Rainer Hoess and Ursula Boger represent a group of contemporary Germans who have suffered greatly because of the atrocities perpetrated by their grandfathers… who had played big roles in Nazi death camps during World War II. Rudolf Hoess was hanged in 1947 for engineering an efficient extermination system that killed 2.5 million people, mostly Jews, at Auschwitz. Wilhelm Boger, also at Auschwitz, invented a device to torture inmates until they passed out… and he died in prison in 1977. Their contemporary grandchildren have had to contend not only with shame for the choices of their grandfathers, but also ostracism and personal attack by society. (click here for that story)
Earth is a beautiful world but a savage world, and our choices profoundly affect not just our families, but many worlds of spirit. Our noble qualities of love, friendship, and mutual support stir warm thoughts and attitudes within us that emanate in-beyond to create and sustain many paradise worlds where most of us awaken after we die.
By contrast, our worst actions create terror and pandemonium around us, and the frenzied thought forms of everyone touched by the torment spin off the Earth like violent storms, creating dark worlds of chaos and suffering.
The pain felt by the grandchildren of Nazi criminals pales when compared to the afterlife experiences of the Nazis themselves.
On December 4, 1994, German ITC researcher Adolf Homes (Rivenich) received a letter on his Commodore 64 computer from Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoess, 47 years after his execution for crimes against humanity. Here’s the letter from Hoess, describing the hell that he and many of his colleagues were sharing:
Rudolf Höss end on Terra. Contact attempt spirit through electromagnetic means. To receiver:
Great grief is weighing down upon my group and me. I was responsible in the death factory. Blind obedience without reason created unimaginable pain, fear and death. I hear the screams of mothers and the death rattle of children.
The receivers must pray for Rudolf Hoess. Prayer helps. I am gasping for air since Poland 1947. The air is filled with gas. Please help us by praying. 65,000 spirits cry and scream. Their bodies are too heavy for us. Our doors are closed on the outside and ash is blinding our eyes. Where is God who forgives and takes away this curse of August 2, 1934?
Please stay away from teachings of racial superiority. Many want to help us, but the doors are closed. Please open the doors and air vents. We are being observed by animals through observation holes. Believe us, there is a hell. Where is God? We cannot perceive him.
Many people follow our actions in spirit. Please pray for them all. Through the fog we can see cows and lions fishing ashes out of the river and taking them to the synagogues.
In an infinite distance there are white roses illuminated by bright light. If we could reach those roses we would be free. Please pray for our freedom for we deeply regret our deeds.
signed, Rudolf Höss

German physicist Ernst Senkowski (Mainz), who worked closely with ITC researcher Homes, sent me some background on that contact. Professor Senkowski:
“The computer letter starts out, ‘1947 – Rudolf Höss – end on Terra’, meaning that Höss died in 1947. References in the letter to “white roses” have a double meaning. It referred to the White Rose student group who opposed the Nazi regime and also to white roses which Höss in his private hell now can see in the distance. Höss grew up in a Roman Catholic family and had early encouragement to become a priest. That may be one reason he asks for prayer from people.”
More background: Born in 1900 and raised by a military father under strict Catholicism, Rudolf Hoess began turning away from religion in his early teens and joined the army at age 14, when World War I broke out. He formally renounced Catholicism in 1922 before becoming part of the Nazi death machine, and may have had a last-minute change of heart. Four days before his execution, he sent these comments to the state prosecutor:
“My conscience compels me to make the following declaration. In the solitude of my prison cell I have come to the bitter recognition that I have sinned gravely against humanity. As Commandant of Auschwitz I was responsible for carrying out part of the cruel plans of the ‘Third Reich’ for human destruction. In so doing I have inflicted terrible wounds on humanity. I caused unspeakable suffering for the Polish people in particular. I am to pay for this with my life. May the Lord God forgive one day what I have done.”

I’d urge readers to include in their prayers… Rudolf Hoess and others who have awakened after death trapped in dark worlds of torment. When we pray from the heart we create an instant link with the finest realms of spirit, and beams of light stream to the focus of our prayers. The light from prayer not only facilitates miracles in our world, but can stream into the dark, dismal realms of spirit… raising the vibrations, breaking up conditions of hopeless suffering, and bringing peace. Our prayers help these ethereal beams locate dark blockages that need attention in our world and beyond. That is the true power of prayer.
Mark, this post is sadly graphic and heart touching. Thank you for reminding us of the power of prayer and the need to keep remembering and praying for ones in history who may be suffering still.
Always love hearing from you, Jean.
Mark, Thank you for posting this article. This is definately ‘food for thought’.
I just wonder what the families of those who suffered by his hand would have to say about praying to release him from his torment.
That’s a good question, George.
They say forgiveness is one of the best things for the human soul… but these kinds of things are not easy for many people to forgive.
Just because I have a lot of difficulty wrapping my mind around cruelty and brutality, I refuse to let it diminish my sense of compassion. How can one NOT feel sympathy for someone who has lost their sense of humanity to such an extreme extent?
Any contact with Adolph Hitler? What’ hell is he in? And Joseph Stalin and the victims of his Gulags?
I could only guess about specifics, Thelma.
The general rule seems to be: the more suffering we cause others during our lifetime(s), the more likely we’ll be stuck somewhere in Earth’s shadow after we die.
That’s because the inner light (where there’s honesty, truth, love…) inside each of us is blocked or distracted by all the sensory dramas going on around us while alive on Earth. But once we leave the Earth, that inner light can suddenly shine through, and then we’re usually remorseful by whatever savage behavior we’d perpetrated on Earth during that lifetime.
Then, I suspect, it’s a matter of degrees. We all have that inner light (a connection to the source at the center of our being), and we all get caught up in Earth’s drama during a lifetime. We all can’t help but cause suffering to some degree, because suffering is wrapped up in Earth’s symbiosis.
I suspect the general rule is: The more suffering we cause, and the more callous or blasé we are about it, the deeper in the shadow we awaken after a lifetime.
Most of us apparently go through a short assessment period after we die, and once we shed our emotional baggage through a rejuvenating sleep, we awaken in a sort of paradise world where relationships are mostly win-win… or at least no one loses or suffers the way they did on Earth. If our baggage is too heavy, or we’re too attached to it, I think we’ll stay in the shadow for a while until we can sort it all out.
As for Hitler and Stalin and others who cause immense suffering?… again, could only guess.
