Adolf Hitler’s son Jean-Marie Loret wants his Mein Kampf royalties

ADOLF Hitler had a son called Jean-Marie Loret. Jean-Marie died in 1985 aged 67. He never met his dad but as Paris’s Le Point magazine reports, he did fight the Germans in World War 2. Indeed, it can now be said that Hitler won!

The story goes that Hitler shagged a Charlotte Lobjoie, 16, back in June 1917. Hitler might have been fighting the French, but he managed to reach Fournes-in-Weppe, where he wooed and squired Jean-Marie’s mum.

As she told her son:

“One day I was cutting hay with other women, when we saw a German soldier on the other side of the street.”

(Cue Banarama: When this boy started following me. (Oh yeah). Now I ignored all the things he said (Do-wah do-wah) He moved me in every way…)

“He had a sketch pad and seemed to be drawing. All the women found this interesting, and were curious to know what he was drawing.”

(He was really saying something (Saying something) Really saying something (Saying something) Bop bop shoo be do-wah Bop bop shoo be do-wah)

“I was designated to approach him.”

(My heart started thumpin’ / Blood pressure jumpin’)

“When your father was around, which was very rarely, he liked to take me for walks in the countryside. But these walks usually ended badly. In fact, your father, inspired by nature, launched into speeches which I did not really understand.”

(He was really sayin’ something…)

So. To shut him up she shagged the 28-year-old?

“He did not speak French, but solely ranted in German, talking to an imaginary audience. Even if I spoke German I would not be able to follow him, as the histories of Prussia, Austria and Bavaria where not familiar to me at all, far from it. My reaction used to anger your father so much that I did not show any reaction.”

And then you shagged him?

And so to a throbbing soundtrack of ranting and more ranting, Jean-Marie was conceived. At school, he was called ‘the son of the Bosh’, and that’s not praise. But dad had long since legged it back to German.

Said Mr Loret:

“In order not to get depressed, I worked non-stop, never took a holiday, and had no hobbies. For twenty years I didn’t even go to the cinema.”

Just like his dad.

Francois Gibault, Mr Loret’s Paris lawyer, tell the mag:

“He first came to see me in 1979, but was a bit lost and did not know whether he wanted to be publicly recognised as Hitler’s son, or to erase all that completely. He had the feelings of many illegitimate children: the desire to find a past, however heavy, but also the fear of returning to the old routine. I talked with him a lot, playing the role of psychologist rather than lawyer.”

And Mr Loret had children. And nwo thsoe kinder might be able to cash in by claiming royalties from Mein Kampf (‘My Struggle’), the book Virgin and Waterstone’s say is a cracking read.

Of course, the challenge will be if Hitler had any more children. Or where in his older years he was just very fond of cats…
