German Auto Manufacturers

Cameron Labrecque

The German auto manufacturers BMW, Audi, Mercedes Benz, and VW used forced labor to manufacture their vehicles throughout WWII. BMW "employed" 50,000 Jewish slaves during the war.

The Flossenb├╝rg concentration camp housed all the slaves that worked in the Audi manufacturing plants.
