Five watercolors attributed to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler failed to sell at auction this weekend, possibly over fears they could be fakes.
The Nuremberger Nachrichten newspaper reported Sunday that no bids were received on the paintings, which had starting prices of between 19,000 euros ($21,500) and 45,000 euros ($50,900).
Three days before Saturday's auction, prosecutors reportedly seized 63 other paintings attributed to Hitler from the auction house to investigate allegations they were fakes.
