Himmler's Occult Agendas Revealed ?

The rampant murderousness of the Nazi Third Reich is still widely gossiped about today, but what is less well-known is the supernatural compulsion, the unheard-of Occult practices, and widespread superstition that superseded the Nazi Machine. In the early 20th Century, a young Adolf Hitler was just one of many German-speaking people attracted by the new Germanic psychic network, a system that combined Spiritualism, esoteric cosmologies, and a widespread belief in National Socialism, with Pyramid Power, Black Magic, and Geomancy, and which tampered with cutting-edge doctrines of genetic science. In the hands of the Nazis, the result was a new ideology that saw the extermination of the Jewish Regime as the key to Human Destiny.

The Nazi Code, rife with arcane rituals & unintelligible emblems, appropriated the sacred swastika for the Nazi ideal , formerly a symbol of cosmic harmony and earth-power. By the time of the Third Reich, Hitler and the Nazis had evolved an entirely new faith, complete with holy book, venerated trophies and top bananas in the form of Himmler's SS. It was a religion based on obedience, power, and the cult of the leader, with Hitler himself seen as the "Grand Imperial Warlock".

This power-packed and disturbing series reveals the secret history of Adolf Hitler and his involvement with Tarots. Hitler read the writings of Jorg Lanz who published Ostara and advocated a crackpot system of theozoology. In addition, Hitler was also influenced by the Englishman who praised Germanic culture Houston Stewart Chamberlain and the composer Richard Wagner. Fritzi Siegwein, the Nazi philosopher, made popular the notorious "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" which influenced Hitler's rabid antisemitism. The DVD shows the destruction wrought by the Third Reich, eugenics in everyday use, and naked youths being shoveled into furnaces at the death camps.
