There are a number of famous Warburgs who are associated with the epynomous Euro American banking dynasty but the name Sidney isn’t exactly among them – at least not in a nonfictional sense. As best as we are able to determine, Sidney is a pen name for a Warburg or a close associate who possessed an intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the Wall Street financial elite who directly financed Hitler's rise to power and his war machine.
Sidney has become famous due to the research of Antony Sutton who produced a number of volumes on western relations with totalitarian governments of Europe. Dr Sutton discovered an obscure tome published in 1933 by Van Holkema & Warendorf, entitled De Geldbronnen van Het Nationaal-Socialisme (Drie Gesprekken Met Hitler). The New York Times oddly enough reported publication of this obscure book of which only three known copies were known to survive its banning.
The book describes the efforts of western financiers, led by John Rockefeller, Jr. to finance German dictator Adolph Hitler’s rise to power in order to overcome the French grip on Germany. The French vice was preventing the other Western powers from recovering their war reparations.
The book was originally published in Dutch from which an English translation was made. The British authorities under the auspices of the British Museum have sequestered this book by withdrawing it from circulation or access.
One copy made its way to Switzerland where it was translated into German from which Dr Sutton made an English translation.
It should be noted that other renditions of this book exist but they are not based upon the original 1933 edition. One version is Sonderegger's Spanischer Sommer published in 1947, and the other is Werner Zimmerman's Liebet Eure Feinde. These interpreted versions include numerous expansions attributing a substantial amount of anti-Semitism to the bankers - a characteristic entirely absent in the 1933 edition.
After just a few days on the market, the publisher recalled the book because Sidney Warburg did not exist. From here the laughs grow louder. I am not sure how the complainant was able to prove that a person did not exist. And surely the publisher met with someone who authored or represented the author of the book. Books do not write themselves – even in the evolutionists’ most zany fantasy. In any event, a pen name is a very common authorial device of which I am absolutely certain the publishers were cognizant. Thus the claim of the author’s non-existence is totally absurd.
James Paul Warburg signed an affidavit in Nazi Franz von Papen’s Memoirs published in 1953 denying the authenticity or existence of the book and Sidney Warburg. Oddly enough Warburg claims to have never seen or read the book yet he disavows its authenticity! On the other hand, his affidavit was directed to the Sonderegger book which as we noted is not a version of the original 1933 book.
Finally, as Sutton asks, why would an alleged anti-Nazi such as James Warburg, whose family was persecuted by the Nazis, use a Nazi’s publication to denounce anti-Semitism? His denial is a non-denial of the substance of the 1933 book.
I. G. Shoup, the translator of the original Dutch book, said that he took notes from a Warburg living in England to translate into the published version.
Sutton notes that the author of the book possessed detailed knowledge which the average man on the street would not know. For example, "von Heydt" was the original name for the Dutch Bank voor Handel en Seheepvaart N.V. – a fact which most random forgers would not have. He also notes that Guaranty Trust is not a household name even in its native New York. Thus there is strong plausible reason to connect authorship with a well connected banker – which role a Warburg would nicely fill.
Our take is that the book is authentic and written by some Warburg or very close associate who was trying to draw attention to the growing power and aims of Hitler. The solid documentation we have connecting the Warburgs of I. G. Farben who gave money directly to Hitler give very sound credibility to the authenticity of the Sidney Warburg work.
Finally, the determined efforts by authorities today to suppress the book speaks volumes about the sensitive nature of it. The banksters stand guilty of the murder and deaths of at least 60 million people.
Unfortunately, when the banksters discovered the leak, they went full bore at destroying it because they dared not reveal the power the behind the Nazi throne.
