Jean-marie Loret, Jean-Marie Loret, shown in the video framegrab on the right, was told decades ago that his father was one of the most infamous men ever to have lived: Adolf Hitler, left. He even wrote a book on the subject, which sank without trace. Not everyone believed him, but the controversial claim has refused to die.
Jean-Marie Loret was told decades ago that his father was one of the most infamous men ever to have lived: Adolf Hitler.
He even wrote a book on the subject, which sank without trace.
Not everyone believed him, but the controversial claim has refused to die. Now, new research published by a French magazine is giving added credence to his belief.
His mother Charlotte Lobjoie described on her deathbed how the Nazi leader – then a young corporal in the Kaiser’s army – had fathered her child during a brief liaison in the First World War, Le Point reported.
“I was helping make the hay with the other women when we saw a German soldier on the other side of the road,” she told him.
“He had some kind of cardboard and was drawing. I was delegated to approach him and ask what he was doing.”
One thing led to another, and the French teenager found herself left holding the baby, born in March 1918.
Everyone in their village of Fournes-en-Weppe, near Lille, knew Mr. Loret had a German for a father and children at school taunted him by calling him “the son of the Boche.”
Ms. Lobjoie had him adopted by the wealthy family who employed one of her sisters.
While Mr. Loret was shocked by his mother’s revelations, they set him off on a crusade to discover the truth.
The information made sense of things that had seemed inexplicable before.
Although Hitler refused to acknowledge his son, he kept up a correspondence with Ms. Lobjoie and sent money.
During the German occupation of France, this would be in the form of cash, delivered in envelopes by officers wearing the Wehrmacht uniform.
