A Paris auction house has dropped plans to sell a swastika-covered box that once belonged to Adolf Hitler and dozens of other Nazi-owned objects that were collected as war spoils from World War II, blaming "political pressure".The Vermot de Pas house on Monday canceled the April 26 sale of some 40 items that French forces seized from Hitler's Bavaria home in the waning days of Nazi Germany in May 1945 . Culture Minister Aurelie Filippetti sent a letter Monday to France's auctions authority calling the sale "morally reprehensible" and asking for it to be canceled.
