Myth # 2: Rizal fathered a son and the son is Adolf Hitler by J.A. Carizo
Dai ko pa nadadangog an mga huring-huding na an kan binasa ko su libro ni William Shirer na “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”. Siguro mga 13 o 14 anyos pa lang ako kaito mala ta dai ko pa nasasabutan su ibang mga harararom na English. Base sa istorya ni paderes na saro sa mga Pilipino na nakalibot sa kinaban iyo si Rizal, naihapot ko: Posible kayang si Rizal an naging ama ni Hitler dahil pareho sinda hababa? [I haven't heard of this rumor when I reade the book of William Shirer which is "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich". I was 13 or 14 then that I don't even understand hifalutinous Englis words. Based on my father's story that one of the Filipinos who toured around the world was Rizal, I asked: Could it be possible that Rizal fathered Hitler considering their height?]
But that was just a joke. Bako pa ako conscious sa mga taon. Naisip ko lang dahil an mga Germans kaya haralangkaw pero si Hitler hababa pareho ni Rizal. Mala ta kaipuhan pa ni Hitler an tindugan pag kaipuhan niyang magtaram sa mga soldados niya. [I wasn't conscious of the years then. I just thougght the Germans to be tall persons as opposed to Hitler who has almost the same height as Rizal. To note, Hitler would even use a platform everytime he would like to address his soldiers.] Lately, however, i learned that Hitler’s height could be between 5′2″ and 5′9″ while Rizal’s height is between 4′9″ and 4′11″. Pero dai kaya kinua su average height ni mama ni Hitler saka ni Rizal? Hmmmnnn…. Hapoton ta an mga eksperto sa buhay ni Rizal. [But could it be possible that the heights of Hitler's mom and Rizal's were averaged to get Hitler's height? Hmmmmnnn.... Let's ask the experts on the life of Rizal.]
Pero ano an mga indikasyon kan posibilidad na si Rizal an ama ni Hitler? [But are the possibilities that Rizal fathered Hitler?]
Maliban sa mga physical similarities (broad forehead, hair style, etc.), si Hitler dai sinabi kun siisay an tunay na ama. Adopted son lang si Adolf Hitler ni Alois Hitler. That means, may posibilidad talaga. [Aside from the physical similarities (broad forehead, hair style, etc.), it was not recorded who is the real father of Hitler. What is known is that Adolf Hitler is an adopted son of Alois Hitler. This means, there is really a strong possibility that Rizal is Hitler's father.]
Kan panahon na naglalamiyerda si Rizal sa Europa, iyo man an panahon na ipinagbados si Hitler [Hitler was born during the time that Rizal was wandering in Europe] Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 and months earlier,Rizal was lingering there romanticizing with women and at one point, sleeping with a prostitute . Mala ta sabi niMaximo Viola: [As Maximo Viola wrote]
In one of our tours of that city, he encountered the figure of a temptress in the form of a Viennese woman, of the family fo the Camellias or Margarite, of extraordinary beauty and iresistible attraction, who seemingly had been expressly invited to offer for a moment the cup of mundane pleasure to the apostle of Philippine freedom who until then had enjoyed among his intimates the fame worthy of his glorious namesake St. Joseph.
With the exception of this case I knew of no other slip of Rizal during more than six months of our living together.
There are claims that the woman is Klara Polz, the mother of Adolf Hitler who also happened to be the woman who found Rizal’s diamond pin. It was said that when Rizal had a grand tour in Europe, he lost his diamond stickpin in Brunn, Austria. But when he went to Vienna, Austria, the diamond stickpin was returned to him by Blumentritt. Sabi ni Blumentritt [Blumentritt said], the stickpin was found by a hotel maid. Si Klara daw yun. Kaya may naghahapot, papaanong nangyari na su nawara sa Brunn itatao saiya sa Vienna which are miles apart? And paano nasiguro kan maid na dapat itao kay Blumentritt? Which leads to the idea na baka may pagkasinabot-sabotan na sinda Rizal asin Klara. [That was Klara. Hence, some asked: How can it be that what was lost in Brunn will be given to him in Vienna which are miles apart? And how certain is the maid that the stickpin should really be given to Blumentritt? Which leads to the idea that Rizal and Klara could have an intimate understanding.]
On the time that Hitler was born, Rizal was again in Europe from May 24, 1888, until October 18, 1891. He visited London, Paris, Brussels, Madrid, Biarritz and Ghent. In short, Rizal was in Europe during the time Hitler was conceived and when he was born.
Another thing is from Vienna, Rizal travelled the Danube to Linz. And he fell in love with Linz. Surprisingly, Hitler also loved Linz and called it his hometown base sa autobigraphy ni Hitler na Mein Kamf.
Could just these be coincidence? If yes, then Leuccipus who said that “Nothing happens at random but out of reason and out of necessity”, is wrong. Even the saying that “God destined everything under heaven” will also be ruled out of order if it is really a mere coincidence.
A highly regarded colorist, muralist, and abstractionist, Pancho M. Piano is known for his spontaneous visuals characterized by distinct linear style.
He straddles between figurative and abstract genres, both of which he handles with skill and confidence.
In his work, he uses various media such as stained glass, fiberglass, canvas, and wood to create works of inspiring beauty.
Born to a humble family, his talent in drawing and illustration shone at an early age. He finished his Bachelor of Arts, Major in Economics at the University of Nueva Caceres. Later, he took up Fine Arts in the University of the Philippines, with a scholarship granted by then Dean Jose Joya, his mentor.
Pancho has completed about 150 commissioned works, mostly on Bicol history and culture. He has mounted various solo shows and group exhibits in the Philippines and abroad: The Hague, Milan, Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Düsseldorf, Brussels, Berlin, Vienna, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Japan, and Spain.
These trips abroad have broadened his perspective on the latest trends in art which enriched his worldwide view as an artist.
A world-class artist, Pancho essentially remains a Filipino and a Bicolano in his life and art, a role model to his Kababayan, who rose from humble beginnings to share his gift of art with his countrymen.
Para makilala ang Bikolano, kilalanin ang mga hindi kilalang Bikolano dahil sila ang nagpapakilala sa Bikol na kilala natin, hindi ang mga kilalang Bikolano na walang kinikilala kundi ang mga kanila lamang.
