In 1998, 29 year old Eric Bermen of Florida began dating a local girl whose 6'- 4" ninety year old father possessed "the largest hands I'd ever shaken," he said. Over time, "Big Ed," as he was known locally, revealed to the younger man that his real name was Otto Skorzeny, legendary SS (Schutzstaffel) commando of World War II fame, personal bodyguard to Adolf Hitler, and subsequent life-long CIA operative.But that was just the beginning.
In the months prior to Skorzeny's death in December of 1999,
Skorzeny revealed to Berman some of the most mind boggling information ever made available concerning the whereabouts and activities of major personalities of the Third Reich
who were either declared dead by historians or otherwise reported to have been living in undisclosed locations abroad .
Skorzeny's lifelong circle of intimate associates-many living in the United States- included Martin Bormann, Josef Mengele, Alois Brunner, Walter Rauff, and Reinhard Gehlen. An even more surprising revelation from Skorzeny, however, involved two domestic Nazis operatives, both well known to the American public: Prescott Sheldon Bush and his "son", George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st President of the United States.
To buttress his story, Skorzeny produced a shoebox filled with over one hundred photographs spanning a period of more than sixty years and gave them to Berman. The photos were of the usual family poses taken at weddings, anniversaires, holidays, or family reunions in the decades between the 1930's and the 1990's, but what made these photos highly extraordinary was the identity of the individuals seen within those photographs. The shoebox photos show Otto Skorzeny posing with the above named Third Reich personalites, along with additional photographs showing Skorzeny posing with Prescott Bush, his wife, Dorothy Walker Bush, and their son, George Herbert Walker Bush.
To say that Berman was in the "right place, at the right time" and was handed what may turn out to be the biggest story to ever come down the pike, is the understatement of the century.
Following Skorzeny's death on December 31, 1999, Bermen gathered additional information about Skorzeny's Nazi cohorts and put the entire story -together with 60 or 70 of Skorzeny's shoe box photos- into a copyrighted unpublished manuscript called The Bush Connection.
Skorzeny told Bermen that his motive for revealing his information was to exact revenge against George Bush, along with his former Nazi
cohorts, for cheating him out of large sums of money during his lifetime. Skorzeny apparently knew he was going to die and felt that Eric Bermen- who is Jewish-would get out the story (it's hard to know for certain if this is the true and only motivation for Skorzeny's revelations. While it sounds logical and typical of human behavior, you would think that Skorzeny would be concerned about his wife and kids after he was gone. It's possible that the revenge angle may be the cover story for a much deeper plot. Considering the vast power that Martin Bormann and the Bormann Organization held with many of the biggest corporations around the globe (over 750), it could be that Bormann and the other aging Nazis may want the story out, as a testament to their Triumph of the Will, so to speak. The late Paul Manning suggested such a recognition/legacy scenario in his 1981 book, Martin Bormann, Nazi in Exile, but this is merely speculation on my part. Revenge alone may have been Skorzeny's primary motivation).
Some of the more explosive highlights of Skorzeny's revelations include:
1. the true identity and Nazi-planned subversive mission of George Herbert Walker Bush, 41st President of the United States;
alleged to have been brought into America (with Skorzeny as his body guard) and covertly adopted by Trading-with-The-Enemy convicted Prescott Bush. Skorzeny claimed that GHW Bush's real birth name was George H. Scherff, Jr., son of George Scherff, Sr., German born assistant to inventor Nikola Tesla.
Young George allegedly spent his first years in America snooping around Tesla's lab, helping his father (George Scherff Sr.) in the 1930's steal or glean whatever they could of Tesla's work and report back to Germany. Tesla had casually remarked to an artisan couple named Rey who had recently emigrated to the United States, of the mischievous and devious prying nature of a "little monkey" around his lab whom he had dubbed "curious George." This character would later become the basis of the children's book series, "Curious George"
2. Skorzeny's role (with Reinhard Gehlen) in the assassination of Nikola Tesla (suffocation) on January 6, 1943 after tricking Tesla on January 5 into revealing the full details of his most important discoveries and then stealing his most valuable inventions, along with the contents of his safe, which were delivered to Hitler,
3. the faked April 1945 "suicide" of Hitler in the Berlin bunker (corroborating the 1948 CIA interrogation of Gestapo Chief Heinrich Mueller, the Nordon Report, and the Russian 1946 Investigative Committee report to Stalin)
4. Skorzeny's pivotal role in consolidating the intelligence assets of the Nazi Gestapo and the Nazi-infiltrated OSS (Office of Strategic Services) into the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in 1947, working with George Herbert Walker Bush (Nazi infiltrator George H. Scherff, Jr.), Nazi SS spy master Reinhard Gehlen, "Wild Bill" Donovan (compromised), and fifth columnist, Allen Foster Dulles. Skorzeny claimed central responsibility for
setting up the Odessa operation to surreptitiously relocate 50,000 (FIFTY THOUSAND) Nazis into North and South America with CIA complicity and protection,
5. Skorzeny's claim that Reinhard Gehlen, Josef Mengele, and George HW Bush directly participated in JFK's assassination
and other Nazi-inspired plots which I won't list here, but are explored more completely in Eric Bermen's The Bush Connection CD (below).
