The Kalergi plan, Karl Haushofer

I searched the internet for a good story on Rudolf Hess’s close associate Karl Haushofer and his connection to Coudenhove-Kalergi, but I have only found a large PDF on Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi that involves Haushofer. It’s “too” long; I’ve tried to make a good summary of it (I’ll also add a link to and information from Haushofer’s Wikipedia page).

Many of Coudenhove-Kalergi’s contemporaries were recipients of the Nobel Prize:
Briand and Stresemann, politicians he had worked with, won in 1926;
Christian Lange, Coudenhove-Kalergi’s lecture tour companion in the US, won in 1921);
Fridtjof Nansen, PEU supporter, won in 1922;
Nathan Söderblom, PEU supporter, won in 1930;
Nicholas Murray Butler, PEU supporter, won in 1931;
Carl von Ossietzky, PEU supporter, won in 1935.
Coudenhove-Kalergi himself was nominated 54 times from his first nomination in 1931 prize to 1967.

The notorious freemason Giuseppe Mazzini was one of the psychopaths that preceded, influenced Coudenhove-Kalergi; he wrote in 1850: “We do not simply strive to create Europe; our goal is to create the United States of Europe”.
Mazzini’s associate Carlo Cattaneo had written in 1848 and 1849: “We will have peace, and we can enjoy peace, when we have the United States of Europe”.

Coudenhove-Kalergi wasn’t only close to Hjalmar Schacht but also to another top Nazi, Karl Haushofer. Haushofer invented “geopolitik” that was a huge influence on Nazi foreign policy. Haushofer and his son, Albrecht, were very close to top Nazi Rudolf Hess (Haushofer’s student).
In 1929, Haushofer attended the launch of the Munich Pan-European Group where he was seated next to Thomas Mann and Coudenhove-Kalergi’s Jewish wife Ida Roland. In 1931, Haushofer appeared as a guest lecturer at one of the Pan-European conferences. Coudenhove-Kalergi even invited Haushofer for the honorary committee of the German Pan-European Union (PEU-Deutschland), an invitation that Haushofer politely declined.

See from left: Karl Haushofer, Gerhard Wagner, Rudolf Hess, Prince zu Wied, 13 May 1935:

After Hitler came to power, in 1933 he supposedly banned the PEU-Deutschland, but Haushofer remained close to Coudenhove-Kalergi. Also the president of the Reichstag Paul Löbe openly signed up to the Pan-European movement.

Haushofer continued to use Coudenhove-Kalergi’s world map, dividing the world into 5 super states, as late as 1935.

Haushofer and other geopolitikers continued to refer to Coudenhove-Kalergi’s works and vice versa. Pan-Europeanists and geopolitikers were appealing to the same audience.
Coudenhove-Kalergi’s term Eurafrica was enthusiastically embraced by the new Italian monthly journal Geopolitica, launched in 1939, while Karl Haushofer himself contributed to the discussion with the 1938 article “Eurafrika?”.

Benjamin James Thorpe - The time and space of Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi’s Pan-Europe, 1923-1939 (2018):

In 1896, Karl Ernst Haushofer (1869 – 1946) married Martha Mayer-Doss whose father was Jewish. They had two sons, Albrecht and Heinz. Haushofer ’s wife and children were Mischlinge according to Nazi laws, but Albrecht was issued an Aryan certificate with the help of Rudolf Hess.

In 1919, Karl Haushofer became friends with the young Rudolf Hess, who became his scientific assistant.
While Hess and Hitler were imprisoned after the Munich Beer hall putsch in 1923, Haushofer spent 6 hours visiting the 2. Haushofer’s ideas were a huge inspiration for Mein Kampf (officially written by Adolf Hitler). It has been rumoured that Hess made his flight to Britain because he was influenced by Haushofer’s ideas.
It has been claimed that Haushofer created the Vril society and was a secret member of the Thule Society.

After the 20 July 1944 assassination plot against Adolf Hitler, Haushofer's son Albrecht was arrested on 7 December 1944 and imprisoned in Berlin. During the night of 22–23 April 1945, Albrecht and other prisoners were shot and killed by an SS-squad.
Karl Haushofer was imprisoned in the Dachau concentration camp. His son and grandson were also imprisoned for 2 ½ months.
On the night of 10–11 March 1946, Karl Haushofer and his wife committed suicide on their Hartschimmelhof estate:

Google and Yahoo wouldn’t block them without a very good reason:
