Referring to Germany in the years between 1933 and 1945, the Third Reich, later called the German Reich, was governed by the National Socialist German Workers Party with Adolf Hitler as chancellor and then Head of State. In the 1930's when Hitler came into power, swiss astrologer Krafft had gained a unique status among occultists and prophets in Germany. Krafft moved directly into the orbit of the high echelon of the National Socialist elite and in November of 1939 made a prediction. Krafft made a remark that Fuhrer's life would be in danger between the 7th and the 10th of that month. On November 8th, a bomb exploded at the Muchen beer hall. There were many injuries, but the man who was targeted, Adolf Hitler was unharmed. When newspapers reported the near catastrophe, Fesel dispatched a telegram to Hess, drawing attention to the prediction made by KRafft. Krafft was instantly arrested and brought to Gestapo headquarters in Berlin for questioning. After determining that Krafft was innocent, the Party began to rely on Krafft's predictions. Krafft became the astrologer for the Third Reich.
From 1939 until 1945, the Reich ruled Bohemia and Moravia as a protectorate, peacefully subjugated prior to the start of World War II. Krafft predicted that to be successful in the war, it must end in Germany in 1943. By the end of 1942, Germany was at the zenith of its victories, but after that date the full might of the allies with the United States behind them could not fail to eventually swamp Germany. The territorial gains of the German Reich were reversed by the Allied Powers during the last part of the war and resulted in the Reich's total defeat in May of 1945.
Swiss astrologer Karl Ernst Krafft may have felt very justified after the war, however. Having been caught up in Hitler's fury over Hess' astonishing flight to Scotland in 1941, Krafft was in prison for a year before being released. But, after the war, surviving Nazi leaders were put on trial by an Allied tribunal at Nuremberg for crimes against humanity. A minority were sentenced to death and executed, but a number were jailed and then released by the mid 1950's due to poor health and old age. In the 1960's through the 1980's, some renewed efforts were made in West Germany to take those who were directly responsible for "crimes against humanity" to court. However, many of the less prominent leaders continued to live well into the 1980's and 1990's.
Swiss astrologer Karl Ernst Krafft died on January 8th 1945 on his way to the Buchenwald concentration camp...this not before he predicted that British bombs would soon destroy the Propaganda ministry in Berlin-another true statement.
