No One Wants to Rent Hitler’s Birthplace in Austria

1 minute read

The Interior Ministry of Austria is having a hard time finding a renter for Adolf Hitler’s birthplace in Braunau.

The rent for the 8,600-square-foot home where one of history’s worst villains was birthed in 1889 has become hard to keep up–at 4,600 Euros-per-month–since the building’s last tenant left in 2011, Agence France-Presse reports.

The Austrian government has been renting the building since 1972, but hopes to have a new occupant by 2015. There are stipulations for occupying the building, however—the rental contract says the house cannot be used as a museum, in an effort to prevent neo-Nazis from occupying the space. According to AFP, the space must be used for “social or educational purpose.”
