Himmler and the Search for Icelandic Origins

By: of The Renegade Tribune

In previous articles, I have spoken at length about what I call the Aryan sun gods, or sky people. In fact on a recent episode of The Solar Storm, I discussed this matter briefly with Kyle Hunt. While our achievements as White Aryans surely cannot not be diminished by the erroneous claim that they were either stewarded or given outright by ancient “aliens”, the questions remains if we did not evolve from apelike creatures from Africa or the Biblical Adam and Eve, then where?

In the Eddas, it is clearly pointed out that mankind descended from the gods, and that the gods descended from a lost race of giants. To the uneducated reader, the Eddas seem to describe a Biblical-style chronology with a creation story, a mid-point, then an eschatology which describes the end of times. It wasn’t until the 19th century that writers like the founder of Atlantology Ignatius Donnelly, came to believe that the creation story and the Norse end of the world known as Ragnarok, or “Twilight of the Gods”, was in fact the story of the birth and destruction of a previous world. This might be referred to in some religious circles as Pre-Adamic times. But again back to my interview, we also discussed the real-life mission of the Ahnenerbe, or Ancestral Heritage Society, the academic branch of the SS that sought out to recover the forgotten history of our prehistoric Aryan ancestors. Critics claim this was nothing more than an attempt to justify conquest or give a legitimate basis for racism or Germanic supremacy. On the contrary, the researchers that Himmler put into the field to investigate our blood and heritage were seasoned explorers and academics with one thing in mind: discover the truth, i.e., the Aryan truth and not the artificial, Marxist conceived Jewish one.

Since the late 19th century, occult movements in Germany and elsewhere grafted upon the Greek notion of Hyperborea. Tales told of the Greek god Apollo traveling to a distant northern land beyond the north winds. Later, Ariosophists such as Guido von List and Jorg Lanz von Liebenfeld inhabited this with Aryans. This really was not a rash inclination on their part; there already was both literary and historical evidence to support such claims. Mostly in the form of Aryan mythology, including the Vedas, the Sanskrit writings of India, and numerous other European stories, even accounts by Adam of Bremen. It was he that also traveled to the ancient Teutonic temple of Uppsala, in which he reported stood stone statues of Thor, Wodan, Frey, and even the Aryan Christ-figure Baldur, Freya and Loki, who Adam of Bremen said was represented by Ugaarrthilocus (Utgard-Loki), another serpentine interpretation of the Norse god of evil and chaos.

Himmler was very interested in the history and heritage of Iceland. Many NS thinkers at the time believed Iceland was either the site or a remnant of Thule Ultima, the northern Atlantis described by the classical geographer Pytheas in the fourth century B.C. This idea was furthered by the founder of the Edda Society, Rudolf von Sebottendorf. Because of this conviction, Iceland clearly was the most vital link to finding the true home and birthplace of the Proto-Aryan race.

Himmler grew up listening to his parents read them ancient Norse and German myths and legends, including the famous Nibelungenlied. In which Prince Siegfried slayed the dragon then bathed in its blood, which made him invincible in battle. Himmler was convinced that all these fantastic myths and stories contained clues to the ancient Aryan past, and perhaps actually were a guidebook to the true history of Our Folk.
In his book Digging for Hitler Dr. David Barrowclough explained:

Himmler came to take a literal view of the Eddas and other ancient legends. . . Himmler created a department in the Ahnenerbe called “The Teaching and Research Centre for Folktales, Fairytales and Sagas.” This department was given the task of accumulating as much knowledge as possible on ancient Germanic tales. Regarding this mission Himmler wrote: “Fairytales, sagas and cosmic fables are all varieties of stories that flow from the soul of the German people . . . These folktales are to be understood as they are told, without false glorification, in essence to remain true to their words and sounds.”

Barrowclough continues:

Himmler believed they comprise a history—greatly fragmented, but still intelligible—of northern Europe as it once was, before the arrival of Christianity. More importantly, he believed that the Aesir—the old gods of Norse legend, such as Odin, Thor and Loki—were in fact beings of pure, undiluted Nordic essence, the earliest Aryans.”

Indeed, the Sanskrit writings of India, as the author Michael Cremo has shown, say the Aryan, or first Aryan man, Manu, descended from pure energy, and that modern Eurpoid humanity has a greater antiquity, putting homo sapiens on the Earth millions not thousands of years into the past, in fact, hundreds of millions of year, a fact mainstream academics find impossible to accept.

