Hitler and the Mafia

6 posts in this topic

I had a random thought and one I looked into briefly but didn't find much about it. Basically, Hitler was against the Jewish race and the Mafia, not only the powerful New York Mafia (most from Italy/Sicily) but other powerful Mafia families from Europe were made up of a wide variety of Jewish decent. Its an interesting theory and thought to me that not one mafia family either being one in Naples, or the Genovese, Gambino, Luchesse, Colombo, Bonanno, ect tried to put a "hit" on Hitler. The Mafia was extremely strong back in the mid 1900's so its mind blowing to think about. Any ideas, information, or comments on this?

Thanks Guys!

Do a bit of research on mob activity during the second World War, it is fairly interesting, especially when one considers the players involved. The fact that you didn't bother to do even a basic google search is kind of sad, frankly.

Most jewish gangsters like Lansky etc weren't of Italian descent so weren't members of the mafia although they associated with them.Unless Hitler was directly affecting business they would have no reason to put a hit on him.The mafia did however help stop sabotage in the docks of New York and Luciano helped the allies with his contacts in Sicily during the liberation of Italy
