One of the more twisted myths being propagated by ’Regular’
Anglo-American Freemasonry of late is that the Nazi’s persecuted
’regular’ Freemasonry in Germany during it’s reign.
Freemasonry plays the recognition game if it wants to deny that a
particular infamous individual was a Freemason. Usually this is
carried out in regard to Grand Orient Freemasons, which it does not
recognize as being legitimate Masons because it has it’s own
operation called ’Grand Lodges’ set up in their countries, France
being the largest instance.
In Germany at the time the Nazi’s came to power (with the aid of
numerous Freemason High Financiers like Henry Ford) there existed
nine Grand Lodges and Orients.
Three Grand Lodges were were known as ’Old Prussian Grand Lodges’,
which were large, well organized, and contained the bulk of all
Freemasons in Germany. Six were called ’Modern Grand Lodges’, which
were small, isolated, with only a few thousand members each.
One of the groupings had always banned Jews from joining and was
fiercely nationalistic and reactionary in it’s politics. One of the
groupings had always allowed Jews to join and was international and
liberal in it’s politics.
It was the ’Old Prussian Grand Lodges’, which contained the High
Command Officers, Industrialists, and Royal Houses who had always
banned Jews from joining and which was fiercely nationalistic and
reactionary in it’s politics that the American and British Grand
Lodges recognized as being ’regular’. The ’Moderns’, the ones that
allowed Jews to join? ’Regular’ Freemasonry said they were
’irregular’ and ’clandestine’. In other words they did not recognize
the Grand Lodges
that allowed Jews to join as being Freemasons or
Freemasonry what so ever. ’Regular’ Freemasonry is trying to
hoodwink their recognition of the anti-semitic National Grand Lodges
and their non recognition of the non anti-semitic International
The Nazi’s shut down the ’Modern’ Grand Lodges whose membership was
heavily jewish, liberal, and ’international’, but allowed the
’national’ Old Prussian Grand Lodges to carry on after their Grand
Master’s sent formal written oaths of allegiance to ’Mein Furher’,
changed their name to ’The Frederick the Great Association’ (Frederick the Great being German ’Regular’
Freemasonry’s founder and principal patron.), and removed any
obvious Hebraic wording from it’s rituals. When the war was over
’regular’ Freemasonry operating under the guise of ’The Frederick
the Great Association’ changed their name back to what it was before
Crystal Nacht. You won’t see any of this mentioned on any of those
’Is it true what they say about Freemasonry?’ or ’Difficult
Questions about Freemasonry’ web sites that ’regular’ Freemasonry
has mirrored all over the net.
The Scottish Rite had its beginning in France, when in 1754, the
Chevalier de Bonneville established in Paris, a chapter of
twenty-five so-called High Degrees which, including the three
symbolic Degrees, these High Degrees were called the Rite of
Perfection. In 1758 these Degrees were taken to Berlin and placed
under a body called the Council of Emperors of the East and West,
and in 1762 Frederick the Great of Prussia became the head of the
Rite and promulgated what is known as the Constitution of 1762. In
1786 a reorganization took place in which eight Degrees were added
to the twenty-five, and the name changed to the Ancient and Accepted
Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. By this Constitution, Frederick
resigned his authority as Grand Commander and provided that the
government of the new system of Degrees should rest with a Council
of each Nation, to be composed of nine Sovereign Grand Inspectors
General of the Thirty-Third and last Degree of Freemasonry.

There was absolutely no persecution of ’regular’ Freemasonry in
Germany. How could there have been? The Old Prussian ’regular’
National Grand Lodges were filled with Officers of the High Command,
Captains of Industry, Commerce, Finance, Leading Citizens, and
Royalty, most of whom were loyal Nazi Party members themselves. The
very men who brought Hitler to power. All with the knowledge of
American and British ’regular’ Grand Lodge Freemasonry and it’s
hereditary pro-nazi Grand Master the Duke of Kent.
There are lies and then there are damnable lies.

Masons and nine regular Grand Lodges, the numerical
importance of which was very different.

About two-thirds of the brethren belonged to the three

were founded and had their seats in Berlin. They never

In 1922, the Old Prussian Grand Lodges decided to
withdraw from the German Grand Lodges’ Alliance founded
in 1872, explaining: ’There is a border which strongly
differentiates humanitarian from Old Prussian national
Freemasonry. We, the three Old Prussian Grand Lodges
refuse to take part in the general humanitarian
fraternization movement between people in the world.’ .
(Steffens, p. 332)
Some brethren believe that there was only one type of
German Freemasonry which was indifferently persecuted by
Hitler. In fact, several masonic spiritual families
existed side by side in Germany, which reacted and were
treated differently by the Nazis.
In the March 1933 issue, the last one to be printed in
Germany, the Symbolic Grand Lodge (Clandestine, not
recognized as Freemasons by U.G.L.E. & U.S. G.L.’s - FW)
announced that on March 28th, it had resolved to become
dormant. That issue also included the text of a
resolution in support of Hitler, adopted toward the end
of March by the National Mother-Lodge The Three Globes.

Historians tell us that the late Grand Master was Pro Nazi and
travelled the Fatherland in order to better educate the King about
National Socialism, so as to allow the Empire to "come to an
understanding" with The New World Order, European Occultist’s latest

nonsectarian plan; the second is the Roman Catholic
plan, and this is a denominational or sectarian plan,

God’s plan is dedicated to the unification of all races,
religions and creeds. This plan, dedicated to the new
order of things, is to make all things new -- a new
nation, a new race, a new civilization and a new

recognized and called the religion of ’The Great Light.’

Providence has chosen the Nordic people to bring in and
unfold the new order of the world. Records clearly show
that 95 per cent of the colonists were
Providence has chosen the Nordics because the Nordics
have prepared themselves and have chosen God. They are
not church worshippers, for they worship God’s word--the
Holy Bible. The Nordics are the great Bible-reading
people of the world today, and the
Nordics--Anglo-Saxons--were the first people to print
the Holy Bible in great quantity, and they were known as
the people of a book, that book being the Holy Bible.
But, in order to read the Bible, it is necessary to know
how to read. In the Nordic race there is no illiteracy.
In Norway there has been no illiteracy for more than a
hundred years. Another fact that shows clearly that the
Nordics are God’s chosen people this time is they are
always looking for more light on the mission of life.
Looking at their station of life, these great
Bible-reading people should open the eyes of the world.
King Gustaf of Sweden is a great light in the
nonsectarian Masonic Brotherhood, and King Haakon of
Norway is a Masonic light in Norway. The late King
Christian of Denmark was a Masonic spirit in his
Denmark; also King George of England is a Masonic light
to his Anglo-Saxon people.
Just as Providence has chosen the Jewish race--the
Children of Israel--to bring into the world
righteousness by carrying the ’Ten Commandments’ which
emphasize ’Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy,’
so also Providence has chosen the Nordic Race to unfold
the ’New Age’ of the world--a ’Novus Ordo Seclorum.’