Don Nicoloff published an extremely thorough and well researched treatise in two parts in April 2007 in the Idaho Observer titled "Deathbed Confessions, photos support claims that George H. Scherf(f), Jr., was the 41st U.S. president" ) Don takes the Bermen/Skorzeny information to a much higher level of investigative research. In a recent phone conversation, Don told me that he was working on the Bush/Walker genealogy deception for nearly a year before discovering Eric Berman's astounding information. With Skorzeny's revelations, he was able to nail down many loose ends and has put together the most damming evidence to date that Prescott Sheldon Bush and George Herbert Walker Bush (and other members of the Bush/Walker clans) are not who they claim to be and are in fact German born infiltrators and fifth columnists secreted into America. The Skorzeny photo seen at the top of Don Nicoloff's article may prove to be the most important photo of the entire Skorzeny collection; perhaps the Photo of the Century. It's shows a "family" group pose likely taken in a Bavarian or Alpine lodge location owned by the Scherff family in the 1930's that purports to include Martin Bormann, Reinhard Gehlen, Josef Mengele, Otto Skorzeny, George H. Scherff, Jr (GHW Bush), Prescott Bush, "Mother" Scherff , and likely Dorothy Walker Bush (I will present another article, Part 2, dealing with the personalities seen within this photograph).
If you search the name "Otto Skorzeny" on the internet, historical archives will indicate that he died in Madrid, Spain in 1975, but .Skorzeny told Berman that the date of his supposed death in 1975 was faked by the CIA, as were the supposed "deaths" of many of the Third Reich's most notable names. The Third Reich intelligence apparatus, under General Reinhard Mueller, towards the end of the war, faked many "deaths" as well, in anticipation of losing World War II. Martin Bormann went so far as to have a look-alike prisoner in one of the Nazi concentration camps fitted with the exact dental work that Bormann had so that they could use this person's body to fake the "forensic dental evidence" of Bormann's death-which is exactly what was perpetrated in the news in 1972 and again in 1998.
No central figure of the Third Reich has generated more speculation and controversy than Reichleiter Martin Bormann. He proved to be the most cunning, capable, and intelligent master chess player of the Third Reich. Towards the latter half of the war, no one could get to see Hitler without Bormann's approval. Hitler invested his total trust in Bormann alone and assigned to Bormann full control of the Third Reich in his Last Will signed in the final days at the Berlin bunker.
Bormann came to realize that Germany could not win the war and made extensive preparations to export Third Reich brain power, personnel, stolen assets and technological secrets out of Germany before the allies could seize them.
Comparing Third Reich Photos of Bormann to Skorzeny's Photos
The first three rows of photos below are official Third Reich photos taken off the internet of Martin Bormann in the 1930's and 1940's in which I've cropped Bormann's head to fill most of the frame. Following these nine photographs, there are five rows of head-cropped photographs from Otto Skorzeny's shoe box
collection available from Eric Bermen's CD that Skorzeny claimed are photos of the same Martin Bormann. In each of Skorzeny's photos, I cropped out and magnified the head area alone of the man that Skorzeny claims is Martin Bormann. Skorzeny told Bermen that Bormann used the alias of "Ed Kobylarz".
The first thing you should note is that a smiling Martin Bormann presents a much different appearance than a closed mouth, unsmiling, serious, Aryan tough guy pose that the Nazis wanted to project in their official photographs. The last photo (3rd row) of the official, Third Reich Bormann photos shows Bormann smiling while standing next to Hitler and looking down at the papers in Hitler's hands. Notice how the appearance of his teeth -especially the gaps between his teeth (the central gap being the widest)- seem to match perfectly the gaps seen in the teeth of Bormann as a boy of 10 or 11 years of age in the first row of Skorzeny's cropped photos.
In the two Skorzeny cropped black and white photos of Bormann with glasses, you will notice that this man looks YOUNGER than the Third Reich Bormann of the 1930's and 1940's, however, Skorzeny told Bermen that Mengele and Bormann had multiple facelifts and plastic surgeries and this may account for the more youthful appearance. The gaps in Bormann's teeth seem to remain unchanged.
