Nazi Nexus is the long-awaited wrap-up in a single explosive volume that details the pivotal corporate American connection to the Holocaust. The biggest names and crimes are all there. IBM and its facilitation of the identification and accelerated destruction of the Jews; General Motors and its rapid motorization of the German military enabling the conquest of Europe and the capture of Jews everywhere; Ford Motor Company for its political inspiration; the Rockefeller Foundation for its financing of deadly eugenic science and the program that sent Mengele into Auschwitz; the Carnegie Institution for its proliferation of the concept of race science, racial laws, and the very mathematical formula used to brand the Jews for progressive destruction.
EDWIN BLACK IS A DANGEROUS MAN. Edwin Black is a dangerous man. He tells us things we don't want to hear, like: "The scientific rationales that drove killer doctors at Auschwitz were first concocted on Long Island." His groundbreaking work, War Against the Weak is scary and necessary.

CHILLING. CONNECTS THE DOTS. Edwin Black connects the dots masterfully in Nazi Nexus to remind us that Hitler's horrors were as deeply rooted in American board rooms as they were in German war rooms. It's impossible to observe current world events without seeing Nazi Nexus as a chilling cautionary tale.
- Michael Hirsch
SIMPLE AND STUNNING. Backed by exhaustive research, Black's case in IBM and the Holocaust is simple and stunning: that IBM facilitated the identification and roundup of millions of Jews during the 12 years of the Third Reich. ... Black's evidence may be the most damning to appear yet against a purported corporate accomplice.
- Neal Rauhauser
A STARTLING READ. U.S. corporate involvement in the horrors of Nazi Germany is a story untold far too long. Black's detailed research into the U.S. companies who contributed materially and philosophically to the rise of Nazi Germany makes Nazi Nexus a startling read, even for those who thought themselves familiar with the history of the era.
