family at Farview, the Schiff summer home overlooking Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island, Maine. Jacob Schiff's wife, Therese, is to Schiff's right.His daughter, Freida Schiff Warburg and her husband Felix Warburg are standing behind Jacob. Felix took over Kuhn Loeb when Jacob died. He also owned the Manhattan Bank which was to merge with the Rockefellers' Chase Bank in 1955.
The hairdresser's son, John J. McCloy went on become a trusted friend and lawyer to the Schiff, Warburg and Rockefeller families. The families would trust McCloy with their most delicate assignments.
Here is McCloy in Dealey Plaza, as the Rockefeller/Warburg man on the Warren Commission it was McCloy's job to make sure no one suspected that his patrons were behind the JFK assassination.
Because McCloy's island patrons wanted Europe to clean up Europe's undesirable populace to pave the way for theE U, the hairdressser's son, as assistant Secretary of War during WWII, prevented the railroad tracks of Auschwitz from being bombed claiming it wasn't practical to fly planes over the camp. This was a lie for which he would take a lot of heat for. Better him than Rothschild, Warburg or Rockefeller.
After the war the hairdresser's son freed many Nazi war criminals on behalf of his patrons. A shocked Eleanor Roosevelt wrote McCloy:"Why are we freeing so many Nazis".She was obviously out of the loop. FDR was not. I guess they kept secrets from each other. In this case that was a good thing.
The next time you wonder about who killed JFK or who was behind the Nazis remember the ambitious hairdresser from Philadelphia and follow the career of her able son, Jack.
