London, Nov 3: Adolf Hitler’s personal copy of Mein Kampf, which is autobiographical manifesto by the Nazi leader, has been sold for 19,000 pounds at an auction.
According to the Mirror report, the 1932 version of the book fell short of the 62,000 pounds estimate.
Auctioneer Craig Gottlieb, who sold the item on the website HistoryHunter.com, reportedly said that it was the only copy which belonged to the Hitler and the book was far more important than mere signed copies.
Mein Kampf, which translates to “My Struggle” was written by the Nazi leader to outline his future plans for Germany, was published in 1925.
Earlier a new TV documentary revealed that Adolf Hitler had a secret addiction to the drug crystal “methamphetamine”.
The report published in the Daily Star said the Nazi dictator took the drug, nicknamed “ice” or “glass”, which causes paranoia and heart problems.
A new Channel 4 show would reveal how American military put together a 47-page report about Hitler, which stated that he was a hypchondriac and took 74 different medications.
Hitler was believed to have taken the drug before an infamous meeting with Italy’s leader Benito Mussolini in 1943, when he ranted at his fellow dictator for two hours without stopping.
The pill containing crystal meth was called Pervitin and was prescribed by his doctor, Dr Theodor Morell.
