Everyone knows that Harvard elitists are often the first to lecture the masses on their moral superiority in fighting racism, homophobia , and other ills of society. But, who helped the Nazi in a big way? None other than Harvard President James B. Conant. As historian Stephen H. Norwood reports (page 243):
James B. Conant was significantly involved in paroling vast numbers of Nazi war criminals, including those who engaged in the most heinous atrocities, when he served as U.S. high commissioner for Germany from 1953 to 1955, and as U.S. ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) from 1955 to 1957. He resigned as president of Harvard in January 1953.Harvard should look at their hands, they have the blood of 6 million Jews on them. You'll want to pick up Professor Norwood's important book from Cambridge University Press to learn more about Harvard's pro-Nazi activities which were helpful to the racist Nazi cause. The next time a Harvard student or professor lectures you on boycotting something: just think of Harvard and the Nazis. No word yet on whether the boycott Israel movement on Harvard's campus got their original inspiration from James B. Conant.
