The Rothschild Family are Jews and worth over $500 trillion. The Rothschild’s hated Jews that is why they funded money to Adolf Hitler with interest — is that fact true?
That is not true. There is no evidence the Rothschilds family (whose estimated worth is actually estimated at about 3.5 billion) hated Jews or supported Hitler.
The Rothschilds were major contributors to Jewish aid causes. Nazi propaganda heavily featured them as villains specifically because they were Jewish.
Much of the Rothschild property and funds were stolen by the Nazis in Germany and Austria.
In Niall Ferguson’s biography of the Rothschild family, The House of Rothschild: Volume 2: The World’s Banker: 1849-1999, it’s explained that the Nazis used the Ordinance on the Registration of Jewish Assets to dissolve nearly all of the Rothschild’s charitable and educational foundations. Much of the private property of those Rothschilds in Germany was stolen or confiscated.
The Rothschild’s didn’t fund Hitler. His government stole their money and property and dissolved the charities they created.
