Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the Nazi Party (formally Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, National Socialist German Workers Party). He was chancellor (1933) and führer (leader, 1934) of Germany until his suicide on the 30th of April, 1945.
It is known that he had a "teacher" who knew about the Sufis and perhaps hypnotism. This teacher taught him psychological tricks to enforce his will upon his audience. His teacher was in possession of a Turkish passport, so perhaps he was from Turkey.
It is reported that Aleister Crowley met Adolf Hitler in person, but the purpose of the meeting is unknown. George Ivanovich Gurdjieff fought in France against Hitler, but some people believe that Gurdjieff and Hitler also met in person, again with the purpose of the meeting being unknown.
There is some evidence that Hitler read the Austrian occult magazine Ostara published by Jörg Lanz von Liebenfels in the early 1900's but Hitler later banned the magazine when he came to power and never mentioned being influenced by it. There is also no evidence of Hitler ever attending the Thule Society, although other leading Nazi figures are supposed to have been present at meetings. In Hitler's book Mein Kampf he criticizes occultists and racist cultists as bad fighters for Germany's salvation and scorn their old fashioned ways and ceremonials. A perhaps better example of a leading Nazi occultist is Heinrich Himmler.
World War II aftermath
Chilean diplomat Miguel Serrano (1917-2009) wrote that Hitler survived WWII and was in contact with Hyperborean gods in Shambala, an underground centre in Antarctica. Serrano claimed he will emerge one day with a fleet of UFOs and defeat the forces of darkness, thus inaugurating a Fourth Reich.
