Title: * WWII History ~ The Great Patents Heist
Post by: Sue on August 15, 2010, 04:23:59 PM
One of the greatest ripoffs of all time was
the theft of German patents after World War II


(http://greyfalcon.us/picturesaaa/al307.gif)

It is quite acceptable to American pride to acknowledge that immigrants have contributed to our prosperity and greatness. It's a little harder to swallow that a good deal of our scientific lead and prosperity - despite the ever-increasing burdens of non-skilled illegal immigrants and unproductive home-growns - has come from simply seizing German patents and inventions after World War I [the most prominent war booty which Woodrow Wilson seized in 1917 was the patent on aspirin, that "miracle drug"] and far more so after World War II.

There are those who claim the key to America's felicity has been its Jewish citizens. After all, this is now a "service economy" of stockbrokers and financial and entertainment services. Could America dispense with actually manufacturing or growing anything, and instead focus on the essentials like Broadway shows, Hollywood sitcoms and currency speculation?

The message of Bernt Engelmann's 1974 Deutschland ohne Juden, published in English by Bantam Books, New York in 1984 as Germany Without Jews, is clear: You Germans were mediocre until we Jews came, and now that we're gone, you have sunk back into mediocrity.

Engelmann cites endless lists of great Jewish MDs of German or Austrian domicile, several of whom, such as bacteriologists Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915) and Robert Koch (1843-1910), won the Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology (Ehrlich, 1908; Koch, 1905). Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), of dubious credentials, is one of Engelmann's prize examples.

Engelmann also slays entire forests with pages of printed paeans to forgotten Jewish playwrights, songsters, operetta producers, critics, publishers etc. How could one forget the immortal Meyerbeer? To the wary eye, it smacks of ethnic self-congratulation. One gifted Jew writes a piece, another publishes it, yet another reviews it favourably, a fourth sits at the box office counting out his money and a fifth takes his 10 percent as agent - an unconvincing proof that the nation of Mozart, Bach and Beethoven needed music lessons.

Gottlieb Daimler (1834-1900) and Karl Benz (1844-1929) invented the modern gasoline engine in 1878-1887. Other Germans took the lead in 19th-century chemistry and created the first contact lens (in the 1880s), X-rays (Wilhelm Röntgen in 1895), quantum physics (discovered in 1900 by Max Planck, 1858-1947), aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) and last (and least), saccharin in 1913. As for previous centuries, the Germans got no credit for inventing the croissant or "Kipferl," as the Germans call it, in Vienna to celebrate defeating the Turks in 1683; one notes the Turkish religious logo, the crescent (a baked good then snatched up by the French as the "croissant"). Equally, they receive zero credit for baking the first quiche, which in Lorraine and Rhinelander dialects ("Kisch") simply means "kitchen leftovers baked into a pie."

Baked goods aside, the facts reveal that the most creative period in world history may have been Germany between 1932 and 1945, and that much of America's scientific lead came from looting German patents by the ton, both in World War I and far more so after World War II.

And because Germany was so devastated after World War II, there has been a brain drain ever since of the top young German scientists - to Massachusetts and California for computers and genetics and to greater Los Angeles, Houston and Cape Canaveral for aerospace. As one German scientist remarked: "Since the war, we have not had the financing capabilities for basic research for the long-term future. That kind of serious money only the Americans have. In Germany, and in Japan, also, we do applied and clinical research for immediate applications. But to be on the cutting edge, the money and the positions are now in America and we have to go there. [1]

An astounding admission of the stripping of German inventiveness after the war came in an October 1946 article by C. Lester Walker in Harper's magazine. Entitled "Secrets by the Thousands,"  it presents some problems for the Bernt Engelmanns of this world who imply that German science in the 1932-45 period would have been "nothing without the Jews."

     In every collection of Harper's - even that held in a prestigious university research
     library - the October 1946 issue is missing. A coincidence?

     Fortunately this document exists in cyber-space... (http://greyfalcon.us/restored/October1.htm)

In fact, the article suggests in deadly seriousness that German Chancellor Adolf Hitler had been right, from his point of view, to prolong the war to the last gasp. According to the deputy commanding general of Army Air Forces Intelligence, Air Technical Service Command, in a speech to the American Society of Aeronautical Engineers:

The Germans were preparing rocket surprises for the whole world in general and England in particular which would have, it is believed, changed the course of the war if the invasion had been postponed for so short a time as half a year.

Even without its brilliant Jewish minority, the Germans' "V-2 rocket which bombed London was just a toy compared to what the Germans had up their sleeve." They had 138 types of guided missiles in various stages of production, (http://greyfalcon.us/restored/History%20of%20German%20Rocketry.htm) using every kind of remote control device or fuse: radio, radar, wire-guided, continuous wave, acoustics, infrared, light beams and magnetism. And for power the Germans were years ahead in jet propulsion at both subsonic and supersonic speeds - even creating a "jet helicopter" wherein tiny jets spun the helicopter blade tips at blinding speeds.

Just as the war was ending, and President Franklin Roosevelt was ordering both Gens. George Patton and Dwight David Eisenhower to pull back and let "Uncle Joe" (Josef Stalin) have Berlin and Eastern Europe, the Germans had been readying their giant A-4 rocket for production. Forty-six feet in length, it weighed over 24,000 pounds and could travel 230 miles - rising 60 miles over the earth to a blistering top speed of 3,375 miles per hour. Its secret was a rocket motor running on liquid nitrogen and alcohol. It was either radar controlled or self-guided by a gyroscope. Since it flew faster than the speed of sound (by many times), it could not be heard before it struck.

Another rocket in the works was the A-9, still bigger at 29,000 pounds and equipped with wings. It had a range of 3,000 miles. Manufactured at Peenemünde, (http://greyfalcon.us/Peenem%C3%BCnde.htm) it arced into the sky at an incredible 5,870 miles per hour.

(http://greyfalcon.us/pictures/autobahn.jpg)

But most Americans know about German World War II rockets. A few even know that in addition to the car engine the Germans also invented the jet and perfected the superhighway or Autobahn (the three most important inventions binding this vast country. Virtually no one knows that in Wright-Patterson Field in Ohio, in the Library of Congress and in the Department of Commerce in Washington, a "mother lode" of 1,500 tons of German patents and research papers were being mined furiously after the war. One gloating Washington bureaucrat called it "the greatest single source of this type of material in the world, the first orderly exploitation of an entire country's brain power."

Fortunately, it was for the benefit of the United States, which, having thwarted Hitler's crusade against the Soviet Union, had to take up the same gauntlet against a communism spread worldwide by the late 1940s.

The genesis of the project to grab German secrets was in 1944, when, amazed by German technology in everything from rockets and jets to Tiger tanks, a Joint Intelligence Objectives committee was set up to confiscate German inventions the instant they were obtained, even before the surrender, for use against Japan.

Even before reaching the German border, fascinating discoveries began to be made, including one with which every American is familiar: audio tape. The 1946 Harper's article shows the head of the Technical Industrial Intelligence Branch, in quaint excitement:

"...[p]ulling some brown, papery-looking ribbon off a spool. It was a quarter-inch wide, with a dull side and a shiny side. "That's Magnetophone tape," he said. [2] "It's plastic, metallized on one side with ferrous oxide. In Germany, that supplanted phonograph recordings. A day's radio program can be magnetized on one reel. [Then] you can demagnetize it, wipe it off, and put on a new program at any time. No needle, no noise or record wear. An hour-long reel costs 50 cents."

A Short History of Recording and Its Effects Upon Music by Michael Chanan [3] points out that even in the late 1920s, before the "12 darkest years of German history," [4] one Fritz Pfleumer had developed a plastic recording tape. It was launched commercially by BASF [5] in 1934. The idea was based on the film strip, and its original application was for dictation in an office environment. In Britain, a project funded by the great radio genius Guglielmo Marconi was attempting the same thing. (On D-Day, the Americans played audio tapes of combat loudly at various locations to try to throw off the German defenders.)

However, the great leap forward came when one A. M. Poniatoff, president of a small California company called Ampex (a trade name still familiar to the older generation), then wearing a U.S. Army uniform, helped seize German-held Radio Luxembourg in late 1944. Instantly grasping the gold mine in profits and quality which the Magnetophone tape represented, Poniatoff had the 3M Company rush the new tape into American production, and it swept the Los Angeles entertainment industry.

Its major breakthrough came in 1947 when Bing Crosby first used it to record his network shows. The crooner not only preferred the Magnetophone sound but invested heavily in Ampex. Later, movie soundtracks went onto audio tape as well, improving mixing and dubbing efficiency as well, and avoiding the infuriating mishap where a successfully shot movie scene had to be retaken due to sound defects. Ampex later went on to introduce the first videotape recorders in 1956 (all now but a memory, sacrificed on the altar of free trade with Japan).

The list goes on and on: synthetic mica, which increased American cold steel production by 1,000 percent; "the secrets for 50,000 dyes, many of [which] are faster and better than ours, colors we were never able to make"; milk, butter and bread preservation without chemicals; and refrigeration and air-conditioning for German U-boats so efficient that their subs could cruise from the Atlantic to the Pacific, fight there for two months and return to Germany without having to take on fresh water for the crew. In addition, there was the pilot ejector seat, the infrared rifle scope, and even the negative-air ionizer, which many Americans use for the fresh feeling it puts in the air, with claims of reduced blood pressure, allergy and asthma symptoms.

In addition to official government looting of Germany (what GIs always called "liberating"), there was also the personal looting bonanza exemplified by Robert Maxwell, financier extraordinaire, and at one time the most hated man in Britain. The great contribution of this Orthodox Jewish citizen, born Jan Hoch in what was then Czechoslovakia, was to found a scientific publishing empire in Britain, called Pergamon Press, based entirely on German research he had looted with British intelligence connivance. Maxwell came to dominate the British tabloid press and raided his own employees' pension fund to the tune of 90 million pounds. He finally perished mysteriously and nakedly in a plunge from his yacht in 1991 just a week after standing up to the Israeli secret police, the Mossad - who may have set him up in business in the first place. Interestingly, his main co-conspirator in the United States, Robert Rubin, formerly of Goldman Sachs, is now secretary of the treasury [6].

When not gunning down a surrendering German mayor armed only with a white flag (as he boasted in a Der Spiegel interview) or bribing British officers to invent his heroic war record (for which war record Montgomery personally pinned a medal on him), Maxwell/Hoch [7] was in the British Zone of Berlin in 1946 with the full backing of British intelligence, coercing the vast research findings of the Springer science publishing house from Springer's widow for pence on the pound.

Ultimately, after Maxwell stripped $94 million from the pension funds of the 5,000 employees of the Mirror Group, his U.S. financiers at Goldman Sachs were stripped of an estimated $250 million to settle their claims - whereupon Maxwell's body was fished from the sea by an astonished Spaniard, to be buried with full honors in Israel and hopefully forgotten. Far from exemplifying that the Germans were nothing without Jewish scientific help, his life suggested that one Jew could become a billionaire exploiting German ideas.

Which raises the justifiable question of the atom bomb, which European Jews did produce for America and German scientists did not provide in time for Germany.

In Verschwörung und Verrat um Hitler,  Remer first notes the criticism that propaganda minister Josef Göbbels had received for his "stand-fast, the miracle weapons are coming" message after Stalingrad. (http://greyfalcon.us/The%20Battle%20Of%20Stalingrad.htm) Ironically, while many of these weapons came too late to save Germany from its fate of occupation, government decapitation and dismemberment, Remer reports that a member of U-234 sent him the following:

In the spring of 1945 I was ordered to report to serve on U-234. The sub was a specially redesigned former mine layer of the type XB with 1,760 tons, 4,200 horsepower and a 52-man crew. The commander was [a] Capt. Fehler.
     
On March 23, 1945 the boat steamed out of Kiel toward southern Norway unsubmerged. On April 15, 1945 it dove at South Christiansand with an immediate goal of proceeding between Iceland and the Faroe Islands. The destination was Japan.
     
Our orders stated that we were to bring air force Gen. Kessler as a Luftwaffe attache with his staff and technicians to Tokyo. The [emperor] had asked us to help build up Japan's air defenses with the weapons developed in Germany.
     
Also on board to this end were, besides the general, two air force officers, a navy anti-aircraft specialist, an underwater demolitions specialist, a low-frequency specialist from the staff of Prof. Küpfmüller as well as two Messerschmitt engineers (specialists for the construction of Me-262s) [12] and two Japanese frigate captains. One of them was [a] Capt. Tomonaga, who had collaborated with us in his capacity as a specialist for one-man torpedoes [13] when we were developing our own small combat boats.
     
Our cargo consisted of 12 steel cylinders, of the sort used for storing in mines, containing comprehensive microfilm material on the latest developments in German offensive and defensive weaponry, especially in rocket and rocket defense [anti-rocket rockets; TBR ed.] warfare, as well as our research findings in the areas of high- and low-frequency technology, and finally a decisive contribution to the development of nuclear energy and atomic warfare.
     
After passing through the Straits of Iceland and 28 days submerged at an average depth of 260 feet, a message reached us in the night of the 12th to the 13th of May [14] during snorkel travel, in which Grand Admiral [Karl] Dönitz ordered us to capitulate. At this point in time we were located in the middle of the Atlantic, southeast of the banks of Newfoundland.
     
The order to our captain was couched in a very personal tone, telling him to hand the U-boat over without destroying its valuable cargo. [15] After 12 hours of debate and reflection, Capt. Fehler decided in harmony with Gen. Kessler and after informing the two Japanese frigate captains that he would be carrying out Dönitz's order and surface to surrender. The two Japanese officers took their own lives before the boat surfaced.
     
