November 23, 2004 journal, another Holocaust, driving through heavy rain to the coast.

Reported by Clamor Magazine issue 14, May-June 2002 on the Bu-sh-Hitler connection.

"but from men who regarded themselves as cultured and well schooled, modern men, forward looking. Their crime showed the world that evil can slip in and blend in amid the most civilized surroundings. In the end only conscience can stop it." But while President B-u-s-h publicly embraced the community of holocaust survivors in Washington last spring, he and his family have been keeping a secret from them for over 50 years about Prescott Bu-sh, the president's grandfather. According to classified documents from Dutch intellig-ence and US government archives, President George W. B-u-s-h's grandfather, Prescott Bu-sh made considerable profits off Auschwitz slave labor. In fact, President B-u-s-h himself is an heir to these profits from the holocaust which were placed in a blind trust in 1980 by his father, former president George Herbert Walk-er B-u-sh. Throughout the Bu-sh family's de-cades of public life, the American press has gone out of its way to overlook one historical fact - that through Union Banking Corporation (UBC), Prescott Bu-sh, and his father-in-law, George Herbert Walker, along with German industrialist Fritz Thyssen, financed Adolf Hitler before and during World War II. It was first reported in 1994 by John Loftus and Mark Aar-ons in The Secret War Against the Jews: How Western Espionage Betrayed Jewish People.

The US government had known that many American companies were aiding Hitler, like Standard Oil, General Motors and Chase Bank, all of which was sanctioned after Pearl Har-bor. But as The New York Times reporter Charles Higham later discovered, and published in his 1983 groundbreaking book, Trading With The Enemy; The Nazi American Money Plot 1933-1949, "the government smothered everything during and even after the war." Why?

According to Higham, the US government believed "a public scandal ... would have drasti-cally affected public morale, caused widespread strikes and perhaps provoked mutinies in the armed services." Higham claims the government thought "their trial and imprisonment would have made it impossible for the corporate boards to help the American war effort."

However, Prescott B-u-sh's banks were not just financing Hitler as previously reported. In fact, there was a distinct business link much deeper than Mr. Higham or Mr. Loftus knew at the time their books were published. A classified Dutch intelligence file which was leaked by a courageous Dutch intelligence officer, along with newly surfaced information from U.S.

government archives, "confirms absolutely," John Loftus says, the direct links between Bu-sh, Thyssen and genocide profits from Auschwitz. The business connections between Pres-cott B-u-sh and Fritz Thyssen were more direct than what has been previously written. This new information reveals how Prescott B-u-sh and UBC, which he managed directly, profited from the Holocaust. A case can be made that the inheritors of the Prescott B-u-s-h estate could be sued by survivors of the Holocaust and slave labor communities. To understand the complete picture of how Prescott Bu-sh profited from the Holocaust, it is necessary to return to the year 1916, where it all began. Post World War I: Thyssen Empire On The Ropes By 1916, August Thyssen could see the writing on the wall. The "Great War" was spinning out of control, grinding away at Germany's resources and economy. The gov-ernment was broke and his company, Thyssen & Co., with 50,000 German workers and annual production of 1,000,000 tons of steel and iron, was buckling under the war's pressure. As the main supplier of the German military, August Thyssen knew Germany would be defeated once the US entered the war. At 74, "King" August Thyssen knew he was also running out of time. His first born "prince" Friedrich (Fritz) Thyssen, had been groomed at the finest technical business schools in Europe and was destined to inherit his father's estimated $100,000,000 fortune and an industrial empire located at Muehhlheim on the Ruhr. In addition to Fritz, plans were also made for the second son Heinrich. At the outbreak of the war, Heinrich Thyssen discreetly changed his citizenship from German to Hungarian and married the Hungarian aristocrat Baroness Margrit Bornemisza de Kaszon.
