Seven of Adolf Hitler’s paintings have been found . . . in a Czech convent.
Czech historian Jiri Kuchar found them in the convent in the town of Doskany, north of Prague. The historical value of the collection could see them fetch £1.7million at auction.
One of the paintings is called Memories of Stalingrad and shows wounded German soldiers sheltering in a trench during a battle. Despite the massive defeat that Hitler’s forces suffered at Stalingrad by Soviet forces, the painting is believed to be one of the Fuhrer’s favorites.
It is believed that Hitler ordered that the paintings be hidden in a monastery in Bohemia. However, the art collection was discovered by American forces and taken to a collection point.
What is it with the former Czechoslovakia? First they name a bridge after Chuck Norris, and now they’re hiding Hitler paintings.
