SS officer's war journal reveals hidden NAZI TREASURE in Poland

Poland, Opole
March 18, 2019 at 19:00 GMT +00:00 · Published

The wartime diary of a Nazi officer which claims hundreds of trucks filled with gold, looted art and valuables are hidden across Poland has been unveiled on Monday, in the Polish city of Opole.

The diary was written by SS officer Egon Ollenhauer and claims that Adolf Hitler personally ordered 260 trucks filled with art, gold and jewelry to be hidden in 11 different locations throughout Poland.

Included in the treasure is at least 47 paintings, possibly stolen from collections in France, with works from Botticelli, Rubens, Cezanne, Carravagio, Monet, Durer, Raffael and Rembrandt.

The diary has been in the possession of a masonic lodge in the German town of Quedlinburger. They sold the diary to the Silesian Bridge Foundation ten years ago and the Foundation conducted years of research to attest to the truthfulness of it and waited until all the people possibly connected with it died.
