RUDOLPH HESS (1894-1987)

Early Nazi party member who became Deputy Fuehrer. Hess is best remembered for his bizarre attempt to win Great Britain on the side of the Axis that ended in his imprisonment.

     Hess had been  a member of the Thule Society, and was said to daily consulted astrologers and fortunetellers for advice. Hess became convinced by a psychic that Britain had to enter World War II on the Axis side for Germany to win. He thought he could convince the British to join the Axis, and flew a plane to Scotland on a mission to win them over...obviously not very likely.  Hess failed in his mission and was immediately captured by a pitchfork wielding farmer upon his arrival!

     Hitler was furious when news of Hess’s capture reached him. It’s said Hitler read a letter Hess left him, and though the contents aren’t known, Hitler immediately had all astrologers, fortune tellers , and psychics arrested in Germany after that incident, suggesting the letter was about an astrological or psychic prediction that precipitated Hess’ flight. Hess sat out the war in prison, and was later sentenced to life imprisonment during the Nuremberg War Crime Trials.

    Hess spent the rest of his life in Spandau Prison, and for many years was it’s only resident. He attempted suicide on several occasions, and finally succeeded in 1989 at the age of 90. From his capture in 1938 to his suicide in 1989, Hess spent more of his life imprisoned than he did free.  In his suicide note he told his wife he had pretended to be insane, hoping he could gain his release. His plan failed, and it must have been enough to drive someone mad, having to pretend for 50 years to be crazy! The occult didn’t work for Hess, and it won’t work for anyone else.

    Rudolph Hess Nazi war criminal, prisoner most of his life,  and ultimate failure who committed suicide.
