The Telegraph shared what it called "compelling evidence
" of Hitler's dalliance with a French woman during World War I, based on a report first published by Paris’s Le Point magazine.
When the young Hitler went on leave from trench warfare, he a met 16-year old French teenager named Charlotte Lobjoie. Charlotte recalled how she first encountered Hitler while he was sketching. The two became involved, and a child was conceived after a "tipsy" evening. In March 1918, Charlotte gave birth to a son, Jean-Marie.
In an ironic turn of events, Jean-Marie was adopted by the Loret family, and grew up to became a French resistance fighter
working against Hitler in World War II.
In examining photos of Hitler and his supposed lovechild, The Daily Mail
noted "They share the same piercing gaze, defined jawline and stern mouth set off with a clipped moustache."
The Daily Mail also wrote that five years ago, a similar story made headlines. Allegedly, British aristocrat Unity Mitford may have given birth to a Hitler child as well. However, Jean-Marie Loret's story seems to have more evidence to back it up. Jean-Marie and Adolf Hitler share some physical similarities, handwriting style, and blood type. In addition, Mr. Loret found signed Hitler paintings in Charlotte Lobjoie's attic, and there is evidence that she received money from the German Army during World War II.
Mr. Loret died in 1985, at the age of 67, and was reportedly deeply troubled by his parentage.
