As many of you who've read my books on the Nazi aspect of this big story know, I have long maintained serious doubts about the claims that during their 1938-1939 expedition to Antarctica they began the establishment of large bases there, and continued to do so during the war. My chief reason for opposition to this long-standing myth has been that operationally, it would have placed severe limitations on the German Kriegsmarine during the war. Additionally I have also maintained that the idea of a large research facility in Antarctica was also very dubious, since the advanced physics projects such as the Bell and so on would have required enormous electrical power, taxing those meager naval resources even more, for imagining shuttling by U-Boat from Germany the construction crews, technicians, and equipment to make all of it possible.

With that in mind, watch these(they're about 12 minutes in length, total). I apologize as I have not had the time to translated the various title cards that appear in the newsreels, but here, the message is in the pictures anyway.

Nazi Newsreel of Antarctic Expedition

Nazi Newsreel of Antarctic Expedition Pt 2

First, let me say that there is no question in my mind that we are looking at actual authentic UFA newsreels of the 1939-1939 Ritscher Expedition to the southern-most continent.

It is this that makes the comparison between the two films interesting, for in the second, shorter film, one is given the impression that the expedition was conducted by a U-Boat, when in fact, the first film gets that part of the story correct: the expedition was led by Captain Ritscher, and it was mounted from a large sea-plane tender ship. But what I find really really interesting in the second film are the images. One sees clear evidence that the Nazis found large caves there, exactly as has always been maintained by the "Nazi Antarctica Myth."

But then the film shows some truly remarkable thins, and does so without commentary; after showing us various pictures of large caves in Antarctica, it then goes on to show blueprints for a large underground bunker or factory, and then its actual construction in Germany. It shows after this a picture of research facilities - again without commentary - with what appears to be two very large Van de Graf generators or Tesla coils (I forget which, at the moment). But the important point here is that it shows research facilities and electrical equipment.

All of this, of course, suggests that indeed the Nazis had plans for Antarctica, and that those plans exceeded those of using that continent merely as a U-Boat base.

The first film does not show or say anything else, but this is the clear impression that it gives. There is the usual statement by Reichsminister Goebbels at the beginning of the film, the endless music of Wagner playing in the background. The difference between these two films suggests that the first one may never have seen the theater, for it is very revealing; the second film contains little to none of the imagery of the first: no blueprints for underground factories, no construction of the same in Nazi Germany, no Tesla coils or Van de Graf generators, no hints of research facilities.

Whether or not the Nazis ever did succeed in the plans suggested by the first film is not, for the moment, here at issue, for the first film does in a way corroborate the persistent legend aboutr Nazi survival in Antarctica, and it is true that the size of the caves depicted in the film could easily shelter a fairly substantial number of people. Sustaining them would have been the problem.

We are left again, with a maybe of Nazi survival in Antarctica, a maybe that could, might, just slimly support the idea of some sort of research facility, though that maybe just now grew a lot stronger.

    I have always wondered why Werner Von Braun was photographed in business clothes.The one picture on the interent where he is in uniform obscures his face. Even the Russians have no picture of VB in SS uniform? We know he was a member of the SS. Doesn’t it strike anyone odd that in a totalitarian state like Nazi Germany that anyone would be allowed to be photographed out of uniform if it didn’t have Hitler’s blessing? His brother looks for the Americans to surrender to when the Soviets were advancing on their position. Von Braun knew he was going to America. I just wonder whose idea it was, Von Braun’s or someone else’s. I doubt we will ever know but it is suspicous that he has such a squeaky clean image as if he had foreknowledge that it would sabatoge his image if he were associated closely with the SS.

