World War II ended in September of 1945, bringing several years of combat, destruction, and loss to an end. But even 70 years after its end, people are still uncovering remnants of this terrible time in history.
Recently, a discovery was made in the rural Nevsky Pyatachok region of Russia that sheds new light on the war. During an archaeological dig, historians found a lock box trapped in mud. When they finally cracked it open, they realized that what hid inside should have probably remained lost.
The box was covered in mud and was very heavy.
Inside was a map of someone’s life…from 70 years ago.
They discovered a German Reichsmark, as well as a card identifying a member of the Nazi party.
Old Lockbox Buried In the Mud
It seemed like the box had been packed in a hurry.
These cigars look like they could be brand new.
Whoever left this box really liked his cigars.
And booze. Check out this Jamaican rum!
Here is the German soldier’s cap. It’s safe to say he’s no longer with us.
There’s some dispute as to whether these items are genuine or not, but if they are, they’re worth a good bit of money. You just have to wonder why these were buried in the first place…
