History 09/03/20 What treasures Hitler was looking for in the USSR

Hitler, as we know, was “turned” in different pseudoscientific and mystical theories, and thus possessed the old Germanic mythology. Be it was and some of his colleagues, like the leader of the SS Himmler. Sometimes they do even determined a different solution in military strategy.

“Ahnenerbe” in search of secret

To study the occult secrets of the SS was created a special Department “Ahnenerbe”. In England, in Westminster Abbey, agents “Ahnenerbe” was trying to steal the stone of Scone, which was the coronation of the Anglo-Saxon kings, and was looking for the sword of king Arthur. In Spain they searched for traces of the Holy Grail and Ark of the Covenant.

In the Vienna Museum, the Hofburg spear was kept, with which the Roman centurion stabbed Christ crucified. It was believed that the owner of the spear will be invincible. After the Anschluss of Austria, the spear was kept in the headquarters of the “Ahnenerbe” in the castle of Wewelsburg. A few days before the suicide of Hitler, the castle was captured by American troops.

In Tibet, a special expedition sent by the Nazis, searching for Shambala – the land of the ancient wise race. However, Hitler, after his emissary Schaeffer, being in contact with Tibetan lamas, and didn’t find Shambhala, suspected that the secret entrance to the country can be located somewhere in the Caucasus.

Search of Shambhala on Elbrus

In March, 1942, Hitler announced to the stunned generals of the Wehrmacht that the purpose of the big summer offensive in the East, after the defeat at Moscow, will be the capture of the Caucasus. The rational motive for this decision was put forward the necessity of mastering the oil fields, without which Germany allegedly could not wage war. The military knew that Germany produces more and more synthetic fuels, and oil was no longer a critical resource. They did not understand how it is possible to go away from vital centers FRUnica, because it is impossible to impose a General battle and win. But “the führer has ordered – we execute”.

In August 1942, the Wehrmacht came to the foot of the Great Caucasus. Elite Alpine division of the Wehrmacht “Edelweiss” was aimed at seizing the mountain passes. August 15 at the hands of the Germans was Klukhori pass, leading from the North Caucasus to the black sea coast of Abkhazia. But suddenly, instead of down in the Caucasus, the division receives a different task – set Nazi flags on the peaks of mount Elbrus.

Elbrus – the highest mountain of the Caucasus. In ancient Iranian languages the word means “shining mountain”. The so-called and highest mountain range of Iran. In the imagination of the Nazi mystics, this mountain was merged with the legendary mountains as the “Avesta” and the “Vedas”, the sacred books of the ancient Aryans – protected entrance to their ancestral home. According to one version, this input could be a hidden cave somewhere in the Caucasus mountains.

21 August, the special command division “Edelweiss” set the flags of the Third Reich on Elbrus. As if the Germans tried someone zoom banners with swastikas on their arrival.

At the foot of mount Elbrus, the Germans have equipped the airfield from which flew reconnaissance aircraft. One day, there sat the plane disembarked a group of men in strange for these parts of the garments, with Oriental features. It is known that the Nazis took to a lot of Tibetan monks that were supposed to help them in their mystical quest. What happened to those who delivered Elbrus, is unknown.

There in November 1942 and was buried by a German officer Karl singer. The same name was a member of the mystical society “Tule”, is engaged in search of the Aryan and Germanic occult antiquities. One and the same singer or two different entities – has not yet been set.

and the identity of the commander of the division “Edelweiss” major-General Hubert Lanz is quite mysterious. Long before the war, in 1936, he visited the Caucasus. General excellent talkRIL in Russian, carefully studied the area, making friends with the mountaineers, who then, during the war, he will be a great fit. At that time the Nazis still had not planned any military operations in the Caucasus and is unlikely to imagine that will lead them there… is it Only with the military-prospecting purposes Lantz traveled to the Caucasus?

Hyperborea and the grave of Siegfried

the Caucasus was not the only place where the Nazis hoped to find something hidden. In the early 1920s in the Soviet Union, it was announced about the discovery on the Kola Peninsula the remnants of the ancient civilization of the Hyperboreans. Information about this discovery must have been tracked by interested parties. Hitler throughout the war sought to seize Murmansk and planned after the war to include the Kola Peninsula directly in the Third Reich.

According to the views of supporters of the Nazi racial theory, ancient Germans came from the East. The events of the “Nibelungenlied”, where Germans confront the Huns, could occur on the territory of Russia. For vague data, in November 1941, Hitler simply because sent Panzer group Guderian in the distant and hopeless bypass Moscow from the North-East, hoping to find somewhere near Ryazan the grave of the legendary Germanic hero Siegfried.

the Gothic Crown Queen

The undoubted search of artifacts were taken by the Nazis in the Crimea. In 1925 in the village of Marfovka in the Kerch Peninsula was found a treasure with lots of gold jewelry Gothic time. The most valuable of them was a tiara that could wear the legendary Queen ready Fidea. The discovery was a worldwide sensation. The American millionaire Armand hammer, who began first to trade with the Bolsheviks, wanted to buy a treasure for fabulous money, but he refused.

in the Autumn of 1941, when the Germans invaded the Crimea, the treasures stored in the Kerch historical-archaeological Museum was prepared for evacuation. Here and started their adventure that has not ended until now.

According to one version, the ship on which pensosilesi values, was sunk by German aircraft, and treasures still lie somewhere at the bottom of the Kerch Strait. However, this is inconsistent evidence that a suitcase Packed with objects from the hoard were submitted several times in the North Caucasus in the evacuation from one Keeper to another, until he was commissioned commander of a guerrilla unit. There are further traces are lost. When in the autumn of 1943 Krasnodar region was liberated from the Germans, a case of valuables proved empty. So, anyway, reported to the NKVD.

Earlier, in August 1942, breaking the Caucasus, the Germans launched hot on the heels of a search of the evacuated treasure. Special Sonderkommando, led by archaeologist Carl Kersten, well-known specialist in the Nazi seizure of cultural property in occupied countries, was quickly figured out where the suitcase with a treasure trove of Fidei was the last time. She attacked his footprints in Krasnodar, Armavir, the village of Calm. But to detect it, apparently, and failed.

the Hoard of Fidei gone as unnoticed as the Amber room.