The city is in turmoil. The Kaiser’s republic has collapsed with the
defeat of Germany in the First World War, and the whole country is
up for grabs. It appears as if Germany is about to fall apart into
the warring city-states from which it had been assembled nearly
fifty years ago. The victorious Allies are demanding enormous
concessions from Germany. The Russian Revolution has been in full
swing for a year, and German soldiers returning from the front are
being cajoled into helping midwife the same type of Communist regime
amid the ashes of the Second Reich
Kurt Eisner--an intellectual and a Jew,
a defender of the League of Nations--takes the initiative and
proclaims a Socialist Republic in Munich on the seventh of November,
1918. It looks as if there is going to be a Communist regime in
Germany-- or, at least, a Socialist one in Bavaria--after all.
Hysteria grows among the nationalists, and with it despair that
their nation is on the verge of realizing the dreams of Marx and
Engels as codified in their famous Manifesto. Germans are
bewildered, shocked... stunned into a kind of nervous stupefaction.

Within forty-eight hours there is a meeting of the Thule Gesselshaft.
The Thule, a mystical society based in part on the theosophical
writings of Guido von List and Lanz von Liebenfels--which is to say,
an amalgam of Eastern religion, theosophy, anti-semitism, Grail
romance, Runic mystification, and Nordic paganism--meets every
Saturday in spacious rooms at the elegant Four Seasons Hotel in
There are roughly 250 members of the Thule in Munich... and
over fifteen hundred in Bavaria. On that day, November 9, a bizarre
individual, an occultist, an initiate of the Eastern mysteries in
Turkey as well as of Freemasonry, and the leader and founder of the
Thule--the self-styled Baron Rudolf von Sebottendorff--makes an
impassioned plea to the assembled cultists for armed resistance to
the Reds. This plea eventually degenerates into a monologue on
runes, German racial theory, Nordic mythology, and other arcane
lore. No matter. Most of his listeners know what to expect.
are, in fact, members of the supersecret, superracist, and
superoccult "German Order Walvater of the Holy Grail," or
Germanenorden, which is using the name Thule Gesellshaft--or
Society, a "literary-cultural society"--as a cover to confuse
Munich’s fledgling Red Army, which is on the lookout for right-wing
extremists. Sebotendorff himself is Master of the anti-Semitic
Germanenorden’s Bavarian division under its leader and founder,
The Thule cultists--whose symbol is a
long dagger superimposed on a swastika--need no encouragement. They
begin stockpiling weapons in secret supply dumps in and around

the Pan-Germans under editor Julius Lehmann, the German School Bund,
the Hammerbund... and an organized resistance movement is born.
the mystical and clandestine labors of the past twenty years
involving a series of secret occult organizations with elaborate
initiation ceremonies and complex magical rituals, from the List
Society’s inner HAO (Higher Armanen Order) to the Order of the New Templars, will soon culminate in a pitched battle in the streets of
Munich between the neo-pagan Thule Society and the "godless
February 21, 1919.
The idealistic but hapless Kurt Eisner--who
preceded political speeches with symphonic concerts -- is
assassinated by a young count and would-be Thulist. The police
descend upon Thule headquarters, looking for inflammatory leaflets
and other evidence of Thule Society involvement in the plot. Was the
notoriously anti-Semitic Thule Society somehow responsible for
Eisner’s assasination? Sebotendorff stonewalls, and threatens to
instigate a pogrom if the police don’t leave the Thule Society
alone. The police comply.
April 7, 1919.
A rebel Bavarian Soviet Republic is proclaimed in
Munich as the legitimate minister-president of Bavaria flees north
with his council to the town of Bamburg to prevent the Communists
from taking over the government. The Thule organizes among the
anti-Communist factions in Munich and Sebottendorff begins
conspiring with the "exiled" Bavarian government in Bamberg for a
April 13, 1919.
Sebotendorff is away at Bamburg, busy organizing a
Freikorps (Free Corps) assault on Communist headquarters, when a Red
Army unit raids Thule Society offices and arrests it’s secretary,
the Grafin Hella von Westarp, and seizes the Thule membership lists.
Six more Thulists are arrested at their homes, including the Prince
von Thurn und Taxis, a well-connected aristocrat with blood
relations among the crowned heads of Europe.
April 30, 1919.
Walpurgisnacht. The High Holy Day of European
Paganism and Witchcraft. The Red Army executes the captured Thulists
and other hostages, shooting them against a wall in a courtyard of
Luitpold High School. It is probably the worst mistake they could
The next day, an obituary appears in Sebottendorff’s Munchener
Beobachter--a newspaper which a year later become the official Nazi
propaganda sheet, the Volkishcer Beobachter [under Alfred
Rosenberg]--giving the names of the seven murdered cultists and
laying the blame on the doorstep of the Red Army. The citizens of
Munich are finally outraged, shaken out of their lethargy. Thulists
continue their well-organized campaign of agit-prop against the
Communist regime. The people take to the streets.
The Free Corps--twenty thousand strong--marches on Munich under the
command of General von Oven. For the first time in history, storm
troopers--members of the Ehrhardt Free Corps Brigade--march beneath
a swastika flag with swastikas painted on their helmets, singing a
swastika hymn. As they enter the city, they find that the Thule has
managed to organize a full-scale citizen rebellion against the
Soviet government. They join forces.
When the dust settles on May 3, the Communists have been defeated in
Munich, politically and militarily. Hundreds of people, including
many innocent civilians, have been senselessly slaughtered in their
streets and homes by the crusading "Whites" with the swastika
banners. But there will be no Socialist or Communist government in
Germany until after World War II, over twenty-five years later, and
even then it will rule over half of the country and will take its
orders from Germany’s most despised enemy, the Soviet Union.
But now, so soon after the victorious march of the Freikorps through
the streets of Munich, the threat of a Soviet regime in the rest of
Germany is still very real. Units of the navy are in mutiny, raising
the red flag over Germany’s battleships. France will march into the
Ruhr Valley, Germany’s industrial heartland. But the spectacular
success of the Freikorps has aroused the admiration of
anti-Bolshevik forces all across Europe. In Riga, the newly formed
Latvian Republic begs for Freikorps assistance to defend their
country against the Bolsheviks and even the British support it’s
decision. Hence, Freikorps units move to the defense of Latvia until
the British themselves have to intervene to free Latvia from the
death grip of these rabid proto-Nazi brigands.
Even Germany’s own right wing is divided into two camps: those in
favor of restoring the monarchy and seperating Bavaria from the rest
of Germany, and those in favor of a unified Greater German Reich,
without a monarch but with a leader, a leader with vision. A German
messiah. A Fuhrer. Where is that Fuhrer to be found?
Unwittingly, the Thule Gesselschaft provides the answer. Meeting in
the expensive Four Seasons Hotel, the leading industrialists and
aristocracy of the city, along with a generous helping of local
police and military officials, are designing a two-pronged strategy
of political activism. The Thule Society will do the organizing,
will make the right connections among the society figures, the
wealthy capitalists, the intelligentsia. They will stockpile
weapons. They will organize units of the Free Corps, particularly
the Ehrhard Brigade (which will become an official unit of Germany’s
navy as the Ehrhardt Naval Brigade and, eventually, subsumed into
Himmler’s SS) and the Freikorps Oberland.
But another arm of the Thule has already begun recruiting-- not
among Munich’s "beautiful people", the rich and the powerful-- but
among the working people, the lower and middle-class citizens who
have been hit hardest by the civil wars, the enormous rates of
inflation, the chaos and confusion.
There will be no overt
involvement of the Thule Society in this group, which is to be
called instead the German Workers Party and which will be led by a
serious, humorless, railroad employee and locksmith named Anton Drexler. They will meet in a beer hall. Perhaps between the two
groups--the Thule with its academics, nobles, and factory owners
meeting at the Four Seasons, and the German Workers Party with its
rought-and-tumble factory workers meeting in beer halls-they will be
able to form a united front against Communism, "international"
Freemasonry, and world Jewry.
It is one of the more recurring facts of the occult secret societies of their habit of
superficially turning on their own current public petina’s when
they sense opportunity presented by political wind blowing in a
new direction, then simply resurfacing under a new nom-de-plume
when the advantage of the situation has been taken. In order to
detect and understand this it is necessary to have some
background on the core theology of this occult battle.
essence of it is this, which we hope to expand on in the future:
that "God" of the Bible -
Jehova or Yahwah (YHWH) is not god but
the jealous and vengeful Satan, and that Samael (Satan) is the
real God of Light who is endevouring to "Free" man into
"Liberty" from the yoke of Jehova who wants to keep us in
ignorance. Hence the Serpent (or Dragon as they prefer to refer
to him as) is the "God" of Wisdom.
This theology is always
consistent, please refer to the belief system of the Gnostics, Mandeans, Goths, "St. John" Christians et all. You will also
find this completely agrees with the writing’s of the
Freemason’s if you pursue some of the treatises of their more
well known authors, as well as of course the accusations made
against the Knights Templar. The Occult Religion of the Nazi’s
is entirely consistent with this. The objective is destroying
the "yoke" of Jehova and as the biggest advocate of Jehova is
the "Jews" then that is why they are singled out for "special"
Of course there has been some Jewish Sects who have
incorporated elements of this heresy in their secret doctrines,
such as the early Judeo-Gnostics and probably the infamous Benjamites. It is a very tangled tale but the important point to
always remember is that the objective is not ascendancy of
whatever current public organizational device they are using but
the ascendancy of the idea; the idea that Samael is the God of
Light, Liberty and Wisdom, while
Jehova is the God of Darkness,
Tyranny and Ignorance.]
Within a year, this project of the Thule Gesellschaft will become the
NSDAP: the National Socialist German
Workers’ Party. The Nazi Party. It will sport a swastika flag and a
corporal who had been sent by the German Army to spy on the
organization: Adolph Hitler.
And by November, 1923, the tiny German Workers Party will have grown
to enormous proportions with many thousands of members, and will
attempt to take over the country in the famous Beer Hall Putsch. The
Putsch will fail, but Adolph Hitler the Fuhrer will be born--not in a
manger like the Son of God he often believed himself to be--but in a
jail cell at Landsberg Prison.

