Joseph Goebbels Archives Go on Block

The pre-war archives of Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda, who was with Hitler from the earliest days, will be put on auction in the United States this week.

Alexander Autographs, one of the largest auction houses for rare historical documents and manuscripts, is offering the rare archive for a starting price of $200,000 on September 20 and 21.

“It is the most important cache of World War II autographs to ever become available for sale. This massive historic grouping contains nearly the entire literary legacy of Joseph Goebbels, heretofore unknown to the general public,” says Bill Panagopulos, president of Alexander Autographs.

“More importantly, it may prove invaluable in providing historical and psychological insights into the mind of Goebeles,” he adds.
