Nostradamus und die Nazis - Astrologie und Aberglaube unter dem Hakenkreuz
(Christian Blees, Berlin, DE, September 16, 2008, radio Deutschlandfunk)

Nederlandse versie
 
 

In this radio documentary, broadcasted on radio Deutschlandfunk on September 16, 2008, the German journalist Christian Blees discusses the relation in nazi-Germany between astrology and national-socialism. He raises the backgrounds of the prohibition, issued in 1938 by the national-socialists, to practice astrology in whatever way: they argued that astrology was in conflict with national-socialist ideas about the racial soul. 
Blees also highlights how the national-socialists used the Centuries for psychological warfare, in order to undermine the morale of their adversaries, and the fact that astrologers were ordered to determine the locations of hostile submarines by means of pendulum techniques.
This radio documentary contained a.o. parts of Blees' conversation on June 19, 2008 with T.W.M. van Berkel about his findings in his research on the use of the Centuries in World War II for psychological warfare.
