They Saved Hitler's Records

Nearly 100 records that may have been owned by Adolf Hitler have surfaced in Moscow recently. The records, now worn and scratched, were stored in the attic of a former Soviet intelligence agent, who left a note saying he took them from the Reich Chancellery after the fall of Berlin in 1945. The records include the works of Tchaikovsky, Borodin and Rachmaninov, and prominent Russian and Jewish musicians, notably Bronislaw Huberman, a Polish Jewish violinist.
