Re-writing history: the Nazi treasure, the greatest treasure disappeared from history

The Guinness Book of World Records says that “the greatest unsolved robbery” was the disappearance of the entire German treasury at the end of the war.

Deutschkatharinenberg (GERMANY) – An expedition is organized, slowly and secretly, to lay hands on a set of paintings and art objects supposedly hidden by the Nazis. The Hatvany collection could well be found.

The Austrian journalist Burkhart List have identified the place where the Nazis could have hidden some of the Hatvany collection with the arrival of the Red Army. According to the Daily Mail, is putting his hand on unpublished records of the Wehrmacht that the reporter could find. “During the winter of 1944, the archives have revealed that a mysterious convoy arrived from Budapest,” he has said. “The photographs also showed a significant division of SS near the mines, while there has never been a military operation in the area. “

A radar sensor has since proven the existence of a secret room, fifty meters underground in old mine workings of the Ore Mountains, a chain of cobalt and silver between the Czech Republic of Germany. An expedition is about to be launched in June to unravel the mystery.

Art historians have been excited for this search. The collection of Baron Ferenc Hatvany rich Hungarian industrial looted by the Nazis for his Jewish origins, is indeed famous. This is to maintain freedom that the collector handed, forced to Adolf Eichmann. If a party has been found after the war, paintings by Monet, Manet and Cézanne, sculptures and precious tapestries have not been revised since cataloged works, all of which is now estimated at more than one billion euros, could be in the mine. Protected from contacts outside the stable environment of the mine lets hope a good state of preservation.
The treasure of the Nazis

At their peak in 1949, the United States holds half of all the gold ever mined in history, almost 22,000 tons. While the world is difficult to extirpate the Great Depression, a new crisis is making great strides. It threatens the entire civilization. Adolf Hitler came to power when Germany was still shaky from its defeat in the First World War. Its gold reserves are empty and worthless currency. Having promised to return the country to its original glory, Hitler began to rebuild the German Empire. To do this, he needs gold. It is essential to understand that the gold reserves of Germany in 1939 are not huge, about 200 million and they were already heavily engaged in particular in the construction of the German war machine. Moreover, the country can not afford to buy manufactured goods abroad or basic raw materials with its weak Reichsmark. His only alternative is gold.

Also, as and when she walks in Europe, the German army plundered the way the gold reserves of nations. In 1938, Czechoslovakia with its $ 30 million in gold, Poland in 1939 with $ 85 million in gold. In fact, it started in 1938 with the Anschluss in Austria. They first took the gold of the Austrians, and in 1939 they took over the Czech reserves finishing occupy Czechoslovakia, and the beginning of the war, whenever they had mastered a country , they looted gold.

Most of Hitler’s loot is stored in the vaults of the Reichsbank in Berlin. But the tide was turning for the Reich that will last a thousand years. Intensive day and night bombings by Allied forces systematically destroy Hitler’s war machine by hitting the heart, that is to say by destroying industrial infrastructure itself built on the stolen gold.

February 3, 1945 more than 900 bombers unleash nearly 2,300 tons of bombs on Berlin. The city is reduced to the state of ashes and ruins, the Reichsbank was virtually destroyed. In February 1945, what remained of the gold reserves at the Reichsbank was probably loaded onto trucks by prisoners, probably French, and transported to Merkers south of Germany.

This spring 1945, the Third Army of General Patton ahead of Germany as a juggernaut. On April 4, it enters the city of Merkers. Rumors are circulating about a secret cargo recently arrived in Berlin and was hidden close by, in a potassium mine. Out of curiosity, several GI decided to go investigate. Upon leaving the elevator, eight hundred feet below, they come face to face with a huge steel door. It sends a message to Patton, what should we do? Patton’s response: “saute the door.” The genius was about to blow the door, someone has made a half-stick of dynamite enough to blow up the wall right next to it without having to worry for the vault.

General Bradley, Patton and Eisenhower at the incredible discovery.

In the rest room more than 7,000 bags neatly stacked. What Americans are inside is so amazing that three of the most powerful men in the world want to see with their own eyes. George Patton, Bradley and his superior Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. The cream has moved to a scene out of the ordinary. More than 8,000 bars of gold ingots, 2,000 bags of gold coins: Reichsmarks, the English sovereigns, napoleons, U.S. dollar coins 20 gold and hundreds of bags of gold coins coming from other countries. Advancing towards the bottom of the mine, Patton discovered the cache of a sinister booty.

While the back of the room consisted of property that had been stolen from victims of the concentration camps. There was a stack of suitcases filled with silverware, alliances, gold teeth. Each bag, box or trunk had been carefully cataloged and stamped with a label marked Melmer. Melmer was a German SS officer who did the back and forth with the concentration camps to pick up everything he could as gold teeth, wedding rings, gold watches to the route to Berlin. During the war, he had been like that at least 77 shipments containing the fruits of his plunder.

Ce genre de lingot est retrouvé de plus en plus couramment en Argentine dans des coffrets de sécurité.
This kind of ingot is found more commonly in Argentina in safes.

Assets brought to account Melmer then figure more than one million U.S. dollars. Today this amount exceeds the billion, but this discovery is still only the visible part of the iceberg. At the end of the war, the Germans looted for about $ 580 million in gold through the occupied countries. Thereupon, an estimated value of $ 450 million in gold during the war transferred to Switzerland and to other countries.

In 1946, he was given the gold to an international commission to quantify the damage to victims of the Holocaust. The surplus is given to an Allied Commission that redistributes the stolen nations. Europe is devastated and falls painfully the Second World War. The United States appear as the richest country in history. To rebuild their economy, war-torn nations are forced to buy dollars. Their payment is gold. As a result, the gold reserves of the United States are soaring.

The biggest share is stored in five levels in Manhattan vaults of the Federal Reserve. At the time, there was in the basement of Manhattan probably about a quarter or a third of all the gold mined in the mines.

Relying on such a quantity of gold, the dollar is the strongest currency in the world during this period. Countries settle their debts in dollars and governments can exchange their dollars for gold.

The power transfer is made from Nazi Germany to the United States of America, but we are in 2013 and the Chinese Communists, became more capitalist than capitalism itself quietly take over.


Otto Skorzeny in 1943
Otto Skorzeny in 1943

To understand how much wealth and gold came out of Germany since 1945, it is to follow the route of the ace elite SS commando Otto Skorzeny.

It was long believed that the express request of the Führer, he multiplied missions behind enemy lines. The most spectacular of them, the Greif operation was to create a group of American soldiers forged in order to sow confusion in the rear lines of the Allies during the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944, and operating one of the first false flag attacks of the war. it is even feared that he Att to assassinate the Commander of the Allied forces in Europe, U.S. General Eisenhower.

Otto Skorzeny was related to the concentration camp at Oranienburg Sachsenhausen according to the testimony of French deportees who appear in the book Sachso, book published by the friendly Sachsenhausen in 1982 Edition human Earth.

Towards the end of the war, he participated in the creation of Die Spinne (Spider), responsible for ensuring the good old SS flight to Italy.

At the end of the war, it is Obersturmbannführer and for his exploits, decorated with oak leaves German.

At the German surrender in 1945, he was imprisoned for his Nazi activities, but was acquitted of the charges against him. Use the uniforms of enemy soldiers is an act forbidden by various treaties of war, but he was pardoned as an English officer Forest Yeo-Thomas confirmed on the final day of the trial of Otto Skorzeny, the British had also previously used this method to infiltrate prisons in France, to deliver some of them.

After the war, Skorzeny fled to Franco’s Spain. He became head of treasury Nazi war without Hitler’s knowledge made by Martin Bormann in 1944. His own organization, Bruderschaft (the “Brotherhood”), turns into ODESSA (“Organization of the former SS members”, an organization that was responsible for managing the funds recovered by the former SS and permits and provide materially their future life).

