A 1932 edition of the Nazi leader's autobiography was found in Der Fuhrer's Munich apartment and liberated by a G.I. in 1945. Dealer Craig Gottlieb: 'This is not your run-of-the-mill copy of 'Mein Kampf.'
The original copy of Hitler's autobiography 'Mein Kampf' is being sold online by Craig Gottlieb Militaria Auctions.
Whose kampf? His kampf.
"This is not your run-of-the-mill copy of ‘Mein Kampf,’" said antiquities dealer Craig Gottlieb, who is hawking the 1932 edition of the self-aggrandizing tome on the website HistoryHunter.com.
The book was part of a group of Hitler’s personal belongings that was liberated from Hitler’s Munich apartment in 1945 by US Army 1st Lt. Joseph Ben Lieber, said Gottlieb, who bought it last year along with the Fuhrer’s hat, shirt, medals and other personal belongings.
"The chain of custody of the book is unbroken since 1945," said Gottlieb, who estimated it could fetch $100,000. "This particular artifact is one of the most profound in the group, which makes the provenance that supports the artifact so crucial to its value."
