CENSORED IN 1982:

AMERICAN INDUSTRIALISTS TRADED WITH THE ENEMY

Author Charles Higham, in a shocking expose of American corporate greed, has revealed a disgraceful if not criminal collaboration of some of America’s largest corporations with Nazi German not only before but during World War II.

Higham documents his claims with information gathered through the National Archives and the Freedom of Information Act. His book, Trading With The Enemy, gives evidence that such industrial and financial giants as DuPont, Rockefeller, Ford, Chase Manhattan Bank, I.T.T., General Motors, and Standard Oil purposely collaborated with the Nazi’s either for monetary gain or because they were Nazi sympathizers hoping for a German victory.

Higham claims that, among other examples, Standard Oil supplied fuel for German U-boats through neutral Spain; ITT supplied equipment for the Nazi’s buzz bombs; Ford maintained a motor plant in Vichy France that produced tanks and troop carriers for the Third Reich; Chase Manhattan Bank trafficked in the Gold market through the Nazi-controlled Bank for International Settlement in Basel.

Most of the above concerns were interlocked with the German industrial giant I.G. Farben, the company that produced poison gas for the death camps and that ran the largest camp, Auschwitz, for its slave labor.

Source for this story was a review of the Higham book that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, 2/9/83; it was cited as the #8 censored story of 1982.

REPORTED IN 2010

OSCAR-WINNING U.S. FILMMAKER OLIVER STONE

SAYS ADOLF HITLER WAS ‘ENABLED BY WESTERN BANKERS’

The Canadian Press reported on January 26, 2010, that “Adolf Hitler was a psychopath and a monster but arose to power thanks to big business leaders and other supporters who appreciated his vow to destroy communism and control workers, Hollywood filmmaker Oliver Stone said Monday.

“Stone, who is working on a 10-part documentary on the 20th century titled ‘The Secret History of the United States,’ said the German dictator was ‘enabled by Western bankers’ and managed to ‘seduce’ Germany’s military industrial complex.”
