The Alleged Last Living Relative Of Adolf Hitler Was Just Convicted Of Pedophilia
A self-proclaimed relative of Adolf Hitler has just been convicted of pedophilia for kissing a 13-year-old girl. According to Bild, the unemployed 69-year-old responded to an advert for a garage, but set his eyes on something else: the seller’s underage daughter, Ania.

Teenager’s Secret Holocaust Diary To Be Published After 70 Years In A Vault
Renia Spiegel had barely reached adulthood when the Nazis murdered her in 1942 after finding her hiding in an attic.
The Polish Jewish teenager had kept a diary since she was 14, filling hundreds of pages. And now, after 70 years in a New York bank vault, we’ll be able to read her story.
Spiegel’s secret Holocaust diary was too painful for her surviving mother Róza and sister Elizabeth to read, though the family has since agreed to let Penguin Books allow the world to do so. Renia’s Diary: A Young Girl’s Life in the Shadow of the Holocaust will be released on September 19.
