  1. Audi Comes Clean About Nazi-Era Horrors

    The German auto giant has revealed involvement in Nazi-era atrocities. A study commissioned by Audi concluded that the management of its forerunner company, Auto Union, bore “moral responsibility” for using the slave labor of more than 3,700 concentration camp prisoners, while thousands of other non-inmates were forced to work in inhumane conditions in other plants. Chairman at the time, Richard Bruhn, known as the “Father of the Auto Union,” was a Nazi Party member. Concerned by the findings, Audi is considering changing Bruhn’s online profile and removing his name from some initiatives.
