Banking With Hitler

Banking With Hitler371 Swiss banks stand accused of collaborating with the Nazis during World War II. This was suspected at the time by by U.S. Secretary of Treasury Henry Morgenthau, who began investigating this collaboration. He found the Swiss were not alone. His archives reveal that both British and American bankers continued to do business with Hitler, even as Germany was invading Europe and bombing London.

This investigative film shows in detail the roles played by the Anglo-German banking clique. Key members of the Bank of England together with their German counterparts established the BIS, the Bank for International Settlement, which laundered the plundered gold of Europe. On its board were key Nazis such as Walther Funk and Hjalamar Schact The president of BIS was an American, Thomas McKittrick, who readily socialized with leading Nazis. Not only the BIS, but other allied banks worked hand in hand with the Nazis. One of the biggest American banks kept a branch open in Occupied Paris and, with full knowledge of the managers in the U.S., froze the accounts of French Jews. Deprived of money to escape France, many ended up in death camps.

When Pres. Roosevelt died in April 1945, Morgenthau lost his protector and his crusade against the banks came to an end. He was further weakened when men in his department were accused of being Communists during the McCarthy era. This incredible story contains interviews with surviving members of banking families and Morgenthau's investigative team as well as newly found archive material.

    Nazi banking ............ yet no mention of Grand Pa Bush - wonder who sponsored this "doc"

  2. Justin_Funski

    Whatever the schemes were, NAZI Germany required huge amounts of money to re-arm and wage war and I think they stole money from wherever they could down to killing Jews and transferring their personal belongings to the Reich. I have no doubt that the Allies were sold down the river by the banks as well since their only loyalty is to money.

  3. Matt Kukowski

    What people have to understand is that people are not entirely motivated by money. All the inventions of the world that are worth a damn were made from human curiosity and NOT money.

    ** If you have the brains YOU USE THEM! Money does _NOT_ give you brains.**

    So, my point is that, Money is the greatest HOAX of all man kinds inventions. Bias, racism, hatred, greed, sexual urges and etc are all causes to institute a concept called MONEY or CURRENCY.

    But, since we live in a world where even 4000+ years ago and counting were the weak are exploited and bad values passed down (by blaming each other for NATURAL DISASTERS and such created by the 'GODS') has made it a nessesity to have money to deal with each other.

    But, it is just a hoax of the mind, this money. If you helped the weak and used your Brains to do good and through away all the things that make humankind act like ANIMALS, you would not need this Hoax to Control people.

    If you can not understand this, I urge you to keep with the struggle to learn and stay ahead of the pack. Not through muscle but through brain power.

    Good luck.

  4. Matt Kukowski

    Think about what you just said, "Banking is all about making money."

    This is true. Therefore the largest HOAX that man kind has yet devised. You can not 'MAKE' money... money is just a concept. And this is what Banksters know about but do not openly share. Why? Because it is a perfect hoax to keep in control with no effort at all.

    See my comment below for more details.

    So? There're still in the USA, aren't they? I'm surprised... Athough, this doc doesn't tell tell anything 'bout the late Bush Sr. & his bank deals with the NAZI.


  6. Jakob Isindahowz

    Perhaps I'm wrong,but I thought Germany got most of it money from the US to rebuild after WW1. Much like Japan after WW2. however, I take all historic "information" with a very large grain of salt as history tends to be written by those who win wars.

    @Jakob Isindahowz

    That docu is a lit'le old. And a bit biaised since the author doesn't say a word 'bout G.W. Bush grand father.
    May you note the word "Bush" can be as German as English?

    Beside, if one consider the standard of living there was in the USA at the end of WWI, the american nation didn't had much to back up another country. More over, when it comes to any sort of public manifestation boiling up to actions mingling with sedition, it justs ought t be because a nation is not busy at working for a better life.
    This phenomenon is much more powerfull than any "Propaganda".

    If study the social currents and melting-pot in Germany after WWI, it really more than a few years before the bankers became "Money-Thirsty" and started to invest in what the world realised to be the most fruitful business of all time : - "Killing others".

    Before WWI & WWII, humankind used to go to war for beliefs and convictions (See, read "Honor & Principles") but during WWI, one should remember that old monarchies went down.
    In fact, a new era began as humankind realised that killing is a business, who ever God may think, say in the end.

