In 1939, German troops were marching towards Paris. When a 23-year-old heard about this, she locked up her apartment and left town, leaving all of her belongings inside. After World War II, she continued to pay rent on her apartment but never returned. She passed away in 2010 at the age of 91.
When her family heard about her Paris apartment, they found that it was still standing and her door was still locked. They hired an auctioneer to sell some of the valuables on site. When he opened the door, he was stunned. This apartment had become a time capsule. Everything was exactly where it was left 70 years ago.
Among all of these artifacts were many pieces of art. Most of these works were now worth millions, and some of them are considered priceless! One painting of her grandmother, a well known figure of the Belle Epoque era, sold for 3.4 million dollars!
This apartment is a true time capsule of life before the Second World War. It is amazing that it stood untouched for so long!
