Auction of Hitler Box and Other Nazi-Owned Items Cancelled Following Outcry

FSWC Reports:

From the Associated Press:

A Paris auction house has dropped plans to sell a swastika-covered box that once belonged to Adolf Hitler and dozens of other Nazi-owned objects that were collected as war spoils from World War II, blaming "political pressure."

The Vermot de Pas house on Monday canceled the April 26 sale of some 40 items that French forces seized from Hitler's Bavaria home in the waning days of Nazi Germany in May 1945. Passports of Hermann Goering, an aviator's watch, pictures of Hitler and silverware were among the items that were to go under the block.
