Recent DNA tests may prove, Adolf Hitler, the man responsible for the deaths of millions of Jewish people and the poster child for racial disdain may have had Jewish and African ancestry.

According to results published in the British magazine Knack, saliva samples were taken from 39 Hitler relatives and the DNA test results prove what would have surely been the Aryan leader’s worst nightmare. He may have had Jewish and African lineage.

The British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported about the findings,

“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 ..”.

“Haplogroup E1b1b1, which accounts for approximately 18 to 20 per cent of Ashkenazi and 8.6 per cent to 30 per cent of Sephardic Y-chromosomes, appears to be one of the major founding lineages of the Jewish population.”

This is not the first time Hitler’s lineage has been up for debate. Some reports claim that his grandfather was Jewish, but this is the first time scientific technology has been used to validate the argument.

Yet, the DNA evidence from Hitler’s kin does not settle the question of Hitler’s race, finally. Knack says that Russia possesses artifacts from the ex-dictator that would contain his DNA, and that testing those items could end all speculation.
