The Ahnenerbe Discovered Ancient Aryans


In Indiana Jones, Hollywood has depicted wartime Germans as searching the globe looking “for all kinds of religious artifacts” so “Nazi scientists” can use their arcane power to rule the world. Indeed, we see this presented in both Raiders of the Lost Ark and in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. This is pure fantasy, but a suggestion that academics have pushed. What is not known to most Americans, and Europeans for that matter, is the truth. Heinrich Himmler, chief of the SS, was, after all, an extremely educated man and avid reader and investigator of ancient Aryan lore, Germanic traditions, and the primeval Teutonic past. This author can appreciate such enthusiasm. In 1924, Himmler was an organizer for the National Socialist Freedom Movement, which was formed in the wake of the government’s ban on the National Socialist German Worker’s Party. This was after Hitler was arrested, tried and imprisoned for an attempt to overthrow the Bavarian government.

Traveling on train to Passau in the Old Bavarian town of Landshut, Himmler took the time to read Cornelius Tacitus’ Germania, in which he presented a rather positive analysis of the ancient Germanic tribes that live in the far north of the Roman Empire, beyond the Rhine. It glorified their heroism in battle, their expressive hospitality, their strong family virtues, and their tall stature, red and blond hair and imposing physique. Himmler called Germania “a wonderful portrait of how high, pure and capable our ancestors were.” He concluded: “This is how we will become again, or at least part of us.” Himmler was far from the cold-hearted psychopath portrayed in the mainstream media and in academia. He had a genuine love for his people that rivaled that of his idol Adolf Hitler. The Aryans were the true lost race of the giants, described in this author’s earlier book on the subject. In 1935, Himmler created an elite research institute within the SS that undertook the same mission. He called it the Ahnenerbe, the name coined from an obscure Germanic word meaning “something inherited from the forefathers.” (Pringle 2). Its purpose was to investigate and document the vast history of white Aryan accomplishment stretching back to the Paleolithic or Old Stone Age. (Pringle 2) So much of our history, the story of our people going way back to a remote, primordial age, has been wiped from the memory of man.

For the first time in human history, there was an attempt to re-discover true Aryan origins and to clarify Germanic prehistory. No one nation has put such an effort before or since into re-discovering and documenting our prehistoric past. If this was Himmler’s only true contribution to history, then he should be considered a hero of our people. Although his main concern was validating Germanic Aryan origins, his research has shown that the Aryan race has roots far beyond just Celtic, Slavic or Germanic implications, but shows that the Aryan race demonstrates unity of language, ethnicity and culture going back to a greater antiquity. Academics, on the other hand, insist that SS research was shoddy, poorly executed and aimed only at deceiving others into supporting the idea of Germanic superiority. The author Heather Pringle, in her typical work of Jewish-inspired propaganda, called these researchers “myth-makers.” She wrongly attacked Hitler’s belief that Aryans are the founders and bearers of civilization. In the book she stated: “These were the Aryans, a fictional race of tall, willowy, flaxen-haired men and women from Northern Europe.” However, they were not just a myth, or a figment of Hitler’s imagination, as Pringle insists. The Aryans are a real ancient people, with roots in Central Asia. Another word for “Aryan” is Proto-Indo-Europeans, the founders of both European and many Central Asian civilizations including that of Iran and India. The name Iran comes from a phrase meaning “land of the Aryans.”

The Christians of Rome did much to eradicate our true history. Some Christian monks did document to an extent, in several volumes, the oral traditions of our ancestors. But much of the tales were deliberately Christianized. Himmler was aware of Christianity’s negative impact on Aryan history. His goal was to undo this blight against our people, and to regenerate a true and revived Aryan faith. He took his work very seriously, and so did those scientists working with him.

Starting with the destruction of the Library of Alexandria onward, Christianity initiated the greatest destruction of racial knowledge and history the world has ever known. NS philosopher, writer and leader Alfred Rosenberg further explains: “Late Roman, Christian, Egyptian or Jewish ideas have penetrated into the soul of Germanic man and partly destroyed it.” We must remember that the late Roman period was distinctively culturally degenerate and late Egyptian culture was dominated by petty mysticism and non-white domination. Both Roman and Egyptian cultures began as Nordic civilizations, but like this country now, were influenced by others and destroyed in the process.

