Fact Check: Rothschild Family NOT Behind Nuremberg Trials and European Union History Wrong

Was the Rothschild family in charge of the Nuremberg trials between 1945 and 1946 in Germany and does it rule the European Union? No that's not true: The Nuremberg trials, which were held after World War Two with Nazi leaders standing trial for crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and conspiracy to commit any of the preceding crimes, were led by judges from the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. Not one of them bore the Rothschild Family name.

The Rothschild family doesn't have a decision-making position in the European Union either. The EU is not ruled or controlled by one particular party or state. It is governed by the principle of representative democracy, with citizens of member states directly represented at the EU level in the European Parliament and the Member States represented in the European Council and the Council of the European Union.

The claim appeared in a video (archived here) on TikTok, published by @rastislavkostk on July 26, 2023, without a title. It stated:

The Nuremberg trials were organized, arranged, and falsified by Zionistic families, like the Rothschilds, whose descendants rule and hold the whole European Union by the neck.

The Rothschild family is a Jewish European banking dynasty, with a banking house dating back to the 18th century. The Rothschilds had considerable economic influence in Europe during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Conspiracy theories about this family have been present in Europe since the 19th century and have been driven by antisemitism and anti-Zionism. These theories, some of which claim that Hitler was a Rothschild or that the family owns many of the world's central banks, have been the subject of many conspiracy theories, debunked routinely. There is no evidence that the Rothschild family runs the European Union or the banking system, or that it stands behind historical events such as the Nuremberg trials.

A Slovak extremist spread the debunked claim, Daniel Bombic, also known as Danny Kollar, who is the subject of three European arrest warrants. The arrest warrants are based on accusations of disseminating extremist material, engaging in cyberbullying and revealing personal information about individuals who have incurred his disfavor. According to Dennik N, Bombic is attempting to present himself as the most prominent radical among Slovak purveyors of disinformation. His videos routinely contain profanity, anti-Semitism, or homophobia. During the current Slovak election campaign, Bombic became an ally of several politicians, including the party leading the Slovak public opinion polls, Smer-SD.
