purse as well as some boot's.
These were artifacts that were so similar to some of the Nazi actions against people in the concentration camp's and showed the very darkest and most
evil depth to which the human spirit can descend.
Still for all the evil that mankind can do there are still the good among us (or at least I hope so).
