Two months after WWII began, German mathematician and scientist Hans Ferdinand Mayer checked into the Hotel Bristol in Oslo, Norway. Dr. Mayer was an anti-Nazi from Germany, and he purposely planned a trip to Scandinavia to leak information about the Nazis’ weapons systems and latest technological development projects. Mr. Mayer was employed by Siemens & Halske AG, an electrical engineering company which specialized in communications engineering that was headquartered in Berlin, Germany. He was director of the communications research laboratory.
