This story would make a great movie. During theSecond World War, the Schlattner family, a German family living in the heart of modern-day Czech Republic, was evicted from their home. Back then this was hardly an uncommon occurence, but in this case, there was a snag.
A secret that's been stashed away for 70 years
In a hurry, the father decided to gather several objects and hide them, with plans of coming back for them someday. But alas, that day never came; he never got the chance to go back for his belongings. However, he did tell his son about his hidden "treasure". And for 70 years, his son kept it a secret.
Not money or jewellery, but still an invaluable treasure
It was only at the age of 83 that Mr Schlattner's son finally returned to the Czech Republic and to his childhood home. As if it was yesterday, he remembered an opening system with a string that he had to pull to reveal the treasure.
Books, old toys, drawing materials... these items, which are priceless to the Schlattner family, are now on display in the museum of the city of Ústí nad Labem, as a testament to the history of both this family and the World.
