Seventy-five years ago, the Red Army liberated the survivors of the Auschwitz death camp, where more than a million of the approximately six million European Jews murdered by the Nazis perished.

Pence, world leaders mark 75th anniversary of freeing of Auschwitz death camp by Mark Moore, New York Post, Jan. 23, 2020.

Vice President Mike Pence was among the world leaders and Holocaust survivors who gathered in Jerusalem on Thursday to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz death camp], pledging that the Nazi atrocities will never be allowed to occur again.

There is simply no way an impoverished and utterly demilitarized Nazi Germany, with no air force, a tiny navy, no armored vehicles, no heavy weapons and a tiny army, could have on its own, built its armed forces up to the most powerful military in the world during the first six years of Hitler's rule of Germany in depression without the colossal and crucial investments in, and joint venturing by, top US corporations in low wage Nazi Germany in outright evasion of the Versailles Treaty prohibition of German rearmament. There is no way Hitler could have begun a world war and a multi-nation Holocaust when he did without the mega enormous financial and technical help he received from the United States of America. England and France cooperated, especially in agreeing to allow the abandonment of the prohibitions on German rearmament, while Western media defended the building up of Nazi Germany's military as only a 'bulwark' against the Soviet Union.

Hitler's uncompromisingly lethal condemnation of communism and the very existence of Wall Street's archenemy, socialist Soviet Union, would have to have impressed the US and European wealthy, whose racist capitalist colonial rule of most of the world was threatened by socialist fervor and riots at home for its failure to have prevented the ongoing Great Depression with tens of millions suffering even from lack of food. Newsreels of massive and violent riots in many US cities can be seen on YouTube at 'Riots Across America - The Great Depression.'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78NWr2JEymg

Given the general public's lack of awareness regarding Wall Street investors responsibility for WW II and the multi-nation Holocaust for the American public having been raised from youth by Wall St. owned and CIA supervised mainstream media mythologizing WWII as a battle of the pure and good Americans, British and French versus evil Germans, no one will regret the time spent in reading Anthony Sutton's 'Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler,' 1976, available at [click here] Sutton was economics professor at California State University, Los Angeles and a research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institute from 1968 to 1973.

"The contribution made by American capitalism to German war preparations before 1940 can only be described as phenomenal. It was certainly crucial to German military capabilities. For instance, in 1934 Germany produced domestically only 300,000 tons of natural petroleum products and less than 800,000 tons of synthetic gasoline; Yet, ten years later in World War II, after transfer of the Standard Oil of New Jersey hydrogenation patents and technology to I. G. Farben, Germany produced about 6 1/2 million tons of oil -- of which 85 percent was synthetic oil using the Standard Oil hydrogenation process.

Germans were brought to Detroit to learn the techniques of specialized production of components, and of straight-line assembly. The techniques learned in Detroit were eventually used to construct the dive-bombing Stukas .... I. G. Farben representatives in this country enabled a stream of German engineers to visit not only plane plants but others of military importance. Contemporary American business press confirm that business journals and newspapers were fully aware of the Nazi threat and its nature." [click here]

Both at the Allied Normandy landing and three years earlier in Russia many, or often nearly most, disabled Nazi tanks were found to have GM motors. When American GIs invaded Europe in June 1944, they did so in jeeps, trucks and tanks manufactured by the Big Three motor companies in one of the largest crash militarization programs ever undertaken. It came as an unpleasant surprise to discover that the enemy was also driving trucks manufactured by Ford and Opel -- a 100 percent GM-owned subsidiary -- and flying Opel-built warplanes. (Chrysler's role in the German rearmament effort was much less significant.) See Ford and GM Scrutinized for Alleged Nazi Collaboration,Washington Post Michael Dobbs, 11/30/1998. click here]

The following is excerpted from a report printed by the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary in 1974:
"The activities of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler prior to and during World War II...are instructive. At that time, these three firms dominated motor vehicle production in both the United States and Germany. Due to its mass production capabilities, automobile manufacturing is one of the most crucial industries with respect to national defense. As a result, these firms retained the economic and political power to affect the shape of governmental relations both within and between these nations in a manner which maximized corporate global profits. In short, they were private governments unaccountable to the citizens of any country yet possessing tremendous influence over the course of war and peace in the world. The substantial contribution of these firms to the American war effort in terms of tanks, aircraft components, and other military equipment is widely acknowledged."

