Hitler relic up for sale

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

THE in­fa­mous tele­gram which Hitler’s deputy sent to him in the dy­ing days of World War II is up for auc­tion. Luft­waffe chief and Gestapo founder Her­mann Go­er­ing sent the tele­gram on April 23, 1945, ask­ing for per­mis­sion to as­sume lead­er­ship of the crum­bling Third Re­ich. The tele­gram sent Hitler into a rage and caused him to strip his suc­ces­sor of power. Now it is to go un­der the ham­mer at an auc­tion house in the US to­day, where it is ex­pected to sell for more than $ 31,000.