    There are a lot things few are aware of and kept secret by our present government.
    Unless one has specific clearances, no info.
    Many ‘discoveries’ are ‘need to know’ and ‘your eyes only’ with a list of names.
    Besides, documents state that the US imported most of the Third Reich…including sciences they already had.
    Interesting that things can still be hidden right in front of ones face since before we kept records…and still there telling all.
    As to the ‘science’ here, so far, not much exciting…
    Of course this all depends on just exactly how far anyone might like to get into all this…?
    Dual accelerator with a neutral center shaft…indeed!
    Counter rotating magnetic fields and a collector, hmmm?
    Dimensional warpage + direction, simple enough?
    Plasma and hyper dimensional physics, please…and make that in applicational terms.
    We could field protect our planet from the astral incoming, IF that was wanted. Remember Agenda 21 depopulation…natural disasters don’t point guilty fingers.
    Gee, this place could be fun…hehehe

    The film scratches are obviously fake, the flicker, grain framing , it is pretty bad the whole fake film look. If the guy who posted it is going to create a forgery use actual film and frame for the original aspect ratio of the time of 1.33:1 not 16×9 HD.

  4. Anders on July 19, 2011 at 3:33 am

    At least the second film is a clear, obvious forgery. One of the photos (some people in uniform looking at models of buildings) is marked “Bundesarchive” – meaning that it is a post-war photo from a Bundes Republik Deutschland archive. The film is an obvious hoax, the forgerer probably being the individual who claims he “found it” in Copenhagen.

  5. Trismegistus on July 6, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    The poster (Christian Henriksen)’s supposed Facebook Page says that he likes ‘Iron Sky,’ a movie about refugee Nazis colonizing the dark side of the moon only to return to earth today.


    A Nazi secret base in Antarctica sounds like a great way to create some hype for this movie.

    • Ridge on July 7, 2011 at 7:22 am

      What I find most interesting about Iron Sky, is the people making it are using crowd sourcing for finance and research that is done for the script.

    Looks like a clever fake to me. Im sure I caught a few stills from the Spitzberg expedition in there…

  7. Robert on May 29, 2011 at 2:53 am

    For the obvious reasons everyone else has already given, I never really given any credence to the Antarctic u-boat base story. With that said, the whole Operation High Jump thing has always seemed strange to me, not least because of a quote I’ve heard & read several times, that was attributed to Byrd. It was something to the effect of “The next war we fight will involve extremely fast aircraft, attacking from the poles.” (I paraphrase, of course.)

    Has anyone else heard this? If so, is it authentic? As I said, I’ve never believed the Antarctic base story, but I have the luxury of never having had to face down Hitler & his minions either. With all of the “Hitler is still alive” rumors(I mean, even STALIN was saying it), is it possible that the gov. figured they’d better at least check it out? Again, I’m not saying I think they found any Nazi’s OR aliens down there, but if there was a chance of it being true, I can see why they would feel they had to at least check, you know?

    Any thoughts?

  8. Sidney B. on May 24, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    As a German living in Berlin I can only say that the Video is a hoax. Fake footage mixed with some legit photos from the real Neuschwabenland expedition. Maybe from the same people forcing the Haunebu-Vril-Legend down our throats time and time again, that is Norbert Ratthöfer from the “THG” (Tempelhofgesellschaft). The same guys who made that “documentary” about flying saucers in Germany:


    Alas, there is not a single slide without grammatical errors, apart from the Video FX used to make it seem “vintage”.

    Keep up the good work, Joe. Loving your books – they represent the serious side on German Wunderwaffe research.

    However, a recent phenomenon seems to be that the Haunebu / Vril legend seems to find its way into more legit channels, like the History network – stating it as fact, take a look:

    • Ridge on May 25, 2011 at 7:57 am

      TBH, I don’t think anything mainstream is legit. They all have their own agenda and don’t allow views that contradict it.

    • Robert on May 29, 2011 at 6:45 am

      Sidney B.,
      I was wondering if you could tell me what, in your experience, the average German thinks about the idea of a post war, “Nazi International” type group is? I mean, do people there think it’s true, not true? Or maybe no one even talks about it? It’s something I’ve wondered about, but never asked any of the Germans I’ve known, that entire chapter of history still being such a sensitive subject and all.
      Since we don’t know each other, and again because it may be something you don’t like to speak about, I’ll understand if you don’t reply. Thank you very much.