Eight hours later, U-234 was taken as a prize of war by the American destroyer Sutton and brought to the U.S. Navy base at Portland, Maine.
     
The American officers and officials who subsequently interrogated us were evidently horrified over the contents of our U-boat. They criticized us for supposedly having no idea how valuable our cargo was. At the end of July 1945 the officer in charge of the investigation team declared to me that the microfilm evidence and the testimony of our technicians had proved that in decisive technical developments, we were "100 years" ahead of the United States.

Which raises the nagging question of where all these continual "UFO" sightings come from, which began a few short years after World War II - and the capture of German high tech. The same government which gave us the Warren Commission cover-up, the public silent treatment of the Israeli assault on the USS Liberty, [16] and a blithe nonchalance about the social significance of the Black/White/Asian racial differences proven in the best-selling Harvard study The Bell Curve, seems anxious to keep the public in the dark about all such "unconfirmed" sightings. [17].

It is at least interesting that it was just two years after the seizure of "50 tons" [18] of German aerospace and physics papers that the first major UFO story, the 1947 Roswell, New Mexico incident, broke. After all, what has fascinated researchers ever since (particularly government skeptics monitoring Area 51 at Groom Lake, north of Las Vegas) is things the Germans were working on: spacecraft which use new, tough, but lightweight materials, make 180 degree turns at Mach 4 without spilling the drinks and generally defy the laws of gravity, perhaps by the use of gyroscopes within gyroscopes.

It is well known that the German SS sent expeditions to Tibet, reputedly a land of mind-over-matter marvels - in the late 1930s. [19] The purpose was both to delve into evidence of Indo-European origins in the Himalayas and secret techniques used there, possibly including anti-gravity levitation. What ties this together with Europe, ancient America and Egypt is the finding of blond mummies or Nordic remains in or near many sites of architectural miracles.

As anyone who has seen the excellent programs on Egypt on the cable History Channel, can testify, both the people living in ancient Egypt and the rulers of Macchu Picchu were doing virtually gravity-defying feats in constructing their pyramids and temples.

One can only speculate as to what secrets the Germans may have revived or discovered anew during the Third Reich, and which are now being utilized by the current government in Washington. It is well known from excavations of blond mummies in Egypt and in South America by Thor Heyerdahl as well as the statements of Mexican Emperor Montezuma (welcoming the Spanish "back" as their fabled "white gods") that some sort of ancient white scientists or advanced physicists were involved with the origins of these cultures. Even the Chinese admit the existence of red-haired, blue-eyed tribes constantly infiltrating into ancient China (of which pictorial evidence is presented in a recent National Geographic). The great teacher Confucius himself (roughly 551-479 B.C.), of the noble K'ung family, was said to be a man of unusually tall stature for a Chinese, and Genghiz Khan (A.D. 1167-1227), the Mongol conqueror, had red hair and green eyes.

But the historical blackout continues. The government appears to be willing to hint that "aliens" from outer space are behind all this high tech. God forbid it should turn out that ancient Indo-Europeans were doing these things thousands of years ago, or especially Germans researching without the benefit of the Jews in the Third Reich.

Uncensored History of World War II

Theft of German Scientific Research Fueled Post-War Technology Boom

"TO THE VICTORS BELONG THE SPOILS" is an American saying (attributed to Andrew Jackson) and, regrettably, an occasional American practice as it was in the case of "the Great Patent Heist of 1946." It was made official policy in World War II by President Harry Truman's Executive Order 9604, also known as the "License to Steal," which permitted agents of the U.S. government to execute the greatest robbery in world history: the theft of German intellectual (scientific) property. What technology the Americans and Soviets stole has, in fact, fueled some of the greatest scientific advances of the modern era.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

By Daniel W. Michaels

Now, almost three-quarters of a century after World War II, as the fear of arrest and punishment for denying the received version of the causes and consequences of World War II as established by the victorious Allies diminishes, more and more Germans are investigating Allied behavior before, during and after the war. Aside from the "holocaust," which remains immune from critical studies, almost any aspect of the war, however embarrassing to the victors (e.g., the strategic bombing campaign), may now be studied without fear of retribution.

In this new spirit, Friedrich George has published a study of Allied postwar policy regarding the disposition of German intellectual property, especially the modern and futuristic patents of Nazi Germany. George finds that the Allies, chiefly the Americans and the Soviets, simply confiscated all patents, designs, inventions etc they could lay their hands upon - military, industrial and commercial - regardless of international law or the Geneva Conference. Once in the United States or Soviet Russia the German inventions were "reinvented" and stamped "Made in the U.S.A." or "XXXX."

When World War II ended, America's elite determined that the United States would not lapse back into its prewar depressed state, but rather would revitalize its economy and have a first-class military and industrial establishment. To this end, Germany`s advanced military hardware; aeronautical and industrial secrets would simply be confiscated and transplanted in America.

Even before the war ended, Vannevar Bush, America's scientific advisor, recommended that the activities of the Combined Intelligence Operations Subcommittee (CIOS), a joint Anglo-American intelligence-gathering operation, be expanded to include the exploitation of German technical information of an industrial nature as well as of strictly military matters. In August 1945, President Harry Truman, acting under the adage that "might makes right" issued Executive Order 9604 ordering the release and distribution of confiscated German scientific and industrial information (technologies, inventions, methods, processes, equipment etc) to the U.S. civilian economy. It was literally a license to steal.

President Truman's Executive Order 9604 provided for:

The release and dissemination of certain scientific and industrial information heretofore or hereafter obtained from the enemy, including all information concerning scientific, industrial and technological processes, inventions, methods, devices, improvements and advances heretofore or hereafter obtained by any department or agency of this government in enemy countries regardless of its origin, or in liberated areas if such information is of enemy origin or has been acquired or appropriated by the enemy.

~Gimbel, John. Science, Technology, and Reparations. Exploitation and Plunder in Postwar Germany. Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press 1990.

As the American military began to occupy Germany, they initially concentrated on locating and securing advanced German military hardware used in the war. In the summer of 1944 the Allied Combined Chiefs of Staff created military-civilian teams, called the Joint Intelligence Objectives Committee (JIOC), which was to follow the invading armies and uncover Germany's military, scientific and industrial assets. "Field Intelligence Agencies, technical" units (FIAT units) scoured the countryside for German economic assets. While the U.S. military had no qualms about confiscating German military hardware, they hesitated and eventually refused to engage in the wholesale seizure of German commercial and industrial assets, considering such action not within their authority. More than a few honorable U.S. Army officers, led by Gen. Lucius D. Clay, interceded with civilian occupation policymakers on behalf of the Germans to stop the looting.

Concerning the legality of the U.S. confiscations of German property, William G. Downey, chief of the Army's International Law Branch in the Judge Advocate General's Office, quoting extensively from The Hague Convention rules on the seizure of private enemy property, wrote:

It is a generally recognized principle of the international law of war that enemy private property may not be seized unless it is susceptible of direct military use. An army of occupation can only take possession...of property belonging to the state. (Gimbel 172)

The theft of intellectual property is not new, but the extent and ruthlessness of what the "wannabe" superpowers did in Germany from 1945 to 1948 was unprecedented. The United States and the Soviet Union literally stole the entire extant store of German patents, designs, inventions and trademarks. Germans, who were not forthcoming in informing the U.S. Occupation Forces of the existence and location of such records could be imprisoned, punished and even threatened with death for "insufficient reporting." To ensure that the Allies would have an insurmountable head start in exploiting the patents, the Germans were even forbidden to use or refer to their own inventions after they were confiscated. The German Patent Office was closed by the Allies and not reopened for several years. When it did reopen, the first number assigned was 800,001, indicating that some 800,000 original patents had been looted by the Allies. As a result, in the immediate postwar years, with Germany prostrate and robbed of its intellectual property, America and Russia soon emerged as the two superpowers in a bipolar world.

Konrad Adenauer, the first chancellor of the German Federal Republic, wrote in his Memoirs:

At the end of 1948 the director of the American office for technical services, Mr. John Green, gave the press a report on his activities, which were concerned with the exploitations of German patents and industrial secrets. What strikes one in this report is the fact that AMTORG [Moscow's foreign trade organization] was the keenest purchaser. During one month alone the Russians bought more than 2,000 Wehrmacht reports on secret German weapons, for which they paid $6,000. According to a statement made by an American expert, the patents formerly belonging to IG Farben have given the American chemical industry a lead of at least 10 years. The damage thus caused to the German economy is huge and cannot be assessed in figures. It is extraordinarily regrettable that the new German inventions cannot be protected either, because Germany is not a member of the Patent Union. Britain has declared that it will respect German inventions regardless of what the peace treaty may say. But America has refused to issue such a declaration. German inventors are therefore not in a position to exploit their own inventions. This puts a considerable brake on German economic development. (Adenauer 429)

Adenauer denied reports in the British zone of occupation press that he had characterized Allied measures regarding German patents as sheer robbery:

I had said nothing of the kind....I had mentioned the view of leading foreign politicians that the German patents were extremely valuable. My speech was intended to point out that German inventors still did not enjoy international protection of their rights and that this constituted a notable obstacle to German recovery. (147-51)

Years later, in 1953, the chancellor pressed President Dwight Eisenhower to resolve the question of the use of trademarks owned by German nationals before the war. Some progress had been made in restoring trademarks to their previous German owners, and Adenauer received assurances that no further German assets or trademarks would be confiscated or liquidated and that restitution would be "considered" at some later date. (That date has not yet arrived.)

The United States also promised to review the situation concerning German ships, with an eye to possibly returning them to German control.

Although Americans today find it hard to believe that this country was once a laggard nation in science and industrial innovations, it was, until the hostilities broke out in late 1941. America under President Franklin Roosevelt had failed to pull the country out of the doldrums of the depression, and while the economy, after having been put on a wartime basis, was unsurpassed in its volume of production, its products, including wartime hardware, were inferior to those of the German war machine. Mass production-quantity rather than quality-characterized American manufacturing.

Even during the war the United States was not particularly noted for major breakthroughs in pure science or innovative technologies. The National Science Foundation brought this deficit in American capabilities sharply to the attention of the government in a 1946 report indicating, among other factors, that up to that date the United States had been the home of only four Nobel Prize winners in chemistry as compared to 37 recipients in Europe, eight U.S. winners in Physics to 39 in Europe, and six in medicine, to 37 in Europe. Most of these prizes were awarded to Germans and Austrians.

While military analysts the world over now recognize the superiority of German World War II hardware, few, however, are aware that German scientists had done much of the basic scientific pioneer work in the development of many postwar industrial technologies and products for civilian use. In consumer goods and medical advances, Germans under National Socialism were enjoying color TV and color photography a decade before the American public could buy its first black-and-white sets. The Nazi government had modernized the road system in Germany in the 1930s with the Autobahn, and Volkswagen had begun to produce the 'Beetle' so that all citizens could afford to own an automobile. It was not until the 1950s, under President Eisenhower, that the United States undertook the construction of a modern highway system.

German scientists established a link between smoking and cancer in the 1930s, but fierce resistance of the American tobacco companies prevented the American people from having access to this knowledge until 20 years after its discovery. They studied the effects of positively and negatively ionized air on health conditions, developed performance-enhancing drugs, and introduced other innovative and therapeutic treatments that are common practice today everywhere. During the war Germans had also developed a synthetic blood plasma (capain), a blood liquid substitute (periston), and synthetic penicillin, 'substitute 3065.'

The revolutionary birth control pill, whose discovery was announced in the United States in 1951, also had its origins in investtigations conducted in the laboratories of Gottingen University, Germany, in the 1940s. Chemist Carl Dierassi, who emigrated from Vienna to America shortly before the war, worked with pharmacologists Gregori Pincus and John Rock to introduce 'Enovid' on the American market, protected by a U.S. patent, in the 1960s. (Georg, 157)

Germany, like Japan, was and remains one of the 'have-not' nations, small in size and wanting in natural resources. The development of synthetic (ersatz) products of all kinds was essential to German existence, especially in wartime. Necessity being the mother of invention, German chemists undertook to provide substitutes for Mother Nature's shortcomings. Most synthetics served well. Some, like ersatz coffee (Kaffee-Ersatz), fell short of general acceptance.

One of the largest hauls of classified information harvested by the Allies came from laboratories and plants of IG Farben, a syndicate with close American ties that held an almost complete monopoly on chemical production. Chemistry of course was the foundation for the creation of most synthetics. The enormous IG Farben Building in Frankfurt, which housed records of estimable value, was 'miraculously' spared during World War II bombing orgy, proving that better bombing accuracy was possible if the Allies had wished it. The vaults of the Farben Building contained secret industrial information on, among others, liquid and solid fuels, metallurgy, synthetic rubber, textiles, chemicals, plastics, drugs and dyes. Secret formulas were obtained for over 50,000 dyes, many faster and better than those in the democracies.

Several U.S. Army officers stationed in the Farben Building after the war commented that the value of the files and records confiscated would alone have been sufficient to finance the war.

In the digital world, for example, German prewar and wartime scientists had been at the cutting edge of important developments, from the quartz clock, semiconductors, silicon technology and transistors to the first computer. Among others, German researchers Herbert F. Matere and Heinrich Welker, working with Zeiss, Siemans and the Kaiser Willhelm Institute for Silicate Research, were the first to develop the process for the industrial production of integrated circuits and transistors.

