because the person was a collector?  Look at the last few minutes - all that stuff did not seem to contain Nazi material. More interesting is how they acquired it all.

Is it illegal to have Nazi memorabilia in Argentina?

Granted this stuff is illegal in Germany and a couple of other European countries but Argentina?

I thought Argentina had close ties with many Nazis who fled there after the war?

The Police must have raided this property for a different reason and found all this Nazi stuff, I stand to be corrected due to not knowing the full circumstances of the video/raid.

Thanks for sharing this video. Very interesting.

I imagine a lot of this stuff was brought across by the numerous Nazis that fled to Argentina post war.

Amazing find really.

Im from Argentina. I can give some real info of what happened. The Interpol heard or had some information that a collector had items which were acquired illegally. The information said that is was on the northern part of Buenos Aires (Capital City). Interpol uses many Argentinian and the Argentinian Police Force. These artifacts were in red alert by the UNESCO. And with an order they got into the house, and found that a secret passage through a library like you see in the video and they made it to the room. In the video it doesn't show, but there's a lupe with a negative photo of Hitler holding it himself. The photo wasn't shared due to the investigation, but it means there was an item held by hitler.

Wow, so much Nazi-stuff, why would anybody want all that stuff is beyond me. 

Very common for Fascists and Nazis to save relics, in this case an exclusive gallery. The Argentine government knew it was coming in by the ship load. Read up on the Schaumburg-Lippe family and their estancia there.

They were bringing it over during the war. Read up on the Schaumburg-Lippe Estancia in Argentina. Also look into Juan Peron's life.

No, however, it is against the law today in Germany but not Argentina. Argentina has a large population of old Fascist and Nazi families. Particularly Italian and German.

Definitely collector and admirer. A good amount of Nazi ideology still lives in Argentina.

Yeah, not a glorious page in their history books. They must have paid serious cash to the government, why else would they hide such people?
