The Occult History of the Third Reich

The Occult History of the Third Reich

The documentary contains mainly black and white as well as some color archival footage, with narration explaining the influences of alternative belief systems (occult, paganism, mysticism, etc.) on the Nazi ideology and Hitler's personal philosophy. It also documents the history and development of ideas and symbols and of the eugenics movement.

In the early 20th century, the young Adolf Hitler was just one of many German-speaking people attracted by a new Germanic mythology that combined ancient legends and esoteric cosmologies with cutting-edge theories of genetic science. In the hands of the Nazis, the result was a new ideology that saw racial purity as the key to human destiny.

There is an element of aesthetic grandeur that no one completely pussy-whipped by social norms (or who is, of course, a member of one of the groups targeted by the Nazis) can be insensitive to when it comes to Nazi Germany, but I do no champion the Third Reich.

This documentary will be of interest to anyone who has read Evola, for instance, and who would like to see an empirical manifestation of one possible social embodiment, by a modern, organized state, of such ideas.

Probably the best documentary I've seen on the Nazi's, due to identifying first causes in a set of ideas - the 'occult' (read: Germanic perennialism/Aryanism) as opposed to economic factors. I.e. it is a rather Hegelian take on this whole period of modern history, as opposed to the somewhat more usual Marxist takes that would seek to identify economic or 'material' causes of Nazi Germany and WW2.

I've watched it and I think it is an excellent documentary that should be included in any modern History class.

It is important to know the cultural and economic backdrop of important historical movements such as the original Nazi-sm.

In this case, it can show us what ignorance and misguided arrogance in frustration can lead to.
