One of the boxes found contained magnifying glasses emblazoned with swastikas. The photographic negative discovered alongside them shows Hitler using a magnifying glass that looks very similar. And so the detectives who found the items asked a historian if they could verify that it was the same object.
“We have turned to historians and they’ve told us it is the original magnifying glass,” the head of Argentina’s federal police, Nestor Roncaglia, told ABC. The negative has since been sent further afield so further investigations can progress. But there was even more to the haul than that.
