Proof the EU is a Nazi Creation

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

The evidence shows clearly that the framework for the EU was built in the 1940s by Adolf Hitler and other Nazis.

There are, however, still some people around who don’t understand that the EU was created by the Nazis.

(None of the evidence below has been denied by the EU.)

Here is a précis of the evidence:

1. It was in the 1930s that Adolf Hitler wanted to destroy national identities and create a united Europe, consisting of new regions to be ruled from Berlin. In 1936, Hitler told the Reichstag: 'It is not very intelligent to imagine that in such a cramped house like that of Europe, a community of peoples can maintain different legal systems and different concepts of law for long.' Even before that, in Italy, the founding father of fascism, Mussolini, said in 1933 that: 'Europe may once again grasp the helm of world civilisation if it can develop a modicum of political unity.' (Mussolini was, of course, the father of fascism.)

2. Adolf Hitler’s advisor, Funk, agreed that 'there must be a readiness to subordinate one’s own interests…to that of the European Community'.

3. In 1940, Arthur Seyss-Inquart called for a new European community which would be above the concept of the nation state. Seyss-Inquart was, at the time, the Nazi in charge of the occupied Netherlands. He predicted that once national barriers had been removed there would be increased prosperity in Europe.

4. Walther Funk designed the EU. He was President of the Reichsbank and a director of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). It was Funk who laid the foundations for European economic unity – and the euro. Funk was Adolf Hitler’s key economics advisor.

5. The European Union was designed by Nazis and it has been carefully created according to the original design. It is not, you will note, a 'group’ or an 'association’. It was always a union. 'What good fortune for governments that the people do not think,' said Adolf Hitler.

6. The BIS, mentioned above, was then and still is the world’s most powerful and secret global financial institution. During the Second World War, the BIS accepted looted Nazi gold (handling 21.5 metric tons of Nazi gold) and supported the development and launch of what would, in 2002, become the euro. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is outside everyone’s control and yet it is in control of the world’s finances. During WWII, the BIS was used by the Nazis and the Allies as a point of contact. Walther Funk’s deputy, Emil Puhl, described the BIS as the 'foreign branch' of the Reichsbank. At the end of WWII, the Reichsbank became the Bank deutscher Lander and the Bundesbank. The BIS helped these to ensure that Germany continued to dominate Europe – despite its having come a poor second in the Second World War.

7. In 1940, Funk prepared a lengthy memo called 'Economic Reorganisation of Europe' which was passed to the President of the BIS (who was an American called Thomas McKittrick)on July 26th 1940. (A copy of this historic document is stored at the BIS in Basel.) 'The new European economy will result from close economic collaboration between German and European countries,' wrote Funk. It is important to note that even then the EU was seen as a union between Germany, on the one hand, and the rest of Europe, on the other. There was never any doubt which nation would be in charge of the new United States of Europe. (The phrase United States of Europe was devised by Adolf Hitler himself).

8. Germany is benefitting enormously from the euro crisis but Funk knew that would be the case. Back in 1940, Funk had the idea for the euro but warned that even after monetary union it would be impossible to have one standard of living throughout Europe. He knew that the euro would be flawed but he also knew that Germany would come out on top.

9. In 1941, Walther Funk was still planning the new European Union. He launched the Europaische Wirtschafts Gemeinschaft (European Economic Community) to integrate the European economy into a single market and to establish his idea for a single European currency. All suggestions that Funk be recognised as the founding father of the European Union have been rejected on the grounds that it is too soon to put up a statue to the man to whom Hitler handed the responsibility of ensuring the good health of the Fourth Reich. Funk planned the EU in precise detail. It was Funk who planned a Europe free of trade and currency restrictions.

10. In June 1942, German officials prepared a document entitled Basic Elements of a Plan for the New Europe which called, among other things, for a European clearing centre to stabilise currency rates with the aim of removing foreign exchange restrictions, securing European monetary union and 'the harmonisation of labour conditions and social welfare'.

11. The original plan was for the Reichsmark to be the new European currency but Funk, a far-sighted pragmatist, never saw this as crucial, or being as important as Germany having economic leadership of Europe. The far-sighted Funk saw Germany as central to the planned EU, and argued that it would result in 'better outlets for German goods on European markets'. Back in 1940, it was Funk who planned to introduce a United States of Europe via a common currency. Today, it is clear that Walther Funk, economist, banker and war criminal, is the true father of the modern European Union and is one of the most influential figures in European history.

