A hobby historian from eastern Germany says he has found Hitler’s nuclear bombs in an underground bunker. But did such a bomb even exist?

Using a ground penetrating radar, 70-year-old Peter Lohr, says he discovered huge caverns in the ground under the Jonastal in Thuringia.
Furthermore, using a 3-D imaging technology he found five large metal objects in the cave, at least two of which he believes are atomic bombs.
The shape of the metal objects corresponds to the shape of a nuclear weapon, said Lohr, who is a trained mechanical engineer.
“The metal's been lying there for 71 years. At some point it will decay and then we will have a second Chernobyl on our hands” he warned tabloid Bild.
The authorities don’t seem to be taking his concerns as seriously though.
“They just told me that I’m not allowed to continue my research anymore.”
This is of course not the first time that an a hobby researcher has made a fantastical claim about a hidden underground lair full of Nazi secrets.
Just last year, two amateur historians had international media on tenterhooks after claiming they had found a train in a hidden tunnel in Poland full of Nazi gold and other treasures.
After extensive searches of the site, qualified researchers said they could find no evidence the train existed.
