Secret Nazi bunker discovered in Argentinian jungle built ‘halfway through the war’ as a getaway for Third Reich leaders

 

It has long been known that hundreds of officials from the Third Reich fled to South America after 1945 – but the series of “mysterious buildings” in the Parque Teyú Cuare nature reserve suggest a level of pre-planning never before realised.

The team led by the University of Buenos Aires’ Daniel Schavelzon found Nazi symbols, including a swastika, etched into the walls. They also found several German coins dating from 1938 to 1944, and some porcelain marked “Made in Germany”.
