The Second World War is a frightening reminder of how darkness and evil can capture the hearts of people. This catastrophic event lasted from 1939 to 1945, and it led to the death of at least 50 million people. The atomic bombs that were dropped in Japan killed a million people while the Holocaust caused the demise of 11 million people.
Likewise, properties and assets were also being seized during World War II. Thus, some people had to think of a way to hide their assets, including their cars. But how could they hide things as big as cars? Read on.
Yes, they are a bunch of cars, but are they significant in any way?
This means that Vincent Michel has uncovered a stunning set of vehicles from such a remarkable time.
It's no wonder they have all rusted to such an extent.
It's quite amazing to see that these vehicles managed to stay hidden there all along.
Of course, placing them there had a purpose.
The owner of these cars probably wanted to keep them safe while the war was still going on in France.
He felt like he went back in time, specifically the time of Second World War.
I would have also been completely stunned if I discovered them myself.
It seemed like the quarry owner wanted to make the place look like an old time capsule filled with cars.
Aside from that, there's nothing remarkable to expect inside the cars.
Thankfully, some of them will remain there as a part of history.
The invasion of France conducted by the Germans happened way back in 1940. After just six weeks, the Nazis managed to capture the country.
Four years might not sound like a long time, but this period already felt like an eternity during wartime.
