Henry Kolm had an interesting job as a 21-year-old.
He smuggled Nazi scientists into Boston Harbor.
“We had a mess hall and the Germans gave each other lectures,” Kolm remembered. “They called this place where they stayed ‘the Haus der Deutschen Wissenschaft,’ the House of German Science.”
If it weren’t such a secret, they could have put up a marquee and called it “Wernher von Braun’s House of German Science.”
Kolm’s assignment was to repackage von Braun and his fellow engineers and scientists as Americans.
Probably he talks about it today because these are the "good" Nazis - those that eventually were made Americans and helped build the space program. Those Nazis who brought us MK or who managed to bring communist spies from within their circles to America still remain something of a mistery.
