DW: Ms. Weidler, what are the items to be auctioned? There are pictures signed and monogrammed "A. Hitler." We have 22 lots; one of them contains an album in which five pictures were glued. What is your favorite picture? That's a question that can't be answered. There's a picture from Hitler's catalog of works that portrays the Brandstätte in Vienna [Eds.: a street in the historical center of the city]. That could be interesting for a collector. Hitler described himself as an "artistic genius." Was he a good painter? He described himself, according to the catalog of works, as a painter until 1920.

How can buyers be sure that … [Read more...] about Hitler paintings on auction – who buys them?
