As Fritz Haber saw it, he was a German first and foremost, in particular, a Prussian. So when War broke out in the summer of 1914, Haber did what any good Prussian would do – the man devoted every waking minute to the War effort to ensure victory for the Fatherland.
This is reflected in the quote he is remembered most for saying:
“During Peace time a scientist belongs to the world, but during War time, he belongs to his country.”
– Fritz Haber
Many within his field could not have wholeheartedly disagreed more with Haber’s stance on Science’s role in times of War, such as his good friend Albert Einstein, who said on numerous occasions during both World Wars that his only allegiance was to being a Pacifist.
As the First World War raged more and more, so too did Haber’s zealotry for his country. Despite it being clearly obvious how much his patriotic drive was dividing him between long standing colleagues like Einstein and even his own spouse, Fritz Haber’s fervor for the Fatherland was undeterred.

Within the Pantheon of scientific geniuses born in the middle of the 19th century, only Fritz Haber is credited for an invention which many believe to be the 20th century’s greatest achievement of scientific innovation. An achievement which not only expanded our working knowledge of the Universe, it positively altered the course of humanity’s progress on this planet.
Conversely alongside J. Robert Oppenheimer who directed The Manhattan Project which created and utilized the world’s first nuclear weapons, Fritz Haber is one of the most vilified scientists of all time due to another invention of his making which elevated the horror of War to a level of incomprehensible terror the likes of which had not been experienced before in the history of Mankind.
Never was there such a man who gave and took so much from the world around him with his creations that brought both Life and Death stemming from the same foundational source – his fervent love of country.

In no uncertain terms, Josef Goebbels was a PR and marketing genius who used propaganda to brainwash an entire nation into accepting his mindset of evil through both conscious and subconscious means. Standing barely over 5 feet tall and disabled by a clubbed foot that isolated him from birth, the dark haired, dour faced man deluded his people into thinking that not only were they a master race of humans that were superior above all others, but that he and his family were the perfect prototypes by which to model themselves by.