  9. Varg on May 12, 2011 at 1:09 am

    Wow neat stuff! But even if parts of the film have been faked or manipulated those pictures are very interesting and could be authentic, nevertheless the actions of the US after the war like with operation high jump make it seem like something was definitely going on there.
    Hopefully more info comes out in the future.

  10. Michael on May 11, 2011 at 7:49 am

    atched the first video. It’s not original, it’s not fake – it’s art.
    It just tries to create a ‘looks like real’-mood, but don’t hides the clues that it is not.
    The Allerseelen logo at start was already mentioned.
    The’ third-reich in ruins watermark ‘ on one picture.
    In the beginning they write that the film material was discovered in metall-boxes which ‘survived’ in a cellar in Berlin. Can’t be a documentary from Nazi-times.
    The caves: If you follow the text narrative, they seem to be in giant Icebergs on the see. The true landing in Antartica follows after this episode.
    Later you see ‘Germania’-models, flaktowers, Thuringian underground facilities, bunker complex drawings with coniferous woodland on the ground above it, etc.
    It’s just a intelectual ‘Neofolk’-video, with inbuild ‘shock-effects’ to scare left-wing sociologists.
    This is just a storm in a water-glas.

  12. Franco on May 10, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    Your books are an inspiration Joseph though this clip is a bit much for even
    me . If we review the number of expeditions to the area we find that early on
    several groups wintered over independent of any outside help. The exploring expedition organized by Richard E. Byrd in 1928 may be considered the
    first of the mechanical age of exploration in Antarctica. The program was
    the first of its kind to utilize the airplane, aerial camera, snowmobile and massive communications resources. All of this he organized at the height
    of the Great Depression on a self-admitted shoe-string budget with two second-hand ships that saw him heaped with derision as bad investments . One ship successfully transported one airplane, 1200 gallons of gasoline, 75 tons of coal, 54 men, 80 dogs and enough food for 15 months. Two main buildings were constructed at Little America along with several prefabricated buildings which were used for special purposes. The primary building was used for a library, hospital, radio laboratory and housing quarters for the physician, geologist, meteorologist and physicist. Another building, built from boxes and crates, served as the machine shop while a third building was used for the mess hall, bunk house and photographic laboratory. A magnetic observatory and weather station was also built. The radio storeroom and aviation workshop were also built from boxes while other rooms were simply carved out of the snow and roofed with tarpaulins. As a prevention against fire, all main structures were built with some distance between them and connected by a series of snow tunnels. Back to the subject at hand : we have ample evidence of the “weather war” going on in the Arctic, this website is quite concise in it’s treatment of the subject :
    With all of the flights and voyages being made to Greenland and Spitsbergen
    and indeed other equally out of the way latitudes of the North many of which
    supported year-long weather research facilities we have to reassess the capabilities of the Kriegsmarine. One commanded by Wilhelm Dege lasted longer than a year on Svalbard and saw the garrison stay past the end of the war with morale quite high and supplies well-stocked. The books written on the hilfkreuzers relay the incredible story of unarmored merchant ships operating everywhere and anywhere including Antarctica where one by itself captured the entire Norwegian whaling fleet of more than a dozen vessels.
    We can only wonder where all the captured cargoes ended up …..

    I hope this isn’t a re-post, but my comments have not been showing up. There is a photo 1/3 of the way through the first purported newsreel which bears the clear watermark “Third Reich in Ruins,” and obviously comes from the website of the same name. This film therefore cannot be genuine, particularly in light of the claims made by its poster.

    • 88Eddie on May 9, 2011 at 12:24 pm

      Sorry for the re-postings! Thanks for such an interesting site, Dr.!

  14. 88Eddie on May 9, 2011 at 8:48 am

    Let me try to comment again. There is a photo about 1/3 of the way through the first “film” which bears the faded but quite legible watermark “Third Reich in Ruins, ” indicating it was taken from the website of the same name. Thus, the film is not authentic, unless you believe it is authentic to splice in new material into what purports to be an historic record.

