Two rare early editions of “Mein Kampf” signed by Adolf Hitler may for more than $20,000 at an online auction on Thursday, AP reports.
Nate Sanders, owner of Nate D. Sanders Auctions in Los Angeles, expects criticism for auctioning the 1925 and 1926 books up for bid. But he says that it’s a piece of history, so it’s cool.
Hitler dictated “Mein Kampf,” two volumes of autobiography and anti-Semitic manifesto, to Rudolf Hess while he was in jail for an attempted coup d’état, to raise money for his criminal defense.
Both volumes’ fly-leaves feature Hitler’s signature with best wishes to his friend for the Christmas season.
Ideal for weddings and bar mitzvahs.
