Nazi artefacts seized by Polish customs from a German citizen
Polish customs officers at the border crossing in Dorohusk (Lubelskie Voivodeship) inspected a vehicle driven by a German citizen and found dozens of artefacts that could have historical value. The found items included a helmet, peaked cap, and compasses, most likely from the WWII era. As the man did not declare carrying the said items, they have been confiscated.
The items were found in a Volkswagen, in which a German citizen wanted to enter Poland from Ukraine.
"After inspecting the boot, personal luggage and seats in the car, the officers discovered dozens of items most likely dating back to the WWII era. The seized artefacts include a helmet, peaked cap, and compasses," the Chamber of Fiscal Administration in Lublin said in a statement.
The man explained he had bought the items online either for personal use, or gifts for his relatives.
"Due to the fact that the items weren't declared, they have been confiscated. Their historical value will now be assessed by an expert," the statement reads.
