    Before my father Benjamin Lee (born Levy) died at the age of 96 he told me he was not my father. You were adopted when you were a year old. So who was my real father asked I? Your father was Adolph Hitler. And my mother Eva Braun I suppose? No your mother was the daughter of a Reform rabbi who had gentile features that allowed him and his family to hide in Berlin during the war. Dementia has really set in methinks. He continues: The gestapo found out and a dossier with photographs was fowarded to Himmler. Impressed by the gentile like appearance of the entire family he sent it to der Fureher. This was right after the Battle of Stalingrad. Hitler knew the clock on his 1,000 year Drittes Reich was ticking and his days were numbered. But what can I leave the world as a reminder of Me he asked? The photo of the 20+ year old rabbi's daughter triggered the idea. Vat could be more diabolical a child with a Jewish mother and Me as the papa. And so I came to be. After birth my biologocal mother and her entire family disappeared. I was put in a diplomatic pouch sent to Switzerland and thense New York City via an adoption agency, It was stipulated the parents to be must be without a child and of mixed-Jewish Christian religions. And here I am. Now dot is funny!
