Repatriate all Nazi Artifacts to Germany?
Archaeo-blogger Paul Barford has suggested that Nazi artifacts should be repatriated back to Germany. Presumably, such a rule could take in a huge amount of material, including many "battlefield souvenirs." But why does Barford once again only pick on Americans to do the repatriating? If he is really serious about this proposal, I think he should press it first in his native Poland. Sure, Poland suffered grievously from Nazi aggression, but should that factor be considered at all as part of the mix?
