The uniforms are coveted and valuable trophies in collectors circles, which could be a possible motive for breaking in. Of the many pieces stolen, the SS uniform is estimated to be worth 200,000 Danish kroner (about $31,400), according to Monopol.

Museum manager Hauke Grella is saddened by the break-ins and asks for help in solving the crime. He will consult with experts promptly about an additional security of the museum and the exhibition items.The museum remains open.
