Evil Hitler and the Nazis were obsessed with witchcraft and the occult
ADOLF Hitler’s Nazi ideology was so steeped in the occult that the SS had a division dedicated to learning the truth about witches.
It was set up to try to find evidence that witches had existed and had been hunted to death by the Jews in a twisted attempt to justify the Nazi hatred of Jewish people.
The SS witch division was set up by Heinrich Himmler, and it searched across eastern Europe throughout the Second World War for evidence that witches referred to as “wise women” were persecuted through a Jewish-Catholic inquisition.
In a bizarre claim the SS division alleged the witches had been of “pure German blood”.
Himmler was convinced witches had once been rife in eastern Europe, and not only in folklore.
It led him to study about medieval devil worship, reports The Sun.
Historian Eric Kurlander wrote of the extent of Nazis fascination with the occult in the book: Hitler’s Monsters: A Supernatural History of the Third Reich.
Mr Kurlander said the Nazis believed they had racial superiority because of a doctrine called World Ice Theory.
Hitler adopted this as the party’s official cosmology.
The sick and discredited worldview said the white “Aryan” man was created by divine sperm from aliens in space and he did not evolve like the rest of us.
The Nazis extended the theory to suggest Jesus Christ was a white Aryan with the same blood.
Hitler was a big believer in the supernatural and occult, as was his deputy, Rudolf Hess, who hired an astrologer to draw up his horoscopes.
SS chief Himmler even wanted to find the location of the Holy Grail.
Dr Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda chief, believed the prophesies of French future-teller Nostradamus, and said they showed Britain would be beaten.
One practice used by German naval captains was to use so-called “magical” pendulums when looking for British boats, by holding it over a nautical map.
They crazily believed big swings would mean a British boat was in the water in that area. – Express