In 1953, Skorzeny was sent by former General Reinhard Gehlen in Egypt as military adviser General Mohammed Naguib. With General Wilhelm Fahrmbacher and several former Nazis such Oskar Munzel, former general Panzer Division, Leopold Gleim, former head of the bodyguard of Hitler, Joachim Daemling, former head of the Gestapo in Dusseldorf and Dr. Hans Eisele camp Buchenwald, he structure of the military and police forces in the country, resulting in the first Palestinian commandos.

In 1963, the Mossad learned that one of his former subordinates, H.Mann is responsible for the safety of German scientists working for Egypt in the development of non-conventional weapons. Mossad tries to recruit Skorzeny, who accepts in exchange for a commitment from the Israelis not to seek to remove later. Thanks to him, the Mossad harvest important information on the structure and the scientific program of Egyptian research. The failure of one will lead to the end of its collaboration with hébreu910 State.

In 1970, he created with Gerhard von Hartmut Schubert organization of anti-Franco struggle based in Spain, which carries out attacks and recruiting mercenaries Paladin group. He also indulged in arms trafficking, through his company Atlantico, located in Franco’s Spain.

He died July 6, 1975 of cancer in Madrid. He married Ilse von Finkenstein second marriage.


Martin Bormann in 1940
Martin Bormann in 1940

This is Martin Bormann had organized the transfer to Argentina at the end of the war. Indeed, some authors asserted that the treasure had been stolen by the Germans Peron couple who had welcomed with open many war criminals arm. The author has stepped into the breach by imagining that the treasure was hidden in the tomb of Eva Perón.

Others believe that Bormann had survived as Soviet spy and he continued to advise the Soviets after the war.

Collaborator sentenced to death in Belgium in 1946, Paul Van Aerschodt (1922-2011) lived under the name of Pablo Simons San Sebastian in Spain, where she met a journalist from Gilbert Dupont. Paul van Aerschodt claims to have met Martin Bormann “four times to 1960” in La Paz, Bolivia, where he had fled in 1947 “with a visa obtained in a few days the intervention of a Claretian Father Bishop Antezana. ” His statements should revive the controversy over the death of Nazi dignitary Secretary of Adolf Hitler, officially declared dead in 1945, and revived the controversy over the support of the Church in Nazi criminals on the run. “Bormann came from Paraguay. He prepared with a dozen officers a coup to overthrow Perón in Argentina, “he said. “Bormann had been a fanatical […] Under the name Augustin von Lembach, he pretended to be a Redemptorist father and wore a black cassock, which did good laugh,” he added. “He celebrated communions, weddings, funerals and administered the last rites,” he said. It is in this respect interesting to note that this false identity in 1981 is cited
Controversy over the death of Martin Borman

Many controversies remain about the death of Bormann. Indeed, some question the analyzes of the teeth of the skeleton and DNA analysis.

Personalities as the son of Adolf Eichmann or Simon Wiesenthal (the latter in the final chapter of The Murderers Among Us, published in 1967) claimed that he was alive in South America, particularly in Paraguay.

Some also say that he died in South America and his body was brought back to Germany he was discovered in Berlin. This thesis is based on the red clay found on the skeleton Lerther station. This type of clay is not in Berlin but in Ita Paraguay where the presence of Bormann was suspected. These two theories are discussed in the documentary “Bormann, a man in the shadow of Hitler.” (This link:

C'est dans un musée dédié à la fausse monnaie que l'on retrouve une partie de la monnaie fabriquée par les services des SS.
It is a museum dedicated to the counterfeit money found part of the money made ​​by the services of SS.

Part of the German war chest will be manufactured by the German themselves are counterfeits made by false Jewish coin “engaged” by the SS.

The Operation Bernhard is the name of the German project to destabilize the British economy during the second world war by flooding the country of fake banknotes of £ 5, £ 10, £ 20 and £ 50.

The project started in 1942, led by SS Major Bernhard Krüger rising a team of 142 counterfeiters selected from prisoners of Sachsenhausen. The first job is to write detailed plates reproducing the pattern of the ticket, and then make the watermarked paper and finally crack the code for generating the authentic serial numbers. Tickets and made part of the finest ever fake products, it is very difficult to distinguish true.

The initial plan to drop these counterfeits by air over England can not be put into practice and the tickets are used for the purchase of goods or to pay German agents as famous Elyesa Bazna (Cicero) that had managed to photograph documents on the landing.

These counterfeits are detected by the Bank of England, when an employee noticed in its records that the same serial number had been used on two different tickets. Total is 8,965,080 counterfeits that were made for a total of £ 134,610,810. After the evacuation of Sachsenhausen camp in April 1945, the team of counterfeiters is transferred to Redl-Zipf in Austria, an annex of the Mauthausen camp, then in Ebensee. In early May 1945 the performance of the team is ordered, but the camp was liberated by U.S. forces on May 5, 1945, provides for their lives.

Some tickets were found in 1959 by divers in Lake Toplitz near Ebensee, others continued to circulate in England for years ….


It is obvious that the best carrier to evacuate the German treasure was and remains the U-977.Peu matter what the rationalists say, it is the essential link.


Notez la rouille  qui envahit la coque du U-977
Note the rust invades the hull of U-977

August 17, 1945

In the sparkling waters off Mar del Plata, Argentina, the bow of a submarine breaking the surface. Appears when the U-977, commanded by Captain Heinz Schäffer. He stops as dead in the water until the Argentine cruiser Belgrano docks. Schäffer then is routed to the edge of Belgrano and puts his ship and crew.

During the debriefing, the Argentine Commodore told Schäffer:

“Captain, I must tell you that your boat is believed to have sunk the ship steam Brazilian Bahia, a few days ago. It is also believed that you had Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun and Martin Bormann on board and have them put ashore on the southern part of our continent. “

While Schäffer was a “guest” aboard the Belgrano, the newspaper El Dia in the Uruguayan capital Montevideo ran to the front of the story, claiming that the U-977 had landed first near Comodoro Rivadavia in the south of Argentina.

El Dia said Hitler, Eva Braun, Bormann, twin six-year-old son of Hitler by another mistress, their nanny and a half dozen Nazi leaders took inflatable boats in Golfo San Jorge, go to land in Patagonia, and now they were all on the way to the “new Berchtesgaden in Antarctica.”

The President of Argentina, Juan Domingo Peron, took the report seriously enough to have actually lead Schäffer in Buenos Aires and the question … personally.

Schäffer Peron was reminded that:

Not a single document recognizes the skill and endurance that had happened to make this first long trip in a submarine under such conditions. No, every news story, all reports, feature article and rumors on the same theme stale old gave Heinz Schäffer.Comment reason could he have moved as far as Hitler … without witnesses?

Thus, with Heinz Schäffer flesh before them, it was natural that these gentlemen, Peron and Trumann, should be sure of them and almost everything to retrieve information about the Führer, they were so eager to capture him alive despite the fact that he had so long been reported dead.

Calvary Schäffer was just beginning. The War Department of the United States “has asked for me to be given to the United States, and before long, I was transferred to a prison camp major war in Washington, where I found a number of high-ranking German officers. “(as he wrote later)

For weeks, day after day, Americans have repeated the accusation: “You have carried Hitler.”

A questioning of the British Admiralty said:

“That’s because you helped Hitler to escape, Schäffer, you are much more interesting from our point of view, (Otto) Otto Skorzeny, who gave Mussolini in freedom.”

“Otto Wehrmut, commander of U-530, was suddenly brought face to face with me, and then we found ourselves in the same room. We had never met before, but we saw at once that it was all part of a plan. They hoped that in the first wave of our meeting we were happy reunion until we forget ourselves as to discuss in front of all their dictaphones, history of interior an escape and a ghost train.

