World War II Metal Detecting - German Guns - Eastern Front Battlefield Relic Hunting (HD)
Team WWIIMD visited last december the former battlefields of the eastern front, where heavy fighting took place in 1945. In the search for war relics we discovered some amazing finds that we will share in our new battlefield research video. Our most interesting find was a German MG34/42 machinegun ammunition box that containd 2 German pistols. Czech CZ 27 and a Belgium FN 1922, both war time productions. We also found equipment pieces and other interesting things that were left behind in the woods after the war. Feel free to leave a comment. Greetings from Holland!

NaziI bunker filmed in 1992, I went underground with my still camera and snaped these pictures.
After the fall of the wall in 1989, historians excavated Hitler's bunker, from where he had orchestrated 'total victory or total annihilation', got hitched, and then took his bride's life and then his own. From 1961 to 1989, the bunker had remained untouched in no man's land at the border between east and west. When historians went in, they found of wealth of treasures, like unlocking a time capsule: dinner menus, Nazi paintings, hair brushes, plates, and some rooms still in tact, including the children's room of the family Goebbels, with the wire bunk beds unmoved. Unfortunately, worried the site would become a Nazi shrine, the German authorities destroyed the bunker and built inoffensive and plain buildings over it. Nearby, a large Jewish Memorial is currently under construction. A great historical find was lost, but with sound reasons. The German people struggle hard with their legacy and the world transpires to never let them forget. One wonders why this, and future, generation(s) should be held accountable for the actions of their past generations, especially the longer the time passes. What makes exploring Berlin's bunkers so fascinating is that they were the bunkers of ordinary citizens, the people who held no political ideology and just got caught in the middle; every war has millions of such people. The remaining bunkers are located in suburban areas, surrounded by apartment buildings and offices, and even today, do not look out of place. Indeed, people walk past these buildings every day without giving them a passing glance; they are as much a part of Berlin's cityscape as any building.
