Visions from Central Europe
Part One: Overview
"Don't be fooled, the eastern bloc will feign peaceful compliance: with the opening and shifting of borders, with pact dissolutions or pretended suggestions of neutrality. Then, when you are factored out of Western protection, they will attack you just like unprotected game."
Lucia, the last living seer from Fatima, 7 April 1990 (Fatima was 1917):
"The events taking place in Europe are a deception. Russia will be the scourge for all nations, because it was not converted. Russia attacks the West, and China invades in Asia."
Egger Gilge, Austria (1663-1735):
"One day the red-skirted will come and then it will be terrible."
Alois Irlmaier, Bavaria 1950:
"The Russians do not stop anywhere while running in their three wedges. Day and night they run in order to reach the Ruhr district, where the many furnaces and chimneys are...."
"It will be after the confusions in the balkans."
Stockert, Munich 1947:
"These tanks will come from the east and will drive with great speed to the west.... The tank troops of the Russians will come up to the Rhine."
Erna Stiglitz, Augsburg 1975:
"At the end of July Soviet attack wedges will rapidly advance against Western Europe."
Brother Adam, Wuerzburg 1949:
"At the same time sections of the Russian army will advance by West Prussia, Saxonia and Thuringia to the Rhine, in order to reach Calais and gain control of the channel coast."
Biernacki, Poland 1984:
"Next, the Red Army will strike against western Germany, exactly up to the French border."
Johanson, Skandinavia 1907:
"The assault from the east will (as predicted) happen on wide front between northern Scandinavia, Germany and northern Italy."
"Germany will be attacked from the east."
DaTerni, Italy 1971:
"Austria and western Germany will be occupied by troops escorted by
"And finally Russia will attack Germany...."
Brandt, Germany 1962:
"I saw Russian tanks march into Rottenburg (Neckar), it was a misty and cloudy day."
"From the east this war will break out. I am frightened of the east. This war will break out
"A terrible war will follow. The enemy will approach from the east like a flood."
Part Two: Detailed Visions
Brother Adam, Wuerzburg 1949:
"The war will break out in the southeast, but that is only a ruse. Thus the opposition is to be misled; Russia long prepared its plan of attack. Each Russian officer has the movement order already in the bag and waits only for the word. First, the main thrust is effected against Sweden and is directed then against Norway and Denmark."
[A little further on it says:]
"At the same time sections of the Russian army will advance by West Prussia, Saxonia and Thuringia to the Rhine, in order to gain control of Calais and the Channel coast. In the south the Soviet army will join the Yugoslav army. Their armies will confederate to break in to Greece and Italy. The Holy Father must flee. He must flee fast, in order to escape the blood bath. Cardinals fall and bishops too are victims. Then they will try to advance by Spain and France to the Atlantic coast in order to unite with the army fighting in the north and to complete the military encirclement of the European mainland. The third Russian army, which task it is to occupy the left blank areas and to strengthen inland communism -- head office of the communist world government should not be Moscow, but Bamberg -- will be used no more, because the army is disturbed in its advance due to the revolutions in the south and is in rapid dissolution, while a great monarch determined by God will attack the army in the north at the Niederrhein and overpower it with the most modern weapons.
"In Saxonia, where the back-flooding army places itself again to the battle, it will be struck and destroyed. Thus the war is terminated in Germany. The remainder of Russia's staggering armies will be pursued deep into the internal parts of Russia and wiped out."
Sister Elena Aiello Italy, (1959 - 1961)
"...another terrible war will come from the East to the West. Russia with her secret weapons will battle America, will overrun Europe. The river Rhine will be overflowing with corpses and blood. Italy will also be harassed by a great revolution, and the Pope will suffer terribly."
A Sister of Queen Brigite Order, Rome (published in 1970)
"The Third World War will begin a few days after the murder of a leader in the sector of Yugoslavia-Hungary."
Josef Kugelbeer - The Seer of Vorarlberg (1922)
"Overnight the revolution of the communists together with the national socialists starts. There is a storm over cloisters and clergymen. At first humans do not want to believe it, so surprisingly it will happen. Many will be imprisoned and executed. Everyone flees into the mountains. The Pfaender (Mountain) is full of people."
