Dance the Adolf Hitler
Peter-Robert KoenigArnoldo Krumm-Heller's Hitlerianismoand Aleister Crowley's dreams
This short article is an outline of my "Der O.T.O. Phänomen REMIX" (2001) puffed up with details from my books "Ein Leben für die Rose" (1995) and "Abramelin & Co" (1995).
A lot of documents on Arnoldo Krumm-Heller and his Fraternitas Rosicruciana Antiqua can be found either in my books or online at this website. Therefore the interested reader is referred to these so I don't have to introduce each character or organisation again.
In 1906 Krumm published "Mi Sistema". Together with Gérald Encausse / "Papus", in winter 1906, Mr. Krumm ("Heller", his maternal surname, is only used in Spanish speaking countries) participated in Paris in odor experiments which ascertained 'sympathy' and 'antipathy' of 10 people by analysing their smells. (*1)
Earlier, in the huts of Inca Indians Krumm-Heller distinguished the different tribes according to their body odor. On account of their smells he concluded the racial inferiority of non-whites. (*2)
From the introductory lesson of Krumm's famous course on Runic Magic:
p. 2 - Los Hebreos, imitadores por excelencia, dieron a conocer la ciencia de descifrar el destino de sus Letras y si aún es hermoso y aún divertido el descifrar en la Kábala los nombres hebreos, éllos han silenciado que robaron ese sistema de los Nórticos [...] y
p. 3 - ANGELES DE LUZ, seres plenos de sustancia crística, con los que estamos conectados como raza blanca, como raza superior de la humanidad. La LOGIA BLANCA no puede admitir en su seño a los negros ni a los amarillos, pues la Ley de conexion exije que sus componentes sean de raza blanca.
Von Bernstorff was German ambassador in Washington in the years leading up to 1914, and was celebrated as the leading representation of the Reich in America from 1914 to 1917. The propaganda department for pro-German/anti-Allied propaganda was controlled financially through von Dernberg. The chief propaganda organ was entrusted by Germany to the half-Jew, George Sylvester Viereck, who employed Aleister Crowley, Hans-Heinz Ewers, and Frank Harries: all connected with sex-magic and occultism, on the staff of "Fatherland", which Viereck directed until the entry of America into the war. The occultist Ewers left for Mexico in order to attend in political discussions with the representatives of Venusuesto Carranza, who had succeeded Puerta as the leading Statesman of Mexico. Hence the possibility exists that Ewers will have been acquainted with Krumm-Heller. Particulars of Ewers journey to Mexico are contained in the biographical study of Ewers which you [P.R. König] recommended to us. (*5)
Carranza was anti-clerical and interested in scientific rationalism. He enacted laws forbidding the Catholic clergy to hold any religious instruction in elementary schools, but there is no written source known to me that he has been interested in esoterical matters, although it is likely that he will have been a freemason. We do not even have proof of this. Carranza was surrounded by a praetorian guard of German officers, of which at least five hundred were involved in training his army. The state armaments industry of Mexico was in the hands of the German industrialist Kloss. Of foreign ambassadors in Mexico City, Carranza favoured more highly the German ambassador, Heinrich von Eckehart. In 1915, answering a request by von Eckehart, Carranza suppressed the daily El Universal, which was conducting loud mouthed allied propaganda. Von Eckehart gained from Carranza permission for the Reich to establish a submarine base on the Mexican coast. Plans for an air programme were in preparation but may not have been realised.
It seems entirely likely that Sir Basil Thomson is right in saying that Krumm-Heller was appointed Mexican military attaché in Berlin. It seems likely that inital contact between Carranza and Krumm-Heller would have related to the medical knowledge and expertise of Krumm-Heller. Carranza devoted much energy to improvements in the hospital and medical services in his country which had long been decimated by endemic conflict and US interventions [particularly against Puerta]. One major factor in Mexican politics at the turn of the century was the rivalry between York masonry and the Scottish Rite [Charleston] for control of masonry in Mexico. The conflict was connected with the special role to be played by Knights Templarism in Mexico.