“They must have been very upset when nothing emerged from our conversation and have the facts on record completely independent travel of our submarines.”

The U-530 sailed to Argentina after completing a dangerous secret mission in the waters near the United States at the beginning of April 1945. It was the will of his commander, Otto Wermuth, to go to Argentina rather than any other of the Allies. Wermuth was not involved in the load operation.

U-977 b2

The boat went to Mar del Plata, July 10, 1945. All newspapers, code books, documents, guns, torpedoes and ammunition had been dropped overboard in advance and there was even an attempt to sabotage the diesels. The boat was found in a state inexplicably “corrosive”.

So here is the explanation: the submarine U-977 would ALL carried in its hold even many Führer.De boxes of gold bullion have been landed, if dropped overboard off Argentina .

Continue my research on this and I still have many pages to write.

Re-writing history: Otto Rahn and the treasure of Rennes-le-Château


Otto Rahn,the great seeker,archeologist and writer.
Otto Rahn,the great seeker,archeologist and writer.

The founders of the Third Reich were involved in esoteric questions that inevitably along the mysteries associated with the valley of Rennes-le-Château. Their interests were not, however, limited to the ephemeral, there is evidence of the tenacity with which they pursued the physical associations of the valley. Many books bound in Rennes-le-Château mention a battalion of German mining engineers made excavations in the region during the Second World War.

The path of research leads to a certain Otto Rahn, a German, born in 1904 in Michelstadt, Germany. He attended the University of Berlin, where he studied literature and philology (the science of language). During his youth, Otto Rahn had been attracted to the study of the Grail he took the idea from the novel by Wolfram von Eschenbach, Parzival and the history of the Cathars. He became intrigued by the statement that the Holy Grail is hidden, according Parzifal in the holy mountain of Montsalvat. It was important, especially when Rahn found that the Cathar fortress of Montsegur boasted a huge cave near known Montsalvat. It was at least intrigued enough to spend much time and energy to check the coincidence.

Although that Eschenbach could allegedly could not read or write the story of Parzival had been passed down through the years by “Minnesingers” troubadours and minstrels of the Middle Ages. In any case, records show that the story was first written between 1200 and 1210, at least 33 years before the siege of Montsegur.

After much deliberation about the history, it seems that Otto Rahn had come to the conclusion that the poem Monsalvat the Grail was actually the Montsegur Cathars and decided to visit the region to continue his research.

During his travels in the region, audits led to the Holy Grail, the German folk legends and history of the Cathars, he fell on a elderl, former Austrian army colonel, Karl-Maria Wiligut Weisthor, an expert in German and pre-medieval history, runes, legends, magic and the occult. Weisthor quickly became the most reliable friend Rahn. It was to prove a historic meeting for Wiligut (using the name Weisthor) then joined the SS in 1933 and was promoted to brigadier general in 1936, when he became an adviser to Heinrich Himmler on occult matters, later becoming better known in the inner circles of the German secret societies as the “Rasputin” Himmler.

It is in this weird maelstrom of neo-Nazi ideas walked Otto Rahn, little aware that he was studying the Cathars had been audited by leading National Socialists as well as scientists from the authors of many customs related the Nazis. In fact, Hitler was so interested in the traditions and legends of the Middle Ages he had committed as a composer and researcher, Carl Orff to go medieval monasteries in Europe, to collect old folk songs and tunes. A combination of this material later became known as the famous Carmina Burana and was played at almost every rally.

One can only imagine the response when the connection through his friend Weisthor with Himmler, Otto Rahn announced that it was the location of the Holy Grail, the treasures of the temple of Solomon and the Ark of the Covenant unique sacred relics. Himmler and Co. must have been on the moon Hörbiger!

Records show that Himmler and possibly the Thule Society have agreed to fund the trip Otto Rahn in Languedoc in 1931, where he stayed in the village of Lavelanet. With that, he travels, he obviously convinced himself that Montsegur was indeed the Monsalvat Legend of Parzival. Although he discovered several cave systems, it had not yet found a treasure. Nevertheless, he remains convinced that he was on the right track. He also found the back of the cave drawings on the surface of the rock representing Templars, one of which had a lance – perhaps the spear of Longinus, Spear of Destiny! The result of his early foray into Montsegur was the first Crusade against the Grail book published in 1933.

In this paper, Rahn has traced the history of what he has accomplished so far and suggested that the evidence showed that there were two Grails – a Emerald Cup and a stone tablet. This artifact was inscribed with runes by a race of pre-German supermen who had attained the ultimate knowledge of the “law of life.” They represented the “great tradition” that was only valid for some people, a theory that linked with the German legend and beliefs of the Thule Society that the North was inhabited by the super Hyperborean race. Needless to say, the book has found an audience ready to Hitler, Rosenberg, Hess, Dietrich Ekhart Himmler and others driving!

In a written letter Weisthor in September 1935 Otto Rahn informed his friend that he was at a place where he had reason to believe that the Grail could be found, and that Weisthor must keep secret the material except to mention Himmler. Thus, over the next few years, Otto Rahn, historian and philologist, became inextricably involved in the hierarchy of Nazi party meeting with Himmler, Alfred Rosenberg and Wolfram Sievers. He may not be realized that Adolf Hitler was an avid student of the occult since his youth, and the obsession of the Führer engulf his quest.

Otto Rahn returned to the region of Montsegur for a short period in 1937, but at that time the ominous rumblings of an impending war could be felt throughout Europe. Himmler, meanwhile, met with Dr. Hermann Wirth, who gave him the idea of ​​creating a research unit of German history.

This was the Deutsches Ahnenerbe, a company that has become totally dependent on the support of the SS. Rahn Weisthor and continued to work on various projects, but have not received new assignments Himmler for the previous four years, it was obvious that Rahn was considered untrustworthy because he was not a member of the SS. Rahn has remedied the oversight by joining the SS Black Order privately March 12, 1936. Magically, once he joined the club SS, doors began to open up to private Rahn. April 20, 1936, he was promoted to sergeant, without ever having been a corporal. Almost immediately, he received an assignment to carry out a survey of Iceland to investigate the field, on the possible site of Hyperborea.

The rise in the ranks Rahn was nothing less than spectacular. He is the technical officer course 30 January 1937 and 2nd Lieutenant of the Black Order of April 20, 1937. His rise continued until September 1, 1938 when he was promoted to 1st lieutenant. his second book, “The Courtiers of Lucifer” was published in 1936 and quickly became the bible of the National Socialist Party.

Meanwhile Himmler chose Wewelsburg Castle in Bavaria to be the future home of the Spear of Longinus, the Holy Grail and other treasures of Solomon’s Temple, which Otto Rahn had spoken. However, it was too dangerous to travel in peace. Better to wait for the next war with France. In 1937, an expedition of the Languedoc Rahn is thought to have been just to make sure that the cache remained undiscovered by someone else.

On June 9, 1938, Rahn sought and obtained leave to write the following courtiers Lucifer. From that moment, his life took an unexpected turn for the worse. He had his private and public point of view – that he was opposed to war and instead, he thought Germany and Europe should convert to Catharism! Opposition to the coming war was treason.

On February 28, 1939, Otto Rahn wrote a letter of resignation to Gruppenführer Karl Wolff, chief of staff personnel Himmler, speaking of “serious reasons” for his resignation that seems to Reichsführer in person at the next visit Berlin.

The circumstances of the “extremely serious nature” which refers Rahn, and may not be forwarded by letter, like having a ring ominous. Nobody really knows the scope of the dilemma faced Rahn, but it seems reasonable to conclude that he was in a life close to death … kind of a situation, or worse, in a position of “death against death” (Free translation of a German phrase) that left the time the method is determined.

