(This is based on this closed question. Rather than ask about the whole thesis I'm picking one specific claim which should be answerable.)

The book "Indisputable Evidence Proving The EU Was Created By Nazis" by Jack King tries to show that the EU was actually planned and created by Nazis as a way to ensure German domination of Europe. One claim in particular caught my eye:

1944: A secret conference was held in Berlin entitled "How Germany will dominate the peace when it loses the war". Rich and powerful Germans moved huge amounts of money out of Germany and sent it to America until after the Nuremberg Trials had been completed. The money was needed to pay to fight for a German dominated Europe. Nazis agreed that their backup plan for European domination would take years to reach fruition if the war was lost but believed that their economic and political tactics would prove successful.

Is there any evidence that such a meeting took place? If so, when, where and who? What plan emerged from this meeting?

    During the war, all sides had meetings with plans for how to carve up and govern Europe in various possible outcomes. European unity (with Soviets, without Soviets) was certainly discussed by the Allies as well, and strongly promoted by the UK after the war – hence Churchill being listed among the EU's "Founding Fathers". Read about some of the wartime conferences and post-war discussions to get context. Dec 31 '19 at 14:56

    Does this tome of "Indisputable evidence" offer any actual factual evidence to back up this extraordinary set of claims, does it just spin a narrative for its target audience to take for granted? Because this sounds like a grandiose pile of hogwash combining multiple mutually contradictory conspiracy theories.

    @LukeSawczak Well, yeah. Some of those concepts had actually already been discussed before WW2, because after "The Great War" people felt that maybe warfare had become a little too costly for everyone involved, and a stronger forum for people to work out their differences before things escalated into warfare was a good idea...

    @Shadur Indeed — cf. League of Nations, designed to promote world peace and disintegrated when it failed to prevent WW2. Dec 31 '19 at 16:25

    The question title talks about the EU, as in: the European Union. But the quote and question talk about a continent where everything will be controlled by Germany. These are not the same. Can you clarify how a continent controlled by Germany relates to the democratic political union between European nations?
