FRIDAY, OCT:9, 1987:

Henry Ford

Continued from preceding page

the 1930s was called upon
to probe the anti-Semitic
background of Henry
Ford, because of the man-
ner in which "The Interna-
tional Jew" canards were
being circulated in Ger-
many, Spain, Brazil and
other countries.
In his book, The Rise and
Fall of the Third Reich,
William L. Shirer wrote:
"The Reich youth leader
was Baldur von Schirach,
a romantically-minded
young man and an
energetic organizer whose
mother was an American
and whose great-
grandfather, a union of-
ficer, had lost a leg at Bull
Run; he told his American
gaolers at Nuremberg that
he had become an anti-
Semite at the age of 17 after
reading a book called In-
ternational Jew by Henry
In 1938, Hitler's highest
award, the Grand Cross of
the Supreme Order of the
German Eagle, was
presented to Henry Ford in
his office by the German
Consul in Cleveland, Karl
Capp, in the presence of
Fritz Hailer, the German
Consul in Detroit who later
played a notoriously pro-
Nazi role in America.
E.G. Liebold and William
J. Cameron, two ofi Ford's
chief advisers, were pre-
sent at the ceremony.
Henry Ford then received
Hitler's personal con-
gratulations and commen-
dations. It was the year of
the "Kristallnacht," the
wholesale destruction of
synagogues and properties
owned by Jews in Ger-
many, 11 years after Ford
had made his apology.
Ford's reply to those who
asked that he return
Hitler's token of shame
was: "I'm going to keep it:'
Nazi propagandists were
linked with the Ford
organization during the
years of Nazi horror. Fritz
Kuhn, a proven Nazi agent,
was among those courted
by Henry Ford. The United
Auto Workers' Union ac-
cused the Ford Motor Com-
pany of "Nazi sympathies"
in the 1940s and the
famous car manufacturing
company had its name
besmirched with a link to
Hitlerism as a result of the
continuing prejudices of its
founding head. There were
also accusations that the
elder Ford was linked with
the Ku Klux Klan.
In 1942 Henry Ford com-
mented to a leading cor-
respondent: "I still believe
the international Jew is
responsible for the war."
