However, the places had been the subject of in-depth searches. The famous “Wolf’s Den”, the name of Adolf Hitler’s headquarters, still has secrets to reveal. In particular the identity of the five people whose bodies were recently discovered by treasure hunters.

According to forensic expertise, reports the newspaper Der Spiegel, these are the remains of three adults, a teenager and a toddler. The precise date of their death is not yet known. The possibility that these corpses were buried after the war has not been ruled out to this day.

“We were more than shocked,” Oktavian Bartoszewski, one of the discoverers of these remains, told the German newspaper Merkur. The latter, owner and editor-in-chief of the magazine Relikte der Geschischte (relics of History), intended for enthusiasts of vestiges, participated in a campaign with a Polish team, the Latebra Foundation. The latter published a first video on YouTube at the end of April 2024 in which these excavations and their recent results are reported, then a new, more detailed video on May 2 (video in Polish)

Oktavian Bartoszewski, for his part, also published his own reports – in German –  on his magazine’s YouTube channel.

At the end of the day, on February 24, the team lifted the floorboards in the house which had been attributed to Hermann Göring, a Nazi official very close to the dictator. They discover skulls there.

“Immediately after making this discovery, we called the police and those responsible for the historic site,” he said in his video. Subsequently, other bones were discovered by the Polish police forensic teams. Mysterious fact: the skeletons would be devoid of feet and hands, reports the German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau. The strange elements don’t stop there…

Signs in the shape of lightning – an occultist practice very popular among members of the SS – were also found near the bodies, indicates the German press.

The Wolf’s Lair (Wolfsschanze in German) is located in former East Prussia, to the east of present-day Poland. This complex was made up of around thirty buildings and where an attempted attack against the leader of the Reich took place. Göring, who was one of the leaders of the NSDAP (the National Socialist party), then head of the air force, before being named Reich Marshal, a title that he was the only one in the Nazi regime to bear. Hitler had also designated him as successor. He was sentenced to death at the Nuremberg Trials and committed suicide shortly before his scheduled execution time.
