    Moritz sounds Jewish. He looks like a Southern European to me.

    ,,Sein Geburtsort war vermutlich ein Findelhaus in der Alservorstadt, von seinem Vater ist nichts bekannt”

    about his grandfather

    RENATO ATTILO BLEIBTREU was born in an orphanage. There is no information about his father

    Even in austria and germany his ethnicity is discussed

  4. neiltennant says:


    actually it was his grandfather with the missing link

  5. neiltennant says:


    there is a missing link in his ethnic background

    the grandfather of his late mother – Very popular german-austrian actress Monika bleibtreu had a grandfather with the name


    mind the name RENATO ATTILO (sounds very italian )

    but on the other hand it may have been only his first name

    but what i think is very interesting

    in the 1930s this relative wanted to become member of the nationalsocialist party but was declined
    because it was unknown who his father had been

    therefore he did not obtain the membership !!!!!