  15. Dimitrios on May 9, 2011 at 1:41 am

    The 1st video is obviously a fake : it includes the cover of a martial industrial one-man group Cd, namely Allerseelen’s – Neuswabenland . Look it up. The only member of this group is an austrian and has published quite a few booklets about nazi occult themes.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on May 9, 2011 at 1:44 am

      Excellent info Dimitios! That is an interesting connection to say the least, given that many of the postwar Nazi myths come from a circle centered around Vienna…thanks for a great bit of information!!!

  16. jan on May 8, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Clearly a modern day fake, with lots of spelling mistakes. etc.
    At the start it says…Neuswabenland….. while it should be Neuschwabenland and the list gets longer and longer.

  17. Harvey Price on May 8, 2011 at 9:12 pm

    Hi folks,

    Well I think its a hoax or a promotional video or something too. The font used on the film feels too fresh, and the supposed scratchy lines on the films just scream out “fake” to me. Also some of the pictures in the videos have a number of figures all in silouette which is … kind of convenient. It all smacks too much of a manufactured item to me.

    Anyway, I’m pretty sure that the guy who posted it (Christian Andreas Henriksen) runs a website called “oneclickit.net”, and has a facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=531953079

    He is also a graphic designer, apparently.

    So make what you will of that lol

    Anyhow, I don’t think Nazis in the Antarctic are really the worst of our problems at the moment …

    Best wishes

  18. chris on May 8, 2011 at 8:17 pm

    there is definitely a mixture of real ww2 photos and antarctic footage, but the german mistakes i did notice a few as well.
    the whole thing while a fascinating piece of art, seems to me like something made for promoting a dvd or a video game.
    Unfortunately they are getting very good at making those so if one only views them cursorily or when one is tired its easy to mix them up.
    The most glaring thing footage wise was the use of u2 rocket pens and tunnels as supposed Antarctic locations.

  19. Kathie on May 8, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    Very interesting. I noticed a few things, the penguins on the boat reminded me of the passage in your book which described how the Germans took home wildlife and plants from Antarctica and created recipes from the food sources there. Also I noticed in the very detailed film the actual base looks like they called it one of the following (notice the 11)

    I tend to believe the person who posted these videos is on the up and up. He found these films in Denmark. Perhaps someone who had the originals did up their own film sort of a knock off with typos and language errors. The caves remind me of that huge cave the discovered I believe in Vietnam that goes on forever. Really stunning photographs.

  20. Eddie on May 8, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    One slide in the first film carries the faint but clearly readable watermark “3rd Rich in Ruins,” which identifies it as coming from a current website which shows, obviously, various buildings from the 3rd Reich in ruins. Thus, this was certainly not part of any 1939 news reel!

      There are so many flaws in this newreel, yet so much that is authentic, that I still have to wonder about it…its timing, its release now…everything. It seems somehow if yet another message is being sent. Any way one slices this, it is disturbing.

      Thomas, with so many unrelated info, out of context, i don´t care much about the eventual kernels of truth that may exist because… I can´t tell what is it that can actually be related to the bases.
      There are photos of the expedition that are well known. And don´t show anything specific and I don´t think that they would ever be shown if there were.

      If our “democracies” hide a lot, imagine what happens with a totalitarian regime.

      As I ignore the german language, I did not notice the issues identified by Karl.

      I wouldn´t think much about this alleged… “newsreel”. It is too fake to interest me.

      Still, I believe that the misteries arround Antartica are a proper chalenged that can only the tackled only by Joseph himself!

  23. Karl J. Wiktora on May 8, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    Hello Joseph

    Just took your cue to download the vids and translate the texts. What really jumped in my eyes and made me stop analysis after the first couple of seconds is the fact that some of these texts are of a recent date, they are full of orthographic and grammatical mistakes which a German would not make if he or she had received proper schooling in a German school. In fact, there are so many mistakes in some of the texts the obviously English-speaking author made that some of the texts are beyond a shadow of a doubt not genuine. That is, not all of them. Some are the real deal, the phony ones are easily spotted. At the end (frame 47) there is the UFA symbol, underneath which it reads ”im Verlei der Antarktis Bundes Neuschwabenland”. This should read: ”Im Verleih des Antarktis-Bundes Neuschwabenland”. These mistakes are so elementary, the texts cannot be originals. Another example from the beginning of the video: the word ”Gerechtichkeit” does not exist, it should read ”Gerechtigkeit” (justice). The whole sentence at the beginning has nothing to do with German, somebody transcribed what he heard, and the voice-over has been clipped, incoherent pieces were patched together.
    I was born the same year as you, Joseph, and I learned German, among other languages, here in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. Our teacher would not have been amused at all.

