mein kampfAuction House owner Nate D. Sanders said autographed copies of Adolf Hitler’s manifesto “Mein Kampf” will go under the hammer on Thursday in Los Angeles.

The said copies of the two-volume book are inscribed as Christmas gifts to an officer in the German SS during World War II named Josef Bauer, who was also a participant in Hitler’s failed Munich coup in 1923.

Up for Auction

According to the auctioneers, bidding for the signed books starts at $20,000. They’re expecting the items to sell for around $25,000 when the auction concludes at 10 p.m. EST on Thursday (0300 GMT on Friday).

Hitler laid out in”Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) his vision for a resurgent Germany after World War I and his racist National Socialist political ideology.

Nate D. Sanders said his auction house does not shy away from selling the German Nazi leader’s work.

“I think it’s very heinous; but it is an auction item…it is a memento…it’s a piece of memorabilia, and a piece of history.”
