The German version was titled Sieh: Das Herz Europas.[3]

McClatchie was born in Pasadena, California and attended Hollywood High School. He would go on to graduate from Harvard in 1920. He became an inventor and an electrical engineer, holding several patents.[4] While working at the American vacuum cleaner company, Apex, it was decided a new model should be produce in Stuttgart where McClatchie would oversee production.[5] He studied at Leipzig University and married Rosa Noack in 1922. It was during this time he also saw the rise of Hitler and his National Socialist movement.
