Adolf Hitler, an infamous figure in history, was a politician who rose to power as the leader of the Nazi Party in Germany. He was the country’s dictator from 1933 until his death in 1945. Hitler’s leadership during World War II was marked by a reign of terror and devastation, which included invading Poland on September 1 1939.
Born in Braunau am Inn, Austria-Hungary, on April 20, 1889, Hitler spent his early years in the vicinity of Linz, the capital of Upper-Austria. In the early 1900s, he moved to Vienna, where he lived for several years before relocating to Germany in 1913.
Travellers on an intercity train in Austria were left shocked when a recording of Adolf Hitler’s speech was played on board instead of the usual announcements. The incident occurred on Sunday when the train, an ÖBB Railjet 661, was on its way to Vienna from Bregenz. In addition to the Hitler speech, the train’s speakers played the sound of a crowd shouting “Heil Hitler”.
According to BBC, Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) has released a statement condemning the incident and distancing themselves from the content of the recording. They also stated that they reported the matter to the police and investigations were underway.
