Need a lock of Hitler’s hair? Who you gonna call?
How about notorious Holocaust denier David Irving? The British ‘historian’ was once found guilty of Holocaust denial in an Austrian court, called an “anti-Semitic” “racist” who “associates with right-wing extremists who promote neo-Nazism” in a British high court ruling and has made a career out of defending the atrocities of the Third Reich.

How the hair of one of history’s greatest monsters found its way into Irving’s possession remains unclear, but he did just make £3,031 (just under $5,000) selling it to Britain’s Channel 4 TV for a segment on their new series, “Dead Famous DNA.”...
