authors (detailed below) have claimed that a Vril Gesellschaft (Society)
existed in the Third Reich as the inner core of the Thule Society.No
verifiable evidence of the society's existence has ever been published.
1967 book "Aufbruch ins dritte Jahrtausend: von der Zukunft der
phantastischen Vernunft" by L. Pauwels and J. Bergier, published
in Switzerland, includes an account of the society. The
Vril information takes up about a tenth of the volume, the remainder
of which details other esoteric speculations, but the authors fail
to clearly explain whether this section is fact or fiction. New
publications appeared in the 1990s, by the German right-wing author
Jan Udo Holey, writing under penname Jan van Helsing.
Vril Society as described by these authors includes many elements
common to conspiracy theories:
masters (the members of the Vril society and their antagonist, the
Jewish World Conspiracy)
* An escape by Hitler and other Nazis from Berlin to the South Pole
* Flying saucers, secret Nazi inventions, and psychic channeling
* Aliens from Aldebaran It's claimed Karl Haushofer was the head
of the Society.
to these authors, the Vril Society was founded as "The All German
Society for Metaphysics" in 1921 to explore the origins of the Aryan
race. It was formed by a group of female psychic mediums led by
the Thule Gesellschaft medium Maria Orsitsch (Orsic) of Zagreb,
who claimed to have received communication from Aryan aliens living
on Alpha Tauri, in the Aldebaran system. Allegedly, these aliens
had visited Earth and settled in Sumeria, and the word Vril was
formed from the ancient Sumerian word "Vri-Il" ("like god"). A second
medium was known only as Sigrun, a name etymologically related to
Sigrune, a Valkyrie and one of Wotan's nine daughters in Norse legend.
Society allegedly taught concentration exercises designed to awaken
the forces of Vril, and their main goal was to achieve Raumflug
(Spaceflight) to reach Aldebaran. To achieve this, the Vril Society
joined the Thule Gesellschaft and DHvSS (Men of the Black Stone)
to fund an ambitious program involving an inter-dimensional flight
machine based on psychic revelations from the Aldebaran aliens.
1922, Thule and Vril constructed Germany's first flight disc, the
JFM (Jenseitsflugmaschine) or "Other World Flight Machine", in Munich,
for channeled flight testing that lasted two years. The project
was led by W.O. Schumann of the Technical University of Munich,
but the project was halted in 1924 with the machine dismantled and
shipped to Messerschmitt's Augsburg facility, where it was stored
for future research.Professor Schumann developed a levitation unit
from the research, which was called the Schumann-Munich or SM-Levitator.
of the Vril Society are said to have included Adolf Hitler, Alfred
Rosenberg, Heinrich Himmler, Hermann Göring, and Hitler's personal
physician, Dr. Theodor Morell. These were original members of the
Thule Society which supposedly joined Vril in 1919. The NSDAP (Nazi
Party) was created by Thule in 1920, one year later. Dr. Krohn,
who created the Nazi flag, was also a Thulist.
Hitler in power in 1933, both Thule and Vril Gesellschafts allegedly
received official state backing for continued disc development programs
aimed at both spaceflight and possibly a war machine.
new RFZ (Rundflugzeug) or "Round Aircraft" series began in 1937,
after Vril bought the fallow land surrounding the Arado-Brandenburg
aircraft facility. RFZ discs 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 were tested there
under Vril supervision while Thule was helped by special SS technical
branch unit E-IV, which was tasked with developing alternative energies.
Thule worked on a separate disc at a secret location in NW Germany
referred to as Hauneburg from 1935 on. As such their product was
known as the H-Gerät (Hauneburg Device) but this was shortened to
Haunebu in 1939 once the disc's Triebwerk (Thrustwork) engine was
perfected. Haunebu I was briefly designated as RFZ-5 when Thule
moved from Hauneburg to Arado-Brandenburg.
Thule Triebwerk was a revolutionary EMG (electro-magnetic-gravitic)
engine also known as a Tachyonator 7. It used a modified Hans Coler
Magnetstromapparat (a gravitic free-energy battery) turned into
a converter that was coupled to a Van De Graaf band generator and
a Marconi dynamo (spinning tank of heated mercury). Once activated,
the Triebwerk produced strong rotating EMG fields that affected
gravity. The rotating fields also turned the dynamo, creating a
reduction of mass at incredible Rpms.
also developed its own Triebwerk by 1941 with the RFZ-7, which was
re-designated Vril-1 Jäger (Hunter).
1941 Hitler forbade secret societies, so both Thule and Vril were
documented under the SS E-IV unit. Vril also became secretly known
as "Die Kette" - "The Chain", which refers to the mental links between
their members. Vril had strong contacts with Canaris of the Abwehr,
the Ahnenerbe (SS occult bureau), and worked with the engineers
the Thule and Vril discs were built from 1939-1945. Thule produced
the Haunebu I-III series of large discs while the Vril series were
more concerned with resuming channeled flight. By 1944, construction
of a Vril 7 Geist (Ghost) channeled flight disc was achieved, as
well as a huge 139 meter long cylindrical mothership called the
Andromeda-Gerät (Andromeda Device).
unit named Sonderbüro (Special Bureau) 13 was created by the Luftwaffe
to "officially" investigate strange aerial phenomena over the Reich
but "unofficially" was created to cover-up these reports of flight
discs and flying cigars. In September 1944 a ME-262 jet pilot caught
site of one of the Andromeda craft and reported it. Sonderbüro 13
immediately tried to feign ignorance of such a device.
as the Allies advanced further into the Reich, Vril planned to evacuate
its technology to bases outside of Europe, especially to a secret
Antarctic base - Base 211, while their own personal plan was to
evacuate their mediums to the stars by channeled flight of the Andromeda.
They left in March 1945 and were never found again.
the self-proclaimed government-in-exile of Sealand under Johannes
W.F. Seiger promotes Vril free energy and also has started linking
to Vril disc aircraft and history. This gives some weight to allegations,
that the Seiger group has contact to Neonazis, especially the self-proclaimed
Brodsky at Brandenburg Airfield 1938
