From Adolf Hitler's Homeland
Following a brief introduction, a short text introduced the reader to the background of the Hitler and Poelzl families in the Waldviertel area south of Gmünd along the northern border of Austria. A rare map shows the area around Weitra, Spital, Walterschlag, Zwettel, Strones, and Döllersheim. A second rare map depicts the Inn or Hausruck area along the German border between Salzburg and Passau, the area where Adolf Hitler was born. A two-page family tree of the Hitler-Hiedler and Poelzl families traces both back to the 1600s and 1700s.
There are full-page photographs with excellent captions of almost any site, building or monument in the area where and his family originated that could be directly connected to Hitler and his childhood. These includes Braunau, the Stift in Lambach, the houses in which the Hitler family lived, old friends of the Hitler family (like Zobl and Ranzmeier), the Leonding cemetery, Hitler family portraits, and even a picture of Hitler’s mother’s sister.
The last two pictures in the book are full-page photos of the Nazi Party Braunes Haus and the exterior of the Nazi Party Publishing House on Tierschstrasse in Munich.
The book is in the style and layout of the Heinrich Hoffmann Photo Books!
