The house sits on the estate of a former East German, communist-era political training school, and the city of Berlin, which owns the entire property, has begun the process of selling the estate, including Goebbels' former house. The house, which includes a movie theatre, a ballroom with windows that can disappear mechanically into the ground, and a nearby bunker, was built for Goebbels in 1939. Goebbels used the house frequently to entertain guests, including the Czech actress Lida Baarova, with whom he a had a passionate affair until Hitler had her expelled. City officials hope to finalize the sale of the property by 2008. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
