|"Was heisst Deutsch?" (1931)|
by Herman Wirth*
Herman Wirth translated (most of) the Oera Linda Book into German and was co-founder of SS-Ahnenerbe. Heinrich Himmler often indirectly referred to the Oera Linda Book (he used the name Wralda or Uralte for God) and had it secretly investigated until 1942 by linguist Otto Maußer.

* Herman Wirth was the actual spiritual father of Ahnenerbe. "Was heisst Deutsch?" (what means Deutsch/German?) was published in 1931, Ahnenerbe was founded four years later. Subtitle of the book: "Ein urgeistesgeschichtlicher Rückblick zur Selbstbesinnung und Selbstbestimmung" (a primordial-spiritual-historical retrospect aimed at self-reflection and self-determination). Already on the 7th line, Wirth writes about "Bewußtwerdung des Ahnenerbes" (becoming aware of the ancestral heritage).
