William Patrick Hitler

William Patrick "Willy" Hitler (later Stuart-Houston) (March 12 1911 – July 14 1987) was the nephew of Adolf Hitler. Born to Adolf's half-brother Alois Hitler, Jr., and his first wife Bridget Dowling, William later moved to Germany and subsequently escaped, eventually going to the United States where he fought against his uncle in World War II.

William Patrick Hitler was born in Liverpool, the son of Alois Hitler, Jr., and his Irish-born wife Bridget Dowling. They had met in Dublin when Alois was living there in 1909, and eloped to Liverpool where William was born in 1911. Hitler's nephew is recalled by elderly former neighbours, and in Liverpool folklore variously as "Billy" or "Paddy" Hitler. The family lived in a flat at 102 Upper Stanhope Street, which was destroyed in the last German air raid of the Liverpool Blitz on January 10, 1942. It remained a bomb site for many years, but has now been rebuilt and landscaped. Dowling wrote a manuscript called My Brother-in-Law Adolf, in which she claimed Adolf Hitler had moved to Liverpool with her and Alois from November 1912 to April 1913, in order to dodge conscription in Austria. The story has been popular, but is dismissed by most historians.

William Patrick Hitler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The year 1911 was one of Liverpool's most turbulent. Tension among the city's seamen was to spill over into a general transport strike that would paralyse the "Second Port of the Empire" for 72 days and bring hardship to the thousands of families dependent on the men's wages.


But for a young Irish woman living in a tiny flat at 102 Upper Stanhope Street in the Toxteth area, the times were good. Bridget Dowling had met the man of her dreams at a horse show in her native Dublin the previous year. With his handsome features, fashionable clothes, and handlebar moustache the young Austrian, called Alois, appeared every inch a man of the world.

Telling her he was a wealthy hotelier studying the industry in other parts of Europe, he swept the impressionable 17-year-old off her feet. "Everything he said was so new and interesting that even his broken English seemed charming," she later recalled.

But the course of Bridget's love was not to run smoothly. As the couple enjoyed trysts at Dublin's National Gallery and planned a future together, the girl's father, William, was growing concerned about the relationship. Not least because he had discovered his daughter's suitor was a waiter in the Shelbourne Hotel - a position he had been sent to by a London employment agency.

Pre-empting their disapproval, Bridget and her boyfriend eloped to London and were married on 3 June 1910. The wedding infuriated William Dowling who tried to have Alois arrested for kidnap. But by 1911, peace had broken out in the family and Bridget's father had made the sea journey to Liverpool to attend the baptism of his first grandchild. The child's name was William Patrick Hitler.

Just remembered, the Sunday Press also did something on a dutch nazi collaborator called Pieter Menten who set up house here for a while. And I think they also ran something on Otto Skorzeny (the nazi commando who rescued Mussolini) who (I think) owned a house in Kildare.

Bit of a thing for nazi stories going on there.

How is he Irish? Shouldn't the thread be called "British Hitler"? Or would that not be politically correct?

I'm a 'Closet Nazi'; if a closet doesnt live up to my exacting standards and expectations then it has to go.

End of. :mad:

(Its a variant of the more popular 'Soup Nazi')

Repost from another Hitler thread yesterday (I got some criticism for insulting Hitler by bringing him down to this creep's level):


In fact Hitler escaped from his bunker through a series of tunnels and made his way to the secret laboratory of the brilliant, but fanatical Nazi scientist Herman von Immer-Steifenschwanz. There, in a groundbreaking procedure, his entire personality and complete set of memories were imprinted in the brain of a genetically matched baby, which was then smuggled out of Germany to a remote and backward country off the west coast of Europe.
Some experts believe he would now look like this:
