URO menace Jean-Claude Juncker’s dad fought for Hitler in World War Two.
And his father-in-law was a Nazi sympathiser who persecuted Jews in his home
Juncker, 59, is tipped to be the European Commission’s new president.
But his plans for a bigger EU with less say for the UK have led to opposition
from David Cameron — and The Sun branding him the most dangerous man in Europe.
Sources say the ex-Luxembourg PM’s demands stem from shame over his dad.
Steel worker Joseph was forced to join the German army and fight in Russia
Juncker’s EU colleague Henri Grethen said: “The experience of his
father had a big impact. He doesn’t want the story repeated.”
Father-in-law Louis Mathias Frising — dad to Juncker’s wife of 35 years
Christiane — was a teacher in Ettelbruck, Luxembourg, when the Germans
invaded in 1940.
Frising volunteered to be a Nazi propaganda chief while banning spoken French
in favour of German.
He was also responsible for enforcing a law which stripped Jews of their
rights and professions — the first stage of the Holocaust.
After the war Frising had his teaching licence revoked and set up a DIY shop.
He had two daughters before dying aged 89 in 2004.
A neighbour said: “I knew Louis for 30 years and had no idea he was a Nazi
He kept that quiet because presumably it would have been
politically damaging to Jean-Claude.”
The Junckers live in a £2million mansion near Luxembourg City. His campaign
manager declined to comment.
