Hunting the Nazi Gold Train

Historian and broadcaster Dan Snow leads an investigation into one of the history stories of the decade, the hunt for a buried Nazi gold train. In August 2015, two amateur researchers declared they had found a lost Nazi train buried in a railway cutting near Walbrzych, southern Poland. Better still, they believed the train might be loaded with gold, armaments or precious treasure, all left behind by the Nazis at the end of World War II. The claim sparked a global media frenzy. Locals have long believed that at least one train, loaded with looted Nazi gold, left the provincial capital Wroclaw in early 1945. But until now, no one has discovered what happened to it. Dan Snow follows the treasure hunters as they hunt for the gold train, while also carrying out his own investigation into this story - one that leads all the way to Adolf Hitler himself and his secret plans for this remote corner of the Third Reich during the last months of World War II.
