Number 10 – The Ark Of The Covenant
The Ark, which is said to have disappeared between 597 and 586 BC was most wanted by the Nazis who considered it to be the ultimate weapon in World War II. In the early stories, the Ark is known to be gold-lined inside out and too dangerous to touch it with your bare hands. This is the reason why they needed 2 gold-plated poles and four man to carry it. It had the power to destroy cities and level mountains. There are no know records of the Nazis trying to locate or acquire the Ark during their time in power.
Number 9 – The Swastika
Although the Swastika is still considered today as a universal symbol, as the center of all things, when Hitler became in charge of propaganda for the NSDAP he adopted a different dramatic symbol that he knew would attract masses of people to his side. The Nazi Swastika, the cross within a circle was what stood up for the German commander at the time.
Number 8 – Hollow Earth
The idea that mystic cities, kingdoms, aliens and other such things were alive but buried deep beneath the earth, kept circulating from the earliest of times. The Nazi era was also one when people believed in these things again. Different theories have been made up around the German expeditions to Tibet between 1926 and 1943 and which claim that the Nazis’ mission was to find this underworld people and cities, believed to be located beneath the Himalayas.
Number 7 – Jews and Antisemitism
Among the most talked about myths surrounding Jewish people you can find the story of the Antichrist who might have been a Jew; the one in which Christian kids would be forced to drink their blood and another one that makes Jews responsible for the Black Death in 1348-50. Put them all together and you’ll get the ‘why’ in Hitler’s “Final Solution”
Number 6 – New World Order
Hitler used the term “Neuor dnung” numerous times during their propaganda, although it’s poor translation as the “New Order” might have got their thoughts and acts on a totally different road. It would actually mean the restructuring of all borders in Europe and the ideal result would have been the absolute domination of Germany above all there is. We could still say that Hitler did get what he wanted through his Nazi movement, by creating a New World order, led by a totalitarian government, the Listverse reports.
Number 5 – The Holy Grail
Believing that the Grail had been stolen by Christians from the ancient people, Hitler was convinced that the artifact’s place should be in Germany. Himmler is said to have sent Otto Rahn, a mysterious men in his Secret Service, in search for the Holy Grail, all around Europe, Middle East and Iran. Because the war was ended and he still couldn’t find the Grail, he decided he had to kill himself.
Number 4 – Aryan Controversy
Maybe one of the most popular myths around the Nazi party, used to claim that the blonde, blue-eyed and fair skinned were above all the Aryan master-race and they strongly believed that they belonged to it. Nowadays there is no evidence that the Aryan race ever existed.
Number 3 – The Spear of Destiny
Also known as The Holy Lance, was seen by Hitler for the first time in 1908 and ever since he tried everything to have it. In 1938, Hitler managed to move the lance to Nuremberg. This is where the myth begins. The war is said to have started once the lance was safely on German territory and ended in 1945 when the Allied Forces took it from Hitler and he committed suicide.
Number 2 – Nostradamus and Hans Horbinger
After Nostradamus has supposedly had been predicted Hitler’s leadership of Germany and of the Nazi party, there would also be rumors that Hitler believed and followed the theories of Hans Horbinger. Horbinger talked about moons and other cosmic elements which had fallen out of grace gradually as time went on. Nowadays it is believed that Hitler and Himmler made use of this theory to counterbalance the Jewish influence on the sciences.
Number 1 – Hitler
Hitler was long considered some kind of a God by his people, for being gifted with the power to lead them to a better life, for the way he was heading for the Aryan race and for seeing him as their protector and their leader. His entire party would rather die with him or win the war, and this is how he had his people completely under his spell.
