Adolph Hitler Son William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 10-5-20

Adolph Hitler Son William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 10-5-20-–  It has been widely reported by the British press that Adolph Hitler had a son.

While Hitler was a young man on the Western Front during World War I he had an affair with a French teenager named Charlotte Lobjoie.

He would take her for long walks in the countryside where, inspired by nature, he would launch into speeches the mademoiselle did not really understand.

“He did not speak French, but solely ranted in German, talking to an imaginary audience,” she said. “Even if I spoke German I would not be able to follow him”

Her lack of reaction used to anger the future fuhrer so  eventually she just played along and went with the flow.

Hence a son was born  who would be named Jean-Marie Loret after  the family who adopted him.

During World War II, Jean Marie served with the French Army on the Maginot Line and later joined the  French Resistance.

After the war he learned who his father was, a fact which  bummed him out immeasurably.
