Austria Faces Questions Over Nazi-Era Hitler Bell

| |

An Austrian castle, located 60 miles east of Vienna, has sparked concern after it was revealed that it contains a bell dedicated to Adolf Hitler.

The bell, carved with a swastika, was installed in 1939 by Austrians sympathetic to the Nazis and has apparently evaded notice for over 70 years, according to reports.

The bell tolls every hour in Wolfpassing village and has an inscription that describes Hitler as “the unifier and Fuhrer of all Germans” and says the Nazi dictator freed Austira “from the yoke of suppression by foreign elements and brought it home into the Great German Reich.”

The Austrian government sold the castle to its current owner, Tobias Hufnagl, who has not made public his plans for the bell.
