    Don't know about the signature's originality, but I know IAA, the vendors, haven't got the best rep in the business. They were doing the same thing at the Radisson Heathrow last time I stopped there, they throw in a few 'celebrities' to get people to go in, Buzz Aldrin the astronaut was there amongst others. I can fully recommend the English breakfast there though, it's one of the best i've had in any hotel anywhere, although at around 18 it should be.

    I know this Mengele "signature". This is a clipping of a document that he supposedly completed when applying to join the SS. The section where his grandparents names had to be filled in was cut out - his grandfather's full name was cut into two separate small pieces, this one above and another that I have seen elsewhere. At best, it is not his signature but his handwriting.
