IT'S the last great unexplored wilderness on the face of planet Earth and is shrouded in icy mysteries.
Some conspiracy theorists believe the Nazis claimed an area of Antarctica as German territory and sent an expedition there.
German scientists then mapped the area to discovered a network of rivers and caves, one of which led to a large underground lake.
A city-sized base was built near the lake called "Base 22" or "New Berlin", which was supposedly was home to not only Nazis, according to Vladimir Terziski, from Bulgaria.
However, the Nazis really DID have a base in the Arctic, which was abandoned more than 70 years ago when its crew was poisoned by polar bear meat.
Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd Jr. (October 25, 1888 – March 11, 1957) was an American naval officer and explorer. He was a recipient of the Medal of Honor, the highest honor for valor given by the United States, and was a pioneering American aviator, polar explorer, and organizer of polar logistics. Aircraft flights in which he served as a navigator and expedition leader crossed the Atlantic Ocean, a segment of the Arctic Ocean, and a segment of the Antarctic Plateau. Byrd claimed that his expeditions had been the first to reach both the North Pole and the South Pole by air. However, his claim to have reached the North Pole is disputed.
ADMIRAL BYRD AND OPERATION HIGHJUMP ...In 1947, Admiral Richard E. Byrd led 4,000 military troops from the U.S., Britain and Australia in an invasion of Antarctica (Operation Highjump and follow-up), but encountered heavy resistance from Nazi 'flying saucers' and had to call off the invasion. A Rear-Admiral who was in that invasion has retired in Texas, and said he was shocked when he read the *Fire From The Sky* material. He knew there were a lot of aircraft and rocket shoot-downs but did not realize the situation was so bad. The invasion of ANTARCTICA consisted of three battle groups from Norfolk, VA, on Dec. 2, 1946. They were led by Byrd's command ship, the ice-breaker *Northwind,* and consisted of the catapult ship *Pine Island,* the destroyer *Brownsen,* the aircraft-carrier *Phillipines Sea,* the U.S. submarine *Sennet,* two support vessels *Yankee* and *Merrick,* and two tankers *Canisted* and *Capacan,* the destroyer *Henderson* and a floatplane ship *Currituck.* A British-Norwegian force and a Russian force, and I believe some Australian and Canadian forces were also involved. On March 5, 1947 the *El Mercurio* newspaper of Santiago, Chile, had a headline article "On Board the Mount Olympus on the High Seas" which quoted Byrd in an interview with Lee van Atta: "Adm. Byrd declared today that it was imperative for the United States to initiate immediate defence measures against hostile regions. The admiral further stated that he didn't want to frighten anyone unduly but that it was a bitter reality that in case of a new war the continental United States would be attacked by flying objects which could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds. (Earlier he had recom- mended defence bases at the NORTH Pole.) Admiral Byrd repeated the above points of view, resulting from his personal knowledge gathered both at the north and south poles, before a news conference held for International News Service." (Note: Just as there have been claims of "warm" land in Antarctica which the Nazis may have taken advantage of, there have historically existed leg- ends of other "lost lands" or valleys in the northern extremities. For instance, one legend is spoken of in the Apocryphal book of II Esdras, chapter 13. This is a book of non-canonical Jewish legends and such which were gathered during the 400-year "period of silence" which existed between the closing of the Old Testament [Torah] and the New Testament records. This apocryphal work, although not considered to contain "infallible and divinely inspired" revelation, does give an interesting passage on the possible whereabouts of the 9 1/2 "lost" tribes of Israel. In Israel, three-and-a-half tribes have been documented: Judah, Benjamin, the black Dannite tribes of Ethiopia, and half of the tribe of Levi. No-one has been able as of this writing to document any known culture as having direct decent from the other "lost" tribes [including the two half-Josephite-tribes of Ephraim and Mannassah which are considered to be distinct tribes of their own]. The II Esdras account tells of the lost tribes being taken into Assyria and beyond. However, not wishing to be tempted by the practices of the pagan tribes who surrounded them, they chose to proceed northward beyond the river Sambatyon -- which miraculously parted for them. But there they were not content, and by divine leading they disappeared into the far NORTH into a land called "Arzareth" where "never men dwelt", and from whence according to the legend they will one day return in power and glory. There are other accounts of strange geothermally-warmed lands beyond a "great ice barrier" in the far north situated in a polar concavity similar to that at the top of an apple or an orange, yet hidden from human view by a perpetual cloud- cover or mist created by the interaction of warm and cold air. Whether these legends are true or not, or in fact whether the Apocryphal legend is true or not, one should realize that the polar areas HAVE always held a sense of fascina- tion in the minds of many of the nations on earth... possibly because of the fact that they still remained very much a 'mystery'. The Nazi's sent out numerous polar expeditions, which were justified largely by the Germanic legends of a lost polar country called "Ultima Thule" which was supposedly inhabited by an ancient Aryan super-race. From these legends the very superstitious and occult-oriented Nazi leaders established the "Thule" society and other inter- connected cults which provided the major motivating force for the racist Nazi ideologies, and their tragic outgrowth. - Wol.) When Byrd returned to the States, he was hospitalized and was not allowed to hold any more press conferences. In March 1955, he was placed in charge of Operation Deepfreeze which was part of the International Geophysical Year (1957-1958) exploration of the Antarctic. He died, some have suggested he was murdered, in 1957... UFO researchers are also aware of strange sightings of 'flying saucers' with swastikas or iron crosses on them, "aliens" speaking German, etc. An example is the American Reinhold Schmidt -- whose father was born in Germ- any -- who tells in his book *Incident At Kearney* (Nebraska) that he was taken on a 'flying saucer' on several occasions. He said the crew spoke German and acted like German soldiers. He said they took him to the Polar region (if someone were making up a story, why would they claim to be taken, of all places, to the pole?) After returning he was subjected to persecution by the U.S. Government. His description [of the aerial discs] matched pictures captured from the Germans.

In 1959, three large newspapers in Chile reported front page articles about UFO encounters where the crew members appeared to be German soldiers. IN the 1960s there were reports in New York and NEW JERSEY of flying saucer "aliens" who spoke German, or English with a German accent. In the Julius and Ethel Rosenberg atomic espionage trials, they spoke of "warships of space." Since they had access to top secret information, about what were they talking?
