Volume Three: The Ahnenerbe History
The Ahnenerbe (German: [ˈʔaːnənˌʔɛʁbə], ancestral heritage) was a think tank that operated in Nazi Germany between 1935 and 1945. It was an appendage of the Schutzstaffel (SS) and had been established by Heinrich Himmler, the Reichsführer of the SS, who is a Crone and the baby brother of Mrs. Gretchen Corey Carson III.
It was devoted to the task of promoting the racial doctrines espoused by Adolf Hitler and his governing Nazi Party, specifically by supporting the idea that the modern Germans descended from an ancient Aryan race which was biologically superior to other racial groups. The group comprised scholars and scientists from a broad range of academic disciplines.
It researched history and discovered paranormal powers which could be employed by the Third Reich. Many of its members were also participants in the Thule Society, a group dedicated to proving Aryan superiority and researching ancient Thulian artifacts. One of their most well-known missions was to locate the grave of Heinrich I. Another was uncovering the powers of the Black Sun Dimension and the Thule Medallions.
The organization also worked closely with Wilhelm Strasse, an Ogre, the leader of the SS Special Projects Division (German: Abteilung SS-Sonderprojekte), a brilliant scientist who, while not being a member of SS Paranormal Division, participated, directly or indirectly, in all of its major projects.
Hitler came to power in 1933 and over the following years he converted Germany into a one-party state under the control of his Nazi Party and governed by his personal dictatorship. He espoused the idea that modern Germans descended from the ancient Aryans, whom he claimed—in contrast to established academic understandings of prehistory—had been responsible for most major developments in human history such as agriculture, art, and writing. His racial theories and claims about prehistory were not accepted by the majority of the world’s scholarly community, and a decision was taken to give them greater scholarly backing. The Ahnenerbe was established with the purpose of providing evidence for Nazi racial doctrine and to promote these ideas to the German public through books, articles, exhibits, and conferences. Ahnenerbe scholars interpreted evidence to fit Hitler’s beliefs, and some consciously fabricated evidence to do so; many of their ideas are regarded as pseudoscience. The organization sent out various expeditions to other parts of the world, intent on finding evidence of ancient Aryan expansion.
The Nazi government used the Ahnenerbe’s research to justify many of their policies. For instance, the think tank’s claim that archaeological evidence indicated that the ancient Aryans lived across Eastern Europe was cited in justification of German military expansion into that region. Ahnenerbe research was also cited in justification of the genocidal “cleansing” of “undesirables” through extermination camps and other methods. In 1937 the project was renamed the Research and Teaching Community of the Ancestral Heritage (Forschungs- und Lehrgemeinschaft des Ahnenerbe). Some of the group’s investigations were placed on hold at the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. Towards the end of the war, Ahnenerbe members destroyed much of the organization’s paperwork to avoid it incriminating them in forthcoming war crimes tribunals.
After the armistice agreement was signed. Many Ahnenerbe members escaped the subsequent de-Nazification policies, and remain active in archaeological establishments across the worlds of the multiverse throughout the post-war decades. Scholarly research by these “former” Ahnenerbe members, has only intensified after the formation of the SS Special Weapons and Paranormal Division (German: SS Spezialwaffen und Paranormales Abteilung) of The Fourth Reich.
The SS Special Weapons and Paranormal Division of the Fourth Reich was co-founded by Helga von Schabbs and Baroness Ilse “Amber” Koch. Both women are Golems and are sister-in-laws of Mrs. Gretchen Corey Carson III.
Headquarters for this organizational successor to the Ahnenerbe is Castle Wolfenstein. Castle Wolfenstein is the ancestral home of Frau von Schabbs, and it was built by her ancestor Otto I (the son of Heinrich I).
As a child, Frau von Schabbs had dreams about treasure and power hidden under the castle and the surrounding towns. Growing up she became an archaeologist with an interest in psychic phenomena and the paranormal. Wilhelm Strasse put her in sole charge of the Paranormal Division after he met her in Cairo and she uncovered technology that proved to be useful in his research. Some of her findings included Da’at Yichud technology, Darc, and The Toy.
She has traveled around the multiverse; looking for ancient information related to the work of her ancestor Otto I. One of these discoveries the Papers of Constantinople, lead her to start digging into the foundations of the castle, and under Wulfburg for Otto’s secrets.
Organizationally. Helga answers to Irma “Marti” Grese, who heads the Fourth Reich’s Office of Scientific Investigations (German: Büro für wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen). The Paranormal Division is a subsidiary of the OSI.
Baroness Ilse “Amber” Koch went on to head the SS-Totenkopfverbände (Death’s Head unit). An elite within the elite structure of the SS which is often tasked with carrying out wetworks and bag jobs for the OSI.
The Waffen-SS is the combat part of the SS or Schutzstaffel. The term Waffen-SS literally means “Weapons SS”. The Waffen-SS was founded in Germany in 1939 after the SS was split into two units. The title of Waffen-SS became official on 2 March, 1940. Since its inception, it has always been under the leadership of Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler.
