Hitler house in Austria to be demolished after long row
Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka said a committee of experts had decided that the house should be demolished, reported Austrian newspaper Die Presse. A new building put in its place will be used for administrative or for charitable purposes
An interior ministry spokesman told AFP a legal amendment proposed earlier this year which would allow them to seize the property was still "under way", meaning parliament has yet to approve the demolition.

As terrible as history might be, it is important to show it bare naked and truthful - Hitler was born in a sleepy Austrian town and wasn't summoned from the pits of hell to pose a menace to humanity. The truth must be preserved and told and I don't think it does the historical record any good for this town to try and distance itself from Hitler.
I don't like the idea of government stealing a guys house.

I'd actually be okay with it being a holocaust museum to honor the Jews that were killed. If it's going to be a shrine, then let it be a shrine to Jews, not to Hitler.
