They really should tear it down and put a park or live porn theatre there.

Mentioned before
When West Germany's Chancellor Adenauer, the World Jewish Congress, and Israel began reparation negotiations in 1953, both Austria and the GDR = East Germany refused to participate with the cynical claim that all remaining nazi's and those who 'collaborated' were to be found in West Germany only.

I doubt even Kurt Vonnegut could have come up with that one.

It's too bad the little Austrian couldn't find success as a painter. The World would have been spared a lot of misery.

Here's another view of that. Here in Virginia, there is a train station, preserved as a Historic Site, from the days of Jim Crow. It's located in a town called Beaverdam, VA, close to Richmond. The preservation effort is so that we may never forget the ugliness of Jim Crow and never repeat it. It could be that the Austrian government has a similar interest, never forget, and never repeat, the ugliness that Hitler represented.

That's why they maintain the concentration camp at Auschwitz as a memorial museum. If honors the holocaust victims and reminds everyone of the horrors perpetrated by the Nazis.

Hitler's birth house is fundamentally different. It can't be used to honor the holocaust victims. Leaving it standing only invites modern day, hate filled Nazi lovers to show up and take pictures.

Just tear it down already and put up a dildo factory in its place.

There was a post WWII German joke where a man wants to change his name. 'What's your name' the official asks, 'Adolf Schwein' the man answers. 'And you want to change it to?,' Gustaf Schwein' the man says (Scwein = Pig).

No German needed

Proof, were it ever needed, that Germans don't do funny.
