Description & Show Notes

David de Jong is a guest on Everyday Germany to discuss his book, Nazi Billionaires.

Nazi Billionaires is a book that looks at how German tycoons made billions off the horrors of the Third Reich and World War II, and at how the families who have inherited that wealth have dealt with acknowledging the crimes of their patriarchs. It tells the story of five German dynasties - Quand, Flick, von Finck, Porsche-Piëch, and Oetcker - by looking at how they came into contact with the Nazi party, how they profited off weapons production, cheap labor, and Aryanization during the Third Reich, and at how they were able to escape the fall of the Third Reich with much of their wealth intact.

The book's author, David de Jong, joins Nina and Shaun to discuss the book.
