Nazi Secrets, by Frank LostNazi secrets are weird enough. It is therefore unnecessary to add wishful fantasies to the genuine historical facts in the field of Nazi occultism, especially when it comes to their expeditions, and their scientific researches.  The true amateur of sensational and strange stories can still be fully satisfied with Himmler's Witch Project, or the Hollow Earth Theory.  In many aspects, the Nazi era was like a breach in space and time. What happened during these almost 12 years of dictatorship, at the heart of Europe, in one of the most civilized and industrially advanced country, does not match the moral, philosophical and religious values that existed everywhere else at the same time in the world. There is therefore ...
