Banking on Hitler TimeWatch BBC ; written, produced and directed by Paul Elston


Swiss banks are accused of collaborating with the Nazis during World War II, but U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau, who began investigating this collaboration also found that both British and American bankers continued to do business with Hitler, even as Germany was invading Europe and bombing London. This investigative film shows in detail the roles played by the Anglo-German banking clique. Key members of the Bank of England together with their German counterparts established the BIS, the Bank for International Settlements, which laundered the plundered gold of Europe, while other banks froze the accounts of French Jews depriving them of the money to escape.
