Polish officials say they detained two Canadian men after visitors to the former Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp reported seeing them pick up loose nails from a railway track at the memorial. Prosecutor Mariusz Slomka said the 30-year-old suspects, both teachers, were released after being questioned
The nails were recovered from their backpacks, and the men were allowed to leave Poland. Authorities will decide whether to bring charges.
Local police Chief Robert Chowaniec said Monday they could face up to 10 years in prison if the nails prove to be historic artifacts.more
