In June 1941. arrived in Samarkand scientific expedition led by archaeologist MM. Gerasimov, to study the monuments of Central Asian architecture, erected in the early XV century., Mausoleum 'Gur-Emir', where he was buried Tamerlan.1) Local residents, instigated by the same mullahs have tried to stop digging. But the atheist Gerasimov continued to work, and soon reached the tomb, archaeologists. June 20, 1941, Mr.. 'Leningradskaya Pravda reported that raised jade coffin. Folk legend extant, ascribes this stone cause brutal wars ... ' - Wrote a correspondent. Such a fantastic belief that the movement of the stone in the world war will begin, amused many readers.

Igor Bunich believes that the true purpose of the expedition was to search for treasures Gerasimova. 'The stated goal Stalin concentration of gold, platinum and precious stones in the hands of the state continued to vigorously implemented. If in Russia and Ukraine by the middle 30-ies have already been plowed all the cemeteries and opened almost all the graves in the hope of finding gold or false teeth, . in the territories of Central Asian republics such events from time to time were not,
. The desecration of graves and mausoleums, according to the laws of Islam, is one of the most terrible crimes. And since the liberation war in Central Asia, . broke even in 20-ies, . raged not subsided and was suppressed only by 1939, . having a romantic name of "combating Basmachis", . that Stalin himself and his satraps in the field still had enough sense not to give too much cause for irritation of the local population,
. But it was the turn of the Central Asian and shrines. Particularly attracted the greedy eyes of the nomenclature majestic mausoleum of Tamerlane in Samarkand. According to legend, confirmed by archival documents, the great Asian conqueror in his campaigns grabbed fabulous, great treasures, most of them ordered to put in a tomb. In May 1941. large team of the NKVD in Moscow, accompanied by experts from the Leningrad Hermitage, traveled to Samarkand for the opening of the tomb. Keeper of the memorial octogenarian Masood Alaev, horrified, showed visitors the cautionary inscription carved on the tomb in the year of death of Tamerlane. The inscription warned that anyone who dares to disturb the peace of the departed master and open the tomb, will release his own country the terrible demons of devastating war. In any case, to play safe, this was reported in Moscow. From there came the order: Alaeva arrested for spreading false rumors and panic, the tomb open immediately. June 19, 1941, Mr.. a huge slab of green jade sarcophagus covering Tamerlane, was raised. TASS report of this event on the eve of war, reprinted by many newspapers. If this is a coincidence, it is very strange '(Bunich AND. Gold Party. SPb., 1992. S. 132).

Add that the calculations of Stalin and the KGB at finding treasures were under a completely scientific basis. 'Magnetic observations in 1925 over the tomb of Timur - wrote a famous archaeologist M.E. Masson, - confirmed the presence of paramagnetic her body, probably the remnants of the coffin, and, perhaps, other subjects' (Berezikov E. Magic Stone Timur / / Star of the East. 1990. ? 4).

As M. Gerasimov, then to extract from the burial of the skull of Tamerlane, he reproduced the alleged appearance of a formidable ruler. And the remains of Tamerlane were returned to the tomb. Heavy tombstone again took its place.
