Nazi Germany was brought to you in part by:
Hugo Boss – made uniforms for the Hitler Youth, stormtroopers and the SS. Used slave labour from France and Poland.
Bertelsmann – published training manuals for military officers and was the biggest producer of Nazi propaganda. Used Jewish slave labour. Currently owns Random House.
Ford Motor Company – made trucks and Jeeps for both sides, making profits both ways! It gets worse: In the 1920s Henry Ford wrote the “The International Jew”, an anti-Semitic book read by Hitler and other future Nazis when Germany was a broken country. Awards: Henry Ford received the Grand Cross of the German Eagle.
IBM – provided the machines Nazi Germany used to track everything, from oil supplies to Jews. IBM even helped them deal with railway traffic in Poland. Awards: Thomas J. Watson, IBM president, received an Order of the German Eagle medal.
ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP – then known as Standard Oil. It provided Nazis the tetraethyl lead gas they needed to get their planes off the ground!

Deutsche Bank – helped to get the money together to build Auschwitz.
Allianz – insured Auschwitz. They paid life insurance benefits of its Jewish customers directly to the Nazis!
Chase – one of the only two American banks opened in France under Nazi occupation (the other was J.P. Morgan). Chase received money from the Nazis knowing it had been stolen from Jews. It froze bank accounts of Jewish customers in Paris before the Nazis even asked them to.
