Morgenthau Plan for postwar Germany

In 1944, Morgenthau proposed the Morgenthau Plan for postwar Germany, calling for Germany to lose the heavy industry, and the Ruhr area “should not only be stripped of all presently existing industries but so weakened and controlled that it can not in the foreseeable future become an industrial area”. Germany would keep its rich farmlands in the east. However Stalin insisted on the Oder-Neisse border, which moved those farming areas out of Germany. Therefore the original Morgenthau plan had to be dropped, Gerhard Ludwig Weinberg argues, because it was “too soft on the Germans, not too hard as some still imagine.”

At the Second Quebec Conference on September 16, 1944, Roosevelt and Morgenthau persuaded the initially very reluctant British Prime Minister Winston Churchill to agree to the Morgenthau plan, likely using a $6 billion Lend Lease agreement to do so. Churchill chose however to narrow the scope of Morgenthau’s proposal by drafting a new version of the memorandum, which ended up being the version signed by the two statesmen. The gist of the signed memorandum was “This programme for eliminating the war-making industries in the Ruhr and in the Saar is looking forward to converting Germany into a country primarily agricultural and pastoral in its character.”

The plan faced opposition in Roosevelt’s cabinet, primarily from Henry L. Stimson, and when the plan was leaked to the press, there was public criticism of Roosevelt. The President’s response to inquiries was to deny the press reports. As a consequence of the leak, Morgenthau was in bad favor with Roosevelt for a time.

German Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels used the leaked plan, with some success, to encourage the German people to persevere in their war efforts so that their country would not be turned into a “potato field.”

General George Marshall complained to Morgenthau that German resistance had strengthened. Hoping to get Morgenthau to relent on his plan for Germany, Roosevelt’s son-in-law, Lt. Colonel John Boettiger, who worked in the United States War Department, explained to Morgenthau how the American troops that had had to fight for five weeks against fierce German resistance to capture Aachen and complained to him that the Morgenthau Plan was “worth thirty divisions to the Germans.”

In late 1944, Roosevelt’s election opponent, Thomas Dewey, said it was worth “ten divisions”. Morgenthau refused to relent.

On May 10, 1945, Truman signed the U.S. occupation directive JCS 1067. Continue reading

U.S. officials reveal diary of Hitler confidant, rediscovered after decades

U.S. officials reveal diary of Hitler confidant, rediscovered after decades

Long-lost diary of Alfred Rosenberg, one of the most influential insiders in Germany’s Nazi regime, has been recovered, U.S. officials announced Thursday.

The long-lost diary of Alfred Rosenberg, a confidant of Adolf Hitler and one of the most influential insiders in Germany’s Nazi regime, has been recovered, U.S. officials announced Thursday.

Rosenberg, one of the most notorious members of the Third Reich, was privy to much of the planning for the Nazi state, the extermination of European Jews, the planning and conduct of World War II and the occupation of Eastern Europe. He directed the systematic looting of Jewish-owned art, cultural resources and religious property throughout Europe.

The recovery of this historical document was announced by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton; U.S. Attorney Charles M. Oberly III, District of Delaware; and Henry Mayer, senior advisor on archives at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
