Hitler love letter auctioned but paintings do not sell

A love letter from Hitler to his niece has sold for £2,800 at an auction in Shropshire. But five paintings by the Nazi leader expected to fetch over £24,000 failed to find a buyer at the Mullock’s sale at Ludlow Racecourse on Tuesday. Documents bearing signatures of Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, and right-hand man, Hermann Goering, also went under the hammer.
