Nazis in Antarctica: The Five Essentials You Need to Know

1) The 1938-1939 Antarctic Expedition: This expedition was led by Alfred Ritscher, a seasoned polar explorer and consisted of the 143 ton ship Schwabenland, with two float planes launched by steam catapult. It’s only become known recently that the expedition was under the nominal control of Hermann Goering himself and was sponsored by Hess. The planes took over 10,000 photos of the continent, and overflew nearly a third of Antarctica, while ground teams allegedly found ice free valleys, with geothermal springs, and ice caverns able to act as U-boat bases. Researchers on this expedition were tasked with analyzing potential food sources, such as penguins, birds, lichens and Walrus. German dietitians were commissioned to prepare tasty and nutritious meals using only local, antarctic, food sources. The Nazi overflew a part of the continent called New Swabia and claimed it for themselves with Nazi-pins and flags thrown from planes.

2) Comments Grand Admiral Karl Donitz: This old school admiral of the Kaiser days is often overlooked in importance by Historians. However it was Donitz that signed the armistice and ended German Resistance, it was Donitz as well, in charge of the Kriegsmarine, that was quoted saying some really strange things. In 1943 he was heard to say, “The German Submarine fleet is proud of having built for the Fuhrer, in another part of the world, a Shangri-La on land, an impregnable fortress.” The year after in 1944 Donitiz reportedly said, “The German Navy will have to accomplish a great task in the future. The German Navy knows all the hiding places in the oceans and therefore it will be easy to bring the Fuhrer to a safe place should the necessity arise, and in which he will have the opportunity to work out his final plans.” In the Nuremberg Trials he allegedly spoke of an “impregnable Fortress, a paradise-like oasis in the middle of eternal ice.”

3) U-530 and U-977 surrender in Argentina: The submarine U-530 was a type XXI-U-boat, or a upgraded derivative. It was said by a crew member to be able to sail 30 knots while submerged, an unheard of speed in those days. U-530 surrendered in Mar Del Plata Argentina on July 10, 1945, three months after the wars end. U-977 surrender in the same location on August 17, 1945. Another submarine, U-465, was scuttled off the Patagonia coast in August and another supposedly surrendered to the Argentine Navy in June, 1945. It is alleged that British and American Intelligence learned U-530 and U-977 both visited Antarctica before their surrender. Further, on May 2, 1945 in the North Atlantic unverified reports from the Chilean newspaper called El Mercurio, and a German ex-pat newspaper in South America called ‘Der Weg’,claimed a Kreigsmarine wolf pack, escaping the fall of the Reich, destroyed a flotilla of British Destroyers between Iceland and Greenland.

4) Operation Highjump: Just months after the war finally ended in the Pacific, the US navy began outfitting an Antarctic expedition of their own. The expedition was led by Rear admiral Richard Byrd, a veteran explorer. The operation began in August 1946 and included 4,700 soldiers, an aircraft escort carrier(Philippines Sea), two seaplane carriers(Pine Island and Curritich) two destroyers (brownsen, Henderson) two escort ships (Yankee, Merrick) two fuelling ships (Canister and Capacan) and a submarine (Sennet). The ground troops were equipped with helicopters, fixed wing DC-3’s and the expedition sported a specially designed armoured tracked vehicle. The expedition was outfitted for eight months and headed for New Swabialand, anchoring off the coast they flew recon mission before the troops were supposedly sent inland. They may have found something too as four aircraft were lost without explanation, along with damage to ships. Admiral Byrd decided to cut the expedition short within 48 hours of the inland expedition. The mission, originally planned for eight months instead lasted eight weeks. Byrd returned to Washington and his logs and journals remain classified to this day. A Chilean reporter called Lee Ann Atta accompanied the mission, as it was officially a mapping expedition and not military in nature… Atta wrote in a March 5, 1947 edition of El Mercurio that, “Byrd announced to me today that it is necessary for the United States to put in effect defensive measures against enemy airmen which come from the polar regions. The admiral further explained that he did not have the intention to scare anyone but the bitter reality is that in case with fantastic speed from one pole to the other.e of a new war the United States would be in a position to be attacked by flyers which could fly from one pole to the other.”

5) Nuclear Detonations: According to researchers such as Stevens and Joseph P. Farrell, under the cover of the Geophysical year the United States sent another expedition to the south pole. Allegedly three nuclear detonations happened on the 27 and 30 of August and September 6, 1958 and were touted as nuclear cooperation at the height of the cold war. The explosions were said to have been blown 300 miles over the continent, and may have something to do with the ozone hole over the south pole. Little is known of this nuclear ‘cooperation’, however the fleet of four destroyers and an aircraft carrier reportedly detonated the bombs over New Swabialand, using operation Argus as a pretext. Soon after rumours of Nazis in Antarctica fizzle out, however many new rumours begin popping up in Argentina and the Andes.

Does this prove Nazis escaped to Antarctica after the war? No, but it suggests as much, thus the conspiracy continues…
