A groundbreaking investigation of how the Nazis helped German tycoons make billions off the horrors of the Third Reich and World War II??and how America allowed them to get away with it.

In 1946, Günther Quandt??patriarch of Germany's most iconic industrial empire, a dynasty that today controls BMW??was arrested for suspected Nazi collaboration. Quandt claimed that he had been forced to join the party by his archrival, propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, and the courts acquitted him. But Quandt lied. And his heirs, and those of other Nazi billionaires, have only grown wealthier in the generations since, while their reckoning with this dark past remains incomplete at best. Many of them continue to control swaths of the world economy, owning iconic brands whose products blanket the globe. The brutal legacy of the dynasties that dominated Daimler-Benz, cofounded Allianz, and still control Porsche, Volkswagen, and BMW has remained hidden in plain sight??until now.

In this landmark work of investigative journalism, David de Jong reveals the true story of how Germany's wealthiest business dynasties amassed untold money and power by abetting the atrocities of the Third Reich. Using a wealth of untapped sources, de Jong shows how these tycoons seized Jewish businesses, procured slave laborers, and ramped up weapons production to equip Hitler's army as Europe burned around them. Most shocking of all, de Jong exposes how America's political expediency enabled these billionaires to get away with their crimes, covering up a bloodstain that defiles the German and global economy to this day.

Mir war ein Großteil der hier genannten Vorwürfe an der Oberfläche bekannt. Hier aber reicht das Erkennen tiefer, wir begegnen deutschen Industriegrößen in ihrem Bemühen, sich mit Hitler und den damit einhergehenden Möglichkeiten mehr Macht und Geld zu sichern, auf eine Weise, die einen erschrecken lässt.

Goebbels und seine Familie stehen zu Beginn im Mittelpunkt und eine Frau, Johanna Maria Magdalena Behrend, die zunächst mit Günther Quandt verheiratet war, steigt mit der Verbindung zum Propagandachef der Nazis zur entscheidenen Frau in Nazideutschland auf.

Man liest bzw. hört gespannt zu und am Ende steht ein Brief. Magda Goebbels schreibt an ihren Sohn Harald Quandt, in dem sie ihm erklärt, warum sie ohne Nazi-Deutschland nicht mehr leben will. Dabei nahm sie und ihr Mann auch die minderjährigen Kinder in den Freitod.

Dieser Brief an ihren Sohn Harald verdeutlicht die Kraft einer Überlegenheits-Ideologie und ihre Zersetzung des Menschlichen. Man ist alleine davon schockiert und kann nachempfinden, wie breit und fest der Nationalsozialismus vernetzt war.

Wichtig auch heute ist, Menschen bzw. Agglomerationen nicht zu viel Macht zu geben, soziale Marktwirtschaft muss sich auf eine Einhegung dieser fatalen Wirkungen konzentrieren, sie unmöglich machen, eine zentrale Lehre aus diesem Buch. ( )
