Book Description

22 July 2003
In 1918 Adolf Hitler was penniless: within 25 years he was probably the richest man in Europe. In this fascinating book the author sets out to discover not only the extent of Hitler's fortune but how it was amassed and with whose help. This book also traces what happened to the property, the funds, the art collection, and other items after 1945 and reveals who is ETH and who is trying to ETH profit today from the legacy of Adolf Hitler. Amongst items never before revealed is recently discovered evidence for two of Hitler's bank accounts; the truth about the financing of Hitler's publishing empire; and many other previously undisclosed facts.

Mumbling to myself that there can't be that much relevant new information about Hitler to be discovered I began reading this book somewhat reluctantly, on a friend's recommendation. It seems I couldn't have been more wrong about 'it all having been said already' - there is so much we don't know about the enormous hidden fortunes of this once penniless doodler! Are the ill-gotten riches now happily jingling and breeding profit in American pockets? Who benefits? According to Whetton, Hitler was not above stealing from his friends or even from old ladies and as a result became the richest man in Europe. Who was the heir to all that wealth? Although Hitler's Fortune does not reveal where *all* the money went, the book, if made to a documentary film, would make a box office hit! While the subject is closely related to the indescribable human tragedies of WW II the book manages to be genuinely funny at times and makes an interesting and easy reading. I highly recommend it to anyone having any interest in history - or in having a go at a thriller that unfortunately did happen - while the world was watching.
