Hitler had an illegitimate son

Hitler's heirs : Did Hitler have a son after all?

Jean-Marie Loret, a Frenchman who died in 1985 and who claimed to be the son of Adolf Hitler, may have been right. The magazine "Le Point" spread new evidence that supports the thesis. According to military records, Hitler allegedly paid alimony to Loret's mother, Charlotte Lobjoie. Pictures painted by Hitler also show this woman.

Hitler and the alleged son have the same blood type, are outwardly similar and they have a similar handwriting. The case is being followed closely by the US media. The "Time" magazine raises the question of whether the descendants of Loret are entitled to royalties from "Mein Kampf". Officially, Hitler had no children.

Loret appeared at the Paris lawyer Francois Gibault's office at the beginning of 1979 and said: "Maître, I am the son of Hitler, what do you advise me to do?" said that in 1917 Hitler seduced a 16-year-old girl by the name of Charlotte Lobjoie as a soldier in France in Fournes-ewn-Weppe near Lille. During World War II Loret joined the Resistance and it was not until the 1950s that his mother revealed to him who his father was.

In a book with the title “Ton Père s’appelait Hitler” (your father was called Hitler) he then spread his mother’s story, which he had kept to himself all these years, in public. The question of whether there was a Hitler son was answered in the affirmative by the historian Werner Maser, but was rejected by his colleagues in his guild.