12. Hitler and the rest of the Nazi leadership welcomed Funk’s plans and in 1942 the German Foreign Ministry made detailed plans for a European confederation to be dominated by Germany. In the same year a group of German businessmen held a conference in Berlin entitled 'European Economic Community'. (The phrase 'European Economic Community' had been first used by Hermann Goerring in 1940.)

13. In 1942, Reinhard Heydrich, who was head of the Reich Security Central Office and renowned for his ruthlessness against enemies of the State, published The Reich Plan for the Domination of Europe – a document which is notable for its remarkable similarity to the EU’s Treaty of Rome.

14. In March 1943, 13 countries (including France and Italy) were invited to join a new European federation which would be under German military control. When the Nazis realised that they were losing the war they knew that they had to make a deal in order to preserve German domination in Europe. Thomas McKittrick, the president of the BIS, acted as go between and helped set up the negotiations. The underlying plan was to ensure that Germany dominated post-war Europe and Funk and his colleagues decided to talk about European spirit, liberty, equality, fraternity and worldwide cooperation as the basis for their planned European Union. They decided to agree to share power, and even to allow other countries to take charge for a while. The Nazis knew that all they needed to do was retain men in power in crucial posts. And this they succeeded in doing.

15. In 1943, Heinz Pol, a former newspaper editor from Berlin, who had fled to the US, published a book entitled The Hidden Enemy in which he explained that Germany realised that the war was lost and was planning to preserve its domination over Europe. Pol explained that the BIS was playing a vital part in the Nazi plan. Here is how Pol predicted that post war German leaders would trick the rest of the world into accepting that they had abandoned Nazi ideals: 'To obtain a peace, which would leave them in power, they will suddenly flaunt 'European spirit' and offer worldwide 'cooperation'. They will chatter about liberty, equality and fraternity. They will, all of a sudden, make up to the Jews. They will swear to live up to the demands of the Atlantic Charter and any other charter. They will share power with everybody and they will even let others rule for a while. They will do all this and more, if only they are allowed to keep some positions of power and control, that is, the only positions that count: in the army – were it even reduced to a few thousand men; in the key economic organisations; in the courts; in the universities; in the schools.'

16. In 1944 a secret conference was held in Berlin entitled 'How Will Germany Dominate The Peace When It Loses The War'. Rich and powerful Germans decided to move a huge amount of money out of Germany and to take it to America. (The money stayed there until after the Nurnberg Trials when it came back to Europe.)

17. In August 1944, the heads of the Nazi Government and a group of leading German industrialists, met at a hotel in Strasbourg and decided to hide more large sums of money in order to pay for the fight for a German dominated Europe to continue if their country lost the war. The Nazis realised that their back-up plan for European domination would take years to reach fruition but they believed that if their military tactics failed then their subtle economic and political tactics would prove successful.

18. The technical preparations for Funk’s 'European Large Unit Economy' (now better known as the Eurozone) began in 1947 when the Paris accord on multilateral payments was signed, were strengthened in 1951 when the European Coal and Steel Community was created as the first step towards the development of a new European nation to be run by Germany, and continued in 1964 when the Committee of European Central Banks (made up of Bank Governors) met at the BIS to coordinate monetary policy.

19. In 1961, US President Kennedy told British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan that the White House would only support Britain’s application to join the Common Market if Britain accepted that the true goal of the Common Market was political integration – Hitler’s famous United States of Europe.

20. In 1966, American President Johnson encouraged Britain’s membership of the developing European Economic Community and so Foreign Office civil servants in London decided that the 'special relationship' with the USA would be enhanced if Britain joined the Common Market. In 1968, the Foreign Office warned that 'if we fail to become part of a more united Europe, Britain’s links with the USA will not be enough to prevent us becoming increasingly peripheral to USA concerns’.

21. In 1950, Clement Attlee, Britain’s Labour Prime Minister recognised the problems associated with the planned European unity. He said, when responding to the Schuman plan for the European Coal and Steel Community (the initial version of the EU): 'It (is) impossible for Britain to accept the principle that the economic forces of this country should be handed over to an authority that is utterly undemocratic and is responsible to nobody.'

22. In 1945, Hitler’s Masterplan was captured by the Allies. The Plan included details of his scheme to create an economic integration of Europe and to found a European Union on a federal basis. The Nazi plan for a federal Europe was based on Lenin’s belief that `federation is a transitional form towards complete union of all nations’.