The culmination of these advances in solid-state physics and digital instrumentation in Nazi Germany was the wartime development of a pioneer computer, the Z4. Engineers Konrad Zuse and Helmut Schreyer in Berlin developed these earliest computers. Zuse's laboratory and earlier models of his computer, dating from 1937, were destroyed in bombing raids during the Battle of Berlin, but in the immediate postwar era Zuse was able to rebuild a fully operational Z4 by 1949, several months before the debut of the U.S. Eniac. Zuse is also credited with having developed the first programmable computer language, 'Plankalkul.' America's Bill Gates met with Zuse in 1995 and now displays Zuse's picture in his office at Microsoft.

Of foremost importance to all industrial nations, and to Germany in particular for the war, was the need for a reliable source of energy to power the factories, heat the homes, and fuel the ships, planes and vehicles of the nations.

Germany possessed coal but not oil. German chemists met the challenge quickly and successfully through the development of both the Fischer-Topische and the hydrogenation methods of converting (liquefying) coal into oil and, from the oil, to make lubricants and gasoline. In the course of the war these plants were gradually being moved underground to protect them from bombing. After the war the Allies confiscated all patents and records on the design and operation of the hydrogenation and Fischer-Topische plants and forbade the Germans from using existing plants or developing new ones, making them dependent on imported oil. For example, 10% of Marshall Plan had to be used to buy American oil.

Germany is also said to have invented a distillation process for the separation of gasoline from oil by the use of audible frequency vibrations. Self-sufficiency in power generation is essential to the sovereignty and independence of all nations. So important is the power factor that the planned Berlin-Baghdad-Basra railroad is said to have been as decisive for the British declaration of war against Germany in World War I as the development of the Fischer-Topische and hydrogenation processes in Germany was for the British declaration of war in World War II. As long as Britain and France controlled the Near East oil fields, Germany would never be granted free access, nor would the Allies want to see Germany gain oil independence through its newly developed conversion processes.

In the matter of nuclear power, German scientists in Berlin were making feasibility studies of the possible uses of nuclear energy to propel ships and submarines as early as 1941. Moreover, the possibilities of employing nuclear reactors to power land vehicles were also being explored.

To list just a few of the many technological advances of consumer interest, German industry developed synthetic mica, synthetic sapphires, Diesel engines, plastics, rayon-weaving machines, the cold-extrusion process, UV milk pasteurization, fruit juice sterilization without heat, food preservation techniques, magnetic tape, infrared night vision aids, laser guidance and so on. The patents, test models, and prototypes of all of the above were simply taken and exploited by their new proprietors.

By the time the war ended, Germany had 138 types of guided missiles in various stages of development and production as well as every conceivable experimental and operational guidance and triggering systems (radar, radio, wire, continuous radio waves, acoustic, infrared, light beams, and magnetics) for its war effort. The 'rocket' that launched the United States into superpower realm was German. The Soviet Union also copied the German weaponry but largely ignored consumer products.

In May 1955 Paris Agreement, the Allies, aware of the improprieties involved in their seizure of German industrial secrets, made the German Federal Government agree to renounce all claims or objections to Allied actions during the occupation:

The [German] federal government shall in the future raise no objections against the measures which have been, or will be, carried out with regard to German external assets or other property, seized for the purpose of reparation or restitution, or as a result of the state of war, or on the basis of agreements concluded, or to be concluded by the Three Powers with any other Allied countries, neutral countries or former allies of Germany. (Georg 338)

It is clear from the above provision that the Allies, chiefly the United States, still maintain the right to monitor German industry by means of the 'Echelon' eavesdropping program and other intellignece aganecies. The fruits of this ongoing surveillance are sent, among other destinations, to U.S. and Israeli recipients. (Georg 345)

It is of course impossible to determine exactly how much the confiscation, sale, and the industrial exploitation of the German patents enriched the United States and Israel in dollars. Prof. John Gimbel, in his book Science, Technology, and Reparations: Exploitation and Plunder in Postwar Germany, estimates the 'intellectual reparations' taken by the U.S. and the UK alone amounted to about $10 billion.

In 1952 the publisher Herbert Grabert ventured an estimate of $30 billion. Converted into 2008 dollars these estimates would amount to hundreds of billions. If the loot taken by the Soviet Union were also taken into account, the sum would likely approach $1 trillion. An infusion of this amount into the U.S. economy over a period of years easily explains U.S. postwar prosperity.

In conclusion, author Friedrich Georg warns that successive countries in history have for a time enjoyed a leading position in world power, only to see the baton pass on to competing nations, America too must guard its vanguard position. In order to ensure its status as the world's superpower today, the United States will have to maintain an innovative scientific, engineering and technological base. China, Georg believes, is currently in the best position to overtake the United States in that the Chinese have talent, the drive, the geography and most importantly, thanks to globalization, the wealth (in U.S. dollars) to buy whatever they require.

"Captured" German and Japanese Information and Know-How

 Following the advancing Allied Troops into France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and, later, Japan, teams of military and industrial specialists came right on the heels of the combat units to collect documents and study German and Japanese military and industrial developments that had produced some of the major weapons used by the enemies especially towards the end of the war: the jet engine, the V-1 and V-2 rockets, high-speed aircraft, remotely guided mini-tanks to destroy combat tanks, one- and two-man kamikaze U-boats, and many more. Worse, there was talk of the existence of flying saucers, atomic bombs, chemical and biological ammunition, and other miracle weapons which Hitler or the Japanese were going to use during the end-phase of the fighting in order to wrest victory from the Allied Forces.

The more desperate the situation became for the Axis Powers, the weirder the schemes that came to light: there was talk, for example, that the Japanese were building mini-bombers which could be stored on U-boats and thus transported close to the Central American mainland. Re-assembled on board and launched from the boat, these bombers were to destroy in a suicide mission, the gates of the Panama Canal and thus interrupt the shipping of essential war materials and supplies from the factories of the eastern United States to the Pacific theater of war.

The American and British teams of military and industrial specialists following the combat troops were charged to find out what was actually there and what could, reasonably, be expected to happen. This was, by no means, a safe and pleasant job. Most of the 'targets' had, more or less, been subjected to bombing or devastated during the fighting; the Germans were still counter-attacking; there were mines and unexploded ammunition everywhere; and the just 'liberated ' Germans were not always friendly or co-operating. Some of the intelligence men lost their lives or were wounded and all were living and working under conditions that were not better than those for the soldiers. But why the hurry, could this information gathering not have taken place later?

One reason why not was the lack of intelligence concerning the state of atomic bomb development in Germany. The Allies did not know that Hitler, not wanting, or not being able to recognize the revolutionary potential of atomic weapons, did not favor, and, therefore, support financially, the development of these bombs on the level that would have assured success. There was also talk later on that German physicists like Werner Heisenberg and Otto Hahn, and their staffs, who had been in the forefront of atomic research prior to the war, were hesitant to deliver the all-destructive power of the atom into the Führer's hands and kept stalling. Furthermore, some of the most brilliant minds had left Germany and Europe for the United States during Hitler's persecution of the Jews and were now working for the Allies. True or false: the West did not know what was really going on and how far the German research had advanced literally until the last days of the conflict when, with the capture of Heisenberg, they finally could breathe easier.

What was known to the Allies was that the German chemists had developed highly toxic and deadly gases and biological cultures, that these were already being used to kill Jews and other 'undesirables' by the thousands, and that there would be a good chance that Hitler would use these poisons at the end of the war to destroy his enemies and what was left of his own people. To secure and study these weapons and, possibly, find antidotes, was another reason for the rapid deployment of the intelligence troops.

Thirdly, it was expected that the war against Japan, especially following the Allied invasion of the Japanese homeland, would be a bitterly fought and long-lasting battle costing many casualties on both sides. Where there any weapons in the German arsenal that could be quickly adapted for use against the Japanese?

Finally, the development of German miracle weapons had to be based on advances in research and development by Germany's industry and research facilities from basic to advanced levels and the results of that research had to be made available to American and Allied companies for their exploitation and use, especially during the period of conversion from wartime to peacetime economy.

The Collectors

The teams collecting military and industrial information and documents were made up of small groups of military and/or industrial specialists, working independently. They were recruited from military or Government laboratories and from American and British companies and were experts in their fields. Knowing the state of development in their specialties in their own countries, they were able to judge whether German development was superior, inferior, or just useful. All teams reported to their own field agencies; their reports were generally classified "secret" until after the capitulation of Germany and of Japan respectively. There seems to have been little coordination or cooperation between the individual agencies and, to the dismay of German factory owners and what was left of their technical staffs, many of the targets were visited by several teams and more than once, and, what one team left behind, the others took. The most important agencies working in Germany and their 'fields of interest' were the following: (1)

OSS, the Office of Strategic Services - identified targets of strategic and industrial importance and provided this information to other agencies which then sent investigative teams.

EEIS, the Enemy Equipment Intelligence Service - actually located German and Japanese equipment, such as new aircraft, tanks, binoculars, ammunition, metalworking equipment, etc. for evaluation and to instruct Allied personnel in its use. Later, the staff was used to evaluate German industrial equipment in general.

ALSOS Mission - This group, composed of military and counter-intelligence specialists was charged with a specific mission: to determine the state of atomic bomb development in Germany.

FIAT, the Field Intelligence Agency, Technical - was established to investigate German industrial development during 1939 - 1945 primarily in the American Occupation Zone. Headquartered in Frankfurt, it was the 'collecting' arm of the Technical Industrial Intelligence Committee (TIIC).

CIOS, the Combined Intelligence Objectives Subcommittee - was made up of American and British specialists to examine German industrial targets. The reports issued by this group are the CIOS and JIOA (Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency) document series.

TIIB, the Technical Industrial Intelligence Branch (later: TIIC, Technical Industrial Intelligence Committee) - was established as an agency of the Joint Chiefs of Staff but transferred to the Department of Commerce in January 1946. Its task was to look into every segment of the German industrial landscape and obtain any information that might be of interest to American companies. During 1946 TIIB sent over 400 investigators into Germany. Many of these industrial experts traveled at their company's expense, sworn in as temporary Government employees without compensation. TIIB arranged with the Army for their transportation and for their living and working quarters in Germany. In return, the investigators agreed that their findings would be fully reported in writing to TIIB and that these reports would be made public.

To make sure that individual investigators did not use information obtained from German companies for their own or their company's exclusive use, two men from competing companies were teamed up. Furthermore, the reports submitted were reviewed for completeness by TIIB staff and the American military government. Overall, TIIB staff selected from the 3.5 billion pages collected from the files of German industry about 3.5 million which were considered of interest to United States industry. The documents chosen were filmed in Germany, the rest were left there. In addition, TIIB brought more than 300,000 pounds of German equipment and product samples from Germany, in addition to the 200 tons of materials captured by the Army and Navy, which was also turned over to civilian agencies for study and testing after the military had completed its studies (2).

Navy Technical Mission, Europe (Japan) - original a portion of the ALSOS Mission, was assigned to investigate German (and Japanese) advances in synthetic fuels and lubricants of interest to the Navy. U.S. Naval Technical Oil Mission in Europe: Production of Synthetic Fuels by the Hydrogenation of Solid and Liquid Carbonaceous Materials (PB 27701).

TOM (Technical Oil Mission) - A non-military group sponsored by the U.S. Bureau of Mines, was made up of American and British petroleum experts and charged with investigating the industrial production of synthetic fuels and lubricants from coal using the Fischer-Tropsch method. The Bureau and American industry actually built petroleum manufacturing plants according to German specifications after the war, but the glut of petroleum available then made the program uneconomical. In the 1970's, however, faced with a petroleum embargo, the Republic of South Africa developed the SASOL synthetic petroleum plant using the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. Working under different economic constellations, it is still in operation today. U.S. Government Technical Oil Mission. Index. Microfilm. Reel.... (LC call number: Z6972.U6)

The Documents Research Center, A-2, United States Air Forces in Europe - was "organized for the purpose of collecting and processing all captured German air documents. The organization was moved to Wright Field, Dayton, Ohio, in 1946 where the project is being continued by the Air Documents Division, Intelligence, T-2. While the Research Center was still in Europe it was estimated that between 1,000 and 1,500 tons of German air documents eventually would be collected. The final screened library, however, and the collection which is now at Wright Field consists of approximately 220 tons. These documents are in the process of being cataloged, indexed, abstracted, translated and analyzed." (3).

The Library of Congress was to have received a complete copy of the filmed material but only about one third of the total output was sent. The archival copy was turned over by the Air Force to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum and can be consulted at its Garber Facility in Suitland, MD. The copy retained by the Library of Congress cannot be used in modern reader-printers which tear the microfilm copies into small segments. All books and journals from the same haul were turned over by the Air Force to the Library of Congress where they were examined and new items incorporated into the general collections. Duplicates were made available to other libraries or discarded, if not claimed. The reports are indexed in a multi-volume Desk Catalog of German and Japanese Air-Technical Documents (Z5063.A1U6). Some of the air documents were also made available to the Publication Board of the Department of Commerce, re-issued and made available to the public as PB documents.

The United States Strategic Bombing Survey - studied the effectiveness of the Allied bombing effort on targets in Germany, as well as German-occupied France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The Library of Congress Foreign Mission - was sent to gather books and journals published in Germany (and the rest of Europe) and not available for purchase through normal channels once the war had been declared. Up to that point German literature could still be obtained either directly from the sources or by way of neutral countries (Sweden).

