English translation of a Dutch newspaper article from 1932 published under the headline below. We are not aware of any legal action taken by Royal Dutch Shell founder Sir Henry Deterding challenging the veracity of what was stated about his financial support for Hitler and his Nazi party.

Has the Hapag financially supported the Nazis?

Berlin, April 15 (H.N.).

According to a report in the Berlin afternoon newspaper, the Hapag has made a sum of 120,000 marks available to the Hitler movement for a few weeks. The magazine gives this message under all conditions, as it has not been able to check this. The magazine, however, explains. that it has received the message from a very reliable source, so that it publishes it in the expectation that the Hapag will provide all desirable clarifications. Furthermore, the magazine points to the relationship between the English newspaper king, Lord Beaverbrook and Sir Henry Deterding, and indicates in connection therewith that both these people have in the last few years, on ever increasing scale, placed resources at the disposal of the National Socialist movement in Germany.

TRANSLATION ENDS

“Hapag” is believed to be a reference to Hapag, a shipping company now known as Hapag-Lloyd. Henri Deterding was a founder of the Royal Dutch Shell Group.