Christianity had only succeeded in dimming the racial memory of the German Aryan race. Himmler knew that there had to be evidence of a much more distant prehistoric origin to Germanic and Aryan civilization. Surprisingly, authors Graham Hancock, John Anthony West, Robert M. Schoch, Lair Scranton, Frank Joseph and others have been claiming that there is evidence of a forgotten chapter in human history, and that our ancient myths are not just fanciful stories but rather fragmented memories of that long lost past. National Socialism, on the other hand, anticipated such revelations decades before.

In January 1942, Hitler commented that:

Legend cannot be extracted from the void, it couldn’t be a purely gratuitous figment. Nothing prevents us from supposing, and I believe, even that it would be to our interest to do so, that mythology is a reflection of things that have existed and of which humanity has retained a vague memory. In all the human traditions, whether oral or written, one finds mention of a huge cosmic disaster . . . In the Nordic legend we read of a struggle between giants and gods. In my view the thing is explicable only by the hypothesis of a disaster that completely destroyed a humanity that already possessed a high degree of civilization.”

Hitler’s words are almost identical to the words of Graham Hancock. Those who think Hitler was nothing more than ranting fool must research further his writings and statements, not only regarding the Jewish question but also his views on race and Aryan origins, which he touches upon briefly in Mein Kampf. But in Mein Kampf, Hitler makes clear who created civilization and what the result would be if that race died out.

Every manifestation of human culture, ever product of art, science and technical skill, which we see before our eyes to-day, is almost, exclusively the product of the Aryan creative power. All that we admire in the world today, its science and its art, its technical developments and discoveries, are the products of the creative activities of a few peoples, and it may be true that their first beginnings must be attributed to one race. The existence of civilization is wholly dependent on such peoples. Should they perish, all that makes this earth beautiful will descend with them into the grave.”

He even gave a serious warning and prediction to White America.

In North America the Teutonic element, which has kept its racial stock pure and did not mix it with any other racial stock, has come to dominate the American Continent and will remain master of it as long as that element does not fall a victim to the habit of adulterating its blood.”

While many are familiar with myths of Atlantis and Graham Hancock and Robert Schoch’s own Atlantean theories, the National Socialists and their intellectuals did more comprehensive research on the Atlantean origins of White Humanity than anyone in the last eight decades. In the 1920s, NS philosopher Alfred Rosenberg and writer Rudolf John Gorsleben championed the idea of the Northern Atlantis, known as Thule. According to NS doctrine, the Aryans are a separate species from other non-white peoples including Jews. Indeed, there is strong genetic evidence for this. The purest of Northern Europeans, for instance, are found to possess RH Negative blood, which lacks the Rheses monkey gene, which all other people on Earth have. There is also strong physiological, chemical and anatomical differences beyond skin pigmentation and hair type that separates white Aryans from other racial types. Also, since there is more diversity within the white race than in any other race, there is evidence of significant genetic drift. Those with RH Negative blood have a hard time intermixing with those of RH Positive blood, which includes attempts of Northern European females mating with black African males. The females, in this horrid circumstance, have to have repeated injections to maintain the pregnancy and then C-sections are a rule. Comparing blacks and Asians to whites, you will see a great difference in their buttocks, legs, feet, the way they walk. Observing how one walks indicates race, as blacks naturally walk very different from Aryans, as do Asains, Native Americans and Mestizos. The Anhenerbe was also responsible for amassing an extensive catalog of white racial types. Marxist academics blast the science of measuring skulls, which SS archaeologists and researchers perfected, as pseudo-science.

One of Himmler’s ambitions was to travel to Iceland to review the ancient Scandinavian myths and legends and to examine and record runestones and other Viking and pre-Viking artifacts. Like myself, Kyle Hunt and others, Himmler believed there was evidence that the Aryan race did not evolve from lower African apes, but descended from the gods as was described in the Eddas and other Icelandic sagas. Himmler also believed that the Mensch and Hagal runes were symbolic of Our descent from the gods. This sounds like typical Ancient Alien rhetoric but, both Erich von Daniken and his protege Giorgio Tsoukolaus and the Jew Zecharia Sitchin still claimed that our ancestry was anything but pure, concealed the truth that Aryans are descended from the gods of the sky, and launched the idea not only in a multicultural interpretation of what it means to be descended from the gods, but that the gods are actively involved in our lives today. Some have speculated that there is an internal conflict secretly being waged among the governments and institutions of the world, one controlled by allies to the white race and others completely controlled and fighting for the interests of the Jews. Some have even drawn a connection between the Jews and the Grays. Indeed, some have suggested that the Germans discovered a downed UFO in the Black Forest and began reverse engineering its technology, which is a task often attributed to Himmler’s Ancestral Heritage Society.

