  2. >The last German air-raid on MerseysideMerseyside took place on January 10,1942, destroying several houses on Upper Stanhope Street in Liverpool. By a quirk of fate, these included number 102, which had been the home of Alois Hitler Jr., half brother of Adolf HitlerAdolf HitlerWilliam Patrick “Willy” Hitler was the nephew of Adolf Hitler. Born to Adolf’s half-brother Alois Hitler, Jr., and his first wife Bridget Dowling, William later moved to Germany and subsequently escaped, eventually going to the United States where he fought against his uncle in World War II The house was never rebuilt and the whole site eventually cleared of housing and grassed over.Rob AinsworthWebmaster/Programme SecretaryLiverpool History Society
