The Internal Security Subcommittee of the United States Senate
Committee on the Judiciary has recently published a series of
documents which present very detailed information on the extra-

ordinary activities of the Secretary of the Treasury during the
crucial years 1934-1945, Henry Morgenthau, Jr. These documents
are of the utmost interest, for they unveil the whole of the secret
history of the foreign policy of the American Government during
this period.

Entitled Morgenthau Diary, and published by the U S Government
Printing Ofhce in Washington in November 1967, the documents
are published i n a work which consists of two enormous volumes
of a total of some 1,650 pages dealing exclusively with American
policy wit h regard to the war, Germany, and Europe, and they were
prepared by the Subcommittee to investigate the administration
of the Internal Security Act and other Internal Security Laws of the
Committee on the Judiciary.

A s the foreword of the publication itself states, “Dr . Anthon y
Kubek, Professor of Histor y at Dallas University, and head of its
Histor y Department, acted as a consultant to the Subcommittee in
the selection of the documents and has written an introduction to
place events recounted i n the diary items i n their proper historical
perspective. The Kubek analysis is regarded as both brilliantly
presented and historically sound, and the Subcommittee is proud to
offer these additional portions of the Morgenthau Diaries together
with Dr . Kubek’s introduction, for the information of the Senate.”
This analysis is some 81 pages long, and i n the following pages I
shall give a resume of Dr . Kubek’s iindings, quoting extracts from
the most important passages.

“The Morgenthau Diaries, ” Dr . Kubek informs us, “ru n to
864 numbered volumes, with additional unnumbered volumes,
bringing the total to 900. Each contains about 300 pages. In all,
there are approximately one million words of transcripts of con-
versations among high-ranking Treasury officials .. . the documents
in the present volume deal primarily with the Treasury Department’s policy towards Germany during Worl d Wa r II and i n the
immediate postwar period. Thi s data not only serves a historical
purpose regarding events prior to and during the Second Worl d
War , but also indicates the serious problem of a Cabinet department exceeding its jurisdiction by presuming to make foreign
policy as a result of unauthorized, uncontrolled and often dangerous power exercised by nonelected officials.”
(Morgnithau Dinry , p. i)

A footnote at this point states that “Morgenthau himself recog- nized the potential usefulness of the Diaries. A week after his
resignation i n July 1945 he discussed with his aides the question of
what to do with the Diaries. Assistant Secretary Da n Bell warned
that there was material in the Diaries ’embarrassing’ to many
individuals because ‘we have talked quite frankly in your con- ferences about a lot of people’. Morgenthau’s secretary, Mrs . H .
Klotz , agreed. The Treasury Attorney, J. Pehle, was worried that the
Republicans, if they ‘got in ‘ and began ‘investigating the Roosevelt
regime’ might subpoena the Diaries. H e advised, therefore, that the
Diaries ‘be carefully edited and the personal and flippant material
deleted’. This, he told Morgenthau, ‘would be i n your own interest
and i n the public interest’ ” (ibid.).

These documents, therefore, published by the Government of the
United States, bear an absolutely indisputable stamp of official
authenticity, and they reveal the enormous influence which his
Jewish advisers—Bernard Baruch, H . Morgenthau Jr., Harr y Dexter
Whit e and others—exercised on President Roosevelt. A t a crucial
epoch in the history of the world a group of Jews i n political circles
succeeded i n secretly orientating the foreign poficy of the United
States, and they played a major role i n the development of events in
Europe. It is not stating it too strongly to say that it was a question
of Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau, surrounded by exclusively
Jewish collaborators and advisers, pursuing a policy which was
dictated purely by Jewish concerns and without for one moment
caring about American interests.

Profiting from the friendship which existed between himself and
President Roosevelt, Morgenthau completely exceeded his position,
and although he was really only Secretary of the Treasury, he
nevertheless took control of American foreign policy during the
years 1934-1945, ignoring the Ministers of War and State Department who were normally the properly qualified men to handle these
affairs, but who were powerless to oppose him and who sometimes
were quite simply ignorant of decisions which had been taken i n
secret by Morgenthau and Roosevelt.
