'Someone ordered it': Robbers are raiding Dutch museums, targeting their Nazi memorabilia
Netherlands war museums have been hit by teams of raiders bent on stealing their Nazi artifacts, leading a number to beef up security. The Guardian reports that organized thieves are moving in on Dutch institutions that house Waffen-SS gear and other memorabilia linked to the Adolf Hitler regime — gear which appears to be in increasing demand worldwide. No arrests have been made over any of the raids. In recent weeks an overnight burglary at the Oorlogsmuseum in Ossendrecht saw a trove of SS equipment taken, with one pilfered rifle worth almost $80,000. Jan de Jonge, the museum owner, told the Guardian: “They drilled holes in the door to get the handle down from the inside. I didn’t hear anything while I was sleeping on the other side of the wall. “SS uniforms, daggers, helmets, emblems, caps, parachutes, firearms, binoculars, you name it. There’s nothing left. The firearm is very rare, but I was able to display it in this museum. He said the robbers had a target country in mind when they broke in. “(It was all) German stuff, they didn’t take anything from the allies,” he said. “A French corner, English, Canadian: all intact. German material, especially clothing, is rare.” “They took items that can be traded internationally. The collection was private property and not insured. At least 15 dressed mannequins with military uniforms were taken.” Robbers targeted museums in a number of other Dutch cities, with museums moving, as a result, to take famous artefacts out of public view. In Loon op Zand, the local 1940-1945 War Museum put in a better security door, and took away cutlery once used by Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. “Yesterday I took stuff from the Hitler Youth, and uniforms of the SS are also being removed,” Frans van Venrooij, owner of the museum, told the Guardian . John Meulenbroeks of Hooge Mierde’s Museum De Bewogen Jaren, told the Guardian: “It seems like this is on request. Maybe (the items) are already with a collector who is wealthy.” In August, the Guardian reports, some $2.3 million worth of items were robbed from Beek’s Eyewitness Museum. The men knew what they were after, the owner said; after the door was rammed in by a team of six, they made their way to certain artefacts, cutting away glass to get at the riches. Another museum in Limburg was also targeted. “The collection consists only of original pieces and a number of masterpieces that are very rare and precious,” Wim Seelen said. “The only thing I can come up with is that someone ordered it. Many of the stolen items are so unique that you cannot sell them. Our world is a small one. As soon as something emerges from Beek or Ossendrecht, it will be immediately known.”

A Dog Caught COVID-19 In Ontario, But There’s No Need To Panic
A dog in Ontario’s Niagara Region has tested positive for COVID-19, although researchers say most pet owners shouldn’t be worried.Positive tests for COVID-19 in dogs are rare because they are typically asymptomatic and canines get over the ailment quickly.Scott Weese, the chief of infection control at the University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College, is part of a study that found the positive case in the Niagara area. He said that any household where a person has COVID-19 should include their pets in the quarantine as a precautionary measure.“Your dog is less likely to be infected than the people in your household, but it’s possible and we don’t want to create the chance that your dog can pass it on,” Weese said on Monday.He also noted that pet owners should not be worried about their animals falling ill.“It’s a human virus,” said Weese. “It likes people and there are some animal species that can be effected but that’s a spillover.“We’ve got probably not uncommon human-to-dog infection, but the dogs rarely, if ever, get sick.” READ MORE A Flesh-Eating Parasite Is Making Its Way To Canada Through Dogs Dogs Are Being Trained To Sniff Out COVID-19 With Stunning Accuracy Separation Anxiety Is Normal After Months Together. Here’s How To Cope. Other animals, like non-human primates and minks, are much more susceptible to the virus than dogs.Weese said that of approximately 40 pets tested in the study only the dog has been confirmed as having the virus. A cat in the study had some lingering antibodies from COVID-19, suggesting it had once been sick.Testing animals for the study has been difficult logistically. The household first has to discover that a person has COVID-19, then contact the researchers to have their pets checked, and then the test has to be administered within the relatively small window that the animal may be sick.“We’re looking at a few different aspects of (COVID-19) like how it’s moving and if it’s moving between people and animals,” said Weese. The antibody testing — after the virus has passed — is usually how it’s confirmed an animal had the coronavirus, he said.“It looks like it’s probably not that uncommon for people to spread it to their pets and for the pets to not have any consequences from it.”This report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 26, 2020.Also on HuffPost:
