BERLIN (AP) – Five watercolors assigned to the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, from the early fighters, did not sell at auction in southern Germany, Nuremberg, perhaps more than the fear that they might be counterfeit
there were no proposals for paintings with initial prices ranging from € 19,000 (€ 21,500) to € 45,000 ($ 50,900).
Three days before Saturday's auction prosecutors confiscated 63 other Hitler's paintings the auction house investigated the allegations they had forged
Last month, in Berlin, prosecutors seized three other Hitler's watercolors when they complained about their authenticity.
Hitler is believed to have painted about 2000 photos as a young man, he fought unsuccessfully to become an artist in Vienna before World War I.
