Adolf Hitler Kampf
Philipp Bouhler was responsible for the Aktion T4 programme

At the time this dedication was made, Hitler had just left prison and was growing in influence. Bouhler was an enthusiastic member of the Nazi party who was arrested for his part in the Beerhall Putsch.

He was tasked with implementing the infamous Aktion T4 programme, which involved the euthanasia of thousands of mentally ill and handicapped patients across Germany.

He killed himself while waiting to stand trial in Austria in 1945.

A watercolour painting by Hitler was also included in the sale, but was withdrawn for undisclosed reasons.

A silver medal from the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp sold well, realising $12,500.

The lot is one of only 400 silver medals produced for the games and features Belgian sculptor Josue Dupon's Olympic athlete design, with his engraved signature below.