You can decide for yourself whether Skorzeny's photos are of the Reichleiter or not, but you should bear in mind that most of Skorzeny's photos which included Bormann, also included Skorzeny, Reinhard Gehlen, Alois Brunner, Josef Mengele and Walter Rauff. Skorzeny, Brunner, and Gehlen are easy to recognize from their Nazi era photographs and apparently have not had any plastic surgery done to alter their appearance. Mengele, Rauff and Bormann are harder to identify with certainty from their Nazi era photos. All dates indicated for the Skorzeny photos are taken from Eric Bermen's CD, The Bush Connection. I cannot guarantee that they are accurate.The 21st century dates shown for Bormann photos after Skorzeny's death in December of 1999
don't make sense to me, but I'm reporting what's stated on the Bermen CD.

[Bormann's paradoxically youthful appearance following World War II:
Judging from the black and white photos seen above, Bormann seems to look much younger than his Nazi era photographs. Compare his wedding day picture holding his new bride (the original photo has automobiles in the background that look to be of mid 1950 to late 1950 vintage) and the 1930s Christmas party. photo seen in the row immediately above. There is approximately a 20 year difference between the late 1930s Christmas party photo and the wedding day photo of the late 1950s, yet Bormann looks to be about the same age.
Eric Bermen has tried to account for this paradox by speculating that Bormann was born closer to 1920 rather than 1900, but that's not possible based on reasons given below. Bermen also mentions plastic surgery courtesy of the CIA and that's always possible. However, Al Bielek may have provided the key to this mystery by mentioning in his lectures that the top players in the Third Reich had access to alien-based age regression technology as early as the mid 1930s (as well as flying saucers). This shouldn't be too hard to believe since Frenchman Antoine Prioré (with French government underwriting) had developed an age regression machine (based on reverse phase conjugation) in the late 60s and early 70s that could reverse disease conditions in animals (and later humans) by reverse aging the cells of the body back to an earlier point in time, when the cells were free of the disease. If you were to subject an entire human body to this technology, the entire body would naturally move back in time to an earlier point of youth. I'm only speculating of course, but I believe this is what happened to both Bormann and Mengele at least, as they both look much, much younger than their chronological age. Mind you, Bormann and Mengele are likely still alive today, in the year 2008. They would both be around 108 years old....Ken]

Eric Bermen's Role
We wouldn't be seeing these amazing photographs, nor be privy to Skorzeny's incredible revelation, had Skorzeny not revealed this information to Eric Bermen. Skorzeny's revelations and photos present a sea change in our
historical perceptions of what actually happened to these top echelon players of the Third Reich.
Eric spent his time between December 31, 1999, the given date of Skorzeny's death, and 2005, the year he produced the photos, to gather further details about Skorzeny's Third Reich pals. In some cases, Eric has ventured speculations concerning the birth dates of Bormann or Mengele, where he jumps to illogical conclusions. For instance, Eric speculates that Bormann was born closer to 1920, rather than 1900 (official birth date
June 17, 1900, Wegeleben, Prussia, Germany).
That's impossible, as Bormann was imprisoned in 1924 (for one year) along with Rudolf Hess for the brutal murder of Bormann's elementary school teacher, Walther Kadow.
(In checking Bermen's text concerning Bormann from page 36 of his pdf, against material posted to the internet, I noticed that Eric often cuts and paste the text from other internet articles into his own, so you don't know what Bermen originated and what he copied. As a writer whose words have often been plagiarized by internet copy cats, I have little patience with people who do that. So in fairness to the original author, I've posted the original source material below Bermen's page 36 account on Bormann
Al Bielek indicated in his lectures that the top Nazis had access to alien rejuvenation technology since the mid 1930s. It's not an accident of Nature that all of Skorzeny's Third Reich cohorts, including Adolf Hitler (alias "William Coates"), were alive and kicking in the late 20th century when many of these photos were taken.
When you see Part 3 of the Skorzeny revelation centering on Josef Mengele, you will be amazed to see that Mengele looks like a man in his late 50s or early 60s from photos that were taken as late as 2003.
