Controversy in Berchtesgaden: The Führer’s Flagstones (Spiegel)

The Berghof, Adolf Hitler’s mountainside retreat, was completely destroyed by the U.S. Army at the end of World War II. Or was it?

A historian now claims that some of the materials were stolen in the 1990s and reused to built a roadside chapel not far from where Hitler vacationed and hatched many of his plans for world domination. Now, local authorities are wondering whether they should destroy the chapel to prevent it from becoming a pilgrimage site for neo-Nazis .
