Nazi New York
It DID Happen Here
- 50 US dollars$50
On February, 20th, 1939—in honor of George Washington’s birthday—twenty thousand Nazis gathered in Madison Square Garden to cheer Adolph Hitler and boo “Franklin Rosenfeld” and the “Jew Deal.” No, this was not a scene from The Man In The High Castle—this really happened! In the run-up to World War II, New York City was a hotbed of Nazis, fascists, and anti-Semites; even after Pearl Harbor, some remained active, albeit more discreetly. A few were secretly working for the Abwehr (German military intelligence), but most were homegrown. Who were these deplorables? Where did they come from? What political, social, economic, religious, and historical forces created them? How different were they from “typical” Americans at the time—and how similar? And, in this age of Charlottesville, could they come again? · The man who dreamed of becoming the Fuhrer of the United States—and the groupies that adored him. · The Congressional candidate known as “Joe McNazi.” · The newspaper editor who trained Nazi saboteurs. · The Park Avenue doctor who ran a Nazi spy ring. · The Indiana Jones of Nazi spies. · The Nazi spy who was a double agent for the FBI. · The FBI agent who uncovered a Nazi spy ring—then let them go. · The twenty-one year old self-described “American Hitler.” · The automobile industrialist who published anti-Semitic literature. · The Catholic priest who preached hatred on the radio. · The aviation hero who blamed World War II on the Jews. · The future president’s father who was arrested at a KKK riot.
