J. Henry Schroder Bank
Schroders is a leading British multinational asset management company with over 200 years of experience in the world's financial markets. It is headquartered in the independent Anglo-American banking enclave known as the City of London.
The bank was established in 1804 by Johann Heinrich Schroder when he joined the London firm established by his brother, Johann Friedrich Schroder, as a partner in the business. In 1818, J. Henry Schroder & Co. was started in London and in 1923 they created a commercial bank in New York known as the J. Henry Schroder Banking Corporation.
In 1928, Avery Rockefeller joined Schroder and became assistant treasurer in 1931. Later, in July 1936, Rockefeller co-founded Schroder, Rockefeller & Co., Inc. established to assume the underwriting and general securities business formerly handled by the J. Henry Schroder Banking Corporation.
This merged the Rockefeller interests, Prescott Bush and other New York banking elites together with the Bank of England into a loose association of interests who first supported British appeasement to Hitler with Chamberlain followed by duping Hitler to believe he had the go-ahead to march east against Poland and communism.
Once the war started, with the invasion of Poland, they then switched to Churchill so London, New York and Washington could generate vast manufacturing and banking profits with the war. Like most wars for profit and economic interests, everything quickly got out of control. Hitler did far better than was expected, first in Poland and later in Europe and the Soviet Union. World War Two, with millions dead, was the ultimate result of what was supposed to be a short and profitable war to contain German economic power and Soviet communism.
Politicians, the controlled establishment media and their war propaganda and Anglosphere historians played catch-up as the war progressed in severity and destruction to hide the part played by London and US financial interests.
Eustace Mullins explains the Schroder involvement best: "Because his own financial backers, the Schroders, were sponsoring the Appeasement Party, Hitler believed there would be no war [with England.] He did not suspect that the backers of the Appeasement Party, now that Chamberlain had served his purpose in duping Hitler, would cast Chamberlain aside and make Churchill the Prime Minister."... "While history portrays Hitler duping the naive Neville Chamberlain and Lord Halifax, it appears Hitler himself was tricked into thinking he could expand eastward with impunity. Neville Chamberlain wasn't in on the secret. (He died prematurely just months after leaving office.) But as a Soviet informant, Halifax certainly was instrumental."
In summary, Schroder Bank was involved with the banking elites in the City of London and initial Bank of England financial support for the Third Reich as the Managing Director of Schroder Bank in England was also a Director of the Bank of England. This contrasts with America, where much of the US support came through other elite international banking institutions.
Note that this was all a very complicated arrangement and much of these activities have been hidden by establishment historians and the media from the general population for decades, except for a few brave researchers. Today, with the Internet, the truth about the Second World War and the actions by the banking elites and the central bankers they controlled is open for anyone with time to do the research online.
But also remember when researching history on the Web that there is a tremendous amount of disinformation and extreme theories to be found on the Internet, some of which are doubtless published purposefully to discredit the hidden historical truths. One should question the extreme conspiracy theories.
Most elite supporters of Hitler were financial opportunists rather than Nazi sympathizers, and hindsight is always 20/20 looking back on important historical events. Few political and financial leaders at the time saw the potential horrors of the war and holocaust would result from "just another economic war" that raged dramatically out of control.
