Die Glocke (“The Bell”) was a purported top secret Nazi scientific technological device (Wunderwaffe). First described by Polish journalist and author Igor Witkowski in his 2000 book Prawda o Wunderwaffe (Truth about Wunderwaffe), it was later popularized by military journalist and author Nick Cook as well as by writers such as Joseph P. Farrell (fr) and others who associate it with Nazi occultism and antigravity or free energy research.
Die Glocke has become a popular subject of speculation and a following similar to science fiction fandom exists around it and other alleged Nazi “miracle weapons”. Unfortunately for these followers, there is not a shred of evidence that such a device was ever proposed, let alone developed or deployed. In short, it has never existed. Consequently, the following rumors about this device are fairy tales – plain and simple.
Reportedly this project’s code name was Chronos and it was assigned the highest security category. It was said to resemble a giant metallic bell, approximately 2.7m wide and 4m high.
It was composed of an unknown metal and based out of Der Riese, a facility near the Wenceslaus mine in Poland, near the Czech border. The Bell contained two counter-rotating cylinders said to contain a metallic liquid called Zerum-525.
Through an unknown process, when activated, The Bell would emit an effect zone of approximately 200 meters. Within this zone, crystals would form in animal tissue; blood would coagulate and separate, while plants would rapidly decompose.
Reportedly, many of the original scientists died horribly during the initial tests. The weapon was also able to rise off the ground and hover in the air and was meant to be launched over the Northern Hemisphere, detonating in the jet stream releasing its deadly radioisotopes causing the death of millions.
The only physical trace of the project is the ruins of a concrete framework, called “The Henge,” about 3 km from the main complex of Der Riese, that may (most likely not) have been a test rig for anti-gravity and propulsion experiments with The Bell.
