Adolf Hitler paintings to go under the hammer in Germany

Breaking News

One of Adolf Hitler's best paintings will be auctioned in Germany next month.

Three watercolours depicting cottages, mills and churches nestled in rural landscapes will be auctioned on Sept 5, Weidler's auction house in Nuremberg said on Thursday.

The three paintings are dated from 1910 and 1911 and originate from Vienna where Hitler spent several years as a struggling artist. He then joined the army and fought in World War One.

The auction house is expecting a five figure sum for each picture. Earlier this year, Weidler's sold two other watercolours by the Nazi leader for a total of 32,000 euros (£28,000).
