Joseph Goebbels’ love letters fail to attract bidders

     The love letters and other pre-war writings of Adolf Hitler propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels have failed to sell at auction in Connecticut. Alexander Historical Auctions says it offered the letters, school papers and dramatic works of Goebbels on Thursday. The collection spans the period from Goebbels' childhood to shortly before he joined the Nazi party in 1924, reported. Auction officials had hoped it would sell for more than 200,000 dollars. Auction house president Bill Panagopulos says an overseas phone bidder made an offer that was too low. He says the collection will remain for sale, possibly at a lower price, once he talks to the owner. The thousands of pages include Goebbels' college dissertation, report cards, poems, school essays and letters from relatives, friends and girlfriends.
