Rare Nazi book donated to holocaust museum

“When a La Grange Park Public Library employee noticed the German word for secret written inside the front cover of an old book donated to the library, she knew it wasn’t the typical anonymous gift. An envelope tucked inside its pages gave more clues to its significance a document of the Third Reich’s industrial build-up to World War II in Germany. The return address was for Paul Pleiger, who was selected by Nazi party leader Hermann Göring, to oversee the industrial push to produce iron, steel and other material necessities for conducting the war.”
