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?

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)

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?

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?

I'll be going there in a few weeks. If I see anything I'll snap a few pics.

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