Henry Ford (*July 30, 1863 Greenfield Township (Michigan/USA)/† April 7th, 1947 in Dearborn, (Michigan/USA)) founded the automaker Ford Motor Company. He consistently perfected the assembly line technique in the automotive industry, which, however, already Ransom Eli Olds had anticipated in 1902 in a simplified form in his Oldsmobile car company. His concept of modern manufacturing of vehicles not only revolutionized industrial production, but also had a strong influence on modern culture (Fordism). In addition to this pioneering work for the automotive industry as a temporary publicist Ford is anti-Semitic journals such as The International Jew, who had a great visibility, politically controversial to this day.
