The Flytrap German Saucer
Top Secret Nazi Scientific Technological Device

"Der Riese", ("The Giant" in English), is located in the"Gory Sowie" or Owl Mountains of modern-day Poland.

It consisted of seven underground complexes which concerned themselves with the mining, refining, research and development of uranium both for energy producing machines and weapons of war.

The tunnels of the larger complexes are almost two miles in length. Courtesy of Robert Lesniakiewicz. Mr.Lesniakiewicz is a Polish engineer and a member of the research group responsible for opening, exploring and mapping of "Der Riese".

A mountain fortress or "Alpenfestung" was to be set up in the German held areas of Northern Italy, Austria and Germany in roughly the areas in which these countries converged with each other and Switzerland.

A fortress was to be set up in the Harz Mountains of Thruingia including several large underground complexes. This would extend from Nordhausen in the north down through Kahla and into the Jonas Valley.

Another similar fortress complex was scheduled for the Owl Mountains separating Poland from Czechoslovakia including "Der Riese" mentioned earlier.

Another fortress was to be set up in the Black Forest of Southern Germany. Other minor islands of resistance were to be set up in Norway, the Bohemian forest and the Bavarian forest.

Die Glocke (German for "The Bell") is the name of a purported top secret Nazi scientific technological device.

The only source for this is the books of Polish aerospace defence journalist and military historian Igor Witkowski, which claims it to be a secret weapon, or Wunderwaffe.

The topic has been popularized by military journalist and author Nick Cook as well as by conspiracy theory writers such as Joseph P. Farrell.

Farrell and others associate it with Nazi occultism and antigravity or free energy research.

However, other researchers such as aerospace expert David Myhra view it merely as a rumor of a peculiar rocket design without a mystical background akin to the V-2 rocket program.

The device was first claimed to exist by Igor Witkowski, in his Polish language book Prawda O Wunderwaffe (The Truth About The Wonder Weapon), in which he refers to it as "The Nazi-Bell".

Little was known or reported on regarding the device until it was popularized in the English-speaking Western world by journalist, author, and former British aviation editor for Jane's Information Group's, Nick Cook, in his book The Hunt for Zero Point. 

The Bell UFO was among the first flying objects to be connected with the Nazis. It apparently had occult markings on it and it was also rumoured to have been very similar to a German Document about a vertical take off aircraft.

The Bell crashed in Pennsylvania in the 50's. The same month, German engineer Rudolf Schriever gave an interview to German news magazine Der Spiegel in which he claimed that he had designed a craft powered by a circular plane of rotating turbine blades 49 ft (15 m) in diameter.

He said that the project had been developed by him and his team at BMW's Prague works until April 1945, when he fled Czechoslovakia. His designs for the disk and a model were stolen from his workshop in Bremerhaven-Lehe in 1948 and he was convinced that Czech agents had built his craft for "a foreign power".

In a separate interview with Der Spiegel in October 1952 he said that the plans were stolen from a farm he was hiding in near Regen on May 14th, 1945.

Die Glocke (German for "The Bell") is a purported top secret Nazi scientific technological device, secret weapon, or Wunderwaffe. First described by Polish journalist Igor Witkowski, it was later popularized by military journalist and author Nick Cook as well as by conspiracy theory writers such as Joseph P. Farrell.

Farrell and others associate it with Nazi occultism and antigravity or free energy research.

In 1953, when Avro Canada announced that it was developing the VZ-9-AV Avrocar, a circular jet aircraft with an estimated speed of 1,500 mph (2,400 km/h), German engineer Georg Klein claimed that such designs had been developed during the Third Reich.

Klein identified two types of supposed German flying disks:
  • A non-rotating disk developed at Wrocław by V-2 rocket engineer Richard Miethe, which was captured by the Soviets, while Miethe fled to the US via France, and ended up working for Avro.
  • A disk developed by Rudolf Schriever and Klaus Habermohl at Prague, which consisted of a ring of moving turbine blades around a fixed cockpit.

    Klein claimed that he had witnessed this craft's first manned flight on 14 February 1945, when it managed to climb to 12,400 m (40,700 ft) in 3 minutes and attained a speed of 2,200 km/h (1,400 mph) in level flight.

The Henge: In Search of The Nazi Bell

Deep in the Wenceslas Mines near Ludwikowice in Poland, Nazi SS scientists reportedly worked on an anti-gravity machine called the ‘Bell’ - a glowing, rotating contraption that looked like a flying saucer and was used in conjunction with an above ground structure known as the ‘Henge’ which still stands today as an enigmatic structure that comprises of thick, reinforced pillars, designed to withstand extreme forces.

Artists David Bickerstaff and Lukasz Szalankiewicz travel to the site of the ‘Henge’ in Poland to document its structure and explore the hidden secrets of the Nazi Bell buried in the abandoned mines below.

Nazi UFO Conspiracy

An Italian scientist and a former Italian Minister of National Economy under the Mussolini regime, claimed that "types of flying discs were designed and studied in Germany and Italy as early as 1942". It was also expressed that "some great power is launching discs to study them".

Interest grew, and Witkowski's book was translated into English in 2003 by Bruce Wenham as The Truth about the Wunderwaffe.

Further speculation about the device has appeared in books by the American fringe authors Joseph P. Farrell, Jim Marrs, and Henry Stevens.

In a newspaper interview given in the mid-1950s, German engineer George Klein stated that he worked on a flying saucer device prototype that achieved a speed of 1,300 miles per hour in 1945.

He also said that the Nazi government destroyed all traces of the project to keep the research out of the hands of advancing Soviets. "The Bell" has become a "popular subject of speculation", according to a National Geographic article.

Thus, a following akin to science fiction fandom exists around it and other obscure real or alleged Nazi “miracle weapons” of Wunderwaffen.

While the purpose of The Bell is unknown, there is a wide range of speculation from anti-gravity to time travel.

Jan Van Helsing claims in his book Secret Societies that, in a meeting that was attended by the members of various secret orders (Vril Gesellschaft, Thule Society, SS elite of Black Sun) and two mediums, technical data for the construction of a flying machine was gathered along with the messages that were said to have come from the solar system Aldebaran.

One of Cook's scientist contacts in The Hunt for Zero Point, was a "Dr. Dan Marckus". (Cook states in his book that he has "blurred" Marckus' name and that he is "an eminent scientist attached to the physics department of one of Britain's best-known universities".)

Dr. Marckus claimed that The Bell was a torsion field generator and that the SS scientists were attempting to build some sort of time machine with it.

In 2006 Joseph P. Farrell commented in his book, SS Brotherhood of the Bell, "a very odd object that looks like a large concrete henge, self-evidently a test rig of some sort."

Farrell goes on to state: Witkowski also provided this author with more information that was not available when his book was published.

Rainer Karlsch, a German historian who recently published a book in Germany on Hitler's nuclear program, also 'Mentioned in his book that a team of physicists from a German university (in Giessen has carried out a lot of research in Ludwikowice, namely in (the Henge).

The result is such that there are isotopes in the construction (in the reinforcement), which can only be the result of irradiation by a strong beam of neutrons, thus that there must have been some kind of device accelerating ions, rather heavy ones.
"The Henge" may have once served as test rig for an experiment in "anti-gravity propulsion" generated with Die Glocke.

Others, however, dismiss the derelict structure as simply being a conventional industrial cooling tower. 

It could be calculated what was the intensity of the radiation in 1945 and generally it was very high.

"In other words, whatever had been tested at the Henge - and there is every indication that it was the Bell - it not only required a sturdy structure to keep it down but also it gave off strong, heavy, radiation."
