In a dramatic discovery, police in Argentina believe they have found the largest collection of Nazi artifacts in the country's history…

These heinous symbols extolling the superiority of the Aryan race should be destroyed immediately. They should not be auctioned off to be bidded on by sick rich collectors.

They should go to a museum, It is History no mater how bad and evil the Nazi's were.

I agree; they need to go to a museum. If we erase the bad in history then future generations will not learn from the mistakes of the past.

From what I read on the issue, the collection was/is
hardly a 'secret'.

It sounds like quite a treasure trove. I do hope it is kept and displayed for all to see. We cannot destroy this stuff and then act all surprised when some idiot reinvents this wheel. Education and truthful information is what can save people from having to relive such atrocities.

28mmF- Not to glorify those things, but I was wondering at what temperature they start to burn ?

I agree, a museum would be the best option.

What I don't understand and that I haven't seen anything about in the various new stories is what laws were broken? Is it illegal to posses this sort of memorabilia in Argentina? Were they stolen? Why were the police involved?

Kind of a non-news item I would hav been more impressed if they had found a secret collection of Nazis.

Did they find the UFO base that goes with the collection.

And no, historical artifacts should not be destroyed because of what they represent.

I agree with jdginaz – given Argentina's record on harbouring Nazis after the war – probably some sad local collector cannot imagine any Nazi fleeing in 1945 lugging that heavy Eagle emblem with them.

History is history … we may not like it. But we have to accept the Good, the Bad & the Ugly of it. Study it, don't cover it up. Don't forget what happened. Regardless how morally bankrupt, etc., the participants were.

What's that old saying about ? Something like "Failing to learn from history, and one is bound to repeat it." Or something like that.

Did they find the UFO base that goes with the collection.
Shhh ! That's Classified !

alex757, there are anti-anti-Semitism laws in Argentina that might include banning having these sort of relics.
