The occult Nazis: Popular representations in films and computer games

Abstract [en]

The esoteric side of the Nazi German Third Reich is subject to numerous media representations. In my paper I discuss the topic mainly from the view of documentary films, popular movies and computer games. One of the findings in my PhD study, dealing with the Third Reich in today´s popular culture, is that the esoteric, the occult, the gothic and the uncanny are to a large extent contributing to the shaping of a popular conception of the historical Nazi Germany. It is also proposing an explanation where the evil deeds performed by the Nazis to a large extent are either made possible by, or the direct result of, their engagement in a ”false, heathen religion” or even Devil worship and black magic.
