COMMENT: We have discussed the Max Planck institute in past posts and programs. (It was originally called the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute and was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, in considerable measure.) A major epicenter of Nazi science, it was the academic foundation for Josef Mengele’s ghastly Auschwitz experiments on twins.

In the 1950 Madrid circular letter crafted by the Nazi government in exile, we find reinforcing argument that the Max Planck Institute remained an epicenter for scientific and technological development for the Underground Reich.

The entire text of the Madrid circular is available on pp. 209-232 of Germany Plots with the Kremlin.

Germany Plots with the Kremlin by T.H. Tetens; Henry Schuman [HC]; 1953; p. 231.

EXCERPT: . . . . Though we are powerless at present, we have nonetheless never permitted ourselves to be disarmed spiritually and scientifically. German scholars are working unremittingly in Germany as well as abroad on great scientific plans for the future. Favorable circumstances enabled us to keep alive the great research organization of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute through a change of name. First-class scientists are working in the fields of interplanetary navigation (“Raumschiff fahrt”), chemistry and on cosmic rays. Our scientists, unhampered in their work, have sufficient time and are planning day and night for Germany’s future. It is the German spirit (“Geist”) that creates modern weapons and that will bring surprising changes in the present relationship of forces. . . .


One comment for “The Underground Reich and the Max Planck Institute”

  1. The Max Planck Institute is activly involved in splitting off South Sudan:



    What is Germany’s Interest in South Sudan?
    Vladislav GULEVICH | 16.01.2014 | 00:00

    The division of Sudan, which until very recently was still a united country, and the separation of South Sudan from it (with the capital of Juba) is a project that has received active support from Berlin. And not just political support, but programmes to create government agencies and an administrative apparatus in the newly established state. It has been reported that international lawyers from the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg were involved in creating the constitution of South Sudan, that the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation has invited Sudanese separatists to Germany, that various German ministries have provided South Sudanese authorities with consulting services, and that German soldiers have been in South Sudan since 2005.


    Berlin’s policy regarding Sudan should generally be in keeping with the policies of Washington and London, namely: the partition of a formerly united country and the separation of South Sudan should not just mean the separation of a large area with considerable strategic importance from Khartoum, but also a change in the ownership of a significant part of Sudan’s oil resources. In this instance, the interests of Germany, the US and Great Britain are the same – these Western powers are eager to «protect» East Africa from penetration by China… Today, more than half of Sudan’s oil is being exported to the People’s Republic of China, and Chinese workers and engineers in Sudan are no longer an uncommon sight.


    It must be admitted that Khartoum gave the West a number of reasons to intervene during the conflict, carrying out policies of Arabisation and Islamisation in South Sudanese provinces inhabited by Christians. Washington, London and Berlin are now positioning themselves as fighters for the rights of the South Sudanese population. In truth, however, prolonged interethnic conflicts are tearing apart many African countries, and far from all of these have been awarded the «good fortune» of becoming an object of concern for Western proponents of democracy. South Sudan was «lucky» because it has oil.

    Berlin’s awareness of East Africa is not a new trend in Germany’s foreign policy, but a long-forgotten old one. At the end of the 19th century, German East Africa included Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi. Today, these countries are members of the pro-Western East African Community, whose zone of influence is expected to pull in South Sudan.

    However, German experts are not sure whether it is worth Berlin interfering in events in this part of the world. South Sudan is quickly sinking into the abyss of an intertribal war. There is no guarantee that the conflict will not spread to neighbouring countries, with the whole of East Africa plunging into an abyss of drawn-out armed conflicts.
