Romano-Lukas Hitler’s advances to Ania, a 13-year-old girl, made him a convicted pedophile, states Marco Margaritoff of All That’s Interesting. Romano, who is a self-proclaimed relative of Adolf Hitler, “rejects what he did was wrong.” As stated by news platform Bild, the unemployed 69-year-old responded to an advertisement for a garage, cites Margaritoff. However, Romano eyed, the seller’s daughter.
Ania’s father was oblivious that his ad would attract a pedophile who claimed to be blood-related to the late tyrant. The father recounted that he “put up a garage for sale and Hitler answered the advert.” He found out that Romano, who had a tattoo of a lion on his head, was more interested in Ania than the garage, luring the teenager to the pedophile’s flat with sweets. Romano-Lukas Hitler also purchased clothes and plastic flowers and even proposed to Ania. Ania’s parents discovered that he kissed her. Hence, they “broke off all contact” with the man and “pressed charges.”

Romano denied it happened. However, Judge Ulrich Schettgen said he kissed Ania “against her own will on the neck and cheeks.” The pedophile expressed that he wanted to spend free time with Ania. For Romano, the kisses were “harmless welcome kisses.” Hitler asserted his innocence, but he has been charged and convicted of pedophilia.
It’s debatable whether or not Romano-Lukas of Gorlitz, Germany was actually a relative of Adolf Hitler. Interestingly, the Nazi leader also had a history of pedophilia. In 2015, Romano claimed that “his father was the grandchild of the brother of the former dictator’s father, according to Jessica McBride of privately held U.S.-based digital media Heavy. Simply put, Romano’s great-grandfather was Adolf Hitler’s uncle.
It is said that Romano’s parents fled from East Germany and settled in Slovakia. He was sent to a monastery before a Polish family adopted him. The elderly man’s surname made life more difficult, costing him several jobs. Despite that, Romano owns artwork created by Adolf Hitler. He speaks Polish and “broken German,” as well as being a German citizen since the 1970s. Romano perceives his alleged relative as his “terrible grand cousin.” Tracing Romano’s lineage is one huge puzzle. A DNA test needs to be done in order to buttress the man’s claims. But for now, Romano will remain to be a convicted pedophile.
