Tests on the saliva of dozens of European and American relatives of Adolf Hitler confirm that the Nazi leader had the chromosome Haplogroup E1b1b1, which is "rare in Western Europe and is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, as well as among Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews." It has long been believed that Hitler had a Jewish grandfather, and these findings seem to corroborate such suspicions. "The affair is fascinating if one compares it with the conception of the world of the Nazis, in which race and blood was central," says genetic specialist Ronny Decorte. “Hitler's concern over his descent was not unjustified. He was apparently not 'pure' or ‘Aryan.’” Kind of a hypocrite, that Hitler.
