Henry Ford attends a concert with Siegfried Wager, son of German composer Richard Wagner, and his wife Winifred. Siegried hopes to get Ford to agree to finance the Nazi movement in Germany and reportedly fails.

In 1977, though, Winifred states in an interview that during the concert "Ford told me that he had helped finance Hitler" and, furthermore, he may be willing to extend further financing should it be needed.

No solid evidence is found for the rumor that Henry Ford finances the Nazi movement, however, just reports and rumors. Given just how similar Henry Ford's anti-Semitism is to that of Adolf Hitler, and just how much influence Ford's views have on Hitler as well as other Nazis, these reports cannot be dismissed as completely implausible.
