Hitler Picture Disc

I am working with a private collection and have come across a particular "picture disc" vinyl record that has me very curious of the value. Apparently, when played, it is believed to be Hitler speaking on the record (obviously in German and the record itself has some German writing on it). Another fascinating element is that in the same plastic sleeve there is a picture of the Beatles' "butcher block" album cover.

Now, the Bealtes often referred to their relationship with Capitol Records as "Hitler-like," so these two items were together for a reason and adds a certain provenance (as well as who owned it) to the whole package. Anyone with any information or know anything about this record, I would appreciate your input.
