‘Hitler’ paint­ings fail to sell at Ger­many auc­tion

Five paint­ings at­trib­uted to Adolf Hitler failed to find buy­ers at an auc­tion on Satur­day held amid anger at the sale of Nazi mem­o­ra­bilia.

High start­ing prices of be­tween ¤19,000 and ¤45,000 ($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. Nurem­berg’s mayor Ul­rich Maly had ear­lier con­demned the sale as be­ing “in bad taste”.
