      Many Nazis ended up in South America after the end of WWII. Wouldn't it be strange if this piece of lab glassware had followed the most notorious missing Nazi Josef Mengele?

      I guess the info on the beaker itself would have to be traced back to where it was used in Germany, and where in south America Mengele was thought to be living. found this quite by accident while looking thru a curio cabinet in a small antique store. the shape caught my eye, but you can imagine my shock when I held it up to the light!!!
