There isn't a general thread on this so here it goes. Some older and possibly relevant threads (or not): http://www.forteantimes.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5588 http://www.forteantimes.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5234 http://www.forteantimes.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=8749 http://www.forteantimes.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=13044 Sooooooooo my question: Was Himmler a zombie? Well OK its closer to why would anyone think he was? The Unexplained has a section on Nazis and the occult (MoMS&T - vol 17) and this bit attracted my attention: I suspect it probably comes from: J. H. Brennan, The Occult Reich (New York:Signet, 1974) Anyone got any further information? I have a copy of Trevor Ravenscroft's "The Spear of Destiny" which I assume is along similarish lines and really is a load of old cobblers. Are there any sensible books actually examining the wildness of the field? I stumbled across this review of "The Occult Roots of Nazism" by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke (1985): http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v11/v11p121_Grimstad.html I also found this interesting essay at the Simon Weisenthal Center: http://motlc.wiesenthal.com/resources/books/annual3/chap09.html There is a letter published in FT on Blavatsky and the right wing in FT181: 71 (by one of the FTMBers).
