Bildet av Adolf Hitler synes uforenlig med det å være far, men han kan ha vært det. Bladet Le Point hevder å sitte på nye bevis for at Hitler hadde en sønn, som han fikk med en fransk kvinne han traff på Vestfronten i første verdenskrig.
Le Point har et stort oppslag.
Det er ikke første gang den fremsettes, sønnen, Jean-Marie Loret, skrev en bok om farskapet som utkom i 1981. Nå skal det være fremkommet bevis som underbygger hans historie.
Jean-Mari Loret visste ingenting som barn. Han ble adopert bort, og fikk først vite om farskapet i voksen alder. Det gikk sterkt inn på ham, naturlig nok. Selv i oppveksten hadde han lidd under å ha en tysk soldat til far, men visste da ikke hvem.
Det underlige er også at Hitler ikke brøt forbindelsen til moren, men fortsatte å sende henne penger under krigen.
Jean-Marie Loret, ble medlem av den franske motstandsbevegelsen. Han døde i 1985, 67 år gammel.
Moren, Charlotte Lobjoie, var bare 16 år gammel da de møtte hverandre i 1917. Hun var det man kaller på engelsk, impressionable. Hitler hadde med seg skisseblokken og slik kom de i snakk.
Although he was fighting the French near Seboncourt, in the northern Picardy region, Hitler made his way to Fournes-in-Weppe, a small town west of Lille, for regular leave.
There he met Miss Lobjoie, who later told their son: «One day I was cutting hay with other women, when we saw a German soldier on the other side of the street.
«He had a sketch pad and seemed to be drawing. All the women found this interesting, and were curious to know what he was drawing.
«I was designated to approach him.»
The pair started a brief relationship, which resulted in the birth of Jean-Marie, who was born in March 1918 after being conceived during a ‘tipsy’ evening in June 1917.
En ustoppelig talestrøm
Miss Lobjoie later told Jean-Marie: «When your father was around, which was very rarely, he liked to take me for walks in the countryside.
«But these walks usually ended badly. In fact, your father, inspired by nature, launched into speeches which I did not really understand.
«He did not speak French, but solely ranted in German, talking to an imaginary audience. Even if I spoke German I would not be able to follow him, as the histories of Prussia, Austria and Bavaria where not familiar to me at all, far from it.
«My reaction used to anger your father so much that I did not show any reaction.»
Jean-Marie was, like thousands of other French children with German soldier fathers, badly treated by his peers at school.
He was referred to as ‘the son of the Bosh’, and often had fights as he tried to defend his father, who had by now disappeared over the border back to Germany.
Miss Lobjoie, meanwhile, refused to discuss Jean-Marie’s father, and ended up giving her only son away for adoption in the 1930s to a family called Loret.
His real father would not recognise Jean-Marie, but continued to stay in contact with Miss Lobjoie.
Incredibly, Mr Loret went on to fight the Germans in 1939, defending the Maginot Line before it was bypassed during the Nazi invasion which resulted in France being occupied from 1940 until 1944.
Mr Loret even joined the French Resistance, and was given the codename ‘Clement’.
Just before her death in the early 1950s, Miss Lobjoie finally told Jean-Marie that his father was arguably the most infamous dictator in human history.
Mr Loret said: «In order not to get depressed, I worked non-stop, never took a holiday, and had no hobbies. For twenty years I didn’t even go to the cinema.»
Mr Loret recently began investigating his past in great detail, employing scientists to prove that he has the same blood type as Hitler, and that they even have similar handwriting.
En detalj ved historien er at Lorets barn kan kreve copyright til Mein Kampf, og det kan være snakk om store summer.
Loret skrev en bok som utkom i 1981 om sitt farskap. Den vil nå utkomme på nytt. Det er snakk om en helt rekke nye teknisk bevis som dokumenterer farskapet.
