Hitler's DNA Test

Updated on December 4, 2011

Adolf Hitler

Hitler's Roots Are Traced

The German dictator, Adolf Hitler is believed that he might have had some ancestry he wouldn't have appreciated. His DNA tests result showed that he is apparently to have been descended from both Jews and Africans.

Knack, a Belgian news magazine, a journalist and a historian teamed up to hunt down 39 relatives of the past Nazi leader. Samples taken from relatives of the Nazi leader show that he is biologically linked to the 'sub-human' races he wanted to eliminate. They took saliva samples from each and scrutinize the DNA for key indicator that can denote ancestry by knowing what other groups of people bear the similar markers. According to the research, Hitler's "genetic fingerprint" is found in 25% of Greeks and Sicilians, and up to 80% of North Africans, a trait that is extremely exceptional in Western Europe. It is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, in Algeria, Libya and Tunisia as well as between Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews.

Another stanch marker in Hitler's DNA points out a strong association with the Ashkenazi Jews. In the middle ages, Ashkenazi is a sub sect of Jews who mostly established along the Rhine. It was recorded that the majority of Jews killed during the Holocaust were of Ashkenazi descent.

The outcome of this report are unexpected leading into some speculations that Hitler would not have been happy all along.
