In a dramatic discovery, police in Argentina believe they have found the largest collection of Nazi artifacts in the country's history.
The trove, which was found in a hidden room in a house near Buenos Aires, includes a bust relief of Adolf Hitler, magnifying glasses inside elegant boxes with swastikas and even a macabre medical device used to measure head size.
The Washington Post reports that the items were put on display at the Delegation of Argentine Israeli Associations in Buenos Aires on Monday.
The discovery of the 75 objects in a collector's home in Beccar, a suburb north of Buenos Aires has grabbed international attention. Authorities suspect the artifacts are originals that belonged to high-ranking Nazis in Germany during World War II.
"Our first investigations indicate that these are original pieces," Argentine Security Minister Patricia Bullrich told The Associated Press on Monday, saying that many pieces were accompanied by old photographs. "This is a way to commercialize them, showing that they were used by the horror, by the Fuhrer. There are photos of him with the objects."

Apple reportedly getting ready to open new stores in Mexico and Latin America
by Vlad Dudau
According to a credible rumor, Apple is currently on the verge of launching a major retail push in Latin American countries, including Mexico.
The news comes from Apple Insider, whose report is quoting unnamed sources familiar with the matter. According to said report, Apple is gearing up to open a big flagship store in Mexico City, with construction being already underway.
In total there will be two new stores in Mexico City, these being only the third and fourth Apple Stores in Latin America, after the company opened two pilot locations in Brazil. But the company’s plans don’t end there.
Seemingly wanting to breathe new life into Apple’s retail strategy, the company’s SVP of Retail, Angela Ahrendts, wants to expand even further into other cities in Mexico as well as other countries like Chile and Argentina.
It’s not exactly clear when all of these locations will open up but there are indications this is a long-term strategy, so depending on your location you might still have to wait a while before getting to see one of the new stores.

Attorneys for Google and Yahoo appeared in a Buenos Aires court to respond to accusations that searches on their websites link the name and photos of a popular Argentina model to sexually-oriented websites.
Mar?a Bel?n Rodr?guez is suing the search engines, alleging they linked her name with terms like "sex" and "pornography."
Rodr?guez told CNN her pictures would be wrongly used mainly in two ways: An unauthorized picture could be used to lure Internet users to an X-rated site, taking advantage of her popularity in Argentina, or within adult websites that contain pornographic images of other people.
Rodr?guez, 30, originally sued Google and Yahoo in 2006. After an eight-year legal battle, the case has worked its way up to Argentina's Supreme Court.
In 2010, the model was awarded a combined judgment against both search engines of 120,000 Argentine pesos, almost $15,000. The search engines appealed and a higher court later lowered the amount to about $6,200.
Earlier this week, Rodr?guez told CNN the use of her image by sexually-oriented websites has deeply damaged her reputation.
At the court hearing Thursday, attorneys for Google and Yahoo suggested search engines are neutral platforms that don't create or regulate content on the Internet, and therefore, are not responsible for how the model's image is used by third parties.
