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. ”
Man Arrested In Holocaust Documents Theft
Police: Mansal Denton Planned To Sell Documents From Hill Country Village Library
SAN ANTONIO — A Hill Country Village collector of historical documents told investigators an intern stole books and documents detailing World War II and the Holocaust.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.
