Himmler’s Crusade

August 12, 2009

Himmlers crusadeThe German expedition to Thule was not their first  attempt to uncover the secrets of the planet and its creatures.  In 1938 Himmler sent an expedition to Tibet, ostensibly to find the origins of the Aryan race.  This is documented in Himmler’s Crusade: The Nazi Expedition to Find the Origins of the Aryan Race  : 

 “Why would the leader of the Nazi’s dreaded SS, the second-most-powerful man in the Third Reich, send a zoologist, an anthropologist, and several other scientists to Tibet on the eve of war? Himmler’s Crusade tells the bizarre and chilling story one of history’s most perverse, eccentric, and frightening scientific expeditions. ….. “

What the author of this book doesn’t disclose is that the expedition was actually investigating the fabled Yeti – Himmler was obsessed with the idea that ancient, powerful creatures were part of the Nazi ideal, and would eventually be vindicated with the Thule expedition.

The expedition failed to find a Yeti, but some of the German soldiers  posed for this prank photo:

  1. The book looks really interesting, I’ll have to pick it up sometime. Thanks for the review as well.

  2. Right though they really tried occult researches in the strange field of witches as well. it was called Project SS Hexen (http://nazi-secret.com/en/occult/57-ss-hexen-files)