"Like a lightning from cheerful sky the revolution of Russia sweeps through first to Germany, then to France, Italy and England."
"The mischief will quite suddenly come from Russia. Everywhere tumults and destruction. The Rhine areas are destroyed by airplanes and invading armies."
"...mass famine and hunger, people will grind bark, in order to make flour; also the grass on the meadows will be used as food."
"The earth is a corpse field, like a desert. Humans come out quietly, frightened from their houses. The corpses are collected on wagons and buried in mass graves. Neither railways nor ships function, nor cars as in earlier times. The factories do not work, the fast pace of former times has stopped."
Josef Stockert (1947)
"Tanks roll over Germany. These tanks will come from the east and will drive with great speed to the west. Where obstacles are put in their way, they flatten everything to the ground. In three spearheads they pull to the west, along the North Sea, to Central Germany and in the south along the alps (as far as I can remember). Because of fear the people will flee to the west. In France the roads will be clogged by fleeing people and cars which cannot go forward and cannot go back. Men and women are used by the hostile army. Those who refuse [orders] are shot.... Food and everything that the hostile army needs is taken from the population. The tank troops of the Russians will come up to the Rhine. The whole country will be full of strange soldiers who murder and rape the women without check. The people will possess neither property nor anything else. Many won't have a house and will have to live in hiding places."
Prokop, the forest herdsman, Zwiesel (1887-1965)
"I sleep and sleep not when I lie in my hut at night. But things I see, frightening. I don't sleep because I can hear my bulls out there and I hear the wind and the rain. Once I saw the wind bringing fire and all the trees burn like matches. Another time I saw that everything is in decay, no human can be seen and no house, only ruins and debris. And again and again clouds come, fire-red, and it flashes, but it does not thunder."
"Once everything is dark down on Waldhaus Street [ed. comment: road near Zwiesel]. Someone goes around with a burning branch and shouts: 'Am I really the last one? Am I really still the only one?' And again the sky becomes yellow like a lemon as it hangs far down on the horizon. No bird sings. I do not find any bull or water anymore. Neither on the mountain nor down in the Regen (ed. comment: river near Zwiesel) you will find any drop. It had to come in such a way, because the people believe in nothing. Everyone seems to think that he lives forever and everyone thinks of what he appears to be and still can become. There will be a time when they all begin to become crazy and think that they can live from prudence and not from work. Those who work will be fewer and fewer. Those who live off the working ones will become more numerous. To rule is thus easier than to work."
Sepp Wudy, the farmer's farmhand (died in the First World War):
"As Sepp was called up to war [World War I] he said he wouldn't come back because he has to die in ice and snow. As it happened, he perished during the world war in the Dolomites. This is not the last war (1st world war), Sepp said, because then soon there will be another, and only after that the last one comes. This last one is more terrible than the other one. To know what it will be like at the time, you will be able to talk to your cousin in Vienna from your own house, and if you needed him rapidly he could be with you within one hour.
"The bohemian forest will one day be burned like a straw barn. Don't run away when the gray birds are flying. If you see this, know that the end is near and it has already begun. It will then be like one hundred years ago. So much the people are thrown back and with this they will be punished for their wantonness.
"You have the meal in front of you and are not allowed to eat it, because it brings you death; and you have the water and may not drink it, because it would also mean your death. From the Osser (mountain at the Bavarian-Bohemian boundary) there will still be a water source -- there you can drink. The air corrodes into the skin like a poison. Put on all the clothing you have and don't even let the tip of your nose remain uncovered. Place yourself into a hole and wait till it is all over. It will not last long. Or look for a cave in the mountains. When you loose your hair it has gotten you. Take a Kronwittbirl (Juniper fruit) into the mouth. This will help. And don't drink milk for (at least) eight weeks.
"It will be bad, and the later-born ones will have to learn writing and reading anew. The cause will be that the people do not recognize the Devil anymore, because he is dressed beautifully and promises everything to them.
"When no owl cries any more and the hares come to the house and collapse, then go away from the water and don't mow grass. In these times there will be no more border against Bavaria, but the border will be I cannot say." [Ed. comment: Wudy lived in Bohemia, few miles away from the border to Bavaria. This border doesn't exist anymore since the Czechs joined the European Union.)
