The Hunt for Martin Bormann (Episode #102Z)

KQED Life: Thu, Oct 18, 2012 -- 2:00 AM

Martin Bormann was vital to Hitler. Bormann made Hitler and the Third Reich rich through thinly veiled extortion schemes such as The Hitler Endowment Fund of German Industry. Bormann, Hitler's doctor Stumpfegger and Artur Axmann (the Head of the Hitler Youth) all left the bunker in Berlin together after Hitler's suicide on April 30, 1945. After Axmann left them at the Lehrter Station, Bormann and Stumpfegger disappeared. In 1972, workmen found two skeletons at the site of the Lehrter station. Analysis of the bones suggested they were Bormann and Stumpfegger. In 1998, a skull was subjected to a DNA test and proclaimed to be that of Bormann. However the skull was found to be full of a type of red clay which is only found in Paraguay. Where he went and how the body returned, still generates controversy.

Hunting The Nazi Rocket Scientists (Episode #101Z)

KQED Life: Thu, Oct 18, 2012 -- 1:00 AM

Brilliant German scientists worked for the Nazi regime in the 1930s and 1940s, creating the V2 ballistic missile. When the war ended, the U.S. was desperate to get its hands on these scientists before the Russians did. They wanted their expertise; the need for military superiority overrode any concerns of bringing these criminals to justice.
