Nazi secret weapons facility discovered

An underground World War II complex used to develop nuclear weapons has been unearthed in Austria.
The facility was discovered in the town of St. Georgen an der Gusen by Austrian filmmaker Andreas Sulzer after years of anomalous radiation readings in the area had pointed to the existence of a secret nuclear weapons development site.

The 75-acre complex is thought to have been run by SS General Hans Kammler and is located near to the B8 Bergkristall factory where the first jet fighters were developed.

Sulzer believes that the facility would have relied on forced labor and was manned by inmates who were chosen for their skills in physics, chemistry and other sciences. "Up to 320,000 inmates are said to have died because of the brutal conditions in the subterranean labyrinth," he said.
How close the Nazis got to developing a weapon of mass destruction however is unclear.

"We owe it to the victims to finally open the site and reveal the truth," said Sulzer.

Excavations at the facility are expected to resume next month.

Pass up the chance to find out what latest hoard of technological goodies they might discover? I very much doubt that anyone would pass up that kind of opportunity, particularly if it might give them one up over the Russkies. There are many of these tunnels. And, many of them had been " caved in " by the Nazi's, and no one has yet to dig them out. It is a hobby for some people to go through these tunnels, and map them. Many of them are getting to bad ( dangerous ) to venture into, so it is becoming illegal. One man has been trying to get someone to fund researching some of them, to see what is... [More]

I hope they find nuclear fueled robo-zombies

Would explain this if we look deeper...

Don't get to put off by the reporting on this article, the dramatic claims do come from a film maker as opposed to a historian... I am sure they have uncovered something, as mentioned by Sakari there are many such finds but this one has been primed with BS in preparation for the wild claims the up coming documentary will make to boost viewing figures. Interesting nonetheless.

Interesting story, hopefully a proper survey of the place will be carried out.

Every so often I search deeply into the minds of Hitler and the Nazi's. I literally have the worst nightmares imaginable after I do so, because it was real life abominations...not a Hollywood . I'll take a few years off from researching until I read an article like this, and then I'm delving back into the freakish Nazi's. What the hell was up with those people?

This is an extremely important development, both because it confirms rumours about the Nazis' A bomb research (and locates the centre of operations), but because it also for the first time provides some solid data about Kammler's movement after the war. It seems Nick Cook was correct in his assessment that the US acquired him, and no doubt all the info about this and Project Chronos went with him. It strikes me that since the SS used slave labour extensively in their weapons projects there might well have been secret facilities near all the concentration camps. It also supports Henry Stevens' ... [More]

it might be an extremely important development if there was any truth in any of it, to be sure.
