Adolf Hitler
He was National Socialist Germany’s Fuhrer and he wrote a brilliant book, Mein Kampf, beyond that, much of what is said of him is fabricated or distorted. He appears to have been a good man from a solid, lower-middle class background. He loved his family, his church, and his people. He had a very strong, independent nature and, although no loner, he did not need others to validate his views or sense of self. He is the main reason this society exists and prospers.

Savitri Devi
Although mystical in her conception of National Socialism, and often classified as an advocate of so-called Nazi mysticism, Savitri Devi saw the new political doctrine as a practical faith without the requirement of metaphysics. Her writings have become a major influence in the study of esoteric Hitlerism.

James Larratt Battersby
Feb. 5, 1907 to September 14-29, 1955*

James “Jim” Larratt Battersby’s father was James Johnson Battersby (1875–1949) a British hat manufacturer. They owned a hat-making company that was one of Britain’s largest manufacturers. It was established in 1895 in Stockport, Greater Manchester, England. At one time, the company employed 1000 workers and would produce 12,000 hats per week.

In 1935, James Battersby married Cynthia Helene Metcalfe and they had one child. Jim was a director of the family hat-making business for 13 years but was forced to retire because of his political activities. He could have lived a quiet and comfortable life but knew that the survival of Europeans was at risk.

Battersby joined Sir Oswald Mosley and his British Union of Fascists and National Socialists (BUFNS) to campaign for peace with Germany. He spoke with urgency at public meetings to support Lancashire’s traditional cotton industries and told the workers that their jobs were threatened by cheap imports produced in Asia and financed by Jewish money.
Jim was a British fascist who was interned June 1940 during the war. During his detention on the Isle of Man, he became a close friend with Thomas Guillaume St. Barbe Baker M.C. (Captain Thomas Baker) who believed that Hitler was the Second Coming of Christ the Savior.  Baker was affiliated with many fascist movements before the war and was an independent National Socialist speaker.  Like Battersby, Baker was a member of the Militant Christian Patriots.  Battersby took Baker’s views quite seriously and they contributed to his religious development. In 1947, he founded The League of Christian Reformers and published a magazine called Kingdom Herald. He also wrote The Holy Book of Adolf Hitler and the book And The Bishop Said Amen.

It 1955, it was written in England’s newspapers that Battersby committed suicide by jumping into the paddles of the Mersey ferry. It is said that a suicide note was found on his body. On it was written, “Through the sacrifice of the Aryan martyrs the world victory is assured. Heil Hitler.”
*James was last seen on the September14th and his body was found on the 29th.




Matt Koehl
January 22, 1935 to October 10, 2014

MATTHIAS (MATT) KOEHL, JR. was born in Milwaukee, the son of ethnic German parents (his father an immigrant from Hungary). He was from a Christian family and his mother taught Sunday school. He stopped attending church at age 16.

As a young man, Matt was involved with the National Renaissance Party, then the National States’ Rights Party, before joining George Lincoln Rockwell’s organization in 1960. He was an author, propagandist, and the leader of the New Order, a quasi-religious National Socialist organization. Koehl was an activist and in the 1950s, he joined the National Renaissance Party, the United White Party and the National States Rights Party (NSRP), before he eventually joined the American Nazi Party in 1960.

It was there, in the NSRP, that Koehl met George Lincoln Rockwell. In 1963, Koehl relocated to the national office in Virginia, where he worked as the party’s national secretary.

Matt Koehl succeeded George Lincoln Rockwell as Commander of the National Socialist White People’s Party after Rockwell’s assassination in August 1967. Dr. William Pierce of the NSWPP, wrote a memorandum to Koehl dated Aug. 5, 1970. In it he expresses concerns that the party was becoming too insular and was not making progress.

At the end of 1982, Koehl renamed the NSWPP as New Order, and promoted a mystical national socialism influenced by Savitri Devi and Miguel Serrano. His right-hand man in the NSWPP and New Order was Martin Kerr, assistant editor of Heritage and Destiny.

Koehl wrote several books including Adolf Hitler: German Nationalist or Aryan Racialist, Faith of the Future and The Good Society. He died from cancer during the night of October 9th and 10th.





