Overview

In the spring of 1945, soldiers of the U.S. Third Army, racing across Germany, stopped at the Kaiseroda Mine at Merkers because they had been informed by local residents that the German Reichsbank had, in the preceding weeks, stored gold and other valuables there. Upon entering the mine, the mine the soldiers found stacks of gold bars, bags of gold coins, millions of dollars worth of foreign currencies, art treasures, and other valuables that had been looted from central banks in German-occupied countries, individual civilians, and victims of Nazi persecution. This collection of recently released documents opens new avenues of research in a wide range of academic disciplines. It will prove invaluable to researchs with an interest in public policy, military history, U.S. history, world history, or the Holocaust.
