My dad has started preaching from this self published book (Indisputable Evidence Proving the EU Was Created by Nazis, by Jack King) which claims the European Union was both wanted and created by Nazis. It claims anyone can verify these facts and to deny this is impossible. Since it struck me as an extreme position, I have looked into it. From my own research:
Walter Funk, Nazi economist, did want something akin to the EU.
Hallstein was a lieutenant in the German army, then a POW (does this make him a Nazi?) but it appears he was not a Nazi supporter and opposed them.
Schuman literally was arrested for protesting the Nazis.
Can you provide some high quality sources on this matter? My current stance is that the Nazis might have wanted the EU, but it is slander to claim they created it. (As my Dad keeps saying with glee, along with "It's been proven".)
