Contents:
Business and politics: banks and companies in Nazi Germany -- The structure, organization, and economic environment of Deutsche Bank -- National Socialism and banks -- The problem of "Aryanization" -- Deutsche Bank and "Aryanization" in the pre-1938 boundaries of Germany -- Deutsche Bank abroad: "Aryanization," territorial expansion, and economic reordering -- Jewish-owned bank accounts -- The profits of the Deutsche Bank -- Some concluding reflections.
Summary: This book examines the role of the Deutsche Bank, Germany's largest financial institution, in the expropriation of Jewish-owned enterprises during the Nazi dictatorship, both in the existing territories of Germany and in the area seized by the German army during World War II. The author uses new and previously unavailable materials, many from the bank's own archives, to examine policies that led to the eventual genocide of European Jews. How far did the realization of the vicious and destructive Nazi ideology depend on the acquiesence, the complicity, and the cupidity of existing economic institutions to individuals? In response to the traditional argument that business cooperation with the Nazi regime was motivated by profit, this book closely examines the behavior of the bank and its individuals to suggest other motivations. No comparable study exists of a single company's involvement in the economic persecution of the Jews in Nazi Germany.
