German children deportation
Two very interesting books about a piece of history no one acknowledges or talks about. “Orderly and Humane” by R. M. Douglas and “Forgotten Voices” by Ulrich Merten. Immediately after the Second World War, the victorious Allies authorized and helped to carry out the forced relocation of German speakers from their homes across central and southern Europe to Germany. The numbers were almost unimaginable—between 12,000,000 and 14,000,000 civilians, most of...
German flying saucer
An interesting backstory, original text included … Rätsel um „Fliegende Untertassen” The flying saucers mystery ! In 1970, Hans von Gottberg wrote in his book ‘DAS GROSSE BUCH DER BUNDESWEHR‘, (The big book of the German Army) on page 258 the following: For years, the international community is captivated with the enigmatic so-called “flying saucers” or “UFOs”. In 1947, for the first time many silver flashing discs with...
Ludwig Beck
Von Clausewitz  stated in his book “Vom Kriege” that war is only a continuation of state policy by other means. “Der Krieg ist … ein Akt der Gewalt, um den Gegner zur Erfüllung unseres Willens zu zwingen” War … is an act of violence intended to compel our opponent to fulfill our will … Violence, that is to say (for there is no moral force without the conception...
After six years of war, the Rhineland-Westphalian 6th Infantry Division was no more, its members either scattered to the winds or marching the long trek to Siberia. Those who had availed themselves of the opportunity offered by their general to attempt to escape to the West soon questioned the wisdom of their choice. As they climbed over mountains, swam across rivers, and slithered through forests, they found themselves...
German flying saucer - fliegende Untertasse
Exact 75 years ago – on 15 july 1941, Rudolf Schriever started the development of a jet driven flying saucer. Article published in magazine “Die Deutsche illustrierte” 1953 There is a man in Germany who can say much more about flying saucers than any other man on this planet. He lives in a small house near Bremerhaven and his place buzz with activity. Emissaries from American research institutes and...
Bernsteinzimmer
The amber room or “Bernsteinzimmer” in German is a lost treasure and work of art that is almost unknown in the English-speaking world, but as a mystery, could be compared to the disappearance of Amelia Erhart for Americans. The Bernsteinzimmer is just that, a room made of amber. Amber is a semi-precious stone formed from fossilized tree sap in an earlier geologic time frame. It washes up naturally...
Schriever device design
A closer look at the conventional German flying saucer project in Prag. And the Schriever-Habermohl project as mentioned in the German news magazine Die Deutsche illustrierte. You can read the article here: https://www.maier-files.com/flying-saucer-invented-in-germany/ Rudolf Schriever and his flying saucer project. Schriever was an engineer and test pilot. We couldn’t find much about Otto Habermohl but he was certainly an engineer. Another player in the saga is engineer Joseph Andreas Epp....
At 3 o’clock Sunday morning, November 4, 1956, I returned to the hotel in Vienna where I had been staying for three days. I paused to leave a call and exchange a few idle words with the hall porter. Nostalgic early morning music from the radio behind the telephone switchboard echoed through the empty lobby. I went to my room, and within a few minutes after getting into...
Otto Maier Saucer
We already looked at the conventional disc shaped aircraft, made in Germany. But it seems when digging into Otto Maier’s story and his engine that the properties of his saucer don’t match those of the conventional saucer types. So, what about field propulsion and electromagnetic propulsion (EMP) driven technologies?  EMP is the principle of accelerating an object by the utilization of a flowing electrical current and magnetic fields. And a field propulsion system...
Reinhard Gehlen BND
A backstory on Reinhard Gehlen and the fear of his “Now it can be told”-bookReinhard Gehlen, founder and head of Germany’s Bundesnachrichtendienst or BND, the Federal intelligence service in the days of the cold war, has enjoyed a publicity remarkable for one who, ostensibly (not to say ostentatiously), has fled the limelight. For in the days of his power he always moved in the shadows. He invariably wore...
portrait Ernst Jünger
Memories bear traits of an inverse causality. The world, as an effect, resembles a tree with a thousand branches, but as memory it leads downwards into the tangled network of the roots. When I confront memories, it often seems like gathering a bundle of seaweed from the ocean—the tiny bit visible from afar, when slowly dragged up into the light, reveals an extensive system of filaments. —Ernst Jünger,...
surfacing U-boat Scotland WW2
  U-boat missions in Scotland. The Maier files story mentions a special U-boat mission into Scotland (Maier files Unternehmen Kelch). Could there be any trace found about such secret mission, and were there any German submarines spotted around early December or late November 1939 at Carradale Bay, Firth of Clyde or the isle of Arran? The Firth of Clyde forms a large area of coastal water sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean...
