Historical Background

German Post-War Plans for Nazi Revival

According to many sources, including Adam LeBor, a British expert on World War II, and author of The Budapest Protocol; on August 10, 1944, a three-page report, entitled the Red House Report, was written and published in November, 1944 detailing a secret meeting that was held between SS Lt. General Dr. Scheid and high-level German industrialists like Max Faust, Chief Engineer of I.G. Farben, which supplied Zyklon B, the gas that killed millions of people. Also present were representatives of Volksvagen, Krupp, and Messerschmitt. Discussed were plans of a post-war recovery if Germany was defeated, and preparation for a Nazi return to power.

The meeting was held at the Maison Rouge Hotel in Strasbourg. The industrialists were to funnel money through Swiss banks to set up secret international front companies, finance an underground Nazi Party, and prepare for the day they could take over the German economy. Himmler described the plans as “to work for a stronger German empire.”

The report was written by a French spy at the meeting, copied by British intelligence and sent to Cordell Hull, US Secretary of State, and designated as document EW-PA-128. It is true that German companies very quickly rebuilt their factories and plants and fostered the strongest economy in Europe.

In 1957, John J. McCloy, High Commissioner for Germany, declared an amnesty for all industrialists involved in war crimes, even though such companies like Krupp were said to use “slave laborers like cattle and worked to death.”

In Desperate Mission, I talk about the plans for Hitler and his top henchman to escape and then become masters of a new and more powerful Fourth Reich.
