Henry Morgenthau (May 11, 1891 – February 6, 1967) was the Jewish Secretary of the Treasury during the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt, financing the New Deal that made the Democratic Party the majority and instigated the greatest devastation against the ethnic German people when he formulated the Morgenthau Plan post WWII. This was strongly influenced by ‘Germany Must Perish’ by Theodore N. Kaufmam who advocated the genocidal sterilization of the German people. It involved the deindustrialisation of Germany including destruction of all heavy machinery and the flooding of the Ruhr Valley Mines. Germany was to become a pastoral land with forced food rationing to reduce the standard of living of the German population to the lowest in Europe. Germany was to be divided up into 2 countries North and south Germany. Morgenthau presented this plan to the Quebec Conference of September 16th 1944. It was approved by Roosevelt, Churchill and the Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie King.
