According to MSNBC, there is new evidence that Adolf Hitler had an illegitimate son born in 1918 while he was on leave in France during WWI.

Jean-Marie Loret, who died in 1985, fought during WWII against Germany and the man that evidence supports is his father.

Loret claimed to be Hitler’s son in an autobiography, “Your Father’s Name Was Hitler” that he wrote in 1981. However, the claim was dismissed by historians.

There is new evidence- which includes handwriting analysis, documents indicating Hitler secretly supported the woman financially and paintings signed “Adolf Hitler” discovered in her home- that supports he is, according to a French newsmagazine, Le Point magazine.

Loret’s mother was 16-years-old when Hitler and her began this supposed love affair that lasted for weeks.




About Haley Behre

I graduated from Syracuse University in December 2011 with majors in newspaper journalism and women and gender studies. Using these majors, I aspire to become a journalist who writes about human rights issues. I have held internships at the Syracuse New Times, Dash Media PR Firm, Syracuse Post-Standard and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. I also had an internship at the Not For Sale Campaign Syracuse chapter, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating human trafficking. I was born in Seoul, Korea on September 30, 1990 and moved to the United States before I was one year old. When I was 8, my family and I moved to Norwich, England for three years. While I was here I was immersed into a new culture and got to experience many things other children my age do not get to. Over the three years, I visited Ireland, France and the Netherlands several times, and Belgium, Wales and Sweden once. In the winter of 2010, I got an amazing opportunity to visit Kenya for a month. This was by far the single most eye-opening experience of my life thus far. The natural beauty of the landscape and its people do not compare to anything I have seen. I currently intern for the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press in the hopes of getting a full-time job at a newspaper or non-profit after.
