Texas – San Antonio – World War II and the Holocaust document thief discovered by owner arrested – 20-year-old Mansal Denton – an INTERN

Mansal looks Middle Eastern but has a VERY dutch name.  Hmmm.  Can’t judge a book by the cover.

If you ever wonder how HISTORY becomes slowly erased, this is partially how.  You get rid of the tangible evidence.  Then you can skewer the FACTS and alter the TRUTH.

This scum is a party to that a crime of history.  Yes, it’s a crime to steal, but there are things that are valuable but have no meaning.  These things have MEANING.  If he’s just an ordinary thief, then why choose to steal THESE things?  Why not something easier?

This is what happens when our government FAILS in it’s duties and responsibilities to the people.  They butt in everywhere and intrude in our lives, but FAIL in the one thing that IS their responsibility.  “To protect us against our enemies, foreign and domestic. ”

Mansal Denton

SAN ANTONIO — A Hill Country Village collector of historical documents told investigators an intern stole books and documents detailing World War II and the Holocaust.


A prosecutor said 20-year-old Mansal Denton planned to leave for Poland on Thursday to sell the items.


“These are original, they’re rare and extremely valuable,” said Adriana Biggs, chief of the White Collar Crime Unit at the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office.


Harry Mazal owns The Mazal Library, a collection of Holocaust-era documents that are available to researchers and academics.


Mazal told authorities Denton was a volunteer at the library. Earlier this month, Mazal noticed thousands of documents were missing. Mazal’s own investigation revealed that many of the documents were being sold online.


“Mr. Mazal believed that (Denton) was in possession of these stolen documents and there was concern that he was going to be leaving the country with the documents with the full intention of selling them,” Biggs said.


Denton had booked a flight for Poland on Thursday, police said. A search of his home turned up some of the documents.


Denton was arrested Wednesday morning. As a condition of his bond, Denton was required to surrender his passport.


If convicted of theft, Denton could face up to 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

    Contrary to the “profile” proposed by Txlady607, Mr. Denton is actually a history buff whose actions resulted in personal financial gain, not the destruction of “tangible evidence” of historical truths.
    Mr. Denton had access to these documents on multiple ocassions over an extended period of time, as his duty was to scan the documents for Internet publication. Had he intended to erase history, he most likely would have shredded them rather than sell them!
    Granted, I cannot condone his actions nor am I attempting to justify them in any way…. I only wish to point out that the tangible evidence associated with Mr.Dentin’s case should not be overlooked / erased in order to skew the truth so that Txlady can promote her own agenda!

  2. txlady706 says:

    I was alluding to a greater theft. Thieves of this types of things are NOT just thieves of THINGS, they are thieves of TRUTH and TIME. It may not be their “thing”, but it really is something to them, because they could use their energies to STEAL things that are just as much money, but they don’t. They Don’t. They CHOOSE these things for reason. I’m not implying a conspiracy. I was talking about the greater crime. That of truth and fact. He wanted the money. Yes. But, your not getting that I was referring to the greater crime to society. Anyway. Hope that clears it up.

  3. Friend says:

    Mansal is from Indian decent. I’m a good friend of him and am shocked at the events that have transpired.

    • txlady706 says:

      eh. There is no accounting for stupidity. He’s young and is too stupid to see that his life will forever be overshadowed by this one act of really bad decision making.
      Too bad. He’s soo young. Lots of life left to pay for this.

  4. anon says:

    Yes his published book was extremely anti-semitic.

  5. greg woodcock says:

    anon you are full of crap the book is about history ,your sort who cry anti -semitic are 99% of the time closet racists and play the race card at every corner because thats all you can come up with ,

  6. A Dutch person says:

    “Mansal looks Middle Eastern but has a VERY dutch name.”

    What does it matter that he has a VERY Dutch name? Are you implying that Dutch people are all criminals or something?

    • txlady706 says:

      A Dutch person :
      Wow. No. Not at all. I noticed that, because it provides incite. Once can infer that this person may be of Middle Eastern CULTURE – maybe his parents came from there- and then moved – like soooo many ME’ers – to the Netherlands. That’s ALL that I was looking at.

      • A Dutch person says:

        Okay, I understand it now. Thanks for the explanation! Furthermore, I could not agree more with the article thingy!

  7. You're racist says:

    What a racist article! Wow! “Looks Middle Eastern”. Looks Mexican,too. Or Spanish. Could be Italian, too. Racist agenda allover the place! The comments are fun, too. His book is about a WW2 battle, the anti-semitic remark is BS out of space. Now to Denton himself, stupid thief, spend well the 20 years in a federal cage!

    • txlady706 says:

      You’re racist:
      I’m a racist? In what way? Just because I say that a person has certain characteristics. Hah!
      Your the racist. In my opinion, he doesn’t look Mexican. Sorry. But he may look Mediterranean. Would I be a racist, in your little racist head, if this was an article that was about someone doing something good? A description is basically just that.
