It’s said to be the place where Hitler planned his greatest World War II atrocities. The wooden desk with four lockable drawers was taken from his Reichschancellery in Berlin after the war.
It then spent nearly 40 years in a rest home for US soldier’s in Berlin. It was modernized during that time, with fax and telephone lines added.
Then in 1996, it was given back to Germany and had been placed in storage and forgotten.
Since its rediscovery German officials say they realize the desk would bring a fortune if sold. However, they say that won’t happen.
“The desk is, and remains, the property of the Federal Republic,” spokeswoman Jacqueline Besse told The Daily Mail.
No word on whether the desk will be displayed or remain in storage.
