"For years, the government has been mulling a solution for the empty house in the town of Braunau to stop neo- Nazis from visiting the early home of Germany’s former Nazi dictator. The government took a first step in July when it decided to seize the house from its private owner, since she had been unwilling to cooperate with authorities to put it to a new use that would have been in line with its historical significance." 

"However, the building’s foundation will remain intact, and the new house will be used by a charity or by a public authority," Sobotka said. 

The Hitler family lived there when he was birthed in 1889.
