The Third Reich was a deeply mysterious civilization. Not surprisingly, occult-related activities were the most mysterious component of this civilization. And none of these activities was more mysterious than the ones that took place in the Wewelsburg Castle.
This castle (to which in this section I will refer simply as a Wewelsburg) a XVII century fortress located on the hill over the village of Wewelsburg about 30 km from the city of Paderborn in the northeast of North Rhine-Westphalia. It was, indeed, an “enigma wrapped in mystery inside the riddle”.
Although the SS left a significant paper trail related to its plans for the castle and the activities that took place there, no one knows for sure what their objectives really were and what exactly they did there.
Which is, actually, not surprising at all. There is little doubt among historians that the SS activities in Wewelsburg were occult-related (although the exact nature and objectives of these activities are still unknown).
Consequently, these activities were inevitably based on a certain system of occult beliefs – i.e., on a certain occult quasi-religion. Which, judging by the known activities in Wewelsburg went far deeper and was far broader in scope than the general ersatz religion of national-socialism.
Every occult quasi-religion has two components – the public component open to everyone inside and outside the corresponding occult group and the secret component (“restricted” or “forbidden” knowledge) accessible only to its members.
In most occult societies there are several levels (layers) of secret knowledge. To get access to the higher level of knowledge the member has to go through the corresponding initiation process (in many cases long and complex). In many cases, the public knowledge was actually a cover for actual objectives and activities of the occult group in question.
Consequently, it will be safe to assume that Wewelsburg was no exception. Which means that just about all publicly known Wewelsburg-related objectives, plans and activities were but a cover for actual plans, objectives and activities of the SS (of Heinrich Himmler, actually), the true purpose of which was known to only two or three individuals.
And a well-known SS (and Himmler’s) obsession with secrecy – and a penchant for deception – only strengthens this assumption
