Austrian MPs have approved the expropriation of the house where Hitler was born, ending years of bitter legal wrangling, but it was unclear Thursday what will now happen to the building.Several of the 13-member panel were quick to deny that the commission had backed Sobotka's push to bulldoze the building at Number 15 Salzburger Vorstadt Street.Although Adolf Hitler and his family moved away when he was very young, the address has been a thorn in Austria's side for decades, drawing Nazi sympathisers from around the world.The property has been empty since 2011 when Austria became embroiled in a dispute with Pommer, who rarely speaks to the media.Her family has owned the 800-square-metre (8,600-feet) building for nearly a century.Some want the building to become a refugee centre, others a museum dedicated to Austria's liberation from Nazi rule.
