In a previous post, we noted collaboration between Josef Mengele–the infamous “Angel of Death” of Auschwitz–and the U.S. government, via Paraguayan dictator Alfredo Stroessner. Some of our discussion concerning “The Oswald Institute of Virology” might seem to some listeners to be “a long way from home,” so to speak. In FTR#1147, we noted that elements of U.S. intelligence appear to have protected Mengele, as part of their clandestine sponsorship of the postwar Nazi diaspora. We highlight this because Mengele was not an isolated example, but rather characteristic of a much larger and broad-based phenomenon. “. . . . By July 1945 Josef Mengele had been captured and identified at an allied prisoner-of-war camp. Forty years later an eyewitness told a congressional committee how guards knew Mengele’s name, and also the general nature of his crimes as doctor, experimenter, and executioner at Auschwitz.’ Also in 1985, the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles released documents obtained from the U.S. Army under the Freedom of Information Act, according to which Mengele “may have been arrested by U.S. authorities in Austria in 1947 and subsequently released. ‘ . . . .” In FTR#664, we noted testimony at the Nuremberg trials to the effect that Mengele filled out paperwork before his infamous experiments on twins, a copy of which went to the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, which received a great deal of funding from the Rockefeller Foundation. Mengele’s posting at Auschwitz was due to a superior/colleague at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, who suggested that it would be a good career move, as highlighted in, among other programs, FTR#908.
