Prisoner’s cap from Nazi camp that was put up for sale on US auction site returned to Polish authorities
Thursday 29 August 2013
US ambassador Stephen Mull has returned to Polish authorities a prisoner’s cap from the Nazi death camp of Majdanek that was spotted on an online auction site in the United States, priced at $1,750.
The grey and blue cap had been stolen from the Majdanek museum, in eastern Poland, before 1995, when visitors had easy access to exhibits.
An anonymous caller notified Polish authorities in June that the cap was for sale and the FBI helped to retrieve it. Mr Mull handed it to Poland’s Deputy Culture Minister, Malgorzata Omilanowska, today.
