A Russian who immigrated
to Germany, Gregor Schwartz-Bostunitsch
became a fervent anthroposophist
for a brief period in the teens of the
last century. Just as quickly he decided
that Steiner was actually evil and started
publishing material against him. In Hitler's
paper the, Voelkische Beobachter Schwartz-Bostunitsch
described Anthroposophy as a decadent form
of freemasonry (the Nazi's were vehemently
opposed to freemasonry, blaming much of
Germany's troubles on the machinations
of the Masons and Jews). The title of the
article was Steiner: The New Messiah.
His status as a self-professed expert on
opponent of freemasonry was cemented with
his 1928 book The Freemasons.
In 1930 he published a book titled: Rudolf
Steiner: A Swindler Like No Other.
Schwartz-Bostunitsch wrote anti-Bolshevik
and rabidly anti-Semitic
works for a Nazi audience over a 20-year
period. In 1940 he was still denouncing
the banned Anthroposophical Society.
After a brief interest, Gregor Schwartz-Bostunitsch
spent a lifetime maligning anthroposophy,
yet he is held up as an example of a racist
anthroposophist! Rather, he was a racist
and anti-Semite (and a particularly vile
one at that) who had a brief interest in
anthroposophy. His rapid repudiation of
Steiner should be evidence of how little
Steiner's thought influenced him.
