We visited U-boat with some friends. We were lucky to have such a nice warm day.
U-534 was headed towards Norway, when it was attacked by a Liberator aircraft. She took heavy damage and began to sink. Amazingly, 49 of the 52 crew members survived.
The vessel laid forgotten on the sea bed for over 40 years. In August 1993 the wreckage was raised from the seabed in the hope of finding hidden treasure on board. Nothing was found, so the mystery of why U-534 refused to surrender remains to this day.
