Aryan associations - New book reveals Nazi interest in the Canary Islands

One of the weirdest tales to emerge from the wacky world of the history of the Nazi re-working of history has to be the story of their idea that the cradle of the Aryan race – or at least one of them – was the Canary archipelago.

It was a view said to have been actively supported by General Franco and is the subject of a new book guaranteed to have a very wide appeal: to anyone interested in World War 2; the Nazis; the Canary Islands and, last but not least, to the paranormal community (and possibly the tourist board) who believe (like the Nazis) that the islands are the remains of the lost continent of Atlantis.
If they all go out and buy a copy, the professor will have a blockbuster on his hands.
So here’s the deal: according to the author scientists from Heinrich Himmler’s research institute which was funded by the SS, were on the point of beginning major investigations here, an endeavour which was stymied by the outbreak of war.
The institute, known as the Ahnenerbe, sent experts on missions around the world to search out Aryan roots, whether in ancient carvings in Sweden, or the alleged Aryan ancestors of the Buddha, in Tibet.
The supposedly noble savages who inhabited the Canary Islands before their conquest by Spain were an obvious target for membership of the exclusive Aryan club of Himmler.
It was a theory embraced by many Spanish archaeologists of the time who were to collaborate with their German counterparts in the search – at this distance in time it is difficult to apply the scientific word of “research” to the incident.
Thor’s Hammer and the Holy Grail were also on the shopping list of Himmler’s institute.
Professor Gracia has uncovered information that points to its having funded Spanish excavations in the islands and lent aircraft for aerial surveys.
Far from ever resuming their work to establish the Aryan connection of the Canary aboriginals, however, a number of the Ahnenerbe investigators never left Germany again. They were executed after judgment at Nuremberg.
