Henry Rothschild (born 1920)

[aa6][ GDrive ]

This page of notes is for Henry Rothschild, born in 1920. His name is of interest as he was a senior member of Philipp Brothers Incorporated ( where he was a mentor to Marc Rich ), both before and after its acquisition by Engelhard Corporation . Naturally, any person with the last name of Rothschild is of interest.

It is extremely difficult to locate data on this Henry Rothschild (born 1920) . This page, while not well organized, is probably the most comprehensive source available.

It is believed (since it has been stated in reference books) that Henry Rothschild (born 1920) is not directly related to the Rothschild family that has made its fortune in banking, but this is being validated.

Henry Rothschild began learning (and working) at a very young age. "[Henry] Rothschild had become a lehrling in Cologne, Germany, at the age of ten [..]." [aa1][ GDrive ]

1936 - Apprenticeship to the Lissauer firm in Cologne, Germany

"[Henry] Rothschild was also apprenticed rather early, at age sixteen, to the Lissauer firm in Cologne." [aa5][ GDrive ] .

" As we already saw in the cases of Salo Floersheim, Ullmann and Jesselson, an apprenticeship in Germany was no light matter. It usually gave the young man a thorough training in the basics of commercial matters, plus a good knowledge of the specialties of the firm. In the case of Lissauer, it was ore business, and also residues, scrap and metals, as well as chemicals."

1939 - Junior employee of Hoschild, in Bolivia

"[Henry Rothschild was,] in 1939 a junior employee of Hochschild, a fresh import from Europe and quite unknown to the Bolivian authorities. He was in a word, rather expendable, andt he Hochschild firm used him to take food, blankets and clothing to the imprisoned men." [aa5][ GDrive ] . Henry Rothschild would have been 19 years old at this time.

Baja ‐ or Lower ‐ California is a Mexican state that is separated from the mainland by the Gulf of California. It is rugged, difficult country. There, south of the town of Santa Rosalia, a rancher one day found colourful nodules that turned out to be copper ore. The find eventually came to be identified as three bodies of rather complex ores. The grade of the first outcroppings was ranging 20-25"o copper. Work began in 1872. The ore was handpicked and lightered on to ships that sailed for Europe.

in 1885, the Mexican govemment granted a concession to exploit the find to a French group controlled by the Rothschilds which set up the Compagnie du Bole-o. They opened the mine, and built a smelter, a port, a power plant and even a 45 kilometre railroad. By 1894, El Boleo produced about 10000 tonnes of copper matte and black copper per year. In 1924, the smelter was rebuilt and the product was thereafter known as blister copper.

The operation was highly suecessful and profitable for the shareholders in the early years. But by the 19305, costs had risen, prices and grades had declined, and 1-21 Boleo’s useful life seemed over. But the demand for copper during World War 11 and eventually tax concessions and then subsidies kept the operation going until quite recently.

Henry Rothschild, of Hartsdale, New York, cleared up many questions I had about the Mina Matilde story. Mr Rothschild was one of the senior executives of Philipp Brothers involved in the story.

The end of the war thus found the Guggenheims vastly richer and more powerful than at its outbreak; but also with a somewhat tarnished reputation ‑ for profiteering and poor labour relations. They were probably also by then the second richest ‐ next to be Rothschilds - Jewish family in the world.“

Henry Rothschild was an example of a key personnel member who was "eagerly recruited" by "Philipp Brothers" from "Hochschild". [See https://www.immigrantentrepreneurship.org/entry.php?rec=167#_edn25 }:

"Several of the new traders were recruited away from Moritz Hochschild’s organization. Hochschild, born and raised in Germany and related to the owners of Metallgesellschaft, had from the 1920s onwards become one of the dominant figures in the Bolivian tin trade. Known as one of the three Bolivian “tin barons,” he controlled about 25 percent of all Bolivian tin mines.[24] To run his business organization, he hired mainly German Jews, several of whom had prior experience with German metal trading companies. Yet Hochschild found it increasingly difficult to operate in Bolivia in the 1940s and early 1950s. After the disastrous Chaco War of 1932-1935, Bolivian political life became increasingly volatile and the country experienced revolts, coups, and civil wars. In the process, Hochschild’s company experienced several setbacks. The situation culminated when a new Bolivian government nationalized all of Hochschild’s mining assets in 1952. Philipp Brothers eagerly recruited key personnel like Adolfo Blum and Henry Rothschild from Hochschild.[25]"

