Hello all,

I was not sure which forum to post in but I thought this one to be more suitable for the content. It seems there was a secret Nazi Arctic base after all? f7e09890bc447cc38f651f1d8309a38

A TOP secret Nazi base in the depths of the Arctic has been found by Russian scientists after more than 70 years.
The mysterious site is located on a remote island in Russian territory — more than 960km from the North Pole, reports The Sun.
Set up in 1942, a year after Adolf Hitler invaded the Soviet Union, the military outpost on Alexandra land was christened “Schatzgraber” or “Treasure Hunter”.

The island was strategically vital to both sides during World War II because of its value in producing weather reports
The information that it produced was crucial for the movement of troops and equipment in the frozen north of the USSR.

This was especially true as the brutal Russian winter set in that year, causing the relentless German advance to grind to a halt in the snow.
And the island was all the more important because most of the other potential sites capable of producing polar weather reports in the region were held by the Allies.

But the name given to the base suggests the Nazis may have had another, more secret, mission — possibly searching for a mythical treasure trove or ancient artefacts.

Nope. This base is in the Arctic, not the Antarctic. Still an interesting find though.
