Helnwein helps Narconon ® in Germany - The OSA/DSA Letter of 1992

In 1989, Helnwein was not only extremely generous in supporting the American Scientology model drug center in Newkirk, Oklahoma with more than DM 350,000 in sales from the art work (!) which he donated to Scientology; he was also doing it up in grand style outside his front door in his chosen homeland of Germany, as demonstrably proven by the contents of a confidential letter from the German Scientology secret service OSA/DSA of May 7, 1992.

In a "fund-raising" letter to Stuttgart Hubbard adherents who were potentially capable of providing financial support, DSA secret service agent Richard Eisenboeck, c/o Scientology Church Germany, 105 Frankfurt Ring (OSA office), 8000 Munich 40, wrote, "I would like to give you a short report on a financial project very important to Narconon and the OSA. Possibly someone has already spoken to you about it, but here is the entire story:

Gottfried Helnwein has stated that he is ready to put one of his latest photo-realistic paintings - Marilyn Monroe, see enclosed photo - on the market in a worldwide limited edition of 450 copies for the purpose of supporting Narconon and OSA (comparable works from Helnwein are conservatively estimated at DM 5,000 per lithograph (!); that would make a total of about DM 2.2 million (!) for the Scientology organization! - the author) Exclusive distribution runs through us and a Swiss litho-attorney and the pure profit flows to us (OSA - the author) and to Narconon. If desired, the lithograph will be autographed. Helnwein's lithographs are not just copies, but a valuable investment. The objective lithograph is a classic piece of aesthetics, a timeless myth, and last, but not least - a direct donation to Narconon and OSA with no burden upon the purchaser, since he is getting more than the full value for his money. The Monroe lithograph is almost twice as big as many other lithographs from Helnwein's output. The lithograph will be produced in the middle of the month of May (1992) by the artist in Switzerland, and will also be available in May. The above subscription price will be valid until distribution begins. If you really want to do me and us a favor, then decide to buy one or more Monroe lithographs and, additionally, make use of your contacts who are interested in art NOW.

Finally, this is about helping Narconon and OSA. Narconon must raise several hundred thousand marks in the next few weeks in order to meet budget."

What was meant was the Narconon "drug" center in Schliersee,

Stuttgart, May 7, 1992

Dear Klaus,

I would like to give you a short report on a financial project very important to Narconon and the OSA. Possibly someone has already spoken to you about it, but here is the entire story:

Gottfried Helnwein has stated that he is ready to put one of his latest photo-realistic paintings - Marilyn Monroe, see enclosed photo - on the market in a worldwide limited edition of 450 copies for the purpose of supporting Narconon and OSA. Exclusive distribution runs through us and a Swiss litho-attorney and the pure profit flows to us and to Narconon. If desired, the lithograph will be autographed.

Helnwein's lithographs are not just copies, but a valuable investment. The objective lithograph is a classic piece of aesthetics, a timeless myth, and last, but not least - a direct donation to Narconon and OSA with no burden upon the purchaser, since he is getting more than the full value for his money. The Monroe lithograph is almost twice as big as many other lithographs from Helnwein's output.

The lithograph will be produced in the middle of the month of May by the artist in Switzerland, and will also be available in May. The above subscription price will be valid until distribution begins.

If you really want to do me and us a favor, then decide to buy one or more Monroe lithographs and, additionally, make use of your contacts who are interested in art NOW.

Finally, this is about helping Narconon and OSA. Narconon must raise several hundred thousand marks in the next few weeks in order to meet budget. That is supposed to be accomplished mainly through this project. The only reason that we are putting so much stress on this project is that we want Narconon to remain on our front door step and not have to be forced to emigrate.

Narconon can then also pay off OSA's bills, that is how we will recover our expenses.

In anticipation of your FAST response by telephone and with best regards,

Richard Eisenboeck

Helnwein and the DSA/OSA secret service in Germany 1992
Richard Eisenboeck, like Helnwein, is a "Patron"

Helnwein & Scientology, Lies & Treason by Peter Reichelt, 1997 - Page 139

Bavaria, under the management of Scientologist Horst Niesel, one of Helnwein's longtime acquaintances, who advertised for drug addicts in newsletters such as the one of April 5, 1986, "... You have already often heard of us. Today I would like to inquire of you whether you know people who have difficulties with drugs or alcohol. Please send us their names ..." To be sure, these efforts to harvest customers were not exactly blessed with success. For years The Center at Schliersee had to survive on allowances from OSA/DSA in Munich.

Renate and Gottfried Helnwein also had frequent personal contact with Horst Niesel's center for reasons including the sponsorship of Narconon, Inc. The Helnwein couple also met conspiratorially with Niesel to discuss other financial modalities of survival, such as happened on May 17, 1991 in Vienna in the office of long-term "Patron" Anton "Toni" Morell, who enjoyed 100% trust as Helnwein's business manager of his Austrian WISE ® corporation "Gottfried Helnwein, Inc.", barely one week before the opening of the Helnwein exhibition "Kindskopf" in the Minoriten Church in Krems near Vienna.