The famous “Desert Fox”, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel was about to suffer the same fate at a somewhat later date. His choice fell on suicide in honor or disgrace execution.

The reason for embarrassment Rahn leaves much room for speculation. Its easy to change his political views and his vision of a new world order, with Germany as its leader, were certainly in unison with the ambition to Himmler as expressed in these words:

“After the war, we’re really going to build our order, the order in which we gave his most important principles ten years before the war. We will continue our veterans, for twenty years after the war, while the tradition can be established, a tradition that will last thirty, thirty-five or forty years, an entire generation. Then, the Order will be young and strong, revolutionary and active in his march to the future. He will be able to fulfill his duty and provide the Germanic peoples with an elite. This elite will unite the people and the whole of Europe. ”

Even the charge to oppose the war effort could easily be canceled by Himmler if Rahn had agreed to cease and desist. Thus, we are left with the uncomfortable and difficult to shake that something else was involved feeling. The last question seems to revolve around the discoveries Rahn made during his travels in the Languedoc. Was he a man who knew too much, or was he a man who had revealed too little about the results of his research – for the treasures of Solomon and the Emerald Cup. Nobody will ever know the answer to this question. What we do know is that Rahn quickly received favorable to his request for discharge of the SS response.

There are fragmentary Rahn tried to save his life one day during this period by proposing that he be allowed to return to Languedoc and live his life in the solitude of the mountains of the Pyrenees evidence. His request was denied and he was left with two remaining options, death by suicide or death by execution

On March 13, 1939 Otto Rahn disappeared.

May 18, 1939, the following notice of death appeared in the Berlin edition of “Völkischer Beobachter”

“Otto Rahn died! “

But the Grail story does not end with the death of Otto Rahn. Although France was occupied by the Germans in June 1940 Himmler made no attempt to retrieve the Grail of Montsegur Otto Rahn. Instead, the excavation expeditions were sent by the Ahnenerbe in other jurisdictions where the Nazi forces invaded, and the other to Tibet in search of the origins of the Aryan race.

Himmler may have thought that with the location of the treasure described reasonably, there was no reason to hurry. Why not wait until all of France was occupied – things would be even easier then. However, the end of 1942, the Nazi forces had received several setbacks, including y EI Alamein, and Czechoslovakia, the assassination of Heydrich. Allied forces invaded Europe and suddenly time was running out to get the treasure. So, in June 1943 an expert meeting was Montsegur and various other possible hiding places in the region of Languedoc, which Rennes-Ie-Chateau.

These experts consisted of historians, archaeologists and geologists. In this case, all the teams came up empty handed. Himmler was left with few options to consider. The treasure existed or not? If it existed, and was hidden in the region of Montsegur and if that were the case, if it had been located by Otto Rahn? The only thing that Himmler thought rang true is that Otto Rahn had determined the approximate location of the treasure and on the basis of this conviction, he concluded that the treasure should be in a place that Otto Rahn or teams of experts had found. Otto Rahn, of course, could not be found because he had already had his “accident” and Himmler realized that he needed a different approach to the problem and someone to attack laterally instead of front. A man came to mind – SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny.

Skorzeny had the reputation of being a real soldier, who, if he accepts a mission, usually never failed. Skorzeny had a unique approach to problem solving. He was an engineer by profession and was also a gifted linguist. He leapt to fame in achieving success, daring mountain top rescue of Mussolini at the end of the war – a feat that was considered impossible. Indeed, such was his audacity that on several occasions he met David Stirling, founder of the British Special Air Service for coffee in different European cities, while the war was in full swing.

Skorzeny also had an intelligence background, having worked for Admiral Canaris, head of German intelligence and sometimes had received his orders directly from Himmler. April 20, 1942, he was promoted as “head of the special forces of Germany”, operating from a hunting lodge Friendenthal in Bavaria. Thus in February 1944, after several other missions, Skorzeny received a call from Himmler to recover the treasure of Montsegur.

After the plans and instructions to his men, Otto Skorzeny needed with a small commando arrived in the Languedoc and installed a base camp at Montsegur. They spent the next day reconnaissance of the area, making several interesting discoveries, but none has found the treasure. Skorzeny then decided to ignore where Otto Rahn had reported, and focus on the logic and unlikely hiding places that would not easily arise.

As Montsegur Castle sits atop a mountain peak available only on three sides, with a peak of several thousand feet of each other, Skorzeny not concentrated at the edge of the precipice of rock. After rappelling down the vertical rock face, he sought and found evidence of old tracks leading away from the foot of the mountain. Following these, he finally discovered a walled cave, which, when broken open, would have revealed the treasure. According to The Emerald Cup – Ark of Gold, by Colonel Howard Buechner, Skorzeny then sent a message (probably radio) at the headquarters of Himmler in Berlin:

[Signed] Scar

The answer quickly followed:

Well done. Congratulations. Look at the sky at noon tomorrow. Wait for our arrival.
[Signed Reichsführer – SS]

According to Buechner, Skorzeny had unwittingly discovered the treasure on the eve of the 700th anniversary of the fall of Montsegur (16 March 1944), and was surprised to see a large gathering of descendants Cathars, en route to the castle to pay tribute to their ancestors. The number 700 is doubly important these Cathars recent days to an ancient prophecy foretold: – “At the end of 700 years the laurel will be green again. ”

Whatever this strange sentence actually meant, an unusual group was found for the anniversary. Although they asked for permission to go to the castle of the German military governor of the region, and had been refused, they still gathered at the foot of the mountain, ready for the long walk to the ruins of the fortress. At this moment, as luck would have it, Skorzeny and his small group of commandos dropped on them. For a moment, everything must have seemed lost, but Skorzeny, when approached by pilgrims for permission, saw no reason to refuse. Thus, the group arrived at the fortress in mid-day, just as Skorzeny told them to “look at the sky.”

Probably hidden by the crowd, a German plane flying high, using equipment “skywriting”, “painted” a huge Celtic cross in the sky. For Skorzeny, he reported that his mission was almost over, but for pilgrims to Montsegur, a miracle happened. The next day, an official delegation comprising Reichsminister Alfred Rosenberg and Colonel Wolfram Sievers of the Ahnenerbe came to congratulate Skorzeny.

Arrangements were made so that engineers can be brought to the hidden treasure and to be returned to the small town of Merkers, 40 km from Berlin. And here, after it was cataloged by members handpicked the Ahnenerbe, most disappeared in various parts of the Reich in ruins. According to Colonel Howard Buechner, the catalog of treasures included:
1. Thousands of gold coins

2. Items that were believed to come from the temple of Solomon, which included the gold plates and fragments of wood that had once made up the ark of Moses … a gold plated table, a seven-branched candelabrum, an urn of gold, personal, harp, sword, gold plates and countless vases, many small gold and a number of gems bells and onyx stones, some of which bore inscriptions …

3. Twelve stone tablets bearing pre-runic inscriptions which none of the experts were able to read. These elements include the Grail Stone German and Otto Rahn.

4. A beautiful silver with an emerald as what appeared to be Jasper basis Cup. Three gold cup plates were inscribed with cuneiform script in an ancient language.

5. A large number of religious objects of various types from different eras … crosses that were of gold or silver and adorned with pearls and precious stones.

6. Precious stones in abundance in all shapes and sizes

Once cataloged, many gold coins were melted and turned into bullion and the Nazis began to disperse around the treasure … and to Germany.

the world in the last days of the war

City Merkers fell to the 3rd U.S. Army General George Patton. His men soon discovered the salt mines near where the treasure was hidden, and the amounts recovered which they can give an idea of ​​the size of the original distance. When General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Omar Bradley and Patton personally inspected the mine: Here are the official account paid later to records:

Gold bullion … 600, 750 bags of gold coins … many other valuables mainly in the form of paper money. The estimated value of the treasure was $ 250 million (according to the standards of 1945, when gold was selling at $ 35 per ounce).

