The term Esoteric Nazism refers to semi-religious developments of Nazism in the post-World War II period. After 1945, esoteric elements of the Third Reich were developed into new völkisch (German: "ethnic") religions of white identity. Examples of post-war Nazi mystical philosophies include Esoteric Hitlerism and the Tempelhofgesellschaft. Esoteric Hitlerism includes the race-specific, pre-Christian religion (including references to Hinduism) of some Nazis.

Im curious as to what little known facts/conspiracies are out there regarding the topic.
Adolph Hitler did not plan a career in politics when he moved to Vienna in 1908. His great dream at that time was to devote his life to art...either as a painter, a theatrical designer or an architect. Prior to his move to Vienna he was a provincial German national. But Vienna was not a good match for Hitler. A sophisticated city of mainly upper-class Jewish families, with its coffee houses, cafes, painters such as Klimt and Schiele, composers such as Mahler, the architecture of Otto Wagner, the psychiatry of Sigmund Freud and many progressive social programs, Vienna took no notice of the unimaginatively artistic and socially inept Adolph Hitler.
In a chapter from his article on The Rise of Adolph Hitler, Drifting in Vienna, Jeremy Noakes describes those years in Vienna from 1908 until 1913. Unable to gain a place in the art school (his application was rejected twice) Hitler was forced to live in hostels and, too frail for most manual labor jobs, subsisted on the small amount of money he made hawking his paintings of famous sites. Vienna is where Hitler first became politically active. His bitterness at his rejection as an artist and his feeling of being an outsider in the sophisticated society of Vienna undoubtedly fueled his bitterness and paved the way for his hatred of both the modern art and the Jewish community that had been oblivious to both his work and himself.
