"Ahnenerbe": a little-known Nazi expedition to the Amazon

18

It is well known that for the Nazis one of the bases of their propaganda was the basis of the so-called "Aryan race". In order to drive ideas of exclusivity and exclusivity into the heads of ordinary Germans, a variety of methods were used. At the same time, those surrounded by Hitler were not alien to occult ideas. They also tried to bring some semblance of a scientific basis under them, for which they created a separate organ - "Ahnenerbe" (literally - "heritage of ancestors").


This is the structure that was designed to deal with history Germanic civilization. She was engaged in a very peculiar way.

Employees of "Ahnenerbe" tried to implement the most incredible projects, including the search for ancient artifacts. Over time, the structure became larger and larger, requiring more and more funding. At the final stage of World War II, Ahnenerbe turned into a gigantic bureaucratic apparatus. The tasks of this body even began to include the creation of “weapons retaliation. "

Over the 10 years of the organization's existence, she has equipped expeditions to various parts of the world. The expedition of the Ahnenerbe detachments to Tibet is heard. But the organization had other directions and projects to study.

One of these projects concerned the study of South America. In 1939 and 1942, expeditions were to go to Bolivia and Paraguay. But major "sorties" did not take place. But among the German archives there is information about the Nazis visiting the forests of the Amazon. This is an extremely little known expedition. What were the Nazi "scientists" looking for there, why did they go across the Atlantic?

      There is no detailed information about this expedition.
      But it is clear that this was scientific intelligence, in one of the richest regions in the world.
      The Germans viewed the Amazon jungle and Siberia as the two most promising areas of the earth in terms of resources. hi

        They staked out an area of ​​600 sq. Km. (more France), discovered the Schirmacher oasis.

        Well, they equipped a secret submarine base, where can we go without it? wink
        The Grail is still kept there ...

    The search for knowledge of antediluvian civilization (Atlantis) ... Many do not believe in it, they say - conspiracy theories ... Hitler climbed half of the World. Jacques If Cousteau - all oceans. Roerich - Tibet ...

      they were looking there for the same thing as the British.
      big cities with white people (though already abandoned).
      according to legends, they were there.
      well and besides that, the mummies of white people that date back to BC. there is no shortage.
      even in mountainous Peru.

        Because the Nazis left only Germans in the design bureaus. And there was no one to artificially sabotage and flush new breakthrough developments, inconvenient for enemies, down the toilet.
        That's the whole secret.

        However, Russian scientific scientists are not bastards either. 94 years ago, the Soviet biologist Ilya Ivanov, on instructions from the party and government, went to Africa to breed a monkey with a man in order to develop a new species of homo soveticus.

        “I dare to contact you with a proposal. I learned from the newspapers that you have attempted the artificial insemination of monkeys with human sperm, but the experiments have failed. This problem has interested me for a long time. My request: take me as an experiment.
        I beg you, do not refuse me. I will happily submit to all experience requirements. I am confident in the possibility of fertilization.
        As a last resort, if you refuse, I ask you to write me the address of one of the foreign scientists-zoologists, ”biologist Ilya Ivanov received such a letter from a resident of Leningrad in 1928.
        This message is not the only one of its kind: after learning that the scientist was trying to cross a man with a monkey, women from all over the Soviet Union wanted to participate in an unprecedented experiment.

    In vain I looked. Except for the picture of the Amazon, nothing worthwhile. No answers, not even interesting questions. You don't have to watch the video.

    It is good that some of the German elite at that time had bears running around with drums in their skulls.

    Relations with South Africa were forging. It was not for nothing that many ended up there, especially in Paraguay.

    Full bullshit. Trying to get a cheap sensation on your knee.
    There is a wealth of information about the expedition of the German geographer, writer and film producer Otto Schulz-Kampfenkel, which was organized in 1935, the geographer's book Rätsel der Urwaldhölle (Riddles of Hell in the Jungle) and the film of the same name, shot by him. Ahnenerbe had nothing to do with this expedition. The expedition was of a political nature and was supposed to bring Brazil and Germany closer together.

    Often they add their own fantasies to Hitler's silly fantasies, making Hitler ubiquitous. And Tibet, and Antarctica, and the Amazon selva.
