When a group of Norwegian students moved into their new shared home, their landlord mentioned a “secret room” somewhere on the property. So, naturally, they went exploring.
Documenting their adventure on Reddit, the students set out to find the room as the landlord said she had no idea where it was, just that it was “somewhere”.
So they hunted high and low and, eventually, came upon a tiny concealed doorway in the attic.
It opened out into a wood-paneled room, which they realized was a WWII hideout that had been untouched for over 70 years.
The room was tiny, with maps of the UK and France covering the walls, and Redditors pointed out that despite the rooms size, “it was probably used by a whole family” in hiding.
A sign inside the room, written in Norwegian, reads: “If you have a bad stomach, you do not have access,” which may have been a joke or a genuine warning that sick people wouldn’t be allowed to hide in the room.
They even found an old-fashioned, possibly handmade alarm system.
And then a tiny (slightly creepy) doll shoe. Eek.
What an amazing find!