[25] The account of Hochschild and his organization is mainly based on Helmut Waszkis, Dr. Moritz (Don Mauricio) Hochschild 1881-1965: The Man and His Companies. A German Jewish Mining Entrepreneur in South America (Madrid: Iberoamericana, 2001).

From "Metal Men: Marc Rich and the $10 Billion Scam"

See [aa1][ GDrive ] )

Nowhere did the company’s kitchen-table style of business prove itself better than Bolivia, where Philipp Brothers remains the major conduit for the troubled Andean nation’s outpouring of tin, tungsten, and antimony. The association between Philipp Brothers and Bolivia began in 1927, when Arturo Gruenebaum opened the company’s first La Paz office, and has transcended the 356 assorted coups, elections, military upheavals, and states of emergency that have rocked the country ever since. One of the men who went there was Henry Rothschild, whom Philipp Brothers had lured away from Associated Metals in 1946. By the time Rothschild had arrived at Philipp Brothers, Jesselson had become the firm’s top trade negotiator. Rothschild, who would eventually run the trading arm of Philipp Brothers alongside Jesselson, quick- ly assumed the role of troubleshooter. “I got the fireworks and Jes lit the fuse,” Rothschild says. “We were the perfect team.” Rothschild was no simple high- road executive who traveled the world just to negotiate for minerals. He was the personification of the Philipp Brothers trader. Rothschild crawled down into Bolivian mines, picked away at veins of tungsten ore alongside coca leaf- chewing miners, and had the bejesus scared out of him on more than one occasion when the decomposed corpses of five-hundred-year-old Indian min- ers fell out of ancient underground holes and buried him in pitch black tun- nels three hundred feet beneath the Altiplano. Such feats, however, were part of the job description for all Philipp Brothers traders.

...

Philipp Brothers, the largest raw-material trading company in the world, was scouring American universities for young men they could snatch and mold into lehrlings—the Yiddish word used to describe young men apprentic- ing to be traders. The man in charge of the program was Henry Rothschild, who, like everyone else at Philipp Brothers, had escaped the Nazi holocaust.

...

Rothschild had become a lehrling in Cologne, Germany, at the age of ten and had no problem encouraging Rich to sacrifice a college education to become a trader at Philipp Brothers. The company, in fact, preferred to edu- cate their people in-house, the traditional European approach and the Philipp Brothers’ way of doing business. Lehrlings were trained to trade every com- modity known to man. The company was run like a large family. Department heads such as Rothschild acted like stern fathers, not executive vice presi- dents. And in Marc Rich, Rothschild sensed something special.

In this will construction proceeding, the respondent, Susan Nieschlag, a cousin of the decedent’s predeceased spouse, moves, pursuant to CPLR 3212, for summary judgment and an order determining that the decedent’s collections of stamps, platinum, gold and silver coins and various currencies (“the collections”) constitute tangible personal property specifically bequeathed to her under Article TWO (A) of the decedent’s will dated March 22, 2010. The motion is opposed by the executor, who contends that the collections are part of the residuary estate that passes to an irrevocable trust established by the decedent with numerous beneficiaries, principally charities (“the trust”). The executor is the trustee. Pursuant to a stipulation of the parties, a SCPA 2103 proceeding commenced by the executor against Nieschlag seeking turnover and inspection of stamps allegedly gifted to her by the decedent’s spouse is being held in abeyance until determination of this motion. A summary judgment motion by the executor in an underlying will construction proceeding was denied (see Matter of Rothschild, NYLJ, Mar. 18, 2014, at 23, col 1 [Sur Ct, Bronx County 2014]).

