GREAT SECRETS OF THE
20th CENTURY Part Two

by Sherman H. Skolnick


Adolph Hitler was joined at the hip with American big business jointly with the British royal family. They financed him as a bulwark, they thought, against the Soviets. The Moscow government was perceived by them as a great threat to the West.

The British royals were and are heavily German and were originally Von Battenberg. Following World War One, they changed their name to the House of Windsor, which sounds harmless. King Edward 8th abdicated the throne in the 1930s with the cover story that he wanted to marry a commoner. In fact, it was because he was very pro-Hitler and this would cause trouble with war clouds gathering. As the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, they lived mostly in the Bahamas, and he was the Governor there. He treasonously permitted Nazi U-boats to refuel there and be able to sink U.S. and British ships. After all, the British royal family was tied to the Nazis. See: John L. Spivak's book, "Secret Armies, The New Techniques of Nazi Warfare" [Starling Press, N.Y. N.Y., 1939], pages 17-30.

World War Two started when the Germans invaded Poland, September, 1939. Three weeks AFTER that, Rockefeller's Standard Oil of New Jersey and the German chemical octopus, I.G. Farben, made an unholy deal to share patents, royalties, and deals all during the war via neutral South American countries like Columbia. To make it seem legal, they arranged to fraudulently back-date the deal to THREE WEEKS BEFORE THE WAR STARTED. Who brokered and arranged this? Why, Joseph P. Kennedy, the pro-Hitler U.S. Ambassador to London until October, 1940, and "Founding Father" of the Kennedy clan. See: "The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben" by Joseph Borkin. I.G. Farben had a secret arrangement with the top U.S. Military brass, not to bomb any of Farben's facilities during the war. At the close of the conflict, Farben's facilities were 93 per cent untouched and intact.

A U.S. Military officer wrote a heavily documented account of Farben being not bombed. See: the book "I.G. Farben" by Richard Sasuly, Boni & Gaer Publ., N.Y. N.Y, 1947.

With Joseph P. Kennedy having a strong financial link to Hollywood, he ORDERED some 50 of the leading screenwriters NOT to write anything about the Nazi concentration camps. See: Ben Hecht's book, "Child of the Century", Simon & Schuster, N.Y. N.Y., 1954, page 520.

"The Cliveden set" of the British aristocracy wanted peace and collaboration with the Nazis. [Jacqueline Bouvier Auchincloss Kennedy's family were close to that group.] Hitler's top aide, Rudolph Hess flew to Scotland on a peace mission shortly after the war started. He was murdered by British Intelligence on behalf of the anti-Cliveden set and a double inserted instead. That double for Rudolph Hess was designated a war criminal after World War Two and was kept in Spandau Prison until he was way past 90 years of age. He was never allowed to write anything down or communicate with anyone. Hess's wife once proclaimed it was not her husband that was in jail because the jail inmate did not have her husband's tell-tale battle scar from World War One. To protect the secret about the peace overture, British Intelligence murdered the Hess double in jail.

In 1962, after Joseph P. Kennedy's son, John F. Kennedy, had become President, the President and his brother, Robert F. Kennedy, as U.S. Attorney General, arranged for hundreds of millions of dollars of Nazi alien property, still in the hands of the U.S. Government, to be returned to Nazi war criminals by way of a Swiss front, Interhandel. See: New York Times, September 21, 22, and 24, 1964.

Some contend these treasonous dealings by the Kennedys justified the "patriotic" political assassinations of President Kennedy, and then later, his brother Bobby, each murder falsely blamed on a "lone assassin". How far into the next century will one have to wait for the truth? The American CIA has used dozens of Nazi war criminals as consultants, particularly on how to cover up political murders and how to snuff out material eyewitnesses to the same.

A magazine called "The National Tattler",before they ceased publication, had a hard-hitting story, February 22, 1976, showing how Nazi war criminals after World War Two, run an international secret police group called Interpol, which specializes in hunting for people with Jewish surnames, often fingering them for minor offenses. In the 1970s, in Chicago, Cook County Undersheriff, Ross V. Randolph, was Interpol's key man in the Windy City. For many years, holding a top Post-War position also with Nazi-war-criminal-run Interpol, was FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

As we stated in Part One of "Great Secrets of the 20th Century", "1912- the Britibsh ship TITANIC sunk moreso from an internal explosion in the coal bunker than from hitting an iceberg. Those who produced the most recent version of the movie "Titanic", viewed, in a special submarine, the remains of the ship on the bottom of the Atlantic, off of Newfoundland. They reportedly noticed the side of the ship showed there had been a massive internal explosion in the vicinity of the coal bunker. Was it sabotage? Knowledgeable sources contend the ship, on its maiden voyage, had been the target of blackmail and espionage intrigue implicating England and Germany....The movie producers, in a re-make of a prior movie on the Titanic sinking, spent some 200 million dollars in the production. They were not about to risk that by raising the questions of the internal explosion requiring a revision of history books."

