The Vatican, Swiss banks and American corporations like I.B.M., General Motors and DuPont. All whitewashed Nazism. Also Hollywood.
The list of institutions and industries that have been accused of whitewashing their links to the Third Reich is long, including various governments, the Vatican, Swiss banks and American corporations like I.B.M., General Motors and DuPont.
Now a young historian wants to add a more glamorous name to that roll call: Hollywood. In “The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact With Hitler,” Ben Urwand draws on a wealth of previously uncited documents to argue that Hollywood studios, in an effort to protect the German market for their movies, not only acquiesced to Nazi censorship but also actively and enthusiastically cooperated with that regime’s global propaganda effort.
In the 1930s “Hollywood is not just collaborating with Nazi Germany,” Mr. Urwand said by telephone from Cambridge, Mass., where he is currently at Harvard’s prestigious Society of Fellows. “It’s also collaborating with Adolf Hitler, the person and human being.”
Mr. Urwand’s book, to be published in October by Harvard University Press, has been seen by few scholars. But his research, which was summarized this month in the online magazine Tablet, is already creating a stir.
It was Warner who personally ordered that the word “Jew” be removed from all dialogue in the 1937 film “The Life of Emile Zola,” Mr. Urwand writes, and his studio was the first to invite Nazi officials to its Los Angeles headquarters to screen films and suggest cuts.
“There’s a whole myth that Warner Brothers were crusaders against fascism,” Mr. Urwand said. “But they were the first to try to appease the Nazis in 1933.”
Mr. Urwand said that he found nearly 20 films intended for American audiences that German officials significantly altered or squelched. Perhaps more important, he added, Jewish characters were all but eliminated from Hollywood movies.

It is an illusion to think that if Israel gives up the land God told them to look after, Jew hate will disappear.
If this was true, there would be no Jew-hate before 1948. No Holocaust. And no need to read the book of Esther.
The truth is that mankind refuse to accept that sin is the problem, that separates men from eternity in Heaven. The consequence of sin is death, followed by judgment. All sinners can be hundred percent sure of spending eternity in Hell.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The good news is that God of the Bible chose a people to be His treasured property. The Jews. They were called to build a nation. From that nation the word of God would be proclaimed, and it would reach all nations.
This promise was fulfilled in the Messiah, who came and died on the cross in our place. By His blood we have been redeemed from our sins, and do not have to pay the penalty for sins with our own blood.
To live with Jew-hate in your heart, is the most degenerated form of life. You basically curse the people who brought you salvation, the Messiah’s family in the flesh.
Satan hate the Jews, and so do all his children. Satan knows about God’s plan to save mankind, and have done all he can to delete it.
Let Jesus the Messiah live in your heart. Accept Him as savior today. If you submit to the servant of God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, He will fire up your heart and make you love the Jews. You will also become a supporter of the state of Israel.
