Hitler’s watch sold in controversial sale

Hitler’s watch auctioned. Jewish leaders take strong objection.

Where: Maryland

The Facts

A watch alleged to have belonged to Adolf Hitler has sold for $1.1M at an auction in Maryland.
The front of the watch has a black dial bearing the name Huber and on the back of the gold case are engraved a swastika and the initials “AH”.
The auctions were criticized by several Jewish leaders.
The European Jewish Association stated in a news release, “In an open letter co-signed by 34 Jewish leaders, the Brussels-based European Jewish Association (EJA) called for Maryland-based Alexander Historical Auctions to abandon its sale of a slew of Nazi objects.”
Rabbi Menachem Margolin stated, “The sale of these items is an abhorrence. There is little to no intrinsic historical value to the vast bulk of the lots on display.”
