Portraits of Hitler’s Parents Found in California?

By Armchair General

A Fox News story says portraits of Adolf Hitler’s parents have been found in a home at Solana Beach, California, and are up for auction. The portraits of Alois and Klara Hitler, commissioned by their infamous son, disappeared from Hitler’s residence in Bavaria at the end of World War II. They are being auctioned by Paul Gottlieb—who says, "I would stake my entire reputation" that the portraits are authentic,—thinks they may go for as much as $100,000. The Paul Gottlieb Website presently shows the bidding starting at $5,000. The auction is to begin September 1.

At this time, no reports of independent authentication have been made available.