This of course, represented only a small part of the treasure that was not dispersed by the time before the Americans arrived. Indeed, Buechner estimates the present value of a day could be close to $ 60 billion!

So what happened to the treasure of millennia? According to Buechner, records show that some were shipped to Antarctica (New Reich Agharta) and other parts of South America, while some were buried deep beneath the fortress of Wewelsburg in Bavaria and a box bronze, containing important documents were buried in a secret cave under the glacier Schleigleiss near Mountain Pass Zillertal in Bavaria. A final deposit is thought to have been hidden in the secret complex in the mountain hut on Berchtesgarden, Hitler’s home.

The latest records show that the treasure of the Temple of Solomon was sent from the castle Wewelsburg to Berchtesgarden in March 1945. He was transported by truck to the Obersalzberg and stored in one or more of the many underground that riddle the mountain. There he was sealed in bunkers and under the watchful eye of a continuous contingent of soldiers SS. When the bunkers have been explored by the troops of 101st., U.S. Airborne Division in the first days of May 1945, they found provisions and treasures in abundance, but the treasure of Solomon had disappeared.

Is this the last story that will be given to glimpse the light that will lead us to the Holy Grail and the treasure? Probably not, the experts agreed (in the 70s) that Schleigleiss glacier is due to deliver his secret … in 1995, after which we expect that hunting could resume.

A word of caution. We are indebted to Co! Onel H.Buechner for its history of Otto Rahn and the treasures of Montsegur. We are particularly impressed by the patience he showed in waiting until 1991 to release what should in theory be the biggest story of treasure hunt of all time. History has apparently begun to us again, in no Time Magazine. 43 dated 25th October 1993, an article by Michael Walsh has been written about the spoils of World War II and did not even mention the treasure of the Temple of Solomon. So who do we believe, Buechner or Walsh?



There is a second story about the death and disappearance of Otto Rahn … and here it is:

Otto Rahn was homosexuel.Il have had a relationship … or his conditon would embarrass a senior leader SS … plus, there was a treasure to get.


Other notes on Otto Rahn

Since his childhood, he is passionate about the myths and Germanic epics.

He did not recognize that Christianity, in which he grew up … But then it was a little closer every day pagan traditions, believing that his ancestors were pagans and heretics own gods!

He completed his studies in college and in 1922, he began studying law …

He was interested in troubadours as Guyot of Provins, the troubadours and minnesingers (Minnesang) as Wolfram von Eschenbach.

In 1930, he settled in Razès (to Rennes-le-Château – in Aude) to study the history of Catharism and his research led him to Montsegur, a castle that had been identified as Castle of the Grail in the story of Parzival

With the support of the Countess Pujol and his driver, he visited the most important sites of Catharism, he recounted his career in “Crusade against the Grail – The Story of the Albigensian”

To write this book, he moved to Ussat-les-Bains (Ariege) and to live it acquired the Hotel des chestnut, this purchase was a fiasco, it has accumulated debts paid down with advances his German publisher.

When he left that place, there is never returned.

Otto Rahn led several expeditions in Ariege, he hoped to find the origins of the legend of Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach and thought he could recover the Grail, pagan symbol.

He met Antonin Gadal, Maurice Magre Déodat Roché and Countess Pujol-Murat

His first book has not been a great success, but …. he drew attention to Himmler, always a big fan of everything that touched the esoteric.

Otto Rahn entered the Schutzstaffel (SS) as an archaeologist to perform research on Catharism.

It was then incorporated directly into the state Major Himmler where he met Karl Wolf, adjutant and “sacred character”.

He also had Karl Maria Wiligut who worked on “psychological forces cell recollections” (?)

Wiligut was the secret of Hitler’s mentor, he was dubbed the “Himmler’s Rasputin.”

He wrote “The secret runes Seyfried” and “secret king”, it was mainly the inventor of all the pagan trappings of Nazism, there seems to be a mysterious man to perfection, I probably would have dreaded the meeting

Otto Rahn has progressed rapidly in the hierarchy, to achieve the rank of Obersturmführer.

He eventually inspired the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark” starring Harrison Ford.






Ré-écrire l’histoire : Otto Rahn et le trésor de Rennes-le-Château

Le grand chercheur ,archéologue et écrivain Otto Rahn
Le grand chercheur ,archéologue et écrivain Otto Rahn

Les fondateurs du IIIe Reich ont été impliqués dans les questions ésotériques qui longent inévitablement les mystères associés à la vallée de Rennes-le-Château. Leurs intérêts ne se sont toutefois pas limités à l’éphémère, il existe des preuves de la ténacité avec laquelle ils ont poursuivi les associations matérielles de la vallée. Beaucoup de livres assortis sur Rennes-le-Château mentionnent qu’un bataillon d’ingénieurs des mines allemandes fait des fouilles dans la région au cours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale.

Le sentier de la recherche  mène à un certain  Otto Rahn, un Allemand, né en 1904 à Michelstadt, Allemagne. Il a fréquenté l’université de Berlin, où il a étudié la littérature et la philologie (la science du langage). Durant sa jeunesse, Otto Rahn avait été attiré à l’étude sur le  Graal  qu’il prit l’idée dans le roman de  Wolfram von Eschenbach, Parzifal et l’histoire des Cathares. Il est devenu particulièrement intrigué par la mention que le  Saint Graal serait  caché, selon Parzifal, dans la sainte montagne de Montsalvat. C’était important, surtout quand Rahn a découvert que la forteresse cathare de Montségur se vantait d’avoir une grotte gigantesque à proximité connue sous le nom Montsalvat. Il a été au moins assez intrigué de consacrer beaucoup de temps et d’énergie à vérifier la coïncidence.

Bien qu’ Eschenbach ne pourrait prétendument ne savoir  ni lire ni écrire, l’histoire de Parzifal avait été transmise à travers les années par les «Minnesingers», troubadours ou ménestrels de l’époque médiévale. En tout cas les dossiers montrent que l’histoire a d’abord été écrit entre 1200 et 1210, au moins 33 ans avant le siège de Montségur.

Après de nombreuses délibérations sur l’histoire, il semblerait qu’ Otto Rahn en était  arrivé à la conclusion que le Monsalvat du poème sur le  Graal était en réalité le Montsegur des Cathares et il a décidé de visiter la région pour poursuivre ses recherches.

Au cours de ses voyages dans la région, ses vérifications le  menèrent  à Saint-Graal, les légendes populaires allemandes et l’histoire des Cathares, il est tombé sur un elderl; ancien autrichien colonel de l’armée, Karl Maria Wiligut-Weisthor, un expert en germanique et pré-médiéval histoire, runes, les légendes, la magie et l’occultisme. Weisthor est vite devenu l’ami le plus fiable au Rahn. Il était de prouver une rencontre historique, pour Wiligut (en utilisant le nom Weisthor) a ensuite rejoint les SS en 1933 et a été promu au grade de général de brigade en 1936, date à laquelle il est devenu un conseiller de Heinrich Himmler sur les questions occultes, devenant plus tard mieux connu dans les cercles intérieurs des sociétés secrètes allemandes  comme étant le  «Raspoutine» de Himmler.

C’est dans ce maelström bizarre d’idées néo-nazies marchait Otto Rahn, peu conscient du fait que les Cathares qu’il étudiait avaient déjà été vérifiés par les plus grands chercheurs scientifiques nationaux-socialistes autant  que chez  les auteurs de nombreuses coutumes reliées aux  nazis. En effet, Hitler était si intéressé par les traditions et les légendes du Moyen Age qu’il avait déjà engagé comme  compositeur et chercheur, Carl Orff à parcourir les monastères médiévaux d’Europe, pour recueillir les chants anciens et des airs folkloriques. Un amalgame de ce matériel est devenu plus tard connu comme le célèbre Carmina Burana et a été joué à presque chaque rallye.

