Artist Explores Myths of Nazi UFO Technology
By David Gordon Smith in Berlin
One of the strands that feeds into ufologists' fertile imaginations is a peculiar structure located outside the village of Nowa Ruba in Poland's Owl Mountains, a part of the country which belonged to Germany up until 1945. The mysterious construction consists of a dozen concrete pillars arranged in a circle with a ring around the top. No one has ever been able to come up with a definitive explanation of what the Nazis used it for -- prompting ufologists to speculate it was used in the alleged Haunebu project.
I’m probably being paranoid here, and I can’t imagine the German authorities would allow anything which might give succour to Revisionist historians, particularly at such a sensitive location. Czerepok says he isn’t concerned about neo-Nazis being attracted to the exhibition: “I’m not trying to get their special attention”, he says. But I worry that he may get it anyway.
