The Amber Room


The official claim stated the priceless treasure was destroyed in the aftermath of World War II, but an obscure document in an East German file may tell another story for-The Amber Room. It was a legendary room an ensemble of precious eighteenth-century wall panels that graced a tsarist palace in St. Petersburg. Then it was stolen by Nazi invaders and carried off to a castle in East Prussia. Called by some the "eighth wonder of the world," the treasure was last seen in 1945 during the chaotic scramble of men and borders during the end of World War II. Official statements concluded the Amber Room was destroyed by the ravages of fire, like so much of Europe's art and antiques during the war. The case was closed.