Nazi Party founders
The Thule Society (Thule Gesselschaft), the real inspiration of
Nazism, was founded in August, 1919, in Munich, as an off-shot
itself of the Germanen Order, under the initiative of a strange
character named Baron Rudolf von Sebottendorf.
Among its most
important members were also Max Amann, Anton Drexler, Dietrich
Eckart, Hans Frank, Rudolf Hess, Alfred Rosenberg, Gottfried Feder,
and others who later became Nazi leaders. Adolph Hitler belonged to
the Society as an "associate" or "visiting brother."
The emblem of the Thule Society depicts a German dagger over a sinistroverse swastika of curved legs inscribed in a circle.
The Thule Gesellschaft was a front for a whole web of secret
societies which had similar racist and anti-Semitic occultist roots.
Among the members of these groups were influential people, like the
political theorist Gottfried Feder, whose Hammer Union furnished
cadres to the future Nazi Party.
In this circle of initiates was
also Hans Frank, a lawyer member of the Nazi party and future
governor-general of Poland, who at that time was involved with a
society for heraldic and genealogical research, headed by Dr. W. Daumenlang. Daumenlang was infatuated by his discovery of a swastika
in the coat of arms of the Hohenzollern.
The initiative for the creation of the Thule Gesselschaft came from
Baron von Sebbotendorf, head of the Bavarian branch of the Germanen
Order. In the name of the Thule Gessellschaft Sebottendorf bought
the newspaper Völkischer Beobachter --which later became the
official Nazi Party journal. Dietrich Eckart, for many years
Hitler’s mentor, provided the money for the purchase.
Sebetendorf was a Freemason.
The Swastika is a powerful magical
symbol still used in High Masonic Degrees today. It is the Ancient "Furthore"
Rune Script for the letter "G", the most important and universal
symbol in Freemasonry.
It was to replace the Cross in the post christian pagan religion of the Nazi’s Occult
New World Order.

Her teachings were instrumental to the
creation of the Nazi Party and it’s Darwinian drive to annihilate
the "race polluters" and restore the Aryans with their "pure"
religion of fire, sword, and swastika to their previous glory.
Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) was born in what is now
now Ukrainia. She would be forty-four years old before creating the
Society for which she is best remembered, but her most important
achievements still lay ahead of her.
In 1877--two years after starting the Theosophical Society -- she
would publish Isis Unveiled, an energetic blend of Eastern religion
and mysticism, European mythology and Egyptian occultism, who
rambunctious style would pave the way for her even more ambitious The
Secret Doctrine in 1888. Some authors have written that the
popularity of Blavatsky’s writings in the late nineteenth century was
evidence of an anti-positivist reaction among the middle classes to
the effect that science was having on religious belief. In other
words, science was going to far toward "proving" the errors of faith
that the average person--suddenly up the existential creek without a
paddle or prayer book--embraced the quasi-scientific approach toward
religion represented in The Secret Doctrine.
Darwin had published The Origin of Species in 1859 and this was
followed by the Descent of Man in 1871; both books offered evolution
as the means by which humans were created, as opposed to the
Biblical account found in Genesis. The effect of the theory of
evolution on religion was as great then as it is now; the
controversy over Darwinism caused many people to question the
existence of God, the possibility of redemption, life after death,
etc. People were startled to discover that Biblical myths were at
odds with scientific theories, and thus began to doubt everything
they ever believed. They found themselves spiritually--and, perhaps,
Blavatsky provided a much-appreciated antidote to Darwin even as she
was brazenly appropriating (and reversing) his theory of evolution.
As bizarre as here theories appear today, they were actually quite
brilliant for her time, for they enabled intelligent and educated men