    After the first vid I took a look at the second one. There are more text sections which are simply ridiculous, as if somebody had been so stupid as to use translation software. English syntax using German words. These mistakes are easily spotted because somebody wants them to be spotted. There are no coincidences.

    The pictures are a completely different story. I think somebody took original footage and re-worked it. This – maybe contrary to popular belief – does not help credibility, which, I assume, is the intention of these vids. But, as you probably are aware, there have been a number of documentaries made in the sixties, seventies, and eighties. Finding the original versions is well nigh impossible. All one finds is the stuff that’s been SPUN in – remarkably – always the same direction. These guys cannot be bothered with the truth. If you find the versions with the distinctly neo-nazi spin, they’re the fakes. It may be hard to believe, but after the war there still were some good folks around who believed they could tell it the way it really happened.
    The typeface is modern, the old gothic letters should look distinctly different. That’s why they weren’t used any longer after WWII because those who were busy falsifying history couldn’t read them without problems.

    The pictures of the caves are breathtaking, as are those of the gigantic constructions we see. Two pics show the Berlin or Vienna flak towers during construction. One at the end shows a hole that NASA tells us is on Mars.

    Bases in Antarctica would have been a strain on the German budget, but they also strained the British budget from the beginning. There are certain reports of warfare in the Antarctic between British and German forces in the fourties and fifties, and there are those who so gallantly gave their lives to keep the Argentine Malvinas British, which is an obvious lead. The lie not only is different at every level, some levels consist of nothing but lies, whole sections of this construct do in fact not even exist. That’s one of their favorite tactics, give the sheeple a bunch of lies and let them discuss these endlessly, chasing their tails.
    So, Antarctica… there is nothing! Just look at Google Earth, Antarctica is a white spot, so there is nothing. Damn it, why don’t you believe? Stop asking who owns Google Earth!

    • LSM on May 8, 2011 at 2:34 pm

      Hi Karl,

      your insights about the inconsistencies in the German language in this film are spot-on-

      even though I’m a born/raised NE Ohioan, I was was raised bi-lingual by Austrian parents and have been living in Germany since 1978 (before that, starting in 1976, I lived in Bern)-

      what intrigues/baffles me the most is why the Nazis decided to call the whole thing “Neuschwabenland”- what the hell does the Stuttgart area have to do with Antarctica?

      I can only assume there is an occult meaning/influence at work-

      many warmest regards to all,

      Freiburg, Germany

      • Franco on May 10, 2011 at 7:07 pm

        Hello Larry,

        You may be interested in learning that the naming
        of Neuschwabenland was a collective decision by
        the explorers . Just as certain landmarks were named
        after individuals the region itself was named for the
        vessel which made it all possible .

        Franco, New Orleans

      • Karl J. Wiktora on May 16, 2011 at 1:22 am

        Hi Larry,

        In the local Swiss-German dialect, mentioning the ”Schwaben” refers to the Germans as a whole. The Swabian dialect has many similarities to Swiss-German so there may well be a key. But, as Franco noted, the Schwabenland crew certainly were on a quest to discover new horizons and so their mindset could have been such as to memorialize the participants (e.g. Schirmacher Seengruppe (Schirmacher Lakes) etc., Schirmacher was one of the pilots). I do not see the whole crew as members of some conspiracy, therefore the reasons for choosing the names they did may not be sinister at all. I will try to find more info on this, because everybody knows the ”Max Winkler” story with his ”suitcase in Berlin”. It could all contain some code, of course.
        Has anyone ever found out where the fotos are they mention in that concocted newsreel? Others even double the number to 22,000. These must be priceless!

