Ancient torture devices for sale
Published on May 12th, 2009 | by Admin1
A collection of 252 torture devices used in the 16th and 17th centuries will be sold in New York City with a portion of proceeds going to charities campaigning against torture.
‘It’s almost what’s your pleasure, what part of the body would you like to hurt, which is a terrible thing to say,’ Mr Ettinger said of the devices. ‘As brutal as these things are, it’s history and if these items get dispersed that would be gone.’
