The Ahnenerbe archives, the secret of the greatest achievements of the Nazis

The Ahnenerbe archives, the secret of the greatest achievements of the NazisThe Ahnenerbe archives hide many secrets. They are unavailable to the public today and are considered to conceal the greatest achievements of the Nazis. Why these documents were never released to the public? What kind of secrets do they hide? These are just some of the questions we’ll try to answer.

The Ahnenerbe archives and the secret society

The Research and Teaching Community of the Ancestral Heritage or Forschungs- und Lehrgemeinschaft des Ahnenerbe was founded in July 1935 by Heinrich Himmler, Hermann Wirth (a Dutch historian obsessed with Atlantean mythology) and Richard Walter Darré (creator of Nazi “blood and soil”).

There is some evidence that the Ahnenerbe existed as early as 1928, when Wirth established the “Hermann Wirth Society” for teaching and spreading his theories. Another candidate for precursor of the Ahnenerbe organization was a research institute for “spiritual prehistory” created by the German state of Mecklenburg in 1932, when the state was governed by the NSDAP.

The Ahnenerbe was created as a registered club as a private and non-profit organization. Funding for the Ahnenerbe primarily came through Darré and his position within the German Ministry of Agriculture, but this association ended around 1936, leaving Himmler in total control of the Ahnenerbe.

The Ahnenerbe was not incorporated into the SS until April 1940, though all but one member of the academic and medical staff of the Ahnenerbe were at least honorary members of the SS and many held significant rank.

The Ahnenerbe was part of Himmler’s plan for the systematic creation of a “Germanic” culture that would replace Christianity, a kind of SS-religion that would form the basis of the new world order. This new culture would be based on the völkisch beliefs of the Nazis, based on the “development of the Germanic heritage”.

While the Ahnenerbe were fervent Nazis and most of their research was based on racist pseudoscience, they rejected the occult thinking of groups like the Thule Gesellschaft, preferring a pragmatic methodology based on Mendelian genetics, Darwinism, and biology.

Incredible research and discoveries

During the war, archaeological expeditions were sent to Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Poland, and Romania with the collaboration of local authorities. The Ahnenerbe also conducted similar operations in occupied Russia and North Africa. They were also very active in the Far East, mostly in Tibet, but the Ahnenerbe did send an expedition to Kafiristan.

A significant amount of Ahnenerbe research involved Tibet, and was carried out by the Sven Hedin Institute for Inner Asian Research. Hedin’s descriptions of hidden cities deep within the Himalayas were as much a source for Nazi interest in Tibet as Blavatsky’s theosophical vision of the East. Though never an official member of the Ahnenerbe, Hedin corresponded with the organization and was present when the Institute for Inner Asian Research was formally established in Munich on January 1943. All documents were placed in the Ahnenerbe Archives.

The SS-Tibet expedition

The SS-Tibet expedition lead by Schäfer was conducted between April 1938 and August 1939. The purpose of the expedition was to establish the origin of Tibetans, but also to collect various artifacts. The organization was particularly interested in the hidden knowledge of Tibetans. There were rumors that Hitler wanted to invade Asia through Tibet.

The SS-Tibet expedition

These rumors have never been confirmed. Schäfer was also assigned a mission to discover the missing link in Darwin’s theory. Whether he discovered it or not, it cannot be said exactly, but there are certainly numerous documents in the Ahnenerbe Archives. An important discovery was made regarding the Yeti, which is said to be a strange bear species and has no connection with humans.

The expedition did gather over fifty live animals that were sent back to Germany for analysis. Many discoveries have been made supporting the „World Ice Theory”.

The Iceland expedition

According to the Nazis, Iceland was considered a holy land. For this reason, the Ahnenerbe succeeded in sending a mission to Iceland in 1938, but it was a thorough failure. It is believed that the funds were insufficient for Nazi specialists to discover the origin of the gods Thor and Odin.

World Ice Theory

This is one of the most impressive Nazi discoveries. The theory is not known in the modern world. It was exposed by Hans Hörbiger, based on the Blavatsky thesis that there had been several moons in the past,  that the approach of these moons results in a polar shift and a cataclysmic Ice Age. Also, these Earth satellites are responsible for changing the human race.

According to the theory, the world itself was created when a giant chunk of ice collided with the sun. Hörbiger died in 1931, but his theory was adopted by some Theosophists, South American occultists who used it to prove the existence of Andean civilization and the lost civilization of Atlantis. It was speculated that the Nazis were working on a special rocket, which was supposed to bring the ice age to Earth and thus, only one race would remain on the planet: the Aryan race.

Institute of Scientific Research

Institute of Scientific Research

The most infamous section of the Ahnenerbe was the Institute for Scientific Research for Military Purposes, which carried out experiments under “Secret” or “Top Secret” classification and was funded by the Waffen-SS and Wehrmacht. This “research” included hideous experiments on live human beings, prisoners of war, and from concentration camps. Over one hundred skeletons were collected by Professor August Hirt, several from live subjects. He has carried out numerous researches, known under the “Top Secret” classification even today. It is likely that the Ahnenerbe Archives are kept away from the general public because of these atrocities.

The Ahnenerbe was also responsible for “cultural-political” (kulturpolitisch) missions in occupied “Germanic” countries (ie. Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands).

Where are the Ahnenerbe Archives?

In 1945, in a time of heavy fighting in Lower Silesia, the Red Army managed to occupy the ancient Altan Castle. There were discovered numerous documents about manipulation, secret weapons and numerous technological findings. 25 railway wagons were only filled with these documents. Subsequently, they went to a special archive of the USSR.

It has been rumored that Stalin built a special building,  a special bunker for the Ahnenerbe Archives. No one has ever known about its existence. There is also a theory that not all documents were captured by the Russians. The most important part, which contains information about UFOs, alien species, but also human evolution, was sent to a secret Nazi base, which is located in Antarctica.
