A French plumber convinced he is Adolf Hitler’s grandson is undergoing a DNA test to prove it.
Scientists will compare genetic material from macabre pieces of skull and jaw bone reportedly belonging to Nazi leader, and held in a vault by the former KGB in Moscow, with a sample of Philippe Loret’s saliva.
The Frenchman is convinced his late father, Jean-Marie Loret, was Hitler’s illegitimate son.
He thinks he was conceived long before the tyrant led Germany into the Second World War.
Phillipe, 62, believes his grandmother Charlotte Lobjoie had a fling with the Nazi leader, then a young German corporal, fighting in northern France in the summer of 1916.
Now state-run Russian television channel NTV has taken a DNA sample from him and brought it to Moscow to be tested against genetic material from Hitler’s remains retrieved by Stalin’s forces which stormed the dictator’s Berlin bunker in 1945.
The channel quoted Phillipe as saying: “Rossiya proshu pomoschi” (Russia, I beg for help).
The NTV presenter said: "He is ready to repeat this line in broken Russian endlessly: ‘Russia, I beg for help.’
“We are his last hope.
“In the Russian archives are kept the jaw and a fragment of skull of Hitler, perfect genetic material for a DNA test, which can finally prove that Philippe Loret’s grandfather was the most horrible slaughterer in human history.
"Deep in his mind, Philippe Loret is sure without any DNA that he is Hitler’s grandson.
“But the DNA test can unconditionally prove this story.
“Philippe Loret’s DNA test is now in Moscow.
“The solution of the last mystery of Hitler is coming.
“And this means that the Hitler’s fate is again in Russia’s hands.”
Phillipe said: “There are always some doubts, but if DNA test is negative – well, there’s nothing to do then.
“If positive – my thoughts will be confirmed.
“Actually, either result will be good, as it will be some result.
“If it is negative, I need to find out who my real granddad was.
“All what I want is to find the truth. It is a search for the truth.”
There is some evidence supporting his contention.
As a child he recalls he father sitting him and his six siblings down and saying: “‘Kids, I’ve got something to tell you. Your grandfather is Adolf Hitler.’
"There was stunned silence as no one knew what to say," he said.
"We didn’t know how to react.”
Then there is the family likeness and the fact that his father – allegedly Hitler’s lovechild – had the same blood type as the Nazi leader.
A diary entry on September 30 1944 by royal engineer Leonard Wilkes – one of the first to land on Normandy beaches in D-Day – stated: "An interesting day today.
"Visited the house where Hitler stayed as a corporal in the last war, saw the woman who had a baby by him and she told us that the baby, a son, was now fighting in the French army against the Germans.”
A Hitler painting dated 1916 depicts the 19-year-old Frenchwoman as he met her – in the hayfields with a red scarf over her head blocking the sun.
She wore a light-colored shirt, open from the neck down, exposing part of her breasts, and holds a pitchfork in her hand.
Hitler was 28 at the time and she approached him when she first saw him to ask what he was painting.
The baby was conceived after a “tipsy” night.
But Hitler did not speak French and she had little German.
"When your father was around, which was very rarely, he liked to take me for walks in the countryside," she said.
"But these walks usually ended badly. In fact, your father, inspired by nature, launched into speeches which I did not really understand.
“He did not speak French, but solely ranted in German, talking to an imaginary audience.
‘Even if I spoke German I would not be able to follow him, as the histories of Prussia, Austria and Bavaria were not familiar to me at all, far from it. My reaction used to anger your father so much that I did not show any reaction.”
Hitler treated her well and was a ‘good lover’, said Philippe, but he was easily jealous.
“Apparently he was a jealous person and did not like other men giving her the eye," he added.
