Last Copy of "Mein Kampf" Signed by Hitler

It's going to auction soon.

From a story in Hindustan Times...

The copy is believed to have been signed by the Nazi leader before he committed suicide in April 1945. He gave the book to an unidentified senior member of his staff in what is said to be a last defiant gesture in the hope his Nazi ideology would continue after his death, the 'Daily Mail' reported.

Experts say that his signature at the time was rushed and resembled little more than a squiggle, a reflection of his scrambled state of mind at the time.

The copy of Mein Kampf (My Struggle) was a limited print-run from 1939 to mark Hitler's 50th birthday. Underneath his autograph he wrote the date of March 5, 1945.
