Dusseldorf Conference (1932)


a conference of big German entrepreneurs held in Düsseldorf in January 1932 and attended by over 300 people. The conference was called by Thyssen, Kirdorf, and other German monopolists who had supported and financed the Hitler movement for several years. Hitler’s speech demonstrated to the participants in the conference that the aims of the Nazis were in full accord with the interests of the German monopolies, which wanted to crush the labor movement and prepare a new war for the partition of the world. After the Düsseldorf conference the German financiers greatly increased their subsidies and support for the National Socialist Party.
