Tag der Toten is in Antarctica?

We’ve all heard tales of Nazis exploring the southern extremities of the globe. They made a territorial claim on an area of Antarctica between 20°E and 10°W in Queen Maud Land, naming it Neuschwabenland (New Swabia) and setting up several sciencific stations in early 1939. Numerous alleged experiments with strange technologies were being performed here, most notably in a fortress that was named 'Base 211', located under the frozen Muhlig-Hoffman mountains.

The Nazi Antarctic Fortress: Base 211 And Operation Highjump ...

Many authors propose that in 1947 Admiral Byrd, one of the most famous American polar explorers, searched for secret Nazi bases. It is proposed that the Operation Highjump, when Admiral Byrd had at his disposal the largest armada ever sent to Antarctica, was established to investigate a Nazi presence. Operation Highjump included 13 ships, aircraft escort, aircraft carrier, a submarine, two destroyers and a total of 4,700 men with full battle gear in what was officially called an ordinary ‘training exercise.’ However, some believe that Operation Highjump was anything but a training mission. In a later interview with Byrd, he was supposed to confirm this by telling that the Nazi's were developing Vril flying saucer-shaped craft there, and to prevent a new war the United States had to intervent. But the secret Nazi stronghold didn't merely continue the development of highly technological advanced wünderwaffe, it is supposed there was another reason for their residence in the deep south. Here follows an excerpt from Admiral Byrd from february, 1947:


"We are crossing over the small mountain range and still proceeding northward as best as can be ascertained. Beyond the mountain range is what appears to be a valley with a small river or stream running through the center portion. There should be no green valley below! Something is definitely wrong and abnormal here! We should be over Ice and Snow! To the portside are great forests growing on the mountain slopes. Our navigation Instruments are still spinning, the gyroscope is oscillating back and forth!"

What did they stumble upon? Conspiracy folks claim that there is an access point to Hollow Earth located at Antarctica, as well as underground bases and pyramids believed to be extraterrestrial in origin, and that the world governments are keeping this as a secret. The Nazi's interest in Antarctica is connected with their belief that it is the lost Aryan homeland of Thule, Atlantis or Hyperborea, which is possibly still inhabited by their extraterrestial ancestors. Now it was obvious for them that no society could live in such a bare, cold environment. This is why the Nazi's searched underground, discovering tunnels volcanically heatened and allowing foreign plant species to grow. These caverns led deep under a frozen lake which would later be known as Lake Vostok, and it was the entrance to a whole different world, on within ours: Hollow Earth, Agartha. The Nazi's didn't only enter this subterranean domain, but they also made a complete map of the hemispheres of the inner realm of Agartha!


Using mythical artifacts found in this hidden realm, they developed even more sophisticated technology. Interesting enough, it has also believed that an extensive cloning project was being practiced there far away in the frozen wastelands. In 1957, the territory of New Swabia was divided between several nations. The Soviet Union claimed the area of Lake Vostok.


I won't pull any punches: What if Call of the Dead and Tag der Toten take place at Lake Vostok? Firstly, the environment of the 'Siberian Facility' simply doesn't correspond with the actual Tunguska area. The Tunguska river lays in the taiga, a boreal forest with mainly coniferous trees. The area is also generally flat, in opposition with the mountain range we see in Tag. Also while it can get extremely cold in Siberia, such large chunks of floating ice is really something only seen in the far North...or South. Lastly, we see a lake as far as the eye shows. The only lake in the Tunguska area is Lake Cheko, which is approximately merely 500 by 300 meters.

As Antarctica has a gateway to Agartha, it would explain the presence of such a mythical artifact like the Vril Device. The Siberian Outpost basically features a secret Nazi base including a cloning facility, similar to Base 211. The presence of the Soviets could be explained by the fact that the USSR claimed the territory of Lake Vostok after 1957. Now there are also quite some interesting connections between CotD (Lake Vostok) and Shangri-La (Hollow Earth). Firstly, let's note that Ultimis went to Shangri-La via the Siberian Outpost. Secondly, we have George's assistant Sally suddenly finding herself in Shangri La. It would also explain why George is different than regular zombies, as he goes into the lake to heal every time, he might actually go to Agartha to use pure Vril energy to heal. The proposed underground pyramids might actually be those from Shangri-La. And the biggest mystery, of course: The Secret. Both the Siberian Facility and Shangri-La seem to be located on or near Mars. There clearly is a connection between the two locations.

Now why would it be called 'Siberian Outpost' while it might be located on Antarctica? Does the Timeline lie? Is the name a distraction?


Sorry for this quick and messy end conclusion, I have little time. But feel free to share your opinions on this idea.

With Shangri-La being a time-traveling, and seemingly a location-travelling temple, and the new connection between Shang and the Siberian Facility, despite the name, the Siberian Facility can be anywhere and everywhere. Spending part-time in Antarctica would be a great explanation for the icy shore.


Also, love the Admiral Byrd connection.

I agree with Rad. If Shangri La, Buried, and Tag der Toten have taught us anything, then the Siberian Base could be located in Siberia and Antarctica. It is like a Geological Schrödinger’s cat, the base is there and not there at the same time.  And, it is most definitely because of the Hollow Earth. You are right on the money.


It could function similar to the Hollow Earth in Monsterverse series. This version of the Hollow Earth has subterranean entryways and tunnels creating a highway that connects various points around the globe. The series stays close to the classical depiction of the conspiracy theory. In Zombies, the highway may or may not be a physical connection.  I would also bet it has to do with leylines as we have discussed before.


It is very strange that we haven’t gotten anything related to Antarctica in the story by now. I am also shocked that Admiral Byrd hasn’t been mentioned especially in Classified or Alpha Omega. Finger’s crossed it is because they are saving it for a future plotline.


I may be misremembering, but Tag takes place on the coastline of Russia, right? The connection to Tunguska is because the Soviets moved the materials to Tag.