On peut seulement imaginer la réponse quand, à travers la connexion de son ami Weisthor avec Himmler, Otto Rahn a annoncé qu’il était à l’emplacement du Saint Graal, les trésors du temple de Salomon et de  l’Arche d’Alliance , des reliques sacrées  uniques . Himmler et Cie doivent avoir été sur la lune de Hörbiger!

Les dossiers montrent que Himmler et, éventuellement, la Société de Thulé ont accepté de financer le voyage de Otto Rahn au Languedoc en 1931, où il est resté dans le village de Lavelanet. Sur ce, il voyage, il a évidemment lui-même convaincu que Montségur était en effet le Monsalvat de la Légende Parzifal. Bien qu’il ait découvert divers systèmes de grottes, il n’avait pas encore trouvé de trésor. Néanmoins, il reste convaincu qu’il était sur la bonne piste. Il avait également constaté, au fond de la grotte, des dessins sur la surface de la roche représentant Templiers, dont un qui présentait un lance – peut-être la lance de Longinus, la Lance du Destin! Le résultat de son incursion précoce dans Montségur fut sa première Croisade du livre contre le Graal publié en 1933.

Dans ce document, Rahn a retracé l’histoire de ce qu’il a accompli jusqu’à présent et émis l’hypothèse que la preuve démontrait qu’il y avait deux Grails – une Coupe d’Emeraude et une tablette de pierre. Ce dernier artefact aurait été inscrit avec runes par une race de surhommes pré-allemandes qui avaient atteint la connaissance ultime de la «loi de la vie». Ils représentaient «la grande tradition» qui n’était valable que pour certaines personnes, une théorie qui liait avec la légende allemande et les croyances de la Société de Thulé que le Grand Nord a été habitée par les Hyperboréens super course. Inutile de dire que le livre a trouvé un public prêt à l’emploi à Hitler, Rosenberg, Hess, Dietrich Ekhart, Himmler et d’autres personnes conduisant!

Dans une lettre écrite à Weisthor en Septembre 1935 Otto Rahn informé son ami qu’il se trouvait à un endroit où il avait des raisons de croire que le Graal pourrait être trouvée, et que Weisthor doit garder le secret de la matière à l’exception de mentionner à Himmler. Ainsi, au cours des prochaines années, Otto Rahn, historien et philologue, est devenue inextricablement impliqué dans la hiérarchie du parti nazi, rencontre avec Himmler, Alfred Rosenberg et Wolfram Sievers. Il n’a peut-être pas rendu compte que Adolf Hitler avait été un étudiant avide de l’occulte depuis sa jeunesse, et que l’obsession du Führer engloutir sa quête.

Otto Rahn retourné dans la région de Montségur pendant une courte période en 1937, mais à cette époque les grondements inquiétants d’une guerre imminente pourrait se faire sentir dans toute l’Europe. Himmler, quant à lui, avait rencontré le Dr Hermann Wirth, qui lui a donné l’idée de créer une unité de recherche de l’histoire allemande.

Ce fut le Deutsches Ahnenerbe, une société, qui est devenue totalement dépendante du soutien de la SS. Rahn et Weisthor continué à travailler sur différents projets, mais n’ayant pas reçu de nouvelles affectations de Himmler pour les quatre années précédentes, il était évident que Rahn était considéré comme indigne de confiance car il n’était pas un membre de la SS. Rahn a remédié à la surveillance en rejoignant la SS Black Order en privé le 12 Mars 1936. Comme par magie, une fois qu’il avait rejoint le club SS, les portes ont commencé à s’ouvrir à Rahn en privé. Le 20 Avril 1936, il a été promu au grade de sergent, sans avoir jamais été un caporal. Presque aussitôt, il a reçu une mission de procéder à une enquête sur l’Islande pour enquêter sur le terrain,sur le site éventuel  de l’Hyperborée.

La montée de Rahn dans les rangs n’était rien de moins que spectaculaire. Il a fait le cours technique d’officier  le 30 Janvier 1937 et 2nd Lieutenant de l’Ordre Noir de 20 Avril 1937. Son ascension s’est poursuivie jusqu’au 1er Septembre, 1938 quand il a été promu le 1er lieutenant.  son deuxième livre ,”Les Courtisans de Lucifer” a été publié en 1936 et est rapidement devenu la bible du Parti national-socialiste.

Pendant ce temps Himmler avait choisi château  de Wewelsburg en Bavière pour être la future maison de la Lance de  Longinus , le Saint Graal et les autres trésors du Temple de Salomon, dont Otto Rahn avait parlé. Cependant, il était trop dangereux de se déplacer en temps de paix. Mieux vaut attendre la prochaine guerre avec la France. En  1937,une  expédition de Rahn au Languedoc est donc pensée pour avoir été juste pour s’assurer que le cache était resté inexploré par quelqu’un d’autre.

Le 9 Juin 1938, Rahn a demandé et obtenu un congé pour écrire la suite de courtisans de Lucifer. A partir de ce moment, sa vie a pris un tournant inattendu pour le pire. Il avait fait son point de vue privé et public – qu’il était opposé à la guerre et que la place, il a pensé Allemagne, puis en Europe devrait se convertir à catharisme! Opposition à la prochaine guerre était une trahison.

Le 28 Février 1939, Otto Rahn a écrit une lettre de démission au Gruppenführer Karl Wolff, chef d’état-major personnel de Himmler, parlant de «motifs graves» pour sa démission qu’il dirait au Reichsführer en personne lors de sa prochaine visite à Berlin.

Les circonstances de la “nature extrêmement grave” à laquelle se réfère Rahn, et qui ne pourrait être transmise par lettre,comme  avoir une bague de mauvais augure. Personne ne sait vraiment la portée du dilemme  auquel  Rahn était confronté, mais il semble raisonnable de conclure qu’il était dans une vie  proche  de  la mort …une  situation du genre ou, pire encore, dans une position de “mort contre la mort ” (traduction libre d’une expression allemande) qui n’a laissé  au temps que la méthode soit décidée.

Le fameux «Renard du désert», le feld-maréchal Erwin Rommel, était  sur le point de subir le même sort à une date un peu plus tardive. Son choix s’est porté sur le suicide dans l’honneur ou à l’exécution ignominieuse.

La raison de l’embarras de Rahn laisse une large place à la spéculation. Sa facilité de changer ses opinions politiques et sa vision d’un nouvel ordre mondial, avec l’Allemagne comme son chef, ont été certainement à l’unisson avec l’ambition de Himmler comme exprimée dans ces paroles:

“Après la guerre, nous allons vraiment construire notre Ordre, cette ordonnance à laquelle nous donnait ses principes les plus importants dix ans avant la guerre. Nous allons continuer, nous les vétérans, depuis une vingtaine d’années après la guerre, alors que la tradition peut être établie, une tradition qui va durer trente, trente-cinq ou quarante ans, toute une génération. Ensuite, notre Ordre sera jeune et forte, révolutionnaire et actif, dans sa mars à l’avenir. Il sera en mesure de s’acquitter de son devoir et de fournir les peuples germaniques avec une élite. Cette élite va unir ce peuple et  l’ensemble de l’Europe.”

