1. Hitler CDs Collection
Alexandra Besymenskaja was looking for badminton rackets in the basement of her father, when he came across a stack of paperwork labelled “Führer Headquarters”. It is the name of Adolf Hitler’s headquarters. Apparently Besymenskaya father was the captain of the Russian military intelligence unit and he had a musical souvenir of the Reich Chancellery.
Josh Ferrin moved to Bountiful, Utah. When he began to watch the purchased house, he quickly found a secret hiding place in the ceiling of the attic. Apparently, this applied to ammunition and bills from the Second World War. The total cash amounted to $ 45,000. Ferrin, to be an example for his children, returned the money to the owners.
3.A long-forgotten work of Vincent Van Gogh
About a hundred years after the tragic death of the artist, in 1991, some Norwegian found on his attic a new painting “Sunset at Montmajour”. At first, it seemed that the image is false, because it was unsigned, but using X-ray technology, technicians were able to confirm the authenticity of the work of Van Gogh.
