Rare posters once seized by Nazis up for auction

A COLLECTION of rare posters once seized by the Nazis during World War II have been put up for auction.

The artworks, which carry an estimated value of between $6 million and $21 million, belonged to Hans Sachs.

But the Jewish man’s collection was confiscated by Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels in 1938.