Même la charge de s’opposer à l’effort de guerre aurait pu facilement être annulée par Himmler si Rahn avait accepté de cesser et de s’abstenir. Ainsi, on se retrouve avec le sentiment inconfortable et difficile à ébranler que quelque chose d’autre était impliquée. La dernière question semble tourner autour des découvertes que Rahn a fait au cours de ses voyages dans le Languedoc. Etait-il un homme qui en savait trop, ou était-il un homme qui avait révélé trop peu sur les résultats de sa recherche – pour les trésors de Salomon et de la Coupe d’Emeraude. Personne ne saura jamais la réponse à cette question. Ce que nous savons, c’est que Rahn a rapidement reçu une réponse favorable à sa demande de décharge de la SS.

Il existe des preuves fragmentaires que Rahn a tenté de lui sauver la vie un jour au cours de cette période en proposant qu’il soit autorisé à retourner au Languedoc et vivre ses jours dans la solitude des montagnes des Pyrénées. Sa demande a été rejetée et il a été laissé avec les deux options restantes, la mort par suicide ou la mort par exécution

Le 13 Mars 1939 Otto Rahn a disparu.

Le 18 mai 1939, l’avis de décès suivant est paru dans l’édition de Berlin de la “Völkischer Beobachter”:

“Otto Rahn mort!”

Funérailles d'Otto Rahn,1939
Funérailles d’Otto Rahn,1939

Cependant l’histoire du Graal ne se termine pas avec la mort d’Otto Rahn. Bien que la France était occupée par les Allemands en Juin 1940 Himmler n’a fait aucune tentative pour récupérer le Graal Otto Rahn de Montségur. Au lieu de cela, les expéditions de fouilles ont été envoyés par l’Ahnenerbe à d’autres territoires où les forces nazies avaient envahi, et l’autre pour le Tibet à la recherche des origines de la race aryenne.

Himmler peut-être pensé que, avec l’emplacement du trésor décrit raisonnablement, il n’y avait aucune raison de se dépêcher. Pourquoi ne pas attendre jusqu’à ce que toute la France était occupée – les choses seraient encore plus facile ensuite. Cependant, la fin de 1942, les forces nazies avaient reçu plusieurs revers de fortune, y compris l’assurance-emploi Alamein, et en Tchécoslovaquie, l’assassinat de Heydrich. Les forces alliées ont envahi l’Europe et tout à coup le temps était compté pour récupérer le trésor. Donc, en Juin 1943 une réunion d’experts était à Montségur et divers autres cachettes possibles dans la région du Languedoc, dont Rennes-Ie-Château.

Ces experts consistaient en des historiens, des archéologues et des géologues. En l’occurrence, toutes les équipes sont venus les mains vides. Himmler a été laissé avec peu de possibilités à envisager. Le trésor avait existé ou pas? Si elle existait, puis a été caché dans la région de Montségur et si tel était le cas, s’il avait été situé par Otto Rahn? La seule chose que la pensée Himmler a sonné vrai, c’est que Otto Rahn avait déterminé l’emplacement approximatif du trésor et sur la base de cette conviction, il a conclu que le trésor doit se trouver dans un endroit qui ne Otto Rahn, ni ses équipes d’experts avaient trouvé. Otto Rahn, bien sûr, ne pouvait être consulté parce qu’il avait déjà eu son «accident» et Himmler se rendit compte qu’il avait besoin d’une approche différente du problème et quelqu’un pour attaquer latéralement au lieu de front. Un homme est venu à l’esprit – le colonel SS Otto Skorzeny.

Skorzeny avait la réputation d’être l’un vrai soldat, celui qui, s’il accepte une mission, habituellement jamais échoué. Skorzeny avait une approche unique pour la résolution de problèmes. Il avait été un ingénieur de profession et était également un linguiste doué. Il bondit à la célébrité en réalisant le succès, l’audace sommet de la montagne sauvetage de Mussolini à la fin de la guerre – un exploit qui a été considéré comme impossible. En effet, tel était son audace qu’à plusieurs reprises, il avait rencontré David Stirling, fondateur du Special Air Service britannique pour le café dans différentes villes européennes, alors que la guerre battait son plein.

Skorzeny avait aussi un arrière-plan du renseignement, ayant travaillé pour l’amiral Canaris, chef du renseignement allemand et avait parfois reçu ses ordres directement de Himmler. Du 20 Avril 1942, il avait été promu en tant que «chef des troupes spéciales de l’Allemagne», opérant à partir d’un pavillon de chasse à Friendenthal en Bavière. C’est ainsi que en Février 1944, après plusieurs autres missions, Skorzeny reçu un appel de Himmler à récupérer le trésor de Montségur.

Après avoir fait les plans et instructions à ses hommes, Otto Skorzeny nécessaires avec un petit commando est arrivé dans le Languedoc et installé un camp de base à Montségur. Ils ont passé les prochains jours reconnaissances de la zone, faisant plusieurs découvertes intéressantes, mais aucun qui a révélé le trésor. Skorzeny a alors décidé d’ignorer les endroits où Otto Rahn avait signalés et se concentrer sur la logique et les cachettes improbables qui ne serait pas facilement se présenter.

Comme château de Montségur se trouve au sommet d’une crête de montagne accessible seulement sur trois côtés, avec un pic de plusieurs milliers de pieds de l’autre, Skorzeny concentrée au bord du précipice impossible de la roche. Après la descente en rappel en bas de la paroi rocheuse verticale, il a cherché et trouvé des preuves d’anciennes pistes menant loin du pied de la montagne. En suivant ces derniers, il finit par découvrir une grotte murée, qui, une fois brisée ouverte, aurait révélé le trésor. Selon La Coupe Emerald – Arche d’Or, par le colonel Howard Buechner, Skorzeny a ensuite envoyé un message (probablement par radio) au siège de Himmler à Berlin:

[Signé] Scar

La réponse rapidement suivi:

Bien fait. Félicitations. Regarder le ciel demain à midi. Attendre notre arrivée.
[Signé Reichsführer – SS]

Selon Buechner, Skorzeny avait involontairement découvert le trésor à la veille du 700e anniversaire de la chute de Montségur (16 Mars, 1944), et a été surpris de rencontrer un grand rassemblement de descendants cathares, en route pour le château de rendre hommage à leurs ancêtres. Le chiffre 700 est doublement important de ces Cathares des derniers jours pour une ancienne prophétie avait prédit: – “A la fin de 700 ans, le laurier sera vert une fois de plus.”

Quelle que soit cette phrase étrange signifiait en réalité, un groupe inhabituel s’était avéré pour l’anniversaire. Bien qu’ils aient demandé la permission d’aller au château du gouverneur militaire allemand de la région, et avait été refusé, ils ont néanmoins rassemblés au pied de la montagne, prêts pour la longue marche vers les ruines de la forteresse. A ce moment, comme par hasard aurait-il, Skorzeny et son petit groupe de commando tombé sur eux. Pendant un moment, tout doit avoir semblé perdu, mais Skorzeny, lorsqu’il est sollicité par les pèlerins pour son autorisation, ne voyait aucune raison de refuser le. C’est ainsi que le groupe est arrivé à la forteresse à  la mi-journée, juste au moment où Skorzeny  leur avait dit de “regarder le ciel”.

Probablement invisible par la foule, un avion allemand de haut vol, en utilisant un équipement “skywriting”, “peint” une énorme croix celtique dans le ciel. Pour Skorzeny, il a signalé que sa mission était presque terminée, mais pour les pèlerins à Montségur, un miracle s’était produit. Le lendemain, une délégation officielle comprenant des Reichsminister Alfred Rosenberg et le colonel Wolfram Sievers de l’Ahnenerbe est arrivé à féliciter Skorzeny.

