While playing in a forest near Rottalmuenster, some youngsters dug up a rusty iron strongbox filled to the brim with wedding bands, diamond rings, gold watches and other valuables. Since all engravings are in Hungarian, it is believed that a concentration camp guard who had been in charge of Hungarian Jews hid his booty in this isolated spot.