In previous articles, I have spoken at length about what I call the Aryan sun gods, or sky people. In fact on an episode of The Solar Storm, I discussed this matter briefly with Kyle Hunt. While our achievements as White Aryans surely cannot not be diminished by the erroneous claim that they were either stewarded or given outright by ancient “aliens”, the questions remains if we did not evolve from apelike creatures from Africa or the Biblical Adam and Eve, then where?

In the Eddas, it is clearly pointed out that mankind descended from the gods, and that the gods descended from a lost race of giants. To the uneducated reader, the Eddas seem to describe a Biblical-style chronology with a creation story, a mid-point, then an eschatology which describes the end of times. It wasn’t until the 19th century that writers like the founder of Atlantology, Ignatius Donnelly, came to believe that the creation story and the Norse end of the world known as Ragnarok, or “Twilight of the Gods”, was in fact the story of the birth and destruction of a previous world. This might be referred to in some religious circles as Pre-Adamic times. But again back to my interview, we also discussed the real-life mission of the Ahnenerbe, or Ancestral Heritage Society, the academic branch of the SS that sought out to recover the forgotten history of our prehistoric Aryan ancestors. Critics claim this was nothing more than an attempt to justify conquest or give a legitimate basis for racism or Germanic supremacy. On the contrary, the researchers that Himmler put into the field to investigate our blood and heritage were seasoned explorers and academics with one thing in mind: discover the truth, i.e., the Aryan truth and not the artificial, Marxist conceived Jewish one.
Since the late 19th century, occult movements in Germany and elsewhere grafted upon the Greek notion of Hyperborea. Tales told of the Greek god Apollo traveling to a distant northern land beyond the north winds. Later, Ariosophists such as Guido von List and Jorg Lanz von Liebenfeld inhabited this with Aryans. This really was not a rash inclination on their part; there already was both literary and historical evidence to support such claims. It was mostly in the form of Aryan mythology, including the Vedas, the Sanskrit writings of India, and numerous other European stories, even accounts by Adam of Bremen. It was he that also traveled to the ancient Teutonic temple of Uppsala, in which he reported stood stone statues of Thor, Wodan, Frey, and even the Aryan Christ-figure Baldur, Freya and Loki, who Adam of Bremen said was represented by Ugaarrthilocus (Utgard-Loki), another serpentine interpretation of the Norse god of evil and chaos.

Himmler was very interested in the history and heritage of Iceland. Many NS thinkers at the time believed Iceland was either the site or a remnant of Thule Ultima, the northern Atlantis described by the classical geographer Pytheas in the fourth century B.C. This idea was furthered by the founder of the Edda Society, Rudolf von Sebottendorf. Because of this conviction, Iceland clearly was the most vital link to finding the true home and birthplace of the Proto-Aryan race.

Himmler grew up listening to his parents reading ancient Norse and German myths and legends, including the famous Nibelungenlied, in which Prince Siegfried slayed the dragon then bathed in its blood, which made him invincible in battle. Himmler was convinced that all these fantastic myths and stories contained clues to the ancient Aryan past, and perhaps actually were a guidebook to the true history of Our Folk.
In his book Digging for Hitler Dr. David Barrowclough explained:

Himmler came to take a literal view of the Eddas and other ancient legends. . . Himmler created a department in the Ahnenerbe called “The Teaching and Research Centre for Folktales, Fairytales and Sagas.” This department was given the task of accumulating as much knowledge as possible on ancient Germanic tales. Regarding this mission Himmler wrote: “Fairytales, sagas and cosmic fables are all varieties of stories that flow from the soul of the German people . . . These folktales are to be understood as they are told, without false glorification, in essence to remain true to their words and sounds.”

Barrowclough continues:

Himmler believed they comprise a history—greatly fragmented, but still intelligible—of northern Europe as it once was, before the arrival of Christianity. More importantly, he believed that the Aesir—the old gods of Norse legend, such as Odin, Thor and Loki—were in fact beings of pure, undiluted Nordic essence, the earliest Aryans.”

Indeed, the Sanskrit writings of India, as the author Michael Cremo has shown, say the Aryan, or first Aryan man, Manu, descended from pure energy, and that modern Europoid humanity has a greater antiquity, putting homo sapiens on the Earth millions, not thousands, of years into the past – in fact, hundreds of millions of years, a notion mainstream academics find impossible to accept.