Some believe the Titanic was purposely steered into an iceberg in a vain attempt to save the huge ship after a mysterious explosion in the coal bunkers, for which the British quietly blamed the Germans. British Intelligence returned the favor 25 years later by sabotaging the German dirigible, "Hindenburg", the largest rigid airship ever constructed. It was of conventional Zeppelin design. In 1936, the Hindenburg inaugurated commercial air service across the North Atlantic by carrying over one thousand passengers on ten scheduled round trips between Germany and the U.S.

On May 6, 1937, while landing at Lakehurst, New Jersey, the Hindenburg burst into flames and was completely destroyed, killing 36 of the 97 onboard. It had been inflated with highly volatile hydrogen gas. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his business cronies had an armlock monopoly control on the relatively safe lighter-than-air gas, helium, produced in the U.S. but not made available to the Germans.

Even the British Encyclopaedia Britannica raised the question that the Hindenburg may have been the victim of sabotage. [Online, under the title "Hindenburg", you can see it as www.britannica.com]

In December, 1941, the U.S. entered World War Two when Germany declared war on U.S. The pro-Hitler Mellon family of Pittsburgh, and their Aluminum Company of America, ALCOA, for 6 months thereafter refused to step up aluminum production urgently needed for production of U.S. warplanes. Rockefellers' Standard Oil of New Jersey, tied to I.G. Farben by patent deals, treasonously refused to go into synthetic rubber production needed after Japan's invasion of Southeast Asia and such, cutting off natural rubber production. Rockefeller did not want to violate the arrangement with Farben, war or no war. Other firms had to hurry-up development of a synthetic rubber by a different method, in effect, having to re-invent the wheel because of Rockefellers treachery.

See: "Patents for Hitler", by Guenther Reimann [Vanguard Press, N.Y.N.Y., 1942, pages 45-62.] Some in the U.S. mass media, such as the Chicago Tribune, were tied to Hitler and the Nazis. As shown by George Seldes' book in 1943, "Facts and Fascism", pages 212-228 [In Fact, Inc., N.Y., 1943.] The Chicago Tribune during the War defied warimte censorship and endangered American troops by printing U.S. military secrets.

In the 1970s, boss of both the Chicago Sun-Times and sister publication Chicago Daily News [now defunct], was James Hogue, Jr. His father had been the key lawyer representing the left-overs of Nazi war industry. In the law library you can look up: Farbenfabriken Bayer, A.G. versus Sterling Drug, Inc., Volume 148 Federal Supplement, at page 735. Hogue's predecessor as boss when the two papers were owned by Field Enterprises was the reputed pro-Hitler Bailey K. Howard [his middle name tied to Nazi industry].

In the main ballroom of one of the older hotels, downtown Chicago, in 1976, I conducted the first major seminar in the U.S. about Nazi war criminals living quietly and secretly in the U.S. with the blessings of the American CIA and U.S.Military Intelligence. For that purpose I had scoured bookstores all over and gathered together a huge collection of little-known books on the subject. Strange, but the Jewish aristocracy which got along well with Hitler in Nazi Germany and with pro-Nazi big business in the U.S., boycotted my seminar and tried to blockade my efforts. About the same time, when Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal from Austria visited Chicago and was to hold a press conference, look what happened.

The press conference was to be held in what was then named, the downtown building called the "Covenant Club", a key word in Judaism and the Old Testament. That same aristocracy arranged with top Chicago police officials to remove me under threat of arrest. Yet, I had not yet, outside the door of the press conference, uttered a single word, not even "hello". With the police brass, a young Rabbi came alongside my wheelchair, and said "Shush, don't say a single word, Mr. Skolnick, go with the police." I whispered, "Rabbi, why is this happening to me? I am one of the most well-informed on Nazi war criminals in the U.S." He simply repeated, "Mr.Skolnick, do not say a single word, go with the police officials."

