Secret Nazi hideout found in Argentine jungle

Built near the end of World War II, the hideout was intended to act as a refuge for escaping Nazis.
Located in the Teyu Cuare provincial park in northern Argentina, the secret lair was part of an effort to provide a safe haven for high ranking Nazi officers in the event of Germany's defeat.

Despite being well concealed in the jungle however the hideout, which was comprised of three stone buildings, was never actually used because the Nazis who did flee to Argentina at the end of World War II were able to live in the country with impunity and could even use their real names.
Within the ruins researchers discovered a number of artefacts including a fragment of porcelain plate with the words "Made in Germany" inscribed on it and several coins with Nazi symbols on them.

"Analyzing the material could take many months," said Daniel Schavelzon of the University of Buenos Aires. "It's even possible there are other buildings we still haven't found."

"It's a complicated area to work in, with lots of vegetation, impenetrable."

Well not surprised. Seem to recall the Nazis made some sort of contact with Juan Perron of Argentina.And don't forget many countries have embassies and consulates in countries throughout the world. In San Antonio we have the Mexican Consulate,they have a place downtown. There were if you read Weird New Jersey german americans that had camps in New jersey and some of these people were nazi smypathizers. It might have been some sort or resort for germans in the area. Funny story.My sister's husband Ross is Jewish and he and his family know our dad was german. Well my sister once mentioned that s... [More]

well, anyways, to get back on topic, it seems the entire claim is a fake.................. "But the truth is a little more mundane. For a start, the dilapidated buildings were not recently “discovered” – they have actually been open to the public for decades, along with other ruins which date back to the 17th and 18th century settlements established by Jesuit missionaries – and which give the region its name. Not far from the “Nazi” site are the remains of San Ignacio Miní, a Baroque monastery which is one of the area’s most-visited tourist attractions. At least 10 years ago, the local tourist... [More]

Funny story.My sister's husband Ross is Jewish and he and his family know our dad was german. Well my sister once mentioned that someday she'd like to go there and visit relatives. Ross offered to come along and said he spoke german so he could translate. Jessica was surprised and said what about the nazis,to which he replied most of them gone to South America. Made me crack up laughing. Are there really people who are afraid to go to Germany, because of something that happened 70 years ago ? Would she be afraid to go to Spain, for fear of the Spanish inquisition ? Nobody expects the Spanish i... [More]

Why can't people that start posting on this forum make their first post a bit more important and relevant to the actual subject matter at hand and not make fools of themselves so much so that they turn into one of the usual "drive-by" posters and will never be heard from again?

I'm on the fence about whether this truly is a Nazi lair. The only thing that makes it a secret is that is was "lost" in the jungle.
