Hitler’s Toilet Is in New Jersey

(though about linking the image, but decided against it for obvious reasons.)

According to Kohfeldt, the toilet came off of Hitler’s biggest private yacht, the Aviso Grille, which was between 400 and 500 feet long, and at the time one of the biggest private boats in existence. “He wanted to ride it down the Thames in London and go live in Windsor Palace when he invaded,” Kohfeldt told me on a subzero morning last week as he pulled a sink—also from the ship, and now in pieces—out of a box and laid them out for me to examine each of the maker’s stamps and faucets. Another resident of Florence, Dick Glass—an expert on Hitler’s yacht—told me that the ship was armed, had a crew of 245 men, a private room for Eva Braun, and was bigger than J.P. Morgan’s ship Corsair. The Aviso Grille also played a significant role in one particular moment in history: Hitler’s Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz stood on the deck of the ship on May 1, 1945, and gave the first word of the Führer’s death and took command of Germany.

11. And this is how it ended up in NJ:

After the surrender of Germany the 'Grille' was handed over to the British, then in 1946 she was sold to Lebanon and operated cruises in the Mediterranean. As an extra attraction she was given the name 'Boudoir Eva Braun', even though Eva Braun never actually stayed on the ship. In March 1947 she was involved in a collision and from November 1947 she was laid up in Beirut.

In August 1949 she was sold to America for scrap and was scrapped in Bordentown, New Jersey, in 1951.

16. The Vince Lombari Service Plaza


It's not at an exit.

They were going to put it at the Molly Pitcher service plaza, but Lombardi won the toss and elected to receive.