March, 23, 1868 to December 26, 1923

JOHANN DIETRICH ECKART was born in the Bavarian village of Neumarkt. His father, Christian Eckart, was a lawyer and his mother, Anna, was a typical housewife and mother who gave birth to four children. She died when Dietrich was ten years old. The family moved to Nürnberg where he enrolled in the Latin School (grammar school) in Schwabach. In 1885, Dietrich transferred to a school in Regensburg and three years later his first poem was printed in the local newspaper. He attended the University of Erlangen as a medical student but was forced to withdraw upon contracting a serious childhood illness. His doctor prescribed morphine as a painkiller. This later developed into an addiction and he did not finish school.

Dietrich Eckart wrote articles for a local Dietkirchen paper including an essay entitled “A Question on Our Future” written in 1894, which showed that he had an avid interest in politics while still of college age. Eckart also became a music critic for the Bayruther Briefe and wrote essays on the Wagnerfest. He achieved renown as a witty humorist too.

When his father passed away in 1895, Dietrich inherited a fair sum of money which he used to invest in a home in Regensburg. There he entertained many political and artistic companions, and wrote his first published play entitled Froschkönig. It was based on the fairy tale of the frog prince. Eckart was an admirer of both Arthur Schopenhauer and Richard Wagner, and the play reflects this influence.
On September 15, 1913, Eckart had taken a widow, Rose Marx, for his wife. Finding Berlin hostile towards his work, he travelled in the spring of 1915 to Bad Blakenburg. Here his brother-in-law, Dr. Paul Wiedeburg, operated a sanatorium. Eckart found the place serene and perfect for his work. He not only found peace of mind, but also a willing audience for his plays. Patients and guests acted out scenes while he directed and rewrote. He busied himself in these experiments and remained at the sanatorium for a year and then returned to Berlin.

Dietrich Eckart’s years in Berlin, much like Hitler’s years in Vienna, brought him into contact with many Jews. He slowly evolved an anti-Jewish view. Well educated and a skillful orator, he became known as a so-called Judenspezialist. He was one of the first members of the Fichte Bund, founded in 1914; and he contributed to Theodor Fritsch’s anti-Jewish paper, Der Hammer. He co-founded a short-lived paper titled Unser Vaterland in 1915 after becoming convinced that there was a Jewish attempt at world domination. At this time he wrote to a close friend:

To me it appears that the thing so disastrous for our nation, an attack that one
can do practically nothing about, is the demonic thirst for power by the Jews who tolerate no other leadership but their own, but as long as they have not reached it, they fight with all their strength to bring about disorder and chaos.

Arthur Schopenhauer was Eckart’s favorite philosopher, and he took many of his ideas from his work such as Weltanschauung (The World as Will and Idea). He explained he saw the world in terms of ‘good’ and ‘evil,’with the German and Jew representing opposites. This idea was a common thread which ran through the ‘folkish’ movement, but with erudite quotes from Schopenhauer and others, Eckart was a prime mover of this belief. In short, he saw two impulses inherent in man, ‘world-affirmation’ and ‘world-denial.’ World-affirmation meant a complete surrender or submission to one’s baser, all-too-human instincts; whether it be sensual, decadent, or materialistic. World-denial was its counterweight, the constant striving for something more than earthly desires, the Faustian Wanderlust which could not be explained, only felt. Eckart thought man must have an occasional respite from his inner strivings, but that a firm balance must be kept between the two extremes. Later he described it thusly:

Both directions of the will are important to the maintenance of life as constant world-denial would, so it would seem, redeem the world, but in fact would destroy it as would absolute world-affirmation. It would deprive the world of the mental-spiritual strength without which it could not exist.
Rather than attack the Jew on a religious or biological basis as most anti-Jewish people before him, Eckart placed importance on the spiritual aspects. He felt every man had some ‘Jewishness’ within him, and that one’s first priority was to repress and purge this spirit. For perhaps the first time blame was laid on everyone’s foibles instead of on ‘the Jew’ alone. This was a revolutionary, if not refreshing, approach to the ‘problem,’ and Eckart was articulate enough to advance it successfully. It can be found in Point 24 of the NSDAP Official Program.

With the establishment of the Bolshevik dictatorship in Russia, Eckart focused his efforts on anti-Marxist propaganda. In November of 1918, the World War was lost by Germany and in Munich the “Red Republic” of Kurt Eisner arose. Ironically, Munich was a main destination and refugee center for White Russians fleeing Russia. The city was a hotbed of pro and anti-Communist agitation. Among the mass of refugees was a young Balt, Alfred Rosenberg, who met Eckart a short time later.