Did American Investors and joint ventures with Nazis have responsibility for the Holocaust?
This archival research peoples historian working alongside former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark, who, for decades, has been dedicated to representing victims of the American post-World War II overseas killing machine, expects that the reaction of a good many readers to the affirmation that the 'Holocaust COULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED Without corporate USA rearming Germany to destroy the USSR,' will be one of protest that although the elite of American industrialists did invest in and joint venture with the Nazis, rapidly building their Wehrmacht up to world's number one military force in six years with the collusion of US and European government leaders permitting violation of the prohibitions in the Versailles Treaty,
that these titans of American industry, banking and government could not have imagined or expected Hitler's 1941 orders for the mass murder of all Jews we have come to call the Holocaust.
No! This historian agrees. These wealthiest of investors and bankers on Wall Street and eminent CEOs of America's major corporations could not have foreseen that their empowering Nazi Germany militarily (to attack the Soviet Union) would bring about Hitler's 1941 orders to kill all Jews in Nazi occupied Europe, however they most certainly did know of the vicious, and often murderous, persecution of Jews in Germany that began immediately upon Hitler's accession to power in 1933.

The root of anti-Jewish talk and discrimination in the US was located in the same void of morals and absence of humanity found in the divide-and-conquer profitable genocide for capital acquisition, economic power and domination championed by the basically white protestant Anglo-Saxon investor community of Wall Street and the few other centers of investor power that FDR had noted in a 1932 note to confidant Colonel House "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson."[1]

Though the drive for money and capital accumulation might be paramount there are some other effects of the brutally ignorant white racism so prevalent throughout the subjugated world of imperialist empires, which are worth noting for being especially strong in America during the time of Hitler's rule of Germany and his coming to command the world's strongest military because of the massive investments of Americans.
Hitler proudly told his comrades just how closely he followed the progress of the American eugenics movement. "I have studied with great interest," he told a fellow Nazi, "the laws of several American states concerning prevention of reproduction by people whose progeny would, in all probability, be of no value or be injurious to the racial stock." Hitler even wrote a fan letter to American eugenic leader Madison Grant calling his race-based eugenics book, The Passing of the Great Race his "bible."
Eugenics would have been so much bizarre parlor talk had it not been for extensive financing by corporate philanthropies, specifically the Carnegie Institution, the Rockefeller Foundation and the Harriman railroad fortune. They were all in league with some of America's most respected scientists hailing from such prestigious universities as Stamford, Yale, Harvard, and Princeton. These academicians espoused race theory and race science, and then faked and twisted data to serve eugenics' racist aims. [See: The Horrifying American Roots of Nazi Eugenics By Edwin Black [ ] .us/articles/1796.html]"-
"In 1904, the Carnegie Institution had established a laboratory complex at Cold Spring Harbor on Long Island that stockpiled millions of index cards on ordinary Americans, as researchers carefully plotted the removal of families, bloodlines and whole peoples. From Cold Spring Harbor, eugenics advocates agitated in the legislatures of America, as well as the nation's social service agencies and associations. The Rockefeller Foundation helped funded the German eugenics program and even funded the program that Josef Mengele worked in before he went to Auschwitz.
Even the United States Supreme Court endorsed aspects of eugenics. In its infamous 1927 decision, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, "It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind". Three generations of imbeciles are enough."Most of the 'inferior' people sterilized in America in the name of racial purity were in fact simply the uneducated poor. This decision opened the floodgates for thousands to be coercively sterilized or otherwise persecuted as subhuman. Years later, the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials quoted Holmes's words in their own defense. (Yet a tv crew that went back decades later and interviewed the offspring of couples where sterilizations were unsuccessful showed that the offspring appeared to have as good or better intelligence as anyone else.)

