No. Not *that* “Die Glocke.” That’s a stupid urban myth propagated  by irritating scam artists, lazy and/or credulous “historians” and dumbasses. This, instead, is about a bell installed in an Austrian castle in 1939 that is still bonging away. Covered, as it turns out, with swastikas and tributes to Hitler.

    What is “Die Glocke”? I’ve never heard of that one before.

    purposeful destruction of artifacts seems kind of short-sighted and unnecessary to me. it happened, it’s a part of world history whether you are offended by it or not. burying it in the ground, melting it down, whatever… is the equivalent of sticking your head in the sand.
