    I'm surprised no-one has commented on this yet. It will be interesting to see how much the photo goes for. What is also interesting are the comments left at the end of the article by the readers. Some of them are very educational!

    You're right Ade, interesting commentary after the article. I agree with the guy that said it's the same photo, from a slightly different angle, that has been published for years, what's the fuss! Why would it be worth so much? Now, if that vile ever showed up and had documentation supporting authenticity, they would get some crazy money bids.

    Agreed. In this case provenance is everything. Similar photos have been published many times in many different places, I think the big deal is because unless you study or have a passing interest in WW2 and the fate of the Nazi hierachy, it would be easy not to come across these images and therefore to have the above published in your daily paper may come as a bit of a shock if you didn't know they existed. That said, newspapers sometimes publish far worse!

    You are right,most folks are not as obsessed as some of us are. p.s. I have not received my invitation to the Royal Wedding yet I wonder if it has been mis-posted.
