A tiny Texas town. $350 million worth of medieval treasure. The discovery is just the beginning.
At the end of World War II, hundreds of thousands of precious cultural treasures remained missing. In 1986, German museum officials hired a graduate student to search the National Archives for clues to their missing works. One of the most valuable was the Quedlinburg Treasure.
Willi Korte, a career treasure hunter, has spent the past several decades of his life looking for these missing valuables and now he’s telling his story in his own words. Through numerous interviews, extensive archival footage and newsreels from the last 25 years, Cassie Hay meticulously traces the life and location of the Quedlinburg Treasure from the days before WWII to the modern day.
