Argentine archaeologists find secret Nazi lair in jungle

A team of Argentine archaeologists investigating a series of ruins in the jungle, close to the border with Paraguay, believe they have discovered a secret Nazi lair.

The cluster of stone structures, now covered by thick vines and accessible only when using a machete to cut through the undergrowth, contain stashes of German coins from the late 1930s, fragments of “Made in Germany” porcelain, and Nazi symbols on the walls.

“We can find no other explanation as to why anyone would build these structures, at such great effort and expense, in a site which at that time was totally inaccessible, away from the local community, with material which is not typical of the regional architecture,” said Daniel Schavelzon, leader of the team.

    Bizarre but sounds right. Many Nazis ended up in South America.

      Yes, and along with a few in Canada and the U.S.A.

    If they liked the anti-semetic Nazis of Germany, they’ll probably welcome the anti-semite Nazis of Islam.

    They haven’t yet found the secret “underground tunnels” that supposedly directly connect to the various Nazi constructed baloneyum refineries scattered throughout the border areas near Paraguay?
    This is somewhat disappointing news. Wonder if they have complete archives of Argosy, True, and other completely reliable “Mens” pulp magazines from the ’40s and ’50s to assist their research.

    Not surprised if it is true, the Nazis where big on bunkers all over the place. There are still a couple in Germany that are listed on official records that no one has ever found despite knowing roughly where they were built.

    During the first world war Britain imported a lot from South America there was the battle of the Coronel, and the Falklands. The first naval battle of WW2 would be the battle of the river plate and Britain again would import a lot from South America

    Given the history of importance of the area, setting up a secret radio station for intelligence gathering/weather/convoy spotting post isn’t a surprise, it’s just
    preparing for war against Britain and France, using the lessons learned in WW1.
    They also set up stations in Greenland and likely other places as well.

    The German naval staff may have been Nazis, but they were’nt stupid.
