Royal Dutch Shell Nazi Secrets: Introduction
Dr. Georg Bell,(8) a German spy, was an agent of Sir Henri Deterding who acted initially as as an intermediary between Deterding and Adolf Hitler in forming an alliance between the oil titan and the Nazi leader. This was done to hide what the public might consider to be an unsavory relationship.(9)
The most important reason why it does still matter is that ordinary people, ethical investors, and relatives of victims of the Holocaust and other Nazi crimes against humanity, are entitled, on moral grounds, to be aware of this dark chapter in the history of Royal Dutch Shell, so that they can decide if they wish to hold shares in the company or purchase Shell products.
Royal Dutch Shell adopted anti-Semitic policies against Jewish Shell directors and employees and apparently turned a blind eye to the evil conduct of its Nazi business partner, IG Farben.
There are many published reports from reputable independent sources confirming the financial support Royal Dutch Shell/Deterding provided to the Nazis. The support was given in a variety of forms: money, oil on long term credit, food donations on a massive scale and revenues from Shell advertising in a Nazi newspaper.
Let us emphasize the gravity of what transpired. A Royal Dutch Shell group company instructed its own employees to declare information, which for some, amounted to a death warrant.
Shell had got into bed with the most notorious and evil company in corporate history, described in the 2008 book “Hell’s Cartel”, as a “war monster”.(12) IG Farben used slave labor, including interment camp prisoners, and held the patent on Zyklon-B gas used during the Holocaust(13 to exterminate millions of people, including children.
