The Thule Society (German: Thule-Gesellschaft), originally the Study Group for Germanic Antiquity, was a völkisch and occult-influenced organization created after World War I. The Thule Society was disbanded around 1925 because of declining membership.
The organization is today known for its association with the beginning of the NSDAP. Claims regarding this has varied widely, with the most extreme claims claiming very large influence by the Thule Society and other forms of occultism. This has been criticized, with most NSDAP leaders stated to have had no contact with the Thule society and the few that had contracts had so only briefly. Notably, that there is no evidence Hitler ever attended the Thule Society. See the "External links" section.