    As "Matt Kukowski" said: -"Banking is all about making money."
    But should have said "Banking is all about waging war".
    An international "Corporate" espacially a bank or banker do have any nationality or intellectual intergrity as other professionnal specialties have. None, what so ever from any & all nations.

    This is today's trend.


  8. Joe Marquis

    This doc didn't mentin Prescot Bush once.....this entire doc is BS.....

  9. Tracy Klatke

    Very interesting comments here.

  10. Tracy Klatke

    Yes, this is really old and typical H channel - I'm bored already and NOT going to watch. There's got to be something better than this.


    This doc is blatent anti-British bs via re-editing.

    The original doc, not this usa-friendly edited version, mentioned the usa's role in funding hitler via Wall Street.

    Read "Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler" by Sutton for more details.

    In order to claw the crippled usa out of the Depression, Wall Street criminals and leading americans companies, banks and financiers pumped millions of dollars toward "the next leader of Europe" and his murderers.

    These american traitors and criminals even managed to prevent u.s. airforce bombing raids on american assets in occupied Europe that were doing nazi war work and SHOULD have been bombed to ashes. Daylight bombing raids, which killed thousands of american airmen in the useless deathtrap "Flying Fortresses" those same criminals manufactured, were partly done so that american assets in Europe; factories, goods in warehouses and fixed assets, could be more easily identified in daytime and not bombed.

    These american nazis were never tracked down and executed post-WWII as they instantly became 'good americans' again at the war's end.

    The usa was NOT an ally of the UK before joining the war.

    The aviation fuel in the nazi planes that bombed 60,000 British citizens to death in The Blitz was american. Those bombers were built in american-owned European factories, using machine tools from the usa and american raw marterials... who kept in commerical contact EVEN during the war!

    YOU may have conveniently forgotten this, americans. Some of us still bear a grudge.

    Do not talk of 'the american ally' in some parts of my country!

    I lost familiy members in the Blitz!

    Why do you think Henry Ford was given a medal by hitler?
    IGFaben had american factories.

    As an american, you will disbelieve me... so why not read the Report of the Congressional KILLGORE COMMITTEE that is freely available and wonder why the american traitors weren't brought to justice at the time!
    The murdered get no justice in america where dollar bills are involved!

    The usa is NOT the nation that won WWII... it is the nation that largely paid to start it and then benefited from it!

    See world's reserve currency and the bankrupting of the UK during, post-WWII and the accumulation of american assets in Europe post-1945 for more details!

    Anytime you want to apologize... feel free!

  12. vvindred

    i totally agree!

  13. Joe Steffen

    The exact same movie can be made about the Israelis/Jews: who have exercized genocide (Holocaust) against the Palestinians. The Jews have prosecuted any organization, person, etc. and used "unlawful disenfranchisement" as a weapon in their damage reparation lawsuits. But when the shoe is on the other foot: the Palestinians do not count. What a bunch of hypocrits.

  14. Joe Steffen

    Uhh. I don't think anybody's army stepped on German land during the entire period (WW1). So no funding for building anything was needed. After WW1, Germany was sued for reparations that nearly bankrupted the country. They also forfeited the Saarbrucken/Alsatian region to France, at that time.

  15. Ken Driessen

    I spent several years studying how Hitler, a Van Gogh wannabe who wrote a stupid biggoted Mine Kompf book came to power. I already knew the answer has to do with money, yeah ZioNazi money at that. This movie proves exactly what ZioNazi means. Every person in the world should be required to watch this movie until the ZioNazi banksters are diven from power. Until the Federal Reserve Synagogue of Satan owners are jailed for crimes against humanity.

    the most terrifying thing is,these people havnt been stopped. they run nato now. and they havnt even changed their tactics. talking about the stealing of austrias gold reminded me of libya.

  17. Andrea Psoras

    NATO was set up by policy makers controlled here by the 1% and the European royals and to create their balance of power/new world order-one world order and divide up the world and its rsources among themselves. One of their ways to achieve this - aka nato although said to keep the US 'in' the Russians 'out' and the Gemans 'down' understand the europeans waged war as a business. Consolidating land is connected to business and for the vatican which after the reformation lurked off the radar screen.