The development of German policy in Mexico ended in disaster with the Zimmermann telegramme preceding American intervention against Germany. German Under Secretary of State, Zimmermann, cabled the famous appeal for Mexican war against the United States promising Arizona and New Mexico as a reward for the Mexican alliance. Previously von Eckehart had urged Mexico to count on German support if she wished to conquer Guatemala, a traditional enemy. In general, German policy had been chiefly interested in maintaining a maximum degree of tension between the United States and Mexico, so that public opinion in the USA could be kept away from intervention in the European war. The fiasco of the Zimmermann telegramme was due to the ingenuity of the code breaking system of British Naval Intelligence boss, Admiral Hall, who had broken the code of the German cables.
Despite this setback, German Mexican friendship continued to flourish. In 1919 and 1920, when really heavy military supplies were conveyed to Mexico via Holland, and a great deal of secret history would be illumined by a further disclosure of these happenings of which little has yet been published. It is certain that such notorious personalities as Paul Rohrbach leading geo-politician and propagandist in Berlin for Germany during the First World War, as well as von Sebottendorff, were known to have visited Mexico in the post-war years. Possibly related to this, is the presence in Mexico City of Joseph Rettinger, mystery man of Polish politics during the war; an Austrian citizen, who is said to have been playing a major role in the establishment of post Carranza communist rule in Mexico. Carranza had then died in exile in Columbia. According to Gregor Schwartz-Bostunitsch [Nazi author of "Rudolph Steiner - ein Schwindler wie keiner"] Steiner had connections with Central American diplomatic circles, and further meagre details on this can be provided. Paul von Rohrbach, a major figure in German intelligence, who continued to play a role on the scene after 1933, was almost certainly a friend of Rudolph Steiners. Certainly Jaeck's son [?] received special favours from Rudolph Steiner. In general, one must assume that these quasi-illuminated figures were connected with the work of German military intelligence in the First World War, which during the Weimar Republic was continued by the German section of the Druid Order, maintaining liaison with all anti-British and anti-French revolutionary movements from Iran to Mexico, working in 45 countries according to Nesta Webster; but as this forment of discontented masons was in its turn supported by international communism, the question as to where their real loyalties resided would have to be answered differently in each individual case. Rohrbach lived on after 1945, and wrote a furiously anti-Hitler book in retrospect. He is said to have been a major figure in German Templarism.
Basil Thomson was known to have been on good terms with Nesta Webster, the anti-esoterical historian, and had access to all the chiefs of allied intelligence during the First World War. Of course, the book «Queer People», from which the data on Krumm-Heller is quoted is intended for the general public. It is possible that he is relating the truth when saying that Krumm-Heller claimed to be ready to betray his mission, but as it seems this was only a bluff and he did not betray anything, it is altogether likely that he was sincerely devoted to the German Mexican alliance, and was only afraid of the consequences of appearing to have failed Carranza by being apprehended. It is difficult to understand why the British had received a signal from the boat on which Krumm-Heller arrived at the Orkneys." (*6)
1937 he informed the school authorities about his plans to leave in spring 1938 for extended travels in America and to take his son Parsival with him.
He didn't intend to take his son Moc (Cuauthemoc) along. In order "to guarantee" his education he had already registered him with the Napola; Krumm-Heller signed: "Heil Hitler". (*7) The Napola (Nationalpolitische Erziehungsanstalt = National-Political College) was an elitist reformatory in the spirit of Hitler who formulated his educational purposes as follows: "In my order castles a youth will grow up which the world will be frightened of. I want a violent, domineering, intrepid, cruel youth." [Hermann Rauschning: “Gespräche mit Hitler“, Zürich 1940, 237]
It looks as if Krumm-Heller meant to split up his concerns evenly between his sons, two versions of himself: Parsival, performing rather badly at school (*8) was educated for the spiritual life and for traveling, while Cuauthemoc was sent to the school which raised "Hitler's heirs".
The Napola was meant as the nursery school for the SS. Under the motto "Who obeys, can order" entire days were spent with marching and sports. The willingness to make sacrifices was trained with corporal punishment.
"Comradeship until death" was instilled and followed up with the motto "men make history, we make the men".