Based on an idiosyncratic selection of various Asian
scripture--including a few she made up herself-- The Secret
Doctrine’s message would later be picked up by the German
occultists, who welcomed the pseudoscientific prose of its author as
the answer to a dream. The smug and condescending attitude of
scientists and their devotees toward the "unscientific" had proved
contagious among many in the newly created middle class, and mystics
began to satisfy the requirements of science in what are patently
unscientific (we may say "nonscientific") pursuits.
general was seen as being largely an urban, sophisticated,
intellectual (hence "Jewish") phenomenon, and this included science,
technology, the Industrial Revolution, and capitalism. The only
wholesome lifestyle was that of the peasant on his "land," and the
naive beliefs of the people of the land, the paganus or pagans--with
their sympathetic magic and worship of ancient gods in the form of
such superstitious practices as fertility rites, the lighting of
bonfires on particular days sacred to the old calendar, and the
whole host of cultural traditions that can be discovered by
consulting Frazier's The Golden Bough--were set up in opposition to
"science," with its suspect lack of human warmth and its cold
indifference to the "gods".
Science in its hubris was treading dangerously close to the
territory claimed by religion (the origin of life, the creation of
the universe, even the existence of God), and in order to get there
it would have to dance a jig all over the occult "sciences." Science
still smarted from the religious furors caused by Galileo and
Copernicus; so rather than mount an all-out attack on God, it was a
lot safer to conduct a rearguard action and go after the ghosts.
But then along came Blavatsky, who took new scientific attitudes as
they were popularly understood and gave them a mystical twist.
Taking here cur from Darwin, she popularized the notion of a
spiritual struggle between various "races", and of the inherent
superiority of the "Aryan" race, hypothetically the latest in the
line of spiritual evolution. Blavatsky would borrow heavily from
carefully chosen scientific authors in fields as diverse as
archaeology and astronomy to bolster her arguments for the
extraterrestrial (or superterrestrial) life-
forms, the creation of animals by humans (as opposed to the
Darwinian line of succession), etc.
It should be remembered that Blavatsky’s works--notably Isis
Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine--appear to be the result of
prodigious scholarship and were extremely convincing in their day.
The rationale behind many later Nazi projects can be traced
back--through the writings of Von List, Von Sebettendorff, and
Von Liebenfels--to ideas first popularized by Blavatsky. A caste system
of races, the superiority of the Aryans (a white race with its
origins in the Himalayas), an "initiated" version of astrology and
astronomy, the cosmic truths coded within pagan myths ... all of
these and more can be found in the ideology of its Dark Creature,