The decedent died on June 2, 2012, and his spouse, Gertrude F. Rothschild, predeceased him on November 11, 2010. They fled Germany during the 1930′s to escape the Holocaust, married in 1950 and had no children. The decedent was a successful commodities trader, and his spouse was a scientist and professor at Columbia University. They executed similar trusts and wills on March 22, 2010. The executor is the fiduciary of the spouse’s estate and a co-trustee of her trust. Although the decedent’s will was admitted to probate by this court, the will of the decedent’s spouse was admitted to probate by the Surrogate’s Court, Westchester County. The decedent’s will and trust leave approximately 70 percent of the net distributable estate to charities, and the remaining 30 percent remains in trust for designated individuals with the balance passing to charities upon their deaths. It is uncontroverted that the decedent and the spouse did not sell any of the stamps, coins, bullion or currency. Their collections were not maintained in the traditional way or displayed in their various homes but were secreted in various locations in their Hartsdale, New York house. Article TWO (A) of the decedent’s will provides that:

“I give all of my tangible personal property (other than currency) including without limitation, wearing apparel, personal effects, jewelry,

....

Nieschlag replies that although the executor refers to the Nieschlags as “distant relatives” they are the only family that the spouse had, both the decedent and the spouse named Nieschlag as a fiduciary in prior wills, and she provides affidavits from her husband and daughter concerning their close relationship with the decedent and spouse, who gave them substantial gifts. Nieschlag concludes that the decedent and the spouse intended that she and her family receive the collections, whether through inter vivos gifts or by virtue of their bequest to Nieschlag of “tangible personal property excluding currency, without limitation.”

Sensitive Assignments:

When Rich joined the company in 1954, Philipp Brothers still essentially consisted of a tightly knit group of German-Jewish immigrants. The names of the major players who were active in the company provided an indication of their heritage: Ludwig Jesselson, Adolfo Blum, and Henry Rothschild. They were all pioneers of economic globalization who helped write trading history. These men became mentors to Rich, whose family was known in trading circles and whose father came from the tragedy that was Germany—just as they did. He had the best teachers in the business. Most important, Rich had the strength of will and the patience to listen, observe, and learn.

So Rich learned how to become a commodities trader from the ground up. After two years he became a junior trader, and Henry Rothschild soon took him under his wing. Rothschild, who was not a member of the banking family, was born in Bochum, Germany, entered the commodities business when he was sixteen, and [Henry Rothschild] had previously done business with Marc Rich’s father. He is described as a shy, taciturn, and quick-thinking analyst. The master and apprentice were kindred spirits when it came to their similar ways of thinking.

[Henry] Rothschild was an extremely demanding boss who was responsible for the South American market at Philipp Brothers and for developing the firm’s expanding network in Europe. He increasingly delegated the day-to-day business to Rich, who effectively became his assistant. “I was fascinated by the size of the market,” explains Rich. “Take oil or aluminum. You can find those materials in almost any product you touch. The whole world needs them, from east to west and north to south.” It was a fascination that would remain. The first commodity he personally traded was Bolivian tin.

[...]

[Marc] Rich was now the man to see when it came to mercury. It was his first business coup, and it earned significant profits for Philipp Brothers. The young dealer had not been at Philipp Brothers very long, yet this success strengthened his position enormously within the company. It was proof to his superiors that he had the talent to spot opportunities, the courage to grasp them, the patience to successfully conclude a deal, and enough common sense to avoid excessive risks.

When the manager of the Bolivian office of Philipp Brothers had to travel back to England because his mother was having an operation, it was immediately clear who would replace him. Henry Rothschild sent [Marc] Rich for six months to the same South American country where David Rich had also done business. Bolivia was a dangerous place known for its political and economic instability. A nationalistic movement had brought about a revolution in 1952, and the country’s large mines had subsequently been nationalized. The South American country has been an important source of silver, tin, and tungsten since the sixteenth century. Rich not only learned perfect Spanish in La Paz, Bolivia, he also picked up the essentials of doing business in politically volatile countries. He was evidently very adept in his dealings. A partner at the time relates how he always kept the risks under control und managed to establish good contacts thanks to his quiet, modest style.