    Smedley Butler "War is a Racket" in effect is informing the reader about the way that or that war lines the pockets of corporate and commercial interests. that there were americans however who hated that and decried it and that's why after rockefeller functionaries (and the 1% here were beguled by the nazi Psychological operation targeted on them by the 3rd/4th reich to continue to wage war on the US, Russia and Britain after the military war part of WW2 was done and the german military was forced into unconditional surrender while the nazi party and the german government were not forced into unconditional surrender) sancturied nazi scientists and top nazi spy Reinhard gehlen to start the Cia and nsa. but that's why morganthau and some of his people were accused of being communists to deflect attention from their nazi OPs here like 'coldwar' and the attempt to thwart tracking nazi money. there also were the bushs and others that had done business before and during WW2 and managed money for them etc. so see it from the way the royals there and the 1% here with our constitution breached and not reestablished after the Civil war here which the british and french were partly responsible with our 1%, but it took a faustian pact to keep them out of the Civil war. it cost us our 13th amendment and actually our Constitution. We've been under ad hoc gov to enable the corporates and the 1% and the foreign royals to interfere in our society, our land and our resources.

    the 'money' or another way to describe the world's financial system in part is the arteries for their way to hive assets away from the hands of the many, into the hands of the few. it is a system of unjust weights, it also is a system they still use for themselves. but God isnt mocked. See Daniel 8:23-25 adn and Jeremiah ch 22-24 where God tells Jeremiah that the nations God will make drink of the cup of wrath and again that's also the Last book of the Bible, the Revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ

    Money Money Money... RBE now!!! Evidence is all over the place, money is the root of every single problem in this planet.


    Simpsons seems more like you style...keep drinking your fluoride.

  20. jason smith

    I gotta disagree with the daylight bombing... The airforce commander at the time called for way more planes than he was given. The navy wanted some, the British got some, etc. etc. The dayight bombing also was to prevent from just carpet bombing all of the civillians, and instead hit more of the military targets. Precision bombing vs. carpet bombing.

  21. greatfyl

    You can thank Winston Churchill for having your ancestors bombed
    in the blitz. Churchill used the english people as hostages in order to bring USA into the war. The germans had no interest in bombing civilians. They wanted to damage the production of fighter planes. One german bomber lost its way and dropped the bombs on the wrong spot. Something Winston used as an excuse to bomb civilians in Berlin
    Where after the germans began doing the same.
    It was not difficult for the otherwise so skilled english analysts to determine that the initial incident was indeed a mistake. Winston had a very good chance of avoiding the blitz.

    Moreover the elites of England were very deeply involved in provoking both world wars which. Lord Balford was very explicit. The motive was that germany was to be prevented from forming a mutually beneficial alliance with Russia. Something the MI6 'op' Halford Mackinder had in a sense outlined already in 1904.

  22. Christian Hartmeyer

    Thank Henry Ford for all the vehicles Germany had to invade Poland from Sep. 1. 1939 and Hugo Boss for the Uniforms, right down to the design of the SS Uniform = Hugo Boss in person.

  23. Astraea Shaw

    This film is mostly UNTRUE so far as I can tell.

    WW2 was caused by these very bvanksters who could not stand Germany being independent of them - Hitler saved Germany from the Weimar horror by having Germany create and make use of it's own money - FREE OF USURY.

    The only reason they are threatening Iran bnow is because Iran refuses to be caught in their net - the net with which they strangle us all.

    This film is dishonest. I suggest for anyone who does like the truth that you read some truthful history such as "Hitler Democrat." by General Leon Degrelle, or listen in to wonderful broadcasts by Deann Spingola.

    Degrelle's book is the first I have ever read about WW2 and I was so astounded that I have been reading more - and I can assure you all that we have been duped, fooled, used, and what we did to Germany is beyond horror.

    We need to understand all this for our own sakes and our children, the future. We really do need to know the truth so that we cannot be fooled and USED ever again.

    There is LOT to learn. I very much hope that the people of Russia face up to the truth about Stalin before it is too late.

    We all have to get out of the trap of the banksters who have been treating us all like poor pathetic fools who they think are incapable of understand what they are doing and have done for centuries.

    Putin could take a leaf out of Hitler's book! He seems to love his country just as Hitler loved his - and gave his life for.

    Hitler was not at all the way we have been told!

  24. jim

    you could not be more wrong

  25. jim

    money = corruption.......humans are VERY easily corrupted.

