Maryland Auction House Condemned for $1.1m Hitler’s Gold Watch Sale

  • A Maryland auction house has told Adolf Hitler’s watch for $1.1 million.
  • An open letter from 34 Jewish leaders said the auction, which included other Nazi memorabilia, is an “indictment to society.”
  • They said the auction overrides the “memory, suffering and pain … for financial gain.”

A gold watch given to Adolf Hitler has sold for $1.1million at a Maryland auction house.

Details on the auction house website state that the watch also features two dates, April 20, 1889, Hitler’s birthday, and the second date, January 30, 1933, being the day the genocidal dictator became Chancellor of Germany.