The Targets

Any company having in some form contributed to the German war effort (and who had not, no matter how large and small) or having research information or products that would be of interest to Allied manufacturers, was considered a 'target'. Much information on German industries had already been compiled and made available to the Allied air armies by the United States intelligence agencies. Further targets were research institutes, universities, military laboratories, testing ranges and supply depots, Government agencies like the Reichsforschungsrat (The National Research Council), even concentration camps (sites of medical research using humans as test objects), the Reichspatentamt (Patent Office), the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Air Force Ministry), the Wehrmachtwaffenamt (Army Weapons Agency), their subordinate departments, research/test facilities, etc.

It was not always easy to find the targets - many had been destroyed by bombing or during combat, their documents burned, looted, removed for or from safe storage; owners, managers, scientific personnel killed, drafted into the armed forces, dispersed, relocated; roads and rail lines impassible; the population frightened, uncooperative, hostile: 'After what you have done to us, why should we give you our family- company- and commercial secrets? They belong to us, we will need them to rebuild...' In other cases people cooperated willingly, often for the chance of getting food, cigarettes.

Sometimes several visits and some arm-twisting was needed to get the Germans to deliver documents, information, and sometimes it just took a good dose of Yankee ingenuity. Theodore von Karman, a world famous aeronautical scientist, who was a member of one of the teams looking for information on German experimental aircraft, describes his experiences at an aeronautical research facility near Braunschweig that had escaped Allied detection and bombing because it was so well camouflaged that nobody knew it existed. The team had gone through the trashed, chaotic laboratories, looking, but finding very little, when, suddenly, on a desk in a corner someone noticed a scale model of the swept-wing bomber, a type of aircraft that nobody had ever seen before. They reasoned that were there was a model, there must also be documentation, like wind tunnel, testing, and design data. But no matter where they looked and whom they interrogated, the records could not be located. Finally von Karman, who had been a student at nearby Göttingen University before the war, resorted to a ruse:

I had with me a sergeant assigned to Intelligence. Frank Tchitcherine was of Russian origin, and in fact had been related to the first minister of education in the Kerensky government of Russia. As we were walking to our automobile with the director, I said in English, which I knew the director understood:

'Listen, Tchitcherine, we are through here. I think now it is time to notify Russian Intelligence to take over'

Russian Intelligence was nowhere in the vicinity. But I knew that the Germans were terrified of the Russians and that this might stir them into action. I was right. The next day the director called in Tchitcherine and took him to a dry well. He looked inside. It was full of documents.

Among them were the papers describing the sweptback wing and providing considerable wind-tunnel data which showed clearly that the sweptback plane had superior speed properties near the speed of sound. These data were the first of its kind. Schairer quickly wrote to his Boeing associates to stop work on the Mach 1 transonic plane with the straight wing which they had designed, telling them of his find. He microfilmed the data and used them when he got back to Seattle to design the B-47, the first U.S. sweptback bomber....

In going through the papers, Ted Toller, one of my former assistants who was on a committee involved with these documents, came to me one day and said that he had found a very interesting report. The title, as translated by the English-speaking German sergeant, was 'The Resistance of Undernourished Bodies.' Troller wondered what this title was doing in a collection of aerodynamics material. So he looked up the author and found it was von Karman. It was a translation of my 1931 paper 'The Drag on Slender Bodies'.

The documents revealed that the Germans had conducted a variety of interesting research at Braunschweig. For instance, they had run studies of the effect of wind on human beings and shown that the human being can take velocities up to 550 miles an hour. They also had developed an emergency pressure suit fixed up with a cylinder of oxygen like those used in USAF life rafts. If a plane flying at 70,000 feet loses pressure, the pilot can jerk a ribbon and re-pressurize himself. All these items were valuable to the United States." (4)

The Loot

I am not sure that there was, in the end, an exact accounting of how many documents/pages were taken from Germany, or if that was at all possible. Some documents contained more than 1,000 pages, others, like patent applications, only one.

Von Karman, in the source already cited goes on to say that "some 3,000,000 documents, weighing 1,500 tons were sifted and microfilmed in Europe; eventually they formed the basis for the collections of ASTIA, the Armed Services Technical Information Agency, " now the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC). The Annual Report of the Secretary of Commerce for 1946 (5) talks about 3,500,000 pages that TIIB selected. If one adds the documents brought to the United States and processed at Wright Field, and those deposited at the Library of Congress, then the number of pages becomes astronomical.

I remember that when I came to the Library in 1957, there were large green boxes, 'footlockers' 8 feet long, stored, to the very ceilings, in the hallways and vestibules of the 4th floor of the Adams Building, containing documents to be processes by the Air Information and Air Technology Divisions under contract to the Air Force. One day they were gone - "shipped back to Germany" and soon AID and ATD were abolished also. In addition to corporate papers, there were interviews with plant/laboratory personnel, photographs, blueprints, patents and patent applications (the Secretary of Commerce talks of thousands of applications obtained from the files of the giant I.G.Farben complex alone which had not even been filed with the Reichspatentamt because of staff shortages everywhere) and much more. From these mountains of materials the industrial teams prepared summary reports some up to 1,000 pages thick. To give an idea of the coverage it is interesting to look at just a small selection of the important new discoveries which they contained:

One of the best customers for German technical information were the American aircraft and airline industries. In addition to general studies of the German air transport industry (PB 17920, 19717), there are studies on 'Plastics in the Aircraft Industry' (PB 1104, 4351, 27000, 58373), 'Aircraft Hydraulic and Fuel Systems' (PB 16684), 'Magnetic Brakes for Propellers (PB 464, 4349), 'Helicopters' (PB 6339, 6340, 16712, 17544), 'De-icing of Windshields' (PB462, 23815, 23856, 31251, 40292, 58242); then there are numerous reports on rocket fuels (PB186, 392, 405, 4284, 23815, etc). In terms of military aircraft two reports are of interest: The Horton Tail-less Aircraft (PB 260) possibly a forerunner of the stealth bomber, and German High-Speed Airplanes and Design Development (CIOS XXXI-3).

In the area of construction the Germans were forced, because of the devastating success of Allied bombings, to put their most important factories underground. Immense tunnels running for miles under the Harz Mountains in Thuringia were built by slave labor from the nearby Buchenwald concentration camp at a horrendous cost in human lives to house whole synthetic fuel refineries as well as aircraft and rocket assembly lines. Obviously, such underground installations and their ventilation, heating and cooling, sanitation, etc. systems were of great interest to the Bureau of Mines and the mining industries, as well as the Defense Department, which was preparing abandoned mines as 'safe places' for high Government officials in case of future wars. (PB 25638, 25639, 27779).

Acetylene is one of the most versatile intermediates for the generation of synthetic rubbers, plastics (vinyl), and industrial alcohols, plus many other compounds. It is also highly explosive so that its generation, transport and use must be subject to very strict controls. German industry, depending greatly on acetylene, devoted much energy and research to making it safe and expanding its use. (PB 188, 189, 377, 485, 517, 969, 1017, 4287, 7745, 7747, 23750, 25560, 28556, 44943, 46966).

Germany has not been blessed with significant oil deposits; to fuel her war machine she depended on imports from the Soviet Union and Rumania. When these sources were lost, she had to rely on synthetic fuel derived from her rich coal reserves. The process, called the Fischer-Tropsch Process, uses water gas, a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide derived from the hydrogenation of coal, coke, or lignite and extra hydrogen over catalysts at elevated pressures and temperature to generate straight-chain hydrocarbons and waxes which can be further processed to yield fuels, lubricants, facts, even some type of margarine. (PB 284, 288, 289, 373, 1279, 1291, 7745, 7917, 12624, 18911, 18926, 23750, 28883, 46390, 49196, 66130, 75817, 75845, 77706, 78242)

Plastics and synthetic fibers have always spawned successful industries in Germany. Here are just a few examples of many reports published in these areas: 'Plastic Plants' (PB 400, 403, 531, 979, 1069, 25642, 37784); 'Chemical Developments in the Synthetics Industry' (PB 1243); 'Soda Ash and Caustic Soda' (PB 7746, 7797, 27434, 40122); 'Dyestuff Intermediates' (PB 82, 60945, 67569, 77672, 78269, 78276)

Solid fuels: Germany always has had enormous supplies of coal in the Ruhr and, after the annexation of portions of Poland in 1939, also control over the Upper Silesia coal deposits. Improving the technologies of mining and processing coal was important for the war effort (PB 1827, 4322, 4323, 4345, 4461, 4462, 20579).

Sulfonamide: In wars past more soldiers died of infections of their wounds than in actual combat. With the beginning of the 20th century, great strides were made in the development of sanitary methods and anti-bacterial agents. German doctors, chemists and pharmacists had always been in the forefront of medical research. The development of sulfonamide was no exception (that it was tested on human guinea pigs in the concentration camps is another chapter). (PB 237, 248, 918, 77766, 80380 with 10 supplements)

One of the most dreaded diseases was malaria and research to find effective drugs was really universal. The German effort , except for the test methods, was significant (PB 237, 239, 246, 1101, 1718, 1859, 81613)

Some of the most cruel experiments were performed in the field of aviation medicine by the infamous SS-doctor Sigismund Rascher at Dachau Concentration Camp. Simulating conditions experienced by a pilot shot down over the North Atlantic, he subjected inmates to exposure to cold by immersing them in ice water to find out how long they could survive and possibly have a chance for being rescued (PB250). Another experiment involved pilots at high, oxygen-poor altitudes - when should they pull the cord to inflate the parachute and how long could they free-fall before losing consciousness? (same report).

Metallurgists in Germany were far ahead of their American counter-parts in the field of magnesium and magnesium alloy production and processing; the reports were much in demand by American companies (PB 204, 18930, 18948, 29663, 23748, 44675, 49828, 94315)

One curiosity is reported in the literature that simply begs to be repeated: Among all these high-technology, war-related products and efforts, there appears a lonely teddy bear and other stuffed toy animals manufactured by the Steiff Company, which was the target investigated by a British specialist on behalf of a British manufacturer.

Evaluating the Loot

The activities of FIAT and the 'acquisition' of German industrial know-how are best described in a unique book by John Gimbel: "Science, Technology, and Reparations: Exploitation and Plunder in Postwar Germany." It is 'must-reading' for anybody studying or interested in the years immediately following World War II in Europe. It is the only attempt, to my knowledge, of reporting the efforts of trying to put a price tag on what was taken. In summary, Gimbel refers to a meeting early in 1947 in Moscow of the Council of Foreign Ministers, established by the victorious nations to deal with problems arising from inter-zonal relations and the question of German reparations.

Molotov, the Soviet Foreign Minister, "argued the case of his government's claim against Germany for 10 billion dollars in reparations, reportedly stating that Great Britain and the United States had already received considerable reparations from Germany in the form of patents and other technical know-how. 'Press reports say that these reparations amount to more than ten billion dollars' Molotov said" (6). (In true Soviet fashion, and true to the old Communist maxim that 'what is yours is mine and what is mine is none of your business' Molotov did not mention that the Soviet Union had already taken from her occupation zone literally everything that was not nailed down, and if it had been, they took that and the nails, too.

For example, the Russians dismantled vast stretches of the rail system in East Germany, the locomotives, passenger- and freight cars, the rails, the ties upon which the rails rested, and then the gravel upon which the ties had been laid). "General Marshall", Gimbel continues, "the American Foreign Minister, in response stated: 'We have used United States scientists to obtain information on German science, including patents, all of which information is being published in pamphlets and made available to the rest of the world. As a matter of fact, Amtorg, the Soviet Purchasing Agency in the United States, has been so far the biggest single purchaser of these pamphlets. The pamphlets cost a nominal fee to cover printing and administrative expenses. No ten billion in reparations is involved." (7).

But once raised, the question of the value of the German industrial information obtained by Britain and the United States would not go away. Early estimates ranged from $10 million to $275 million. It was General Lucius Clay, the American High Commissioner in Germany, who kept on raising the question and prod the War-, Navy-, State-, and Commerce Departments to come up with a 'realistic' figure. General Clay was not against the official position of the United States that America should not pay the Germans for the industrial know-how taken; on the other hand he felt strongly that the value of this information should be counted towards the reparations that would be imposed by the victors on the Germans. Years of political maneuvering between the U.S. Government departments involved produced no results.

The Departments of the Army and the Navy did submit data; Commerce declined, saying that the true value could only be assessed five to ten years down the road when it became known what American industry had done with the information; State refused to comply outright saying "that such an evaluation would serve no practical purpose except 'to keep the American conscience clean'... The FIAT material should not be valued for reparation purposes. The discussants had essentially three reasons: First, given the hundreds of tons of documents and materials held by the Commerce Department, the task of sorting and evaluating separate items with the staff that could be assigned to it would be physically impossible. Second, the material was not only for the United States, and it would be doubtful that other countries would agree to charge their reparations accounts similarly. Third, reparations was an integral concern and properly the subject of an international agreement." 8

John Gimbel tried to make his own evaluation of the know-how taken from Germany. Using statements made in public or in writing by U.S. Government officials and industrialists directly involved in evaluating and/or using the information contained in the German documents, as well as reports from the political and trade press, he arrived at a value of $ 5 billion for the U.S. take. By doubling this value to account for the British 'acquisitions' he arrived at - surprise! - the $10 billion mentioned by Mr. Molotov.

But this did not conclude the question of the value of the intellectual know-how derived from German industry. In late 1946 and early 1947 various German initiatives were started to evaluate the German losses. Up to this point the Germans had only been repaid for copying costs of the documents, obviously a ridiculously low sum. But the German efforts also failed as most companies, even those hardest hit, refused to cooperate for tax reasons. In other attempts the reported data could not be reduced to common denominators to yield meaningful results.

