Dilemma for Austria over Hitler's birthplace

The Austrian government is trying to work out what to do with the house in which Adolf Hitler was born.

For years the interior ministry has rented the property in the village of Braunau in order to prevent its misuse by neo-Nazis.

It used to be a day care centre for disabled people but is currently empty.

A Russian MP recently offered to buy the house to destroy it, the offer was rejected.

Bethany Bell visited Braunau to see the house.
