This series is about the greatest theft in history and one of the biggest treasure hunts in the world today.

Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazis looted millions of cultural objects and hundreds of tons of gold bullion. They stole wedding rings and gold teeth fillings, uncut diamonds and crown jewels; they cleaned out museums, libraries, churches, synagogues, businesses, factories and family homes.

Some of what was stolen remains missing today, including an estimated 100,000+ artworks with pieces by Degas, Van Gogh and Raphael; as well as caches of gold, diamonds, jewellery and other cultural treasures worth tens, if not hundreds, of millions. The recovery effort began in the final days of the Second World War. It continues today.

Hunting Nazi Treasure puts the emphasis on contemporary investigation, detective work and authentic searching. Each episode follows a team of investigators on the trail of missing loot.  

Episode 2: The Mystery of Rommel's Gold

In 1943, the Nazis looted $50 million in gold from the Jewish community in Djerba, Tunisia. The team tracks the loot to a dive site off Corsica, a pawnshop in Germany to the family of an escaped Nazi in South America.

Episode 1: Goering's Greed

The second most powerful man in Nazi Germany stole billions worth of art and treasure. The team is on the trail of sunken gold and missing masterpieces looted from Holland.
