Everyone knows about Adolf Hitler, but the world may be less familiar with his unusually well-traveled toilets.
The commodes associated with archetypical evil have appeared on the public stage recently, after American Michael Borch began to publicize his ownership of a toilet seat hailing from the Berghof, Hitler's mountaintop retreat.

“I think it’s time the story of the toilet should be told," Borch told the Telegraph in December, relating how his father, Sergeant Ragnvald Borch, made off with the bathroom memento after the 1945 fall of Germany.
Another Hitler toilet seat permanently resides in Florence, New Jersey, removed from the Fuhrer's opulent private yacht, at one point the largest yacht on the sea at 443 feet.
An auto repairman named Sam Carlani with a distinctly interesting aesthetic acquired a commode from the destroyed yacht, and proceeded to install it in his shop in the 1950s.

And there it remains — in fact, it's still in use by garage owner Greg Kohfeldt, who thoughtfully commented to Roadside America: "It's not something to be proud of, but it exists."
Surprisingly enough, these aren't the only Hitler-used toilet seats to hit the world media.
In 1969, retired R.A.F. Wing Commander Guy Harris sold off a mahogany toilet seat he claimed to have recovered from Hitler's secret Berlin bunker.
He took it home and installed it in his own bathroom, complete with a commemorative plaque, wrote AAP — and only later realized the potential financial gain he might be able to derive from its sale.
Although it's currently impossible to purchase an Adolf Hitler toilet seat of your very own, German artist Georg Buchrucker recently created some decidedly obscene toilet paper printed with images of Hitler, for sale online.
