The report on findings of a University of Hildesheim study describes the Max Planck Institute for Human Development (MPIB) in the 1960s and 1970s as part of a “network” in which “pedophile viewpoints were accepted, supported and defended”. The founding director of the MPIB, Hellmut Becker, is mentioned several times in this context.
