"Hitler's Villa" Closes After 100 Years


A shelter that once housed up to 230 residents has closed its doors today, after the last resident moved out into new facilties. The hostel in Vienna, Austria was home to alcoholics and drug addicts.

In February 1910 it was a home for poor workers with nowhere else to live, including Adolf Hitler, then 20. Hitler lived at the hostel until May 1913. It attracted large numbers of tourists because of this, and is known as "Hitler's Villa".

"I read a great deal then, and I pondered deeply over what I read. All the free time after work was devoted exclusively to study," Hitler went on to write about his years at the hostel.
