Inventors Under the Swastika

Erfinder unterm Hakenkreuz

National Socialist times saw a succession of flamboyant and talented inventors and pioneers, who on the one hand took advantage of the opportunities under the Nazis, and on the other hand were exploited by the Nazis for their own purposes. Gunther Burstyn (inventor of a forerunner of the tank), Ernst Heinkel (aeronautical pioneer), Viktor Schauberger (inventor of the ĞRepulsineğ flying saucer) and Felix Wankel (inventor of the Wankel engine) all have one thing in common: although none of them had a university education, their names are inextricably linked with innovation and technical progress, even today. Mostly before and during the First World War, they began to explore new ideas and technologies for tanks, engines and aeronautics that were far ahead of their time.
