NEWLY INVESTIGATED SECRETS HELP UNCOVER WHAT HITLER LEFT BEHIND "SECRET NAZI RUINS" PREMIERING SEPTEMBER 5 ON SCIENCE CHANNEL
From tunnels to towers, artillery sites, resistance nests and communication centers, Nazi Germany left their footprint throughout the world. To this day, silent remains still exist, sentinels guarding clues about plots that Hitler was unable to carry out. A new Science Channel series digs up mysteries from some of the most covert projects as experts dissect and reveal the purpose of these structures, their makeup, and technical design. SECRET NAZI RUINS premieres Thursday, September 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
To this day, the remains of Nazi Bases lie waiting to reveal their truth about Hitler's tactics and dreams. One of the sites , recently excavated and investigated with the help of newly revealed documents are the Maisy Batteries, a huge group of artillery batteries built by the Nazi's that until recently were completely lost to history. What clues can be gleaned from the structures found at this secret Nazi base and how does the bunker's current state hint at an Allied cover up?
Among other sites examined are Dag Bromberg, a colossal base hidden in a forest of Poland; Bergkristal, a bunker and network of tunnels in the heart of Austria with mysterious levels of radiation; an enigmatic mansion on a remote beach in the Canary Islands, with design elements that defy its stated residential purpose; and Kraftwerk Nord West in northern France, one of the largest Nazi bunkers ever constructed.
SECRET NAZI RUINS is produced by Go Button Media for Science Channel. Daniel Oron and Natasha Ryan are executive producers for Go Button. Executive Producer for Science Channel is Neil Laird.
