Because the best way of preventing bad history from repeating itself is erasing all traces of it?

I hope some crooked dealers see his ads and swindle him with a bunch of fakes. A fool like this deserves it.

Maybe he by himself is an ardent TR collector and just created a new way to get cheap items for his own collection

It does not state that anything is being destroyed, only that a phone call will get a quick visit from him and all Nazi era items will be removed for free. Maybe he'd even remove old gold objects not in style any more as well? At no cost, of course.

That's exactly what I was thinking!

Most of the general public aren't so dumb though, they know TR items are worth money and won't just going to hand them over to this muppet.

His website is down, but here is his vimeo. Looking at the topics, seems he has a confrontational- break-the-social-norms/folkways sort of art style. As I teach high school, I can say that its a pretty common "art." Just give me about 45 minutes and I'll come up with some real-time examples. Oh wait, never mind- even sooner!! just saw our pep assembly school TV crew. They are dressed in gorilla costumes for the AM announcements.

What a great way to make the value of my TR collection go up - reduce supply.

Pretty sad to see this happen the destruction and/or thieving of historical artifacts. Many old people will probably fall for this and dump their items in his stupid box.

Luckily it looked like quite a few items were just modern books but still... nothing wiill be done to remove his box that's for sure

The German language ad basically asks if anyone still has the unpleasant reminder of their Grandfather's Nazi past still hiding in the attic to contact him.

My question to him is (since the Japanese refuse to accept or speak of their horrid past).....then what does HE still have in HIS attic regarding his Imperial Japanese Grandfather's past....the rape of Nanking perhaps?, or maybe the Battan Death March?,......what arrogance!

Why would you do that - they are not TR related? As for the 'artist', maybe he should destroy himself as the ultimate self-expression!?
