Theodor Fr. Böttiger
(October 1944)

Dr. Theodor Fr. Böttiger was born on June 30, 1903 in La Paz (Bolivia). In 1926, he graduated in philosophy. His dissertation, defended in Hamburg on December 21, 1926, was entitled Das Einströmen des Nationalgefühls in Hamburg während der Franzosenzeit (1800-1814). 
On May 1, 1933, Böttiger became a member of the NSDAP. At that time, he was a Schriftleiter. His membershipnumber was: 2672847. According to his membership card, which nowadays is preserved in the Bundesarchiv in Berlin, he left the NSDAP in 1942. In August 1943, he renewed his membership. In World War II, he resided in Berlin, London, The Hague and Stockholm. Böttiger's passport photo, depicted on the left, is a copy of the passport photo on his NSDAP-membership card.

 
Böttiger has written a great number of political publications, most of them national-socialistic:

  • Hamburgs Patrioten 1800-1814 (Hamburg, 1926);

  • London und Berlin (in Der Vorstoss - Wochenschrift für die deutsche Zukunft #45, 1931); 

  • Unser Hindenburg - der große Soldat und Reichspräsident im Bilde (a volume in the series Die Bücher der jungen Generation, Berlin, 1934); 

  • Führer der Völker - 11 Porträts von Führerpersonlichkeiten (a volume in the series Die Bücher der jungen Generation, Berlin, 1935);

  • Engländer... Gestalten aus dem Alltag einer müden Nation (volume 3 in the series Die neue Welt Bücherei, Berlin, 1941) ;

  • Der Sinn des 30. Januar (enclosure to # 4 of volume 10, 1944 of Der Deutsche in Schweden - Mitteilungsblatt für das Deutschtum in Schweden (Stockholm). Der Deutsche in Schweden was published from 1935 to 1945; from 1935 to 1941 once a month, from 1941 to 1945 twice a month. From 1943 to 1945, Böttiger was editor in chief). 

Böttiger also contributed to # 3 and 7 of volume 1928 and # 9 of volume 1929 of the Berlin magazine Jungnationale Stimmen (national-socialism, youth movement).

On May 27, 1940, the Völkischer Beobachter, the official newspaper of the NSDAP, published the article Die Kolonne des Nostradamus. Böttiger, entitled as a "correspondent on diplomacy", opposed himself against England and tried to incite the French society against her government by supposing that Frenchmen who attached great value to the Nostradamian prediction that in 1940 Paris would be ruined and England would be destroyed, were far more realistic than the French Prime Minister Reynaud, who trusted general Weygand, who had to lead the French army in their fight with the Germans.
