This is my second tread on this artical. I know for a fact that the artical will disapear, so if you are so inclided please copy and paste this to a document form and save it. I do not have very much to say about the death of this fellow, but I understand that he was apart of the banking system. And owned 25 percent.
Taken from the artical:
He held a 25 percent stake in the Rothschild banking empire and oversaw the conversion of the former Paris-Lyon-Marseille railway into a travel company of hotels and restaurants.
So, not only did he have a winery he also was involved with the banking empire.
Rothschild is survived by a son, Nathaniel, a financier; daughters Elizabeth and Nelly; and five grandchildren. Funeral arrangements remained incomplete late Monday.
He is survived by his son. Will then this fellow take over for his father?.

Hi,

Thanks for the link/article. Please fix the URL in your first post.

Cheers

From the article :



Born May 29, 1917, Elie de Rothschild was captured by the Germans near the border with Belgium. He wound up at Luebeck, one of the Nazis' most infamous POW camps.

There, he was reunited with a brother, Alain, and although they were Jews, they were treated as captured officers and avoided execution.


That right there says _a lot_ about their power. Not even the Nazis would execute them !
