This is coolbert:

It would seem that locating buried treasure as hidden from the time of the Second World War [WW2] is a growth business.

From Harry at Sharkhunters:

"MORE TREASURE TRAINS -  a Russian engineer . . . claims that he KNOWS where a number of lorries loaded with the obligatory gold, silver and jewels taken from the bank of Smolensk is hidden.  According to this story, the Soviet Government took all this treasure for safekeeping from the German Army but to no avail, as this unnamed engineer claims that the German Army overran this convoy and seized the loot - and buried it near the village of Otnosovo to the southwest of another abandoned tunnel.  He claimed that the paper money and the priceless paintings were all burned and just the gold, silver and jewels were buried."

Even the infamous massacre at Ouradour-sur-Glane from WW2 as is the allegation part of a search for lost and hidden  gold. 

"On 10 June 1944, the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in Haute-Vienne in then Nazi occupied France was destroyed, when 642 of its inhabitants, including women and children, were massacred by a Nazi Waffen-SS company."

That entire episode of Oradour disputed, no real finality to the true motivation and behavior of the German ever agreed upon.

"The Story of Oradour-sur-Glane"

"on 9 June 1944, Raoul [French resistance fighter] had stolen 30 boxes of gold bars from a German military vehicle, after all but one of the SS soldiers in the convoy had been killed in an ambush, along with all the Resistance fighters except for him. The one SS soldier, who had managed to escape, reported the ambush to his superior officer. The next day, the SS found the charred bodies, which Raoul had doused with gasoline siphoned from the trucks, and set on fire after burying the 30 boxes of gold by the side of the road"

"the theft of the gold provided the motive for Dickmann to go to Oradour-sur-Glane, which was only four kilometers from where the looted truck was found. According to Raoul, Major Dickmann and his superior officer, Brigadier General Heinz Lammerding, had been systematically stealing Nazi gold for their private "pension fund." At the time of the ambush, they were secretly transporting the gold in a heavily guarded truck which contained important military records. Raoul had discovered the gold by chance after the ambush."

As to incredible stories of gold and hidden or lost gold treasure go read the accounts of Lasseter's Gold!!
