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!
OK, it’s Polish historians, not any one Polish company who are making these claims. The Nazi’s killed more Poles than Jews—so there is no love lost between these countries...
Still, my point remains—70 years ago is ancient history in any corporate history.
I sincerely doubt that Schaeffer’s success as a car parts company has anything at all to do with it’s Nazi past. (Whether they should get gov. money from Germany is another issue!)
Winning post. I agree.
