Default Blood from a stone

I just saw this documentary and I was blown away. It's the story of two GIs who buried a fortune in uncut diamonds in a foxhole on the battlefields of Europe, the Israeli treasure hunter who went looking for them, lost comrades and coming home.

I agree, it is a great documentary. Hard to believe that after all that struggle they actually were able to find the diamonds. And what they did with them was even more amazing.


Great story.
