Lead:  For Adolf Hitler, the key to understanding history was not economic or morality, it was biology. A person's race determined how they fit into the Nazi scheme of things. That's why Hitler was petrified that someone would find out his family secret.

Intro: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: After the war a file was discovered in the Nazi Archives, a file maintained by no less important person than Reichsfuehrer Heinrich Himmler, Hitler's second in command. The file contained the results of three major Gestapo investigations during the 1930s and 40s into Adolf Hitler's family and background. Considering the great emphasis the Nazi's placed on racial superiority and hereditary traits, the secrets the files reveal would have been very embarrassing to the Party and the Fuehrer himself.
