The planning of the Second World War started when Adolph Hitler
joined a secret society called the Thule Society in 1919. It was in
this group that he found the perverted beliefs that were later to
lead him in his control of the German government.
In the Thule Society:
"... the sun played a prime role... as a
sacred symbol of the Aryans, in contrast to... the moon, revered by
the Semitic peoples. The Fuhrer saw in the Jewish people, with their
black hair and swarthy complexions, the dark side of the human
species, whilst the blond and blue-eyed Aryans constituted the light
side of humanity. ... Hitler undertook to extirpate from the
material world its impure elements."1
In addition to sun (or light) worship, the
Thule Society also
practiced Satan worship:
"The inner core within the Thule Society
were all Satanists who practiced Black Magic."2
The Society was not a working-man's group as it included amongst its
"judges, police-chiefs, barristers, lawyers, university
professors and lecturers, aristocratic families, leading
industrialists, surgeons, physicians, scientists, as well as a host
of rich and influential bourgeois.... "3
The membership of the Thule Society also became
the foundation of
the Nazi Party:
"... the Committee and the forty original members of
the New German Workers' Party were all drawn from the most powerful
occult society in Germany—the Thule Society."4
One of the founders of both groups, the Nazi Party and the Thule
Society, was Dietrich Eckart:
"a dedicated Satanist, the supreme
adept of the arts and rituals of Black Magic and the central figure
in a powerful and wide-spread circle of occultists—the Thule Group.
(He was] one of the seven founder members of the Nazi Party...."
Eckart claimed to be the initiator of
Hitler into the secrets of
Satan worship. He is quoted as saying on his deathbed:
Hitler. He will dance, but it is I who have called the tune! I have
initiated him into the 'Secret Doctrine;' opened his centers in
vision and given him the means to communicate with the Powers. Do
not mourn for me: I shall have influenced history more than any
But it was not just the Thule Society that gave
Hitler the support
he needed to become the leader of the German government. There were
additional sources of Hitler's strength. One who offered an
explanation of Hitler's easy rise to power was Walter Langer, a
noted psychoanalyst. Langer wrote in his book The Mind of Adolph
Hitler that it was his theory that Hitler was himself one-quarter
Jewish and the
grandson of a Rothschild.
There is a great deal of confusion in studying Hitler's family tree.
Adolph's father, Alois Hitler, was the illegitimate son of Maria Anna
Schicklgruber. It was generally supposed that the father of Alois
Hitler was Johann Georg Hiedler.... Alois, however, was not
legitimized, and he bore his mother's name until he was forty years
of age when he changed it to Hitler.
A peculiar series of events, prior to Hitler's birth, furnishes
plenty of food for speculation.
There are some people who seriously doubt that Johann Georg Hiedler
was the father of Alois. Thyssen and Koehler, for example, claim
that Chancellor Dolfuss (the Chancellor of Austria) had ordered the
Austrian police to conduct a thorough investigation into the Hitler
family. As a result of this investigation a secret document was
prepared that proved Maria Anna Shicklgruber was living in Vienna at
the time she conceived.
At that time she was employed as a servant in the home of
Rothschild. As soon as the family discovered her pregnancy she was
sent back to her home in Spital where Alois was bom.5
In a postscript in Langer's book, Robert G.L. Waite adds this
"But even when Langer is mistaken and his guesses prove incorrect,
he is often on the right track.
Consider his hint that Hitler's grandfather might have been a Jew.
There is no reason to believe the unlikely story told by Langer's
informant that Hitler's grandmother Maria Anna Schickelgruber, a
peasant woman in her forties from the Waldvietral of rural Austria,
had had an intimate liason with a Baron Rothschild in Vienna.
But Hitler had worried that he might be blackmailed over a Jewish
grandfather and ordered his private lawyer, Hans Frank, to
investigate his paternal lineage.
Frank did so and told the Fuehrer that his grandmother had become
pregnant while working as a domestic servant in a Jewish household
The facts of this matter are in dispute—and a very lengthy dispute
it has been. The point of overriding psychological and historical
importance is not whether it is true that Hitler had a Jewish
grandfather, but whether he believed that it might be true.
He did so believe and the fact shaped both his personality and
his public policy." 6
It is possible that Hitler discovered his Jewish background and his
the Rothschilds, and aware of their enormous power to
make or break European governments, re-established contact with the
family. This would partially explain the enormous support he
received from the international banking fraternity, closely entwined
with the Rothschild family, as he rose to power.
One thing is certain, however. Hitler started World War II by moving
into Austria first. It has been theorized that he moved into this
country for two reasons. First, he wanted to silence Dolfuss who
Hitler believed knew that he was
a descendant of the Rothschilds,
and secondly, he wished to remove all traces of his ancestry from
the Austrian records.
