Hitler's Secret Nazi Base discovered in Arctic Circle
26 October 2016 Current Affairs GK: A team of scientists in October 2016 discovered a secret Nazi base of German dictator Adolf Hitler located 1000 kilometres from the North Pole.

For decades, this location of the mysterious site known as Schatzgraber or Treasure Hunter on Alexandra Land in the Arctic Circle had remained unknown.

Highlights of the Discovery :  About 500 items of historical value were collected on the grounds of the former Treasure Hunter German station that operated on the Alexandra Land island of Franz Josef Land.

The supposed weather station is believed to have been constructed on direct orders from Hitler in 1942, a year after his invasion of Russia. It was in service from 1943, before being abandoned in July 1944 when its crew was poisoned after being forced to eat raw polar bear meat infected with roundworms while running low on supplies.

Researchers exploring the isolated island, which is now a Russian Territory, discovered relics including the ruins of bunkers, discarded petrol canisters and even paper documents dating from the Second World War.

Researchers found bullets, scraps of tents and personal items such as shoes; many of which appear to be dated and marked with the swastika.
