BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — Argentinean federal police discovered original Nazi objects from World War II, including tools for Nazi medical experiments.
The objects were found on Friday in a hidden room of a house located in the northern part of greater Buenos Aires.
The objects are now in the custody of the justice who is tasked with investigating the find.
“We are too shocked, too touched by the impressive finding but also happy” to have made this find, Argentine Security Minister Patricia Bullrich, who defined it as: “the biggest seizure of archeological objects and Nazi pieces of our history,” said Tuesday in a statement accompanying a video published on her You Tube channel to show objects from the seizure.
The judge in the case is Sandra Arroyo Salgado, the widow of prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who earlier this year visited Israel.
The judge imposed a gag order on the investigation so no further details were revealed. But the security minister said she will ask the judge that the objects be donated to the Holocaust Museum of Buenos Aires.
