 Germany trying to retrieve Hitler relics - paper
    LONDON, April 23 (Reuter) - A British newspaper said on
 Sunday Germany is trying to retrieve some of Adolf Hitler's
 relics, including his last will and testament which is said to
 be in a London strongroom.
    The Sunday Telegraph said the relics also included Hitler's
 jawbone and part of his skull which it reported were in a
 cardboard box in Moscow.
    As the 50th anniversary of Hitler's suicide approached next
 weekend, a tussle had broken out over who owned the relics of
 the Third Reich, the newspaper said.
    It said the British government decided long ago that key
 Nazi documents and artefacts should be kept in Britain but bit
 by bit many were being returned at Germany's request.
    ``The transfer of documents back to Germany is a continuous
 process,'' Stephen Walton, curator at Britain's Imperial War
 Museum, was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
    ``It is logical to have the originals in one place for
 scholarly research,'' he said.
