I dont believe that strain of malaria exists, thats not a factor of regular malaria and thats caused by a virus (or bacteria, I forget) transmit through the mosquito who picked it up.
I do 'know' that the Nazis were wanting to make soldiers who could "carry on loyalty after death" ie, continue fighting... two heads though? Cant imagine that would be an advantage in any way...
The Lebensborn (Fount of Life Society) was founded in December 1935 by Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler. Many people think Himmler got the idea for this experiment in "accelerated evolution" from his short-lived career as a chicken farmer in the early 1920s. But, in actuality, Himmler was a member of an occult group called the Artamen, which drew its inspiration from both esoteric and "racial hygiene" sources.
Once installed at Hitler's right hand, Himmler, the self-styled "Lord of Atlantis," started up a flurry of bizarre projects, of which the Lebensborn was only one. The purpose of the society was to care particularly for unmarried mothers of good blood made pregnant by SS or police officers and men and to allow them to have their children in private. These were then placed with SS families who wanted to adopt a child, or efforts were made to induce the father to shoulder his responsibilities and marry the girl. Stories spread later that Lebensborn maternity homes were little more than stud farms where SS officers could meet suitable pure-blooded girls to propagate for the Reich, or, as the word went, 'to present the Führer with a child.' At first the Lebensborn was under the Rasse-und- Siedlungshauptamt (Race and Settlement Main Office), Sippenamt (Family and Clan Office) division. The first home was opened at Steinhöring, not far from Munich, in 1936. In 1938, Himmler took personal control of the Lebensborn and placed Dr. Max Sollmann in charge. The organization grew by leaps and bounds all through World War II. By the time Allied troops entered Germany in force in March 1945, the Lebensborn had 450,000 children in its custody. As the Reich faced defeat, Himmler ordered Dr. Sollmann to destroy all Lebensborn records and scatter the "pureblood Aryan" children --"seedlings for the new race" -- throughout Europe.

I haven't heard of the movie Rukas but I shall try and track down a copy, it sounds interesting. It maybe of interest to you know that many movies have story lines influenced by real life. I've a few friends who work in the industry in Australia and know famous directors and producers personally. It's fascinating to listen to their recalls of conversations made during the making of such movies as The Matrix Trilogy, Star Wars, Wolverine and some of the smaller budget movies coming out of Oz. I know that the British and American military regularly work on movies. One example I can give is the Nazis in the book burning scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were mostly Intelligence Corp soldiers. I think it could be another example of art imitating life.
Off topic a bit here sorry chaps but foxhoundone, I tried to get into the model building but my artistic attempts all resembled Homer's spice rack so I stopped wasting my money. One of my movie buddies does some pretty good dioramas, he made one of Iraq 1991 from some of my descriptions, however they all have an anti war theme!
Ok back on track, foxhoundone, I heard of a barracks south of Hannover, maybe Paderborn, that had a room with occult drawings on the floor, have you ever heard this tale? Also did you ever get up to the Roundhouse at Hohne? I'd heard some freaky stuff going on up there but they are all lost to me with the mists of time.
