The Canadian Parliament Fire of 1916

On February 3, 1916, the Canadian Parliament building caught on fire and quickly destroyed most of the building. For the last 100 years investigators and historians have tried to shed light on the causes of the disaster. After all, the fire occurred while German sabotage agents in the US had orders to attack Canadian and US targets to stem the flow of munitions to Europe. This paper will examine the state of knowledge of this fire and introduce new sources to advance the theory of German involvement in the conspiracy.

The Mexican Front in the Great War

It may be a surprise to many, but Mexico played an important role in World War I. Consumed by its civil war, the oil rich nation became a key strategic battleground for Germany. When German agents enticed Pancho Villa to attack the United States in 1916, the massive US response precipitated the eventual defeat of German forces in Europe. As outlandish as it sounds, Germany lost World War I in the dusty streets of Columbus, New Mexico. Heribert von Feilitzsch will present this little known history in a one hour tour de force of spy stories, revolution and war.

Germany lost World War I in the smoldering ruins of Columbus, New Mexico

Author Heribert von Feilitzsch will present a lecture on the daring German strategy to pull Mexico into war with the United States during World War I. While initially highly successful, the effort backfired badly. Indeed, fully trained and equipped American soldiers defeated Germany less than two years after Pancho Villa’s attack on Columbus, New Mexico.