Only after the new West German Government had agreed to forego any tax investigations that might evolve from the reporting, did industry finally comply. A report, issued by the Notgemeinschaft für Reparationsgeschädigte Industrie (Emergency Union of Industries Damaged by Reparations) in February 1951 "estimated the total value of the patents, trademarks, and other intellectual property ('geistiges Gut') removed from Germany to be somewhere in the range of 10 to 30 billion Deutschmarks (DM) not Reichsmark, the currency used in Germany prior to its devaluation of 1949, or between $4.8 and $12 billion" (9). What was the actual value? If we consider that the Library of Congress still receives requests for copies of the German materials, more than 50 years after the War, primarily in the areas of dyestuffs, plastics, fuels, and, more recently, for the location of industries, test ranges for guns and ammunition, storage depots of chemical, biological, and explosive weapons (for the purpose of localizing and sanitizing toxic soils) then, maybe, the Commerce Department was right when it insisted that the value should be based on the usefulness and actual use by American industry over an extended period of time?

Other Foreign Documents

Obviously, the main interest in foreign information was concentrated on the German collection: its size, the immediacy of collecting and processing, the language (many American scientists and engineers still had studied German in college), the fact that German industry before the war had been a main competitor of many American companies, and that the Germans were renowned for the quality of their research. This also explains why Germany was investigated so thoroughly.

From the very beginning, the situation involving Japanese information was different: not many people could read Japanese and the systematic investigation of Japanese industries did not begin until much later, giving the Japanese industrialists a chance to sort out what they wanted to give and what not. Also, as the mountains of German documents, along with materials from U.S. and British sources started to pile up, the Japanese documents were somewhat neglected. In his Annual Report for 1947 the Secretary of Commerce stated:

In addition to data from Germany, and documents from American sources, the (Bibliographic and Reference) Division (of the Office of Technical Services) is beginning to receive materials directly from Japan. Some of it consists of up-to-date technological studies prepared by Japanese nationals on subjects of interest to American industry. Many wartime and pre-war Japanese publications have also been received during the past year from the Washington Document Center. This Center is the Washington processing office which was set up to handle materials gathered in Japan by the military forces. Although much material has already been received, a large part of it is now out of date and of little value. We have been assured, however, that valuable documents from this source will reach us during the coming year. (10)

The Secretary continues:

The Belgian Government has voluntarily contributed scientific reports to the Division. In addition, extremely important material has been received from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hungary, South Africa, Italy, and France.... The excellent relations which OTS through this Division, has had with the British in the exchange of reports is noteworthy. At present the British Intelligence Objective Subcommittee, commonly known as BIOS, maintains a liaison office in Washington. Our work with this office might well be cited as a fine example of international cooperation. The British have generously provided large quantities of their printed reports and with single microfilm copies of any of their manuscript reports which were requested. They also provide a special reference service for this Office and for American business firms. We, on our part, provide a similar service for the British. (11)

What Happened to the Documents?

We must not forget that the collectors were dealing with mountains of material and that only a very small fraction was processed and filmed. Thus the question has remained ever since "What happened to the rest?" It is still being asked today, especially if a researcher is interested in, let's say, a particular camera made by the Leitz Company and he is looking for the user manual. In my search for the answers I have, over the decades, talked to many people some of whom had been in the collecting and processing effort. "You cannot imagine, unless you had been there, how many documents and single pages were scattered all over the floors, crammed into shelves, stacked from floor to ceiling, falling over, spilling, it was utter chaos," I was told.

The filming was often equally wild: page after page the documents were pulled through the machines , with quantity rather than quality being the determining factor by untrained machine operators who did the best they could under the circumstances. Quality control was non-existent. The result was that some film rolls contain almost in their entirety, only blurred, useless images. Also, when specialists wrote reports, let's say on the 'German Optical Industry' the supporting documents were, unless the were deemed important enough to be registered individually, discarded; the same happened to translated documents.

Military and Nazi Party documents generally were brought to the United States, sorted, filmed, and eventually returned to German archives. Books and journals were, supposedly, turned over to the Library of Congress, but we are not sure that we actually received all that was designated for the Library. According to Richard Eells, Acting Chief of the Aeronautics Division, "the Library, by agreement with the Air Material Command, Wright Field, has become the depository for all purely historical and descriptive portions of this captured material. The preliminary winnowing of the shipment from Wright Field yielded 9,114 aeronautical books, periodicals, and ephemera.

In addition, more than 18,000 items representing the literature of related fields were turned over to the Library for its general collection. Some of the confiscated libraries belonged to institutions that loomed large in the history of the Luftwaffe: e.g., Junkers, Focke-Wulf, the Deutsche Akademie der Luftfahrtforschung (German Academy for Aeronautical Research), the Deutsche Forschungsinstitut für Segelflug (German Research Institute for Gliding), the Flugfunkforschungsinstitut (Research Institute for Aeronautical Radio), and the Reichsluftfahrtministerium (Air Ministry) itself." (12). During the past years I have inspected about two thirds of the Library's aeronautical collection but found but a dozen or so volumes having book plates ascribing them to the libraries of the institutes just mentioned. This certainly does not add up to the 12,000 books from the Junkers Aircraft Company Library alone that we supposedly received.

It is interesting to note that according to German newspaper reports (13) published after the war, the American officer in charge of the team collecting the Junkers Library was none other than Charles Lindbergh, who was no stranger to Hitler's Germany. Because of his friendship with Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring and General Udet (he was later accused of having been a Nazi sympathizer) many doors had opened to him in Nazi Germany and he had visited and inspected the aircraft manufactured by Junkers several times. We must also remember that the Allies had much respect for the German Luftwaffe and that one of the stipulations of the German capitulation was that she would never again build an air force. Therefore, all books and reports in German libraries that could be used to re-build the Luftwaffe, were to be removed from Germany. Now Dessau, where Junkers was located, was to be in the designated Russian Zone - why would the Americans leave a library of such importance to the Russians? So, what happened to these libraries?

Eells, in the article cited (14) also mentions another important aspect:

A check of the Deutsche Nationalbibliographie indicates that the Library of Congress has acquired many, if not all, of the commercial aeronautical imprints in Germany during the war years.

One of the strengths of the Library of Congress before and for some decades after the War was its aeronautical collection. Now, if we already had almost all of the books contained in the Junkers and the other German libraries, we would have made the rest either available to other interested American libraries, or, on demand, returned the volumes to German archives (the disappeared footlockers?). Since the Junkers Aircraft Company, located in the Russian Zone or the German Democratic Republic, did no longer exist after 1945, who would have received the returned material? The Russians?

Title: * WWII History ~ The Great Patents Heist
Post by: Sue on August 15, 2010, 05:44:12 PM
After World War One the Germans of America have become so disenfranchised that they displayed the Stars and Stripes even in their own clubs, and sing the American national anthem there louder than anywhere else! There were no longer any clubs or associations that retained their German character or consciousness.

American historians find that no more than one percent of the German-Americans were "fanatical National Socialists" during and since the war `“ in 1940 a political periodical described America as the "mass grave of the German emigrant".

German industrialists contributed extensively to the production of arms against their country of origin.

In the Seattle assembly plants of the entrepreneur Boeing, whose origins are in Hohenlimburg, the Flying Fortresses are built that drop 640,036 tons of bombs on Germany. The Bechtels arm the navy. Dwight D. Eisenhower, whose ancestor was driven out of the Odenwald for his pacifist views, is the Commander-in-Chief of the Allied forces, and Chester D. Nimitz, whose grandparents were from Bremen, becomes Fleet Admiral. Generals Krüger and Eichelberger lead two armies, General Spaatz commands the bomber fleet, and hundreds of thousands of soldiers of German extraction fight for America. Additionally, after the war, the financiers Bernard Baruch and Henry Morgenthau Jr. compete in the development of ideas for Germany's ultimate annihilation. Baruch's ancestors were from East Prussia, the Morgenthaus from Mannheim!

Regarding America's entry into the war under the leadership of Roosevelt, the President who according to the unanimous verdict of all Revisionists 'tricked America into the war with lies', Joachim Fernau writes:

The 'Lusitania' had once cost 128 Americans their lives, but Roosevelt's Pearl Harbor cost 4,000!

These were lives which this ambitious and cynical warmonger sacrificed in cold blood in order to finally force his reluctant people "through the back door" and into the war against the Axis powers!

In his 1947 book The Crime of Our Age about America's war politics, war aims and political morals - a book which circulated widely in America even in the highest political circles, including President Truman's - the American Reverend Dr. Ludwig A. Fritsch writes:

In the presence of God I ask our nation, I ask you, ministers of the Gospel: Did the Germans in all our histories ever inflict such injuries on us as we did in the two World Wars and still do inflict on them? What wrong did the German nation do to us Americans that we punished them twice in a generation in the most cruel and inhuman way such as history never saw before? Do you call that American gratitude for all the hard work and faithfulness by which German people here built up our country and won our victories?

Of the German scientists and engineers who worked under Wernher von Braun in Peenemünde to develop the V2 rocket and who surrendered to the Americans in 1945, some 120 went to America "voluntarily" as intellectual war booty. Among them was the noteworthy scientist Dr. Rudolph, who was later - after he had served his purpose! - banished again from the United States, even though he held American citizenship! Working in Huntsville, Alabama within the framework of NASA, von Braun invented the propulsion system for the Saturn V, making the 1969 "Apollo" trip to the moon possible. Martin Schwarzschild, a professor who had immigrated from Potsdam in 1937, had contributed substantially to this success. And even Neil Armstrong, "the first man on the moon", was of German extraction - his ancestors were from Ladbergen in Westphalia.

Between 1951 and 1960 a new wave of immigrants arrived in America: almost 478,000 Germans and some 104,000 Austrians - and these were not a negative selection, such as would be the case later on, in a different country, but the cream of the crop, selected according to strict criteria! Additionally, the American occupiers of post-war Germany brought several thousand German women home as "war brides". Most of these immigrants were people with special qualifications, who no longer saw a future for themselves in their homeland, destroyed as it had been by Anglo bombs. Another reason for the hopelessness experienced by these unemployed Germans is to be found in the post-war dismantling of vital German industries, as well as in the influx of millions of Germans fleeing from Stalin's Red hordes.

Reverend Fritsch comments on this post-war situation:

The extradition and presentation of entire countries and nations to the Russians by Roosevelt; the senseless and deliberate destruction of the most magnificent cities; the most cruel expulsion of millions of Eastern-Germans from their century old homes; the development and the execution of the Eisenhower-Morgenthau-Roosevelt plan, the most inhuman act of revenge since there is a recorded history; the slow and painful murdering of 20-30 million human beings by starvation, cold and privation. Those are not political 'mistakes' as our leaders now want us to believe; they are conscious, deliberate, premeditated crimes!

In 1987 the American Congress declared October 6 to be "German American Day", an empty gesture since the Germans continue to be the States' only, yet largest, minority with no voice. But at least at that time reference was still made to the countless contributions Germans made to America's development (a subject which is now an absolute taboo again). According to Längin, there was a certain recollection that "Walter Chrysler (Kreisler) had founded the automobile manufacturing company that is named for him; that Martin Brill from Kassel had established the largest manufactory of street cars, Johann Bausch and Heinrich Lomb the foremost manufactory of optical lenses, and Karl Pfizer from Ludwigsburg a leading drug company. Charles Schwab and Henry Flick are regarded as giants of the steel industry, and the Viennese Charles Bluhdorn was co-founder and President of Gulf & Western Industries. Frank A. Seibelring, a descendant of immigrants from Stuttgart, was the founding father of the company Goodyear, and the ancestors of his main competitor Harvey Firestone (these are the two largest American rubber manufacturers; ed.) were Austrians who had immigrated via Alsace. Hermann Hollerith introduced the first electric calculating machine in his adopted homeland, and in 1942 the Viennese woman Hedy Lamarr (actually Hedwig Kiesler) received the patent for a torpedo guidance system."

"The opinion of history remains divided," adds Längin. "The German sickness, namely a lack of group consciousness, is the formula that facilitates a rapid and thoughtless assimilation into the host society, which quickly turns the German into the 'Anglo monkey' and the United States into the 'graveyard of the Germans'." The historian Lamprecht comments in a similar vein: "The Germans have failed as Germans," and no Oktoberfest with lederhosen, chamois hat decorations, yodeling and beer can whitewash that!

The question remains whether the demise of America's most numerous, efficient and probably also most decent ethnic group with the lowest crime rate of all is the consequence primarily of German naivete and lack of political ability, or of a large-scale, clever exploitation of German energy and expertise by the politically savvy Anglo-Saxon leadership elite.

Regarding the crimes committed by America against the Germans as well as other peoples in both world wars and since, Reverend Dr. Fritsch expresses the educated German-American view thus:

All these tremendous might and power and profits were achieved at the lowest price in comparison to the appalling damage and the irreparable loss we inflicted on our 'enemies.' Hitherto we were in our whole history the lucky winners of all our aggressive wars against the Indians, the English, Spaniards, Mexicans, Japanese and twice against the Germans. In this last gigantic struggle of nations we have lost only as many human lives as we have at home by accidents.

The American Red Cross in 1945 reported officially that '99 per cent of the American prisoners of war in Germany have survived and are on their way home!' (In contrast to this fact we have sent not 1 per cent of our German prisoners of war home, but we traded them as slaves to France and England!) Concerning the 260 billions - the cost of Roosevelt's war - it is more than paid off through the patent secrets and art treasures and scientists stolen and kidnapped from the Germans. Thus we have only profited from all the wars we waged while at the same time we inflicted on mankind unspeakable misery and bitter disappointments. The greatest of all sins in the presence of God and in the light of history that we as a nation have committed is making ourselves guilty of matricide. Europe is our physical and spiritual mother. But most of all we should appreciate and honor that nation whose sons' and daughters' blood and sweat mostly had flowed for our country: the German. Is it not true that in every third American's veins flows Teutonic blood?

