Two men claim to know the whereabouts of the legendary precious haul, which is rumoured to have disappeared 70 years ago.
The claimants want 10 percent of the value of the find in return for revealing the location of the supposedly 490 foot-long armored train, reports the Inquistr.
As outlined in their claim to Wałbrzych authorities, “the train contains valuable objects, costly industrial materials and precious metal ores.”
Marika Tokarska of the District Office in Wałbrzych has said that although there are “various uncertainties regarding the matter… there are many details that give credence to the fact that the train has been discovered.”
Rumours have endured over the decades that the Nazis built secret tunnels in the mountains of Lower Silesia.
There are several other locations containing treasure though. Daily Mail detailed some of those locations.
“In the hills surrounding the eerie triangular-shaped castle of Wewelsburg near Paderborn the hunt is centered on S.S. jewellery worth an estimated £50million. S.S. overlord Heinrich Himmler used the castle as a Black Camelot for his knights-of-the-dark-side. As the Reich crumbled he abandoned Wewelsburg. Some 9,280 special S.S silver rings struck for his men, and returned on his orders to him after death, were stashed in a secret cave in the nearby hills. Further east, in what was the former German Democrat Republic, the Jonas Valley is the most dangerous of the hunting grounds and said to have it all: conspiracy theorists merely have to fill in their own fantasy. Adolf Hitler’s atom bomb, the Amber Room stolen from a Czarist palace in the campaign against Russia, numerous lost art masterpieces and tonnes of Reichsbank gold – all are rumoured to reside in the miles of underground tunnels and bunkers carved out of the rock by slave labourers. The centre of the Jonas Valley is at Ohrdruf and was the site of the S-III Fuhrer headquarters. It was intended to be the Alamo of the Third Reich leadership.”
An historian in Wroclaw has kept herself knowledgeable about the “ghost train” legend. Joanna Lamparska spoke with Radio Wroclaw about the potential discovery of the Nazi train.
“In the region we actually [have] two gold train stories. One is supposed to be under a mountain and the other somewhere around Walbrzych, but no one has ever seen documentary evidence confirming the existence of such trains.”
During the radio interview, she also revealed that others have searched for the train over the last 70 years, but the train has never been found. Has that now changed? Lamparska said that, “The legend has captured imaginations.”
Wałbrzych, which was part of Germany prior to World War II and named Waldenburg, was taken by the Red Army on 8 May 1945.
Poland’s borders were shifted west following the war, and the city became Polish. Ethnic Germans were forced to migrate west to within Germany’s new borders.
As Germans fled the advancing Red Army at the end of the war, innumerable valuables were evacuated. Thousands of these, including artworks such as Raphael’s ‘Portrait of a Young Man’, which was looted from Poland’s Czartoryski Museum, have not been traced until this day.
What do you think about Nazi Gold Train? Do you think it’s possible it’s still full of gold after all these years?