Himmler also believed that Thor’s Hammer was a real weapon,of enormous power. What if it were true? What if Thor’s Hammer was of Ancient Aryan origin, part of a lost technological weapon of the now destroyed and forgotten Aryan civilization of the Ice age? Himmler was both intrigued and fascinated by stories of the Hammer. Himmler so noted his interest in the relic in a memo to his researchers:

Have the following researched: Find all myths within the northern Aryan Germanic cultural world where an understanding of the lightning bolt, the thunderbolt, Thor’s hammer, or the flying or thrown hammer exists, in addition to all the sculptures of the god depicted with a small hand axe emitting lightning. Please collect all of the pictorial, sculptural, written and mythological evidence of this. I am convinced that this is not based on natural thunder and lightning, but rather that it is an early, highly developed form of war weapon of our forefathers, which was only, of course, possessed by the Aesir, the gods, and that it implies an unheard knowledge of electricity.” (Barrowclough 80)

In the beginning, according to Nordic beliefs, there was nothing but a great abyss, and a northern and southern realm, one of eternal ice, cold and darkness known as Nifelheim and one of heat, fire and molten lava known Muspellheim. There were three small rivers leading out of these realms known as the Elvigar. After a period of eons, the fiery sparks from Muspellheim began to melt the great blocks of hoar frost and rime that existed beyond. Out of an immense block of ice came forth a gigantic cow. This cow then began licking the surrounding blocks of ice for nourishment and out of a great, melted iceberg rose the frost giant Ymir. He knelt beside the cow and drank from her teats, then out of his arm pits were born the first gods, Bor, Villi and Ve. Like a similar Celtic story in which infant twins dismember their giant parents in order to create the world, these gods ambush and murder Ymir, tearing off his head and chopping up his body. His blood became a deluge and drowned all the other giants which had hence emerged from the ice, with but a few giant survivors who escaped in a boat. This deluge of blood soon became the oceans, rivers and lakes of the known world. The gods then shaped the planet, known as Midgard, or Middle-Earth, out of his body. From his skull they created the heavens. To link the nine worlds together, they conjured forth Yggdrasil, the World Tree. Ymir’s flesh became the soil. Out of his bones, rocks and mountains.. His hair became trees and vegetation, his brains formed the stormy Nordic skies, and the maggots which lived in his stomach became the dwarves.

This was the beginning of all things. The mention and emphasis of fire and ice, and their interaction, is actually linked to Hans Hoerbiger’s World Ice Theory. This theory was presented to pre war National Socialist Germany, and was enthusiastically embraced by both Hitler and the newly rejuvenated academic community. In his book Twilight of the Gods, Erich von Daniken quotes the two great French thinkers Luis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier on Hoerbiger’s teachings:

Hoerbiger claims that he can reveal the truths about our planet’s earliest history as well as its distant future. He throws all current theories on the history of cultures, the appearance and development of mankind and his societies simply out the window. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of years ago, he maintains, there already existed god-like peoples, giants and highly developed cultures . . . the entire universe is undergoing a kind of uniform phase of development; it is a living organism in which every part exerts an influence on every other part. The quest of mankind is linked to the quest of the stars; everything that happens in the cosmos is reflected in events on the Earth, and vice versa.”

Hoerbiger believed that prior to the existence and orbit of our current moon, there was a tertiary moon that crashed to the earth. During the reign of this early moon, giants walked the earth and other fantastic creatures, and this was the Pre-Adamic times I spoke of earlier. This destructive period, was linked to the story of Ymir, with the exalted first giant himself symbolically representing the fall of the tertiary moon.

In the end of Ragnarok, when the gods fall to their deaths and the world is consumed in a maelstrom of steel and fire, two people, a man and a woman who sought refuge under the world tree, Yggdrasil, survived. And this, according to some, represents the first man and woman, of Aryan humanity, our Adam and Eve. This idea was actually suggested by Christian scholars in Scandinavia who tried to reconcile the Eddas with Biblical history, but it nevertheless would explain the disappearance of that fantastic pre-Adamic world and the rise of our present White Aryan mankind.

Himmler continued to investigate Scandinavia even through the onset of the war. Himmler deserves credit for his ambition and motivation, and for giving our people the hope of finding our true past.

I will continue to update my readers on the works of the Ahnenerbe and the wonderful work they did and the revealing truths and facts they have discovered.
