A charity shop is selling what it claims to be the underwear of Adolf Hitler’s wife, Eva Braun, for $7,500 (£4,900). The high-waisted, lace-trimmed, French silk knickers…embroidered with the initials ‘EB’…are on display in a glass case at the Mantiques shop in Elmore, Ohio should you wish to make a bid. There is no suggestion that Eva Braun was wearing the knickers at the time of her death. If however evidentiary provenance in the form of say a video or instagram proved Mrs Hitler was indeed in them at the moment of her demise, well, her cacks would be worth considerably more than $7,500! When a pair of knickers can survive Allied bombing and 70-years, well you’ve just got to admire German engineering, haven’t you? As they say: ‘Vorsprung durch technik’ (Advancement through technology).
