(Newser) – The son of a top Hitler aide who was supposedly spending his life atoning for his father's sins is being accused of years of child abuse at a Catholic school. The former priest, son of Hitler secretary Martin Bormann, violently and sexually abused students as headmaster at an exclusive Austrian boarding school at the Hearts of Jesus monastery some 50 years ago, say victims. The top Nazi's son, also named Martin Bormann, now 80, decided to become a priest after witnessing the cruelty of his father and his cohorts during World War II, he has told the press. He said he can't remember any abuse, reports the Independent.
