PAINTINGS BY HITLER DIDN’T FIND BUYERS
Nuremberg, Germany: Five paintings attributed to Adolf Hitler failed to find buyers at an auction Saturday held amid anger at the sale of Nazi memorabilia.
High starting prices of between $ 21,000 and $ 50,000 and lingering suspicions about the authenticity of the artworks were thought to have scared off potential buyers.
The Weidler auction house did not comment on the reasons for the failure but said the paintings could yet be sold at a later date.
Among the items that failed to sell were a mountain lake view and a painting of a wicker armchair with a swastika symbol presumed to have belonged to the former Nazi leader.
