Treasure hunters digging for 10 tonnes of Nazi gold in palace grounds given permission to raise ‘£200m loot-filled tank’


TREASURE hunters digging for 10 tonnes of Nazi gold have been granted permission to raise what they believe is a loot-filled tank.

The £200million stash is said to be buried 10ft below the surface at an 18th-century palace close to Wroclaw in southern Poland – that Hitler’s henchmen used as a secret SS brothel.

The big dig, which began in May 2021, is being led by a group called the Silesian Bridge Foundation in the village of Minkowskie.

The gold diggers unearthed a 5ft metal cannister using ground-scanning radars after pinpointing the location with the help of an old SS diary.

Now two months on from their thrilling discovery, the team have been given the green light to bring the tank to the surface.

They told history buffs to “save the date” of September 1 after the excavator’s latest permit was granted.

Sharing an update on the buried treasure, Roman Furmaniak, from the Silesian Bridge Foundation said: “We are excited to share with you the receiving of our latest permit required for the final excavation of the deposits.

“Save the date – September 1st! Big Date for a Big Day!

“Things are moving, we would love to make it a sprint, as much as we can, but we do understand your impatience and we are doing our best with what we have!”

They had to seek permission from army sappers amid fears the treasure could have been booby-trapped by SS soldiers, who are said to have buried the gold sometime after invading Poland in 1939.

The team now hope to uncover a hoard of stolen swag that was swiped towards the end of World War Two under the instruction of SS boss Heinrich Himmler, to fund the creation of a Fourth Reich.

It is thought to be made up of jewellery and possessions treasured by Germany’s elite who lived in the area.

They handed their valuables over to the Nazis in the hopes of avoiding them being snatched by Russia’s advancing Red Army.

The elusive “Gold of Breslau”, which disappeared from police headquarters in the Polish city of Wroclaw, is also believed to be amongst the buried booty.

The Minkowskie palace is the first location that the foundation has searched.  

Treasure hunters pieced together the Nazi loot’s location using secret documents, an SS officer’s diary and a map from the descendants of Waffen SS officers belonging to a secretive lodge that dates back over 1,000 years.

According to the diary, an astonishing quantity of Nazi gold, art, valuables and religious artefacts were stashed away in safe hiding places across Lower Silesia.
