Was Hitler Possessed By Demons?

“And there are seven kings: five have fallen, one is, the other is not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while” This Bible extract from Revelation 17:10 is known as the Seven Kings Prophesy For centuries, religious scholars have seen the text as a warning that the Antichrist will return to Earth to wreak havoc Journalist Wayne Croley believes the prophecy was fulfilled by Nazi leader Adolf Hitler

Croley argues that Hitler’s remorseless genocidal campaign could only have been committed by Lucifer himself Rumor says Hitler did have connections to a devil-worshipping cult In 1919, Hitler purportedly joined the Thule Society Historian Dusty Sklar writes that its members were active Satanists, and selected Hitler to lead them towards a “New World Order”, which demanded large scale extermination to purify the human race Indeed, according to historian June Hunt the leader Thule Society leader Dietrich Eckhart revealed on his deathbed that Hitler’s initiation into the “Secret Doctrine…[gave] him the means to communicate with the powers”

Many historians accept this tale Exeter University Professor Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke writes that Hitler channelled Satan in the lead up to becoming German Chancellor in 1933 It seems these allegations were widely believed in the upper ranks of the Catholic Church In 2006, former President of the International Association of Exorcists and Papal aide Father Gabriele Amorth revealed he believes Hitler was possessed by the devil Amorth’s comments reflect leaked Vatican documents

They reveal the then Pope – Pius XII – once performed a long-distance exorcism on Hitler, hoping to end the Nazi scourge There is significant evidence that Hitler was inspired by occult literature While investigating Hitler’s former library, author Timothy Ryback found one book by the controversial Dr Ernst Schertel Schertel’s extreme and outlandish obsessions with sadomasochism and black magic led to his imprisonment, and his work was banned in Germany

Yet, whilst behind bars, Schertel sent Hitler a copy of one of his outlawed publications Hitler highlighted certain passages of the book One of the many he picked reads, “He who does not have the demonic seed within himself will never give birth to a magical world” This bears extraordinary similarities to testimony given by Hitler’s childhood friend August Kubizek Kubizek says that as 17 year old friends, Hitler unveiled his plan to “restore Germany to its former glory”

Kubizek alleges that the delivery of this proclamation was so frightening, both of them felt that an otherworldly out-of-body experience had taken place in that moment Yet, much of this evidence depends on second hand testimony Indeed, while the Pope may have risen in the middle of the night to cast out Hitler’s demons as some claim, there is no proof that this had any effect Hitler ruled Germany for 12 years But, exorcisms are meant to cast out the devil instantly

Many theologians such as Holly Lawrence argue that the Pope’s failure to launch a counterstrike against the Nazis, amounted to latent support for the Third Reich Did the Pope conduct exorcisms to alleviate guilt over this? Moreover, Hitler aligned himself with Christianity In a 1922 speech in Munich, he referred to his “feeling as a Christian”, and how this convinced him that Jesus was an anti-Semite The links to Dr Schertel are unsettling, but they offer no proof of anything

We cannot know whether Hitler himself highlighted the offending sections, nor why these parts were marked out The same uncertainty hangs over Hitler’s supposed links to the Thule Society As many historians, like Johannes Hering, have pointed out over the years, “There is no evidence that Hitler ever attended the Thule Society” It is likely these rumors emerged after the Second World War He caused so much destruction during the six year conflict, fictional horrors may have seemed indistinct from the real atrocities that took place

Many of Hitler’s actions could be described as demonic in nature Yet, aside from the obvious uncertain question of the devil’s existence, all existing “proof” comes from unreliable second hand testimony Indeed, none of these claims have been verified Perhaps claiming Hitler was possessed by demons is simply a way to cope with the true horrors that a human being can cause

  1. Lucifer is not the correct name, it is Satan. Lucifer was the angel of light God created originally before it fell
