Hitler’s wife’s underwear sold at auction

Top Stories

This might be the strangest item you’ve ever heard of selling at auction.

An anonymous phone bidder in the United Kingdom paid $4,600 for this pair of underpants. They apparently belonged to Eva Braun. She was Adolf Hitler’s mistress until 1945, when she married him.

The auction house that sold the panties says personal items from high-level World War II figures typically sell for high prices. The same bidder also bought Braun’s cotton night gown for about $3,200.