Following his success in Bolivia, Philipp Brothers sent its rising star to South Africa for the first time in 1958. At that point the country was still in the Commonwealth, and the trade boycott against the apartheid regime had not yet begun. It was a journey to his first defeat. Rich thrashed out the details of the sale of a manganese ore mine for months on end, and he remembers the negotiations as being “very tedious, very long.” In the end, after six months of negotiating, “I couldn’t conclude the purchase. I had to come home with empty hands.” He did not hear a single word of criticism from his mentors Rothschild and Jesselson. They both knew that Rich would profit from the experience.

Despite this single setback, he had clearly demonstrated his capacity for sensitive assignments. He had proved that he could stay calm in chaotic situations. He was persistent and innovative without ever becoming foolhardy. More than anything else, he was enterprising and resourceful. Those were exactly the qualities that Philipp Brothers was counting on in early 1959. A bearded revolutionary was in the process of rewriting history in Cuba. Philipp Brothers, which had enjoyed close business ties with the Batista regime, was not amused. It needed a troubleshooter.

The Hirsch-owned firm in Amsterdam, NV Groma, now became Jesselson’s employer. Many German Jewish firms were moving to Holland to continue their business from there. Julius Philipp had done so. as had the Lissauer firm from Cologne. Dr. Menno Liss‑ auer himself, and his son-in-law, Walter Rothschild, moved to New York to manage their US firm, Associated Metals.4

{{{ Lissauer - I think that is where Marc Rich worked? }}}

96-97

Back in Bolivia, in June of 1939 President Busch had brought about major changes in the business. He had signed a decree that the Banco Minero would henceforth have a monopoly to buy the production of the small mines, and that all foreign currency proceedS from the exports of mining products be delivered to the government. This was the effective end of the rescate business

which Hochschild, Duncan Fox and Philipp Brothers, as well as others, had worked for years to set up. Admittedly, the business had been profitable, but at the same time, the loans, advances and supplies that the ore buyers had made available to the miners had constructively contributed to the development of dozens of mines. And now, the business was terminated overnight. The ore buyers decided not to accept this, and a letter was soon circulating, signed by Dr. Mauricio Hochschild and Adolfo Blum on behalf of the Hochschild group, Arturo Gruenebaum on behalf of Philipp Brothers aswell asby Duncan Fox, recommendingto the miners to protest the decree. Busch took this asan affront and aseconomic sabotage, and he ordered the principal ore buyers imprisoned. He was determined to punish them in an exemplary way, especially Dr. Hochschild who was to be shot. The others were to stay in jail for a number of years. A cabinet session that was to decide the fate of the prisonerssplit evenly on the issue and it took long discussions before Busch could finally be dissuaded from taking draconian measures. After a few weeks they were all pardoned; Busch com‑ mitted suicide in August; andthe matter was eventually forgotten, except for the decree which remainedin force.

This is the first time that we meet Henry Rothschild. He was in 1939 a junior employee of Hochschild,a fresh import from Europe and quite unknown to the Bolivian authorities. He was in a word, rather expendable, andthe Hochschild firm used him to take food, blankets and clothing to the imprisoned men.

Gruenebaum at once closed the Potosi office. The Oruro office also ceased buying from the small miners but it continued to buy from the medium-sized ones. The firm now decided to move to La Paz which quickly became the main office of Philipp Brothers in Bolivia. Gruenebaum ran the head office, and Max Goldschmidt took care of Oruro. In La Paz they now began to buy from Banco Minero and, eventually, also from Comibol, the Corporagion Minera deBolivia, which after Bolivia’s expropriationof the big tin mines of Patino, Aramayo and Hochschildin 1952, was to become the main operator of these mines.

102-103

HENRY ROTHSCHILD

It was early in 1946 that Gruenebaum left Bolivia for New York. Soon he needed an assistant, and the right man seemed to be available.

Henry Rothschild was just twenty-six when he arrived in New York and visited Gruenebaum. They had met before, in Bolivia, when Rothschild had brought food and blankets to the prison where Gruenebaum shared a cell with Hochschild and Blum.

HERE>>>>

Born in 1920 in Bochum, Germany, Rothschild was also apprenticed rather early, at age sixteen, to the Lissauer firm in Cologne.