Excerpt about Martin Bormann from page 36 of the The Bush Connection:
"Hitler’s plan was to have young SS nazis run the Third Reich, in hopes that they would live long
enough to start the Fourth Reich or New World Order in America in the year 2004.(28)
Bormann was one of Hitler’s “Four
Horsemen of the Apocalypse”, George Bush, Mengele, and Gehlen were the other three. Skorzeny was the unofficial Fifth“Horseman.”(29) The son of a former Prussian regimental Sergeant-Major who later became a post-office employee, Bormann
dropped out of school to work on a farming estate in Mecklenburg. Bormann joined the rightist Rossbach Freikorps in
Mecklenburg and was connected with the so-called ‘Femme’ murders. He was diligent, adaptable and efficient, began his
silent, imperceptible rise to the center of the power apparatus, slowly acquiring master of the bureaucratic mechanism and
Hitler’s personal trust. He developed and administered the Adolf Hitler Endowment Fund of German industry, a huge fund of‘voluntary’ contributions by successful business entrepreneurs to the Fuhrer, which Bormann then reallocated as gifts to
almost all the top Party functionaries.
By the end of 1944, Bormann was virtually Hitler’s deputy and his closest collaborator, showing an uncanny ability to exploit
his weaknesses and personal peculiarities in order to increase his own power. Always in attendance to the Fuhrer, he took
care of tiresome administrative detail and skillfully steered Hitler into approval of his own schemes, Bormann acquired the
inside track for displacing dangerous rivals like Goering, Goebbels, Speer and even Himmler whose access to the Fuhrer was
controlled by Bormann.
Bormann exploited his position of trust to build a Chinese wall against reality, in which Hitler could indulge
his fantasies and in which more sensible, conciliatory proposals from other members of the Party, were screened from him.
Bormann reduced everything to simple, administrative formulae that freed Hitler from the burdens of paper work. He drew up
his appointments calendar and decided whom he should see and whom he should not. Hitler rewarded these and other
services by the trust he placed in Bormann, whom he once called ‘my most loyal Party comrade’. He was made executive
head of the Volkssturm, the desperate levy en masse of the German civilian population organized as the Allies stood poised
to invade the Reich.
By now virtually the secret ruler of Germany, Bormann did not cease his Machiavellian bureaucratic intrigues against his
rivals. As a result of his machinations Hitler dismissed Goering; and Himmler’s influence was severely curtailed. It was the
indispensable Bormann, the most mysterious and sinister figure in the Third Reich, who signed Hitler’s political testament,
who acted as the witness to his marriage to Eva Braun and (supposedly) watched his Fuhrer commit suicide in the Chancellery bunker.
Ordered by Hitler ‘to put the interests of the nation before his own feelings’ and to save himself, Bormann left the Fuhrerbunker
on 30 April 1945. Accounts of what happened afterwards vary widely. According to Erich Kempka (Hitler’s chauffeur),
Bormann was killed trying to cross the Russian lines by an anti-tank shell which hit the tank in which they were trying to
escape, causing it to burst into flames. Kempka, who was temporarily blinded at the time, claimed nonetheless to have seen
Bormann’s dead body. Hitler Youth Leader, Artur Axmann, on the other hand, believed that Bormann committed suicide and
claimed to have seen Bormann’s body on 2 May 1945 in the Invalidenstrasse, north of the River Spree in Berlin.
Doubts, however, have persisted and numerous sightings of Bormann have been reported, beginning in 1946 when his
presence in a North Italian monastery was announced. In the same year, his wife Gerda (a rabid Nazi and daughter of
Supreme Party Judge, Walter Buch) died of cancer in South Tyrol, though his ten children survived the war. It was then
alleged that Bormann had escaped (like other loyal Nazis) via Rome to South America.
Rumored to have settled in Argentina
where he was living secretly as a millionaire, allegedly spotted in Brazil and also in Chile, Bormann’s traces proved as elusive
as the anonymity in which he first rose to power. Having been sentenced to death in absentia at Nuremberg on October 1,
1946, he was formally pronounced dead by a West German court in April 1973, but his precise fate remains unknown. (30)
The C.I.A's story in nonsense. He is alive & they are still protecting him!
Bormann is still alive and funneling billions of stolen Jewish Holocaust dollars into anti-freedom, anti-Jewish, anti-black, prolife,
anti-gun, conservative New World Order Republican campaigns, like Bush Jr. Also, neo-nazi fundamentalist, conservative,
right-wing, Christian Coalition, anti-freedom groups like the abortion doctor killer supporters “Operation Rescue”,“The Brotherhood of Aryan Nations “organized crime” hate group,” the KKK and C.I.A. sponsored Al Qaeda Terrorist Cells.(31)"
Date of Birth: June 17, 1900
Place of Birth: Halberstadt, Germany
Position: Head of the Party Chancellery and private secretary of the Fuhrer
Place of Death: Unknown
Date of Death: 1972
Martin was a son of a former Prussian regimental sergeant-major who later became a post-office employee, Bormann dropped out of school to work on a farming estate in Mecklenburg. After serving briefly as a cannoneer in a field artillery regiment at the end of World War I, Bormann subsequently joined the rightist Rossbach Freikorps in Mecklenburg and was connected with the so-called 'Feme' murders.
