Experts have discovered a long-lost chest full of silver in a 600-year-old castle that was used by the Nazis in World War II, according to a media report.

The items were discovered in the Nowy Sącz Royal Castle, which dates back to the 14th century, The First News reported. The news outlet notes that the castle was occupied in June 1941 by the Germany army, which turned it into a barracks and ammunition depot, while simultaneously creating a ghetto in the town for 20,000 Polish Jews.

Read a fascinating article about Civil War treasure hunters.
They were scouring old documents trying to find property
plans that showed building locations. They wanted to know
where the outhouse had been located. Valuables were sometimes dumped
down outhouse pits to avoid looting by foraging Union soldiers.
