Rare signed copy of Adolf Hitlers autobiography sold for £17,000

Posted by-Kalki Team

This copy of Mein Kampf, with the Nazi dictators signature on the front fly leaf, is especially rare because Hitler was known to be reluctant to sign documents or souvenirs.

Hitler didnt sign books. He did it this time on the request of Unity Mitford (a member of Hitlers inner circle of devotees), James Thompson, auctioneer at Silverwoods in Clitheroe, told BBC News.

Thompson said he was surprised by the interest in the book as most people wouldnt touch anything Nazi with a bargepole. However, others believe the book should be preserved, despite Hitlers appalling reign, he added.

In a way, its a way to touch a monster, he said.
