You will read in the passages that follow that "Heinrich" Ford was a role model for the ascendant Adolf Hitler from his days in Munich at the dawn of the 1920s. Displayed upon the coffee table in the reception room of National Socialist German Workers' Party headquarters were free copies of Ford's "investigation of the Jewish Question," an anthology of articles from The Dearborn Independent, his personal newspaper: Der internationale Jude, ein Weltproblem: das erste amerikanische Buch uber die Judengfrage, herausgegeben von Henry Ford. Indeed, as historian Norman Cohn declared in his classic work, Warrant for Genocide, "The International Jew probably did more than any other work to make The Protocols [of the Elders of Zion] world-famous."
