Took these during the summer but I only got around to sorting them out now. This is Hitler's birthplace: Branau am Inn, Austria.

I mostly photographed the architecture and of course, Hitler's house too.

It is sort of interesting that Archduchess Marie Louise of Austria was formally handed over to a French envoy in 1810 in this town after Napoleon I. took her as wife.

Napoleon have visited this town twice during his campaigns (in 1805 and 1809) and - according to historical records - during those days he resided in the exact house where Hitler's parents later lived.

Seems like a nice typical German town.

There are still living Hitler relatives - at least a show I saw last year on History channel talked about Adolf's extended family.

The show went so far as to state that these relatives live in the U.S. but know nothing of there family history.

Man you thought you had a checkered past!

Pretty little town, that's what I love about Europe...every house has a story. There's an apartment building about 15 minutes from my place (by bike) where Lenin lived while in Geneva before the revolution. There's even a plaque and I read a newspaper article in the archives from the 1970s when they dedicated it in front of a large crowd including the Soviet ambassador.

Yes times change.

If you want to see many traditional-looking old towns, visit the United Kingdom - after all, NOT having foreign armies rolling and pillaging over your land every 30-odd years is a big advantage if you want to have many untouched splendid towns like that.

I'm afraid I don't know that. I would assume she might be but there are also several cemetaries around the region so she might be buried in another one. Also, I would assume her grave might be somewhat nondescript because people might vandalize it because of the name...

Pretty academic, though, and more a development over the last 200 years then anything else. Not that I am a "Heim ins Reich" advocate, but this "oh no, we are german and oh god, we are austrian!" is pretty much artificial by all historic and cultural standarts.

Also, was that Wehrmacht soldier's tomb vandalized? I cant tell if those are scratches on his picture or what, But his widow's picture doesn't have any marks on it. If it was vandalized, just thinkgin of that disgraceful act made me sick to my stomach.

I just noticed now that the "widow" was born 20 years before he was. maybe it's his mother. perhaps it is just weathering on his picture, what I thought was a deep scratch at first I now see was actually the piping on his forage cap that blended into the weathering around it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Philipp_Palm

Johann Philipp Palm (17 November 1768–26 August 1806) was a German bookseller executed during the Napoleonic Wars.

He was born at Schorndorf, in Württemberg. Having been apprenticed to his uncle, the publisher Johann Jakob Palm (1750-1826), in Erlangen, he married the daughter of the bookseller Stein in Nuremberg, and in the course of time became proprietor of his father-in-law's business.

In the spring of 1806, the firm of Stein sent to the bookselling establishment of Stage in Augsburg a pamphlet (presumably written by Philipp Christian Yelin in Ansbach) entitled Deutschland in seiner tiefen Erniedrigung ("Germany in her deep humiliation"), which strongly attacked Napoleon and the behaviour of the French troops in Bavaria. On learning of the violent attack made upon his régime and failing to discover the actual author, Napoleon had Palm arrested and handed over to a military commission at Braunau on the Bavarian-Austrian frontier, with peremptory instructions to try the prisoner and execute him within twenty-four hours. Palm was denied the right of defence, and after a mock trial on the 25th of August 1806, he was shot the following day.

A life-size bronze statue was erected to his memory in Braunau in 1866, and on the centenary of his death, numerous patriotic meetings were held in Bavaria.

It was to Palm that the poet Thomas Campbell was referring when he gave his famous (and possibly apocryphal) toast to Napoleon at a literary dinner. When this caused uproar, he admitted that Napoleon was a tyrant and an enemy of their country, "But gentlemen! He once shot a publisher."

I don't think so. It might be an old photograph that was used and burned unto the marmor, hence it probably shows the stain and decay marks of the time. The cemetary in my own town has various photos with such similar "displays" as well. I suppose it has something to do with pictures taken pre-1960. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
