Want to own Hitler’s glasses? His cigarette case? A whole bunch of Hitler memorabilia is going up for sale at the Adolf Hitler auction later this month. Not surprisingly, some people in Germany are a little upset that people will be profiting from the Nazi leader.
Moshe Kantor, the president of the European Jewish Congress, told Fox News:
“As we at the European Jewish Congress try and preserve the memory and historic lessons of this dark period, these types of events are completely counterproductive and damaging toward educating younger Germans and Europeans about the Holocaust.”
Those who don’t object to the auction can pick up a pair of Hitler’s reading glasses for an estimated $7750.
Other Hitler auction items include:
- Hitler’s cigarette case
- A lamp from his Munich apartment
- Hitler’s cutlery with his monogram
- A gold and emerald swastika that was given to Hitler as a birthday present.
- A signed copy of Mein Kampf
Hitler’s gold watch is expected to fetch close to $30,000. The watch was given to Hitler in 1929 and was found on his body after his suicide in 1945.
Do you think the Hitler auction is in bad taste?
