UAP - A German Perspective ...a short introduction into the series

With this first post, I would like to start a little blog series to give an insight into the history of UFO/UAP-related events that happened in my home country, because Germany has seen many fascinating and likely important UAP events that were either overlooked, mis- or half-right represented in the past and by other authors (...likely because of mistranslations of the original sources and language barriers).

Before I start the series, I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself: Born in 1976 in the southwestern German federal state of Saarland, I am a self-employed journalist and the editor of www.grenzwissenschaft-aktuell.de (GreWi), a now much-read daily news blog on anomalistic phenomena and frontiers in science, written in the German language.

 

Since 1994, I have tried to investigate the Crop Circle phenomenon from a scientific perspective and have spent many summers in the fields of southern England. In 2014, I co-curated the world's first exhibition on the phenomenon for a science museum – the "Wiltshire Museum" at Devizes, Wiltshire, UK, known for its presentation of the Gold-findings from Stonehenge. I wrote two books on the phenomenon, its history, and research: "Kornkreise - Geometrie, Phänomene, Forschung" (2001) and "Phänomen Kornkreise" (2005) published by Swiss AT Verlag. I always regarded Crop Circles as a phenomenon in and of its own and not as a sub-phenomenon of the UFO mystery. While I still keep track of the circles, my main focus of interest has shifted since several years to UFOs/UAP.

 

In 2021, I published a 450-paged compendium about all known, less known, and (until then) unknown official German UFO files, "Deutschlands UFO-Akten - Über den politischen Umgang mit dem UFO-Phänomen in Deutschland." In 2023, I published the second part of this book series (which is actually more like the prologue to its predecessor) on historical UFO-related documents from Germany (776-1870), "Deutschlands historische UFO-Akten - Schilderungen unidentifizierter Flugobjekte und Phänomene in historischen Aufzeichnungen und Archivalien aus Deutschland."
