Sacred Sites: SEASON 2: EPISODE 6

Nazi Myths

In the 1930s, Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler were convinced Aryans from the mythological land of Atlantis really existed and founded great civilizations across the world. To prove their theory, a special SS division called the Ahnenerbe was formed to carry out archaeological investigations at ancient sites. Join us as we explore the Externsteine, Buddhist temples, and other sacred sites the Nazis hijacked to justify a sinister ideology--one that would have horrific consequences for the lives of millions.
