    Default Delich treasures, baubles from the basement of the Fuehrerbau

    As Bob Coleman will remind us, the U.S. side came into possession of the Fuehrerbau in Munich, where a GI found these things that are today the proud property of my mentor, David Delich.
    This is not SS, per se, but it is very nice and deserves our admiration.

ID:	640329More of these items, and a kind of pleasing image of O'Keefe, so typical of his generation now vanishing, the generation of my father, too, when military service was a normal part of citizenship and not that of a caste or debased by being contracted out to Landsknechte.
    damit, basta.

    Wonderful items from what was likely the largest treasure chest of exotic souvenirs found in the European theatre. I of course exclude the finds of gold and art which could not be taken home by the average GI.

    While certain U.S. Army civil affairs troops were devoted to the preservation of historical objects and works of art, especially those collections put in safety from the bombs and such, US soldiers, despite what George Clooney might believe, absconded with real historical art works and such in more than insignificant numbers. Looting, plunder, booty and war are all sides of the same thing.
    These items gotten by O'Keefe in 1945 had no value at the time, and the value we assign to them is wholly in retrospect.

    We aim to serve. Thanks to you for making this site the place to put such things, and thanks to my mentor Dave Delich for his support of this site with his fine collection.

    One of a kind item that today is a real treasure to collectors. Superior workmanship is obvious.
