Maria Anna Schicklgruber Hitler
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 17, 1785
Death: Jan. 7, 1847

Paternal grandmother of Adolf Hitler - mother of Hitler's father Alois. Maria Anna Schicklgruber was born in the village of Strones in the Waldviertel section of northern Austria. She died in the nearby village of Klein-Motten and was buried at the parish church in Doellersheim. After the Nazi takeover of Austria in 1938, a search failed to find her grave so she was given an "Honor Grave" next to the church wall. This grave was tended by local Hitler Youth groups. In 1942 this area became part of a military training area and the local inhabitants were moved out. Military training continued under the Soviets after 1945, and also under the Austrian Army until ca. 1985, by which time most of the towns and villages were in ruins. The church at Doellersheim is now preserved and undergoing reconstruction. The cemetery is being tended, but there is no grave marker there now for Maria Anna Schicklgruber Hitler.
