Etching of Hitler playing chess with Lenin to go on auction

An etching showing a young Adolf Hitler playing chess against Vladimir Lenin is set to hit the auction block.

The image is said to have been created in Vienna by Hitler’s art teacher, Emma Lowenstramm, and is signed on the reverse by the two dictators.

Hitler was a jobbing artist in the city in 1909 and Lenin was in exile and the house where they allegedly played the game belonged to a prominent Jewish family.
