Treasure Hunters Claim To Have Found A Nazi Gold Train

The two men are demanding a 10% fee to reveal the fortune’s location

Two men, a Pole and a German, are claiming to have discovered a legendary Nazi train stuffed with gold, diamonds and other gems in Poland.

As fortune hunters make their way to the city in south-west Poland, authorities are working to determine the authenticity of the claims.

A local legend says that the train went missing in 1945 as the Red Army was closing in on Nazi forces at the end of World War II.

It’s thought the train could in one of the many railway tunnels around the city of Walbrzych that were built during the conflict and sealed once the war ended.

While the Walbrzych District Council appears to be taking the allegations seriously, historians warn it may all be a hoax.
