A collection of 13,000 occult and witchcraft books has been found recently in the National Library of the Czech Republic in Prague. It belonged to Heinrich Himmler, a SS Nazi chief. The collection was forgotten in the library since at least the 1950s.
In 1935, the SS created a special section called ”H” (H-Sonderkommando, so named for the first letter of the German word Hexe, meaning ”witch”). This section was looking for documents on witchcraft, the occult, and the supernatural.
Heinrich Himmler believed that the power of the old occult masters would help the Nazis to rule the world.
