How dare you say that about the history of Richmond Hill. This is where my family and history is. Ford was a GREAT man and he gave alot to everyone. He is Richmond Hill. He loved everyone. Shame on you.

Sorry to say he did not love Jews. As a matter of fact he hated the Jews and received recognition from Hitler himself. It is a historical fact.

Ford and Adolf Hitler admired each other's achievements.[30] Adolf Hitler kept a life-size portrait of Ford next to his desk.[30] "I regard Henry Ford as my inspiration," Hitler told a Detroit News reporter two years before becoming the Chancellor of Germany in 1933.[30] In July 1938, four months after the German annexation of Austria, Ford was awarded the Grand Cross of the German Eagle, the highest medal awarded by Nazi Germany to foreigners.[30]

Ford disliked the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and did not approve of U.S. involvement in the war.

On 1 February 1924 Ford received a representative of Hitler, Kurt Ludecke, at his home. Ludecke was introduced to Ford by Siegfried Wagner (son of the famous composer Richard Wagner) and Siegfried's wife Winifred Wagner, both Nazi sympathizers and anti-Semites

but this is probably the most damning.....

Hitler, fascinated with automobiles, hung Ford's picture on his wall; Ford is the only American mentioned in Mein Kampf.
