A Nazi time capsule that was buried in 1934, was recovered beneath concrete in the town of Zlocieniec, a town had been part of Germany during the Second World War. The capsule had been buried during the construction of the Ordensburg Krossinsee building, which had been used to train members of the Nazi party. Although knowing of the capsule’s existence, the Polish researchers only now were able to penetrate the thick concrete, German mines and groundwater to get the capsule.
The capsule’s contents were perfectly preserved. The researchers discovered photographs, including images of Adolf Hitler, archival German newspapers, two copies of the dictator’s book, Mein Kampf, coins held inside an envelope, promotional information about the town of Falkenburg, the German name for Zlocieniec, and an appeal to the future residents.
The items will be translated and preserved before being made available to the National Museum in Szczecin.
