The Occult Roots of Nazism: Secret Aryan Cults and Their Influence on Nazi Ideology
Tauris Parke, 2004 - 293 Seiten
"Sixty years after the defeat of the Third Reich the complexities of Nazi ideology are still being unravelled. This book has provided the first serious account of the way in which Nazism was moulded by powerful occult and millenarian sects that thrived in Germany and Austria at the turn of the century. Their ideas and symbols filtered through to nationalist-racist groups associated with the infant Nazi party, and in time exerted a strong influence on Himmler's SS. Their fantasies were played out with terrifying consequences in the Third Reich: Auschwitz, Sobibor and Treblinka are the hellish museums of the Nazi apocalypse, the roots of which lay in the millennial visions of occult sects. This bizarre and fascinating story contains lessons we cannot afford to ignore."--BOOK JACKET.
