Whilst doing some research back in 2001 I came across a very intriguing story about three soldiers hiding from the Germans in the Tatra Mountains in Slovakia. Whilst hiding out in a cave one of them discovered what could possibly be the oldest man-made structure in the World.
Whilst investigating this story I made contact with an Archeological Geologist based in the US, after reviewing information which I had sent to him, he emailed me with an astounding statement.
He believed the structure was between 300 and 310 million years old! This story was indeed becoming stranger by the hour, I also discovered some otherwise unknown facts.
For instance, it is a matter of record that Heinrich Himmler had sent several scientific expeditions into the Tatra’s looking for a legendary “Moonshaft” and that in the middle to late 70’s after Antonin’s (Tony’s) death, members of his family had been approached by the KGB with a view to obtaining the diary. Neither of these ventures was successful.
In the 60’s a man by the name of Ted Phillips was introduced to Tony and was fascinated by the story, an expedition was put together but was hastily canceled when the Russians invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968.
I have Tony’s Diary and am still in contact with Ted Phillips the organizer of the first expedition.
