Adolf Hitler was born in this house in Braunau am Inn, Austria, on 20 April 1889. In 1889 the building was the Gasthof Dafner, and the address was Vorstadt 219 (at some point, when this photo was taken, it was apparently a gas station). (from Heinrich Hoffmann, Hitler, wie ihn keiner kennt (Hitler, As No-one Knows Him), Berlin, 1932)

The house itself is unmarked today, but a rock memorial stands on the sidewalk in front. For the curious, the address now is Salzburger Vorstadt 15. According to a 1939-dated postcard in the author's collection, Hitler was born in the room third from the left on the upper floor (with the open window in the modern photo). (The house presented an appearance of neglect for several years, but was repaired and painted in 2002.)
