The tombstone marking the grave of Adolf Hitler’s parents in Austria has been removed, officials say, to end its use as a pilgrimage site for right-wing extremists.
The grave is in Leonding, 10km (six miles), from the city of Linz.
A descendant of the family made the decision, the mayor of Leonding, Walter Brunner, said.
Adolf Hitler was born near Braunau, 100km away, but spent much of his childhood in Leonding.
Mr Brunner said he had no more details of the decision by the descendant, but welcomed it, the Associated Press reported.
The relative has given up her rights to the rented plot.