The next month, on December 7, 1918, Eckart and Rosenberg founded their nationalistic and anti-Jewish propaganda sheet entitled Auf Gut Deutsch, “In Plain German”. Planned as a weekly, it was sixteen pages in length and cost fifty Pfennigs. Double issues of 32 pages were sometimes printed, and cost one mark. Eckart put his own finances into the printing and distributed it personally. He printed his Lorenzaccio drama and numbered it “Issues 15-29.” Even multiple-numbering could not keep the magazine on a regular delivery basis, so Eckart felt obligated to send his subscribers other pamphlets and literature as compensation. Thule’s Münchner Beobachter, Fritsche’s Hammer, Sturm from Hannover, and a cheap edition of Arthur Dinter’s The Sin Against Blood, were among those anti-Jewish works mailed. Eckart wrote that the tormentor of the German people is international finance, a financial militarism. On God’s earth there is no more cold bloodedness or lies than those which hide behind the invisible empire of global economics. They lack scruples which defies description and even a simple knowledge of which would chill one’s bones. The furtive Princes of Gold mix their pernicious brew, which makes mankind not only serve them, but crazy and blind enough to mistake evil for good and good for evil. They are a Hydra sucking up millions of our peoples’ savings through many banks, while fattening themselves with ever-increasing influence. Go ahead and put your last dime down, what kind of interest do you get for it? A trifle!

In late 1919, probably December, the Deitrich Eckart met young Adolf Hitler. He quickly realized Hitler’s potential as a speaker and leader. He proclaimed: “There is the coming man of Germany of whom the world will someday speak!” This prophetic remark was made at a time when Hitler was unknown and not taken seriously by anyone outside of his inner circle of supporters. Through Eckart, Hitler met not only local Bavarian supporters but important figures such as Ludendorff, Kapp, Röhm, Hess, Rosenberg, Ritter von Epp, the Wagner family, and Houston Stewart Chamberlain.

Eckart’s political activities kept him away from home so much that in March of 1921, his wife, Rose, was granted a divorce. After eight years of controversy surrounding her husband’s views and actions, she had had enough.

In July 1921, the so-called “summer crisis” of the Nazi Party took place. Lasting six weeks, it grew out of a personality struggle between party founder Drexler and Adolf Hitler. The Führer resigned and then rejoined three days later when his demands were met by the executive committee. This was a crucial test for Hitler, one he could not afford to lose if he were to be unchallenged as Party leader in the future. Eckart’s role was decisive. Munich police reports state, “The dispute was finally smoothed over by the mediation of Dietrich Eckart.”

During the remaining two years of his life, Eckart’s influence on Hitler and the growing Nazi Party began to wane. It was no longer a small circle of comrades meeting in an obscure beer hall, but a multi-faceted party with thousands of members and many local units. Alfred Rosenberg took over the editorship of the Völkischer Beobachter in 1922, though Eckart continued to write regularly for it.
Eckart’s health suffered from over drinking and his almost absolute dependence on morphine but he helped the Party when he could. On April 12, 1922, he wrote a highly critical attack on German President Frederick Ebert entitled “Comrade Ebert in the Next World.” This humorous poetry, with illustrations, made Ebert out as a tool of world Jewry and not fit for either heaven or hell.

A warrant for Eckart’s arrest was issued by the Leipzig courts, and he went to Berchtesgaden. There, in the Vorderbrandhaus on Obersalzburg, he remained for some six months. He was charmed by the mountains and vowed to someday build his own retreat there. It was built during the Third Reich about ten kilometers from Eckart’s hut.

Eckart pleaded for discharge but his request was in vain. A few days later he was transferred again to Landsberg-am-Lech with Hitler and the others. His condition deteriorating steadily, prison authorities finally relented and set him free on December 20th. He was first driven to Munich, where he stayed overnight with friends.

On December 22nd, 1923, Dietrich arrived in the small village of Berchtesgaden and was put up by friends. He appeared tired but made no complaints and said he looked forward to Christmas and quietude. While residing at the home of the Pfnuer family, he died of heart failure just six days after gaining freedom.

Four days later, Dietrich Eckart was laid to rest in the small cemetery in Berchtesgaden. Police from outlying districts were brought into the village, in expectation of trouble; but a raging snowstorm kept the attendance down to about fifty loyal friends and comrades. Some short speeches were made, and the burial went without incident. Hitler and the others were not present as they were still in prison.
In December 1933, the first Dietrich Eckart Prize for Literature was awarded by the Hitler regime; an award of five thousand marks. His songs and slogans became virtual hymns in the Third Reich. His last play, Lorenzaccio, perhaps his finest effort, was
completed in 1918. The tragedy was never performed during his lifetime. It was first staged in the Leipzig Stadttheater on October 7, 1933, ten years after his death.

