Deutsche Bank – An Illustrated History

Munich: Piper 2007, 320 pp., approx. 500 images,
bilingual English / German
EUR 39.90

This book tells a story in pictures that could hardly be more colourful, diverse or replete with historical detail. It concerns the rise of Deutsche Bank from the times of the German Empire up to our era of globalization; it is about financial transactions that influenced the course of history, and about daring enterprises throughout the world. Above all, though, it is about the destinies of people who worked for the company, and about their everyday lives. These pictures reflect not only the evolution of a big bank, but also one and a half centuries of economic and Social history.

Jonathan Steinberg - The Deutsche Bank and its Gold Transactions during the Second World War

München: C.H. Beck, 1999, 176pp.
EUR 10.00

Gold - robbed from central banks in occupied countries and from the victims of concentration camps - played a crucial role in financing the import of strategic materials for the Nazi war effort. Most of the Reichsbank gold sales went to foreign central banks, but some gold sales were also made to German commercial banks including the Deutsche Bank. This is a report on the gold transactions of the Deutsche Bank during the Second World War. The report tells where the gold came from and where it went.
