A Mystery Solved!

This is very exciting, and I have posted this same article on my website TheHitlerLegacy.com.

There has been a very fruitful exchange of information with a reader whom we will call Jinni.  Jinni noticed an important clue in The Hitler Legacy that refers to a mysterious bunch of letters and numbers in Ratline.  This connection — which totally escaped me! —  quite possibly ties the Austrian Nazis Georg Anton Poech and his wife the anthropologist Hella Poech to the Sukarno gold enigma in a very definite way and which reveals the interest that the Javanese prince Soeryo Goeritno (an arms dealer and partner with Temasek of Singapore in the search for gold on Sumbawa, as well as the author of a book insisting that Georg Anton Poech’s real identity was none other than Hitler himself) had in the Poech documentation and why he was so insistent on getting his hands on the original Poech papers.

Those of you who have a copy of Ratline flip to page 117.  There you will see that I refer to the inside front cover of the Poech address book where a cryptic notation appears:  JR KepaD No. 35 637 and 35 638.  These last two numbers are accompanied by the signs for Male and Female, respectively.

Jinni — a close reader if ever there was one! — noticed a similarity between that notation and an address that appears in The Hitler Legacy on page 270.  There I refer to PT Galaxy Trust, the bank where Edison Damanik was an officer and which figures prominently in the stories that swirl around Sukarno’s gold and the Revolutionary Fund.  The address of the PT Galaxy Trust in Jakarta, Indonesia is given as Jalan Rawa Kepa VI.

As Jinni points out, JR Kepa is shorthand for Jalan Rawa Kepa.  The Roman numeral VI in the address was probably mistaken for the letter D, as the VI would have been written as 6.  In Poech’s spidery German hand the 6 could easily have passed for a D.

This means that the Poechs probably had accounts — 35 637 and 35 638 — at the very same, rather obscure, financial institution that was the epicenter (decades later) of the attempt to negotiate the Sukarno gold certificates.  Remembering that Poech died in 1970, that means that the couple had accounts at PT Galaxy Trust long before that date.

I have often wondered how the Poech couple managed to support themselves in what appears to be a thoroughly western fashion on that remote Indonesian island, and wondered as well as to what they might have been up to all those years.  Had they been caretakers of one of the greatest hordes of stolen gold of the twentieth century?  Were they somehow involved in moving assets from Europe to Indonesia in the early 1950s at the time of the Bandung Conference which saw the first indications that Sukarno was planning his Revolutionary Fund as an alternative to the World Bank and the IMF?  How would the Poechs have even known that PT Galaxy Trust existed, much less have accounts at that bank?

Does it connect in any way with Poech’s statement to a passing tourist that he came over under the aegis of the ICA?

As mentioned in The Hitler Legacy, ICA was the forerunner of US AID.  It was ostensibly designed as an international aid program of the United States.  Under ICA cover, however, Lee Harvey Oswald associate  George de Mohrenschildt visited Yugoslavia and was detained on suspicion of being a spy for the CIA.  And in Philip Agee’s expose of the CIA - Inside the Company: A CIA Diary — we find references to ICA as a front for CIA activities in Latin America.

There is much more to the story of Poech, Sukarno, ICA and the gold and we will be following this trail vigorously.  Watch this space!

And … many thanks to Jinni for solving one of my most perplexing mysteries, the strange notation in the Poech address book!

  1. Got it. Totally awesome history few people know about. I think the ideas of Peter Levenda, Jacques Vallee and John Keel will eventually link together in a very strange mix of things. Vallee, in an interview on YouTube has mentioned how the ‘aliens’ are into the Nazi thing. Sinister forces, indeed.

    1. Hi Lily,

      Thanks, I’ve subscribed to you on YouTube. But I didn’t find the Vallee links on your g+ site … ??? Your other stuff is great though - those librarians back then… !!!


  2. Hi Jinni: Those Vallee interviews are on my Levenda/Vallee playlist on YouTube. Click on the link I gave you and it will take you to that playlist on YouTube. I think. Otherwise, go to playlists to find them.