Reich Minister Eastern Territories
Nazi Inner Circle Party Member, closer to Hess and Himmler than
Hitler, Goebbels or Speer who often mocked him in private as the
"Party Philosopher" (Albert Speer: "Infiltration").
Born in Estonia and fled to Germany after the "Reds" took over which
he and other "Whites" continually lobbied Hitler to
by invading Russia. This Eastern contingent of ethnic Germans and
others who fled Lenin and Trotsky formed one of the key groupings in
the inner circle of the party, paralleling other exile communities
in history such as the later Miami Cuban’s for the virulent fervor
of their anti-communism. (Toland: "Adolph Hitler")
Rosenberg’s mystical work "The Myth of the Twentieth Century" was as
important if not more so than Hitler’s Mein Kampf as setting the
party line in it’s radical line to deal "once and for all" with the
"Judeo-Bolshevik Menace", as was his roll as Master Propagandist as
publisher of the Party Newspaper "The Volkischer Beobachter" (Speer:
"Inside the Third Reich").
His statements were virulently Anti-Semitc but it is conceivable
that this was merely a device as part of his contingent’s lobby
efforts to reverse the Russian Revolution. Speer wrote that
Rosenberg often stymied Himmler’s Empire building plans in the East.
Who knows, maybe he was just another crazy nazi occultist, albeit
one of mixed ancestry himself. As they say there is none more
fervent than the converted.
It has been speculated that Rosenberg was model for the character "Meloch"
who lead the Nazi Occult Archeological Team in the Steven Spielberg
classic "Raiders of the Lost Ark" who were in a race with "Indiana
Jones" to discover the Lost Ark of Covenant.
Another among the many people who may have influenced Adolf Hitler’s
in the selection of the swastika as a Nazi symbol was Alfred
Rosenberg, the "intellectual leader" of the Nazi movement.
Born the son of a poor shoemaker, Alfred Rosenberg’s key to his rise
to fame among the Nazi leadership was the possession of a manuscript
he smuggled from Moscow,
The Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion. 
Some claim that he presented the manuscript to Hitler, who saw in it
a blueprint to total power.
Rosenberg told a strange story about how the manuscript came to his
hands. It is probably that he quickly discovered that it was a
forged document. Nevertheless, he also knew that he had in his hands
a valuable document, full of racial and political dynamite, which,
if used to his advantage, may become the key to his personal
Despite some Jewish ancestry, Rosenberg gained access to the Thule
Society by showing the Protocols to Rudolf Hess and to
Dietrich Eckart, who became wildly excited on reading it. Very soon
Protocols viewed its first German edition. German intellectuals were
impressed. Edition followed edition. The book was given away at no
cost and widely distributed. French, Polish, and British editions
appeared. Then it was published also in America, in Italy, and in
After the creation of the Nazi Party, Eckart introduced Rosenberg to
Adolph Hitler, and the young Estonian émigré from Russia became an
active Party member. In 1930 Rosenberg reached a high point in his
career as a Nazi ideologue with the publication of his most
important work, The Myth of the 20th Century. According to a review
of that time, it was, "with Hitler’s Mein Kampf, the most important
work on National Socialism." The book eventually became a best
seller, and sold more than one million copies.
During the World War II, Rosenberg led an art-looting staff which
carried off to Germany more than 21,000 carloads of stolen
paintings, rare books, sculptures, and jewelry. Much of this loot
found its way into the private collections of Reichmarshall Herman
Anxious to be in Hitler’s good graces, some Nazi leaders, Rosenberg
prominently among them, repudiated Christianity completely. Instead,
they wanted to set up a pagan cult of "blood, race, and soil." They
would go back to the dark ritual of dramatic rites of their
The New Pagans resurrected Odin, Thor, and the old gods of primitive Teutons before
Christ’s time. Instead of the Old Testament they
adopted Nordic sagas and fairy tales. They set up a new trinity for
worship---bravery, loyalty, and physical force.
They even created a hymn for the new German Faith Movement:
The time of the Cross
has gone now,
The Sun-wheel shall arise,
And so, with God, we shall be free at last
And give our people their honor back.
Though Hitler did not openly supported
the new paganism, he was not opposed to its ideas. In 1937, he
awarded the National Prize, Germany’s version of the Nobel Prize, to
Alfred Rosenberg, maximum foe of Christianity and leader of the
Neo-Pagans. Rosenberg, the White Russian turned into Nazi
philosopher, wanted a return to the old Teutonic religion of fire,
sword, and swastika.
Protocols of the Wise
Men of Zion purported to be a record of the proceedings of the
Jewish World Congress held in Basel in 1897, at which, it was
affirmed, plans were laid towards total world domination by an
international Jewish conspiracy.
The Protocols, however, proved to be a hoax. They were the
appendix of a work called The Anti-Christ, written by Nilus, a
degenerate Russian writer and the protégé of Soloviev, the
The Protocols were largely copied from the book of Maurice Joly,
Dialogues aux Enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu, published
in 1864. The extraordinary resemblance of the two works could
not be accidental, not only whole paragraphs are almost
identical, but the various points in the programme follow each
other in the same order.
Maurice Joly was a French lawyer, a conservative and a
monarchist. He had no intention of writing a secret document; on
the contrary, he had in mind a satire against the French
emperor, Napoleon III.
The French police soon discovered the author of the anonymous
pamphlet, and Joly was sent to prison for fifteen months. His
book was published in a second edition and then forgotten. Today
scarcely any copies of it can be found.
At the time when Joly published his Dialogues aux Enfers, the
secret societies were particularly active and, as people feared
that a number of Jews had penetrated their ranks, a whole crop
of literary efforts directed against Jews and secret societies
marked the decade.
After thirty years of oblivion, however, Joly’s great day
came--in Russia. A copy of his book fell in the hands of some
agents of the Ochrana, the tsar’s secret police. They wanted to
scare the tsar and drive him to bloodshed. Using Joly’s book as
evidence, they persuaded him that the Jews of the whole world
had devised a secret conspiracy to achieve domination, first
over Russia, then over the whole world.
The superstitious Tsar became frightened. The religious
community was concerned by Soloviev’s warnings about the
imminent coming of the Antichrist. Now Sergei Nilus, one of his
disciples, had made the Antichrist a Jew.
Authors Baigent, Leigh and Lincoln in their "The Holy Blood and
Holy Grail", "The Messianic Legacy", and "The Temple and the
Lodge" Trilogy say that the "Protocols" was actually based on an
authentic document about not the "Jews", but about the
mysterious Priory of Sion.
Prioy of Sion is said to be a Secret Society that was
allegedly behind the Knights Templar, Freemasonry, and
Arthurian and Grail Legends who are working towards the
restoration of World Kingship for it’s "hidden masters". These
"hidden masters" are said to be of the Judaic Royal Messianic
Bloodline descended from
Merovingians, Arcadia, Troy, Jesus,
Mary Magdalene, James, the Benjamites and King David who possess
"powers" that are seemingly supernatural.
The Swastika and the Nazi’s
Was one of the key figures in Nazi Occult Circles
Notwithstanding Adolph Hitler’s claims on the contrary, some authors
believe that it was Karl Haushofer, whom they see as Hitler’s
guiding brain, the one who suggested the Führer the adoption of the
swastika as the Nazi symbol. This is, i.e., the opinion of Pauwels
and Bergier. 
Karl Haushofer was born in Bavaria in 1869. He chose a career as a
professional soldier, and his intellectual gifts and meticulous
attention to detail quickly allowed him to get an appointment to the
Haushofer is known to have had a reputation for precognition,
manifested when he was a young field artillery officer in the
Bavarian army. In 1908 the army sent him to Tokyo to study the
Japanese army and to advise it as an artillery instructor.
assignment changed the course of his life and marked the beginning
of his love affair with the Orient. During the next four years he
traveled extensively in the Far East, adding Korean, Japanese, and
Chinese to his repertoire of Russian, French, and English languages.
During his multiple visits to Japan, Haushofer made the acquaintance
of many influential Japanese politicians and developed a strong
rapport for the Japanese culture which helped in some way to create
the German-Japanese alliance during the war.
Karl Haushofer had been a devout student of Schopenhauer, and during
his stay in the Far East he was introduced to Oriental esoteric
teachings. He became proficient enough to translate several Hindu
and Buddhist texts, and became an authority in Oriental mysticism.
Some authors even believe that he was the leader of a secret
community of Initiates in a current of satanism through which he
sought to raise Germany to world power, though these occult
connections have been denied.
It is also believed that he belonged to the esoteric circle of
George Gurdjieff.  Others claim that he was a secret member of
the Thule Society. Some authors have linked Haushofer’s name with
another esoteric group,
the Vril Society,  or Luminous Lodge, a
secret society of occultists in pre-Nazi Berlin.
It was not until the age of forty-five that he obtained his
doctorate with a brilliant thesis on Political Geography. He
continued developing the ideas expressed on his dissertation, until
developing a whole new doctrine he called geopolitics. 
Among Haushofer’s students at Munich university was a young, bright
army officer: Rudolf Hess. Soon Hess became Haushofer’s favorite
student. Later Hess also became one of the closest associates of
Hitler. He was serving time with Hitler at Lansdberg. It is a well
known fact that it was Rudolf Hess who introduced Haushofer to
Hitler, and also that the professor frequently visited the Führer
while he was writing Mein Kampf in Landsberg Fortress prison after
his failed Munich putsch in 1923.
After Hitler came to power in 1933, Professor Haushofer was
instrumental in developing Germany’s alliance with Japan. Most of
the meetings between high rank Japanese officials and Nazi leaders
took place at his home near Munich. He saw Japan as the brother
nation to Germany, the Herrenwolk of the Orient.
Before the war Professor Haushofer and his son Albrecht maintained
close contacts with British members of the Golden Dawn.  When war
between Germany and England broke out Haushofer tried to use his
influence with Hess in trying to convince Hitler to make peace with
In the Spring of 1941, after having failed to convince Hitler,
Haushofer urged Hess to make a direct contact with the Duke of
Hamilton, a Scottish member of the Golden Dawn. On may 10, 1941,
Hess took off for Scotland. Whether Hitler knew his plans or not is
still subject of debate among historians.
The British government, however, didn’t even want to hear Hess’
peace propositions and put him in jail incommunicado. After Hess’
failure the Nazis denounced him as mentally disturbed.
Karl and Albrecht Haushofer fell from grace. Albrecht became
involved in a failed coup d’etat against Hitler on July 20, 1941.
Frau Haushofer Karl’s wife and Albrect’s Mother was Jewish and this
is undoubtedly related to their distancing themselves from the
Nazi’s virulent Anti-Semitic Program (Toland: Inside the Third
Reich). Karl Haushofer was sent to the infamous Dachau concentration
camp, and Albrecht to the Moabite prison in Berlin, where was later
Some authors claim that, while in Japan, Haushofer was active in the
ultra-secret Green Dragon Society, whose members were under oath to
commit ritual suicide if faced with dishonor. After the war Haushofer was among the Nazi members to be put to trial before the
Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal. But Professor Haushofer never went to
trial. After killing his wife, Karl Haushofer committed suicide in
the traditional Japanese way, cutting his intestines with a sharp
samurai short sword, in a personal, formal ceremony called seppuku
(commonly known as hara-kiri).

