This is not a case of an adoption agency that couldn’t find homes for triplets. A Kike jew-voodoo witch-doctor (a “Holocaust survivor”) purposely separated these triplets at birth, so he could study their development in different environments. From an impersonal scientific point of view it wasn’t even a well-conducted experiment. The three brothers were all raised by suburban New York two-parent middle-class Kike families, close to each other, so their growth-environments were not exactly very diverse. And the witch doctor simply collected notes for his own pleasure. He drew no conclusions, but simply monitored them. And it was highly unlikely even kike “scientific” journals would ever have published his “findings” – not without condemning him at the same time, and possibly having him disbarred and possibly face legal consequences. And keep in mind all the kike propaganda about Mengele being obsessed with twins, and the ‘Nazis’ obsession with genetics, when in fact nobody is as obsessed with genetics as the kike is. The Kikes are an extremely sick and twisted tribe.
Sundance debuts dark tale of triplets split at birth

“Three Indentical Strangers” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19, 2018
If it were a conspiracy thriller it would be dismissed as far-fetched, but Tim Wardell’s astonishing story of triplets separated at birth and reunited by pure chance is all too real.
His debut feature documentary “Three Identical Strangers,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, introduces Bobby Shafran, Eddy Galland and David Kellman, who had no idea they were triplets until the age of 19.
But don’t expect “The Parent Trap,” for this altogether darker film shows how the trio’s joyous reunion set in motion a chain of events that unearthed a conspiracy that went far beyond their own lives.
The amazing saga began in 1980 when Shafran enrolled at Sullivan County Community College, a two-hour drive north of New York, and was told he had a double called Eddy Galland, who had just quit.
Shafran tracked down Galland and, sure enough, they were stunned to find they looked exactly alike, and had the same birthday, interests, voices, mannerisms and even hands.
The chance reunion of twins separated at birth was enough to make the front pages of the local tabloids but the coverage unearthed a far more intriguing story.
Kellman was reading about the newly-acquainted brothers and realized he, too, looked exactly like them, shared their birthday and was also adopted.
The men hit it off immediately, moving in together, transferring to the same degree course in international marketing.
The public lapped up their inspiring story and they became celebrities in the Manhattan club scene, even making cameo appearances in Madonna’s first major movie, “Desperately Seeking Susan.”
“The initial meeting was just complete surrealism. These things that were happening were just so unreal that they were almost dreamlike,” Shafran told AFP.
“But then once we got together there was a joy that I had never experienced in my life and it lasted a really long time.”
They opened a restaurant — Triplets — selling Eastern European fare and had a ball in the early days, but eventually tempers began to fray as arguments flared over work responsibilities.
Wardle uses a mix of reenactments and interviews with Shafran and Kellman, now 56, to deliver the first bombshell — a disillusioned Shafran quitting the business.
Then the story takes a tragic turn as it is revealed that Galland had become increasingly depressed and unstable, eventually taking his own life at the age of 33.
The mystery around their infancy — why they knew nothing about each other despite growing up within a 100-mile radius — took another twist as journalist and writer Lawrence Wright made a stunning discovery.
The triplets, it turned out, were among a number of identical siblings split up as part of a dark 1960s “nature versus nurture” social experiment led by psychoanalyst Peter Neubauer of the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services in Manhattan.
Visits by researchers throughout their childhoods were explained away as a “child development study” when in reality Neubauer was scrutinizing the brothers’ personalities and relationships with their very diverse adoptive families.
“We really didn’t understand just how egregiously these people behaved,” said Kellman, who told AFP all six adoptive parents were angered that they too had been kept in the dark.
“As we got older, got married, became parents ourselves, we realized how impactful it was.”
‘Victims, not participants’
Wardle, who came across the story while scouting for new documentary ideas and has spent five years on the film, describes the story as “one of most extraordinary” he’d ever heard.
“Right from the off they are very characterful, warm people but there was also a degree of mistrust, which I completely understand,” he told AFP.
“When you hear the full depth of their story and what has happened to them it’s quite understandable that they’d be a bit wary of people.”
The Jewish Board finally agreed to give the surviving brothers access to 100,000 pages of heavily-redacted notes on their evaluations after filming was completed.
But these were far from a formal research paper and included no explanation as to what Neubauer was doing and why, or what his researchers had learned.
Kellman went on running the restaurant for another five years but with Shafran out of the picture and Eddy no longer alive, the venture rather lost its ouster.
He went on to work as an insurance consultant while Shafran became an attorney.
No one has ever apologized to Shafran or Kellman, and the Jewish Board declined to take part in the documentary.
A spokeswoman told AFP it was “committed to providing identified Neubauer study participants access to their records in a timely and transparent manner.”
It is not the kind of language that sits easily with the brothers, however.
