No, there is no factual evidence to support this rumor. The rumor that Hitler’s grandfather was Jewish began circulating in the 1920’s and gained the notice of the foreign press in the 1930’s. The speculation continued into the 1950’s because of the claim made by Hans Frank, a Nazi lawyer and Governor General of Poland, while awaiting his hanging in Nuremberg.
