This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - Operation Pastorius. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
With the American entry into World War II in late 1941, German authorities began planning to land agents in the United States to collect intelligence and carry out attacks against industrial targets. The US production capability was crushing the German war effort.
Organization of these activities was delegated to the Abwehr, Germany's intelligence agency, which was headed by Admiral Wilhelm Canaris. Direct control of the American operations was given to William Kappe, a long-time Nazi who had lived in the United States for 12 years.Canaris named the American effort “Operation Pastorius” after Francis Pastorius who led the 1st German settlement in North America.
George Dasch was to lead Ernst Burger, Heinrich Heinck, and Richard Quirin in attacking the hydroelectric plants at Niagara Falls, a cryolite plant in Philadelphia, as well as Aluminum Company of America factories in NY, IL, and TN. Edward Kerling's team of Hermann Neubauer, Herbert Haupt, and Werner Thiel were designated to strike the water system in NYC, a railroad station in Newark, Horseshoe Bend near Altoona, PA, as well as canal locks at St. Louis and Cincinnati.
In the end the Germans confessed and the FBI caught all 8 conspirators. Six were executed, 2 were given life sentences and later deported back to Germany.
