Adolf Hitler’s underpants have been sold for £5,000 at an auction in the US

The infamous leader left his pants in the laundry after staying at an Austrian hotel in 1938

THE ‘pristine’ underpants of fearsome führer Adolf Hitler have sold for £5,000 at an auction in the US.

The country had been annexed by Nazi Germany less than a month before Hitler and his henchmen’s stay.
Auctioneer Bill Panagopulos said he believed the underwear was sent to the hotel’s laundry department and were only returned after Hitler and his entourage had check

The seller was the grandson of the hotel’s owners at the time. (Personal opinion of Grumpy.The only smart person in this affair)
Bill, who owns Alexander Historical Auctions in Chesapeake City, Maryland, where the 19-inch long white linen shorts sold for $6,737 (£4,991) to a private buyer, said they were in ‘pristine’ condition.
He added: “People tend to either buy fearsome Hitler memorabilia, or things that make him look like a buffoon. such as this.
“To minimise a monster, you make people laugh at him. We’ve sold underwear belonging to Eva Braun, who was Hitler’s wife, before, but never any belonging to Hitler himself. I think this is the first pair to come to market.
“They were retained in the family who owned the hotel, which is very prestigious, for almost 80 years, and when we got them they were wrapped in tissue paper in a box. They were as clean as if they had just come back from the cleaners.

“It’s a fascinating thing. It’s as close as you can get to Adolf Hitler, literally.”
Bill, 58, who ruled out selling the shorts to any member of the political far right before the auction, added: “I imagine the buyer would probably frame the shorts. It would be the most talked about relic in the house.”
Hitler stayed in the hotel a week before Germany’s annexation of Austria was put to the Austrian people for ratification – 99.7% supported the move – and Bill believes Hitler was touring the country ahead of the vote.
The item’s description read: “A monogrammed pair of Adolf Hitler’s striped white linen under shorts. The shorts are surprisingly large – 19-inches long, with a waist of about 39 inches.