"However, what do I say? It does not concern you but tell it to your children and grandchildren. They will have to face it and will experience the rest of the story. I also do not understand those that have no modesty at all. People will become increasingly base and godless, so things must come to a head. In the end [Europe] will be like [it was] one hundred years ago. I see even more, but I can't understand it and can't tell it. With the decline of faith everything goes downhill, and everything gets confused. Nobody sees clearly. The elite already believe nothing at all, the masses will be made crazy. In the church they play dance music and the parson will sing to it. Then they also dance, but outside there will be the celestial sign, which announces the beginning of great mischief. There will be a brightness in the north, like never seen before, and then the fire will rise up all around.
"Go to Bavaria, where
blessed Mary protects the people; but there too all will be chaotic.
"Farmer, tell this to your children: they shall run to the mountain when everything crashes. I'm only a farmhand and I don't know if it's a good or bad spirit which is showing me all these things. But I know it will happen."
Josef Naar, called "Fuhrmannl", Bohemia (1691-1763)
"Only a few humans will survive the great war. The area of Pilsen will figure in the outcome. Who isn't at least two miles distant from this place, should creep away on hands and feet because everything is destroyed -- body and soul. Signs of the large world war are: if the way to the forest is closed with barriers and wooden locks; if iron roads are built by the forest of Bohemia and around; and humans travel in fiery cars. The last "flying" road will be built near the Kubani mountain, (1362m high). In the houses the foxes and hare go in and out the windows, everywhere nettles grow. The city of Prague will be destroyed. The whole of Bohemia will be deserted. From afar people will come back to look around."
Farmer Eilert (Jasper) (1764-1833)
"In the evening one will say: Peace, peace. But there is no peace, and in the morning the enemies already stand before the doors. But it does not last long, and those will be in security who have found a good hiding place for only a few days. Also, the escape will be very rapid.... From the east this war will break out. I am frightened of the east. [At first] our soldiers will go to the borders, soon thereafter returning home calmly. But hardly they are at home when the enemy is there in such strength it's as if they grew like mushrooms out of the ground. [Ed. comment: This is suggestive of the collapse of the Warsaw Pact and withdrawal of Soviet military power from Central Europe, followed by German disarmament and the rapid return of Russian troops.]
"One battle will take place at the birch tree between Unna, Hamm and Werl. There nations from half over the world will face each other. Only a few Russians will get back home to tell of their defeat.... First the Polish will come over, then they will fight against their suppressors and finally get a king.
"An important battle will be held between Unna and Hamm. One has to throw wagons and wheels in the water, otherwise the fleeing enemies take it all with them. The battle, the victory, the escape will follow so rapidly after each other, that the one who can hide himself for only a short time will escape the danger. At Cologne the last battle will take place."
Johann Peter Knopp von Ehrenberg (1714-1794)
"Ships without horses come up the Rhine, carriages run without horses but with a buzzing sound. Then, when nobody believes it, there will be a war like there has never been before.... Foreigners will occupy the Rhine, but will be defeated after hard resistance.... When the bridge at Cologne will be finished, warriors will directly pass this bridge. Those who are requested [as reinforcements] at last come when everything is past."
Muehlhiasl from Apoig (1753 - 1830?)
[Ed. comment: Muehlhiasl and Stormberger could be the same person, though historians are uncertain.]
"Everything starts when a large bird or a fish flies over the forest [Ed. comment: a big airship flew over the Bavarian forest just before the First World War.] -- then the war comes, and a further one and then the last one will come. When does it come?
"Your children will not experience it, but your grandchildren may see the beginnings. The Reds [Ed., the original German word is "Rotjankerl" ] will come on the new roads. But they do not come across the Danube. A great war will come. A small one begins it, and a big one comes across the water and makes an end to it. The war will come from the east and will end in the west, [but] the last war will be the total destroyer (Ed., der Bankabraeumer]. When you do not understand the people you meet, it is not far to the terrible day. Humans have never seen so many fires and felt so much iron before. Everything will be in disorder. Those who survive must have an iron determination. But the fighting will not last long. Nothing will help those involved, even if they believe again and pray to God. They will become ill and no humans will be able to help them. It will not last for a long period of time. It will all happen so rapidly that nobody can believe it, but there is much blood and many corpses. It will happen so rapidly that one who has two loaves of bread under his arm and drops one of them, does not need to bend down to pick it up because one loaf will be enough. The war will not be over until the death birds stop flying. When you afterwards find a cow beside the Danube, the cow should be given a golden bell.
