Gods and Beasts: The Nazis and the Occult

"Gods and Beasts: The Nazis & the Occult" (1977) by Dusty Sklar is an interesting study of the relationship between the Nazis and their movement and the occult philosophies that surrounded them. The book traces the involvement of the occult behind the early proto-Nazis including Jorg Lanz von Liebenfels, Guido von List, Rudolf von Sebottendorf and other figures associated with H. P. Blavatsky and her Theosophy movement and their influence on the worldview of Adolf Hitler. The book notes the influence of occult ideas on Hitler and Himmler as well as the Romantic notion of the Aryan race. The book explains the importance of the occult behind the Nazi movement and notes how Hitler's rise to power was mirrored in occult circles. The book also notes the eerie similarities between various more recent cult figures such as the followers of L. Ron Hubbard or Reverend Moon and the rise of Hitler.  (more...)
