterminate.
Mulders embarked on the quest to investigate Hitler’s DNA after he came across a napkin dropped by the dictator’s great-nephew, Alexander Stuart-Houston, a New York resident. Another sample came from a farmer, identified as Norbert H, an Austrian cousin of the dictator.
The testing found that a form of “Y” chromosome found in the relatives, though rare in Germany and Western Europe, was quite common among the Jewish as well as the North African communities.
This has led to the genetic experts to speculate that Hitler’s relatives must have been migrants who chose to settle down in his homeland.
According to Mulders, the chromosome is most commonly found in the Berbers of North Africa as well as Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews.
The research findings were published in the journal Knack, which said the tests were conducted under stringent laboratory conditions.