In 1936, the Dietrich Eckart Open Air Theatre was dedicated simultaneously with the Berlin Olympic stadium. Adolf Hitler never forgot his ‘fatherly friend’. But Hitler’s gratitude can best be recognized by the often overlooked last sentence, the dedication of Mein Kampf:

And among them I want also to count that man, one of the best, who devoted his life to the awakening of his, our people, in his writing and his thoughts and finally in his deeds.





Miguel Serrano
September 10, 1917 to February 28, 2009

Miguel Joaquin Diego del Carmen Serrano was born to a wealthy Chilean family of European descent. On his maternal line, he was descended from the countesses of Sierra Bella. His mother, Berta Fernández Fernández, died when Serrano was five years old, and his father, Diego Serrano Manterola, died three years later. Following this, Miguel’s grandmother raised him. Miguel was highly educated and an accomplished writer. He became a Chilean diplomat, writer, and mystic.

Miguel aligned himself with the National Socialist Movement in Chile and actively campaigned in support of Germany during the Second World War. After the war, Serrano termed his philosophy “Esoteric Hitlerism”, which he described as a new religious. A faith “able to change the materialistic man of today into a new idealistic hero”, and it is, “much more than a religion: it is a way to transmute a hero into God.” Also, Miguel stated that Hitler did not commit suicide but went to Antarctica. Miguel wrote numerous books including Adolf Hitler: The Last Avatar, The Golden Thread: Esoteric Hitlerism, and The Serpent of Paradise. Miguel Serrano died February 28, 2009 after suffering a stroke in his apartment in the Santa Lucia Hill sector of the capital, Santiago.




George Lincoln Rockwell
March 9, 1918 to August 25, 1967

George Lincoln Rockwell was born in Bloomington, Illinois, the home of his maternal grandfather on March 9, 1918. His father was a very successful headline comedian George (Doc) Lovejoy Rockwell from 1912 until about 1935.  His mother was Canadian, Claire Rockwell (Schade). His ancestors were German, French, English and Scottish, numbering among them many Revolutionary War figures, back to Marie Antoinette, the French queen.

Rockwell was in Bloomington only until he was old enough to get out of the hospital, when he was taken on the vaudeville circuit by his parents. He then spent some time in New Jersey, New York and California, but most of the time in Boothay Harbor, Maine.
He attended Hebron Academy, a prep school near Lewiston, Maine, after which he entered Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, majoring in philosophy.

In college, Rockwell enjoyed and did well in science and other objective courses, but fought blindly and instinctively against the “sociology” and other similar departments which, unknown to him, were then preaching the Marxist environmentalism and egalitarianism, which have played such havoc with our human, biological sciences.

Leaving Brown in the middle of his junior year, when it became obvious that the US would get into World War II, Rockwell enlisted as a Seaman in the United States Navy in Boston, Massachusetts. By the entrance of the US into World War II on December 7, 1941, he had entered Naval Aviation, and became a cruiser and battleship scout pilot and a fighter pilot. He served aboard the USS Omaha in the South Atlantic and off North Africa during the invasion. He was then sent to the naval photographic school for pilots, and assigned to the USS Wasp and sent to the Pacific. He also became a commander of forward air control operations for Marine Corps assault troops. He was at Guadalcanal, Guam and other Pacific “hot spots.” At the end of World War II, he was commanding officer of a squadron in Hawaii, and had earned nine decorations.

Rockwell’s first marriage was to Judy Alutman in 1943, and they had three children.  When released from active duty, Rockwell attended Pratt Institute Art school in New York, working part time in advertising and commercial art. In 1948, while still at Pratt, he won first prize of $1,000 in the National Society of Illustrators competition for a full page newspaper ad for the American Cancer Society.  While still in the ready reserves as commanding officer of a squadron in Washington, DC, he launched a new magazine, U.S. Lady, for the wives of US servicemen.

In 1949, Rockwell founded the first big national advertising agency in the state of Maine. In 1950, Rockwell was recalled to duty as a lieutenant commander at the beginning of the Korean War. He moved to San Diego with his wife and three children, where he trained pilots in the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps.

Privately, during his time in San Diego, Rockwell became an advocate of Adolf Hitler and a supporter of Nazism. He was influenced by Senator Joseph McCarthy’s stance against communism. Rockwell supported General Douglas MacArthur’s candidacy for president of the United States. He adopted the corncob pipe, following MacArthur’s example. In 1951, he read the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and Hitler’s manifesto Mein Kampf.

