Helmut Tributsch (1943- ) was born in a small German-speaking enclave in Fruili in North East Italy. He was a Professor of Physical Chemistry from 1982 at the Free University of Berlin until his retirement in 2008. When his birthplace was destroyed in 1976 by an earthquake he began a study of animal behaviour prior to such events and their role as earthquake predictors, leading to the publication of Wenn die Schlangen erwachen (When the Snakes Awaken) in 1978.
His interests also extended to include Atlantis, regarding which, he published Die Gläsernen Türme von Atlantis (The Glass Towers of Atlantis) in 1986.>His view was that megalithic Europe, North Africa and the Mediterranean constituted Atlantis,< bounded by water on three sides and a little-known border to the east, it could be considered an island. Tributsch suggested that the island of Gavrinis near Carnac in Brittany had been the capital of this Atlantean civilisation.(a)(c).>Hank Harrison placed Atlantis in the same locality.<
Tributsch dated the destruction of Atlantis to 2200 BC, a date also favoured by Anton Mifsud.
>Further details regarding the content of Tributsch’s book, in English, are available on his website(b).<