Nevertheless, dancing lessons, foreign languages and even lessons in gentlemanly behaviour were also on the curriculum. The children were intoxicated with the ideology of racial selection and the idea that the Jewish culture was the main enemy of the Aryans. (*9)
At that time Krumm-Heller supported the Swiss "National Front", a fascist movement (1930-40) which steeled itself against "Bolshevism" and campaigned for the armament of the Swiss army. (*10) "As Dr. A. Krumm-Heller reported, the ideas of the Nationalistic Action [Nationalistische Aktion] in Mexico found eager approval", wrote in 1939 the "Academy of the Rights of the Nations" [Akademie für die Rechte der Völker]. (*11)
In the issue of his magazine "Rosa Cruz", dated April 27 1933, he enthused about Hitler's being a stormy fighter of the working class whose ideas should be adopted by all countries.
It was unfortunate, Krumm-Heller opined, that the press compared Hitler with Mussolini, as there was a big difference: Mussolini stripped the Italian King of his power whereas the Germans were rendered powerless by the socialists.
Krumm-Heller saw two scapegoats: the Jews and the ideals of the French Revolution. In Krumm-Heller's eyes, The Hitlerianismo should create a new philosophy, that is a new German identity. He believed that the persecution of the Jews was a pure lie and he considered the pain of the Jews as a means for the good of the whole planet [context see scans below]. (*12)
He foisted his politicial opinions on his followers in South America: the fascist leader in Italy, Mussolini, the president of Turkey, Kemal Atatürk, and Hitler had "dado un nuevo y heroico impulso al mundo". (*13 He even still went on: "Yo soy espiritualista amigo de la paz y por esi simpatico con Hitler, que frente a la militarizacion brutal de Rusia, es el único apóstol de la paz, el único que ha dado libertad y trabajo a un pueblo grande." (*14)
Krumm-Heller was forced to spend WWII in Berlin where by chance he happened to be at the outbreak of war. Alongside the Mexican flag, the Nazi's Swastika fluttered on his house's gable. (*15)
In these days, the 'Caliphate' is promoting Krumm-Heller's work by publishing his book "Logos Mantram Magia" which is void of any anti-semitic attacks or pro-Hitler ramblings. See their Arnoldo Krumm-Heller: Logos Mantram Magia" [scan below] with an introduction by Parcival Krumm-Heller and a whitewashed history account of Arnoldo Krumm-Heller's biography.
"Logos Mantram Magia", edition 2005Although this edition is void of any anti-semitic attacks or pro-Hitler ramblings, the son of Krumm-Heller provides some connection of his father to the extremely racist Ordo Novi Templi (ONT). "In 1925, my father worked with Prof. Ernst Issberner-Haldane on the theories of Plasmogenia and its relation to the origins of life." Parcival Krumm-Heller, one of Krumm-Heller's children (he also had Hiram Aguirre, Guadalupe, Cuauthemoc and Sieglinde) adds that Issberner-Haldane (1886-1966) was an Ariosophist and that his 1935 book "Arisches Weistum" was banned by the Nazis.
To no surprise: the Nazis considered all occult stuff to be "dangerous" to "real" Ariosophy. Nevertheless, racists like Liebenfels, Issberner-Haldane and Krumm-Heller survived Germany and Krumm-Heller even managed to travel to Brazil in the desastrous after-War situation in Germany.
The Ordo Novi Templi was founded by Lanz von Liebenfels, "Der Mann, der Hitler die Ideen gab" (The Man Who Provided Hitler With Ideas) and the interested reader is referred to below sources:
The Swiss Head of the O.T.O., Hermann Joseph Metzger, also was interested in Liebenfels
Of course, Metzger also knew of Issberner-Haldane as both contributed to the Swiss occult magazin "Die Arve" where Metzger had published his first article. Issberner-Haldane, born 1886 died in 1966.
In the early part of December 1950, Metzger described Liebenfels as "the last Grand Master of the Temple" and in his obituary - Liebenfels died on April 22nd 1954 - of June that year, Metzger spoke of his "unswerving faith and exalted virtue [...] all who knew him confirm their high opinion of him." Rudolf J. Mund, one of Liebenfels' adherents, visited Stein, the place of the Swiss O.T.O.
Metzger's house-mate Anna Werder-Binder had only good things to say of Liebenfels: "He proposed a Law of Life [...] and for the preservation of the race. He was writing as a well-known race-hygienist in 1918."
Of course, Metzger considered himself to be the successor to Krumm-Heller's Fraternitas Rosicruciana Antiqua.