2. George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff was born in 1872 in the
Caucasus region of Russia, of Greek, Armenian, and Russian
ancestry. He claimed to have met members of a Hidden Brotherhood
while traveling in Asia, and they initiated him in the occult
tradition. After returning to Moscow Gurdjieff started an
esoteric school where disciples were supposed to be taught how
to reach higher levels of conscience through meditation
exercises. After the school’s success he opened a similar one in
Gurdjieff has always been an enigmatic figure. Some speculate
that he may have been sent by the Russian authorities to Tibet
as a spy. Others affirm that while in Tibet he was actually the
man known as Dorjieff, the preceptor of the Dalai Lama.
According to some sources, it was in Tibet where Haushofer met
Gurdjieff and became one of his adepts. On the other hand, it is
evident that Gurdjieff never held the Nazis in high esteem.
While visiting Berlin during the height of Nazi power he and a
small group of disciples were watching a street parade, which he
begin to satirize loudly. Somebody called the police and he was
about to be hauled to prison, but was eventually dismissed as a
On the other hand, it seems that Haushofer was somehow
influenced by Gurdjieff’s teachings, which held that men are
asleep, just waiting for a strong leader to force them to awake
and become supermen. Gurdjieff also believed in the legend of
the Masters of Wisdom, superhuman intelligences who keep a
careful watch over the destiny of mankind and intervene whenever
human affairs get out of hand. Even more, he believed that he
himself was in direct communication with a source of higher
energy from which, through him, his disciples could draw.
The Vril Society, or Luminous Lodge, was a secret
community of occultists in pre-Nazi Berlin. The Berlin Vril
Society was in fact a sort of inner circle of the Thule Society,
it was also in close contact with an English group known as the
The Vril Society in Berlin apparently sought connection with
supernatural beings in the entrails of the earth, and its
members practiced the techniques which would eventually
strengthen their mastery of the divine energy, the Vril,
empowering them to master people and events.
The term "Vril" came to the attention of the Western world
through the writings of a not well known French author, Louis Jacolliot (1837-1890).
Jacolliot was an avid reader of occult literature, and was
familiar with the work of Swedenborg, of the theosophist
Jacob Böhme and of Louis Claude de Saint Martin. In the course of his
professional career Jacolliot had been president of the tribunal
at Chandernagor, India, and afterwards French consul in
The works of Jacolliot have inspired several writers and
occultists, among them Rudyard Kipling and H. P. Blavatsky.
Among Jacolliot’s many books are:
La Bible dans l’Inde ou la Vie
de Iezeus Christna (1859)
Les Fils de Dieu (1873)
le Christ (1874)
Les Traditions indo-européennes (1876)
La Genèse de l’humanité (1879
L’Olympe brahmanique (1881)
The main theme in his books is that modern civilizations were
originated from a single, primordial nucleus, which was the same
for India, western Asia, and Europe. The Semitic and
indo-European races were not different at the beginning, but the
Semitic races degenerated in the process, while the Aryans
remained pure. A code of law rules civilized people, the Code of
Manu, name of the divine ruler in India, while in Egypt he was
called Menes, Mosses among the Hebrews, and Minos in Crete.
According to Jacolliot, Jesus Christ is but a recent
reconstruction of an old indo-aryan tradition, that of
Iezeus-Christna. Jesus of Nazareth is only a different
characterization of the same personage.
North of Europe a magic civilization has existed for millennia
and its name is Thule. The superior beings of Thule live in huge
caverns in the entrails of the earth. They possess an
extraordinary source of magic energy: the Vril. The theme of the Vril is exalted in most of Jacolliot’s writings. Vril is an
energy latent in man, but he utilizes only a fraction of it. It
is the source of divinity, the source of the coming superman. He
who discovers it and masters its use acquires great powers. He
can become a master of men.
In many of his works, particularly in Les Fils de Dieu, and in
Les Traditions indo-européenes , Jacolliot affirms that he
discovered the existence of Vril among an Indian sect: the Jains,
still active in the regions of Mysore and Gujerat, and counting
millions of adepts.
The discovery of Vril by Jacolliot created extraordinary
interest among European intellectuals, avid of knowledge about
traditional oriental wisdom. Inspired by his writings a group of
Rosicrucians from Berlin founded, by the end of the 19th
the Vril Society to divulge the writings of the French
master. Jacolliot’s ideas were introduced in England by S. L.
Matthews at the Golden Dawn Society, of which he was the Great
With the passage of time, apparently the term Vril fell in
disuse. Interest on Vril was renewed after it was used again in
a novel with occult and prophetic overtones,
The Coming Race,
written by the Baron Edward Bulwer-Lytton.
Bulwer-Lytton was an English writer and occultist better known
as the author of the best seller The Last Days of Pompeii. In
The Coming Race he describes the existence of a superhuman race
of beings living in huge caves in the entrails of the earth.
These beings had developed a strong energy source of psychic
energy --the Vril-- which make them equal to gods. Their plans
are, one day, to take control of the earth and, using his
energy, bring about a mutation of the now dormant human elite,
subjugating afterwards the rest of the low-grade human beings.
Like Gurdjieff, Baron Bulwer-Lytton believed that he was a
storer of Vril. He practiced ceremonial magic and Madame H. P. Blavatsky affirmed he was a Theosophist.
According to Bulwer-Lytton, Vril was a sort of great fluid,
resembling electricity, with which all of life was pervaded. His
"Vril people" accumulated it through yoga-like mental and
physical exercises. The adepts of the Vril Society and the
Society shared the belief that it was possible to get in touch
with the Vril, a belief which they inculcated in Adolph Hitler.
It was precisely to get in touch with the spiritual
"power-plant" of Vril that the Führer created the Ahnenerbe.
The Society for the Study of Ancestral Heritages, the Ahnenerbe,
was an organization founded in 1935 privately by Frederick Hielscher, a mystic and friend of the Swedish explorer
Sven Hedin, and Wolfram Siever’s spiritual teacher.

Germanic runes and other "Aryan symbols". The Ahnenerbe was the

Frederick Hielscher was never a member of the Nazi party, and
was in friendly terms with Martin Buber, the Jewish philosopher.
But his theories had some aspects in common with the esoteric
doctrines of the Nazi leaders. Two years after Hielscher
privately founded the Ahnenerbe, Himmler turned it into an
official organization, attached to the SS.
Finally, in January 1939, the Ahnenerbe was incorporated into
the SS as one of its branches, and its leaders absorbed into
Himmler’s personal staff. At that time it had fifty branches
under the direction of Professor Wurst, an expert on ancient
sacred texts who had taught Sanskrit at Munich University. The
mission assigned to the Ahnenerbe was to locate the origins of
the "Nordic" race which, according to Nazi lore, was of Aryan
But the Ahnenerbe’s multiple branches dealt with a more broad
spectrum of activities. These activities ranged from strictly
"scientific" research --like vivisection practiced on
prisoners-- to espionage, as well as the study and practice of
According to the scant information available about the Ahnenerbe
--its huge archives mysteriously disappeared after the war-- it
seems that Germany spent more money and devoted more resources
on the Ahnenerbe than America did on the atomic bomb. More than
fifty departments in this branch of the SS succeeded in spending
over a million marks on such "scientific" research.
Among the many researches tackled by the Ahnenerbe at enormous

