Progressive mogul George Soros has recently compared Donald Trump’s victory to the rise of the Nazis and Hitler. He has titled his Op-Ed for project Syndicate, “George Soros brings his personal history to bear on the threat posed by today’s ascendant populists.”
George Soros lived through the Holocaust as a child of a Jewish family, and he uses his history to compare modern populist movements to that of Nazi Germany. However, like most powerful men, Soros also has some skeletons in his closet.
During an interview with 60 minutes, the billionaire acknowledged to helping the Nazis as a child during the holocaust. Soros and his “Godfather” sold out Jewish neighbors and helped Nazis get into their homes to confiscate property.
Watch a segment of the interview for “60 Minutes” from 1998 below between Soros and Steve Kroft.
Kroft: You are a Hungarian Jew who escaped the Holocaust by posing as a Christian?
Kroft: And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps?
Soros: Right, I was 14 years old…
Kroft: …My understanding is you went out with this protector of yours, who swore you were his adopted godson.
Kroft: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from Jews.
Soros: Yes, that’s right.
Kroft: That sounds like an experience that would send lots of folks to the psychiatric couch for many many years. Was it difficult?
Soros: Not at all, not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t see the connection, but it created no problem at all.
Kroft: No feeling of guilt, for example, that I’m Jewish and here I am watching these people go, I could just as easily be one of them that I could be there for example that I should be there, none of that?
Soros: Well, of course, I could be on the other side, or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense I shouldn’t be there…if I weren’t there, of course I wasn’t doing it, but someone else would be taking it away anyhow, whether I was there or not I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. I had no role in taking away property. So I had no guilt.
