Hitler's Fortune

The true story of how Adolf Hitler amassed billions of dollars in wealth, where that money went—and who may be trying to find it for themselves.
 
In 1918 Adolf Hitler was penniless. But within twenty-five years he was probably the richest man in Europe. In this fascinating book, Cris Whetton reveals not only the extent of Hitler’s fortune but how it was amassed and those who helped him.
 
As Whetton demonstrates, the royalties from his book, Mein Kampf, were only a small fraction of the total fortune Hitler possessed before World War II began. Whetton delves into the finances of Hitler’s publishing company Eher Verlag, and his fund Adolf Hitler Spende, to which many people ‘voluntarily’ contributed, as well as newly uncovered evidence of two of Hitler’s personal bank accounts. Also explored is how Hitler’s personal force, magnetism, and attraction to the opposite sex also proved hugely lucrative.
 
Hitler’s Fortune also follows what happened to the property, the funds, the art collection, and other items after the Fuhrer’s suicide in 1945, and reveals who is—and who is trying to—profit in modern times from the evil legacy of Adolf Hitler.
