I have to apologise for the fact
that we again will be confronted with the downsides of British Intelligence
Where (xeno)phobia was apparent,
already in the days, where Nazi Germany did not existed; in the second half of
the 1920s; albeit that Salzmann arrived on 18.3.1930.
Very much of this, quite
extensive file, concerns an ill phobia with extremely little results - but
I have doubted between creating
a regular html webpage or, this time, a series of PDF documents.
The advantage of a html webpage
is, that it is easy to implement bookmarks (including accurate returning) to and
from everywhere of our website.
However, I do expect that for
this subject we will not directly encounter these circumstances.
After some consideration, I have
decided that it is really making sense to get an impression of whom Erich
von Salzmann really was.
Therefore an interesting link:
He really was a quite tough man, definitely with guts.
More significant - whatever the Secret Service servant's thoughts were - nowhere
in all the papers copies, which have remained time, is a single real proof
of Erich von Salzmann being engaged in real espionage or subversive
engagements against Britain.
What was von Salzmann then doing
In his days in London - he was a
broad-minded journalist, whom arrived in March 1930, representing a German Press
Von Salzmann's wife Kaethe
was Jewish and about mid 1935, therefore, his German journalistic
engagements were terminated, and he became, among others, engaged with the
Japanese and, in some way with the Russians as well.
But still consider his
"political analyses" being the core of his intellectual concept.
These analyses were mainly from
reading newspapers, but also gathering peoples opinions; and other means.
We may consider - that Erich von
Salzmann also spoke, in some respect, a Chinese language; likely also
some Japanese, as he lived there about 1922.
His main engagements concerned
"the political state of affairs"; particularly where he lived for a while. Be in
the Far East, such as China, Japan, London or elsewhere.
Annoying is - that these very
Crown servants continuously remained pointing at Erich von Salzmann being a spy.
Apparently, for them, maybe an intellectual flaw of understanding; the
real world is a wider field, than the limited horizon of their own office-desk;
and the way between their homes (families) and offices, vice versa.
us, after all, be aware: that in the case of - Erich von Salzmann really
could have been accused of espionage - that he certainly would have
been brought to Justice, or being expelled immediately from Britain (persona
non-grata); though, neither of these circumstances (possibilities) occurred
- during the > 9 years he lived in England. That he left England, somewhere in
August 1939, more or less in panic, was caused by the circumstance - that a new
World War was eminent - and consequently - the Salzmann family would have
been captivated instantly, because they were Aliens.
AOB: the longer I am engaged within the rather tragic Erich von Salzmann case,
it becomes more and more evident - that the tragic fates of Erich von Salzmann,
and later, Erich Vermehren**,
are becoming quite comparable. The mutual reason of their dramatic fates - was
the apparent anti-German Phobia
- within the British Secret Services; which phenomenon existed already long
before the Nazi era; even long before the start of the foregoing century
Right or wrong my country; may
only be claimed by British subjects, and don't dare to claim it elsewhere