cultures. When the German army invaded the Caucasus in the
Spring of 1942, a strange ceremony took place. Three SS
mountaineers climbed to the summit of Mount Elbruz, the sacred
mountain of the Aryan race, and planted a swastika flag.
The Ahnenerbe organized several expeditions to Tibet. Their
purpose was to locate the origins of the "Nordic" race which
was, according to the Nazi theoreticians, of Indo-Germanic
stock. But the main goal of these expeditions was to get in
touch with the spiritual "power-plant" producer of Vril.
4. The nucleus of Haushofer’s doctrines was a term
originated in his first lecture at Munich university: Lebensraum
(vital space). Later on he was appointed professor of
geopolitics at that University.
Haushofer theories became extremely popular in Germany and all
around the world. Even American scholars were influenced by his
ideas. As Hans W. Weighert put it in an article published in
Foreign Affairs in July, 1942:
". . . the highest eulogy a
political writer could earn was to be called ’the American
Haushofer’ . . . colleges all over the country hurried to
organize ’Institute of Geopolitics.’ "
Haushofer disguised racial mysticism in a veil of geography and
science, providing Germans with a powerful reason to return to
those areas in the hinterland of Asia where the Aryan race
supposedly originated. His appeal for Lebensraum for the German
people and his plans to achieve it were no more than a
justification for international pillage on a grand scale,
virtually a blueprint to world conquest.
Haushofer became an important personage among the Nazi elite. He
was made president of the German Academy and finally became
director of the highly respected Institut für Geopolitik of the
University of Munich. His eldest son, Albrecht, was also a
geopolitician, and occupied the Chair of Political Geography at
the University of Berlin.
Haushofer advised Hitler to enlarge the living space of the
Third Reich by moving out from a powerful territorial hub and by
accomplishing this conquest progressively, step by step,
following the accelerating movement of a growing spiraling sinistroverse swastika.
5. The Hermetic Society of the Golden Dawn was formed in
England in 1887. Its three founding members were prominent
Masonic figures and early members of the first Masonic lodge of
research Quatuor Coronati Lodge No. 2076. It was basically a
society of occultists devoted to the study of magic.
Among its early members were the poet W. B. Yeats, the actress
Florence Farr, the writer Arthur Machen, and the notorious
Aleister Crowley, who in 1905 broke away to found his own Order,
the Argenteum Astrum.
The Golden Dawn was also popular among members of the British
aristocracy. Among its affiliates were the Duke of Bedford, the
Duke of Hamilton, and Sir Ivone Kirkpatrick.
The Rosicrucians claim an ancient origin from Egypt and the
Mystery religions. Their rise, however, can be traced only to
the 17th century with the publication in 1614 of an anonymous
Fama Fraternitas Rosae-Crucis. This document
claimed that Christian Rosenkreutz, a German born in 1378, was
the founder of Rosicrucianism.
The term Rosicrucian is supposed to be derived from the Latin
(rose) and ’crux’ (cross). These two symbols of the Order,
however, are not to be confused with similar Christian symbols
and meanings. Even more, it seems that, at least in some cases,
the swastika, not the cross, has been actually linked to the
In the monastery of Loudum, founded n 1334, several Carmelite
brothers left their names engraved in a staircase, which has for
this reason been named the staircase of the graffiti. Among the
names of these brethren is that of a Brother Guyot, who added to
his signature a rose overlaid by a sinistroverse swastika.

1880’s. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was
heavily influenced by Freemasonry. Its three founding members were

