He was born in Austria as an Austrian citizen and raised in Linz

and lived in Vienna for a while but moved to Munich (a German city)

at the age of 25. He renounced his Austrian citizenship in 1927,

despite the fact that this made him stateless. He acquired German

citizenship in February 1932. It was granted by the state of

Brunswick, which was ruled by a coalition that included the Nazis.

Under German nationality law at the time, anyone lawfully granted

citizenship of one of the German states automatically acquired

German citizenship.

No, Hitler was born in Austria and was an Austrian until 1932, when

he got German citizenship.
