When notorious Indiana abortion doctor Ulrich Klopfer passed way September 3rd, authorities searched his home and made a grisly discovery: Klopfer had kept the remains of more than 2,000 aborted children "medically preserved" in his home.
Since that discovery, numerous people have attempted to understand Klopfer's possible motivations for his demented habits. Last week, a former colleague theorized that the remains were "gruesome trophies" and compared Klopfer to cannibalistic movie villain Hannibal Lecter.
Now, a documentary filmmaker has revealed that he interviewed Klopfer ten months before his death, and says that some of Klopfer's revelations may shed light on his demented state of mind.
According to WBBM-TV, Klopfer — who was a German national — sat down with documentary film maker Mark Archer prior to his death, and during the interview, made it a point (unprompted) to say that the allied bombing of Dresden in World War 2 shaped his entire worldview.
According to Archer, Klopfer said during the interview, "Let me put it this way, in 1945 I was with my aunt, in the suburbs of Dresden. In February of 1945, in between the Americans and the English, they firebombed Dresden for three days and two nights."
Klopfer went on, "After the Berlin Wall fell down and Germany reunited, in 1994, they decided to rebuild the women's church, in the basement, they found dead bodies from World War II, OK?"
Klopfer further stated, in his interview with Archer, that the allied bombing of Dresden was critical in forming his whole worldview. "The effects of the war probably may have not had a positive inspect on my perception... Of human beings; what they do to each other."
Archer's perception of Klopfer was that he was motivated to a great degree by revenge against the U.S. for what happened at Dresden. Archer told WBBM, "I like to put it this way — the gospel according to George Klopfer goes like this: 'In the beginning, the Americans bombed my home.' Everything else has been dictated by that as his worldview. We didn't ask him about it. He made a point of bringing it up."
Klopfer lost his license and was criminally charged in 2015 for a number of crimes, including an allegation that he performed an abortion on an underage girl without notifying authorities.
The documentary, which is titled, "Inwood Drive," was due to be imminently released when the fetal remains were found at Klopfer's home. The production team then pulled the release in order to supplement their work with material regarding the investigation into the gruesome discovery. A revised release date for the documentary has not yet been revealed.
