Hidden trove of suspected Nazi artifacts found in Argentina

Hidden trove of suspected Nazi artifacts found in Argentina

Some of the 75 objects found in the collector's home include a bust of Adolf Hitler, magnifying glasses in elegant boxes with swastikas and a macabre medical device used to measure head size, the Associated Press reports. "There are photos of him with the objects", she said.

Among the 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.

As part of the operation, the police also seized a number of rare artifacts from Asia and Ancient Egypt, including 3,000-year-old animal mummies that they said were likely to be sold on the black market. Police are now investigating how exactly the artifacts made it into Argentina, thinking, perhaps, about which Nazi leaders may have entered the country unbeknown to the world. Interpol then started to follow the collector of the Nazi artifacts and armed with a judicial order, on June 8, they conducted a raid of the collector's residence.

Police said it was clearly targeted at Muslims and Prime Minister Theresa May described it as a "sickening" terrorist attack. Mother-of-four Nicola Senior, 43, is walking back from taking her children to school when she stops to take in the scene.

According to the Head of the Argentine Federal Police Nestor Roncaglia, the operation was the result of an investigation aimed at "protecting and recovering cultural property", which was of illegal origin and hidden behind false walls. The collector has not been arrested, but a federal judge has reportedly an investigation going on into his actions and the items found in the hidden room. The leading hypothesis, so far, is that the times were brought into the South American country after World War II by either a high-ranking Nazi or by Nazis, at a time when Argentina was a refuge for Nazi war criminals. After the Israeli Mossad agents managed to capture Holocaust mastermind Adolf Eichmann from Buenos Aires, Mengele, who was known as the "Angel of Death" during World War II, moved to Paraguay. Mengele later died in Brazil in 1979 while swimming in a beach in the town of Bertioga.

The Argentinian police did not say which high-ranking official may have been the owner of the collection, but the medical instruments found inevitably brought the doctor to mind. Nazis believed that one could distinguish a Jew from someone belonging to the supposed Aryan race by head measurements.

"This is unheard of in the Argentine Republic".