In November 1952, Rockwell was transferred to Iceland, where he became a Grumman F8F Bearcat pilot and attained the rank of commander. Because families were not permitted to be with American service personnel stationed there, his wife and children stayed with her mother in Barrington, Rhode Island. His wife filed for divorce in 1953.

Rockwell attended a diplomatic party in Reykjavík where he met Margrét Þóra Hallgrímsson, the niece of Iceland’s ambassador to the United States. They were married on October 3, 1953, by Þóra’s uncle, the Bishop of Iceland. They spent their honeymoon in Berchtesgaden, Germany, where Hitler once owned the Berghof mountain retreat in the Bavarian Alps. They made a “pilgrimage” to Hitler’s Adlerhorst. Together they had three children: Hallgrímur, Margrét, and Evelyn Bentína.

For a number of years Rockwell tried to work with various right-wing organizations, all of whom believed, as he did for a while, that it was necessary to disguise one’s admiration for Adolf Hitler and National Socialism.

Finally disgusted with the emptiness, the weakness, the hypocrisy and especially the cowardice of the so-called “conservatives,” Rockwell, determined to attack at last, flew the Swastika banner which came so close to saving Western Civilization and the White race.  He explained to his horrified friends,

Since our Cause is fundamentally the truth, I do not see how we can win by lying or misrepresenting what we are for fear of the Jews. The only times in the hundred years of the rise of communism that this plague has actually ever been BEATEN, it was beaten not by ‘conservatives’, but by radicals and fighters whom the enemy calls ‘Nazis’ and ‘fascists’, and whom they really fear. Only in Germany, Spain and Italy has communism ever been conquered. We are damned fools to be afraid to follow the only examples that have ever worked!

He hung up a Nazi banner in front of his home and dared the Jews to do something about it. They and their dupes came in droves to “do something about it,” but Rockwell survived all the shootings, rocks and other Jewish “arguments.” The publicity gave him such a much needed platform from which to call the attention of his fellow Americans to the increasingly desperate situation of America and our great White family of people.

In 1957, Hallgrímsson’s father went to the U.S. to take his daughter back to Iceland because he had learned that Rockwell was “one of the most active racists in the United States.” She subsequently divorced Rockwell in 1961.

Speaking at colleges, at great city rallies and to private groups, Rockwell won a larger and larger circle of responsible Americans who began to realize that the old pray-talk-petition-and-stamp-licking societies will not save America and our White race. At Brown University, in 1966, he said:

I fought the Germans in Word War II and I hated them because I thought they were evil and wicked and trying to overthrow my country. Now I find out that they were Christians and patriots who were violently anti-Communist and they were fighting the Bolsheviks and the atheists. Everything that I’m against, they were fighting. So I went over there and stabbed them in the back. I helped kill Christians on behalf of Jews. You tell me what we gained out of World War Two except Israel and a bigger communist world. What the hell did I fight so hard for? What did I see all those guys get killed for? They told me I was saving Poland. Who’s got Poland now? And Hungary, and Romania, and Czechoslovakia and Korea and China and Cuba even? Adolf Hitler fought your fight. And I won’t stab him in the back.

In five short years, Rockwell had led the American Nazi Party from a tiny and scorned band of roughnecks willing to take to the streets to fight treason and race-mixing, to a Party with headquarters in Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles and most major cities.
Rockwell and his men fought street battles without end with communist and Jewish thugs who sought to silence them by force.  He and his comrades spent many a nights in jail, courtesy of hostile politicians and corrupt police officials. But throughout it all, Lincoln Rockwell’s warrior spirit of courage, integrity and heroic defiance was never broken.

Rockwell’s persistence finally paid off in 1966, when thousands of White men, women and youth in Chicago followed his leadership in a spontaneous uprising against efforts to integrate all-White working class neighborhoods. The uprising culminated in the now-famous White People’s March of Sept. 10, 1966, in which hundreds of ordinary Whites followed Rockwell’s leadership under the sign of the Swastika.

Tragically, on August 25, 1967, this authentic American hero fell beneath the bullets of a cowardly Marxist sneak-murderer, John Patler (formerly Yanacki Patsalos). Yet, although Rockwell’s body died on this black afternoon, his spirit lives on in the hearts and minds of White men and women everywhere who continue to draw strength and inspiration from his heroic example.
