Nazi secret base discovered by Russians in Arctic
Arctic is a place where the Earth is frozen and there is snow till your vision goes. But sometimes in the extreme and harsh weather conditions like Arctic, you may come across something that is amazing and some Russian scientists discovered exactly that. They found a site that was mentioned in the history books as myth or legend and with their discovery, the books will be rewritten. Read on to find out what.
1 What was found by the Russian scientists?
The Russian scientists on the Arctic have discovered something that will not only amaze you, but will also terrify you. Remains of what seems like a secret research base built by Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany have been found by researchers on the Alexandra land. The base was named Treasure Hunter or “Schatzgraber” in German and despite the place been mentioned by historians in many books, people thought of it as nothing but a myth or legend. The base was built in 1942, just after the invasion of Russia by the Nazi Germany and despite the claims in the books; it was used for a very simple purpose, to keep an eye on the ever changing weather patterns in the Arctic. However the legend states that it was abandoned after a freak poisoning incident in 1944.
2 Who were Nazis?
Nazis or the Nazi Germany is a name given to the state of Germany by historians which was ruled by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party from 1933-1945. Germany was turned into a fascist state under the dictatorship of Hitler and the period of 1940-1945 was known as the Third Reich. The regime came to an end in April of 1945 with the death of Adolf Hitler and the end of World War II in Europe. Extreme racism against Jews, gypsies and many other races was the central feature of the regime and it resulted in deaths of over 5 million Jews and other races. The Nazi regime was known for conducting cruel experiments on the prisoners of various concentration camps namely Auschwitz and for also spreading Nazi propaganda via films, radio and mass rallies. Many historians believed that in his quest to make the Aryan race the master race of the world, Hitler ordered many secret missions to different parts of the world and this secret base was part of something bigger.
3 The secret weather base
So this weather base by the name of Treasure Hunter was active from 1942 -1944 and was used to keep an eye on the weather. But in 1944, the entire team stationed at the base got poisoned after they consumed some bad polar bear meat. How the meat of the polar bear got poisoned is a mystery in itself, but the recently done research has suggested that the Nazi researchers suffered from trichinella parasites. They had to be evacuated by Nazi U boats in 1944 and the abandoned base was reclaimed by the Arctic. The Russian researchers found well preserved paper documents, over 500 artifacts and WWII era meteorological equipment in the base. This base was important in providing Nazi generals and Hitler with vital data on which they planned their invasion of Russia.