A friend of Simon Wiesenthal, who knew me, arranged for him to call me and I taped an interview with him. "Mr. Skolnick, I am not in charge of these arrangements", Wiesenthal said. I responded, "Mr. Wiesenthal, your local people wanted to put me in jail just for being there. I had not uttered a single word to anyone. Why?" He answered, "I am sorry this happened, Mr. Skolnick." I asked what I thought was a proper and good question from a knowledgeable researcher like me, "Mr Wiesenthal, is it true that you are close to the British royal family and German royalty, and aided the OSS and CIA?" And he sheepishly answered, "Mr. Skolnick, it is true but I cannot go into that, I am a guest in your country." The OSS pre-dated the CIA.

While in Chicago, Mr. Wiesenthal was set to speak at a large synagogue. A reliable source called me in advance to tell me, "Mr. Skolnick, I happen to know, if you so much as show your face anywhere near that synagogue, a large contingent of police has already been alerted to arrest you." Anguished, I asked "Why is this happening?" And he responded, "Sherman, you are unacceptable to the aristocracy and you know it." I discussed with him the strange situation. A former Justice Department official was offering me the current names and addresses of thousands of Nazi war criminals living in the U.S., many in violation of immigration laws. He wanted, however, four and a half thousand dollars for the data. I had contacted an official of the B'Nai B'Rith who I knew. I was shocked to be told that the top brass of that purported Jewish organization did not wish such a list to be made public. So, instead, the Chicago Tribune paid the price, obtained the secret list, and buried the story.

Penthouse Magazine, May, 1976, told about top officials of DuPont and General Motors being tied to Hitler and the Nazis. Anthony Sutton, in his heavily documented book, "Wall St. and the Rise of Hitler", shows how General Electric sponsored Hitler in 1933. During World War Two, General Electric's plants in Nazi Germany were immune from bombing. So, at the end of the war, the Germans had no shortage of electrical equipment. Who arranged that immunity with the top brass of the U.S. Military?

And the Jesuits helped Nazi war criminals escape using, for example, Vatican passports. See: the book, "Aftermath" by Ladislas Farago, Avon Books [[paperback], 1975, pages 185-186, 184-187. And then there is the book by John Cornwell, "Hitler's Pope, the Secret History of Pius XII", Penguin Putnam, Inc., N.Y. N.Y.,1999. The highly secretive German firm, Bertelsmann AG, and their global media empire, includes Random House, Bantam Doubleday Dell, and reportedly they are sizeable owners of American Online, known as AOL.COM, the online service. As stated in Nation Magazine, November 8, 1999, "Contrary to the company's official history, Bertelsmann cooperated with the Nazis in the late thirties and early forties, publishing a range of Hitlerian propaganda [see Hersch Fischler and John Friedman, "Bertelsmann's Nazi Past", December 28, 1998."

Notice this strange situation: The Bertelsmann Foundation is closely linked to Bertelsmann AG. As the Nation Magazine stated in the same article, "On October 30 in Atlanta, the Anti-Defamation League, self-described as the world's leading organization against anti-Semitism, will honor the Bertelsmann Foundation". ADL is part of B'Nai B'Rith. Bertelsmann Foundation donated about one million dollars to ADL.

In 1970, I tried, to no avail, to expose ADL as spying on fellow Jews and others in the Peace Movement FOR FBI. That was before public access Cable TV, before Internet, before widespread talk radio. In more recent years, in and out of Courts, ADL has been exposed as primarily an apparent spy operation.

Another very deep, dark secret of the 20th Century, is how some Chief Rabbis---certainly not all of them---operated in countries around Nazi Germany. In Poland, for example, these purported holymen were the community bankers. The ordinary people not having local banks available, such as in the U.S., they entrusted them with their money and valuables. And these Chief Rabbis, too often, told their people, after the invasion by the Germans, after 1939, "Shush, quiet, say nothing, get on the train. The Germans want you to work on the farm".

The ordinary Jews were fed these fairy tales. The trains took them to places like Auschwitz where many perished, having been worked to death as slave laborers for I.G. Farben and other Nazi indusry. Some concentration camp survivors I have known in Chicago have given me eyewitness accounts. They claim the grandchildren of these Chief Rabbis are big dealers in real estate and other businesses in the Chicago-area, with the treasures stolen by their Chief Rabbi grandfathers from fellow Jews, who naively believed what they were told, and got on the train "for the farm".

"You know who they are! Sue them! Expose them! The hour is late. You are 80 years old. What are you waiting for?" I have pleaded. My offer to volunteer my expertise on legal research has so far not been answered or accepted. In vain, I want this particular Great Secret of the 20th Century to be a matter of undisputed court record.
