The whole series of shameful and strange Nazi conspiracies that were supposed to conquer the world and which triggered a large part of the aggressions of the Second World War are not yet generally known. In this surprising report, we learn some really worrying facts about the Nazi conspiracies in World War II, as well as some really dodgy NSDAP businesses and offshoots that disrupted the Allied war effort.
10th Special search list G.B., Special Search List
surprise. The amalgamation of James Bond film tropes with Indiana Jones-style plots created nothing less than a Nazi hit list for Britain listing countless Britons who were to be arrested by the invading Nazis. The German SS brought the little black book called Sonderfahndungsliste G.B. outlining the dark plan. An invasion of Britain was proposed and published with the code name company Sea Lion or Operation Sea Lion and the book. The " Black Book " described in detail what should be. The list also documented organizations that were classified as opposed to National Socialism and represented elements of resistance that should be suppressed. The list was created as an attachment to another invasion document, the information booklet G.B. . (United Kingdom Information Brochure), which describes British politics, legislation, demography and industry in great detail. The Black Book was created under the auspices of the Reich Security Main Office under the direction of Reinhard Heydrich and contained 2,820 names ranging from the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill to exiled German expatriates.
. 9 Nazi station in what is now Canada
It may come as a great surprise that the Nazis made it into what is now the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, which joined the Canadian Confederation after the war. Nonetheless, there was a good reason for Reich intelligence to go further, and submarine technology made it possible. Meteorological data was critical to the planning of military operations during World War II. Certain types of operations required clear weather. others depended on the cloud cover. With the Allies at the head, the German secret service needed intelligence information on the North American coast. The German automatic weather station "Kurt" was secretly built on October 22, 1943 with the help of submarine workers on Labrador's Hutton peninsula and only discovered after the hostilities had ended.
Two submarines were scheduled to ship two units to North America, but the Kurt radio station was the only successful installation when one of the submarines sank off the coast of Norway. Weighing 221 pounds, the devices designed by Siemens and known as "Wetter-Funkgerät Land" transmitted data at 3-hour intervals with 3940 kH radio. The electricity came from Ni-Cad batteries that would last six months. U-537 under Captain Peter Schrewe carried the meteorologist Dr. Kurt Sommermeyer and his assistant Walter Hildebrant. A collision with an iceberg on the way almost ended the trip, but a successful installation was achieved. The installation took place under armed guard while a fake Canadian company label and American cigarettes were placed on site to target potential saboteurs.
. 8 North American Holocaust Plans
There were shockingly detailed plans to trigger atrocities in North America comparable to European deportations from death camps. The writer Heinz Kloss, a researcher and linguist in Nazi Germany, wrote the 137-page book entitled "Statistics, Press and Organizations of Judaism in the United States and Canada" (19659008) USA and Canada ) in 1944.
The "Handbook" is a disturbingly thorough catalog of Jewish residents of both countries and reflects the National Socialist plans if they gained control of the continent. The book is very rare and one of the few printed copies was in the personal possession of the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. This specimen was released in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in January 2019 after being purchased for the Canadian National Archives by government librarians who bought it online.
. 7 The largest convicted spy ring in American history
The spy ring operated by South African-born Nazi sympathizer Frederick "Fritz" Joubert Duquesne in Duquesne was the largest case of espionage that resulted in convictions in American history. German spies working for the interests of the Nazis did everything from tracking Atlantic shipping with an airline to opening a restaurant in the United States to get information from customers. German activists planned various attacks, but were stopped with the invaluable help of a German-American double agent who worked for the United States under the name William Sebold, who despised the violent goals of the Nazi regime.
Before the United States entered World War II, Nazi spies were arrested in a large group of 33 members. Six days after Pearl Harbor, all 33 spies were found guilty or convicted, including ringleaders Duquesne. The group's terms of imprisonment were over 300 years. The spies planned a number of activities, including the ignition of American factories, and one even brought bomb components to Sebold's front office in the United States. As a result of the conquests, the United States declared war on Germany and trusted that the German spy network would be threatened on US soil out of the way.
. 6 Operation Griffin
American war efforts were often hard enough to be exposed to direct attacks, but Nazi activists disguised as American soldiers caused chaos beyond description. In "Operation Greif" Otto Skorzeny disguises a small collection of English-speaking Germans in captured American uniforms, provides them with fake documents from the US Army and sends them on an undercover mission behind enemy lines. Within a few days, the deceptive soldiers had successfully directed tank and convoy traffic onto the wrong roads, destroyed ammunition dumps, changed traffic signs and destroyed telephone lines – all under the Allies' nose. Despite great concerns, Adolf Hitler had insisted that the malfunction would not work, and asked the notorious, Austrian-born SS Obersturmbannführer Skorzeny, a superior Nazi (ironically with a Polish heritage).
Skorzeny received unlimited powers to accomplish the mission. Despite concerns about violations of the Geneva Convention, American prisoners of war were stripped of their uniforms and defrauders sent across enemy lines, although wearing the other side's uniform would likely result in a summary execution if one of the soldiers was captured. The paranoia on the American side led to intensive interrogations and questions that should only be known to Americans. The fraudsters' perfect English and convincing American accents further hindered counterintelligence. Even British troops were sometimes involved in the interrogation when they did not answer correctly and were arrested for a short time.
