Hitler’s globe for sale

A globe that once belonged to Adolf Hitler is being put up for auction by the U.S. veteran who found it in Berchtsgaden in the waning days of WW2. The globe – which has a well-documented provenance – is expected to fetch $15,000-$20,000.

The existence of the globe and its intriguing history was unknown to all except for a few close friends of the vet. It makes you wonder how many other fascinating items are tucked away in the attics.  All vets should be encouraged to record the history of their souvenirs so that the significance of their items will not be lost.
