a most odd story about how the Irish sister-in-law of Hitler and her son Patrick escaped to the US

imagine having this as your family secret



Bridget Dowling was a Dublin native who married Alois, Adolf Hitlerís half brother. She bore a son, Patrick who had four children himself, two of whom survive. The sons grew up on Patchogue, Long Island.

The sons are among the only remaining blood links to Adolf Hitler and the two surviving brothers have no children so if they remain that way the Hitler Irish and American link will die out.

Bridget Dowling Hitler is one of the most intriguing tales of the Second World War and the Irish connection.,

She was just 17 in the summer of 1909 at the Dublin Horse show when her father fell into conversation with a handsome foreigner Alois Hitler, who told them he was a businessman on a trip to Ireland.

He wasnít, he was actually a penniless waiter in a Dublin hotel but Bridget fell in love with the exotic foreigner anyway


They eloped to London and were wed. He was the future Fuehrerís eldest half brother. Their common father Alois Senior went through three marriages and eight children, including Adolf and Alois.

4. That is some secret.

 

I saw a program on t.v. about this family. I can't recall the channel though.

As I recall, Patrick tried to turn his relationship into some coin before he became a foe.
