Nazi Enigma cipher machines, dozens of bottles of French wine and about 200 condoms, toothpaste, coffee and other items were found in the submarine U-534 raised from the bottom.
In the English city of Liverpool, an exhibition entitled “Secrets of the Last submarine” at the Western Approaches Museum. It will display World War II items from the Nazi submarine U-534: French wines, condoms, coffee, etc. This is reported by the British edition of The Guardian.
According to journalists, the exhibition will open next week. There you will see two Nazi Enigma cipher machines, dozens of bottles of French wine and about 200 condoms, as well as toothpaste that still tastes minty and coffee that has retained its aroma.
A treasure trove of unusually well-preserved Nazi artifacts will be put on public display for the first time. The items were recovered from a sunken submarine in the 1990s after nearly 50 years at the bottom of the ocean.
When translated and analyzed, they may contain the answer to the question why this particular submarine did not surrender at the end of the war. This is a mystery that has puzzled historians for a long time.
The exhibits will also be placed on the Big Heritage platform, which focuses on education and heritage, so that hundreds of interested people can help translate German documents and share their knowledge.
Surviving copies of confidential Nazi documents are rare, so the team hopes that the documents found on the submarine will help to understand what happened at the end of the Nazi regime.
What is known about the submarine?
U-534 is the last submarine that left Germany in 1945. Historians suspect that it may have been high-ranking Nazi officials who were planning to flee to another part of the world. One was sunk by two RAF Liberators in May 1945, 20 km off the Danish island of Anholt.
“An Argentine radio operator was on board and had the fuel and range to go to Argentina. They had was a tropical form, but they were in the North Sea, so where were they going?” said Big Heritage director Dean Paton.
The submarine was raised from the bottom in 1993, and was on display until 2020 public display at Birkenhead. Now the submarine belongs to Big Heritage and is in the process of reconstruction.
