what does the name Ludwikowice/Ludwigsdorf mean to you?
Ludwikowice underground tunnel complex is situated in lower Poland right next to Czech Republic and Germany. It is in an area filled with other Top-Secret tunnels of the Third Reich, in which one of them is the incomplete (?) tunnel system of Riesa (or Riese).
Both of the tunnel complexes were to be connected together, making it almost an entire working city underground, but that was never done because the war ended.
BUT Ludwikowice was working on something mysterious. Something of the most TOP-Secret research in the third Reich. Anyone got anymore information on this?
Make yourself an "image search" on http://www.google.com and write Ludwikowice.
You will find a few photos about it and this...http://www.eksploracja.org.pl/foto_gale ... kowice.htm
Notice the strange concrete "Fly Trap" in one of the pictures. It is called a "fly-trap" because it is round, big, and is associated with helicopter testing. Helicopters or other aircraft are put in the middle of the Flay-trap and tested for flight. If it crashes, the sorrounding concrete walls around protect the observers nearby.
BUT why a "fly-trap" here in this complex???
No helicopters were tested here in this area as far as I have researched. Anyone know of any units tested here? Helicopter units?
Perhaps missiles??? ... V-2´s??... V-9/V-10 prototypes??... other flying "things"?...what?
A certain Emil Mazuw was also involved here with this complex.
He was one of very few Oberst-Gruppenfuhrer (I think)... Above-Top-Top-General in the S.S. - Only Himmler came next in line.
Anyone know more about this Emil Mazuw?
Also a Hans Kammler was involved...a Dr. Ing. Hans Kammler (Chef der Amtsgruppe C im Wirtschaftsverwaltungshauptamt der SS)
No where-abouts as to what happened to this guy.
He completely dissappeared after the war.
Kammler was the engineer who helped in the design and construction of various concentration camps, and later in the war, he was assigned by Heinrich Himmler to take over the Nazi secret weapons programs. By the end of the war, it appears that he had consolidated all of the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe programs into the SS ! His role in the Nazi regime was clearly very important.
Someone has responded by saying...
What was really happening inside the tunnel complex of Ludwikowice/Ludwigsdorf ?Alan Heath, of Warsaw, Poland, has replied (January 20, 2004):
"Notwithstanding allegedly disappearing on the U-997 to Argentina, I assumed that Hans Kammler was captured in Czechoslovakia and shot in Jicin on May 12, 1945 by the NKVD along with around 100 others, many of whom were from the SS.
Wernher von Braun and others were captured in late April 1945, they certainly had not seen anything of Kammler since the end of February.
However I can offer no evidence to back this theory up."
What type of research were they doing? Why no witnesses are still around?
