After World War Two, scores of suspected
Nazi war criminals were prosecuted by the Allies in the Palace of
Justice in the city of Nuremberg, the birth-place of the Nazi Party.
The defendants were drawn not just from the military, but also from
medical, judicial, administrative, industrial, and other sectors of
the German war machine.
Among the industrial prisoners charged with crimes against humanity
were 24 managers of IG Farben, an organization without whom,
according to U.S. Chief Prosecutor Telford Taylor, the Second
World War would not have been possible.
Interessengemeinschaft Farben, (Association of Common
Interests), became a powerful cartel of German chemical and
pharmaceutical companies such as Bayer (the aspirin manufacturer),
BASF, AGFA, and Hoechst (now known as Aventis.)
By 1933, the IG Farben group had become
the largest chemical and pharmaceutical corporation in the world.
And even today, although it doesn't use the name IG Farben, its
companies remain the most powerful transnationals on the planet in
pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and agro-chemicals.
The IG Farben cartel was crucial to the Nazi war effort by supplying
synthetic fuel, rubber, and other chemicals. They also manufactured
Zyklon-B, the nerve gas used to
kill millions at the concentration camps of Auschwitz, Birkenau and
The cartel, later known as the
Devil's Chemists, used unwilling inmates of the concentration
camps as slave laborers and guinea pigs to test chemicals,
pharmaceuticals, and vaccines. Tens of thousands died, and those who
became too ill to be of any use were murdered in the gas chambers.
IG Farben worked closely with the Nazi regime and the SS and were
perhaps the most important dynamic in driving the Nazi war machine,
donating some 80 million Reichsmarks in return for chemical,
pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries seized from occupied
Yet they could not have gotten to a
position of such power without huge investment from
John D. Rockefeller and his
Standard Oil Company.
Together with Rockefeller they set up a
company called Standard IG Farben.
Although he knew it would be used for war purposes, Rockefeller was
able to organize a shipment of 500 tons of tetraethyl lead to IG
Farben in 1938 which the Luftwaffe needed for aviation fuel.
Amazingly, a year later, with war about to break out, he supplied
them with up to 20 million dollars of tetraethyl lead which
directly enabled Hitler to start the War
by attacking Poland and France.
Even as late as 1942 he supplied the Nazis with oil diverted through
Switzerland and refueled German submarines in the Channel Islands.
When charged under the "Trading With The
Enemy" Act, Rockefeller got away with a 'slap on the wrist' (5,000
dollar fine) when President Roosevelt abruptly halted the
investigation at the behest of the War Department. (The unpatriotic
Rockefeller had threatened to stop supplying the U.S. with crucial
supplies of war-time oil.)
IG Farben went on to build the largest industrial complex in Europe
at Auschwitz to manufacture chemicals and explosives for the German
The venture was financed by Deutsche
Bank to the tune of almost one billion Reichsmarks. This complex,
known as IG Auschwitz, covered some 24 square kilometers including
the Auschwitz concentration camp from which it drew on a huge pool
of slave labor. IG Farben directors were instrumental in turning
this huge complex into the largest extermination camp in human
On a number of occasions, when orders were given by the Allies to
bomb the complex, Rockefeller used his influence through John J.
McCloy, Assistant Secretary of War (who was a former legal
counselor to IG Farben), to cancel the bombing raids, much to the
chagrin of some of the Allied commanders.
Furthermore, not one bomb fell on IG
Farben's Headquarters back in Germany, at Frankfurt. Astounding,
at a time when German industrial cities were widely bombed and
pulverized, including Frankfurt itself.
At the Nuremberg Trials, 24 of the IG Farben directors and other
industrialists were charged with genocide, slavery, and other crimes
Many of these unscrupulous villains
would later play a key role in reinstating several IG Farben
companies as huge players in the pharmaceutical/chemical industry
not only in Germany but also throughout Europe and the United
States. And several of these former Nazis would be pivotal in
devising a pan-European trade association which has now evolved into
the European Union.