As we already saw in the cases of Salo Floersheim, Ullmann and Jesselson, an apprenticeship in Germany was no light matter. It usually gave the young man a thorough training in the basics of commercial matters, plus a good knowledge of the specialties of the firm. In the case of Lissauer,it was ore business, and also resi‑ dues, scrap and metals, as well aschemicals.

In Bolivia, Hochschild had let him begin in the accounting department in La Paz, but he was soon transferred to Potosi where he spent the next six years in different positions in the sampling area, in a mill, in underground mine workings and in the adminis‑ trative office. When he left Bolivia after the war, he was probably one of the most experienced managers of medium sized mines.

But six years in Bolivia had been enough. The war was over and v of 1946 he traveled to the United States and th - _ Lrossea the country by laus for three months, “to get to kentbwrfiise lan When he d13131“? fofr 2} 10th the uniqueness of his back‑ ground and the use u ness 0 1115 experience to the growing Philipp ”Brothers organization, must have struck Gruenebaum and the oth€f5~ Nevertheless, it still took them a week to make up their minds; Philipp Brothers gained and Hochschild lost. When Hochs‑ child learned that Rothschild had left, he tried everything hecould to rehire him, even offering the managership in Arequipa, Peru, and Sao Paulo, Brazrl. But Rothschild had decion Philipp

It was not only Rothschild’s background and training that proved very valuable to Philipp Brothers but also, as time was to show, his peculiar kind of mind. Gifted with acuttingintelligence and a light‑ ning fast intellect,hewas again and again to surprise associates and outsiders alike With his ability to analyze, absorb and digest a sub‑

‘ect, before others had even begun to understand what it was all about. His memory was phenomenal and no doubt contributed to his analytical powers. On the other hand, he was also shy and reti‑ cent, and thus not the most ideal person for outside contacts, which in turn was very much Jesselson’s strength.

Years later, after Ullmann’s death, and when Jesselson began to miss the analytical powers of his original mentor, he was to turn more and more to Henry Rothschild, and the two came to form over the years what several associates were to call “a remarkable team.” Jesselson, who always bubbled over with ideas, was to find in Rothschild the ideal partner who could put the right accents on his ideas, provide the technical foundations for many a new busi‑ ness, and play “devil’s advocate.” He was also to become, among the inner circle of the group to lead the firm in the 19605 and 19705 the one who had the most knowledge and understanding of legal matters.

118

Already in 1944, Adolfo Blum hadjoined. His story will be told in chapter 8. In 1946, aswe saw, Henry Rothschild was hired and became Gruenebaum’s assistant, at first doing traffic work, then writing and then supervising the 5hipping and the invoicing paper‑ work for the Bolivian business. But beginning in 1948, he also

began to travel, and he took on more and more management func‑ tions, such as supervising the organization of the foreign offices, hiring, and looking after the many intricate legal and administrat‑ ive details. Once Adolfo Blum began to organize the group in EurOpe, Rothschild became the indispensable link in New York who kept control and supervision over what already in the early

19505 was quickly becoming a sprawling world-wide organization. One Ben-Ami joined, a former member of the Irgun, and Jules Chender. The latter, born in Moskau in 1920, and originally called Yuli Chenderoff, had behind him a colorful career in France when he arrived in the US in 1941. He began to work in a factory as machinist, spoke at first little English but nevertheless went to nightschool at N Y U , considered himself a man of intellect, thought business would be his last choice and really wanted to become a journalist. But beside everything else, he was rabidly in favor of lsrael. In the 19405, when the Zionists were struggling to get supplies into Palestine, Chender, familiar with the machine tool industry and the factories and warehouses and shipping agents that dealt with such equipment, was instrumental in arranging for the

urchase and shipment to Palestine of arms and arms-making machinery hidden in huge transformer cases. A few years later, in

1954, Chender joined Philipp Brothers and became one of the

film’s foremost copper traders. He died in 1973 at age fifty-three.

