FACT: Lebensborn Project

Lebensborn, translated from archaic German as 'wellspring (or, fountain) of life', the most secret and terrifying Nazi breeding program, was launched in 1935 by the SS boss and Hitler's right-hand man, Heinrich Himmler, a member of the Thule Society.
Rooted in the mainstream genetics of reputable and most advanced scientific and technological society of its day, the aim of the project was to create "genetic purity" of the superior Aryan master race.
The Lebensborn mothers swore the SS oath, “My honour is my loyalty,”[1] a bond of secrecy which for many proved hard to break even decades later.
