The Austrian Times website reports today (November 16, 2011) that an unidentified visitor to a cemetery in Leonding, Austria has placed a vase on the grave of Adolph Hitler's parents -- engraved with the word "unforgettable" and the letters "SS." ("SS" refers to the Nazi soldiers who served as Hitler's bodyguard.)
According to the state office for protection, the visitor posed as a Viennese artist and "Hitler's grandson."
An increasing number of German skinheads have held vigils around this grave.
Parish Priest Kurt Pittertschatsche -- who is trying to encourage a legal review in the diocese -- said, "We want to find out who the grave belongs to and how often such incidents have occurred."
