In the Nuremberg Trials after World War II, Schäfer gave the following deposition: "Himmler had some very strange ideas. He wanted to prove the Nordic race had come down directly from the skies. They all believed in glacial cosmogony. Needless to say, the whole thing was quite unscientific ... and so far-fetched that it is hard to believe. They all dabbled in the occult."
Did they perceive the Himalayan snowman as a "cold-resistant Proto-Aryan?"
I didn´t know that the Nazis had an interest in the yeti myth. Ok, this book is fascinating and I´m really enjoying it so far.
