A few days ago Inessa S posted on her Telegram channel a list of the Nazi-officers who subsequently entered the NATO service at the highest level.
The NAZI officers in charge of NATO. You read that right…
- Adolf Heusinger, Hitler’s Chief of Staff, went on to become Chairman of NATO Military Committee in 1961-1964.
- Hans Speidel, NATO Commander of Central Europe (CCE) 1957-1963
- Johann Steinhof, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, 1971-1974
- Johann von Kleimansegg – NATO CCE, 1967-1968
- Ernst Ferber – NATO CCE, 1973-1975
- Carl Schnel – NATO CCE, 1975-1977.
- Franz Josef Schulze – NATO CCE, 1977-1979.
- Ferdinand von Senger und Etterlin – NATO CCE, 1979-1983.
Everyone also read about the troubled Credit Suisse that as good as went under.
And now the dots, vaguely connecting these two seemingly disjointed news items. Yesterday “Argumenty i Fakty” published and article that places under scrutiny the finances that came to Switzerland during WWII. This article can also serve as a auxiliary material to the bigger documentary, which I translated some time ago: The Great Unknown War. A must-see documentary about the WWII prelude. By Andrei Medvedev.
Reminders of the events of 80 years ago in Europe occur with frightening regularity. This time the topic of close ties between Swiss bankers and the Third Reich came up.