"Those who begin anew will build a church and praise God. Those who survived will say to each other "Brother, are you still living?" and will greet each other with "Jesus Christ be praised!" This will not exclusively be only with us, but all over the whole world, and right will become right again and the peace will govern a thousand years."
Anton Johansson, Sweden (1858-1909)
[Regretfully I have no literal version of his predictions, but he is quite well known for accurately predicting the sinking of the Titanic and naming one of its victims, millionaire John Jacob Astor VI. Johansson foresaw the events of World War I, accurately predicted San Francisco's earthquake of 1906 and a volcanic eruption in 1902 that demolished the city of St. Pierre, Mertinique. He said the Third World War would break out at "the end of July, beginning of August." Her further added: "I do not know the year."
Johansson predicted the following details:
1) India will be occupied by china.
2) New diseases used as weapons will cause 25 million people to die.
3) Persia and Turkey will be conquered by what seem to be Russian troops.
4) Revolutionaries will instigate unrest and war in India and Egypt to facilitate the occupation of India and Europe.
5) The Russians will conquer the Balkans.
6) There will be great destruction in Italy.
7) The "red storm" will approach France through Hungary, Austria, northern Italy and Switzerland. France will be conquered from inside and outside.
8) American supply depots will fall into Russian hands.
9) Germany will be attacked from the east.
10) There will be a civil war, Germans will fight against Germans.
11) The Eastern Bloc will cause a civil war in England.
12) Russia will lead a mass attack against the United States, so U.S. forces will be prevented from reinforcing Europe.
13) New weapons will cause huge
hurricanes and firestorms in the USA where the largest cities will be destroyed.
"Two or three decades after the first war it will come a second war still larger. Almost all the nations of the world will be involved. Millions of men will die without being soldiers. Fire will fall from the sky and many great cities will be destroyed. And after the end of the Second Great War, a third universal conflagration will come. There will be weapons totally new. In one day more men will die than in all previous wars. The battles will be accomplished with artificial weapons. Gigantic catastrophes will happen. Overnight it will take place -- in a pub in Zwiesel many people will be together, and outside the soldiers will ride over the bridge. The people will run out into the forest. Those, who hide themselves at the "Fuchsenriegel" or at the "Falkenstein" remain spared."
Mitar Tarabic (1829-1899)
"When this horrible war starts woe to those armies that fly through the skies. Better off will be those who fight on ground and water. People waging this war will have their scientists who will invent different and strange cannon-balls. When they explode, these cannon-balls, instead of killing, will cast a spell over all that lives; people, armies and livestock. This spell will make them sleep, and sleep they will instead of fighting, and after they will come back to their senses. We [Serbia] will not fight in this war, but others will do battle over our heads. Burning people will fall from the sky over Pozega [a town in Serbia]. Only one country at the end of the world, surrounded by great seas, as big as our Europe [Australia?], will live in peace, without any troubles.... Upon it or over it not a single canon-ball will explode! Those who run and hide in the mountains with three crosses will find shelter and will be saved to live afterwards in abundance, happiness and love, because there will be no more wars...."
The monk of Werl, Cologne (1801):
"There will be a terrible war; on one side will be the people who live where the sun rises, on the other all those who live where the sun sets. Russia will send out enormous masses of soldiers and Cossack cavalry. One will fight a long time without decisive result, until finally one comes to the country of the Rhine. There, one will fight so much during three days that the water of the Rhine will be reddened. This war will come when there is general contempt for religion. When nobody wants to obey any more, when one cannot distinguish the rich person from the poor, when the people give up themselves entirely to sensual pleasures, when iniquity reaches its climax believe that this time is close. What follows this battle: Peace will be returned to you, Germany; France will recover its king; the shepherd will bring the flock to its fold."
