Included in its pages is a candid shot of a smiling Hitler surrounded by schoolchildren at the Berghof.<br />
<br />
A photo album containing never-before-seen candid snaps of Adolf Hitler that was found in Eva Braun's bedroom drawer in the Fuhrer's Bunker has sold for more than £41,000.<br />
<br />
The remarkable images show the Nazi dictator and his henchmen in rare lighter moments of the Second World War.<br />
<br />
The album, which was unearthed after 72 years, sparked fervent interest and attracted a phone bid of more than double its estimate of £18,000.<br />
<br />
The hammer price was £34,000, with extra fees pushing the final total to £41,140.<br />
<br />
There is one snap of a grinning Hitler in a 'Chaplinesque' pose and offering a playful salute to the person taking the photo outside his Berghof headquarters. Two more show him smiling in front of a crowd of children saluting him.
