The book you are about to read is one of the most extraordinary historical documents of the 20th century. Prominent Nazi Franz von Papen wrote in his Memoirs « …the most documented account of the National Socialists’ sudden acquisition of funds was contained in a book published in Holland in 1933… under the name ‘Sidney Warburg.’ The book cited by von Papen is the one your are about to read ! Where did Hitler get the funds and the backing to achieve power in 1933 Germany ? Did these funds come only from prominent German bankers and industrialists or did funds also come from American bankers and industrialists ? This book will answer your questions. Sydney Warburg has met with obscure bankers all his life, as he claims. The book was purged. Every copy – except three accidental survivors – was taken out of the bookstores and off the shelves. The book and its story were silenced – almost… One of the three surviving copies found its way to England, translated into English and deposited in the British Museum. This copy and the translation were later withdrawn from circulation, and are presently « unavailable » for research. The second Dutch language copy was acquired by Chancellor Schussnigg of Austria. The third Dutch survivor found its way to Switzerland and in 1947 was translated into German, then into English. It is this translation that you will read here !
