Catholic Church where Adolf Hitler's Parents were buried
July 1897: [Hitler] Enrolled in the monastery’s choir and school, Adolf continues to do well, achieving the Austrian equivalent of ‘Straight A’s." He will later recall: "Since in my free time I received singing lessons in the cloister at Lambach, I had excellent opportunity to intoxicate myself with the solemn splendor of the brilliant church festivals. It seemed to me perfectly natural to regard the abbot as the highest and most desirable ideal, just as my father regarded the village priest as his ideal."
May 22, 1904: Fifteen year old Adolf Hitler isconfirmed (Roman Catholic)
at Linz Cathedral. Sponsored by one of Alois’s pallbearers and former customs house colleague,
"Adolf Hitler, son of the Catholic Church, died while defending Christianity. It is therefore understandable that words cannot be found to lament over his death, when so many were found to exalt his life. Over his mortal remains stands his victorious moral figure. With the palm of the martyr, God gives Hitler the laurels of Victory". -Spanish dictator (Francisco Franco, Knight of the Order of Christ) published on the 3rd of May 1945, the day of Hitler's death. ("Reforme", 21st of July 1945.)
