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

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!
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.Read more ›
