National Socialist Germany's nuclear weapons program
That National Socialist Germany had a nuclear weapons program is accepted by conventional history but it is described as unsuccessful.
Several revisionist books have argued that National Socialist Germany actually succeeded in developing and testing the prototypes of a small nuclear device as well as a delivery system, the long-range A9/A10 missile whose characteristics and capabilities were comparable to the later U.S. Titan II. Tests are stated to have occurred on the island of Rügen in the Baltic Sea and in Ohrdruf in Thuringia. The first is stated to have occurred on October 12, 1944.
Several hundred people (mostly from a nearby concentration camp) who were used as support personnel are reported to have been killed by one of the tests. This has been argued to have caused those involved in these tests to not speak openly about their work due to fear of being accused of war crimes.
To this day, there is a cloak of secrecy over National Socialist Germany’s nuclear weapons program.

The effects were tragic. The trees around had been turned to carbon. No leaves. Nothing alive. There were some animals - sheep - in the area and they too had been burnt to cinders.
On March 4, 1945, Clare Werner was standing on a hillside in Thuringian, Germany. Not too far away was the military training base near the town of Ohrdruf. Unexpectedly there was a flash of light. "I suddenly saw something," she said, " ... it was as bright as hundreds of bolts of lightning, red on the inside and yellow on the outside, so bright you could've read the newspaper. It all happened so quickly, and then we couldn't see anything at all. We just noticed there was a powerful wind...—from Hitler's Bombe by Rainer Karlsch
