IN A HIDDEN room in a house near Argentina’s capital, police believe they have found the biggest collection of Nazi artifacts in the country’s history, including a bust relief of Adolf Hitler, magnifying glasses inside elegant boxes with swastikas and even a macabre medical device used to measure head size.


Some 75 objects were found in a collector’s home in Beccar, a suburb north of Buenos Aires.


Authorities say they suspect they are originals that belonged to high-ranking Nazis in Germany during World War II.
“Our first investigations indicate that these are original pieces,” Argentine Security Minister Patricia Bullrich told The Associated Press, saying that some pieces were accompanied by old photographs.

This is a way to commercialise them, showing that they were used by the horror, by the Fuhrer. There are photos of him with the objects.

Among the disturbing items were toys that Bullrich said would have been used to indoctrinate children, a large statue of the Nazi Eagle above a swastika, a Nazi hourglass and a box of harmonicas.

I've always wondered what happens to these finds ?
Do they get locked away in a secret vault or destroyed ?
Can't see them getting sold.
Anyone know ?

I got first dibs on the Nazi cat !

Many nazis supposedly fled there after the war, including the notorious dr Joseph Mengele, so findings like this are to be expected.

Upon his death all Hitler's possessions became the property of the the local government in Bavaria with the exception of his art collection. This is held in archive by the federal German government, approx one third of it has been returned to it's owners, the remaining work is in storage with the government who process any claims to ownership. Not sure what they do in Argentina.

What happened to the remnants of the British Empire left behind in Ireland?

I imagine they will be sold to museums, or private collectors interested in the macabre vestiges of history.

Dear old Oliver. You have to bring him everywhere twice!
Cruimh no doubt considers Cromwell to have the greatest British person of all time.

The scumbag you took your screen name from was also a great admirer of Oliver Cromwell.

John Toland a scumbag!

You're a keeper, you really are.
As someone from a Gaelic Catholic background taking your screen name from that vile forger and all around slithering creep is actually really disgusting given what the ideology he promoted did to your ancestors.

I see you don't like him. Why don't you start a thread where he's on-topic?
