About 600 miles from the North Pole, in Alexandra Land, researchers discovered a hidden Nazi military base where Hitler’s men were supposedly conducting secret research. The Nazi scientists are believed to have evacuated the compound back in 1942 after eating infected polar bear meat.
After more than 70 years since it was abandoned, Russian scientists managed to locate a hidden Nazi military base. The remote area where the discovery was made preserved a WWII scent, with documents, bombshells, and bullets lying around, painting the picture of a war long fought.
Alexandra land was a strategic location during the second word conflagration as it hosted a valuable, accurate weather station. The data that came out of the facility was vital for planning troops movement and military attacks.
As all the other weather stations in the area were under the occupation of the Allies, Hitler considered Alexandra Land a key location for his invasion. However, the Nazi dubbed the base “Treasure Hunter” or “Schatzgraber,” which implies that they were working on other things apart daily weather reports.
When the base was first established, a detachment of scientists and soldiers were dropped off on Alexandra Land. The usual supplies that came via air drops came to a halt at a certain point, forcing the men to survive by eating polar bear meat. Unfortunately, the meat was infected with roundworms, leading to a sudden evacuation in 1944.
Given Hitler’s obsession with the supernatural, some researchers say that the base had an alternate goal, that of seeking for ancient artifacts with untold powers.
The intense cold helped preserve everything from the base including petrol cans, documents, bullets, and clothing items. Unfortunately, the team that made the discovery did not find any trace of strange ancient artifacts, or any other signs of paranormal or supernatural experiments.
Other theories state that the Nazi scientists were trying to create the Übermensch, a race of super humans, similar to the Aryan race that Hitler promoted.
The nature of the experiments that took place under the roof of the base will remain a secret as most of the documents that the expedition found only detailed weather observations. However, not all have been deciphered.
