The guy is offering 25,000 euros?  I’m thinking that whoever manages to decode the thing will be looking for the treasure themselves.

The offer is actually for the book- and movie-rights to the story of the treasure recovery. The guy in question is a journalist/bookwriter. And he already did look himself in teh area the code would indicate. But apparently, it is not really a matter of “go there and pick it up”.

No, a journalist/bookwriter would never make a nazi-treasure-hunting story up in a million years… oh oh

Just imagine if some Jewish person cracks the code and uses the money to establish a Holocaust Memorial Museum. :D
