HITLER'S FAMILY: IN THE SHADOW OF THE DICTATOR -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
[Adolf Koppensteiner, Hitler's second cousin] We all hoped they would return one day. But it was not to be. They never came back. Not one message, not one letter. We heard absolutely nothing.
[Narrator] Adolf Koppensteiner was six years old when he lost his parents.
[Adolf Koppensteiner, Hitler's second cousin] To
be honest, I'm still scared today. I often feel scared.
[Narrator] It's the fear of having to pay for his great-uncle's crimes, sixty years after the war's end.
Only one member of the Hitler family could free himself from the Dictator's thrall. His nephew, William Patrick Hitler.
He left Germany before the war.
In 1939, he and his mother went to New York, and he changed sides.
