Top: Jewish World Conspiracies: The Great Volkswagen Rip Off/Swindle
EMBUED with rage, hatred, anti-Christian exploitation, and FINANCIAL CHUTZPAH, Jewish attorneys are suing Volkswagen Motor Company in Germany. Their pro-Jewish objective is to take money from Christians and give it to Jews. The Jewish case exists because Christian Volkswagen was forced to use conscripted foreigners to supply the labor needs of the German Army's tank building objectives at the Volkswagen plants, because all nationals were committed to a war in which Germany, Italy, and Japan were fighting against more than 100 nations and colonies in the world at large. Most of these persons were Christians and only a few of these persons were Jews. As these attorneys must be aware, suing Volkswagen for using Jews is tantamont to suing Schindler for the Jews he conscripted for his war plant in the Spielberg film, Schindler's List, thus saving them from a worse fate. Now, more than 50 years later, Jews are trying to extort money from Volkswagen which, like Schindler, was merely a reluctant player in World War Two, an innocent Christian company caught in a national war situation and doing its best to survive and follow the law of its parent nation while doing the least possible harm. A large portion of any money gained from suing these Christian stockholders will go to Jewish lawyers. Few Jewish and Christian persons involved in this situation survive, and besides, the Jewish lawyers are only concerned for Jews and not for the 80%-95% of conscripted labor that was Christian nor for the 99% of all conscriped troops in World War Two who were Christians and not Jews. This speaks miles about the anti-Christian falsehood of the so-called Jewish commitment to "pluralism" in which all nationalities will be treated equally, except Christians. As usual, Jews are only interested in being economic parasites in the midst of Christianity by extorting money from Christians and giving it to Jews. The 15%-20% all conscripted labor at Volkswagen is not represented by Jewish Attorneys in this case, and all money they might collect will go to Jewish Attorneys first and Non-Attorney Jews second with nothing at all for Christians who performed most of the work. Jewish fairness to Christians, which has never existed, is again lost in this Volkswagen Rip Off.
BONN, Sept 11, 1998 (Reuters)- Virtually every German company used slave labour during World War Two, but few firms ever paid compensation for their unpaid wages because of legal loopholes and Europe's Cold War divide.
Germany's biggest car maker Volkswagen AG announced on Friday it was establishing a 20-million-mark ($11.87 million) relief fund ending a more than 50-year battle by former slaves.
The company says it has already provided 25 million marks since 1988 for humanitarian projects in the home countries of former slaves. Hoping to make a clean break with the past, Volkswagen said the fund would be its final gesture.
"That is a good start and a fine sum of money," said Klaus von Muenchhausen, who represents about 150 Jewish Holocaust survivors in Israel, who were forced to work for the car maker.
Historians say VW bought some 7,000 slaves from Hitler's SS elite force between 1941 and 1945. Their work included building mines, V1 rockets and anti-tank launchers.
"Volkswagen had no permanent workforce and relied on foreign labour," said the revered German historian Hans Mommsen, who wrote a study of Volkswagen's use of slave labour that was published in 1996.
"As many as three quarters of its staff were foreigners, most slave labourers," he said, adding that VW's slaves were brought from 13 countries, including the Soviet Union, Poland, France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Only a handful were death camp Jews, who survived by using their expertise as engineers and skilled workers.
Mommsen said workers from western Europe, such as students from occupied Netherlands and French prisoners of war, were treated best. Slavs, who were regarded as racially inferior and only seen fit to serve their German "masters", were treated worse.
As part of the Nazis' drive to create an "Aryan" master race, Jews were regarded as unfit to live and earmarked for death by the Nazi policy of "Extermination through Work".
Overworked, underfed, with scant time off and penned in cramped wooden barracks, many workers died under the appalling conditions.
"They worked 14 hours a day, they were deprived of food rations if they did not fulfil targets," Mommsen said.
Historians say Nazi slaves were beaten, subjected to ritual humiliation and in some cases summary execution for minor offences. Poles were forced to wear a sign marked "P" pinned to their chests, according to a VW slaves' lobby group.
Volkswagen was founded in 1938 to build the "Volkswagen" or People's Car, inspired by Henry Ford's revolutionary assembly line production techniques in the United States of which Adolf Hitler was a great admirer.
War broke out a year later and only about 55,000 models of the trademark "Beetle" models had been produced by the end of the war, as nearly the entire company had switched to arms production for Hitler's war.
To fill the arms industry's insatiable demand for workers, an army of foreign slaves-- some 12 million people-- were rounded up and deported from across Nazi-occupied lands that stretched from Norway to North Africa to Nazi Germany.
VW slaves had lobbied for years for compensation and held protests outside the headquarters in Wolfsburg-- which the Nazis originally named "Stadt des Wagens der Kraft durch Freude" meaning "Town of the Car of Strength through Joy".
