Photo: depositphotos.com the Polish-German historical fund published the diary of the officer of CC which described places where Nazis hid treasures during retreat from Poland. Manuscripts are recognized as original. As the British Daily Mail reports, the document got into hands of Silezsky Bridge fund from the mysterious organization under the name "Kvedlinburgsky Christian Box" which history begins in the 10th century. Her representatives agreed to the publication just now as all people connected with the described events already died. Authorship of the manuscript belongs to the officer of the Third Reich Egon Ollenkhauer. Allegedly he was at the head of all operation on concealment of treasures of the Third Reich. In the diary of the officer it is told that during approach of the Red Army Hitler personally ordered to hide 260 trucks filled with jewelry and objects of art in 11 places in the territory of Poland that the Soviet troops could not find them. So, about 28 tons of gold of Reykhsbank, and other treasure, perhaps are allegedly stored in one of hiding places, stores Botticelli, Michelangelo and Raphael's well-known cloths stolen from France. Also Nazis could hide and the religious objects collected by the Anenerbe organization of Heinrich Himmler studying occult subjects. However, places of caches are described quite vaguely, for example "a pond bottom" or "the confidential room between walls of one of the Polish palaces".

It is necessary to check! Because they stole from the whole Europe very much everything, hid in different places, including in different mines, in lakes, etc. The Dresden gallery was found accidentally, practically in water floated. The captain who was engaged in it was by profession an art critic. And so, I think, the known pictures of Raphael would die too". It is the known case in the history. The marshal of the Soviet Union Ivan Konev wrote in the memoirs that treasures of the Dresden gallery were found in adits of stone quarries beyond Elba. The well-known "Sistine Madonna" became one of finds. By the way, after war the picture was taken out to the USSR and was stored in store rooms of the Pushkin museum. Only in 1955 together with all Dresden meeting it was returned to the authorities of the GDR. If treasures are really found, then who will get treasures? The situation is commented by the scientist-lawyer Vladimir Entin: Vladimir Entin the scientist-lawyer "When is a treasure of times of World War II, right there is a ball of problems. If in this treasure there are works of art, then they have a family tree with instructions of the previous owners. Respectively, the previous owners have the right to demand return of property, just return of property is the restitution. There are international acts concerning
