Thanks DMV, I find this topic very interesting.

The darker side of the Nazi regime.

I really love the dark side of Nazi Propaganda...

Strobel basically brainwashed the German people with Pro Nazi articles and broadcasts.

Nothing 'Anti Nazi' was allowed, and this guy was one who decided what the German people would or wouldn't be told of...

Fascinating and dark topic, ancient Germanic History, with links to the occult...

The Headquarter of the Ahnenerbe toward the end of the war was in Waischenfeld/Upper Franconia/Bavaria, which is just about a 45 minutes drive from where I live. I never know about that until a few years ago where I took part in a guided tour that was visiting places around Bavaria where the Nazis had lot of this weird occult-shit going on. As a matter of fact I forgot all about that trip and just now it all comes back. Interesting document. Can you read who signed that document?

Hi

The trip that you mentioned sounds really interesting. Do you have any pictures.

Although readable, I can't make out the name of the signature on the documents...

unfortunately I didn't take pictures. The whole group was about 20 people. I went with three otheres I know well, and in case some of them took pictures they can't find them anymore. So no, I have no pictures to show.

 

The trip was very interesting. I remember one of the older people telling us that his father was a clerk working in the building acting as the headquarters of the organization. On our next motorscyle trip up in that area I could take some pictures.

I would be very interested in seeing any pictures that you take. I find this topic really interesting and dark...!!!

There was a very interesting lecture yesterday about Alfred Rosenberg and his team of scientists he send to the Monastery in Kloster Banz (Bavaria) to do some pseudo research for the Ahnenerbe. A shame you weren't there, he talked a lot about what they did, who was part of the organisation and where in the world they traveled to do weird studies for the Ahnenerbe. I showed him his document, but he was not able to tell me who signed. Sorry, I tried but can't help you with his name :-(

This sounds very interesting. I would be interested in hearing more about this lecture if you have the time.

Thank you for attempting to find out the signature, it is appreciated.

Sorry for the delay, I am renovating my house and lately it consumes a considerable amount of time...

 

I am member of a club that gives lectures about historical topics. On of our members is called Prof. Dr. Günther Dippold. He gave the lecture about Alfred Rosenberg and his staff in Kloster Banz I told you a few days ago. He is planning to organize an excursion to Kloster Banz in the coming months. We are then allowed to enter the cellars that were occupied by his staff of scientists and which are locked for public visits.

 

His lecture was about Rosenberg and his team of scientist in the Ahnenerbe. Most of the lecture was about Kloster Banz as an outpost of the SS-Lazarett Kurzenberg and how Kloster Banz was used as a depot of stolen books for the Ahnenerbe. I actually only went to see some documents with signatures of people in the Ahnenerbe. As far as I know Prof. Dippold has published some books about topics you might be interested in (possibly also about the Ahnenerbe).

 

Here are some names he mentioned in the context of "The Ahnenerbe". Maybe you have heard of some of them, maybe some are unknown to you. Most of them were in the "Persönlicher-Stab des RFSS Heinrich Himmler" and therefore highly interesting for me (Personal Staff of Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler). Hope it helps you. If you need more help let me know.

Hi Guy

Thank you for your reply.

This sounds really very interesting, and I would really like to hear more when you return to Kloster Banz. Will you be able to photo journal the visit, as that would be incredible.

I remember reading an article published in 2013 in a UK National tabloid that a long-lost diary belonging to Alfred Rosenberg had been found at a private company in the USA.

The 400 loose, handwritten pages were pictured as Federal authorities announced at a press conference that they had seized the wartime diary of Nazi official Alfred Rosenberg after it went missing 70 odd years ago.

The diary pages were found at a business in Lewiston, New York.

A criminal investigation has been launched to work out how Rosenberg's diary, a key portion of evidence during the Nuremberg trials, ended up in the U.S.

Senior Nazi Alfred Rosenberg played a significant role in the Nazi doctrine during WW2. He was convicted of war crimes at the Nuremberg trials after World War II and executed in 1946.

Officials say Rosenberg's diary was smuggled into the U.S. after the war, most likely by Robert M.W. Kempner, a government lawyer during the Nuremburg trials.

*Exerpts from Daily Mail article

These pages would be extremely interesting...!!!

A Few pictures that accompanied the Daily Mail article...

In the 1st shot Rosenberg (standing left) is pictured alongside Lammers and Hitler, and in the 2nd he is pictured (far right) at a Hitler speech alongside other top Nazi officials including Goring.

