    BERLIN — After years of wrangling over the future of the butter-yellow house in Austria where Hitler was born, authorities have decided to turn the building into a police station, in a bid make it less of a magnet for neo-Nazis.

    With the move, announced by the interior minister Tuesday, Austrian authorities hope to send a clear message to supporters of far-right extremism that the three-story building in downtown Braunau am Inn, near Austria’s border with Germany, will not be a shrine to Hitler.

    “The future use of the house by the police should send an unmistakable signal that the role of this building as a memorial to the Nazis been permanently revoked,” Wolfgang Peschorn, the interior minister of Austria, said in a statement.

    That's a good plan.

    I believe that the Auschwitz Museum (or any Holocaust museum) says everything anyone needs to know about Hitler and his legacy.
