The Telegram that Made Hitler Kill Himself Nearly Forgotten in South Carolina Safe

Now this is quite a historical find.
A treasonous telegram from No. 2 Nazi Hermann Goering to none other than the führer himself.

A message that, along with the advancing Allied troops, helped drive Adolf Hitler to swallow cyanide and shoot himself inside his underground Berlin bunker.

Despite its influence on World War II, however, the memorandum ended up inside a South Carolina safe, nearly forgotten for more than a decade until a college student made it his senior thesis.

On Tuesday, the itinerant but now infamous telegram sold at auction for $55,000.
Now this is a piece of history like Trotsky's Ice Pick or Martin Luther's (the Nazi Official not the Protestant Reformation guy) Wannsee minutes that doomed millions of Jews. At least this telegram is a good thing though and might have positive karma attached to it.
