Saliva samples taken from 39 relatives of the Nazi leader show he may have had biological links to the “subhuman” races that he tried to exterminate during the Holocaust. […]
A chromosome called Haplogroup E1b1b1 which showed up in their samples 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. […]
“This is a surprising result,” said Ronny Decorte, a genetic specialist at the Catholic University of Leuven.
“The affair is fascinating if one compares it with the conception of the world of the Nazis, in which race and blood was central.
“Hitler’s concern over his descent was not unjustified. He was apparently not “pure” or ‘Ayran’.”
It is not the first time that historians have suggested Hitler had Jewish ancestry.
His father, Alois, is thought to have been the illegitimate offspring of a maid called Maria Schickelgruber and a 19-year-old Jewish man called Frankenberger.
I am shocked when people are shocked that DNA tests show that anyone’s DNA is not comprised of the DNA they think it is. Of course Hitler had the DNA of Jewish people and Africans in him. My guess? We ALL do. If not all, the vast, vast majority. There’s probably even a chance that you – yes, you – have some “Arab” in you, some “Asian”, or some “Native American.”
I’m now going to say something completely shocking so you may want to make sure you are sitting down before you continue reading.
“Race” as an idea or concept, it’s made up. Those groups that we divide ourselves into? They’re fake. There’s nothing hard or fast about them. And you know when people are in power, they use their access to bodies (especially men over women) as a way to show that power. That often ends up creating “mixed race” children. And those children just keep mixing up their DNA with other people with mixed up DNA. It’s like it never ends.
Did I just blow your mind?
