Auction House in Glasgow, Scotland, is offering replica Nazi memorabilia at its auction.
The McTear’s Auction House in Glasgow, Scotland, was found offering “A group of reproduction Third Reich badges and medals” at its Friday, July 29 “Antiques and Interiors” auction, reports The Jerusalem Post.
“We are horrified to see an auction house out of Glasgow, Scotland, selling Nazi (replica) memorabilia,” tweeted the pro-Israel American non-profit watchdog organization, Stop Antisemitism.
“These items symbolize the murder of millions killed during the Holocaust by the SS Nazi regime and should not be monetized,” they added.
This is not the first instance that an auction house offers Nazi memorabilia at its event. In the past, there have been several auctions that sparked outrage among antisemitism watchdogs. For example, the O’Gallerie Auctions in Portland, Oregon, offered Heinrich Himmler’s dagger and sheath for an estimated value of between $8,000 and $12,000 in 2021 before removing the item from the auction, and the Hermann Historica auction house in Munich received intense criticism for selling a large collection of Nazi memorabilia, including some of Adolf Hitler’s speaking notes.