Dr. Fritz ter Meer, a director of IG Farben who was directly
involved in developing the nerve gas, Zyklon-B, which killed
millions of Jews, was sentenced to seven years in prison but was
released after four years through the intervention of Rockefeller
and J.J. McCloy, then U.S. High Commissioner for Germany. An
unrepentant Fritz ter Meer, guilty of genocide and crimes against
humanity, returned to work in Bayer where he served as Chairman for
more than 10 years, until 1961.
This same ter Meer, a convicted Nazi war criminal, went on to become
one of the initiators of the
Codex Alimentarius Commission in
1962, an organization that was nurtured by,
the World Health Organization (WHO)
the Food and Agriculture
the World Trade Organization (WTO)
Codex Alimentarius, supposedly
set up to protect the health of consumers and ensure fair practices
in the food trade, is in reality extremely hostile to the world's
vitamin, supplement, and natural food industries and seems
determined to destroy them.
Codex is controlled by Big Pharma whose
only raison d'Ítre is to promote disease and sell more
Karl Wurster, chairman of the IG Farben company, Degesch,
which manufactured the Zyklon-B nerve gas, was charged as a war
criminal but was somehow acquitted. He later served as CEO of BASF
of 13 years, until 1974.
Hans Globke co-authored the anti-Jewish Nuremberg Race Laws
and was responsible for writing the new laws of the Greater European
Reich in Nazi-occupied countries.
After the War, Globke became a minister
in Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's government and served from 1949 to
1963. He was free of any parliamentary supervision and controlled
the Secret Service. He was also directly involved in plotting with
the oil and drug cartel on how to take over and control European
markets within the newly constructed European Economic Community
(EEC), fore-runner of the current European Union (EU).
Walter Hallstein was a prominent Nazi law professor who
stated in 1939:
One of the most important laws (in
occupied European countries) is the 'Protection
Law of German Blood and Honor'.
This Nazi "blood and honor" lawyer was
instrumental in creating the European Union's basic structure and
became the first head of the European Commission, an executive body
adroitly designed to rule Europe without any interference from
democratic control. This absence of democracy is quite evident in
Brussels especially today.
In 1957, Chancellor Adenauer and
Hallstein signed the first European Treaty in Rome.
[Much of the information
here on IG Farben has come from Dr.
Matthias Rath, a tireless
campaigner for health freedom and the scourge of Big Pharma. Dr.
Rath, under the Freedom of Information Act, has managed to obtain
tens of thousands of IG Farben documents from the War Crimes
Tribunal that had been kept secret for six decades and has posted
them on his website. See (www.profit-over-life.org)

The domination by the pharmaceutical industry of current medical
practice and their insidious influence on government legislation is
a direct legacy of IG Farben and the Nazi war criminals who ran the
Crimes are still being committed today on such a massive scale that
millions of people have died since World War Two and millions more
are being poisoned daily by these monsters. It is impossible in this
short article to list all the horrendous criminality of Big Pharma,
Big Food, Big Biotech, and their political henchmen but the
following paragraphs provide some examples of the death and mayhem
In a recent report authored by Dr. Gary Null, Dr. Carolyn
Dean, et al, (Death
by Medicine) some
780,000 Americans are killed by their doctors or by the medical
system each year. 106,000 of these die from properly prescribed
medicine in properly prescribed doses and over two million people
are hospitalized because of adverse effects from taking these
FDA-approved prescription drugs.
The directors of the companies who manufacture these drugs well know
the harm they cause but do all they can to keep such adverse
information from the public.
These gangsters are driven by greed and
profit; they couldn't care less about people's health or their
lives. A good example is
the scandal of
Vioxx, a drug that
was kept on the market even though it was known to cause heart
Vioxx is believed to have killed between
50,000 and 70,000 people. Other dangerous drugs include Baycol,
Bextra, Celebrex, and the list goes on...
