Seriously. The underwear (I abhor the word panties) you see above just sold at auction $4,619. Why? Because the belonged to Ava Braun. The faithful gal pal of Adolf Hitler.
Now you might wonder what kind of a weirdo would covet such an odd artifact of a maniac loving person of history. But you’ll never know. Both the buyer and the seller remain anon and for good reason. Hard to go into work the next day and everyone know you probably spent the night in 80 year old nazi underwear.
“There continues to be a perennial interest in personal artefacts from such notorious high level WWII figures and accordingly such items, even without provenance, command high prices,” auctioneer Jonathan Humbert said.
The same bidder also bought a stained, white cotton nightgown, also believed to have belonged to Braun, for $3,245. It is a nightshirt of plain A-line form with a frilled upper border bearing Braun’s monogram.
