    Ha ha. The authors state the skull examined was that of a woman and that he died in 1962.

    Ok, i'll rephrase that. The authors state that the skull examined was that of a woman and that Hitler i fact died in 1962 in Argentina.

    I remember watching a documentary a few years ago and a chambermaid said she would see Hitler regularly in the house she would tend. I think it was Argentina (like you mention Ged). If top Nazis managed to escape capture via South America, why couldn't the top man? But how could someone of that magnitude avoid bringing attention to himself? Surely it would be common knowledge.

    Isn't there documented proof that Hitler's brother Alois lived in Upper Stanhope Street?

    I think it's fact,that Alois did live in Stanhope st,till the family emigrated to the U.S.,but the rumours that Adolph stayed there,are fictional! But who knows?

    Bridget: Many times Adolph would go out in the evenings to political meetings. He would return, wild-eyed and full of anger.

    After a time, he would fall into a depression and would sit brooding in front of the fire.

    Once I heard him mutter: “Vot ist “Calm down, calm down”.

    I wonder if he avoided capture in Argentina by shaving his muzzy off.

    I always wondered why he slipped in that reference to banning scouse at the Nurenburg rally.

    All Reich, calm down! Hitler 'spent months living in Liverpool flat' that was later destroyed by the Luftwaffe

    Adolf Hitler spent five months in Liverpool, wandering around the city and relaxing in the Poste House pub, pint in hand.

    He also enjoyed a sightseeing tour of London and was so fascinated by Tower Bridge that he bribed his way into the engine room so he could see the machinery at work.

    The claims come from an author exploring a long-held theory that the 23-year-old Hitler shared a flat in the city before World War I.


    Hitler's local: The Poste House pub was a favourite haunt of the future Fuhrer when he lived in Liverpool, the documentary claims


    Hitler's old street: Actor Paul McGann in the BBC documentary exploring Hitler's supposed stay in Liverpool

    Young man avoiding a war? Adolf Hitler came to Britain to allegedly dodge being conscripted into the Austrian Army before World War One (picture taken in 1923)

    In his book, The Hitlers of Liverpool, Mike Unger claims the future Fuhrer fled to Merseyside from Vienna, to avoid national service. He says Hitler stayed in a flat in Toxteth with his married half-brother Alois from November 1912 to April 1913.

    Word on the street is that he supported The Blues whilst here, as of course he was a committed "Anti Red"
    Can just see him with a sausage roll (vegetarian) and a brown ale on Gwladys Street

    Brown ale? I thought he was a teetotaller, at least that is what Rudolf Hess told me.

    It's the same old story heavy night on Higsons brown in the 1913/14 would turn anyone a teetotaller, and I wouldn't believe everything Hess says to you , I remember back in 1940 he said he could fly a plane to Berlin blindfolded at night..........

    Oh well, the Mail got the Post House bit wrong when it was actually Peter Kavanaghs.

    I found this by chance in an Echo from 22nd August 1972, around the time the story really picked up, saying Alois Hitler's son was in his scout troop.

    The post house mix up is to do with the ripper I think

    So, with evidence to say Hitler was in Vienna between 1910 - 1914, during the period he was supposed to be in Liverpool, I was right in thinking this story had been poo pooed.
