Adolf Hitler and the Thule Society
Lecture no. 6 from the course: The Real History of Secret Societies
Taught by Professor Richard B. Spence | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
Start with the history of the smaller secret societies that were popping up all over Germany at the end of the 19th century. Then look at how the larger societies and individuals, which have already been covered in this course, will weave through the background of Hitler’s rise to power. Then explore the role that secret societies played, or might have played, in Hitler’s rise; how they influenced his beliefs; and how the Nazi leader came to embrace secret-society methods for his own purposes.
