Editorial Reviews

Review

STUNNING. Backed by exhaustive research, Black's case in IBM and the Holocaust is simple and stunning: that IBM facilitated the identification and roundup of millions of Jews during the 12 years of the Third Reich … Black's evidence may be the most damning to appear yet against a purported corporate accomplice. --Michael Hirsch, Newsweek

DRAMATIC AND LUCID. Lucid, dramatic and thought-provoking discoveries. Astory that should be read by everyone concerned about the strange realities of our modern world. An indispensable contribution. --Martin Gilbert, author A History of the Twentieth Century, Churchill: A Life and First World War

EDWIN BLACK IS A DANGEROUS MAN. Edwin Black is a dangerous man. He tells us things we don't want to hear, like: "The scientific rationales that drove killer doctors at Auschwitz were first concocted on Long Island." His groundbreaking work is scary and necessary. --Adrienne Miller, Esquire Magazine

You will have a few sleepless nights but it will be worth it because you will have a better picture of the world we live in!

This book should be required reading in any high school level "World History" or introductory college level history survey course.

Hard to read and impossible to forget, I strongly recommend Nazi Nexus: America's Corporate Connections to Hitler's Holocaust.

This book should be required reading for many programs (business, medicine, social sciences, etc...). Dr. Black has done an amazing job of summarizing several of his books. After reading Nazi Nexus, you will want to obtain and read some of his books that are more comprehensive. On the emotional side of things, I would also warn professors using this book to spend a little time with students examining the shock many will feel while they read this. My own area is criminal justice and this book would work in many courses, e.g. organized crime, white-collar crime, etc...Dr. Black combines history, sociology, criminology, and economics into an integrated approach that has major implications for future policy. I will be reading War Against the Weak next.

Excellent book. Author has spent years researching how Hitler received help from Americans as well as American corporations. It has taken many years for the truth to be known. Jews living in Europe didn't have a chance.The Nazis had so much help from IBM,Ford, GM and other corporations that its a miracle that more Jews weren't murdered in cold blood.

That's what Adolph was probably singing as he invaded Poland. His friends? Ford, GM, IBM to name a few.

The book may be short, but it is long on information on American businesses involved with Hitler's Germany. I was amazed at how U.S. businesses and Foundations actually made the Nazi war machine not only viable, but also more efficient.

It is truly pathetic how greed trumps ethics. And what is worse is that these corporations like Ford, G.M. and I.B.M. and their CEOs were already wealthy beyond anything imaginable at that time.

One section covers the Nation City Lines conspiracy. It doesn't actually connect to the Nazi nexus, but it just shows how unscrupulous these big U.S. businesses were.

I was not expecting the ending, and it totally took me by surprise. Great book!

This pamphlet should be required reading in all high schools across American. Black brings to the fore the responsibility and complicity of such American icons as Henry Ford and Thomas Watson in what was to become manufactured Hell on earth. Henry Ford in particular is exposed to be the true philosophical father of Nazism just as Thomas Watson is exposed as the architect and engineer of the mass murder factories of the SS. Would the systematic murder of over 10 million Jews, Gypsies, Communists, homosexuals, mentally infirm, and other political and social pariahs have occurred without these two individuals? You be the judge. But one point is indisputable: Ford attempted to vilify and destroy the Jewish race with as mush vehemence as any fanatically National Socialist while Watson stoically provided the technical infrastructure to make mass murder an efficient and, for him, highly profitable enterprise.

This book is a compilation of Edwin Black's investigative journalism and books. It is a must read for anyone looking to become more informed about the inner workings of how the Holocaust was allowed to go on with the assistance of large American corporations and philanthropists who are still industry leaders today. It is all to easy to see the similarities of how we could slip into another situation like this again, regardless of the targeted group. It is a fairly quick read and very informative. You will definitely want to read more...

NAZI NEXUS examines the significant role of iconic American corporations and organizations in both Nazi Germany's build-up for, and execution of, World War II and the Third Reich's systematic murder of so-called "undesirables". It's a topic in which I was interested, but I wasn't sure I wanted to wade through 1500+ pages, which is what it would take to read just 3 of this author's books on which NAZI NEXUS is based. 192 pages was much more like it.

Mr. Black's analysis begins with Henry Ford, the totemic drum major of institutionalized anti-Semiticism. Ford's genius in racism, as well as in business, made him a much-revered figure in Germany where his innovations were given a warm welcome, and his anti-Semitic "gospel" flourished. The next American entity to come under Mr. Black's scrutiny is General Motors, and to a lesser extent, Standard Oil. He illustrates the crucial role of GM in the build-up and maintenance of the Nazi war machine, both in the years leading up to, and during, World War II.

Eugenics is the next target. Early on in its history the sham-science was exported from America to Germany. Even after eugenic pseudo-science was debunked in America and the political-powers-that-be beat a quick retreat, it thrived in the fertile ground of Nazi Germany. NAZI NEXUS examines the intellectual and financial support provided to Germany's eugenics program before and during the war by two of America's most revered philanthropic institutions: the Carnegie Institute and the Rockefeller Foundation.

Lastly, Mr. Black examines IBM's complicity in Hitler's Holocaust. Through every meticulous step of the Final Solution, the Reich came to IBM with its "wish list" and IBM, with no questions asked, delivered a solution that was lethal in its efficiency.
