BMW's Quandt family finally admits Nazi ties
 
Crazy that it was covered up for so long but they have finally addressed the issue... reparations coming?

How about reparations from VW or Porsche.

I'm in Germany this week and this isn't even on the English news. Skynews is covering the MJ trial 24/7. Shame on the family for trying to cover it up for so long.

FWIW, I've only seen 3-4 'classic' Bimmers since I got here on Sunday. (E30 era or earlier)

^ that's because TUV takes care of most of the junk on the road.

BMW_7 09-28-2011 08:45 PM

Now I wonder if TUV has ties to the nazis

Crazy how is 2nd wife (Magda Ritschel-Goebbels) married Joseph Goebbels with Hitler witnessing the marriage.

Hugo Boss was a Nazi too.

COOL.

You know what other company helped the Nazi's??

IBM

At least BMW and Hugo boss were GERMAN to begin with. Do you really blame any german company for being involved to some degree with the Nazi party?

Robb 09-28-2011 09:35 PM

Ya, it's safe to say that any wealthy German company back in the 1930's and 1940's were linked to the Nazi's.

The family has been actively researching this for years both from a family and company perspective.

When I was in Munich last year they were researching and preparing a section at the BMW museum about this chapter in the company's history. Anyone been to the museum recently? Did they get that section up?

1000% agree with that. I like his comparison to America. After all, Bush was elected pretty much the same way.
