2.16 Under the Radar: Rembrandt, van Dyck and Priam’s/Troy’s Treasure

Priam’s/Troy’s Treasure Priam Troy

Some believe that what happened to Priam’s/Troy’s treasure after WWII is what happened to the Amber Room – the Red Army found it, it was stored in a Russian museum and once Troy’s treasure surfaced through this stupid party photos, they feared the same could happen with the Amber Room and therefore officially started to reconstruct (secretly using the old material). Fact is: Schliemann’s find was never in a German u-boat, it’s in a museum.