. 5 The Nazi Businesses
It The idealized and simplified view of many people on world history and the Second World War might surprise that the black and white demarcations between Axis and Allies, good and bad, were sometimes seriously confused Because you guessed it, money agreements, deals, and supply chains collided with political and military agendas during World War II. While it was apparently treacherous, some shocking deals and plans were drawn up between actual Nazis and companies based in the United States and other Allied nations. War effort was Thomas Watson of IBM, who chose a medal from Hitler to adopt a census from National Socialist Germany and attempt to keep control over the German subsidiary of IBM Dehomag.
One fact that may surprise many is that Henry Ford of Ford Motor Company was admired by Hitler to the point where he was publicly praised by Hitler and Pius in Hitler's book Mein Kampf  even cited as an example of anti-Jewish business behavior. General Motors Company also maintained economic ties with the Nazi regime. During the war, American investments, business alliances, and trade agreements actually helped, rather than hampering the Nazi war effort, while delivering American goods and troops to the Allied war effort. Ironic? Yes. Good? Of course not. Predictable given that companies are often notorious for working with dictatorships? Absolutely.
. 4 Operation Pastorius
Operation Pastorius named after the first German settlement in Pennsylvania, was a horrific Nazi conspiracy on US soil that was thwarted by the FBI's transfer of participants and subsequent arrests. In June 1942, two German submarines arrived two days apart, the first in Long Island, New York, the second in Florida, near Jacksonville. A total of eight prospective saboteurs were Germans who lived in the United States but had returned to Germany and had been trained under the German Lieutenant Waltercap, a prominent Nazi agitator in the United States, before returning to Germany. As part of Abwehr II, a German intelligence agency for acts of sabotage, on the outskirts of Berlin, had set up a "School of Sabotage".
The eight participants were headed by George John Dasch, who had worked in the restaurant business in America. After both submarines had landed, explosives were stowed away and plans for bombing Hell & # 39; s Gate Bridge, Newark Penn Station and New York water supply, and canal locks in Cincinnati and St. Louis, were reviewed The aluminum factories in Philadelphia were planned targets. Dasch, however, tried to move to the United States and turned to the sabotage team. However, President Herbert Hoover was determined to present the arrest as an FBI arrest. Most of the team were executed, while Dasch was sentenced to 30 years in prison and released after six years. Together with his conspiracy colleague Berger, who was originally sentenced to life, this was pardoned on the condition of being deported to Germany.
. 3 The German-American Confederation
The horrors of National Socialism are generally seen as a unique manifestation of fascism in Nazi Germany, but in fact, Nazism was brewing to a truly terrifying extent in the United States. The FBI had the daunting task of overseeing the seedy actions of the growing German-American alliance under the direction of a certain Fritz Julius Kuhn. The club-like organization was launched by Kuhn, a Bavarian infantry veteran of the First World War who was very impressed by Hitler, but emigrated to the United States in 1928 in search of financial stability. He soon worked for Henry Ford.
Kuhn was in addition to joining the Friends of New Germany a Chicago organization focused on supporting the Nazi ideology for which he worked as an officer. The organization had been approved by the German Vice Leader Rudolf Hess. With this start in fascist "activism", Kuhn was working to create a monster that would create the German-American Confederation, which on February 20, 1939 filled Madison Square Garden with a full-blown Nazi rally on American soil. Incredible 22,000 Nazi agitators went crazy on site and raised awareness of the problem of the native Nazis in America.
. 2 Operation Long Jump
It is not known that Hitler hatched a conspiracy during the Second World War to murder American President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. as the "big three" Allied leaders. The three attended the Iranian Tehran conference in 1943 to discuss the state of war from the Allied perspective. In the meantime, Hitler wanted them all to be dead or captured, and formulated a plan that focuses on assassins jumping into the desert near Tehran to kill the three world leaders. The plot was directed by the notorious SS officer Otto Skorzeny, who was chosen by Ernst Kaltenbrunner at Hitler's request to try.
However, it should not be planned that a Soviet intelligence officer who pretends to be a Wehrmacht officer, Gevork Andreevich Vartanian, a talented Soviet intelligence officer who started his career at the age of 16, should act as an intelligence officer. Vartanian and his team were able to arrest all Nazi conspirators who traveled with the camel after landing. After their arrest, the conspirators were forced to turn to their Nazi leaders. Vartanian was awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union for his services to thwarting the plan. It is worth noting that Vartanian was supported by his wife Goar Vartanian in preventing the long jump operation. Vartanian, who died in January 2012 and met Winston Churchill's granddaughter in 2007, has also been mentioned in numerous interviews, as well as in book and film reports about the plot.
. 1 Operation Salam
Operation Salam delivered two ultimately incapable German spies Johannes Eppler and Hans Gerd Sandstede to British-occupied Egypt to help the African armored army advance the empire. In 1942, the defense planned an operation under the leadership of the Hungarian desert researcher László Almásy, who was to bring the two German spies to Egypt. This required a treacherous crossing of the Libyan desert.
Months were spent preparing for the mission, while overtaking the spies at checkpoints took a lot of excitement. The spies were deposed, Almásy returned safely to Axis-occupied Libya, and the two spies appeared to be wasting money on the entertainment mission, especially romantic matters. The spies have not really managed to spy or even contact the German intelligence service. The spies were eventually arrested by the British, but spared execution. Almásy, however, was considered a hero of the empire and received a first-class iron cross from Erwin Rommel and was promoted to major.
