They Profited From the Holocaust
mass murder of six million European Jews is constantly assigned to “The
Nazis.” The phrase “Nazi” is not a word, but two syllables of four letters
derived from the German word “Nazional,”
which is spelled national in English. Hitler’s political party was
called Nazionalsozialistische Deutsche
Arbeiterpartei, or National Socialist German
attributing the slaughter of millions to “The Nazis,” the Germans and others
who benefited from these horrors
covered up their involvement in the persecution of the Jews.
American corporation IBM profited immensely from the mass murders organized by
Hitler and his cohorts. The president of IBM, Thomas Watson, traveled to Berlin
to meet with Hitler. He told Hitler that IBM could help him to round up all
European Jews destined for slaughter in death camps. IBM had acquired the rights
to produce the so-called Hollerith machine, named after its inventor, Herman
Hollerith, an American technician. That machine could be used to segregate Jews
from any census of the population, so that the killers would not miss the
numerous Jews not affiliated with a congregation or whose congregation was too
small to be listed anywhere. There can be no doubt that Watson became a mass
murderer when he explained to Hitler how the punch card system worked, making it
certain that all Jews could be identified. The
Hollerith machines were the forerunner of the modern computer and very
continued to supply Hitler with the Hollerith machines even after the United
States entered the Second World War.
corporation which made huge profits from killing Jews was Topf & Sons, a
German business that made gas ovens used for cooking meat. This company won the
contract to construct gas ovens used to kill Jews in death camps. They earned
millions selling their ovens to the Nazi government .
The Krupp Steel Works, a German manufacturer of military equipment, used
thousands of Jewish slave laborers to produce guns, tanks, rifles, ammunition,
and other war equipment for the German armed forces. The Jews were worked as
close to around the clock as physically possible. They worked seven days a week
with very little food until they died from exhaustion. Numerous other German
factories also used Jewish slave labor.
Then there was the Christian population of Germany and all occupied countries invaded by German armies. Here the local populations, particularly the Poles, stole all the possessions of the murdered Jews by ransacking the homes of the departed Jews. These Christian believers, called “Aryans,” proved that Jews are money mad by searching through the homes of the dead Jews for money, jewelry, art , furniture, bedding, kitchen utensils, clothes, and the car in the driveway, and stealing it all until there wasn’t anything left. The empty houses were then auctioned off by the local Nazi bosses to the highest bidder. To this day, large numbers of Europeans live in houses which once belonged to the murdered Jews, from France to Russia and from Norway to Italy.
the war years, the German government, i.e. Hitler, deposited a great amount of
confiscated Jewish bank accounts and art into Swiss bank accounts. The Germans
meant to recover these accounts after winning the war, which they lost. The
surviving relatives of the murdered Jews therefore demanded that the Swiss banks
return this huge treasure to the Jewish families whose relatives had been
murdered. To this day the Swiss banks have kept all the Nazi gold and refuse to
release the stolen money.
are today, all over Europe, inhabitants of erstwhile German occupied countries,
who live in stolen houses with stolen furniture, stolen land, and stolen art.
beneficiaries of the persecution of the European
Jews were all those who got the jobs from which Jews had been expelled
even before the mass murders. All Jews were forced out of the civil service, and
out of teaching in schools, from kindergarten to universities. All Jewish
lawyers, doctors, and other licensed professions were handed to “Aryans” as
the Jews were murdered. Even traveling salesmen and all other occupations were
made “Judenrein,” i.e. “cleansed of Jews.”
the numerous ocean liners that transported Jews fleeing from the German killers
made money selling travel needs.
, those of us who reached the United States and gained all the advantages of an
American life will always be grateful to “Shem Yisborach” and those who
helped us for the privilege of living in America.
Nevertheless, it cannot be overlooked that many Americans forced the
poorest of the refugees to labor in their businesses and factories for below
minimum wages because the refugees had no choice other than to accept any job,
however underpaid and overworked they were.
more people around the world profited from the persecution of the European Jews.
These profiteers and their descendants still enjoy the benefits of murdering
