As promised, I will spend the next few posts (the next 4, to be exact) showing how it is not possible to dismiss completely the existence of an advanced scientific research center of the III Reich in the Antarctica. And that, existing such a facility, it could have been active long after the end of World War 2.
The reason for this exposition is: in the upcoming Future Man novel, this advanced research center is the key to unlocking ‘the future’ once promised to us. Much like it happened in the end of WW2 (1945), with both Americans and Soviets trying to get their hands on the best minds from III Reich Germany and, with their help, starting their space programs.
I’d like to make it abundantly clear that I do not have any sympathy for the ideologies of the III Reich. Quite the opposite, as it will become obvious in the first 100 pages of the novel.
Although the documents mentioned below will probably mean very little to the ‘uninitiated’, perhaps the first thing you should know about them is that they’re considered of extreme importance, the ‘smoking guns’ in this matter. Still, and although they’re often mentioned, they were never actually shown and the information usually arrives via second hand testimonials. Here, for the first time, you will have access to these documents and see what they actually look like, in real life. And, with it, the chance to make your own mind, based on what you see.
This exposition will include 4 posts on this site, every Thursday, on the following dates.

- Final conclusions
Credit for this work should go to historical researcher Rainer Daehnhardt and the documentation he gathered in 30 years of research, culminating with the recognition of his efforts by Cambridge, considering him one of the top scientists of 2005. My contribution is merely expanding on his findings, with knowledge I’ve acquired over the years.
Along with showing never-published-before documentation, we’re also going to briefly bring in a couple of firsthand testimonials from credible sources but, of course, since these are not verifiable (by you), it’s up to the reader to choose to believe in them or not. These will be few and far apart and although they are important while trying to fill-in-the-blanks, they are not critical to the main claim.
The main claim of this study, very conservatively put, is: “It’s impossible to dismiss completely the hypothesis of the existence of an advanced scientific research center of the III Reich in the Antarctica and that, existing such a facility, it could have been active long after the end of World War 2.”
