London Withdraws Book, “hitler As Frankenstein”; U.S. Aid to Nazis Denied

The publishers of “Hitler as Frankenstein”, announced today that all traceable copies of the book will be withdrawn and the following insertion will be made in the book: “The publishers are informed by J. P. Morgan and Company, that the statement that the firm contributed funds to the Nazis is without foundation. In fact, neither Mr. Morgan nor the firm, nor any individual partner, made any contributions to Hitler or to any other German organization.”

In the book, Johannes Steel, the author, a former German official, asserted that the house of Morgan had given the Nazi party $50,000 in three installments. Steel also asserted that Henry Ford, General Motors and several others not named had contributed money to the Hitlerites. All these whom Steel named, later denied ever having given the Nazis money.