Big Pharma is involved in rigging drug trials, ghostwriting the
reports of "independent" researchers, bribing politicians, doctors,
and scientists, and hiding reports unfavorable to their drugs. One
particularly nasty example of collusion that appeared recently on
the case of Dr.
Biederman of Harvard University
who advocated mind-altering drugs for children while being secretly
paid off 1.6 million dollars from the drug companies.
And to maintain their markets, Big Pharma is very active in
suppressing vitamins, minerals, and natural health foods.
They also suppress any information on
natural health and are energetically assisted in this by their
friends in the FDA and other government bodies. They are helped by
colluding politicians who push through legislation to favor big
corporations and they remain unchallenged by mainstream media who
have a deeper affinity for advertising revenue than for people's
Big Food poisons us with chemical additives, preservatives,
colorings, flavorings, trans fats and other harmful ingredients. The
effects of these deadly additives are well known and documented;
aspartame, MSG, sodium benzoate, potassium bromate, sodium nitrite,
and thousands more. It's no wonder most of us are sick, and we're
Governments turn a blind eye to crimes of toxicity and actively
promote the dumping of fluoride and chlorine in our water, the use
of mercury in vaccines and in dentistry, and to a host of other
criminal acts committed in the pretext of advancing public health.
Again with government complicity, Big Biotech poisons us with
Genetically Modified crops in a plot to own the patents to the very
food that's nourished us for hundreds of thousands of years. GM
crops pose one of the greatest threats to our health and survival on
this planet. No one really knows what effects this frankenfood
will have on us or future generations.
GM food is currently suspected as
a cause of
And what kind of a warped, evil mind would invent a "terminator"
seed that is designed to become sterile when the plants are
harvested so that the farmer is forced to buy more seeds from these
already mega-rich corporations.
What if these terminator seeds
infiltrated the crops across the world?
Now it is time to say, "Enough!"
This unmitigated evil must end. Those responsible must be stopped
and made to answer for their crimes. We need to revisit Nuremberg
and finish the job that was begun there some 60 years ago.
I propose compiling a record of all the people from the
above-mentioned industries, mass media, politics, government
regulation bodies, finance, and from wherever appropriate, and
entering them in a register along with their observed crimes against
humanity. This register would be presented as a prosecution document
when the day of reckoning comes. These individuals are acting
against the health interests of the people of this planet and must
be dealt with accordingly.
When a name and a crime goes on the list, that person should be put
on notice so that they can't say they were unaware of their crime or
that they were just "following orders". This will also give them a
chance to repudiate their crime and to join the ranks of the
promoters of natural health and freedom of choice.
This book of records might become known as "The Nuremberg List" and
widely publicized so that it quickly enters the public
Soon, the very mention of "The Nuremberg
List" - unlike "Schindler's List" which offered hope and salvation -
would instill fear of liability and punishment into those who
persist in poisoning their fellow man. Perhaps a respected
organization like Natural News might agree to compiling such a list.
Matthias Rath has already
started things rolling by instigating proceedings against some of
these corporate criminals.
In June, 2003, Dr. Rath's Foundation
lodged formal charges against those special interests behind the
pharmaceutical 'business with disease' at the International
Criminal Court (ICC)
in the Hague, the Nederlands.
The ICC is the premier world court for
cases of genocide and other crimes against humanity.
Dr. Rath said,
"We are convinced that one day soon
these charges will form the basis for an international tribunal
at the ICC that will shadow the scope of the Nuremberg Pharma
Tribunal of 1947/48."
Among those charged are,
...and other members of the Republican
Also cited are executives of the
...and other culpable people.
See more details
here. Dr. Rath should be
congratulated for his efforts and assisted in every way possible.
Let this be the beginning of the end for
corporate tyranny and let good health and fair play prevail on this
beautiful but defiled planet of ours.
