Not much of a war machine if they could not produce enough wool to make army blankets. And is there something special about socks for U-Boats crews?
“filthy bosch” has a whole new meaning, no?
The article isn’t specific, but how did the Zyklon B get into or on the hair? If heads were shorn upon arrival, wouldn’t the collected hair be somewhere else when the prisoners were gassed? I’m guessing the trace amounts are surface traces, as opposed to within the hair itself.
I just finished Saul Friedlander’s second volume of his amazing (and amazingly sad) Nazi Germany and the Jews books, entitled The Years of Extermination. Highly recommended. I thought I basically knew everything there was to know about the Holocaust but the more I read the more horrors there are to uncover. It’s funny what sticks in your head. I didn’t know that German Jews were forbidden to own pets under a law promulgated in (I think) 1942. This means they had to get rid of the pets they already owned. But, since the law also forbade them to give their pets to others they were forced to have them killed. A small thing perhaps in the grand scheme of things but another piece of evidence that the Germans didn’t merely want to kill Jews, they also wanted to maximize their suffering.
How about not bailing out any failing companies, no matter what their management might have done in the 1940s?
Let’s say the horrific charge is true. Unless some of the same people are still working for the company, I fail to see how this is relevant to the company’s current travails.
Allegations - nothing more.
BTW, those lampshades didn’t exist either.
Ummm, let me see now, why are the decisions and actions from nearly 70 years ago—as dreadful as the were—of men who are now long dead, of any relevance at all to the current day company?
Sounds like a way for a Polish company to stick it to a German competitor.
It’s like a Maine based company “revealing” that an Atlanta based company—or its ancestor firm—used slave labor 150 years ago. Horrors!
