    I found a link to a page regarding Jews in the German military in WW2

    http://www.kansaspress.ku.edu/righit.htm

    It`s interesting to see jews in the German army at the time, but did they know of the horrible atrocities that were taking place in the camps? This goes to show that not all Germans were Nazis at the time, so let this be A tribute to those jews who fought for there country right under the nose of Hitler, who fought for their country and not their fuhrer.

    Finland was the only Axis member where Jews weren’t persecuted. Even the Finnish right extremists were tolerant. In 1939 there was some 1700 Jews in Finland. Approximately 260 Finish Jews participated in the Winter War, 200 of them served at the front. In total, about 300 Finnish Jews took part in the three wars from 1939 to 1945.

    There's an old saying. "The best place to hide from the police is in the police station." I believe there was a fairly recent special on the Military Channel on this subject.

    You are forgetting Japan here, they protected their Jews. Not for any love of Jews exactly, but because as Jewish Bankers had helped them out after the Russo-Japanese War, they (Japan) figured it might be a good idea to shelter Jews for post-war times when they might need loans again. Win or loose, financial help is always welcome.

    During the WW2, Japan was a safe refuge for Jews. About 5,000 migrated to the Dutch West Indies with Japanese visas issued by the Japanese consul to Lithuania. Despite German requests, the Japanese government refused to establish anti-Semitic policies. Finally, there is something good about the WW2 Japs.

    There was a plan (by Aikawa Yoshisuke et. al.) to attract Jewish investments in Japan but the plan was limited due to alliance with Nazi Germany. Jews aren't that rich as some people want to suggest, they are nice people just like any other ethnicity.

    But, the original post deals with "Mischlinge" who fought at the axis side. Manstein, for example, is of Jewish ancestry and yet was deeply involved in the persecution of Jews. Heydrich is under suspicion.

    You wouldn't believe, but it is entirely true: the Fuehrer himself wasn't a "kosher" Arian. It is indisputable, scientifically proven fact. According to DNA tests, the Fuehrer is a proud owner of a haplogroup E1b1b typical for Algerians, Berbers Libians and Shephardic Jews! :eek:

    I wouldn't say that the Fuhrer was lying about his ancestry, but he wasn't telling the truth. :D

    PS: A link:DNA tests reveal 'Hitler was descended from the Jews and Africans he hated'

    They aren't named in the loans for the Japanese post 1906 after Roosevelt's Portsmouth Treaty ended the Russo-Japanese War, but the Japanese used that as a reason for their giving the eastern European Jews travel visas across the USSR, and safe harbor in Japan. They (Japanese) much like the Germans post WW1; thought that all Jews knew or were related to each other, and those in other occupations would have contacts in the banking industry.

    The Rothchild family were Jewish, and one of the largest global banking concerns for centuries. Perhaps that is where the concept comes from?

    I don't know who the "Jewish bankers"were, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Rothschild's were involved. They were the first bankers who came to mind.

    Indeed! I don't understand why some people want to single out Jewish bankers and expose them as "Rich Jews". That's exactly what Nazis did too. All rich Germans financed Nazis and made extraordinary profits from the Holocaust. Nobody mentions here the "Rich Germans" or "German Conspiracy". Vast majority of victims of Holocaust were poor Jews from the bottom of the society.

    Edict of Expulsion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Well there is a long, long history of successful Jewish Banking which conflicts with early Christian belief. As you know Christians were forbidden from charging interest on loans - Jews were not. Many foreign wars in the Medieval period were subsidised with Jewish gold.

    The first expulsion of the Jews was actually in England under Edward I, "Hammer of the Scots", conqueror of the Welsh and also a Crusader. Since his wars and castle building had cost a fortune, a neat way of satisfying his religious faith and not paying his bills was to expel the Jews.
