Default Re: Mason/Nazi alliance?

Sorry monk, I've been busy. I'd say it was work, but that'd be a lie...I've been on vacation for a while now and I've been having as much fun as I can before I deploy overseas.

Well, back to the topic at hand. Here is some information on the Nazis and Freemasons:

Nazi Persecution of Freemasonry

The Annihilation of Freemasonry

Famous Anti-Masons

The Collapse of Freemasonry in Nazi Germany

Suppression of Freemasonry: Nazi Germany and occupied Europe

Holocaust Encyclopedia: Freemasonry

On Hitler’s rise to power, the ten Grand Lodges of Germany were dissolved.3 Many among the prominent dignitaries and members of the Order were sent to concentration camps. The Gestapo seized the membership lists of the Grand Lodges and looted their libraries and collections of Masonic objects. Much of this loot was then exhibited in an "Anti-Masonic Exposition" inaugurated in 1937 by Herr Dr. Joseph Goebbels in Munich. The Exposition included completely furnished Masonic temples


Hitler’s hatred of Freemasonry is clearly documented.5 In 1931 Nazi party officials were given a "Guide and Instructional Letter" that stated, "The natural hostility of the peasant against the Jews, and his hostility against the Freemason as a servant of the Jew, must be worked up to a frenzy." 6 On April 7, 1933, Hermann Goering—who once considered becoming a freemason—held an interview with Grand Master von Heeringen of the "Land" Grand Lodge of Germany, telling him there was no place for Freemasonry in Nazi Germany. 7 The Nazi Primer, the Official Handbook for the Schooling of Hitler Youth, attacked freemasons, marxists, and the Christian churches for their "mistaken teaching of the equality of all men" by which they were said to be seeking power over the whole world.

The Nazis claimed that high degree Masons were willing members of "the Jewish conspiracy" and that Freemasonry was one of the causes of Germany's loss in WWI. The preserved records of the RSHA (Reichssicherheitshauptamt - Office of the High Command of Security Service pursuing the racial objectives of the SS through Race and Resettlement Office), show the persecution of the Freemasons.[20] The number of Freemasons from Nazi occupied countries who were killed is not accurately known, but it is estimated that between 80,000 and 200,000 Freemasons were murdered under the Nazi regime.

Under Heydrich, the Security Police and the SD was the primary agency responsible for intelligence analysis and executive measures in suppressing numerous internal and external enemies of the Nazi state. The SD established intelligence departments to study the alleged long-term machinations of each of the Reich's enemies: “World Jewry,” “Marxists” (Communists, Social Democrats, and trade unionists), “political churches” (e.g. Lutherans and Catholic clergy who opposed the regime as well as members of other Protestant denominations -- such as the Jehovah's Witnesses -- whose members did not accept the authority of the Nazi state), right-wing nationalist opponents, and Freemasonry. The Gestapo arrested these political opponents and, where deemed appropriate, incarcerated them in concentration camps using the police authority granted by an order of Protective Custody (Schutzhaftbefehl).