In March 1924 he was sentenced to one year's imprisonment as an accomplice of Rudolf Hess in the brutal, vengeance murder of Walther Kadow (his former teacher at elementary school), who had supposedly betrayed the proto-Nazi martyr Leo Schlageter to the French occupation authorities in the Ruhr.
After his release he entered the NSDAP, becoming its regional press officer in Thuringia and then business manager in 1928. From 1928 to 1930 he was attached to the SA Supreme Command and in October 1933 he became a Reichsleiter of the NSDAP. A month later he was elected as a Nazi delegate to the Reichstag. From July 1933 until 1941 Bormann was the Chief of Cabinet in the Office of the Deputy Fuhrer, Rudolf Hess , acting as his personal secretary and right-hand man.
During this period, the 'model secretary', diligent, adaptable and efficient, began his silent, imperceptible rise to the centre of the power apparatus, slowly acquiring master of the bureaucratic mechanism and Hitler's personal trust. He developed and administered the Adolf Hitler Endowment Fund of German industry, a huge fund of 'voluntary' contributions by successful business entrepreneurs to the Fuhrer, which Bormann then reallocated as gifts to almost all the top Party functionaries.
In addition to administering Hitler's personal finances, buying the Berghof at Berchtesgaden and running it as well as the whole complex of properties on the Obersalzberg, Bormann acquired the power to control the living standards of Gauleiters and Reichsleiters, not to speak of members of the Fuhrer's intimate circle. Bormann's brutality, coarseness, lack of culture and his apparent insignificance led the Nazi Old Guard to underestimate his silent persistence and ability to make himself indispensable.
Rudolf Hess's flight to Britain opened the way for the 'Brown Eminence' to step into his shoes on 12 May 1941 as head of the Parteikanzlei and to gather the reins of the Party into his own hands and steadily undermine all his rivals for power. Until the end of the war, the short, squat Bormann, working in the anonymity of his seemingly unimportant office, proved himself a master of intrigue, manipulation and political in-fighting. Always the 'narrow Party man' and a fierce guardian of Nazi orthodoxy (he was an arch-fanatic when it came to racial policy, anti-semitism and the Kirchenkampf [war between the churches]), Bormann strengthened the position of the Party against the Wehrmacht and the SS, and increased his grip on domestic policy.
Increasingly he controlled all questions concerning the security of the regime, acts of legislation, appointments and promotions, especially if they concerned Party personnel. He also established espionage in the army, getting younger officers promoted to spy on the political attitudes of their colleagues. He reopened the fight against the Christian churches, declaring in a confidential memo to Gauleiters in 1942 that their power 'must absolutely and finally be broken'. Nazism, based as it was on a 'scientific' world-view, was completely incompatible with Christianity whose influence was regarded by Bormann as a serious obstacle to totalitarian rule. The sharpest anti-cleric in the Nazi leadership (he collected all the files of cases against the clergy that he could lay his hands on), Bormann was the driving force of the Kirchenkampf, which Hitler for tactical reasons had wished to postpone until after the war.
Bormann was invariably the advocate of extremely harsh, radical measures when it came to the treatment of Jews, of the conquered eastern peoples or prisoners of war. He signed the decree of 9 October 1942 prescribing that 'the permanent elimination of the Jews from the territories of Greater Germany can no longer be carried out by emigration but by the use of ruthless force in the special camps of the East'. A further decree, signed by Bormann on 1 July 1943, gave Adolf Eichmann absolute powers over Jews, who now came under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Gestapo.
Bormann's memos concerning the Slavs make it clear that he regarded them as a 'Sovietized mass' of sub- humans who had no claim to national independence. In a brutal memo of 19 August 1942 he wrote: 'The Slavs are to work for us. In so far as we do not need them, they may die. Slav fertility is not desirable.'
By the end of 1942 Bormann was virtually Hitler's deputy and his closest collaborator, showing an uncanny ability to exploit his weaknesses and personal peculiarities in order to increase his own power. Always in attendance on the Fuhrer, taking care of tiresome administrative detail and skilfully steering Hitler into approval of his own schemes, Bormann acquired the inside track for displacing dangerous rivals like , Goebbels, Speer and even Eva Braun and watched his Fuhrer commit suicide in the Chancellery bunker. Ordered by Hitler 'to put the interests of the nation before his own feelings' and to save himself, Bormann left the Fuhrerbunker on 30 April 1945. Accounts of what happened afterwards vary widely.
