The man responsible for the project, Gauleiter or regional Nazi party chief in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein, Hinrich Lohse, was the main protagonist involved in bringing Adolf Hitler Koog to life. He was also the German administrative chief of Ostland, as Nazi Germany called the occupied territories of the Baltic states and parts of Belarus. Ostland was one of the main sites of the Holocaust. An estimated 1 million Jews were murdered by the Nazis there.