Rudolph Hess was born in Egypt in 1896, the son of a rich exporter
and wholesaler from Bavaria who moved to Alexandria. When Rudolf was
fourteen he was sent back to Germany to attend school.
Like Adolph Hitler, Hess always felt strongly attracted by the
occult. He volunteered for the army as soon as World War I began,
and soon was placed as officer in an infantry regiment. During the
war Hess was wounded twice. When the war ended he went to Munich and
joined the Thule Society. He was only 22.
Hess was one of the hundreds of war veterans recruited in Munich by
Freemason Baron von Sebottendorf  to join the Freikorps. Hess
joined the Freikorps and became an expert street fighter helping
them in getting the leftist revolutionaries out of Munich.
Later Hess joined the German Workers Party. It was in one of its
meetings where he saw Adolph Hitler for the first time and was
instantly captivated by Hitler’s charismatic powers. When the
would-be Führer ended his inflammatory speech Hess was already one
of Hitler’s followers.
A few months later Hess became Hitler’s personal secretary. With
Hitler he participated in the frustrated Munich Beer Hall putsch of
1923. He escaped to Austria, but when Hitler was sent to prison he
gave himself up to the authorities in order to join the Führer at
Landsberg. Some people believe that Hess was instrumental in
Hitler’s decision of adopting the swastika as the Nazi symbol.
Sharing the prison tied even more the homoerotic bond between the
two men. Hess helped Hitler in writing Mein Kampf. It was there when
he told Hitler about his professor, the geopolitician Karl Haushofer.
He introduced Hitler to Haushofer and the professor became a
frequent visitor to Hitler’s cell at Landberg.
When the Nazis took power over Germany and Hitler became the Führer
of he Third Reich, Hess fortune seemed linked forever to Hitler’s.
The Führer named Hess his heir-apparent. On May 10, 1941, however, a
strange incident occurred. Following Haushofer’s suggestion, Rudolf
Hess astonished the world by flying alone from Germany to Scotland
and parachuting near the state of the Duke of Hamilton to contact
some British members of the Golden Dawn and deliver a peace
But the British government paid no attention to Hess’ message and
put him in jail for the rest of his life.
1. The Thule Gesellschaft was
founded in 1919 by Baron von Sebottendorf. Born in Saxony in
1875, he was the son of a Silesian locomotive conductor. His
true name was Adam Rudolf Glauber. He adopted in 1911 the name
Baron von Sebottendorf after the death of the later.
Sebottendorf was a Freemason.
Just before World War I he made several trips to the Near East.
During the Balkan War of 1912-1913, he directed the Turkish Red
Crescent and was named a Master of the Order of the RoseGarland
(Rosenkranz). Expelled from Germany as an undesirable alien (he
had been a Turkish citizen since 1911), he returned to Turkey in
1924. From 1929 to 1931 he roamed through Mexico and the United
By 1919 he founded the Thule Society and elevated himself to the
rank of Grand Master. He exerted considerable influence in high
Inspired by Madame Blavatsky, he brought to life the age-old
Atlantis, calling it Thule. Occultists believe that that
Thule, like Atlantis, was the center of a vanished civilization
whose members had magic powers.
It is believed that Sebottendorf drowned in 1945.
Wolfram Sievers, Anhenerbe Uber...
On the heels of the German army and the SS came the Ahnenerbe, whose
mission it was to provide conclusive proof of the Germanism of
western Russia. Even Hitler was embarrassed:
’Why do we call the
world’s attention to the fact that we have no past? It isn’t enough
that Romans were erecting great buildings when our forefathers were
still living in mud huts; now Himmler is starting to dig up these
villages of mud huts enthusing over every potsherd and stone axe he
The search became ever more frenzied and indiscriminate. At the end
of 1942, while German soldiers were freezing to death
Stalingrad, the Ahnenerbe was ransacking southern Russia for
archaeological and artistic spoils
not only for research but also to
decorate Himmler’s country home at Wewelsburg.
But there was worse to follow. The Ahnenerbe began trawling the
death camps for skulls to buttress its own crackpot racial theories.
As the SS was responsible for the camps, this grisly trade was a
mere formality. But there was a price to pay. After Germany’s defeat
in 1945, the head of the Ahnenerbe, Dr Wolfram Sievers
(images left/right) - who had
been heavily involved in the criminal medical experiments that were
carried out on Jews in concentration camps, all to prove racial
differences and the superiority of the Germanic ’Aryan’ race - was
brought before a war crimes tribunal, found guilty and sentenced to
death. He was executed on 2 June 1948.
The archaeological world of the Ahnenerbe died with Hitler,
and Sievers, and the Ahnenerbe, too, melted away. Many of its top
archaeologists returned, unpunished, to university life, only to
re-emerge as leading academics in postwar Germany. Himmler’s
Wewelsburg Castle, remains as mute testament to the twisted
power of a perverted philosophy.
Hanussen, Hitler’s Magician
In the last days of 1932, Hitler was contemplating suicide.
Released from prison n 1924 after the Beer Hall Putsch got him a
light sentence for what was, after all, high treason, his Mein Kampf
a best-seller, and his Nazi Party back and stronger than ever, he
nonetheless was losing ground in the Reichstag. Hindenberg - the
much-respected and very popular President of the Republic - was not
pleased with the rough- and-tumble crowd that seemed to compose
Hitler’s voting bloc, and various ministers were conspiring against
Hitler to keep him out of government altogether.
In 1932, they were succeeding. Hitler
was facing a crucial election. Members of the Nazi Party were in
danger of defecting to other political organizations. His own
trusted disciples were dividing the Party into warring factions that
could not be controlled
And on Halloween night - the pagan Sabbat of Samhain - his mistress
Eva Braun shot herself.
Although Eva survived what the doctors would later characterize as a
serious suicide attempt, Hitler himself knew he was politically
dead. It appeared as if he had lost the will to fight, and he began
to speak more and more of his own death. He entered the political
campaign a distracted, depressed leader who seemed unable to hold
his fractious Party together. They lost heavily in the Reichstag
five days later - losing seats to the hated Communists - and the
press began publishing the Party’s obituary.
At this nadir of his career, he turned to an old friend whom he had
met years earlier, in 1926, in Berlin. This was Erik Jan Hanussen, a
famous astrologer and master of several occult disciplines who had -
it was said - taught Hitler everything from the body language and
gestures to use in public speaking to what friends and associates he
The Vienese Hanussen - whose real name was
the son of a Jewish vaudeville performer - began his career as what
Americans call a "carny," doing odd jobs in a travelling circus,
until he began his own newspaper and threatened to publish vile
things in it about people he knew unless they paid up! This
small-time blackmailer soon became interested in hypnosis and
mediumship and published several books on the subject, eventually
becoming the darling of the international socialite set, a man who
never failed to entertain at parties but who also provided more
serious assistance to those of his hosts who needed a horoscope
drawn up or a spell cast.
He dyed his hair blond to fit his new
persona as a Danish aristocrat, and dived into the frantic, heady
atmosphere of the early 1930’s Berlin competing with astrologers,
clairvoyants, and mediums of every description. Although he had
never cast Hitler’s astrological chart before, now in the late days
of 1932 with Hitler morose and on the verge of doing himself damage,
Hanussen erected his natal and probably a transit or progressed
chart and appeared before Hitler with an eerie prognosis.
Hanussen told his host that there were good times ahead, but that a
few "obstacles" remained that had to be eliminated. The implication
was oddly surreal. The "obstacles" were not actual people or
circumstances. Instead Hanussen claimed, Hitler was the victim of
some sort of hex or magical spell.
History has not recorded who might have been responsible for this,
and it is possible that all Hanussen knew - or claimed - was that
"evil occult influences" were around Hitler, causing him to lose his
edge. We may fantasize about a lodge of German magicians, summoning
angelic forces to thwart the attempts of Hitler and his Nazi Party
to gain power in Germany. We may wonder if a witch or sorcerer -
operating alone in some mountain fastness of the Obersalzberg,
perhaps - was casting a spell against Hitler for something as
relatively trivial as a broken promise or unrequited love, and
thereby altering the course of European history forever. We will
certainly never know the actual dimensions of this baneful influence
around the Fuhrer, but the outcome of Hanussen’s meditations was
nothing short of spectacular.
In order to rid himself of this evil spell, he said, one would have
to go to Hitler’s hometown. At the time of the full moon. At
midnight. In a butcher’s backyard.
And remove a mandrake from the ground.
Now a mandrake is the man-shaped root famous throughout European
folklore for its occult and medicinal properties.
According to some
traditions, one had to stop one’s ears with cloth or cotton before
pulling the root from the earth, as it would emit a piercing scream
that would shatter the eardrums. A dog was sometimes used to pull
the root from the earth as the magician kept his hands clasped
around his own ears. The resulting shriek - it is said - normally
killed the dog.
The mandrake (Mandragora officinarum) is also known for its powers as an aphrodisiac, and as
an amulet of protection. We must assume that Hanussen was thinking
of this last property in connection with Hitler. Also, the
significance of the butcher’s yard should not be ignored: such a
place would have given the surrounding earth the peculiar quality of
a veritable Teutonic orgy of blood, dismemberment, death, and pain,
which would have a mystically absorbed by the root itself.
Hanussen decided to perform the necessary rituals himself and set
off for Hitler’s birthplace in Austria, returning on New Year’s Day
1933 with the amuletic root and with a prediction: that Hitler’s
return to power would begin on January 30, a date roughly equivalent
to the pagan
Sabat of Oimelc: one of the four "cross-quarter" days
of the witches’ calendar.
It seemed an outrageous prediction but - after a series of bizarred
coincidences and half-baked conspiratorial machinations on the part
of his opponents - Hitler went from washed-up political has-been to
Chancellor of Germany with dizzying speed in thirty days and, on
January 30, 1933 he assumed power.
Hanussens’s impossibly optimistic prediction came true to the day.
That was not the end of Hanussen’s ability to predict the future,
however, for on February 26 of that same year - during a séance held
that evening at his own lavishly furnished "Palace of Occultism" on Lietzenburger Strasse and attended by Berlin’s movers and shakers -
he predicted that the Communists in Germany would attempt a
revolution, signaled by the destruction (by fire) of an important
The next day, the Reichstag was in flames and Hitler had all the
excuse he needed to go from Chancellor of Germany to Fuhrer of the
Third Reich. European history had been changed forever, and once
more the Society Seer was right on target. But, six weeks later in
April of 1933, Hanussen would be dead: murdered in a forest outside
Berlin by agent or agents unknown.
There was speculation that Hitler
ordered the execution since Hanussenn "knew too much" or perhaps
might even have had connections to the Communist Party (hence his
accurate prediction of the Reichstag fir; some mediums and psychics
- Hannussen was no exception - are known to "enhance" their
abilities by gathering intelligence on their clients ahead of time
or by bugging the rooms in which seances are held, etc. In fairness,
however, no amount of dirty tricks could have explained Hanussen’s
accurate prediction of Hitler’s enormous success in January).
Another version had it that Hanussen’s murder enraged the
and that he ordered the death sentence for its perpetrators, Karl
Ernst, who was executed during the Rohm purge with a bewildered "Heil
Hitler" on his lips. Another story, that SA leader Count Wolf
Heinrich von Helldorf had Ernst arrest and murder Hanussen because
the count owed him money, is also current. Hanussen was said to have
thrown orgies at the count’s Wannsee villa, where attractive young
ladies - usually "actresses" - were thrown into hypnotic trances and
made to mime orgasms.
The count was a rather degenerate sort who
went through money like schnapps, and wound up owing a great deal to
Hanussen, who carried the count’s markers with him where ever he
went. Needless to say, the markers were never found (which either
proves that the count killed Hanussen and removed the IOU’s from the
body, or that the story is completely fictitious and never happened;
take your pick).
And then, of course, Hanussen’s father was Jewish, which would have
been reason enough to execute the inordinately influential seer.
Unfortunately we will never know what happened, for Hannusen died as
he had lived: the Count St. Germain of Weimar and early Nazi
Germany, a complete and compelling mystery.
