Our team has decades of experience in collecting, buying, and selling of historic artifacts with a specialty in World War II and Holocaust related material. Although our main field of expertise falls within these categories, we are proud to offer a wide range of other historical memorabilia in our auctions.
The President of Valkyrie Historical Auctions is historian Norbert Podlesny, author of the trilogy A Glimpse of Evil, a comprehensive study of the Holocaust and the persecution of Jews in World War II. Podlesny's grandfather was a prisoner in the KL Majdanek concentration camp and he was drawn to this historical topic at a very young age. Today he is a world renowned expert on Holocaust and Second World War related artifacts.
Adam Lewis is Valkyrie Historical's co-founder and was also drawn to World War II history as a child. Both of his grandfathers served in the United States Navy during the war, one on a destroyer in the Pacific and the other as a Navy pilot. Growing up, Adam inherited many of his grandfather's war souvenirs and his collection and knowledge has grown extensively over the last 30 years. His main interest and expertise are in Third Reich documents and historical autographs.
Our team has built relationships and regularly consult with top historians and experts across the globe.
