[Carl Jung and World War II]
He [Jung] had feared much when the Russians came into the war; but then he had a striking dream, of which he told me a part:
He was in a vast field with, in the distance, buildings like barracks.
The place was filled with hordes of buffalos (i.e. Germans).
He was on a mound, and Hitler was on another mound.
He felt that as long as he fixed his gaze on Hitler all would be well.
Then he saw a cloud of dust in the distance, and horsemen – Cossacks – rounding up the buffalos and driving them out of the field.
Then he woke and was glad, for he knew that Germany would be beaten by Russia.
This, he said, was a collective dream, and very important. ~E.A. Bennet, Confersations with Jung, Pages 26-27
He [Jung] listened daily to the B.B.C. and knew that England was the only hope, and that they would never give in. ~E.A. Bennet, Conversations with Jung, Page 24.
He [Jung] said that until 1935 it had seemed possible, in Germany and Italy, that some good could come from Naziism. Germany was transformed; instead of roads crowded with people without work, all was changed and peaceful. Then he saw other things and knew it was evil. ~E.A. Bennet, Conversations with Jung, Page 25.
He[Jung] became so outspoken in his criticisms of Germany that Mrs. Jung was afraid he would get into trouble, with so much German influence in Zürich. ~E.A. Bennet, Conversations with Jung, Page 25
Referring to the rumours of his so-called Nazi sympathies, C.G. told me that his name was on the black List in Germany because of his views, and that he would certainly have been shot at once had he fallen into Nazi hands. ~E.A. Bennet, Conversations with Jung, Page 26
