Gunther Karger: Holocaust survivor; he is the sole survivor of his family from a small town in the Black Forest in Germany and was raised in foster homes and orphanages in Sweden and the U.S.
He is a well-recognized engineer/scientist, having developed satellite and network communications, and was a corporate executive.
Karger has appeared on national TV and assists law enforcement and regulatory bodies in detecting and apprehending Wall Street and corporate criminals.
Gunther Karger discusses the Holocaust in the context of his own experience as a 6-year boy sent out alone on the last shipment of children to Sweden to live in foster homes and orphanages ranging from a very religious evangelistic Christian home to an ultra-orthodox Jewish home until after the War ended.
Then he was shipped, again alone, by boat to America to live with a distant relative in the U.S.A. as a virtual slave until thrown out at age 17, one year before graduating high school.
Unlike most Holocaust survivors who speak and who focus on the horrors they experienced, he focuses on life as it evolved over the years and making the most of opportunities.
He will focus on the positive and thus present a motivational message.
Karger gives the details of his miraculous escape from Germany as his parents sent him to Sweden on a train just before they and his entire family, including grand parents, were arrested, deported to a concentration camp in France, and murdered.
Karger survived by living in two foster homes, one orphanage and another foster home where he was kept as a virtual slave for four years.
He tells of his military service in the USAF and his service in intelligence during the Cold War when he developed a plan for the U.S. to survive a nuclear attack and launch a major retaliatory missile attack against the Soviet Union, which materially contributed to the Soviets standing down during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Karger also tells about his experience during America’s moon program while at Cape Canaveral working with space scientists, including the German rocket engineer Wernher von Braun.
