It is not quite Boys From Brazil, but the discovery of a long-forgotten diary of an English soldier has led to a rekindling of the theory that Adolf Hitler fathered a child . . . and the little Führer was French. The diary adds support to claims that Jean-Marie Loret was the son of Hitler — conceived when Hitler lived in France as a corporal in World War I.
The diary belonged to Royal Engineer Leonard Wilkes who kept notes during his service in France. The little blue notebook contains an intriguing passage a few months after Wilkes landed on the Normandy beaches on D-Day in June 1944: “An interesting day today. Visited the house where Hitler stayed as a corporal in the last war, saw the woman who had a baby by him and she told us that the baby, a son, was now fighting in the French army against the Germans.”
Last month, French magazine Le Point ran a story that says that Hitler actually sent money to Charlotte Lobjoie, Loret’s mother. While he never claimed the boy, the magazine suggested that Hitler did recognize his obligations to the mother and boy through the financial support.
Loret worked as a French railway worker before dying in 1985.
Historians have been long divided on the claim of Loret. Frankly, this is one time when it would be better to be fatherless, but Loret insisted that he was the offspring of the genocidal dictator.
