The first in a three-part series of documentaries that explore the links between the Third Reich and its leaders and belief in occult powers and practices, this program examines the history of the swastika. The "armed cross" had roots in spiritual practices in India and Tibet, and this film explains what it meant to other cultures and how it came to be adopted by the Nazi Party.
