Watercolors and sketches attributed to Adolf Hitler went on sale Tuesday, as military buffs and curious neighbors gathered in this small Cornish town for an auction of scenes depicting cottages, churches and pastoral hillsides. "This was not Hitler the military man or Hitler the dictator who had done these paintings and drawings," said Mike Palmer, 51, who attended to see what the fuss was all about. Terry Betts, 52, said the attention was good for the town, which depends on tourism. "I don't have any trouble with the auction at all," Betts said. "It's part of history, not good history maybe. But we live with dictators like that now - don't we? - the Saddam Husseins of the world."
