This place is hidden among the old trees, and although the land is only a few tens of meters from the road, it is very difficult to find. The well is under the ruins of a large farm during the war. Today, there is only a pile of self-scattered debris and beautiful old basements. In addition, they have only partially survived, and the survivors are systematically destroyed.
This place has been attracting the attention of treasure hunters for many years, especially those who know that a few years ago someone found a large and rich hideout in this area called “crack”. Extremely valuable Faberge eggs, among others. This is probably due to the fact that the area is constantly being intensively infiltrated, and the basement walls of the former dwelling house are constantly being reworked in search of a hidden passage.
A special secret of this place are the wells, four of which are in a small area. Two of them were covered with irretrievable rock fragments, which would be very expensive to open. After picking up the large stones, it would probably be a little difficult to get inside. The second is still open and well preserved. Once hidden under the wall of the existing house here, it has kept the stone walls of the entire length in perfect condition. A few years ago, two German motorcycles were removed, dismantled and in good condition. This is not strange, because although the well is now more than 16 meters deep, it is not only completely dry, but also somehow ventilated …
The “treasure hunters” associated with TALPA and its president M. Boyko found out about the existence of a bottomless well near Przeździedza. Boyko admits that it took him a long time to determine the exact location of the well. The information he obtained was accurate enough, but a search was required on several slopes near Przeździedza and Markzów. However, the president does not seem to regret the time he lost, as conversations with many people made it possible to obtain some important information about what happened here at the end of the war. It is only known from historical data that this area was occupied mainly by German troops, and no major battles took place here. Nevertheless, by the end of the war, there were a number of soldiers involved in a number of military missions.
Gerhard Knabe, a junior officer in the German 52nd Corps who had visited the area several times since 1957, said the German command was located in the mountains east of Markzov. As early as the winter of 1944, he noticed that some staff officers had disappeared almost daily in the woods east of Markov, and on their way back, he almost always noticed that Bob had come from Przeździedza on the other side. After staying in the area for several weeks, he knew that the area had been like a mole for hundreds of years, searching for gold and other minerals. Thus, he easily guessed that the headquarters of the headquarters must have been some old mine.
Knabe recalled that once, while drinking beer, he asked another soldier, a colleague, how the staff members disappeared in Markzov and returned from Przeździedza.
What fascinated him the most was that the officers were returning from the other side of Bob, but they did not cross the bridge there! He recalls that his question often caused panic in Przeździedzada, a fellow officer serving on the other side of the Bóbrun. It was only later that Knabe learned that some of the officers who had disappeared in Markzov, Przeździedza, were visible underground on the slope above the village. They come straight out of the well.
Knabe told him in the 1970s that before going to the front in January 1945, one of the soldiers told him that somewhere in the area, in a large basement, there were not only personnel, but also large ammunition depots. and other combat equipment. Already after the war, at one of his colleagues’ combat meetings, he learned that after going to the front, the station at Markzov began to receive heavily guarded, often single, wagons, the unloading of which was carried out under strict secrecy. Apparently no one knew what was going on in these carriages.
Knabe, who last visited Marczów and Przeździedza in 1988, made no secret of the fact that the forest walks were for one purpose only. They were trying to recreate the topography of the area years ago and gain access to workers’ warehouses. A witness who spoke to Knab in 1988 claims he never found access. However, he noted that Knabe was a waterless well, consistent with the stories of the places where the staff officers went. The German said he would return and one day enter. But no one has met him in Markzov for more than 11 years.
Henryk S. came from Tarnow. In the fall of 1943, he was taken to Germany to work. He began working very happily on a large and rich farm in Markzov. Although his bauer was officially extremely harsh and repeatedly beat his slaves, he did not actually harm anyone. Moreover, in the fall of 1944, when Henryk S. began dating a young German girl from the neighborhood, he only warned them that “someday the end will be bad.” The girl claimed that they were safe because they knew a certain SS officer living in Przeździedza, the richest German boy in the region. His faith was bold.
Henryk S. knew very well what threatened him and his German lover for mutual love. He tried to be careful, but he had no choice, his attitude was controlled by the girl. He was from a village and knew people.
