Post by terminator »

The Netherlands distributes the map leading to an 18 million euro Nazi treasure never found.
Boxes filled with gold coins, precious stones and watches would be buried at the foot of a poplar :

Why doesn't the state retrieve it itself?

But it will not be easy to get hold of this loot. With the plan, the National Archives of the Netherlands have in fact provided a file of 7 centimetres thick which details the various research carried out by the country after the war to try to find it, in vain.

The ammunition boxes were buried in April 1945 at a depth of 70 or 80 centimetres at the foot of a poplar tree on the outskirts of the village of Ommeren. One of the four German soldiers who gave this information on his return to Berlin after the war, a testimony taken by the Dutch authorities who were then in that German city.

The mystery remains around this treasure. Has it ever been unearthed by locals or American soldiers? Did he ever really exist? Everyone can now try their luck to find the famous poplar and boxes filled with precious stones.

Treasure hunters arrived in large numbers in the small village in the Netherlands after learning that a treasure hidden by the Germans during World War II would still be there :
