Greetings.
I would be very grateful if you could possibly find the full report. And still missing is the service record of Donand Richarson and Hans Kammlers special projects and project sites.
This would include the documentation and photos taken at all the various work sites by the US ARMY and CIC and other special investigative teams who went to sites such as Bergkristal and Kellerbau in Linz Austria, these were General Hans Kammlers underground factories and was surrendered to the US. As was the S3 sites in Jonastal and 25 others. some are not mentioned in these papers at all, despite we all know this was the case.
Please provide me with the full reports and photos taken at these locations upon capture by US or allied forced.
Thank you
Sincerely
Tino Struckmann

SS General Hans Kammler was one of the most important people in Nazi Germany and his testimony to the CIC as well as all research facilities and underground factories were extremely well documented and photographed at the time of the US liberation of these, sites such as Bergkristal, Kellerbau in Gusen/Linz as well as Jonastal in Germany and many others. I understand these were classified materials during the cold war, however must at this point be or should be or could be released for historians.
Including as to the happens to the General while in American custody would be of great interest to his living family whom I am also researching for.
Please take a moment and assist with the finding of these materials.
thank you

I would respectfully like to appeal the closure of this request as it is incomplete.
Firstly general Kammler had war time communications with Allan Dulles and post war dealings as he was brought to the US with William Donovan as the OSS transitioned into the CIA.
There is a significant amount of documentation within the OSS and CIA files on this I request released.

However also when it comes to my many requests of the documentation of Kammlers underground tunnel factories, I request the ENTIRE amount of documentation and PHOTOGRAPHS of these tunnels. Every one of these systems were extensively documented and photographed, video filmed and catalogued with inventory. I am requesting these historically important photographs from all of these, remembering these include the most technically advanced factories of Nazi Germany such as Kellerbau, Bergkristall and Dora Mittelbau as well as those communication and underground bunkers in Jonastal and Ordruff. These were all documented by the OSS, Technical services, Air-force intelligence, Army intelligence. even the ALSOS teams full reports from these have not yet been made public.

Furthermore 3 detailed reports were produced before 1947 about these underground facilities, these included photos from these.

Given the secrecy of these tunnel systems, the pending cold war and those involved it stands to reason these files are now in the hands of the CIA.
They are of extreme historical importance and no longer should be kept secret.

Please look again, and if these are found and still classified at let me know so I can the make proper legal request for declassification.

Tino
