Genealogy research by Mark Humphrys,
was used by the Nazis
one of the
concentration camp system.
Men, women and children from around Europe
were worked to death and executed
in this complex of camps.
Himmler set up the SS Institute for Plant Genetics at the Lannach sub-camp in 1943, using slave labour.
After the war, the Bartenstein family took over Lannach Castle in 1947
and still own it.
It is the HQ (with a factory complex) of the family firm Lannacher Heilmittel GmbH (and here).
This is the family of politician Martin Bartenstein (and here), Austrian Minister of Economy and Labor, 2007-08.
Lannach Castle survives today.
I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.
