And Time Rolls On
The Savitri Devi Interviews
R. G. Fowler
Savitri Devi (1905-1982) became known as the
high priestess of “esoteric Hitlerism” for her unique synthesis of
National Socialism, Hindu mythology, and the Indo-European cyclical
view of history in her 1958 book The Lightning and the Sun.
In 1978, Savitri Devi recorded ten hours of interviews on her life, her
thought, and her experiences in the National Socialist movement both
before and after World War II. These interviews are an ideal
introduction to this brilliant and controversial thinker. Now, for the
first time, the edited transcripts of these hard to find recordings are
available to readers. This volume is published in commemoration of
Savitri Devi’s 100th birthday, 30 September 2005.
“I embraced Hinduism because it was the only religion in the world
that is compatible with National Socialism. And the dream of my life is
to integrate Hitlerism into the old Aryan tradition, to show that it is
really a resurgence of the original tradition. It’s not Indian, not
European, but Indo-European. It comes from back to those days when the
Aryans were one people near the North Pole. The Hyperborean tradition.”
“It suddenly dawned on me, sometime in April 1929 . . . and in
Palestine of all places, that this foreign German leader who wanted all
Germans in one state and wanted the abolition of the treaties of
Versailles and Saint Germain, really wanted more than that, much more.
And much more meaning: the freedom of Europe, the freedom of the Aryan
race, from any kind of Jewish spiritual overlordship. He’s the one
who’s going to free us from that. Well if he’s that, then he’s not only
the Germans’ leader, he’s my leader too. Mein Führer. And
from that day, I felt, not that I was becoming a National Socialist—I
never became one—but that I had always been one, without knowing it.
That’s what I felt. And I started thinking of going to Germany and
joining the movement. It was the movement of liberation.”
“What I like about National Socialism is the idea of perfection. The
idea that man should be perfect. There is a perfect type of each race.
Every race should strive to its own perfect type. National Socialism is
an Aryan racialism, but you could transpose it. I can very well imagine
a non-Aryan, say a Japanese, having the same ideas as ours. . . . And
that’s why if to be a religion, the basic principles of the doctrine
have to be universal, I can say National Socialism is a religion.”
“I love all animals, especially felines. . . . The only creature
that I cannot love is the stupid, average two-legged mammal who doesn’t
think for himself. He’s supposed to think. He’s supposed to look
upwards. Man in Greek is called anthropos. Now if you decompose the word anthropos, it means ‘the one who looks above.’ If he doesn’t look above, he’s no anthropos.
He’s no man. And the majority of people who call themselves men, they
are not men according to the Greek etymology of the word. A man is
supposed to think.”
“I’m for a multi-racial world in which each race keeps to itself, in
harmony with the other races. Like in a garden, you have flowerbeds of
roses and flowerbeds of carnations and irises and different other
flowers. They don’t intermarry. They stay separate, and each one has
its beauty. . . . I’m against colonialism for the reason that
colonialism infects the master as well as the slave. It even infects
the master more.”