The blind young man from Prague (14th century)
These predictions are remarkable, describing the history of Bohemia from the First World War on.
1) One and one more and a half time there will be foreign rulers over Bohemia. [This is not clear.]
2) At a time when one ruler is over Bohemia for more than 60 years, a big war will start after a regicide. [Ed., this seems to refer to the First World War, which started with the assassination of the Austrian crown prince.]
3) Then, the crowned heads will fall like ripe apples from the trees. [Ed., this happened in the last months of the First World War, starting with Russia in 1917, spreading to Germany and Austria-Hungary in 1918.]
4) The Bohemian lion will rule himself and won't be subordinated any more. [Ed., this is a clear reference to Czechoslovakia.]
5) Two peoples will be in Bohemia.
6) The first (or ruling) people will persecute second people, and give them no freedom. [Mistreatment of the German minority.]
7) Until a powerful one comes. [Hitler]
8) Then, the lords in Prague will throw freedom to the second people, but too late.
9) There will come another war between all the peoples of the world. [Ed., this is the Second World War, which began after Czechoslovakia was dismembered.]
10) Germany will become a large heap of rubble and only the region of the blue stones will be spared. [Ed., the "blue stones" are the Alps.]
11) The big war will come to an end when the cherries blossom. [Ed., Hitler was defeated in May.]
12) As long as the cherries grow, I wouldn't want to be a German.
13) But when the cherries are harvested, I wouldn't want to be a Czech. [Ed., the Communists quickly took over the country.]
14) Twice the Bohemian land will be sieved: the first time only as many Germans will remain as there is place under an oak.
15) Again the Czech lion will rule over Bohemia, but it's brilliance is over.
16) Then there will be still only one people in Bohemia.
17) A new war will break out and this will be the shortest of all. (a) The people will destroy the world and the world will destroy the people. (b) And Bavaria has to suffer much. (c) This happens because mankind will leave God, and God will purify them. (d) When people attempt to take the creator's place the end is near.
18) The people in Bohemia will be destroyed by the war, and everything in the country will be buried.
19) Twice the Bohemian land will be sieved: the second time only as many Czechs will remain as there is space on one hand.
20) There won't be peace in Europe until Prague is a heap of rubble.
23) The revenge comes from across the large water.
21) At the [time of the] cherry blossom Prague will be destroyed.
24) When for the second time the cherries mature, the refugees from Bohemia sadly return again to their their looms and fields.
25) But it won't be many.
26) And these few will ask each other: Where did you hide, and where you?
27) The farmers will crack the whip behind the plow and say: Here was Prague.
28.) All over the world will be a new age, which will be called the Golden One.
The Sybille of Prague (?-1658)
"Still your rule lasts, my loved Prague, but also you will face the last hour. Prague, my dear Prague, you will find a rare and terrible end. A breath goes through your lanes, sweet and warm; surprised mankind will feel it. With horribly distorted faces thousands begin to rest and freeze despite the warmth. It comes to the end. Ten musty bells of the last church clang in the air. The slow and muddy tides of the Moldau roll as a terrible hurricane roars across the country, across the city. Yellow-grey dust and heavy, poisonous clouds take the breath from humans and cattle. The Hradschin is set on fire, in the city the walls burst. Everywhere fire rages. The earth trembles, vibrated by the mighty quake. Deep gaps do open, devouring the dead and the living. The graves open as ransacked by spirit hands, and the skeletons smile with cruel laughter. Everything sinks in the unfathomably black depth.
"From Vyschrad a tremendous fireball comes along, rocks fly through the air and all around blazes a sea of fire. Everything that mankind's diligence has created lies in debris and ash. One can only hear the roar of the storm. Life has gone out. I only see rubble and corpses. Slowly the clouds disappear where once the proud cathedral dome had been. I see a bloody-red fireball. It is over! Prague, your fate has been fulfilled! Where are your houses, proud city? Why do gloomy tides flood the coasts of a deserted heath? Horrible worms eat body and spirit with frightening effect. Weeds and ruins and a poisonous cloud characterizes the countryside. Is this the harvest of the human seed?"
