A Childhood Friend Raised Nazi-Illuminati?

The following is a true story. I recently recalled a strange childhood memory that I had pretty much forgotten about.

Growing up in the suburbs of Washington DC, in the mid-seventies, most of the fathers in our neighborhood were in the military, so it wasn’t uncommon for neighbors to move frequently.  I only knew Chris, the boy that lived across the street, for a couple years.  I was probably between 8 and 10 years old at the time.

Although my parents were friends with other military families on our block, I don’t remember them spending any time or being friendly with Chris’ parents. They were not particularly social, as I recall.

I remember thinking his family was odd, and not just because his mother was German (she spoke both German and English.)   I remember that his father was quite fearsome.  I was usually shuffled out the door by the time Chris’ father got home from work.  His mother was doting, smothering, she hovered a lot.  They were very strict but they spoiled Chris rotten – he was treated like a little prince, which was not the experience most kids had in those days.

He loved to show off his expensive toys the way kids do.  Chris had some cool, exotic toys from Germany.  One toy in particular was a real castle with a drawbridge.  I remember I wanted it so much, my own parents eventually gave it to me for Christmas – they must have ordered it from Germany.

One afternoon I was in Chris’s room after school.  He was showing off his stuff again, this time it was a book.  Now, even back then boys didn’t really care much about books, certainly not enough to show one off, but this book was different.  It wasn’t a children’s story.  It was more like a text book with lots of pictures, like one of those old fashioned science or history picture books from the 1950s written for kids.  However, I remember it was really strange, unlike any text book I had every seen or heard of before.  Chris was very proud of it.  But I had the sense he wasn’t supposed to show it to me.   It was like he was showing me a secret – and little boys love to share secrets with other little boys.

I don’t remember too much, but I do remember the impression it made.  I think it was my first exposure to the idea of a lost civilization of Atlantis, and that’s what this book was about.  The book was basically a children’s history book about a superior race of people who believed that they were descendants of this Ancient civilization from Atlantis.   According to this mythology, I suppose the descendants of these survivors eventually became the German people.  To think about it now, it’s a little creepy, but then, as a kid, I had never heard about such things before.  It was fascinating.  It basically contradicted everything I was taught in school or church.

Many occultists, including Rudolf Steiner, have expressed a belief in Atlantis. Moreover, some have said that the Aryan race originated there or among the “Atlanteans” who fled the destruction of their home place.


Nazi mystics believed in historical Thule (also referred to as Hyperborea) as the ancient origin of the Aryan race. The Thule Society or Thule-Gesellschaft was founded in 1918 by German occultist Rudolf von Sebottendorff to pursue research on Thule. The Nazis utilized the Thule Society as a focus point for all sorts of “black ops” projects. This is where the basis for Antarctica not only being a secret UFO base, but the lost land of Thule first originated. Legends and urban myths about Nazi-driven Thule Society exploits have persisted into the 21st century.

Both Hitler and Himmler believed, entirely erroneously, that true Germans were descended from an Aryan ideal and that Nordic culture, from language to folk music, had proved itself superior over the course of history. Aryan man, Hitler said, was “the Prometheus of mankind from whose bright forehead the divine spark of genius has sprung at all times”.

Chris’s mother must have called him out of the room for something because I remember I had a few minutes to flip through the book by myself, until he came back, took it out of my hands, and put it away.  I was probably a little skeptical, like ‘who does this kid think he is,’ but it wasn’t the sort of thing I thought much about afterwards.  Although, I do remember mentioning to my mother that I thought our neighbors were Nazis.  She ignored me, probably thought I was just making stuff up.  His family must have moved shortly after that, as I have few other memories of him, other than playing with his Legos.

Unfortunately, knowing what I know now, I have a very different picture of what might have been going on, and it’s more than a little creepy to realize that it may have been so close to home.

The point of this story is to illustrate:

(1) How a secret society can hide in plain sight, right in your own neighborhood, and you might not even know it.

(2) How completely ordinary yet utterly foreign it all is.  And

(3) There are clues everywhere – the only reason this stuff has been kept carefully hidden is because the rest of us haven’t been paying close enough attention.

Under Operation Paperclip the United States government brought Nazi scientists into the country after World War II.  Nazis worked on the Manhattan Project, they worked for our Space Program, and they worked on several black projects you’ll never hear anything about.  The CIA was involved in some ugly Nazi-like experiments in mind control during the Cold War years. All this information is well documented.  So when your average American says there’s no such thing as a government conspiracy, they’re intentionally ignoring their own history.

Operation Paperclip was the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) program used to recruit the scientists of Nazi Germany for employment by the United States in the aftermath of World War II (1939–45). It was conducted by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA), and in the context of the burgeoning Soviet–American Cold War (1945–91).

