Between November 28 and December 26, the Rising Tide Foundation is hosting a symposium of 5 lectures featuring different stories from the Cold War. Each story zeroes in on the artificial causes of this dark period in world history that never should have happened and how great men and women who understood how to break humanity free of its constraints had their lives cut short and plans subverted.

Who Killed Alfred Herrhausen and Why?
Speaker Bio: Dirk Pohlmann is a German investigative journalist and documentary film maker. He has worked as television and print journalist for 35 years and has produced hundreds of televised reports. He has written and directed more than 20 documentaries, mostly about intelligence operations in the Cold War. He is currently chief editor of Free21, an online and print magazine. He is acting partner of dibeva, an worldwide online media marketplace, (a sort of a journalistic ebay), which is currently in closed beta phase and will be online until the end of the year. Dirk was contracted to write a book about the Herrhausen cold case in early 2019. The book was supposed to be published at the 30th anniversary of the murder. Herrhausen was killed with a high tech bomb. The murder happened on 30th November 1989, three weeks after the Berlin wall came down ushering in an age of great hope and potential which Herrhausen was intent on leading.
During his investigation, Pohlmann was able to solve the mystery of who killed Herrhausen, which in turn led to the question WHY he was killed. Answering this second most important question arose after Dirk discovered the killers (who had their own motives) were under surveillance, which means it was probably a case of “let it happen on purpose”.