Other high-ranking Scientologists like OT and painter Helnwein's good friend Detleff Foullois, who was sentenced in 1993 in the state court in Rostock to several years in prison for tax evasion, was said to have donations of up to DM 20,000 channeled to Schliersee in the fall of 1991 at Helnwein's intercession. Foullois, with his "Cosmos Computer, Inc." computer company in Hamburg, was also a member of WISE, the Scientology business association. Like Helnwein, he was also a "Patron" (generous donor) of the IAS (International Association of Scientologists). Detleff Foullois, together with his partner Koenig, outfitted and networked the Germany Scientology organizations with computer hardware and software. The OSA - intelligence agency - computer system, with its offices in Munich and Duesseldorf, have also been running under his set-up since the early 1990s. All important German-speaking business bosses in WISE are in constant contact with each other. The true commercial holders of power of the Scientology organizations located in Germany, Austria and Switzerland are individual, well-to-do WISE members like the high-ranking Scientologists Kempe, Fliegerbauer, Foullois, Herold, Stricker, Heilig, Brase, Epple, Annau, along with a handful of other persons. Helnwein, in charge of his company "Gottfried Helnwein Inc." was member of WISE's Austrian

Helnwein & Scientology, Lies & Treason by Peter Reichelt, 1997 - Page 140

net of Scientologists. These people, in the real sense of the word, are the "godfathers" of the organization. They hold the commercial threads together.

A conspicuously large number of threads run to Gottfried Helnwein, the real "capo di capi," although not as a WISE member in Germany, but "only" on a detour through Austria. For many years he has had direct private and business contact with many of these people and not infrequently issues, with his wife Renate, Scientology "management instructions" in regards to doing business together.

But help came too late for the Schliersee Narconon. Not just for it, but also for the one in Berlin; they were closed on grounds of questionable practices such as those committed by multiple Narconon staff members in Germany who were convicted for deprivation of liberty, coercion and violations of medical practice. Only the center in Itzehoe is open at this time.

In the summer of 1990 Helnwein himself was reveling in his castle in Burgbrohl, the occasion of which was the filming of a production for Austrian television of a session for a new Saturday evening show planned by Dietmar Schoenherr and television producer Peter Reichelt for the ORF by the name of "Kinderspiel" ["Child's Play"] before the audience, some of whom were celebrities like Dieter Schoenherr, for example, who was destined to become moderator and his co-moderator Desiree Nosbusch, about the qualities of the Narconon center, particularly the new model center in the USA.

The last Narconon building remaining in Germany is located in Itzehoe in northern Germany. On May 28, 1996, journalist Stephan Clausen wrote an article which appeared on the front page of the Itzehoe newspaper entitled, "Doubts about Therapy in Narconon - Fatal Case." Clausen wrote, "After the death of the director of the Narconon drug self-help establishment, the presiding authorities performed a painstaking examination of events.... In a report by 'S-Zett' television magazine by independent broadcaster Vox, former drug addicts brought up serious accusations against the establishment. For instance, an ex-junkie and drug addicts were treated in Narconon by lay people under use of force with practices clearly ascribed to Scientology. According to expert opinions, these methods are medically objectionable. Up to now, though, there has been no way of interceding because the Narconon patients admitted to the Itzehoe Hospital

Helnwein & Scientology, Lies & Treason by Peter Reichelt, 1997 - Page 141

could not be brought to give testimony. The death which has just become known, however, of the director of the Itzehoe Narconon, Wolfgang Hafner, has shaken up the authorities. Hafner, who died in April with jaundice, could have been saved, according to statements from the county hospital, if he would have been delivered there in time. He was brought fully disabled into the clinic, where he died shortly afterward... Presumably Hafner was the victim of the 'therapy' which he had propagated himself - auditing and the Purification Rundown, practices of the Scientology organization. In the rundown, the addict is supposed to regularly sweat the poison out of his body by spending hours in the sauna. In auditing, the junkies are supposed to learn how to free themselves from space and time as a spiritual being..."

The future fate of the last Narconon center remaining in Germany is currently being decided upon by the authorities.

DSA/OSA agent Eisenboeck continued in his Helnwein - Art Fund Raising" letter of May 7, 1992 to describe the manner in which the center in Schliersee should be saved, with Helnwein's help, from closing:

"That is supposed to be accomplished mainly through this (Helnwein) project. The only reason that we are putting so much stress on this project is that we want Narconon to remain on our front door step (in Schliersee) and not have to forced to be emigrate. Narconon can then also pay off OSA's bills (!), that is how we will recover our expenses. In anticipation of your FAST response by telephone and with best regards - Richard Eisenboeck."

So not even Gottfried Helnwein, in spite of his fulminating yet so lucrative efforts, could stave off the approaching close of his "brother in faith" Niesel's Schliersee Scientology clinic due to acute financial problems.
