Here’s a list of five spectacular Nazi treasures that have never been found to this day.
The Nazi’s where hateful people who caused a lot of unnecessary deaths and destruction. They raided many museums of rare items and took families valuable possessions. Through out the course of the war much of the treasures that had been looted, where either hidden for Hitler or selfish soldiers hid it with hopes of returning after the war to claim it.
I came up with a list of five of what I thought to be the biggest Nazi treasures that have never been located and still out there waiting to be found.
Dachau Nazi War Treasure
The Dachau Treasure was valuable items like gold and jewels that were stolen from about 35,000+ Jewish prisoners when they were thrown into Dachau Concentration Camps in 1933 to 1945. Dachau didn’t only house Jewish prisoners but also Nazi war criminals one of which was a former SS solider who had been part of the Nazi unit that stole these goods from the prisoners.
Before the former SS solider was put to death he told a Austrian doctor Wilhem Grob of the existence of an impressive treasure in which he and his fellow soldiers stole and where planning on hiding before he got caught. Turns out shortly after the form SS officer was imprisoned, the other men of the unit packed the treasure into 4 separate boxes which they hid in a lake somewhere in the Austrian Alps.
In 1952, Edward Greger an Army intelligence officer stationed in Austrian had befriended the doctor and was told of the story and treasure. The both went in search of the treasure but years of erosion had changed the landscape making it impossible. In 1992, Edward had returned once again to the site were the treasure was supposed to be hid, but again found nothing.
It is believed that to this day the treasure still lies in its original hiding spot in a lake in the Swiss Alps waiting to be found.
Hitler’s Lost Gold in Deutschneudorf, Germany
This site in Germany is suspected of holding a hidden cache of 2 tons worth of gold and valuable artwork which was hidden in an old ore mine 30 feet below ground towards the end of the war. Evidence has been found on this site that verifies the Nazi’s had indeed been there at some point in time.
Treasure hunter Christian Hanischs father was a navigator in the Nazi air force and is said to be one of the soldiers that helped hide the gold and valuable artworks. Before his death he left his son the coordinates to the cave which is 30 feet underground in an old ore mine.
