Nazi Weirdness, A Collection of Images

The Nazi era is an infinite source of weird stories, bizarre relics, secret inventions and over-the-top conspiracy theories. I don’t know why. Perhaps this is a way of dealing with the horror of Nazi crimes. There are stories about Hitler’s corpse, Hitler’s survival and escape, secret nazi camps on the Antarctic, strange weapons etc. Below are a few of the most bizarre.

All conspiracy theories are good fun, but this is one of the best. The Nazi UFO theory argues that the Nazis successfully attempted to develop advanced air and spacecraft prior to and during World War II, and that these vehicles survived the war in secret underground bases in Antarctica, South America or the United States, along with their creators. After all, they did manage to produce rockets. Here’s a so-called photograph:

Or maybe the Nazis used their UFOs to escape to the moon instead. Here’s “evidence” of a Nazi moon station:

There’s even a popular movie about it which some call fiction:

iron sky

Or was it Mars rather than the moon? Mars rover Curiosity has apparently found a Nazi helmet on Mars:

But let’s return back to earth, literally and figuratively. How about the Nazi motorcycle tank?

Weird you say? I agree, it doesn’t look quite real. But this one does:

And how about Nazi ice-cream? Strange indeed but could be tasty, at least for those without a sense of history:

    hmm wouldn’t use “Nazi” as general term for Germany at that time (i.e. certainly not all German soldiers were Nazis). And the first photo of a “motorcycle tank” dates back to WW I and the “Kaiserreich” (easily to recognize by the form of the iron cross symbol used and the uniform of the soldier in the “tank”) – call me a “pedant” ;-) ).
