4. Thule Society
With the educational trend focusing on World War Two and Nazism rising to new heights within the recent decades, it is surprising that not many know about the Nazis’ own secret society- the Thule Society. Grounded in occult beliefs, it is the main perpetrator in the study of the legendary Aryan race, the key aspect of Hitler’s argument for ethnic cleansing. The group speculated that the Aryan Race was a long-gone ancient civilization of people with light hair and eyes based in Northern Europe with a capital called Hyperborea. Though technically a study group, the Thule Society was notorious for its Nazi sympathizer memberships; members like Rudolf Hess, Hans Frank and most likely Hitler himself. Unsurprising.
