In Memory of Professor Edmund Robert Forster September 3, 1878 – September 11, 1933
“An excellent scholar, an outstanding teacher, and the saviour of the sick” Ludwig Zürn
In 1973 US Naval Intelligence declassified a war time report that shed a remarkable new light on Hitler’s rise to power.
It also proved the starting point for my thirty year long search to discover the truth about the life and violent death of a German scientist named Professor Edmund Robert Forster.
For it was this eminent Berlin medical doctor and nerve specialist, highly decorated First War officer and fervent patriot who, in 1918, while treating an Austrian lance-corporal named Adolf Hitler for hysterical blindness unintentionally and from the best of motives opened this man’s eyes in a way no one could have foreseen. By doing so he changed for ever the course of world history.
This web-site, intended for historians, scholars and any readers interested in this period of history contains additional research material for which no space could be found in the book.
It is dedicated to the memory of Herr Professor Doktor Edmund Robert Forster who risked his life to tell the world the truth about the newly appointed Nazi Dictator – and paid the ultimate price for this courageous decision.
I have published the results of my research in a new book
