Did a Bahlsen heiress really say family firm's use of Nazi slave labor no big deal?

Bahlsen is a major German firm that makes cookies, etc

Students used to buy their cookies for over-night train trips. Maybe they still do

snip--"According to Bahlsen’s own company records, between 200 and 250 slave labourers from Eastern Europe were brought to work in the Bahlsen factory in Hanover between 1942 and 1945.

While they were not worked to death, as Jewish slave labourers and other concentration camp prisoners were, they endured harsh conditions.

“So-called ‘eastern workers’ and Poles were given less food, poorer medical care and were at the mercy of police law,” said Prof Manfred Grieger of Göttingen University. “They were forced to live behind barbed wire.”


Not so neo Nazis & a capitalist🤔
