About Miguel Serrano

  • Miguel Joaquín Diego del Carmen Serrano Fernández, better known as Miguel Serrano (10 September 1917 – 28 February 2009), was a Chilean diplomat, writer, occultist, and fascist activist.
  • A Nazi sympathiser in the late 1930s and early 1940s, he later became a prominent figure in the neo-Nazi movement as an exponent of Esoteric Hitlerism. Born to a wealthy Chilean family of European descent, Serrano was orphaned as a child and raised by his grandmother.
  • After an education at the Internado Nacional Barros Arana, he developed an interest in writing and far-right politics, allying himself with the Chilean Nazi movement.
  • During the Second World War, in which Chile remained neutral, Serrano campaigned in support of Nazi Germany and promoted anti-semitic conspiracy theories through his own fortnightly publication, La Nueva Edad.
  • In 1942 he joined an occult order founded by a German migrant which combined pro-Nazi sentiment with ceremonial magic and kundalini yoga.
  • It presented the Nazi German leader Adolf Hitler as a spiritual adept who had incarnated to Earth as a savior of the Aryan race and who would lead humanity out of a dark age known as the Kali Yuga.
  • Serrano became convinced that Hitler had not died in 1945 but had secretly survived and was living in Antarctica.
  • After visiting Antarctica, Serrano travelled to Germany and then Switzerland, where he met the novelist Hermann Hesse and psychoanalyst Carl Jung; in 1965 he published a reminiscence of his time with the pair. In 1953 Serrano joined the Chilean diplomatic corps and was stationed in India until 1963, where he took a keen interest in Hinduism and wrote several books.
  • He was later made ambassador to Yugoslavia and then Austria, and while in Europe made contacts with various former Nazis and other far-rightists living on the continent.
  • Following Chile's election of a Marxist President, Salvador Allende, Serrano was dismissed from the diplomatic service in 1970.
  • After Allende was ousted in a coup and Augusto Pinochet took power, Serrano returned to Chile in 1973.
  • He became a prominent organiser in the Chilean neo-Nazi movement, holding annual celebrations of Hitler's birthday, organising a neo-Nazi rally in Santiago, and producing a neo-Nazi political manifesto.
  • He wrote a trilogy of books on Hitler in which he outlined his view of the Nazi leader as an avatar.
  • He remained in contact with neo-Nazis elsewhere in the world and gave interviews to various foreign far-right publications. In 2008 Serrano was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award (Premio a la Trayectoria) from the Universidad Mayor of Santiago.
  • After Savitri Devi, he has been considered the most prominent exponent of Esoteric Hitlerism within the neo-Nazi movement.
  • In that movement, he gained respect for his devotion to the cause even among neo-Nazis who regarded his ideas as far-fetched.
