Random Creepiest Ghost Stories And Legends From WWII

    Missing Children

    Missing Children

    [ranking: 1]
    This story comes from Reddit user Igloo444. Their grandfather was a member of the British Army and was stationed in a remote village in the Swiss Alps during the winter of 1943. The village quickly got snowed in, and all the telephone lines were out. The roads were blocked, and the whole battalion was just stuck in the Swiss Alps for the entire winter.
    Most of the villagers only spoke German, and most of the soldiers only spoke English. So when the soldiers were out at a local bar one night and a man began yelling "Where?? take you?? the children?" at them, they were pretty confused. They rounded up a translator and took the man back to the base, where he told them that, since their arrival, several small objects had gone missing. A tarp. Some wood. A halberd, which is similar to an ax. And then the children started disappearing. If it had just been one child, they probably would have written it off as a weird or tragic incident. They were, after all, stuck in the mountains, surrounded by snow and wild animals. But three kids?
    Redditor /u/Igloo444 explains:
    The Captain told the villagers that he would continue to look into the matter, and that he would begin sending some of his men to patrol the streets each night looking for whoever (or whatever) was the culprit behind all the strange [disappearances].
    Later that night, Private Reginald disappeared from the barracks.
    Disappearing children was one thing, but a grown man? It seemed unlikely that an animal (even a wolf) could have taken down a healthy full-grown man on its own. Naturally, rumors began to surface that there was some sort of monster living in the mountains that came down at night to feast on the occupants of the village."
    So they keep doing nightly patrols. One night, the grandfather and a few other soldiers see a person standing outside the windows of a darkened house, peering into it. They shout for the figure to stay put. Instead, it takes off running. They gave chase. Eventually, it jumped into a hidden cave and began targeting them. They returned fire, and when the exchange stopped, they investigated. They found Reginald in the cave, deceased, surrounded by seven half-eaten children.

    The Headless Gringa

    During WWII, the US Army set up a base in the Galapagos Islands. According to legend, a soldier and his girlfriend were living at the base. The soldier found out that she was cheating on him, so he pushed her off a cliff, ending her life. But despite how gruesome that is, it gets worse: as she fell, her head got caught between some rocks and she was decapitated.
    The soldier covered up the incident, but the woman still haunts the island, appearing as a vengeful spirit to men who are alone at night.

    A Ghost In Islington

    A Ghost In Islington

    [ranking: 13]
    Rosina French lived in the London Borough of Islington during the darkest days of WWII. Both she and her husband performed separate duties to help aid the country in the fight against Adolf Hitler. In fact, French was a volunteer fire watcher. She couldn't serve on the front lines, but she was part of a rotation that checked for bomb threats and traveling fires. It was during one of her night shifts that she encountered an allegedly supernatural force. While standing at her post, French noticed a strangely shiny, white figure. At first, she thought it was a gravestone or person, but the apparition was too tall to be either.
    She realized the creature must be a ghost when she began to feel her hair stand on end. The figure did not approach the woman or harm her. As the story is told by French's son, Alan:
    It was when she peered more to the left, where she had possibly not glanced before, she experienced what must have been one of the most frightening sights in her life. There it was! A very tall shining white figure! Such a conspicuous contrast to the surrounding area's darkness! The apparition was too tall for the average tombstone, but more alarmingly, it was also too tall for a living human being. The sighting was so eerie, it must be a ghost! What other explanation could there be? It was definitely a phantom-like figure. Oh Dear! The possible reality of the situation had started to sink in. Despite her fear, she nervously accepted that she was witnessing a spectral sighting.
    A supernatural experience was not one that she wished. My mother was of a nervous disposition. In fact, she could be sometimes exceptionally highly strung. Looking at a ghost whilst performing fire watching duty from her doorstep was not what she needed. She required something to calm her down. She could utter no sound, for her vocal chords became useless. She could not move. She could only stand, transfixed in stoic silence. Then something else strange started to happen. It was a condition that she had heard of, but as far as I am aware, had not experienced. She claimed that she actually felt the hairs on her head move. My mother firmly believed that they were stiffening and standing on their ends. That is how terrified she was.

    Nazis And The Occult

    Nazis And The Occult

    [ranking: 9]
    One former Navy serviceman recounted his chilling experience while he was living aboard a barge in Norfolk, VA, in 1999. He and another crew member shared a fondness for WWII history, so his friend gave him a strange book. It was about the Third Reich trying to find and use occult artifacts to help them win. He writes:
    For those not overly-religious, the 'Spear of Destiny,' was the spear used by the Roman soldier Longinus to pierce the side of Christ during the crucifixion. The myth went that anyone that possessed Longinus' spear would hold God-like powers. The [SS] were [unstable] enough to believe in that stuff.
    One night, he was reading the book before going to bed. It was a chapter about Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler, who led an archaeology team for the SS. After that, he put the book under his pillow and falls asleep. Later that night, he awoke to the sound of slow, heavy footsteps walking through the bunks in the dark. Then the footsteps passed him:
    [A]ll of the sudden, the curtains to my rack began to blow in towards me, and I can't even describe the cold that accompanied it. It was as if a freezing wind was howling in upon me, and I could feel my jaw lock tight, my teeth instantly becoming a solid block of ice that froze and fused together. I grew up in Michigan and had never known such a cold in all my life. I tried to cry out as the cold pierced me deeply to the core, like ten million frozen needles stabbing me all at once. It was truly indescribable.
    He heard the footsteps pass by him again, and the door to the sleeping compartment open and close. Everything returned to normal. He gave the book back to his friend the next day and told him what happened. The friend laughed it off, but a few weeks later, he experienced the exact same thing. So what does this service member think was responsible for his eerie encounter? He explains:
    Had it been the conniving former chicken farmer Heinrich Himmler, head of the dreaded SS, or could it have been someone even more foul and loathsome; the evil spirit of Adolf Hitler himself, exacting a little payback scare on two active duty US servicemen, the grandsons of men that had helped defeat his military machine?

    The Diplomat Hotel

    The Diplomat Hotel

    [ranking: 2]
    The Diplomat Hotel in Baguio City, Philippines, was once a monastery in the early 1900s. During WWII, Japanese soldiers invaded the monastery and beheaded all the clergy and nuns. They turned the building into a sanatorium, and after the conflict, it was converted into a hotel. Guests often reported seeing black figures and a woman in white.
    They also heard screaming and banging in the middle of the night. The hotel is now abandoned, and a prime spot for ghost hunters.

    Sandakan Death March Ghosts

    In 1945, Allied forces pushed the Japanese Army out of Borneo. Rather than give up their prisoners, the Japanese Army forced thousands of Allied soldiers to march more than 160 miles over the course of a month. Only six captors survived.
    In 2010, Major John Tulloch retraced part of their route, driving along the path the soldiers marched. He took dozens of photos, including one that is eerily reminiscent of hunched-over soldiers marching down the road. Major Tulloch says that the illusion was created by a towel on the dashboard of the car reflecting on the glass of the windshield. Despite the explanation for the picture, he doesn't think it was a coincidence:
    It took me a few moments to work out how it had occurred but it was too weird for words. I showed it to several people and they said it is quite extraordinary, some even refused to look at it because it was so haunting.