Pictures 3 & 4 are from US authorities, as evidence shots of the seized diary pages.

I have been trying to find an English translation of these pages for quite some time, but as yet have had no success...

If its allowed I will take pictures from our trip to the dungeons in Kloster Banz. I have not found an english transcript of the diary pages, but here you can find scans of all the pages along with a transcription in german in case you are interested in scans of the diary as such.

Hi Guy

I have found this before, and did translate the first dozen or so pages (with the help of online translation)...

It was taking me forever, so I trawled the internet for English written versions, with no luck....

This is such a dark example of Nazi history, and a topic that is very interesting. I'm sure that I will get around to it sometime.

This was a description of the diary pages from the USHMM (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum) relating to these pages, it reads...

'The diary, which begins in April 1936, contains entries in which Rosenberg reflects on contemporary events, including the Soviet-German non-aggression pact, the invasion of Poland, Germany’s relations with other countries prior to the war (Romania, Spain, Afghanistan, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Italy), the personalities and activities of other Nazi leaders, his antipathy to organized religion and to the Roman Catholic church in particular, accounts of his meetings with Hitler, the latter’s affirmations of Rosenberg’s writings and activities, and his perceptions of the popularity and reception of his writings among the general public, including “Der Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts.”

The latter part of the diary treats Rosenberg’s appointment by Hitler as Reichminister of the Occupied Eastern Territories, differences in policy between Rosenberg and others in how to administer these territories, political infighting, eventual military setbacks on the Eastern front, and his accounts of the effects of war and bombing raids on Germany. The diary ends in December 1944. Additional years of this diary (1934-1935) are held by the National Archives and Records Administration (U.S.), in College Park, Maryland. A digitized version is available as is a transcript.'

Thank you for taking the time to post Guy, it is appreciated.

Also, would it be ok for me to post the couple of document copies that you sent me, as I think people will find this interesting.

This is the biography of Alfred Rosenberg from the same source (USHMM), it reads...

Alfred Rosenberg was born in Reval (now Talinn), Estonia on 12 January 1893, into a family of German Baltic merchants and artisans. Rosenberg joined the party in 1920, and eventually became editor of the "Voelkischer Beobachter," and was the author of many works elaborating the philosophical views behind the Nazi movement, in particular its anti-Semitic and anti-religious views, with one of the best known publications being "Der Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts" (The Myth of the 20th Century). He became a Reichstag deputy of the Nazi Party after the election of Sept. 14, 1930, and was assigned to the Party Office on Foreign Affairs. In 1933 he became head of the Party's Office on Foreign Relations and was shortly thereafter appointed Deputy of Ideology and Education. On Jan. 24, 1934, Hitler promoted Rosenberg to the rank of Reichsleiter (National Leader) for the Office for Supervision of the Total Intellectual Schooling of the Party. On July 17, 1941, he was made Reich Minister for the Occupied Eastern Territories and in 1942 he became Commissioner for the Safeguarding of the National Socialist Philosophy for the Party and State, which included the indoctrination of the Armed Forces. He also was the founder of the National Socialist Cultural Community, forerunner of the Militant Association for German Culture (Kampfband für Deutsche Kultur) in 1927 and the Reich Organization for Early German History. Alfred Rosenberg was brought to the trial at Nuremberg, convicted on all counts, and hanged on Oct. 16, 1946

I was told yesterday that there will be another lecture about Kloster Banz and Rosenberg. Its called "Kloster Banz und der Einsatzstab Rosenberg 1944/45" - it is hard to translate, but it is something like "Abbey Banz and its Special-Mission-Staff Rosenberg 1944/45". Sadly I can't go this time, I won't be home.

 

It's a pity you do not live in Germany, I know many people that do research on topics you would probably be highly interested in. If you would understand german it would be easier for me to provide you with written information. If I can put my hands on something I think will be helpful for you I will forward it. Also, I will not forget your request for pictures about Kloster Banz or Waischenfeld.

Hello Guy,

I have often thought that it would be easier living in Germany...!!!

Unfortunately this is not possible for me.

I would be very interested in speaking further with you, as a current project that I am working on has taken a twist that wasn't expected, however, it's a twist that needs further investigation.

I have sent you a message, and look forward to speaking about this further.

I found this topic researching some original documents I own from Dr. Strobel about the writing and publishing of his book.  I would like to sell all the documents.
