Various items of Nazi memorabilia go under the hammer in Tasmania, despite calls from the Jewish community for the & # 39; perverse & # 39; end the sale.

Armitage Auctions in Launceston will make German war artifacts available for bidding on Wednesday, including medals with swastika's.

The auction house, which came under fire in August for the sale of similar items, has defended its decision to continue with such sales.

& # 39; We can understand that seeing some of these items can be disturbing, and we are sorry for those affected, & # 39; said auctioneer Neil O & # 39; Brien.

& # 39; Although we clearly condemn what happened in the war, along with similar atrocities in history, people are interested in artifacts related to these events. & # 39;

The auction house has sold various war memorabilia for 30 years, O & # 39; Brien said.

& # 39; There are items other than German war memorabilia that we offer for sale that offend some people but are legal to sell, & # 39; he added.

& # 39; It puts us in a difficult position to choose beyond the limits of the law what is ethical to sell and what isn't. & # 39;

But Chairman of the Jewish Anti-Defamation Commission group, Dvir Abramovich, said he was shocked to see Nazi items auctioning again.

& # 39; It is perverted and perverted that hatred and death have a price tag and are for sale, & # 39; he said.

& # 39; We must all remember that these objects encourage extremists and fools … & # 39;

The liberal government has strongly urged everyone to think twice about & # 39; about the sale of Nazi memorabilia, but has excluded the amendment of laws.

& # 39; The display, promotion, and sale of Nazi & Holocaust memorabilia, although not illegal, is often considered offensive, painful and a violation of community and moral standards, & # 39; Attorney General Elise Archer said in a statement.

& # 39; Following an evaluation of other national and international jurisdictions (the government), no regulatory action is currently being considered. & # 39;

Dvir Abramovich, president of the Jewish Anti-Defamation Commission group, said he was shocked when Nazi items were again auctioned. Pictured: an SS ring for sale at the auction
