Nazi train claimed to have been ‘found in Poland’ carrying over $9 billion in gold

Picture(Not actual photo of the claim)Two men have reportedly filed a “finder’s claim” with a district council in Poland for a Nazi military train carrying an estimated 300 tonnes of gold.

The reports come from a law firm in Poland saying they have been contacted by two men who discovered the Nazi train and are seeking a finder’s claim. The law firm says the two men are seeking 10% of everything inside the armored train, the maximum amount under Polish law a treasure finder can keep of any claim. 

Marika Tokarska, an official at the Walbrzych district council told Reuters,
“Lawyers, the army, the police and the fire brigade are dealing with this. The area has never been excavated before and we don’t know what we might find.”

Local Polish news sources said the discovery matched reports in local folklore of a train carrying gold and gems that went missing near the Polish city of Wroclaw in 1945 at the end of World War Two. According to the local legend, the train disappeared while heading into the mountains near the Czech border and belonged to the Wehrmacht, Nazi Germany’s military machine.

It has been estimated that the 500-foot train was hauling over 300 tonnes of gold making it worth a staggering $9 billion. Historians believe the massive amount of gold came into Nazi possession from looting during the war.Picture