  26. Dominus_Venturae

    Money free from riba/usury/interest will free the world from the bankers. The truth needs to be told; we have been infiltrated by agents who want the new world order to happen with them on top and the rest of us slaves. The money scam that has been going on has been done for thousands of years, but with this new group applying it for the past four centuries. Our taxes go to preserve the power structure they developed. We need to get rid of the federal reserve and income tax. We need to help the rest of the world end the BIS and IMF to help other countries not get into this mess either. Then make a constitution for the earth declaring in the first amendment that USURY IS FORBIDDEN. It makes a few people very powerful and slowly gain control of everything. If they are smart they will control all news and media so no one will question and then begin to take over every main commodity. They use the money to get richer and richer. Join the cause and instate money free from interest, like Hitler, Lincoln, and John F. Kennedy tried before. This is the reason why we go to war with countries, to enslave them in the debt ring that is controlled by the few. Libya, Syria, Iran, North Korea have been the few countries free from their control. Hopefully this list will grow and not shrink. I ask of everyone to research this subject, because without this scam we can be free and grow as fast as the Germans did from hyperinflation to world power. Right now we are restricted and funding them to stay powerful during the transitions. Be free.

  27. deadeyez187

    hitler was also a jew. the nazis were all AshkeNAZI jews. the pows they had in the work camps were all russians. SEE WHAT THIS AMERICAN GAS CHAMBER EXPERT HAS TO SAY ABOUT IT. His name is Fred Leuchter

  28. deadeyez187

    google american
    gas chamber expert Fred Leuchter

  29. dewfall

    Morning deadeyez, maybe Google has you in a Search Bubble? You should try reading the Wiki Page on the Leuchter Report. Fred and his evidence were dismissed from the trial (distribution of holocaust denial material) of Ernst Z√ľndel. He's a nasty, weasely little man! I think there's a doc here somewhere called Mr Death, The Rise And Fall of Fred Leuchter. You might like to watch that before you find yourself embrangled in his lies ;)

  30. BO_stinks

    not many american banks did, it's like looking at the gnat and ignoring the big redwood in your eye. Soviets helped Germany far more and in fact starved millions to help feed the nazis.

  31. BO_stinks

    Soros on the other hand did help the Nazis and today dictates liberal policies.

  32. joeysnow

    This is ridiculous but not surprising. Immorality never stops greed in any form. These guys must have known what they were doing and who they were supporting was awful but they did it anyway. Regulation and fear of prison time is the only thing that can stop the ruthless bankers. Its amazing to me how blind people can become when they are making money.

  33. anastasius

    No lies from Fred Leuchter. His examination of the alleged gas chambers yielded results consistent with reality. The lies you speak of remains the exclusive domain of those continuing the myth about the gas chambers.

  34. a_no_n

    oh dear...another brainwashed Fox News acolyte who thinks the Nazi's were liberals.

  35. a_no_n

    yeah i found it among nestled among thousands of other pages showing actual physical evidence of the existence of those gas chambers...but i'm sure you've got a very good reason for why you cherrypick around all of them.

  36. a_no_n

    obvious troll is obvious

  37. a_no_n

    i live in a city that was heavily bombed by the Luftwaffe.

    The ENTIRE city was carpet bombed. they were not making any distinction between targets...they COULDN'T make those distinctions with the technology that was available at the time. it just isn't possible.

    Your Nazi Sympathising is in incredibly bad taste!

  38. a_no_n

    "Before WW1 People went to war for beliefs and convictions"

    No it was mostly over land and resources.
    Rose tinted spectacles are not the most accurate things to wear when looking at history.

  39. James Wilson

    Where was Prescot Bush's crimes with NAZI Germany and Hitler at?

    Congress had to step in to stop Bush from helping Hitler even after the war had begun!

    Power, Greed and Lust for either and/or both, is a deep and pervasive sin that runs in the ruling elite who see 99% of humanity as just pieces to be used and played with at their will, regardless of consequences to the people that are not in their social stratosphere and they get away with it time and again regardless of the evidence of crime and even treason!

    Land of Counterfeit Heros who claim to be modern gladiators but prance on a manicured fields and a Society of Narcissism masquerading as charity at Gala's with each person wearing enough diamonds to exceed a small nation's GDP.
