-Photoelectric Image Dissect Tube (1924)/The Box

In 1924 Adolf Hitler spent 264 days incarcerated in Landsberg after being convicted of treason following the Beer Hall Putsch in Munich the previous year. During his imprisonment, Hitler dictated and then wrote his book Mein Kampf with assistance from his deputy, Rudolf Hess.

A small section of the prison had been refurbished
as this section of the prison was "reserved" for "special prisoners"
that The State had decided to not punish but re -educate

3 political prisoners
were placed in

small room
with doors
not instead of bars
on them
each room was modified to look
and be exactly like the childhood room
of the prisoners...down to the style curtains and toys or souvenirs
each prisoner cherished.

the lamps,the beds,the blankets,the very flooring was copied by set designer's the Prison "Reformers"
had "borrowed from  Potsdam's  Babelsberg Film Studio, the oldest large-scale film studio in the world, producing films since 1912 which was experimenting with a new means of broadcast.

In the cell
the only thing
each prisoner
would have no reason to
feel "at home " with"

with only a square-ish box
had a rounded off Glass fronting and  a protruding
round backing
on top of this odd box
was a V like antennae

which each prisoner

would soon become well acquainted with.."The Box"

was not "turned on"

for weeks...
it became
a source of fear for all 3 men
locked 23 hours in the albeit comfortable prison cells
all of the prisoner's confessed to
a kind ward ,always dressed not in typical "guard uniform" but in manner quite similar to a school master.
On top of this the ward acted quite fatherly to the prisoners..
as did the female staff who dressed in "Sunday Best" attire.
The food served to the prisoners.
in the special section
of the prison
was abundant ,fresh and well seasoned...

But the Box*
in the corner of the room
loomed ever and ever more
a weapon surely
that would be in time loader ,aimed and fired.
a new type of weapon perhaps
created to induce the most pain possible...
so large and technical
this box looked
and seemed...


1924 April 6th

Hitler was woken up early
by the ward he had begun thinking of as "friend"
and told that his cousin Angela Maria  Raubal
had been taken
and detained for reasons that would soon become Clear

The Ward opened the back of the box with a set of keys and removed a plug of some kind which he placed inside a socket ,next the Ward bent over the Box and turned on a switch...

in minutes
the Box glowed
and inside the box
was Angela Raubal...
telling him
who had done this to her

who was filming her right now

"The personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew....."Angela said,

"this is my struggle ,THIS os OUR struggle...."
The Box told Hitler to grab a pen and paper...

and to "LISTEN" to my words
and SEE me
as YOU.....and all of us who need the world to know of the atrocities being done right here and now to our race..."

WRITE IT Dumbo....not YOUR WAY

or I will make you so sorry.......I will and can drive you irreversibly Mad in 4 minutes....


The development of television was the result of work by many inventors. Among them,  John Logie Baird. Many historians credit Baird with being the first to produce a live, moving, greyscale television image from reflected light. Baird achieved this, where other inventors had failed, by obtaining a better photoelectric cell and improving the signal conditioning from the photocell and the video amplifier.
Between 1902 and 1907, Arthur Korn invented and built the first successful signal-conditioning circuits for image transmission. The circuits overcame the image-destroying lag effect that is part of selenium photocells. Korn's compensation circuit allowed him to send still fax pictures by telephone or wireless between countries and even over oceans, while his circuit operated without benefit of electronic amplification.] Korn's success at transmitting halftone still images suggested that such compensation circuits might work in television. Baird was the direct beneficiary of Korn's research and success.[9][10]
In his first attempts to develop a working television system, Baird experimented with the Nipkow disk. Paul Gottlieb Nipkow had invented this scanning disc system in 1884.[Television historian Albert Abramson calls Nipkow's patent "the master television patent".[ Nipkow's work is important because Baird and many others chose to develop it into a broadcast medium.
In early 1923, and in poor health, Baird moved to 21 Linton Crescent, Hastings, on the south coast of England and later rented a workshop in the Queen's Arcade in the town. Baird built what was to become the world's first working television set using items including an old hatbox and a pair of scissors, some darning needles, a few bicycle light lenses, a used tea chest, and sealing wax and glue that he purchased.[13] In February 1924, he demonstrated to the Radio Times that a semi-mechanical analogue television system was possible by transmitting moving silhouette images.
...Arthur Korn (May 20, 1870, Breslau, Germany – December 21/December 22, 1945, Jersey City, New Jersey) was a German-born physicist, mathematician and inventor. He was involved in the development of the fax machine, specifically the transmission of photographs or telephotography, known as the Bildetelegraph, related to early attempts at developing a practical mechanical television system.[1][2]
 Korn was the son of Jewish Moritz and Malwine Schottlaender.He  studied physics and mathematics in Leipzig at the age of 15 . In 1914 he accepted the chair of physics at the Berlin Institute of Technology.
 Korn experimented and wrote on long-distance photography, the phototelautograph. He pioneered the use of light sensitive selenium cells which took over from the function of the stylus,[ and used a Nernst lamp as a light source. On the 18th October, 1906, he managed to transmit a photograph of Crown Prince William over a distance of 1800 km.[In 1924 John Lodge Baird  televised objects in outline. In 1925, he televised human faces. Baird was the first person to televise pictures of objects in motion..while other inventors developed means to have the images correspond with sound.
