Certainly one of Germany’s richest households is to present hundreds of thousands of euros to charity after studying about ancestors who enthusiastically supported the Nazis and used compelled labour.
Bild newspaper claimed that paperwork revealed Albert Reimann Sr and Albert Reimann Jr used Russian civilians and French prisoners of battle as compelled labourers throughout World Struggle Two.
Household spokesman Peter Harf, who heads the Reimann’s JAB Holding Firm, stated an inside investigation confirmed the newspaper’s findings.
He stated the household by no means spoke of the Nazi period, however the proof exhibits the daddy and son, who died in 1954 and 1984, “belonged in jail”.
Mr Harf stated the heirs plan to publish the analysis and donate €10m (£eight.5 million) to charity.
JAB has controlling stakes in Pret a Manger, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and different companies.
