- "But I don't want to go to Geneva!"
- ―Klaus Erskine
Geneva is a city in Switzerland.
An international Engineering Conference was held in Geneva on May 5, 1934. Howard Stark and Abraham Erskine met during the Conference, and would not meet again until Stark took part in a mission to rescue Erskine in Germany as a member of the Strategic Scientific Reserve.
Escape of Abraham Erskine
The 14th of September, 1935, Doctor Abraham Erskine, his wife Greta, and their sons Klaus and Marlene, boarded a train heading to Geneva in hopes of avoiding a group of anti-semitic laws known as Nuremberg Laws that Adolf Hitler would approve the following day in Nuremberg.
They could not arrive, as Johann Schmidt intercepted the train in the German/Swiss border, as he wanted to coerce Erskine into turning his research to them. Erskine ended up as prisoner in Castle Kaufmann, while his family was sent to a concentration camp in Dachau.