In September, when I began my research into the Zionist network behind the destruction of the steel, I called the Hugo Neu company, which was one of the two New Jersey scrapyards that "recycled" the steel. Hugo Neu was a German Jewish immigrant from Fürth (like Henry Kissinger, another Rothschild agent) who came to America and worked as a bank clerk with Seligman & Co. before becoming the head of Associated Metals and Minerals Corporation (AMMC) in New York in the 1930s with his German Jewish fellows, Meno Lissauer and Walter M. Rothschild, the company's president. Lissauer's wife, Meta, was also Walter Rothschild's sister. Hugo Neu started his own scrap metal company in 1945. The company is now run by his son, John, and has very close business ties to the state of Israel and is invested in a Mossad-linked Israeli venture fund.

volunteer at an Amsterdam firm doing business between Holland and the Dutch East

Indies (now Indonesia), I landed a job at M Lissauer & Co, in Cologne, Germany. This

firm, founded in 1905 by Meno Lissauer and his brother, was a major worldwide trader in

metals, minerals and chemical products. The attraction for me was that the firm had a

offices throughout Europe as well as in New York. The latter was called Associated

Metals & Minerals Corp founded in 1924. The shares of Associated Metals were in the

name of Walter Rothschild, Meno Lissauer's brother in law, who was an American

citizen At M Lissauer & Co, Cologne I worked in the ore department for 2 years, until I

was granted the U.S. Immigration Visa. Within a week after arriving in New York in April

1937 I was hired at Associated Metals & Minerals Corp. The Lissauer group had a major

long term contract for the purchase of zinc concentrates with Howe Sound Corporation,

American company, operating a large zinc-lead mine and a lead smelter in the state of

Zacatecas in northern Mexico. It also had several purchase contracts for zinc ores and

concentrates with small Mexican owned mines The concentrates were shipped to zinc

smelters located in Belgium, France and Poland.

My initial travels to Mexico were in relation to the logistics of moving these

concentrates by rail to the port of Tampico and to negotiate for the purchase of

additional quantities of minerals and concentrates from Mexican mines.

Hugo Neu was a Jewish immigrant from Cologne who headed Associated Metals and Minerals Corp. (AMMC) in New York with two other German Jewish immigrants, Dr. Meno Lissauer and his brother-in-law, Walter M. Rothschild."

Dr. Meno Lissaaer, Industrialist, Dead; Board Chairman of Associated Metals

Dr. Meno Lissauer, chairman of the Associated Metals and Minerals Corporation, 75 West Street. died yesterday at his home at 4503 Fieldston Road, Riverdale, the Bronx, after a brief illness. His- age was 78.

Dr.Lissauer, who was born in Luebeck, Germany, was the chief factor in developing the company from a small beginning' in 1903 [hard to read, could be 1908?] in Cologne, Germany. to its present international scope. He founded the concern with $300 borrowed from a friend. In 1907 he brought his brother, the late Henry Lissauer. into the- company and named it M. Lissauer & Cie. After World War I, the company helped to distribute Germany’s stockpile of metallic ores and scrap.

Dr. Lissauer organized the West German Metal Dealers Association and was its president for thirteen years. He was also a delegate to the General Association of Commerce and Industry of Germany. For his assistance to the Aachen Technical College in its experiments in extracting metals from residues and wastes he received an honorary doctorate.

When the Nazis came into power in the Nineteen Thirties they put the financial pinch on the company. In 1937 Dr. Lissauer moved to the Netherlands. A f t e r t h e conquest of t h a t country by Germany he,fled to Lisbon and finally reached- this country. Associated Metals and Minerals already existed here, as did some affiliates elsewhere.From them grew the present iternational organization.

In this country Dr. Lissauer was active in philanthropy, as he had been abroad. He was honorary chairman of the metals and mining division of the United Jewish Appeal and a director of the American Federation of Jews in Central Europe.vLast year he established at Brandeis University the Meno Lissauer Scholarship Endowment Fund.

Surviving are his widow, Meta: a son, Franz A. of New York; a daughter; Mrs. Hannah Hirschfeld of Scarsdale. N. Y.; a brother, Jonny of Zurich, Switzerland; and four grandchildren.
