    Eva Braun's Knickers Sell At Auction For Almost $5,000

    Hitler's wife's knickers sell at auction for almost $5,000




    (CNN) A pair of underpants believed to have belonged to Adolf Hitler's wife, Eva Braun, sold for nearly $5,000 at auction on Thursday.
    The monogrammed pink silk knickers, which came from a private European World War II collection, sold for £3,700 ($4,620). The anonymous phone bidder also bought Braun's cotton nightgown for £2,600.

    British auction house Humbert & Ellis also sold a gold-plated bracelet bearing a swastika, which belonged to the wife of Nazi leader Hermann Göring.

    Eva Braun was Hitler's mistress, and later wife. She married him in 1945 and died by suicide with him the day after they were married.

    "There continues to be a perennial interest in personal artefacts from such notorious high level WWII figures and accordingly such items, even without provenance, command high prices," auctioneer Jonathan Humbert said in a statement.

    The auction house said the items were bought by an unknown UK bidder.



    It is not illegal to sell Nazi memorabillia in the UK, but some auction houses refuse to sell such objects.

    "It has long been our view that it is not appropriate for items like this to be on the market for personal profit or macabre interest but rather placed in archives, museums or in an educational context," Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, told CNN.
    "Several leading auction houses and online sites already rightly refuse to sell such material and many countries have banned the sale of Nazi memorabilia. Perhaps it is time for clearer regulation on the sale of these items here in the UK," she added.

    I wonder if there is any DNA proof. I hope those panties are not soiled.

    The cotton nightgown (it looks like a camisole to me) is gorgeous, but silk underwear is usually vile in my opinion and comparable to synthetic material. Luckily, it seems like there is a cotton insert there, and there is no machine-made lace in sight, which is a big plus.

    I doubt very much they're authentic.

    These sort of stories just keep the 'Nazis' in the (fake) news.
