Hitler's Copy of "Mein Kampf" to be Auctioned with Other Personal ItemsBreaking News
tags: Hitler, Mein Kampf
Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler's copy of "Mein Kampf" – his self-written autobiography and political hopes for Germany which also includes his genocidal plan for Europe's Jews – will be offered for sale by Maryland auction house Alexander Historical Auctions (www.historyauctioneer.com) on March 17th and 18th, along with over one thousand other World War II historical items.
Hitler's own copy of his twisted work was captured by members of an American field artillery unit attached to the 45th Infantry Division. At war's end, these men made their way into Hitler's Munichapartment searching for war trophies. After this book was discovered, eleven officers signed the first page documenting their find: "From Adolph Hitlers apartment in Munich on May 2 1945." This rare 1927 edition is bound in red leather and has the title in gold print attached to its spine. It was kept by a soldier's daughter until only a few years ago.
Other personal items once owned by Hitler and being offered for sale include etched drinking glasses, engraved table silver, books from Hitler's library at the chancellery in Berlin and documents and photographs signed by Hitler.
