Rudolf von Sebottendorff had withdrawn from the Thule Society in 1919. In 1933 he returned in the hope of reviving it.  He published a book entitled ‘Bevor Hitler kam’ (Before Hitler Came), in which he claimed “Thulers were the ones to whom Hitler first came, and Thulers were the first to unite themselves with Hitler.”  This claim was not favourably received by Nazi authorities.  After 1933, the Thule Society was suppressed and closed down by anti-Masonic legislation in 1935.
