Poland: search for Nazi gold train


A team of treasure hunters searching for a Nazi “gold train” have started excavations on the sight where the legendary train supposedly vanished in southwest Poland near the Czech border 1945.

Six independent companies using radar technology have detected the evidence of a tunnel on the site.

“ I have to admit the results of the ground-penetrating radar examinations are very promising. There is no coincidence every radar showed anomalies indicating the existence of a tunnel” says Andrzej Galik , a member of the search team.”

The search continues despite scientists saying late last year that there is “no evidence” that the train exists. Treasure hunters have been searching for the train for decades.

The world might be about to find out whether a train full of Nazi gold is really hidden in Poland https://t.co/4UzPuzHAI6