And as for the possibilities of a Germany left in peace, Reverend Fritsch writes:

In my opinion the Germans would have broken the eccentricities of Hitlerism after they had reached their goal - unification of all Germans. Their unique ability to organize would have created order and tranquillity in Europe and in the World in the shortest possible time. They would have created the United States of Europe without bloodshed. They would have placed their great capabilities in the fields of science, arts and technology to the disposition of the whole world as they did before. Ther deep spiritual life would have enriched and ennobled mankind, as for example the unique German music and hymns heretofore did."

With regard to the jealous fear of competition that characterizes England, the nation Hitler (oddly enough) admired so much, he writes:

Germany was at that time at the zenith of her might, fame and reputation. She built the greatest and most luxurious ships of the world with which she gained the world market, because she was able to supply the best and cheapest production. In the realm of science Germany was ahead of all nations of the world. Her scientists had more Nobel-Prizes in all spheres of science than all the other nations combined. From all countries of the globe the seekers of knowledge and lovers of art came to the famous universities of the 'people of poets and thinkers.' But the might and greatness of Germany was at the same time envied and suspected. England, feeling that she was put back to play the second fiddle in world affairs, in her unsatiable greediness worked so hard and so long until she succeeded in surrounding Germany with enemies. Europe became a powder keg. Only the spark was necessary to make her explode. The world became ablaze.

For the second time! For even regarding the earlier great European fraternal war, Fritsch observed:

When our soldiers returned home and after they had seen the sad consequences of our intervention in the European quarrel they cried out: 'We fought on the wrong side!'

True, but that might not happen. Meanwhile if they don't want to pay the price, they get their coolies to go to war for them and 'clean up'...

As I just said in a short message: The dumbing down of the allies and their grunts was a resounding success, the rest was just sheer gravy for the elites.

Yep, German culture that developed what we now call the coming together of science and technology in the late 19th century and early 20th century is as significant in the history of the world as the domestication of animals, 5th century Athens, middle age Christianity, 7th century Islam, and the Renaissance; this is the world we were born into and were going to die in. Unfortunately, when the Jews rushed-in to take control of this empire of the mind they actually killed the spirit of innovation and invention in science/technology, so all we have today is repetition and some improvement of the same ideas the Germans came-up with in this time period.

Case in point, the new i-phone that just came out that allows tele-calls. The Germans in the early 1930's had connected several cities with phone/TVs that allowed people to do the same. For sure the technology of the time didn't allow one to have portability, but that's expected in time and after several generations. the same with many other concepts, too many to name here, such the cruise missile, jet plane, etc.. What is important is the influence of the culture that created this and many other concepts.

The philosophy of science/technology became the most valuable commodity hence why the Jews rushed in with their cunning to take control to turn it into a product that could be sold with interest and be used as an instrument to Jewish power. Once control was achieved by the Jews by cunning, murder, and theft, they moved on to re-write history. So naturally today, if we believe the Jew's historical narrative, the greatest innovations of this period were created by Jews -- they have 90% of the Nobel Prizes, are the top scientists, doctors, and researchers. I don't believe this Jewish myth can changed at this time because we are still living in WWII propaganda mode and anything that was created by this German culture at this time vilified, as we all know. In the future though this culture will be given credit, but not in our lifetimes.

The irony of course the Jewish takeover has destroyed the spirit of innovation and creativity in science/technology so all we have today repetition and sales-manship -- an improved and better cruise missile is not an innovation but a refinement in the same way the Romans refined Greek art and architecture, or how the generations after the Renaissance fined tuned what was created during that period. This is the philosophy of our time.

I imagine in the future there will probably be another great movement to come along that will create a new concept that we at this time can't even imagine, but at this time innovation and the creative spirit is being chocked by a too-tight leash around its neck.

A lot of it has to do with properly orienting the workforce, as Hitler did, as the philosophy of national socialism does.  Just look at what jews have us doing (if anything) today.

My wife an I spent all afternoon yesterday installing a front door latch and deadbolt, drilling the holes, aligning everything, etc.  We bought the made-in-China hardware at a surplus store for 90.  It's supposed to high end, but everything today it is missing the high level of precision and heaviness of old German stuff.  Of course, it's just designed to the vendor spec to make profits for the jews who own the company.  The latch wasn't so smooth.  But in doing it ourselves, we save a lot of money.  Then you see all the older kept up houses built 100 years ago and before, when everything had to be done by hand tools.  Humanity was more productive back then, could actually make betters homes with hand tools.  Could you imagine what it would cost today to have a home made the old fashion way?  Put's in perspective where jews have us today.  Stinkland.

I enjoyed your story about installing your deadbolt, latch, etc., Wag. This is happening in high-tech as well. I own a top of the line, for it's time, G5 Power Mac that I invested a lot of money in for my photography hobby. It went kaput after only 4 years with only myself using this machine as a single user. And may I add I am a very fussy individual who really takes care of his stuff. I was willing to invest considerable money to make it operational again, but the Apple store does not want to be in that business, nor the local Mac repari experts. So now I am stuck with an Apple Cinema display with a Matte Screen that cost me $1500, 5 years ago.

The new Mac Pro machines have new displays that are very glossy. They are also considerably cheaper. I would have to get an adapter to use my old display, but now I wonder if the video card in the new machine will be up to the task of optimizing what this old display can do. These new glossy displays are also used in the very popular iMac machines. They resemble what people use on their phones and I think they are designed to make the casual photographer's photos look as brilliant as possible at the expense of the pro, or amateur with pro skills. Nothing wrong with providing something desirable for the great majority, but I am somewhat stunned at how quickly this happened.

True, NS brought together this, innovation, logistics of raw materials, and threw off the blood-sucking banking system. But even though the spirit of German innovation reached its height in the 30's and 40's, it wasn't an invention of NS -- it had already existed for several generations.

I have nothing against cheap stuff that works. Overall home construction is better today -- the cheapest house(shack) today is better than the cheapest house(shack) of a100 years ago (most shacks from 100 years are not standing).

If NS was the peak of innovation, then the production of China is the peak of repetition and non-innovation. But who knows, maybe in the future China might be the birthplace of the next big philosophy/movement? Heck, they don't even have a name for the German innovative spirit that led the movement in science/technology in the latter 1/2 of the 19th century through the first 1/2 of 20th century.

I think you're wrong about Chinese manufacturing.  They produce some cutting edge stuff today.  But nothing like the Germans. 

I knew the point I was trying to make wouldn't be easy. The concept of what the Germans did in the 100 yr period doesn't change. For sure the Chinese improve and fine tune concepts the Germans came-up with, but they haven't created a new concept. The concept of improving and fine tuning technology is a German concept that reached its peak in the 30's and 40's, and we are going to stuck in this conceptual world until some group in the future breaks through with a new concept.

For example, the Greeks created a conceptual world that was adopted by the Romans, but the Romans didn't go beyond the Greeks conceptual world of architecture, philosophy, literature, etc... Like the Chinese, the Romans improved, fine tuned it, and spread the concept beyond the former Greek sphere, but the concept was still Greek.
Animal domestication which happened 10,000 yrs ago has been improved and fine tuned, but the concept is still the same.

A "stellar accomplishment'' in such a short time! And that from 4 or 5 percent to 90%.  It's a miracle! 
Must be nice to have G-d on your side... :P


The German concept of innovation in technology exited before the NASDP came to power. The NASDP though can be credited with organizing and giving this concept the resources that propelled into the stratoshpere.

In this case I was thinking about the German concept of innovation not the Jewish stranglehold of our time. I was looking at the big picture of human history. Of course, we really can't ignore the Jew's innovation of Marxist/Socialist societal organization(Talmud based) that allowed the Jews to set the politics of our time regardless if they are run by Jews or not. Ironic as it may seem, even Hitler had to use Marxist/Socialist societal organization tools to rise to his position to oppose the Jewish system. And as much today's world cannot escape the concept of German innovation, societies also cannot escape Jewish Marxist/Socialist societal organization tools(Jews also cannot escape German innovational technology).

Germany has one of the world's highest levels of education, technological development, and economic productivity. Since the end of World War II, the number of youths entering universities has more than tripled, and the trade and technical schools of Germany rate among the world's best. I don't know of anyone in my circle of friends who does not speak a second language fluently.

Yes Laconas, Germany`s needs to get back to taking steps others have not taken. But how, considering who is calling the shots in apparently still occupied Germany?

I have no idea, but I doubt any change will come to N. America and Europe with Jews running the banks of the world. The only thing I see in the near future depends upon what the BRIC countries(Brazil, Russia, India, China) do shake-off the Jewish stranglehold.

(http://thefastertimes.com/bathrooms/2009/07/29/where-is-my-japanese-toilet/)

What the Japanese are doing with their toilet is the German innovative concept, they and the rest of the world at this time are imitating the thought process of the GIC. The Japanese and the rest of the world have taken the GIC and have made into a tradition. The Japanese wouldn't be thinking about making a better toilet if it wasn't for the Germans in the late 19th century who created the concept.

Everybody in the whole world knows the Germans build great mechanical shit -- everybody. The only group who doesn't seem to know it are the people who run academia and write our history books because were still living in WWII propaganda and the Jews do not want to acknowledge that such a concept was ever born at a certain time and was created by a certain group of people. The fact billions around the world think in terms of the GIC makes it one of the handful of great movements in history. In the end it's not the stuff Germans created in the 100 yr period but the concept of how they did it that will endure forever.

As far as the Chines inventions, they are significant but the concept of innovation didn't exist in Chinese culture for others to build on their shoulders, so it was a cultural dead end in the same way the Greek who made the first steam engine in the 1st century, or the Antikythera, that computer with gears and stuff. Chinese and Greek culture during the time of these inventions had not yet grasped the concept of innovation as a cultural movement. We cannot imagine living in a world without technological innovations, but that only our world because of 19th century Germans, but for most of history humans didn't think in these terms.

A couple of  more cultural dead ends that were revived. Athenian democracy was revived in the 19th century -- during its time it died out. Domes and arches have been found in Egypt and Greece 1000 yrs before the Romans revived them and turned them into practical building components.

Germans have a keen sense of vision for making life more enjoyable, which means less work, more quality and comfort.  But the execution is done in a socially sensitive way, not like how greedy corporations or modern western gov'ts would do it (if they ever did).

No argument here.

Any original concept, new or improved device, product, material, business process or service falls within the definition of innovation.

The Japanese have excelled when it comes to innovations.

Japan is a resilient country, with an undying spirit to excel. With renewed vigor, the nation has ascended to
glorious heights after each setback that it has encountered.

The Plot Against America

by Philip Roth

(http://www.houghtonmifflinbooks.com/assets/product/0618509283.gif)


About The Plot Against America

Set in Newark, New Jersey, in the early 1940s, The Plot Against America tells the story of what it was like for the Roth family and Jews across the country when the isolationist aviation hero Charles Lindbergh was elected president of the United States.

Roth's richly imagined novel begins in 1940, with the landslide election of Lindbergh, who blamed the Jews for pushing America toward war with Nazi Germany. Lindbergh's admiration of Hitler and his openly anti-Semitic speeches cause increasing turmoil in the Roth household, and in nine-year-old Philip, as political events at home and abroad overtake their daily lives. Alvin, the orphaned nephew the family has taken in, runs away to Canada to fight the Nazis. Sandy, Philip's older brother, ascribes his parents' fears to paranoia and embraces Lindbergh's Just Folks program, which sends him and other Jewish children to live in the "heartland" for a summer. Philip's mother, Bess, wants the family to flee to Canada before it is too late to escape. But his fiercely idealistic father, Herman, refuses to abandon the country where he was born and raised as an American. Overwhelmed by the tensions around him, Philip tries to run away. "I wanted nothing to do with history," he says. "I wanted to be a boy on the smallest scale possible. I wanted to be an orphan." But history will not let go, and as America is whipped into a deadly frenzy by demagogues, the Roths and Jews everywhere begin to expect the worst.

In The Plot Against America Philip Roth writes with a historical sweep and lyrical intimacy that have rarely been so skillfully combined. As the novel explores the convulsive collision of history and family, readers take a chilling look at devastating events that could have occurred in America--and consider the many possible histories existing beneath the one that actually happened.


About Philip Roth
In 1997 Philip Roth won the Pulitzer Prize for American Pastoral. In 1998 he received the National Medal of Arts at the White House, and in 2002 received the highest award of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Gold Medal in Fiction, previously awarded to John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, and Saul Bellow, among others. He has twice won the National Book Award, the PEN/Faulkner Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award.

In 2005 Philip Roth will become the third living American writer to have his work published in a comprehensive, definitive edition by the Library of America. The last of the eight volumes is scheduled for publication in 2013.


Questions for Discussion
The discussion questions that follow are designed to enliven your group's discussion of Pulitzer Prize winner Philip Roth's extraordinary new novel, The Plot Against America.

1. In what ways does The Plot Against America differ from conventional historical fiction? What effects does Roth achieve by blending personal history, historical fact, and an alternative history that might have happened?

2. The novel begins "Fear presides over these memories, a perpetual fear" [p. 1]. With this sentence Roth establishes that his story is being told from an adult point of view by an adult narrator who is remembering what befell his family, over sixty years earlier, when he was a boy between the ages of seven and nine. Why else does Roth open the novel this way? What role does fear play throughout the book?

