Hitler birth house to be torn down: Austrian minister

The house where Adolf Hitler was born is to be torn down to stop it from becoming a neo-Nazi shrine after years of bitter legal wrangling, Austria's interior minister said Monday.

"The Hitler house will be torn down. The foundations can remain but a new building will be erected. It will be be used by either a charity or the local authorities," Wolfgang Sobotka told Austrian newspaper Die Presse.
