, 1982

Objects with symbols from the Nazi era may be officially prohibited but not in a museum. After all, history cannot be undone, even if that is something we would like to do sometimes. While cleaning out the estate of her deceased husband, a woman from Frankfurt came across a "German Red Cross Cutter" from the time of the Third Reich. As a member of the Red Cross, he had to wear the uniform and part of it was this "cutter" and along with the Red Cross symbol, the eagle with a swastika. Where to with this find? Of course, the woman from Frankfurt thought about donating it to a museum. On the other hand, the fact that she owned illegal NS items could become public. That would mean "trouble" with the People's Police. While in doubt whether she should quietly dispose of her find or  carefully inquire at the museum, she decided for the latter. Even the promise of keeping things anonymous could not alleviate her worries. Only after numerous visits, a base of trust was established so that the "cutter" could be passed on. She even received a small reward for it.