Eugenicists across America welcomed Hitler's plans as the logical fulfillment of their own decades of research and effort. California eugenicists republished Nazi propaganda for American consumption. They also arranged for Nazi scientific exhibits, such as an August 1934 display at the L.A. County Museum, for the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association.

In 1934, as Germany's sterilizations were accelerating beyond 5,000 per month, the California eugenics leader C. M. Goethe upon returning from Germany ebulliently bragged to a key colleague, "You will be interested to know, that your work has played a powerful part in shaping the opinions of the group of intellectuals who are behind Hitler in this epoch-making program. Everywhere I sensed that their opinions have been tremendously stimulated by American thought

I appreciate the sincerity and incisiveness of your point of view. I today published another OEN article focused on some other things. I found Prince Charles point of view quite compelling. What do you think of his speech? Is it true that none of these leaders mentioned Viktor Orban of Hungary?

Who were the actual people behind the murders blamed on Nazi Germany? Will we ever know? All USA and Foreign documents older than 75 Years need to released to the public unredacted.

And lest we forget Margaret Sanger:

I am citing this WaPo article because it is actually a rebuttal to a Ben Carson attack on Sanger and Planned Parenthood. But it contains much information about Sanger's views on eugenics that may not be widely known.

There is no doubt that US business enabled the Nazis but they did not pay for the labor. During the depression US, British and French industrial production went down by 25%. German industrial production went up 80%. Labor is the biggest expense. The Nazis did it by creating a new currency that was only usable within the country to pay for labor. That way the parasites on Wall Street and in the City of London could not speculate and drive down the value of the currency like they had with the Weimar Mark.

And of course this article ignores the fact that the Soviets were out producing the Nazis with superior tanks and planes right from the beginning. Russia was and still is the richest nation in the world in terms of the basic resources necessary to maintain a modern economy. During the Great Depression Soviet industrial production increased by 400% with little to no input from any capitalist country. The Ruble was not traded internationally so the Soviets somehow managed to do what they did to defeat Nazis without much help.

The Banksters that control our education at the highest levels have managed to blinker the most intelligent to the power of interest free publicly created money. After all most wealth lies in labor. You have but to pay for it.

Good article about Wall Street and the Nazis.


One wonders why the Auschwitz anniversary was held in Jerusalem, and of the liberation of the concentration camps, why was Auschwitz so special compared to the others. Was this because it gave the opportunity to send the message the Jews count for far more than the other victims of the Holocaust, who were roughly half of the total? Or, was it really a celebration of the current anti-Muslim wars, that may have killed more people in Muslim countries in the last four decades than Jews in died in the Holocaust?


What happened in the Nazi era is history; the Nazis are gone, and neo-Nazis exist but do not have power. The Muslim wars are continuing history, and those continuing them have power and super-majority support in several of the most powerful countries in the world.

This is the intro I added when I linked this article on my FB wall.

Before they were ever "arsenals of democracy," Ford and GM (and Wall Street investment bankers and other industrial and chemical giants) were arsenals of fascism, setting up the Germans for an eventual invasion and hoped for defeat of Soviet Russia. It's a phenomenon that makes wars possible, in the first place. Astronomically sized piles of money, like the brooms in the old Disney cartoon, "Fantasia," start out as useful tools people use. But when they get past a certain, incredibly huge size, they grow so large they must be protected from any possible external threat; no matter how many lives have to be sacrificed by citizens of that country. (Foreigner's lives arent even counted. They're just collateral damage, random numbers in a tabulation.) That even extends to the *reducio ad absurdam* of the same investors, working for the best interests of the same astronomically sized pile of money, funding arms sales to the combatants on both sides of an armed conflict. For example, what happened in Syria not long ago when the Pentagon was paying for salaries and guns and munitions for a militia group fighting against U.S. Intelligence agency troops.
