Nostradamus

 

In the substudy "World War II", the origins are discussed of propaganda during World War II as far as based upon the Centuries, Century-comments or the reputation of Nostradamus as an astrologer, prophet or seer who predicted important political events for the years until the end of times. Books and newspaper articles are discussed which date from the period 1921-1945 (studies, national-socialist propaganda, Allied counter-propaganda) and post-war publications which have a connection with the fortune of the Centuries in World War II, Century-comments or the reputation of Nostradamus. Further, brief biographies are presented of a number of authors whose publications have been studied as well as brief information on magazines and newspapers.
