    I have a copy of 'Sport Und Staat' published in 1934. It's in very good condition, with only slight wear on the back cover. Inside front leaf picture of Uncle Adolf.

    This isn't my copy, but here's a look at what it is.

    Nice!

    Another condition though for my MK though (..when I eventually get one) is that it must not contain that dreadful Gothic script

    I can understand German okay but I find that style of writing really difficult to cope with.

    You don't have a copy? I'm surprised really. Unless its totally banned over there.

    I actually have 4 of them in English but no German version yet.

    I do have it in German as an online PDF document but I really want an authentic book from that period.

    When I was stationed in Germany (late 80's) I picked up a copy of The Complete Works of Shakespeare and a copy (in English) of Mein Kampf. Both of these I bought at the post book store, and to my surprise I found that both of them had been printed in Leipzig- in EAST GERMANY- before reunification.

    Top hat belonging to Adolf Hitler sells for €50,000 at auction


    AN AUCTION OF Nazi memorabilia, including Adolf Hitler’s top hat, raked in hundreds of thousands of Euro in Munich Wednesday amid German and international protests.





    The Nazi leader’s top hat sold for €50,000 according to the Hermann Historica auction house website, while items of clothing belonging to his partner Eva Braun sold for thousands each.



    One buyer paid €130,000 for a silver-plated copy of Hitler’s antisemitic political manifesto Mein Kampf that once belonged to senior Nazi Hermann Goering, emblazoned with an eagle and the party’s swastika emblem.

    Other lots of clothing and personal belongings from World War II Nazi leaders like Heinrich Himmler and Rudolf Hess also packed the catalogue pages.

    “The Nazis’ crimes are being trivialised here,” the German government’s antisemitism commissioner Felix Klein told the Funke newspaper group. “They’re acting as if they’re trading in perfectly normal historical art objects,” he said, adding that there was “a danger that Nazi relics become cult objects” for the extreme right”.

    Ahead of the auction, European Jewish Association chairman Rabbi Menachem Margolin recalled that “it is Germany that leads Europe in the sheer volume of reported antisemitic incidents”. “We urge the German authorities to compel auction houses to divulge the names of those who are buying,” he said, saying they should be put on a government ‘watch’ list.

    Many of the items belonging to top Nazi leaders were seized by US soldiers in the final days of World War II.

    The dresses belonging to Braun, Hitler’s long-term companion who was briefly his wife before their death, were found among 40 trunks seized by the US military in May 1945 in Salzburg in Austria.

    Some of the more unusual lots include a copy of Hitler’s rental contract in Munich and a pair of sunglasses worn by a defendant at the Nazi war crimes trials in Nuremberg to avoid the glare of the floodlights.