Himmler also believed that Thor’s Hammer was a real weapon, of enormous power. What if it were true? What if Thor’s Hammer was of Ancient Aryan origin, part of a lost technological weapon of the now destroyed and forgotten Aryan civilization of the Ice age? Himmler was both intrigued and fascinated by stories of the Hammer. Himmler so noted his interest in the relic in a memo to his researchers:

Have the following researched: Find all laces in the northern Aryan Germanic cultural world where an understanding of the lightning bolt, the thunderbolt, Thor’s hammer, or the flying or thrown hammer exists, in addition to all the sculptures of the god depicted with a small hand axe emitting lightning. Please collect all of the pictorial, sculptural, written and mythological evidence of this. I am convinced that this is not based on natural thunder and lightning, but rather that it is an early, highly developed form of war weapon of our forefathers, which was only, of course, possessed by the Aesir, the gods, and that it implies an unheard knowledge of electricity.” (Barrowclough 80)

In the beginning, according to Nordic beliefs, there was nothing but a great abyss, and a northern and southern realm, one of eternal ice, cold and darkness known as Nifelheim and one of heat, fire and molten lava known Muspellheim. There were three small rivers leading out of these realms known as the Elvigar. After a period of eons, the fiery sparks from Muspellheim began to melt the great blocks of hoar frost and rime that existed beyond, and immense block of ice came forth a gigantic cow. This cow then began licking the surrounding blocks of ice for nourishment and out of a great, melted iceberg rose the frost giant Ymir. He knelt beside the cow and drank from her teats, then out of his arm pits were born the first gods, Bor, Villi and Ve. Like a similar Celtic story in which infant twins dismember their giant parents in order to create the world, these gods ambush and murder Ymir, tearing off his head and chopping up his body. His blood became a deluge and drowned all the other giants which had hence emerged from the ice, with but a few giant survivors who escaped in a boat. The gods created the world then. Out of his skull they created the heavens with Yggdrasil, the World Tree, with his flesh the earth of the nine worlds were formed. Out of his bones, rocks and mountains. His blood became the oceans, rivers and lakes. His hair became trees and vegetation, his brains formed the stormy Nordic skies, and the maggots which lived in his stomach became the dwarves.

This was the beginning of all things. The mention and emphasis of fire and ice, and their interaction, is actually linked to Hans Hoerbiger’s World Ice Theory. This theory was present to pre war National Socialist Germany, and was enthusiastically embraced by both Hitler and the newly rejuvenated academic community. In his book Twilight of the Gods, Erich von Daniken quotes the two great French thinkers Luis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier on Hoerbiger’s teachings:

Hoerbiger claims that he ccan reveal the truths aabout our planet’s earliest history as well as its distant future. He throws all current theories on the history ofcultures, the appearance and development of mankind and his societies simply out the window. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of years ago, he maintains, there already existed god-like peoples, giants and highly developed cultures . . . the entire universe is undergoing aa kind off uniform phase of development; it I a living organism in which every part exerts an influence on every other part. The quest of mankind is linked to the quest of the stars; everything that happens in the cosmos is reflected in events on the Earth, and vice versa.”

Hoerbiger believed that prior to the existence and orbit of our current moon, there was a tertiary moon that crashed to the earth. During the reign of this early moon, giants walked the earth and other fantastic creatures and this was the Pre-Adamic times I spoke of earlier. This destructive period, was linked to the story off Ymir, he becoming the metaphorical giant representing the fall of the moon.

In the end of Ragnarok, when the gods fall to their deaths and the world is consumed in a maelstrom of steel and fire; two people, a man and a woman who sought refuge under the world tree, Yggdrasil, survived. And this according to some represent the first man and woman, of Aryan humanity, our Adam and Eve. This idea was actually suggested by Christian scholars in Scandinavia who tried to reconcile the Eddas with Biblical history, but it nevertheless would explain the disappearance of that fantastic pre-Adamic world and the rise of our present White Aryan mankind.

Himmler continued to investigate Scandinavia even through the onset of the war. Himmler deserves credit for his ambition and motivation, and for giving our people the hope of finding our true past.

I will continue to update my readers on the works of the Ahnenerbe and the wonderful work they did and the revealing truths and facts they have discovered.
