Was a kick ass show. Can't belive you guys missed the second half, that was the best part. Unbelievable story. Aviator From the History Channel Site: "In 1988, an international terrorism expert named Yaron Svoray began covertly searching the forest hills outside an ancient walled village near the French-German border. He hoped to uncover a fortune in buried diamonds left there at the end of World War II. In 1945, two American GIs in the 7th Army had killed a group of German SS officers as they were dividing up 40 uncut diamonds. The GIs took the priceless gems and buried them in a foxhole, planning to return at the end of the war. They never made it back. BLOOD FROM A STONE, based on Svoray's book of the same name, details how he found out about the trove and took up the search for the diamonds--a quest that would consume 15 years and lead him from South African mines to the diamond centers of Amsterdam and Antwerp, the Jewish ghettos and shtetls of Eastern Europe, and the Nazi death camps. Before his journey's end, Yaron would discover something far greater, more momentous and life altering than the monetary riches that had motivated his search."
