09/27/2004 Entry: "Prescott and Adolph"

"George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

"The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

"His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

"The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator's action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy."
How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power, by Ben Aris in Berlin and Duncan Campbell in Washington, Saturday September 25, 2004, The Guardian

Just when I thought the Bush family couldn't get any more disgraceful, it does.

Ginger, you might be interested in Symbolman's Flash on Prescott Bush and his role as Hitler's banker.
Bush no Nazi. Interestingly it is copyright 2003, and certainly I have been linking to it for a least a year. It concludes that in fact Bush is no Nazi, his Fascism is instead drawn from the Italian version.

It was well-researched, but too polemic to make it into wide distribution. To see what is in effect a text edition of iton the pages of the Guardian made my jaw drop.
