    Lightbulb The Wewelsburg, Westphalia

    The Wewelsburg was built from 1603 to 1609 as secondary residence for the prince-bishops of Paderborn (also see Bishopric of Paderborn). Its location is near what was then believed to be the site of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest. Legend suggests that it held thousands of accused witches during the 17th century, who were tortured and executed within its walls.

    In 1802, the castle fell to the ownership of the Prussian state - and 13 years later fell victim to a fire that gutted the North Tower.

    In 1925, the castle had been renovated into a museum, banquet hall and hostel - six years later the North Tower again proved to be the weak point of the architecture, and had to be supported by guy wires. In 1934, at the suggestion of Karl Maria Wiligut, Heinrich Himmler signed a 100-mark 100-year lease with the Paderborn district, initially intending to renovate and re-design the castle as a school for Nazi leadership (the so-called SS "Führerkorps").

    Schoolings never occurred but SS-scientists practiced "germanic purpose research" (germanische Zweckforschung) here. Its purpose was the support of the SS-race-doctrine. Since autumn 1935 the project was called "SS-Schule Haus Wewelsburg" (SS-School House Wewelsburg). The fields of activity were:

    * pre- and early history
    * medieval history and folklife studies
    * build-up of the "Library of the Schutzstaffel in Wewelsburg"
    * strengthening of the national socialist world-view in the village of Wewelsburg


    In 1938, Siegfried Taubert was in charge of developing the castle, when Himmler inquired about the cost of installing a planetarium. The Ahnenerbe are also said to have had major input into the redevelopment.

    Prisoners from the Saxonia and Niederhagen camps were used as labourers to perform much of the construction work on Wewelsburg between 1939 and 1943, under the design of architect Hermann Bartels.

    The design of floor mosaic laid in the Marble Hall during that time became known as the "Black Sun" (Schwarze Sonne) and is used as a symbol in Odinism and Neo-Nazism and in occult currents of Irminenschaft or Armanenschaft-inspired esotericism. It is not known whether or not this symbol was placed in the floor at Wewelsburg before or after the National Socialist Regime and the taking over of the castle by Himmler. Because the ceilings of the North-Tower were casted in concrete and faced with natural stone during the Third Reich it is more likely that the ornament was created during the Himmler era.

    Any recipient of one of Himmler's Totenkopfrings (Death's Head Rings / SS Honor Rings) was to arrange to have the ring returned to the Castle upon his death.

    Himmler's plans included making it the center of a new Germanocentric world following the "final victory". To symbolize that, an installation of a circular wall (including further buildings) centered on the North Tower of the castle, 1.2 km in diameter, was planned. See the architectural drawing and model from 1944. The plans also included a "hall of the High Court of the SS" (Saal des Hohen Gerichtes der SS). From 1941 on the architects called the complex the "Center of the World". It was to be finished within twenty years.

    One day this will again be a Power Center. One day the Rituals will once again take place, and the Best of the Best will roam all about the complex which was once planned, and will in the future be built.

    Too bad Himmler could never finish his project and build all the different facilities around the centre castle, which were to serve as an important institute for research and education.

    Stunning pictures, yet even more sad that such majestic architecture had to be used to suit the dark purposes of an even darker regime.

    Thank you for posting this pictures, Boche.

    [Video] Wewelsburg Castle & the SS

    SS Himmlers castle 'Wewelsburg' part 1: Here
    SS Himmlers castle 'Wewelsburg' part 2: Here

    What's your guys' take on this..? Alot of the rituals and things that have taken place there mentioned in these videos seem to be based mostly on speculation and maybe even blatantly ignoring what really happened in there perhaps to prevent any resurgence.. I am really quite fascinated with this. Can anyone contribute some information about Wiligut's works and the like?

    Apparently this show is banned in Germany.. Not suprising.

    Thnx for the links, now i realy wonder what they could have found there i think Himmler had probably alot of historical items inside there books,scripts etc..
    But guess there are alot of secret's still about the 3th reich and they will stay secret's, after all it wasnt realy Hitler that was the most interesting person from Nazi Germany more the people that served for him and the ones on the background that basicly teached him everything.

    Could well be, Drim. I think that we will never know the truth extend of the ideology and the believes of the inner circle around Hitler. Perhaps it is even more shameful that one is being kept in the dark about those- because how can you arm yourselves against madness when you have no information about it.

    I also think that we can a from the nazi's while maintaining our democratic traditions and our human values. I have a silent admiration for the beautiful Ordensburgen and Thingstätte that were build during the nazi era- and even some of the buildings lookk rather well. Perhaps they should be used again- not for the purposes of the Nazi's but for teaching people about their history, their ancestry and the environment. The Thingstätte could serve well as meeting places for the local communities: for local celebrations and out-door political assemblies (during summer)

    Well at the end of the second video it says that the Himmler's personal safe containing documents were looted by allied forces after Himmler ordered the destruction of the castle.. I wonder what happened to the documents .. Burned? Hidden in the ground or the earth somewhere? Perhaps the search for the 'Holy Grail' begins with the contents of that safe.. Or maybe the safe is a fabrication..
