The Truth: Who Funded the Nazi Eugenics Machine 1940 – 1952




Rockefeller began to hear of the experiments that Mengele was carrying out on the twins. It is said that John D Rockefeller nor any of the executives on the board ever met personally with Josef Mengele nor had any idea what he was doing. John D Rockefeller now made the decision he had to cut off funds to what Mengele was doing.

When this was done, European Rockefeller Foundation official, Daniel O’Brian, wrote to the Rockefeller Foundation’s chief medical officer Alan Gregg that

“It would be unfortunate if it was chosen to stop research which has no relation to war issues.”

So the Rockefeller Foundation made the decision to ONLY continue financing the Nazi institute that was dealing with “psychiatric” (“Mind control research”) during the war.

To further I .G. Farbens’ production to make gasoline from coal, they built a gigantic factory at Auschwitz. Inmates of the camp, who were not exterminated, were then forced to work as slaves in that factory.

Margaret Sanger appointed Lothrop Stoddard as a board member of the Birth Control League (the forerunner of Planned Parenthood).

He would state the following:

“Jew problem” is “already settled in principle and soon to be settled in fact by the physical elimination of the Jews themselves from the Third Reich:

In the book, The Nazi Connection (Eugenics, American Racism, And German National Socialism), Stefan Kuhl, writes on pg 62, this about Stoddard’s’ views on Nazi Eugenics:

…” When the Nazis came to power, argued Stoddard, they started to increase “both the size and the quality of the population.” They coupled initiatives designed to encourage “sound” citizens to reproduce with a “drastic curb of the defective elements….”

This man also witnessed live what the Nazis were doing with there Eugenics movement. He described it this way:

“Weeding out the worst strains in the Germanic stock in a scientific and truly humanitarian way.”

Lothrop Stoddard would say the following about what he calls the “Jews Problem.”

Stefan Kuhl would write on pp 61-62 in his book The Nazi Connection:

..”It is no secret that Adolf Hitler and the Nazis favored Jews be more subject to induced abortion and sterilization than other groups. He [Lothrop Stoddard] even met personally with Adolf Hitler. William L. Shirer, an American colleague who had been in Germany since 1934, complained that the Reich minister for propaganda [Joseph Goebbels] gave special preference to Stoddard because his writings on racial subject were “featured in Nazi school textbooks.”

Why did the Birth Control League change the name to Planned Parenthood? Because The ‘”Nazi smell’ of Birth Control League was so bad that some “cosmetics were required.”

President Roosevelt and Senator Harry Truman, who was Chairman of an investigating committee, of the merger of Standard Oil and I,G. Farben, began legal measures to stop Standard Oil from supplying funds to Hitler’s War machine.


On May 30, 1943, Mengele arrived at Auschwitz. Verschuer notified the German Research Society:

“My assistant, Dr. Josef Mengele (M.D., Ph.D.) joined me in this branch of research. He is presently employed as Hauptsturmführer (captain) and camp physician in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Anthropological testing of the most diverse racial groups in this concentration camp is being carried out with permission of the SS Reichsführer (Himmler).”

Since the Rockefeller foundation ended all funds, they were sending to his eugenics division. Verschuer had to look for ways he could raise funds, so Mengele could carry out his experiments at Auschwitz.

To the German Research Council. Verschuer wrote a progress report:

“My co-researcher in this research is my assistant the anthropologist and physician Mengele. He is serving as Hauptstuermfuehrer and camp doctor in the concentration camp Auschwitz…. With the permission of the Reichsfuehrer SS Himmler, anthropological research is being undertaken on the various racial groups in the concentration camps and blood samples will be sent to my laboratory for investigation.”

Josef Mengele would conduct horrible and tortuous experiments on twins to do genetic studies on them. As the boxcars would roll into the camp, Mengele would begin to search them for twins. When he found them, they were taken to his horror chamber. Where he performed beastly and inhumane experiments on them. Mengele would write very detailed and precise notes on his findings. He would even send eyes, tissue samples, blood body parts, or cadavers to Otmar Verschuer. Where he would conduct further studies on them, and write very detailed and precise notes on his findings.

Did YOU Know…

After World War II, Standard-Germany president, Emil Helfferich, testified before a Congressional Committee that Standard Oil helped pay for the wages of the SS guards at Auschwitz.

Between 1943-1946

Mengele’s boss, Otmar Verschuer, ESCAPED prosecution from the Nuremberg trials. He heads to California where he re-establishes communication with the California Eugenicists who now went into hiding. They change there field of study from Eugenics to “HUMAN GENETICS.”

July 25, 1946:

Popenoe wrote Verschuer, “It was indeed a pleasure to hear from you again. I have been very anxious about my colleagues in Germany . . . I suppose sterilization has been discontinued in Germany?” Popenoe offered tidbits about various American eugenics luminaries and then sent various eugenics publications. In a separate package, Popenoe sent some cocoa, coffee and other goodies.

Verschuer wrote back, “Your very friendly letter of 7/25 gave me a great deal of pleasure and you have my heartfelt thanks for it. The letter builds another bridge between your and my scientific work; I hope that this bridge will never again collapse but rather make possible valuable mutual enrichment and stimulation.”

Verschuer wrote to the Bureau of Human Heredity in London, asking for funds to help finance his studies in the area of “FACELIFTS!”

Sir Julian Huxley, once the head of the Eugenics Society, pushed world depopulation through UNESCO.

Did YOU Know…

Just like the Eugenicists did, changing there name to the field of Human Genetics, Rockefeller did the same thing. Since Eugenics had so much ties to the Nazis, the Rockefeller Foundation began to devote their funds to groups dealing with population control and abortions.


The Bureau of Human Heredity moved from London to Copenhagen. Their new headquarters in Copenhagen would be built with money given to them by the Rockefeller foundation.


By 1949, Otmar Verschuer once again became a respected scientist in Germany and around the world. He would even become a member of the newly formed American Society of Human Genetics. This group was organized by those involved for years in the American eugenicists and geneticist movement.

Did YOU Know…

The Eugenics Society would also change its name to the “Society for the Study of Social Biology”, A society which still exists today.


In the fall of 1950, the University of Münster offered Verschuer a position at its new Institute of Human Genetics, He accepted it and later became dean of the Institute.

By the mid 1950′s , Verschuer became an honorary member of the following societies all across the world. Some of them were: , The Italian Society of Genetics, the Anthropological Society of Vienna, and the Japanese Society for Human Genetics.



The Population Council was founded by John D. Rockefeller III.

Did YOU Know…

The Cold Spring Harbor Institute is still in existence today. Matter of fact, if you go to their website, you will see it is scrubbed of the word Eugenics. Nor does the site talk about its dark past.
