Stolen Nazi death camp cap back in Polish museum
WARSAW (AFP) - A prisoner's cap stolen from the museum at a former Nazi German death camp in Poland and put up for sale on eBay has been returned, a spokesman for the institution said on Wednesday.
The blue and white striped cap was stolen from the museum at Majdanek more than 20 years ago and only turned up on eBay in the United States this year.
An antiques dealer spotted the advertisement in June and alerted Poland's culture ministry, which then asked the FBI to pull the item. The US ambassador in Warsaw returned the cap to the ministry last week.
"A seller whose identity we don't know put up the cap for auction on eBay for a starting price of $1,750 (S$2,230)," museum spokesman Agnieszka Kowalczyk-Nowak told AFP.
