I based this on a Google translation of [1] so it could do with checking by a better German speaker than me.

Both Google and I were baffled by:

  • Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Faserstoffchemie
  • Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, Silikatforschung
  • Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, Stroemungsforschung

The first of these is probably KWE of Fibre Chemistry. Cutler 16:21, Jul 1, 2004 (UTC)

The archive of the Max Planck Society provides a list of english names for the former KWIs. According to this it should be
  • KWI Faserstoffchemie = Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Fiber-Chemistry
  • KWI Silikatforschung = Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Silicate Research
  • KWI Strömungsforschung = Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Flow Research
So, the given translations seem to be fine, but the extension "(Fluid Dynamics)" could be deleted from the name of the KWI Flow research --Ioverka 22:26, 7 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Tag & Assess 2008[edit]

Removed Military History Tag as out of scope of project. --dashiellx (talk) 19:16, 15 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]


the article should be moved to "Kaiser Wilhelm Society" - that is the correct term. All other is slang. Plehn (talk) 05:22, 4 August 2008 (UTC)[reply]

The page name "Kaiser Wilhelm Institute" has been changed to "Kaiser Wilhelm Society" and all the redirects have been adjusted accordingly. Bfiene (talk) 14:47, 11 November 2008 (UTC)[reply]

KWI for Foreign Private and Private International Law ?[edit]

This must be a mistake... Do you mean "Institute for Foreign and Private International Law" [2]? Not sure. --Edcolins (talk) 21:46, 11 December 2008 (UTC)[reply]


The below paragraph put in the Constitution section reads as some sort of wartime propaganda. Besides having little relevance to this section there is absolutely no referencing given to backup these claims. Please leave your biased opinions at home.

In World War One, this included chemical weapons of mass destruction, with the development, production and then use of nerve gas. Prior to World War Two, Germany was involved in researching and developing the atomic bomb, leading other countries to develop the atomic bomb in response. During World War Two, the German military government was involved in a great deal of research that was used offensively. This included research and development of Xyklon B, that was used to gas millions of Europeans during World War Two, and the development of the crematoria that was used to dispose of the bodies. The Kaiser Wilhelm Institute was involved in genetics research, social research connected to euthenasia, which resulted in the extermination of 800,000 handicapped Europeans, and in infectious disease research and experimentation, as well as a wide variety of other offensive research, experimentation and application. Germany and Japan were the two governments that first initially considered and used nature as a means of assault and extermination through the development of weapons of mass destruction based on nature; atoms, microbes, gasses, genetics. The research institutes in both Germany and Japan were controlled by the military governments during World War One and World War Two and used for the development of weapons of mass destruction for the purpose of extermination. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:33, 2 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]
