    All About The Nazi Gold Train

    According to historical stories, there was a train that was loaded with gold for departure in the last month of World War II. As per the plan, the train was meant to depart from Breslau and arrive at Freiburg station which was situated in Schlesien. However, the train never arrived at the next station in Waldenburg in Schlesien.

    Speculation arose that the train got de-routed and somehow entered the abandoned coal mine. This mine was a project by the Nazis titled ‘Project Riese’ which was the code name for a subterranean construction project of Nazi Germany in 1943.
