Is it true that Hitler planned to remodel his future "Germania" to look like another Roman Empire (using Greco-Roman style of architecture), if so , why? (as that is not related to Nordic culture is it?

Answers:

All of Germanic languages used to be dialects of proto-Germanic. Greeks, Germanic tribes and Romans are closely related to each other genetically and linguistically. He did not invent the beliefs of Indo-European family tree simply took them as part of his ideology some of his influences came from a French writer

What you say is not exactly true. Hitler's favorite architect, Albert Speer, was known for a kind of modern design, a simplified version of Roman architecture.

Hitler liked Speer so much he made Speer his Minister of Armaments.

The only top Nazi to plead guilty at the Nuremberg trial, Speer served a long prison sentence.

In his memoirs, he wrote, "There is no point of asking what was at the center of Hitler's being. Nothing was there."

No, early 20th century German mysticism was very odd. A curious mixture of folklore, fairytale and the bizarre racial and world history theories which originated from the Theosophist movement. in Germany, the mystical nonsense of 'Madame Blavatsky' and her followers turned into the weird racial and educational theories of Rudolf Steiner, and the 'armanism' of Guido List. Other related sects or cults included the followers of Lanz von Liebenfels who propounded 'ariosophy'. Blavatsky's other noted converts included the young Mohandas Gandhi, who she designated a 'mahatma' and who encouraged him to adopt the title.

He wanted to. You are trying to make his thinking made sense, it didn't.

I presume Hitler never saw "Nordic" culture and art. I've read a few bios. of Hitler, and none said he had visited a Scandinavian country. Goering's first wife was Scandinavian. He might have noticed the differences when he was there.

Hitler grew up in Austria, near the border with Bavaria, so he would have been more familiar with Tyrolian architecture and with the Baroque and Gothic architecture of Vienna.

The architecture of most of our 18th-19th century public buildings copied the Greco-Roman styles. The White House and the Capitol building. St. Paul's cathedral. Osgoode Hall (The Law Society of Upper Canada) and any banks that have two or more pillars out front and have not been torn down to build skyscrapers. They meant power and stability back then, and Adolf wanted to convey that.

One of the banks, or the old Toronto Stock exchange building, has a facade of "industry" circa 1930 that looks like Nazi art: all sharp edges and square shoulders. Rome had more curves.

Greco-Roman was admired by Europeans who felt their own modern architecture was not as grandiose as the classic Greek and Roman empires produced. Modern society admires the classics.