Des dispositions furent prises pour que  les ingénieurs puissent être amené  à la cache du trésor et pour être ramené à la petite ville de Merkers, à 40 km de Berlin. Et ici, après qu’il a été catalogué par des membres triés sur le volet de l’Ahnenerbe, la plus grande partie a disparu dans diverses parties du Reich en ruine. Selon le colonel Howard Buechner, le catalogue des trésors inclus:
1. Des milliers de pièces d’or …

2. Des articles qui étaient soupçonnés de provenir du temple de Salomon, qui comprenait les plaques d’or et des fragments de bois qui avait jadis fait monter l’arche de Moïse … une table plaqué or, un chandelier à sept branches, une urne d’or, un personnel, une harpe, une épée, assiettes et vases d’or innombrables, de nombreuses petites clochettes d’or et un certain nombre de pierres précieuses et des pierres d’onyx, dont certaines portaient des inscriptions …

3. Douze tables de pierre portant des inscriptions runiques pré-dont aucun des experts ont pu lire. Ces éléments comprennent le Graal de pierre des Allemands et d’Otto Rahn.

4. Une belle Coupe argenté avec une base émeraude comme en ce qui semblait être de  jaspe. Trois plaques d’or sur la Coupe ont été inscrits avec le manuscrit cunéiforme dans une langue ancienne.

5. Un grand nombre d’objets religieux de divers types … croisements de différentes époques qui étaient de l’or ou de l’argent et ornés de perles et de pierres précieuses.

6. Les pierres précieuses en abondance dans toutes les formes et tailles

Une fois catalogué, beaucoup de pièces d’or ont été fondus et transformés en lingots puis les nazis ont commencé à disperser le trésor autour …et vers l’Allemagne.

le monde au cours des derniers jours de la guerre

La ville de Merkers est tombé à la 3e armée américaine du général George Patton. Ses hommes ont vite découvert les mines de sel à proximité où le trésor a été caché, ainsi que les montants dont ils récupéré peut donner une idée de la taille originale de la distance. Quand les généraux Dwight D. Eisenhower, Omar Bradley et Patton personnellement inspecté la mine:voici le compte officiel versé  plus tard aux  dossiers:

… 600 lingots d’or, 750 sacs de pièces d’or … de nombreux autres objets de valeur principalement sous la forme de papier-monnaie. La valeur estimée du trésor a été 250.000.000 $ (selon les normes de 1945, quand l’or se vendait à 35 $ l’once).

Cela bien sûr, seulement représenté la petite partie du trésor qui n’a pas été dispersés par le temps avant  l’arrivée des Américains. En effet, Buechner estime la valeur actuelle d’une journée pourrait être proche de 60 milliards de dollars!

Donc ce qui s’est passé au trésor des millénaires? Selon Buechner, les dossiers montrent que certains ont été expédiés en Antarctique (le Nouveau Reich en  Agharta) et d’autres parties de l’Amérique du Sud, tandis que certains ont été enterrés profondément sous la forteresse de Wewelsburg en Bavière et une boîte en bronze, contenant des documents importants ont été enterrés dans une  grotte secrète  sous le glacier Schleigleiss près du Col de montagne Zillertal en Bavière. Un dépôt final est pensé pour avoir été caché dans le complexe secrète sous le refuge de montagne  à Berchtesgarden ,la maison d’Hitler.

Les derniers enregistrements montrent que le trésor du Temple de Salomon a été expédiée depuis le château de Wewelsburg à Berchtesgarden en Mars 1945. Il a été transporté par camion jusqu’à l’Obersalzberg et rangé dans un ou plusieurs des nombreux souterrains qui criblent  la montagne. Là, il a été scellé dans des bunkers et placé sous le regard attentif continues d’un contingent de soldats SS. Lorsque les bunkers ont été explorées par les troupes du 101e., Division aéroportée US dans les premiers jours de mai 1945, ils ont trouvé des dispositions et des trésors en abondance, mais le trésor de Salomon avaient disparu.

Est-ce la dernière histoire qui nous sera donné afin  d’entrevoir la Lumière qui nous conduira vers le  Saint Graal et le trésor? Probablement pas, les experts ont estimé(dans les années ’70)  que le glacier Schleigleiss est dû livrer à son secret, …en 1995, après quoi, nous nous attendons que  la chasse pourrait  recommencer.

Un mot de prudence. Nous sommes redevables au  Co!onel H.Buechner pour son histoire d’Otto Rahn et les trésors de Montségur. Nous restons singulièrement impressionnés par la patience dont il a fait preuve dans l’attente jusqu’en 1991 de publier ce qui doit en théorie être la plus grande histoire de chasse au trésor de tous les temps. L’histoire a apparemment entrepris de nous encore, en un rien de Time Magazine, numéro. 43 daté Octobre 25th 1993, un article de Michael Walsh a été écrit sur les dépouilles de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et ne mentionne même pas le trésor du Temple de Salomon. Alors, qui devons-nous croire, Buechner ou Walsh?


Post Scriptum

Il existe une seconde histoire sur la mort et la disparition d’Otto Rahn…et la voici:

Otto Rahn était homosexuel.Il aurait eu une relation …ou sa conditon aurait embarrassé un haut dirigeant SS…en plus,il y avait un trésor à aller chercher.


Autres notes sur Otto Rahn

Dès son enfance, il est passionné par les mythes et les épopées germaniques.

Il ne reconnaissait pas ce christianisme, dans lequel il a pourtant grandi… alors, il s’est rapproché un peu plus chaque jour des traditions païennes, persuadé que ses ancêtres étaient païens et ses propres dieux hérétiques !

Il a fait ses études dans un collège et en 1922, il a commencé des études de droit…

Il s’intéressait aux troubadours comme Guyot de Provins, aux trouvères et aux minnesingers (minnesang)  comme Wolfram von Eschenbach.

En 1930, il s’est installé dans le Razès (vers Rennes-le-Château – dans l’Aude) pour étudier l’histoire du Catharisme et ses recherches l’ont mené à Montségur, un château qui avait été identifié comme étant le château du Graal dans le récit de Parzifal

Avec le soutien de la Comtesse Pujol et de son chauffeur, il a visité les sites les plus importants du Catharisme, il a raconté son parcours dans “Croisade contre le Graal – L’histoire des Albigeois”


Pour écrire ce livre, il s’est installé à Ussat-les-Bains (Ariège) et pour pouvoir vivre il a racheté l’Hôtel des Marronniers, cet achat a été un fiasco, il a accumulé des dettes qu’il remboursait avec les avances de son éditeur allemand.


Quand il a quitté cet endroit, il n’y est jamais revenu.

Otto Rahn a mené plusieurs expéditions en Ariège, il espérait trouver les origines de la légende de Parzifal de Wolfram von Eschenbach et il pensait qu’il pourrait récupérer le Graal, symbole païen.

Il a rencontré Antonin Gadal, Maurice Magre, Déodat Roché et la comtesse de Pujol-Murat

Son premier ouvrage n’a pas eu un très grand succès, mais …. il a attiré l’attention d’Himmler, un grand passionné depuis toujours par tout ce qui touchait à l’ésotérique.

Otto Rahn est entré dans la Schutzstaffel (SS) comme archéologue pour pouvoir effectuer des recherches sur le Catharisme.

Il a ensuite été incorporé directement à l’etat Major d’Himmler où  il a rencontré Karl Wolf, adjudant et “sacré personnage” .

Il a aussi connu  Karl Maria Wiligut qui travaillait sur les “forces psychologiques des souvenances cellulaires” (?)

Wiligut était le mentor secret d’Hitler,  il était surnommé le “Raspoutine d’Himmler”.

Il a écrit “Le secret des runes de Seyfried” et “le roi secret”, il a surtout été l’inventeur de tous les signes extérieurs païens du nazisme, il me semble être un homme mystérieux à souhait,  j’aurais sans doute redouté le  rencontre

Otto Rahn a progressé rapidement dans la hiérarchie, pour arriver au grade d’obersturmführer.

Il a finalement inspiré le film “Les aventuriers de l’arche perdue” mettant en vedette Harrison Ford.