3. How plausible is the alternative history that Roth imagines? How would the world be different if America had not entered the war, or entered it on the side of Germany?

4. When the Roth family plans to go to Washington, young Philip wants to take his stamp collection with him because he fears that, since he did not remove the ten-cent Lindbergh stamp, "a malignant transformation would occur in my absence, causing my unguarded Washingtons to turn into Hitlers, and swastikas to be imprinted on my National Parks" [p. 57]. What does this passage suggest about how the Lindbergh election has affected the boy? Where else does this kind of "magical thinking" occur in the novel?

5. Herman Roth asserts that "history is everything that happens everywhere. Even here in Newark. Even here on Summit Avenue. Even what happens in this house to an ordinary man `” that'll be history too someday" [p. 180]. How does this conception of history differ from traditional definitions? In what ways does the novel support this claim? How is the history of the Roth family relevant to the history of America?

6. After Mrs. Wishnow is murdered, young Philip thinks, "And now she was inside a casket, and I was the one who put her there" [p. 336]. Is he to some degree responsible for her death? How has his desire to save his own family endangered hers?

7. Observing his mother's anguished confusion, Philip discovers that "one could do nothing right without also doing something wrong" [p. 341]. Where in the novel does the attempt to do something right also result in doing something wrong? What is Roth suggesting here about the moral complexities of actions and their consequences?

8. When Herman Roth is explaining the deals Hitler has made with Lindbergh, Roth comments, "The pressure of what was happening was accelerating everyone's education, my own included" [p. 101]. What is Philip learning? In what ways is history robbing him of a normal childhood? Why does he want to run away?

9. What motivates Rabbi Bengelsdorf, Aunt Evelyn, and Sandy to embrace Lindbergh and dismiss Herman Roth's fears as paranoia? Are they right? In what ways do their personal aspirations affect their perceptions of what is happening?

10. In what ways are Bess and Herman Roth heroic? How do they respond to the crises that befall them? How are they able to hold their family together?

11. Roth observes that violence, when it's in a house, is heartbreaking: "like seeing the clothes in a tree after an explosion. You may be prepared to see death but not the clothes in a tree" [p. 296]. What causes Herman Roth and Alvin to fight each other so viciously? What is it that brings the violence swirling around them off the streets and into the house? Why is violence in a home so much more disturbing than on the street or the battlefield?

12. Much is at stake in The Plot Against America `” the fate of America's Jews, the larger fate of Europe and indeed of Western civilization, but also how America will define itself. What does the novel suggest about what it means to be an American, and to be a Jewish American? In what ways are the Roths a thoroughly American family?

13. What does the Postscript, particularly the "True Chronology of the Major Figures," add to the novel?

In 1935 a jew tried to assassinate Huey Long, the man who could have defeated cryptojew FDR in the 1936 election. Huey Long did not die from the bullet, however, so jewry had one of their doctors botch the surgery in the hospital, to finish the job. And that was how Huey Long died.

I'll bet jewboy Philip Roth never put that fact in his so-called "historical novel."  :P

According to wikipedia, Dr. Carl Weiss didn't kill Huey Long.

Quote
Carl Weiss
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carl Austin Weiss (December 6, 1906 `“ September 8, 1935) was a young Baton Rouge, Louisiana physician who allegedly assassinated U.S. Senator Huey Pierce Long, Jr. on September 8, 1935, though his family has vigorously disputed the assertion most recently in an interview with his son, Dr. Carl Weiss, Jr. on an Unsolved Mysteries program first aired in 1993.[1] Weiss was shot on the spot by Long's bodyguards. The most convincing evidence presented on that program, ostensibly exonerating Dr. Weiss, revolves around the ballistics evidence and the conclusions of the insurance company which issued Huey Long's life insurance policy. Long died from either a .38 caliber or a .45 caliber bullet consistent with the bodyguard's ammunition, while Dr. Weiss actually owned a .32 caliber gun which was not seen by anyone at the scene at the time of the confrontation. The insurance investigators concluded that Long's death was "accidental" and that the stray bullet which eventually killed him had been fired carelessly by one of his bodyguards. The fatal shell, fired at relatively close range, was found by the surgeons lodged in Long's body and the conclusion reached on Unsolved Mysteries was that the fatal bullet had either passed through Dr. Weiss's body first or ricocheted off the solid marble walls. In addition, the surgeon's report noted that Long's lip was cut, bleeding and severely bruised, consistent with the punch to Long's mouth attributed to Dr. Weiss by several observers at the scene.

Wikipedia is jew-controlled.

The surgeon who operated on Long in the Louisiana hospital was also a jew. He was the one who actually killed Huey Long.

As for the medical examiner, he was either blackmailed or bribed; take your choice, for the result is the same.

Jews constantly use four methods to stab non-jews in the back: bombs, bullets, blackmail and bribery. And that is just about jewry's order of preference.

The Rape of Nanking was not much different from other rapes committed by the Colonists.

The "Rape of Nanking" was just one of numerous minor but occassionally brutal military operations of the time, in an area that was historically controlled by brutal Chinese warloads.  In this case, the faction that had aligned itself with the Japanese industrialists caught the other side in a vulnerable position and nearly wiped them out.  The story was elevated to prominance by Iris Chang, who allegedly committed suicide.  Here is a link showing her jewish husband at her funeral.

http://www.life.com/image/51767307 (http://www.life.com/image/51767307)

It is a re-writing of history using the convenience of Japanese vilification, flavored with holocaust-like mythology, for the primary purpose of disassociating Nanking with the famous and much more historically significant Treaty of Nanking, an oppressive military decree (international theft by the usual suspects) imposed on the Chinese after the first Opium War.  So just as the the "holocaust" overwrites the story of the tragic fate of the German populace (e.g., Dresden, etc.) at the hand of the allies, the "rape" of Nanking overwrites the Chinese fate at the hands for the same imperialists.  Same tactic, same oppressor.

It is a re-writing of history using the convenience of Japanese vilification, flavored with holocaust-like mythology, for the primary purpose of disassociating Nanking with the famous and much more historically significant Treaty of Nanking, an oppressive military decree (international theft by the usual suspects) imposed on the Chinese after the first Opium War.  So just as the the "holocaust" overwrites the story of the tragic fate of the German populace (e.g., Dresden, etc.) at the hand of the allies, the "rape" of Nanking overwrites the Chinese fate at the hands for the same imperialists.  Same tactic, same oppressor.

No Copyright Law  ~  The Real Reason for Germany's Industrial Expansion?

(http://www.spiegel.de/images/image-117294-panoV9-vord.jpg)

08/18/2010 -- By Frank Thadeusz

source: http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist/0,1518,710976,00.html#ref=nlint

Did Germany experience rapid industrial expansion in the 19th century due to an absence
of copyright  law?  A German historian argues that the massive proliferation of books, and
thus knowledge, laid the foundation for the country's industrial might.

The entire country seemed to be obsessed with reading. The sudden passion for books struck even booksellers as strange and in 1836 led literary critic Wolfgang Menzel to declare Germans "a people of poets and thinkers."

"That famous phrase is completely misconstrued," declares economic historian Eckhard Höffner, 44. "It refers not to literary greats such as Goethe and Schiller," he explains, "but to the fact that an incomparable mass of reading material was being produced in Germany."

Höffner has researched that early heyday of printed material in Germany and reached a surprising conclusion -- unlike neighboring England and France, Germany experienced an unparalleled explosion of knowledge in the 19th century.

German authors during this period wrote ceaselessly. Around 14,000 new publications appeared in a single year in 1843. Measured against population numbers at the time, this reaches nearly today's level. And although novels were published as well, the majority of the works were academic papers.

The situation in England was very different. "For the period of the Enlightenment and bourgeois emancipation, we see deplorable progress in Great Britain," Höffner states.

Equally Developed Industrial Nation

Indeed, only 1,000 new works appeared annually in England at that time -- 10 times fewer than in Germany -- and this was not without consequences. Höffner believes it was the chronically weak book market that caused England, the colonial power, to fritter away its head start within the span of a century, while the underdeveloped agrarian state of Germany caught up rapidly, becoming an equally developed industrial nation by 1900.

Even more startling is the factor Höffner believes caused this development -- in his view, it was none other than copyright law, which was established early in Great Britain, in 1710, that crippled the world of knowledge in the United Kingdom.

Germany, on the other hand, didn't bother with the concept of copyright for a long time. Prussia, then by far Germany's biggest state, introduced a copyright law in 1837, but Germany's continued division into small states meant that it was hardly possible to enforce the law throughout the empire.

Höffner's diligent research is the first academic work to examine the effects of the copyright over a comparatively long period of time and based on a direct comparison between two countries, and his findings have caused a stir among academics. Until now, copyright was seen as a great achievement and a guarantee for a flourishing book market. Authors are only motivated to write, runs the conventional belief, if they know their rights will be protected.

Yet a historical comparison, at least, reaches a different conclusion. Publishers in England exploited their monopoly shamelessly. New discoveries were generally published in limited editions of at most 750 copies and sold at a price that often exceeded the weekly salary of an educated worker.

London's most prominent publishers made very good money with this system, some driving around the city in gilt carriages. Their customers were the wealthy and the nobility, and their books regarded as pure luxury goods. In the few libraries that did exist, the valuable volumes were chained to the shelves to protect them from potential thieves.

In Germany during the same period, publishers had plagiarizers -- who could reprint each new publication and sell it cheaply without fear of punishment -- breathing down their necks. Successful publishers were the ones who took a sophisticated approach in reaction to these copycats and devised a form of publication still common today, issuing fancy editions for their wealthy customers and low-priced paperbacks for the masses.

A Multitude of Treatises

This created a book market very different from the one found in England. Bestsellers and academic works were introduced to the German public in large numbers and at extremely low prices. "So many thousands of people in the most hidden corners of Germany, who could not have thought of buying books due to the expensive prices, have put together, little by little, a small library of reprints," the historian Heinrich Bensen wrote enthusiastically at the time.

The prospect of a wide readership motivated scientists in particular to publish the results of their research. In Höffner's analysis, "a completely new form of imparting knowledge established itself."

Essentially the only method for disseminating new knowledge that people of that period had known was verbal instruction from a master or scholar at a university. Now, suddenly, a multitude of high-level treatises circulated throughout the country.

The "Literature Newspaper" reported in 1826 that "the majority of works concern natural objects of all types and especially the practical application of nature studies in medicine, industry, agriculture, etc." Scholars in Germany churned out tracts and handbooks on topics such as chemistry, mechanics, engineering, optics and the production of steel.

In England during the same period, an elite circle indulged in a classical educational canon centered more on literature, philosophy, theology, languages and historiography. Practical instruction manuals of the type being mass-produced in Germany, on topics from constructing dikes to planting grain, were for the most part lacking in England. "In Great Britain, people were dependent on the medieval method of hearsay for the dissemination of this useful, modern knowledge," Höffner explains.

The German proliferation of knowledge created a curious situation that hardly anyone is likely to have noticed at the time. Sigismund Hermbstädt, for example, a chemistry and pharmacy professor in Berlin, who has long since disappeared into the oblivion of history, earned more royalties for his "Principles of Leather Tanning" published in 1806 than British author Mary Shelley did for her horror novel "Frankenstein," which is still famous today.

'Lively Scholarly Discourse'

The trade in technical literature was so strong that publishers constantly worried about having a large enough supply, and this situation gave even the less talented scientific authors a good bargaining position in relation to publishers. Many professors supplemented their salaries with substantial additional income from the publication of handbooks and informational brochures.

Höffner explains that this "lively scholarly discourse" laid the basis for the Gründerzeit, or foundation period, the term used to describe the rapid industrial expansion in Germany in the late 19th century. The period produced later industrial magnates such as Alfred Krupp and Werner von Siemens.

The market for scientific literature didn't collapse even as copyright law gradually became established in Germany in the 1840s. German publishers did, however, react to the new situation in a restrictive way reminiscent of their British colleagues, cranking up prices and doing away with the low-price market.

Authors, now guaranteed the rights to their own works, were often annoyed by this development. Heinrich Heine, for example, wrote to his publisher Julius Campe on October 24, 1854, in a rather acerbic mood: "Due to the tremendously high prices you have established, I will hardly see a second edition of the book anytime soon. But you must set lower prices, dear Campe, for otherwise I really don't see why I was so lenient with my material interests."

Very interesting, I didn't know the specifics but it seems to fit into my world view that what happened in this period was a unique and influential period that set the tone on how to improve science/technology. Unfortunately, it also makes me less optimistic about improvements in S/T because with so many laws today and the criterion of only investing in innovation where it is beneficial to our oligarchs in the form of money or power. Conceptually what grew in 19th Germany has spread the entire world and is the mode of thinking, but beyond improving what already exists, I don't see anything new conceptually coming along in S/T in our lifetime.

But even though Science/Technology won't change conceptually for hundreds of years, I see other institutions that will change, namely our political system based conceptually on Talmudic influenced Marxist/Socialist with an Athenian democratic veneer. As we are seeing Greece the democratic veneer is falling apart to leave the ugliness of the Talmudic based system exposed. For sure in the last few years we saw the veneer fall off the elections in Palestine, the 2000 American presidential election, and the recent overturning of the people's will in California. But, Greece might be different because it involves bigger issues and is a potential spark that could spread throughout Europe, and of course there's the symbolism as the birthplace of so called democracy.

So even though the Japanese will make better toilets, we'll have more efficient cars, and street corners will have no traffic lights -- all these things are predictable because they're based on S/T innovative mindset developed in the 19th century. What is not predictable is the kind of political system we will develop after the Athenian democratic veneer is no more. For sure the first reaction of the oligarchs will be military rule, but that can only last for so long in having a long term productive and peaceful society. Eventually a new political system will emerge that we at this time can only speculate on.