To circumvent President Truman’s anti-Nazi order and the Allied Potsdam and Yalta agreements, the JIOA worked independently to create false employment and political biographies for the scientists.


Sixty years ago the US hired Nazi scientists to lead pioneering projects, such as the race to conquer space. These men provided the US with cutting-edge technology which still leads the way today, but at a cost.

The end of World War II saw an intense scramble for Nazi Germany’s many technological secrets. The Allies vied to plunder as much equipment and expertise as possible from the rubble of the Thousand Year Reich for themselves, while preventing others from doing the same.  The range of Germany’s technical achievement astounded Allied scientific intelligence experts accompanying the invading forces in 1945.

Supersonic rockets, nerve gas, jet aircraft, guided missiles, stealth technology and hardened armour were just some of the groundbreaking technologies developed in Nazi laboratories, workshops and factories, even as Germany was losing the war.  And it was the US and the Soviet Union which, in the first days of the Cold War, found themselves in a race against time to uncover Hitler’s scientific secrets.


This is what Svali, a self-professed, former member of the Illuminati, or “The Family” as she calls it, has written about what she learned growing up in an Illuminati bloodline.

The Illuminati are a group of people who follow a philosophy known as “Illuminism” or “enlightenment“. The Illuminati were named several hundred years ago, but trace their roots and history to the ancient mystery religions of Egypt, ancient Babylon, and even Mesopotamia.

I myself have trouble knowing how much of the “cult history” I was taught as a child by my scholarship teachers was merely programming, and how much is accurate truth, so I cannot really be an objective source of information. Like any group, they tend to want to “idealize” their roots.

The Illuminati themselves teach that they have been around for centuries and centuries, even during Roman times, and that Alexander the Great was one of their “prototypes” in the ancient world, as was Hitler in modern times. But the Illuminati as we know it today was formed in the 17th century (out of Catholic roots, ie. the Knights Templar and Roscicrucianism). The idea of a modern ’One World Order’ became popular in the 1700’s with the ideas of Weishaupt and others, and they have been working towards this goal since the mid 18th century.

Weishaupt did not create the Illuminati, they chose him as a figurehead and told him what to write about. The financiers, dating back to the bankers during the times of the Templar Knights who financed the early kings in Europe, created the Illuminati. Weishaupt was their “go fer”, who did their bidding.

Modern day Illuminism is a philosophy funded by the wealthy, but practiced in all social strata. It is a philosophy whose tenets have spread across the world. It started with the German branch of Rosicrucian’s, spread to England, then came to the United states with the first settlers.

To maintain secrecy, this group must also have people completely dedicated to not revealing their roles in the cult- even under threat of death or punishment. The cult wants members who are completely loyal to the group and its tenets, who never question the orders they are given. These qualities in group members ensure the continuance of the cult, and that its secrets are never revealed to the outside world.

Could it be that a secret, insular cult with a bizarre set of religious beliefs and a radically different view of history has existed for centuries, hidden within Western society like a pack of wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing?  We know that secret societies like the Knights Templar and the Freemasons have claimed a Judeo-Christian heritage, but a closer look at their beliefs reveal something very strange, very different.  We know that it is possible for separate sects to exist apart from the rest of society, groups like the Mormons, the Moonies, and the Amish.  There are countless fringe groups and apocalyptic cults like the Branch Davidians that go completely unnoticed until some controversy lands them in the news.  So it is not unreasonable to assume that other sects or groups, with ideas that might be repellant or unfathomable to the average person, with the resources to bribe, threaten, or buy their secrecy, might have remained carefully hidden, avoiding the spotlight for centuries.

The Illuminati are based in Europe, which is where their power base has always been. I remember being told as a young child that America was basically considered their “mission field” or the “land of opportunity” by those whose roots extend for hundreds of years or more into the ancient European dynastic bloodlines.

This is why their power hierarchy around the world, whether in the U.S., Asia, Australia, Canada, or elsewhere will always point back to Europe, where the 13 rulers (they also call them “lords”) are based. Each ruler represents an area of Europe held under his sway; and each one represents an ancient dynastic bloodline.

For example, the Hapsburg bloodline (Merovingian) is still active in Europe, although hidden, as well as the Rothschild and Battenberg bloodlines . In many modern European countries, the heirs of these bloodlines are immensely wealthy, and secretly are the “power behind the throne”, if not the actual rulers.

This is one reason why those of high Illuminati rank/descent in the U.S., for example, can always trace their bloodline or parentage to members of this ruling cabal in Europe; members of leadership councils in the States are always direct descendants, whether legitimate or illegitimate.
