    As someone from Germany I can confirm this, all the cool kids back then wore Hugo Boss. @ze germans on this board: Did anyone read Endstufe, by chance?
    Please find the never boring google translation of the FAZ book review below:
    "...an operetta singer and Modenärrin with "strength through joy" steamers touring and the Teutonic "turn of the doublet" fascinated." Now you know. Cheers N

    Did'nt even know Hugo Boss was actually a person. I thought it was a collection of designers
    making clothes. Learning new things every day.

    BMW, IBM and Prescott Bush (George Bush's grandfather) also had Nazi ties.

    As did Joe Kennedy (which is why he lost his spot as US Ambassador) and the Pope.

    I hear the Pope is a Catholic on top of being a former Nazi. I mean, one thing at a time, please!

    Can anyone name a major German company trading today (that has been in continuous existence for 80 years) that did not help the Nazi war effort?
    That would be comment worthy.
