Assien Bohmers, born as Johan Christiaan Böhmers (first name also: Azzien, last name also Bommers, Böhmers or Bëmmers, * 16 November 1912 in Zutphen, Netherlands, † 1988) was a Dutch archaeologist and geologist in the service of the Himmler Research Institute Ahnenerbe
Bohmers applied to the SS organization Ahnenerbe with a photo and written documents, which should prove his Aryan descent. He gave a Frisian-national attitude; In his maternal ancestor, however, only a Friesian grandmother was demonstrable. As a department leader for prehistory in the SS organization Forschungsgemeinschaft Deutsches Ahnenerbe, he conducted a series of research expeditions, including 1937-1938 excavations in Bavaria and July 1939 in the Austrian Nikolsburg. The excavations were under the personal supervision of Heinrich Himmler. These excavations had to provide a scientific justification for the national socialist racial theory of Aryan men. So be it, on the archeological site of Mauern Caves Bohmers found red ohcre, a pigment for cave paintings made by Cro-Magnon, and artifacts: burins, ivory pendants; furthers digging led to discover a woolly mammoth skeleton, and neanderthal remains with throwing spears and javelin, technology developed and used by the Cro-Magnons. These items are dated between 70000 and 50000 years old making of this site the oldest Cro-Magnons site in the world.
Bohmers assigned his finds from Germany to the Cro Magnon people, claiming that Germany was the home of the Nordic (Aryan) race. These items were exposed at exhibitions in Netherlands, France and Belgium.
Bohmers thesis was that Cro-Magnons exterminated Neanderthals and took over his place in mankind race as a superior and dominant race.
In the years 1939, 1941 and 1943, he conducted excavation with the Czech scholar Karel Absolon for the “ancestor” in Dolní Vestonitse (southern Moravia) on a resting place of Paleolithic (Late Pleistocene) huntsman.
After the German occupation of the Netherlands during the Second World War, Bohmers worked as a consultant for the SS at his own request.
After the war, he was interned and gave a testimony testimony to his SS-Ahnenerbe at the Nuremberg Military Court but he was not sentenced to jail and walked free out of it.
