Hitler Diaries – BBC4, Mon 04, 19:30 hrs

No there were no such diaries, but in 1983 these fakes caused quite a stir - and a lot of money to change hands. BBC4 have a 30 min prog on the saga which should give a brief but interesting summary ;)

Background clicky

Poor Lord Dacre, I don't know how it got taken in by the fakes. They weren't very well done.

"Selling Hitler" by Robert Harris is worth a read which documents this fascinating tale.
The most profiled but not the first time an expert has gotten egg on his face thanks to a fake.

TR militaria is absolutely awash with fakes, everything is or has been faked.
