No apology or compensation for Shell’s blatant antisemitism that killed many loyal Shell employees when Shell was in bed with the Nazis

The top lawyer at Shell has already disputed irrefutable evidence and threatened legal action against me, but it has all proven to be empty bluster. The last thing Shell wants is for its Nazi past to be aired in open court.

Toxic ramifications from Nazi business connections continue to make news headlines several decades after the end of WW2.

Two weeks ago we published a story about Shell arising from a New York Times article published on 14 June 2019 revealing that billionaire descendants of a family who control a company which owns Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Pret A Manger and a number of other famous brands are grappling with the exposure of an unspeakable secret – a Nazi history.

Today, the Guardian newspaper has published a related article:

Dutch railway to pay out €50m over role in Holocaust

Extracts

The Dutch railway has accepted a recommendation that it pay up to €50m (£45m) to relatives of thousands of people it transported to Nazi death camps during the second world war. Roger van Boxtel, the chief executive of the state-owned Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS), said it was time for the company to make a gesture to those “directly involved” as he reiterated an apology first made in 2005. In 2014, the French railways operator SNCF agreed to pay £40m in compensation for its role in moving approximately 76,000 Jews to Nazi camps during the Holocaust.

Royal Dutch Shell founder Sir Henri Deterding sent vast amounts of financial aid to the Nazis – on one occasion 7,000 railway wagons full of food, which allowed money to be diverted to Hitler’s rearmament programme. 

Senior Shell managers were involved in Nazi military planning. One of them, Robert Finn, was head of vitally important oil supplies for fuelling the entire Nazi war machine before returning as a director of Shell Chemical Company in Germany after the war ended in disaster for the Third Riech. 

As far as I know, Shell has never apologised or paid any compensation despite evidence in Shell’s own historical archive that some Shell employees lost their lives because of Shell anti-semitism. Evidence that Deterding and Shell engaged in antisemitism can be found on shellnazihistory.com
