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.
