The tombstone is located at the Jewish cemetery in Bucharest Philanthropy and reads in Romanian and Hebrew:
"Here lie the remains of Adolf Hittler. Died October 26, 1892 at the age of 60 years. Pray for his soul,".
The history of the Jewish faith bucarestino of the chronicler of the Jewish Romanian Marius Mircu in a book entitled Philanthropy, a graveyard full of life ., Mircu traced the archives and found that this Adolf Hittler had a workshop and a hat shop on Royal Street Bucharest Romania.
The hatter, Adolf Hittler, left this world when Adolf Hitler, the future Fuhrer of Nazi Germany was only 2 years old. Regardless of pronunciation and similarities in spelling the last names are different.
Andreas Bauriedl, hatter, born 4 May 1879 in Aschaffenburg. Bauriedl was hit in the abdomen, killing him and causing him to fall on the Nazi flag, which had fallen to the ground when its flagbearer, Heinrich Trambauer, was severely wounded. Bauriedl's blood soaked the flag, which later became the Nazi relic known as the Blutfahne.
In the midst of World War II, a cemetery employee noticed by chance on the registration of the stone that apparently there was nothing special.
With Marshal Ion Antonescu Romania from Germany in the war and amid the excitement of the fascist Legionnaire movement, as an example of the risks faced by the Jews of Bucharest, the killing of the Rebellion Legion January 1941 Jews were stripped of their civil rights when they were killed in brutal programs more or less organized or official.
In this climate of terror, Mircu recounts the discovery was a great nervousness among insiders, who rushed to destroy the Romanian text Hittler name. To reach the ears of the authorities Nazi Romanian Legionnaires' or the German representative in Romania may well consider it a provocation.
It took over forty years for the memory of Hittler Hebrew again be honored at the sight. The repair was in 1987 at the initiative of Chief Rabbi Moses Rozen, Iosif Cotnareanu Jewish engineer who worked on the team who rebuilt the monument.
"It was an act of justice, because this man had no fault to have the name he had," he recalls.
Cotnareanu then two years retired contributed to the good of the community their experiences and stonework specialists.
"The memorial (funeral) was not rebuilt exactly as it was, but in a style more common in the 80's. However registration is faithfully respected," says the engineer who coordinated the work.
Today at Adolf Hittler's grave in the cemetery of Philanthropy, only a few onlookers interrupt the peaceful green of the cemetery.
