Speculation still surrounds Otto Rahn and his research. From an early age, Rahn became interested in the legends of Parzival , the Holy Grail , Lohengrin and the Nibelungenlied. In , he travelled to the Pyrenees region of southern France where he conducted most of his research.
Aided by the French mystic and historian Antonin Gadal , Rahn argued that there was a direct link between Wolfram von Eschenbach 's Parzival and the Cathar Grail mystery. After the publication of his first book, Rahn's work came to the attention of Heinrich Himmler , the head of the SS , who was fascinated by the occult and had already initiated research in the south of France.
It was an uneasy partnership for Otto Rahn; later, he explained his SS membership to friends in the following way: "A man has to eat. What was I supposed to do? Turn Himmler down? Openly homosexual, frequenting anti-Nazi circles, and having fallen out of favour with the Nazi leadership, Rahn was assigned guard duty at the Dachau concentration camp in as punishment for a drunken homosexual scrape.
But the SS would not allow anyone to resign without consequences. His death was officially ruled a suicide. Rahn has been the object of many rumours and strange stories, including that his death had been faked, although all such speculation has failed to be substantiated.
