Hitler’s Phone, ‘The Most Destructive ‘Weapon’ Of All Time,’ Sold For $243,000

03The tepelphone belonging to Adolf Hitler YM”S was sold at auction in the United States on Sunday for $243,000. The winning bid was made by phone but the name of the bidder has not been released.

The phone was presented to Hitler by the Wehrmacht and was used by the Nazi leader to issue most of his commands during the last two years of World War II, according to a description in the catalog for Alexander Historical Auctions in Maryland.

The phone was recovered from the Fuhrerbunker in 1945 and has been kept in a box in an English country house ever since.

Made by Siemens as a black Bakelite phone, it was later painted red and engraved with Hitler’s name and a swastika, the catalog says.

The auction house describes the telephone as “Hitler’s mobile device of destruction” and called it “arguably the most destructive ‘weapon’ of all time, which sent millions to their deaths around the world.”

  1. Hopefully the buyer burnt it (or plans to burn it with the chometz!)
    I can’t think of any other good reason to spend a cent on this flfthy piece of junk!

  2. It’s a metaphor. After all, he had his phone. And how much did his PEN go for? Amazing how much damage you can do with a pen and a phone.
