Hitler's Prison Documents Found In Germany, Bidding Starts at $30,677

(Epoch Times) Adolf Hitler is creating a stir in Germany 65 years after his death. Papers related to Hitler’s stay in a German prison during the 1920s were recently found by an unidentified Nuremberg man looking through his father's estate after his father's death.

The records correlate to a time before the rise of the Nazi regime in Germany.

A recent report from the Associated Press revealed the discovery of lost documents from Hitler’s nine-month prison term in Landsberg, Germany. The papers were reportedly purchased by the diseased man at a flea market in the 1970s. The papers are copies of records from Hitler’s time in a German prison. Only one document contains the late Führer’s signature.

An auctioning hall owned by Werner Behringer will sell the 500 documents in July for a starting bid of $30,677. The papers are thought to have previously been in Hitler's possession.

“The documents appear to be genuine, but to do a real examination we need to have the originals in our hands. His father probably didn't know what he had there,” Behringer told the Associated Press.

Hitler was sentenced to five years in prison but was released after serving less than one year.

Hitler celebrated his 35th birthday in jail and was allowed to have visitors along with a multitude of other perks. The documents outline Hitler’s visitors throughout his prison stay.

"His time in prison was more like a holiday," said Behringer.

While doing his time in prison Hitler began writing his infamous book "Mein Kampf," which translates as “My Struggle.”

Hitler was born in Austria and died in Berlin in 1945. Hitler served as the Führer of the Nazi socialist party that murdered 6 million Jewish people in the Holocaust.
