Some historians believe that Adolf Hitler was a Jew. There claims are based on the fact that his grandmother, from father side, was unmarried and worked as a maid for a rich Jewish family.
His grandmother get pregnant in 42 years, and born illegitimate son, Hitler's father, Alois Schicklgruber. Hitler's real name was Adolf Schicklgruber but his father 1876, took the name Hitler, by his stepfather Johann Georg Hiedler. The name was spelled Hiedler, Hüttler, Huettler and Hitler, and was probably regularized to Hitler by a clerk. The origin of the name is either "one who lives in a Hut" (Standard German Hutt), "Shepherd" (Standard German hüten "to guard," English heed), or is from the Slavic word Hidlar and Hidlarcek. (Regarding the first two theories: some German dialects make little or no distinction between the ü-sound and the i-sound.).
Hitler's father was a drunkard and rapist, and is often abused and harassing of Adolf and his mother Klara, for which he was strongly bound. From her death, he was very shaken, it changed him forever, he never opened him self to anyone, not even to his mistress Eve Brown, that was often difficult for her.
When all this is taken into account, many psychologists believe that this is one of the main reasons for his disrespect for other people's lives, and even when taking into account that he himself doubted that his father was Jewish, it is clear his hatred of Jews.
He hated the possibility that he is half Jew, he considered that as a kind of disease, the virus that can not be cured. So the first thing he did when Austria joined the Axis forces, that he went with the army in Braunau am Inn ( his hometown ), and razed local cemetery to the ground, and so buried all his and their doubts and suspicions that hi is Jewish by origin.

August 2010, The London Telegraph published text:
Adolf Hitler is likely to have had Jewish and African roots, DNA tests have shown.
Saliva samples taken from 39 relatives of the Nazi leader show he may have had biological links to the “subhuman” races that he tried to exterminate during the Holocaust.
Jean-Paul Mulders, a Belgian journalist, and Marc Vermeeren, a historian, tracked down the Fuhrer’s relatives, including an Austrian farmer who was his cousin, earlier this year.
A chromosome called Haplogroup E1b1b1 which showed up in their samples is rare in Western Europe and is most commonly found in the Berbers of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, as well as among Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews.
"One can from this postulate that Hitler was related to people whom he despised," Mr Mulders wrote in the Belgian magazine, Knack.
Haplogroup E1b1b1, which accounts for approximately 18 to 20 per cent of Ashkenazi and 8.6 per cent to 30 per cent of Sephardic Y-chromosomes, appears to be one of the major founding lineages of the Jewish population.
Knack, which published the findings, says the DNA was tested under stringent laboratory conditions.
"This is a surprising result," said Ronny Decorte, a genetic specialist at the Catholic University of Leuven.
"The affair is fascinating if one compares it with the conception of the world of the Nazis, in which race and blood was central.
“Hitler's concern over his descent was not unjustified. He was apparently not "pure" or ‘Ayran’.”
