‘Mein Kampf’ inscribed by Hitler fetches $64,850

(JTA) — A two-volume set of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” inscribed by Hitler sold at an auction in Los Angeles for $64,850.

The books, from 1925 and 1926, were sold Thursday to an anonymous U.S. buyer. They were inscribed to Josef Bauer, one of the first members of the Nazi party.

There were 11 bids for the set, which had a minimum bid of $20,000 at Nate D. Sanders Auctions.

Signed copies of the book, which details Hitler’s hatred of Jews and lays his vision for the future of Germany, reportedly are quite rare.