To me, Laconas, this is all very interesting and not what our 'occupied public fool system' taught us. My Dad knew, my Grandparents knew, I was too young to be told and understand what really happened.

Who knows how things will play out in Greece, being a homogeneous society is their strength. One spark has changed history before.....

This would also be the first reaction in the USA and Canada. (FEMA Camps!) The disadvantage here is that our society is not homogeneous.

That may be past our time.   8)



     It is imperative that the Myth of the Holocaust be upheld and nurtured. Should it ever be exposed as a
     gross fabrication (which it is), the consequences of that would be highly unsettling, to say the least
     (hefty refunds for starters). Actually, the truth is already out, but of course the Mass Media (property of
     the few) is not going to print it any time soon!

Therefore it is of great importance that the Holocaust Myth finally gets resolved. This cannot be done by a still occupied Germany.  

BUT someday maybe there will come a time when 'The Few' go one step too far and the whole house of cards comes crashing down.

Thank you for that, EB. Most enlightening!  

The British lords, the Hapsburgs, and other imperial leaders panicked as they saw  America`s nationalist  upsurge spreading and threatening the utter route of oligarchism. Britain`s intrigues led to world war and the political catastrophes that broke up America`s international alliances. But Britain`s permanent hysteria over the post-Civil War U.S. outreach is shown by its complete purging of Lincoln-Carey politics from historical accounts of the period.

Yet, one can still see the shadow of these events in the so-called `Austrian School` of economics, concocted by the British and the Hapsburgs in the 1880s, in reaction to Germany`s radical policy reversal. In this ultra-free market dogma`” the doctrine of Friedrich von Hayek and of today`s neo-con-servatives`”Otto  von  Bismarck  and  Abraham  Lincoln are made into the twin bogeymen of modern history, the supposed originators of despotism and communism!

Yep, German culture that developed what we now call the coming together of science and technology in the late 19th century and early 20th century is as significant in the history of the world as the domestication of animals, 5th century Athens, middle age Christianity, 7th century Islam, and the Renaissance; this is the world we were born into and were going to die in. Unfortunately, when the Jews rushed-in to take control of this empire of the mind they actually killed the spirit of innovation and invention in science/technology, so all we have today is repetition and some improvement of the same ideas the Germans came-up with in this time period.

Some notes:

Islam was good for forcing the translation of technical texts into a common language. - For ex:  the Greek Galen's medical ponderings - which could then be transmitted via the common Arabic language all over the world and go from Islamic conquered Greece to Islamic conquered Spain.

The Muslims took Hindu numbers (which had the number zero) from Islamic controlled India and transmitted them to Spain.  Hence our misnamed Arabic numberal system, which is really Hindu in origin.

Like Jews, Arabs are often transmitters of the ideas of others, rather than inventors of their own ideas.  Though clearly Jews do invent many original ideas of their own.

7th century Islam really invented very little.  It was a borrower and transmitter of culture not a creator.  They were not Greeks by any measure, and one has to wonder how much they stole from the Greek and claimed as their own.  This might be asked also of Jews, whose rabbis condemned the Hellenization of Judaism, which tells you how far along it carried.  The Hosmonean Kings of Israel took Greek names.

Lest you forget, the Germans were rivalled by the 19th century Scots in their creativity.  Look at what comes out of Scotland and you would be astounded.

And finally, Edison and Tesla (both Christian) were amazing innovators.

BTW:  It was Jewish movie producers who stole film production away from Edison.  They refused to pay royalties to Edison, even though today, their descendants, the RIAA, sue children over royalties.

Benefits of `Democracy and Freedom´ delivered to Nazi-Germany after 1945. Statistics of 1945 to 2004.

Aren´t we Germans lucky?

3.5 million murdered in allied prison camps.

3.5 million robbed of everything they owned, including their ancestral lands – German from 600 to 1500 years.

To this day (2010) over 1.5 million German are unaccounted for, having disappeared into the Soviet Gulag and/or American, British and French camps of certified horror, camps in which conditions were so horrid as to make the worst of the worst concentration camps look like vacation paradise.

During the ethnic cleansing, millions were raped, 240.000 (that is a quarter million women in age from 10 to 80) of them were raped to death, in addition tens of thousands of women committed suicide afterward, tens of thousands of German children were snatched from their mothers & given to infertile Polish couples. Polish, Czech and Yugoslavian concentration camps were established whose horrors are for all intents and purposes indescribable, again – making the worst of the worst German concentration camps look like vacation paradise.

Cultural goods of inestimable value were either deliberately destroyed or plundered - to be found today in amongst other places, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.

Those stolen by Americans are sometimes found on the International Art Markets, The magnificent works `Leda and the Swan´ by Paul Mathias Padua has disappeared, as has `The Tower of the Blue Horses´ painted by Franz Marc in 1911. BOTH are works of inestimable artistic value, expressions of the most sophisticated taste and are part of the German cultural heritage. Tens of thousands of pianos and other musical instruments were plundered.

Public and private libraries of inestimable value disappeared into the Soviet Union and/or into the rat holes of America and England. Entire factories, including the roofing materials, door and window frames, engineering plans and those design teams which were still alive, were kidnapped to the Soviet Union, England and the USA. The entirety of the `American´ space program was made possible by German scientists, patents and inventions.

The entire German patent office, a treasure trove of unequaled, quasi incomprehensible value was plundered by the USA. The German Central Bank was plundered of all German Gold reserves by the USA. Art Works of true magnificence were deliberately bull-dozed, run down by tanks, used as machine-gun targets and the rest was plundered and has disappeared into the rat-hole called the USA; a miniscule amount was returned in the years 1949, 1950 and 1951.
     
It can be said w/out fear of informed contradiction, that EVERY German classic car or motorcycle in EVERY American automotive museum is stolen property. It can be said w/out fear of informed contradiction that EVERY American, Russian, Japanese or Chinese `invention´ of the past 60 years is in fact a German patent stolen after 1945.

ALL German property (homes including furnishings, bank accounts etc) in the USA including huge, world leading chemical companies such as Bayer, Merck or Pfitzer were stolen by the US government and have never been compensated for.
     
ALL German properties, including the Deutsche Übersee Bank (German Overseas Bank) were plundered by the government of Chile in 1940 w/out even a pretense of justification; thousands upon thousands of Germans who had done nothing but to contribute to the well being of the Chilean nation had their lives destroyed; no admission, no excuse, no explanation has ever been forthcoming and today´s Chileans are as ignorant of these outrages as can be; the exact same thing can be said about every other South American country with an ethnic German minority, such as Brazil.

Interestingly, it is the areas of these countries developed against formidable odds by German immigrants 160 years ago which are the by far most beautiful and productive parts of these countries.

The ethnic German population of the Volga Republic was `relocated´ to Kazakhstan and other inhospitable places under circumstances so brutal that over 75% of these highly productive and civilized people died en route.

The entire ethnic German population which had settled the desolate region of Transylvania at the invitation of the Hungarian King 300 years ago, turning it into the show-place of the Balkans, were driven out, murdered and/or raped in 1944, `45 and `46.

Ditto the German settled regions in the former Yugoslavia. The entire Allach Fine Porcelain factory, producers of some of the most exquisite Fine China in the world was deliberately bull-dozed and that which remained was stolen by American soldiers. The same can be said of quasi every other world-renowned Fine China producer of which Germany had a grand total of 320 - vastly outperforming and out-creating any other nation on earth.

For the past 55 years abortion has resulted in the murder of about 15 million German children in their mothers womb – courtesy of `democracy and freedom´ and its eviscerating effect on all family, cultural and moral values. Drug abuse, a curse unknown to Germany until `democracy and freedom´ has cost the lives of about 120.000 German men and women during the past 55 years.

And in excess of 30.000 German men and women have been murdered by `asylum seekers´ from Greece, the former Yugoslavia, Albania, African `nations´ - for lack of a better word - and other Third World Sewers. Rampant pedophilia, homosexuality, sado-masochistic child pornography and other `sexual freedoms´ have completely destroyed the moral fabric of German society. NONE of these heinous democratic diseases of the mind had a chance of survival in pre- `democracy and freedom´ Germany and anyone caught in such activities was severely punished.

All told the amount of Germans murdered after receiving the precious gifts of `democracy and freedom´ amounts to a MINIMUM of 23.890.000 (23 Million, eight hundred and ninety) men and women of the demonstrably most productive, creative and beneficial population on earth.*

*And I quote the very prominent English 19th. Century educator and theologian Thomas Arnold:

`Germany is the cradle of law, virtue and freedom and it is a distinction of the first rank that we English belong to the family of German nations.´

*And I quote 19th.Century Scottish giant of letters, Thomas Carlyle:

`Germany is the Queen of the Continent´.

*And I Quote the American educator, historian and ambassador to Germany Andrew Dickson White in 1910:

` Germany is a country preyed upon by malevolent neighbors but still has become a great power in arms, art, the sciences and literature; it is a fortress of High Thought; a guardian of civilization, and a natural ally to every nation which seeks the better development of humanity.´

*And I quote the 19th Century French essayist and social critic Madame de Staele:

`Germany is the land of Thinkers and Poets.´

*And I quote English historian and essayist Nesta Webster:

`While other countries were out conquering empires, the Germans sat at home, smoking their pipes, listening to their music and reading their poets´.

Former Enemies Of Germany Talk About The German Military Of WW2

By Gerry Frederics ~ source (http://www.germancross.com/Former%20Enemies/Former%20Enemies.htm)

        I was surprised, to put it mildly, as I was going through the hallways of West Point, because there I saw photographs and art work, of a large number of German Waffen-SS soldiers. Included was the general of the Waffen-SS Felix Steiner, commander of the famed Wikinger Division. When I expressed my surprise, I was informed, that the tactics of the Waffen-SS were being taught not only in West Point, but in many countries, including Russia and Israel (!). When I told them I had been a member of the Waffen-SS, American officers questioned me eagerly about the SS and the Russians. I was treated as if I had been the hero of Guadalcanal.

I have had to revise my former derogatory remarks after I have seen the Germans up-close.
It is a fact, they fought bravely and honorably.

General Dwight Eisenhower, Commander in Chief, Europe.

As Commander in Chief, Eisenhower engineered the mass murder of about 1 million Germans after the war by deceitful means and must be regarded as one of the most horrible persons ever to have had a German (?) name. According to his West Point Yearbook of 1915, he was a Swedish Jew, which would explain his hideousness.

I have tremendous respect for the soldiers of the German Wehrmacht, who have astounded me throughout the war with their bravery and honorable behavior.

     General George Patton, the most famous of all allied 'fighting' generals. He died under mysterious circumstances after it became known he had favored the correct & fair treatment of German POW's. He held Eisenhower in unusual disdain, a fact known to "The Swedish Jew". Did that mass murderer have a hand in the weird death of this great American warrior?

    The soldiers of the German Wehrmacht are without a doubt the best soldiers in the world.

    Lord Alanbrooke, Marshal of the Royal Armed Forces of Britain.

    We have to admit that the Germans are outstanding soldiers with the finest training. Particularly their
    None-Commissioned-Officers Corp. Their discipline was unshakable.

    George C. Marshall, American General and statesman.

Several thousand military experts from all over the world were queried by the Israeli General Staff as to which army they considered to have been the best in WW2.

    The answers:
    1) The German Wehrmacht received 93 points.
    2) The Japanese army received 86 points.

    Which soldier had displayed the highest degree of bravery?
    1) The German 'Landser" (soldier).

    Which units (platoons, companies etc.) had been bravest?
    1) The German units had displayed more bravery than any other.

    Which branches in the various armies were the elite-troops
    1) The USA : US Navy
    2) England -: The commandos
    3) France---: The French Foreign Legion*
    4) Germany: The Waffen-SS**
    5) Japan----: The Navy
    6) Soviet Union: The Worker's Militias.

    All paratrooper units, regardless of nationality were considered to have been elite troops by the experts as well.

*According to the definitive study of the Foreign Legion (entitled: Inside The French Foreign Legion) she was, since the early 1900's made up to a large degree by Germans. Up to 44 % of all Legionaires were of German origin.

 **The Waffen-SS , at its maximum strength, had about 900.000 members of all nationalities, including Albanian & Russian troops. Those two however distinguished themselves by their cruelty, not by their bravery. The Albanians were so ineffective and untrustworthy, they were disbanded in January 1945, a time when the Germans needed every able-bodied man.

The Russian SS-commander Kaminsky was court-martialed and executed for war crimes by the German SS-authorities in Sept. 1944 and his unit was disbanded. The Germans were the only ones who enforced the rules of war against their own. The Russians, under Jewish leadership encouraged the committing of war crimes of the most horrific kind and the Americans, as well as the French, turned a blind eye, condoning criminal behavior (as long as it was directed against Germans or Italians) in their ranks. The Japanese lived by a different code altogether. To them war-crimes were part of warfare. They simply did not and I dare say, still do not, accept the concept.

                Other European SS troops (including the otherwise largely less-than-brave Italians!) were brave and loyal to the bitter end, many of them never giving up. Until the year 1947 (!) Lithuanian and Estonian SS troops fought a guerrilla war against the Russians on their home-turf. The Italian SS troops had fought honorably and bravely. They surrendered to Jew-inspired communist Italian partisans and were murdered to the last man with the full knowledge of the allied troops in the vicinity.

The Japanese are correct -- war is war.

Indeed, war is war, no matter how you slice it.
