At the end of August 2018 Gerold Büschen contacted Einar Magnús following a recent review about the Black Sand project in the German newspaper Nordsee Zeitung. When he read the article, he realized that his ancestor Georg Büschen was the captain of Friedrich Albert. In the article there was an incentive for the descendants of the crew of Friedrich Albert to contact Einar Magnús because he was looking for further information about the characters, their background and their lives after the events in Iceland.

The Radio Bremen TV crew that followed Einar Magnus for two days.

Few days later Einar Magnús went to Germany to meet Gerold and at his home there were invaluable sources and information. Gerold invited Einar Magnús along with radio broadcasters Radio Bremen to his visit, but Radio Bremen had requested Einar to follow him for a documentary about his work and the Black Sand Project.

Einar Magnús, was at this time working on a detailed summary (Treatment) of the script. He was still lacking certain points and information he was eager to find about these 11-day hardships at Skeiðarársandi. It was therefore a big moment when Gerold showed Einar a copy he had made of a testimony, which the captain had written about this experience in the year 1906. There he described precisely in his own words all that happened while the men sought help for 11 days. The book is called "Risen from the dead" and Georg had devoted his writing of the three men who died.

In this book, the captain wrote about the incredible experience of the crew.

His writing was published in a small book that almost everyone had forgotten about - except Gerold. There are only two copies that still exist. That book contain a detailed narration of the incredible threats and risk the crew experience these 11 days in Iceland. For Einar, this was an invaluable discovery and led to an unprecedented vision of on this incredible experience.
