NEW YORK POST:
They’re the Hitlers next door.
Some of Adolf Hitler’s last surviving relatives have been living under the radar on Long Island for decades, according to a new report.
Hitler’s great-nephews Alexander, Louis and Brian Stuart-Houston — the only living descendants of the dictator’s paternal side — live quiet lives in the New York suburbs and fly American flags in their yards, according to Germany’s Bild newspaper, which came knocking at their doors recently.
The three men are the sons of Hitler’s nephew, William Patrick Hitler, who was born in the UK to the Fuehrer’s half-brother, Alois Hitler Jr.
Alois, who left home at 14 and wound up working as a waiter in Dublin, split when “Willy” Hitler was young, according to the New Yorker.
But Willy wound up visiting his estranged dad in Germany in 1929, where he attended a Nuremberg rally. He then returned to the UK and began giving interviews to the press as Hitler’s “English nephew” — until he was summoned to Berlin to face a furious Fuehrer, the magazine reports.
“What did you tell the newspaper? Who gave you permission to appoint yourself an authority on my private affairs?” he fumed, according to Willy’s mom, Brigid.
“No one must drag my private affairs into the newspapers. I have never said one word they can use. And now there is a ‘nephew’ to tell them all the miserable little details they want to know.”
Willy later traveled to New York, where he continued to give lectures on his infamous family, and eventually registered for military service — joining the US Navy to fight in World War II
After the war, he moved to Patchogue with his German wife and changed the family’s name — first to Hiller and then Stuart-Houston, according to Bild.
He died in 1987 at the age of 76, and his now-middle-aged sons have resolutely refused to speak with the media when reporters have come knocking over the years — but Alexander finally broke his silence when Bild showed up recently asking for his opinion on German politics.
