Hitler death cert’s value is rel­a­tive!

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

THE death certificate of Adolf Hitler and his lover Eva Braun – who killed them­selves at the end of the war – has emerged for sale.

The copy is from 1993 but is rare as such cer­tifi­cates are only is­sued to rel­a­tives of the de­ceased.

This sug­gests that a rel­a­tive of Hitler or Braun ap­plied for the joint certificate which was then is­sued by the Ger­man au­thor­i­ties.

It has turned up for sale at an auc­tion house in Shrop­shire and is ex­pected to fetch over £400.

The certificate records the date of death as April 30, 1945, and even gives the hour as 3.30pm. It is be­ing sold by Mullock’s auc­tions in Lud­low, Shrop­shire, on March 8.

Richard West­woodBrookes, from the sale­room, said: “This is a joint death certificate of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun.

“We’re told it is only pos­si­ble to ob­tain a copy of this doc­u­ment in per­son and only if you can prove that you are a liv­ing rel­a­tive.

“It begs the ques­tion who it was is­sued to.”
