The unusual historical item will be auctioned at the Alexander Historical Auctions LLC in Chesapeake City, Maryland on February 8th.
The toilet seat measures 19 inches from back to front and is 16 inches wide. It also has two photographs of the soldier Ragnvald Borch and his immediate superior officer at the Eagles Nest at Berchtesgaden. The toilet seat also has a satirical anti Hitler newspaper clipping. The soldier’s family who has the seat said the item remained untouched in the basement of the family’s home.

When Hitler reportedly committed suicide with his girlfriend at the time, there bodies were never found and when they dug his grave out, after a DNA test it was determined that that was not Hitler. Till today, no body knows where Hitler’s body is.