“They refer to us as participants,” says Kellman. “We weren’t participants, we were victims.”
“That such life-destroying social-engineering should come to boys from a Jewish adoption agency at the insistence of a Holocaust survivor gives this story a devastating kick.”
“The brothers eventually learn that they had been part of the Neubauer-Bernard experiment, an ethically dubious nature-versus-nature study of twins that grew up in separate households conducted in secret with Louise Wise Services, the adoption agency where the brothers were found.”
The optics of why they were denied that information also carries a dark implication: Because they were put up for adoption and because they were adopted by Jewish families in the Sixties, their lives were deemed less valuable.
despite not having grown up together, they shared the same exact mannerisms, even sitting the same way. They were all wrestlers, liked the same colors, had the same taste in older women, and even bought the same brand of cigarettes
the triplets were part of a secret study in which newborn identical siblings put up for adoption were separated for the purpose of psychological and behavioral experimentation. The babies all came from the Louise Wise agency, and were monitored for years. The adoptive parents were simply told their children were being followed for a study about the development of adopted children. In reality, it was to determine how much of a person’s behavior is hereditary and how much is shaped by their environment (nature vs. nurture), using identical siblings raised in different households as the control group.
As Bobby says, “This is, like, Nazi shit.”
The triplets weren’t the only multiples in the study, the results of which were never published, its full roster of participants never named, and its express purpose never fully elucidated. As Three Identical Strangers digs into the study’s ramifications—and the fact that these men were denied access to information about their biological parents and siblings that could have been life-saving in regards to their mental health (a plot point we won’t spoil)—a sweet story becomes a disturbing cautionary tale about the seedy underbelly of science which operates at the expense of humanity.

Peter B. Neubauer, 94, Noted Child Psychiatrist, Is Dead
By Jeremy Pearce, NYT, March 3, 2008
Dr. Peter B. Neubauer, a child psychiatrist and researcher who raised public alarms early on about the possible effects of television [Talmud-Vision] violence on the emotional development of children, died on Feb. 15 in Manhattan. He was 94.
Dr. Neubauer’s death was confirmed by his family.
In 1960, as part of a Columbia University panel looking at the issue, Dr. Neubauer contended that television could provoke nightmares in young viewers and lead to emotional problems. He sparred with another panel member, the Random House publisher Bennett Cerf, who defended television as an intellectual tonic. Dr. Neubauer replied that repeated displays of violence “underwater, over water, on the ground and in the air” could have only a malignant influence, especially for children from the ages of 4 to 7.
Dr. Neubauer, who was also a psychoanalyst and a student of Sigmund Freud’s daughter Anna, long held prominent platforms in child psychology. From 1951 to 1985, he was director of the Child Development Center of the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services in Manhattan, where he studied the emotional health and development of prepubescent children.
Dr. Samuel Abrams, a psychiatrist in private practice and chairman of the Anna Freud Foundation, said that Dr. Neubauer had “distinguished himself in articles about core traits in children and those with unusual environmental circumstances, such as the one-parent child.” In 1962, Dr. Neubauer wrote a Freudian analysis of the subject, “The One-Parent Child and His Oedipal Development.”
Beginning in the 1950s, Dr. Neubauer was frequently quoted in The New York Times and other publications, offering consoling words for parents of troubled children and advocating for sensitivity in dealing with childhood challenges including nursery school and summer camp. He found gunplay among boys to be commonplace and probably encouraged by watching television, but he wanted to better understand the reasons for children’s aggressive impulses and find ways to guide them to more constructive ends.
Peter Bela Neubauer was born in Krems, Austria. He earned his medical degree at the University of Bern in 1938. Dr. Neubauer later left Switzerland and came to New York in 1941. He trained at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute before joining the Child Development Center.
From the 1970s to his death, Dr. Neubauer was a co-editor of “The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child,” an annual review of new findings in child therapy and analysis published at Yale.
He was a former president of the Association for Child Psychoanalysis and a member of the board for the Sigmund Freud Archives.
Dr. Neubauer continued practicing in Manhattan until earlier this month. He is survived by two sons, Alexander, of Cornwall, Conn., and Joshua, of Los Angeles; a sister, Ruth Gunsberg of Kibbutz Dalia, near Haifa, Israel; and two grandchildren.
In 1982, Dr. Neubauer turned to studying the effects of horror films and likened their gory images to television’s. He concluded that children with a healthy home life could usually see the difference between fantastic images and reality. But he also found that children from emotionally turbulent families sometimes made links between frightening images and their relationships at home.
Dr. Neubauer found that the film “The Wizard of Oz” provoked the most fearful responses. The film seductively mixed realism with fantasy, he said, and presented the actress playing the dream character of the witch in another role, that of a neighbor, which deeply troubled many child viewers.
