Filmmaker Oliver Stone is working with famed New York-based agency Rubenstein to manage the fallout following anti-Semitic remarks he made to the Sunday Times of London.

Said stone, who was promoting his documentary “South of the Border,” which is about South American politics:

Hitler was a Frankenstein, but there was also a Dr. Frankenstein…German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support. Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people.

The remarks led to the following apology statement.


A Statement from Oliver Stone:

“In trying to make a broader historical point about the range of atrocities the Germans committed against many people, I made a clumsy association about the Holocaust, for which I am sorry and I regret. Jews obviously do not control media or any other industry. The fact that the Holocaust is still a very important, vivid and current matter today is, in fact, a great credit to the very hard work of a broad coalition of people committed to the remembrance of this atrocity – and it was an atrocity.”
