Hitler's Watercolors Up for Auction
Found in a Belgian attic, 21 watercolors believed to be painted by Adolf Hitler during WW1 are to be up for auction by Jefferys auctioneers in England today. Alongside of two pencil sketches that were also attributed to Hitler, the 23 pieces of artwork were commented by the auctioneers as "not great artwork", but it is believed that they would sell at high prices. Families of Holocaust victims and Holocaust survivors criticized the auctions, calling it "a slap in the face".
