Nazi Quest for the Holy Grail

In April of 1945, at the end of the Second World War, just days after Hitler’s suicide, a small detachment of American troops discovered a vast cache of mysterious Nazi files hidden in a cave in Southern Germany. Contained in the documents was the key to unlocking one of the Nazis’ most shadowy projects: a hunt to discover a lost civilisation and the ancient knowledge it once possessed. This is the story of the Nazis’ quest to re-discover the lost Aryan race and retrieve their forgotten secrets – including the Holy Grail.

Under the command of Heinrich Himmler, it was a project that launched archaeological expeditions to remote and mysterious sites all across the globe. It begins with a search for the lost island of Atlantis and a quest to find the Holy Grail, and ends with one of the worst crimes of the Holocaust.