The tragedy occurred in the early spring of 1945. At the end of March, the Germans ordered the evacuation of many houses in Markzov and dozens of families from Przeździedza, forcing residents to leave. at one of the nearby schools. Authorities said they would notify the IDPs in a few days. Henryk S. learned of the deportations from the girl. He also knew from her that the Russians were already near Vroslav. He decided to wait, hoping that the front and salvation were approaching. The girl decided to stay with him, in a giant Bauer barn, hiding behind a granary. He survived the secret night. In the morning, when it became clear that the village was completely empty and no soldiers could be seen through the attic window, the girl decided to go home for more clothes and food. For safety, he had to go only through the well-known fences of his native village. A few minutes after the girl left, the shots were fired. Henryk S, who had a window in the attic, saw a girl lying on the road surrounded by soldiers a few hundred meters away. There was nothing that he could do about it. He could only hope that she would be shot before he said she was not alone.
From the attic window he could see a part of the train station at Henrik S. Markzov and, from time to time, the rails on which new carriages were installed. The witness said he saw trucks escorted by motorcyclists approaching the station. This interested him and at the same time explained the reasons for the evacuation of the village. Although it was a long way from the station, he saw that something was being loaded from the wagons into the trucks that were escorting towards Przeździedza. Henryk S. says he realized that the SS man, a friend of his truck lover, had disappeared somewhere near his father’s farm. The witness also claims that it was then that he linked the man’s stay at home to the unloading and transportation of goods.
Henrik S. died a few years ago in Wroclaw. He claimed that he had never been to the area after the war, but Boyko said he remembered the topography of the area and the location of three of the four wells found so far. The man claimed that trucks were disappearing somewhere under these wells, under the slope where there was a large farm. Henryk S. spoke very reluctantly of this work, and it seems that he never correctly explained the circumstances under which he saved himself and survived until the end of the war. He was said to be very poor, but at the same time built several houses in Tarnovsky. Supposedly to inherit from America.
Where did the captive come from?
The only well available today is 16 meters deep and completely dry. TALPA residents, who have recently penetrated deep into the area, say that the well is actually deeper. It was covered with rock debris to an unknown depth, and its removal is possible only after the use of a mechanical winch. However, it requires significant investment. Attempts to move the stones to the bottom of the well in a very limited space prove that the layer of rock fragments is up to several meters. And no one knows what’s under it. It is only known that the bicycles that were once taken out of here were hidden under the rocks under it. And they are in good condition, because, as M. Boyko claims, there is a slight … leak at the bottom of the well. The perfectly protected stone lining makes it impossible to wind behind these stones. And a burning match confirms that it was pulled under him.
To check where it is blowing, you need heavy equipment that will allow you to reach the real bottom of the well. To do this, many tons of stone must be removed. How much, no one knows. Or maybe someone knows, because he suffered to hide under the rocks, probably in the last days of the war, with dozens of old, completely rusty German weapons. A hiding place that guarantees that everyone who enters the well must find these debris. Is it just a consolation for seekers? Maybe a hint?
There are several serious theories about the existence of large underground mines near this well – old mines adapted to new tasks during the war. According to those who descended into the dry well, this is never a place where water is drawn, but an underground element. They claim that at such a great depth, at the bottom of a large, slightly damp slope, it is almost impossible for no water to accumulate in the natural bottom! And there are only two explanations for not being there. Either it is a place with beautiful geological features, or the bottom of this well is much lower than the level of the rocks. And downhill. The layout of the area is perfect for some underground ventilation chimneys. That’s why the confidence he “blows” at the bottom is so important.
Such is not the “end of the world.”
Marczów and Przeździedza are also outside the main routes today. This is quite a problem for the residents of those villages, where it is difficult to find work and far away. But at the end of the war, it had an advantage, almost “at the end of the world.” It guaranteed the safety of hiding various items. So someone decided to hide a very valuable butterfly collection in a peasant house without any protection. One of the guests who visited the Schaffgotsch Palace in Cieplice for many years. In the same village, in 1947, KBW found a collection of paintings found while searching for members of the German wolf wolf. Then they said that some of them came from Wawel. There are reports of mysterious German visits to the village and equally mysterious excavations in the surrounding forests after such visits.
This land still hides many secrets. Somewhere there is a “crack”, somewhere the vehicles seen by Henrik S. have disappeared. Some scouts even say that the dry well is the ventilation chimney of this “crack” and one of the buried wells is the entrance, which is supposed to be very rich, underground …