  3. Hi Lily: The link works fine, but either I’m deaf or Vallee says nothing about Nazis and aliens in these interviews. No matter - Vallee is brilliant, highly differentiated and (gasp!) sane. Not to be taken for granted in the “aliens” discourse.

  4. Hello Jinni and Lily. Congrats on Your Find Jinni. 🙂 I have subscribed to You on Youtube Lily… I will gladly Do the same For Your Channel Jinni. Take Care and Keep Us Up on pertinent Discoveries… You are Very Valuable Assets to Our Community… Thank You for Being- JoE G

    1. Sorry Jinni. It’s been months since I heard it and it was just mentioned briefly when he spoke of some of the things the aliens say to contactees. If I come across it again, I’ll let you know. I also have some links to Vallee and Keel’s books on PDF. If you’re interested, meet me at my google+ profile. I just finished Hitler Legacy, really good read and well documented.

      1. No matter! I’d love to have your list of Vallee’s and Keel’s books. I just visited your google+ page and left my name and email. I’m technologically challenged, to put things gently, so I hope I got it right!
        Have you read Peter’s other books?

    2. Hi JoEG,
      Thank you for your kind words! Lily is the media master, and I’m “technologically challenged,” as I told Lily below; so I don’t have a channel, but who knows? I can learn and I love doing so! Let’ s see what comes…
      In the meantime, if I discover new stuff I’ll post it here right away.

  5. Speaking of posting stuff, here is a review of a new book on Guantanamo:
    “Murder at Camp Delta” by Joseph Hickman. If what Hickman claims is true, and there is no reason to believe it isn’t, then the “tradition” of medical experiments carried out by the Nazis in Dachau, Auschwitz and elsewhere and continued by the US in programs like MKUltra is still being continued in Guantanamo. And if in Gitmo, then surely in other “black sites” around the world. The “Hitler legacy” is alive and well, unfortunately.

  6. Not sure if Hitler Legacy or Unholy Alliance or your interviews with Dave Emory is where this came up — but
    1) how much Nazi activity/support in Holland was actually from Dutch people and how much was from Kaiser court elements in exile in Holland after WW1 (who may have been key in building Nazism in Germany) and how much from old Dutch and Belgian royals in Arnhem and Leopoldsburg… while remembering how Roosevelt referred the Nazi supports as economic royalists.
    2) A related issue is how often early Nazi operations were carried out from bases in Iceland, Greenland, and nominally neutral Spanish and Portuguese islands and northwest African colonies… and German remnants in once-German Morocco, i.e. how much was Tarnung not only an economic but also military policy. (And may still be today?) This principle of course is reflected in German policy in the Middle East rooted in the Three Kaisers Alliance (which either you or Dave Emory covered).
    3) Yet another issue is how much of China was Allied and how much was Axis during its civil war that co-occurred with WW2… this is covered in Chinese history texts, which range the gamut of blatant lies to Selected Facts from the Works of the leader currently in power in either Beijing, Nanjing, Chongqing, Taipei, or Hsinking… how much fascism, in fact, was in China in WW2, and how much was it concealed or denied in order to maintain foreign alliances and military aid? Notice that British history books show different maps of China during WW2, more openly depicting Axis-controlled regional states in China. How much do remnants of the Asian Axis play in the TPP or the Asian Century proposed by Deng Xiaoping in his meeting with Rajiv Gandhi in 1986? How powerful were, in fact, the Chinese Blue Shirts and what was the extent of their connections with the Nazis? What was the true relationship between Chiang Kaishek and Wang Chingwei and Tokyo, disputed by various historians? This should matter on the topic of the continuation and revival of WW2 Fascism in Asia. Has anyone seen watched the CD accompanying The Last Emperor which includes comments by Michelangelo Antonioni where he specifies repeatedly that he Did Not Intend for the film to be a factual historical documentary, but rather more an entertaining story about a historical situation. How effectively has the China Lobby and other affiliated East Asian covert-op cults re-written the history of WW2 in Asia much like the IHR has of WW2 in Europe? With the TPP in focus now, we should not risk having an incomplete or distorted view of East Asian (incl fascist as well as communist) history or politics as political leaders attempt to arbitrarily decide the fate of the Pacific Rim.