        All the best, Karl

  24. Pedro Marcos on May 8, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    I am probably repeating a previous comment that has yet to be posted. Please delete if it is so.

    1st – I see no reason for including a flack tower in the news reel. Even so, that will date the “documentary” from 1942: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flak_tower;

    2nd – I see no reason for including a monumental facade on the newsreeel;

    3rd – The showing of the plans for a Type XXVI on a news reel makes no sense whatsoeverm, as it is the most advanced sub type being developed, and not built, only sections for 4 U-boats being completed before the war ended. If true, that would make the newsreel from late 1944 – early 1945;

    4th – What is the purpose of including a photo of the ship with a note saying it was from someone else collection?

    I will say that this newsreel mixes authentic photos with photos from somewhere else, specially the caves and glaciars. Thus a fake.

    That being said, I find plausible the existence of such a base, if one considers the argentine part of the equation.

    • Jay on May 8, 2011 at 2:11 pm

      Right many times.

      I noticed that big Berlin flack tower too–watched a whole Discovery Channel show on excavating various things the Nazis had built in and under Berlin, remember that tower in particular–and thought why am looking at this in a film ostensibly about Antarctica.

      I don’t read German, so could not be sure there was no connection being made with something that had supposedly been built in Antarctica, but all seemed tenuous.

  25. SpiritSplice on May 8, 2011 at 11:44 am

    What I find interesting is the photos where VERY light clothing is being worn. This corroborates other evidence (such as Google Earth) that the temperature is not what we have been told, at least in some parts of Antarctica.

  26. Jon on May 8, 2011 at 10:05 am

    First off, I would like to see confirmation of the film stock and tests which prove its age and authenticity. All this could easily have been faked from some old photos and bits of other, unrelated, films. It is well known that intelligence agencies maintain supplies of old film and paper stock to be able to fake “evidence” from earlier times. Given that the Nazi International would have connections to the vast resources of IG Farben and related companies, it would be easy to provide materials for such fakery.

    There is no actual moving footage of Antarctica or any activities of the Expedition there, and much of the rest of the moving images are generic military activity shots, with no actual point of geographical reference. The few discernible shots of Antarctica are very poor stills, and the cave shots, being all interior shots with no external point of reference, could be from many places around the world. At least one of them looked fake to me (like a matte painting). Google Goggles might be able to help with authentication there.

    This could easily be dummied up propaganda footage made during those times to boost German morale, or it could be a clever fake to provide disinformation today.

    I agree that the most interesting things are the construction diagrams and stills of actual buildings, obviously in a climate such as Europe (pine trees and such). This is not surprising since Germany was a world leader in thin-shell concrete construction, and created advanced building techniques for such things. (I learned a bit about this in my research on concrete monolithic domes.)

    The devices pictured looked more like Van de Graf generators to me, although they could have been some form of Tesla coil with an unusual covering. They are certainly very interesting, as those were sources of voltage for a lot of the early atom-smashing experiments around the world.

    All this skepticism from me, and I actually believe they did have at least one advanced base there… the documentable part of the US expedition there in 1947 weighs heavily in that direction. (Unless that was a propaganda ploy as well.)

    More interesting pieces, no doubt.

    Great job Dr. Farrell, thank you! Anyway, there is no place for doubt, that something has been constructed in Antarctica, otherwise, why Americans would bother themselves to organize the notorious expedition “High Jump”, followed by “suicide” of Forester, and finally the atom bombing (twice) somewhen after 1952? It was obvious that there was something there, plus the unstoppable activity of more recent times including the Falkland crises and the launch of numerous satellites on orbit over the frozen continent. We could only imagine what a flock of submarine the Fleet of US has been maintaining near by, all of those years…

    Wow…what a find.

    The post under the video states, “I found this 16mm old film at a anticshop in Denmark.” I wonder what else may be out there such as this with important info yet to be discovered of the true extent of Nazi technological advances.

    Thise caves depicted are massive. The documents need to be enlarged and carefully translated. I suspect they may be very revealing.

    This is neat stuff!
