The German chief executive also acknowledged his company’s “special responsibility in connection with the Third Reich.”
Volkswagen was founded in 1937, as part of Adolf Hitler’s vision to enable German families to own their first car. On May 26, 1938, Nazi dignitaries gathered near Fallersleben in northern Germany to lay the foundation stone for the Volkswagen Works. Adolf Hitler was present, predicting that this Volkswagen, initially known as the Kraft-durch-Freude-Wagen, or KdF-Wagen, would be “a symbol of the National Socialist people’s community.”
During World War II, the Wolfsburg-based firm manufactured vehicles for the German army, using more than 15,000 slave laborers from nearby concentration camps.
One VW plant engineer traveled to Auschwitz and personally selected 300 skilled metalworkers from the massive transports of Hungarian Jews in 1944. In addition, 650 Jewish women were transferred to assemble military munitions. The official relationship between the Nazi concentration camps and Volkswagen was cemented when the Fallersleben facility officially became a subcamp of the Neuengamme concentration camp.
Although popularized by the Nazis, “Arbeit Macht Frei” was coined by the 19th century linguist, ethnologist, and author, Lorenz Diefenbach.
The inscription appeared at the Dachau concentration camp, set up by Heinrich Himmler in 1933 to use dissidents as slave labor, and later became part of the Nazis’ deception for the real use of the concentration and death camps. The most infamous camp gate that contained the slogan was at Auschwitz in Poland.

¿Cómo se enteró el mundo que existían los campos de concentración?
¿Cómo se enteró el mundo que existían los campos de concentración?
Al final de la guerra, la liberación de los primeros campos de concentración tuvo poca repercusión, pero las imágenes que los Aliados descubren allí, en un primer momento censuradas, sirvieron para tomar conciencia al mundo del horror del Holocausto.La liberación de estos campos de exterminio tuvo lugar en medio del avance hacia Berlín de los ejércitos soviético, estadounidenses y…

In an interview Buba gave in 2017 for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, she told of her other encounter with the infamous doctor. “We had to go to — I don’t know whether it was an office or a hospital — where Dr. Mengele worked. Cruel, like you have no idea. They lay us down, and I don’t have any idea what happened. It’s possible they put us to sleep. … What he got up to, I can’t say.”
Buba painted this, too, choosing, as she would say, “cold colors.” For all of its scale, the special evil of Auschwitz ultimately lay in the fact that the murder and torture was clinical, something I only really understood after seeing Buba’s painting. Notice the animals in the scene: They wear white coats.
*
Nine days before the Red Army liberated Auschwitz, Buba and her sister were among the 56,000 prisoners forced to march 35 miles in the dead of winter. As many as 15,000 of those who began the journey from Auschwitz died. The rest, along with Buba and Icu, were put on trains to Germany.
Even with the war all but lost, the Nazi determination to kill Jews didn’t stop.
“The SS had us form a single file,” Buba said of the march. “They eliminated one out of every 10 women. I ran toward Icu so that the same fate would befall us.”
It didn’t. She and Icu were liberated, from Bergen-Belsen, on April 15 by the British Army. No painting of Buba’s haunts me more than the one of her alone, her head in her emaciated arms, the barbed wire still in front, the chimney, still burning, not far behind.

For a group of 40 seamstresses imprisoned at Auschwitz, the ability to create high-end fashion meant the difference between life and death.
Amid the horror of the Holocaust, starting in 1943, a select group of hand-picked women were segregated from their peers and set up in a workshop to create haute couture for the wives of Nazi camp officers. Their fame spread and wives from as far away as Berlin soon found themselves on a six-month waiting list for the Auschwitz seamstresses’ garments.
On February 14, Berta Berkovich Kohút — the “sewing circle’s” last survivor — died of COVID-related complications. She would have been 100 years old later this year, according to her eldest son, Tom Areton.
“She was the last living person from among these dressmakers,” Areton told The Times of Israel. “She was in Auschwitz for 1,000 days and she always said she could have died 1,000 times each of those days.”
The story of “Betka” Kohút and the unique workshop will be told in an upcoming book, “The Dressmakers of Auschwitz,” written by Lucy Adlington. Described as “the true story of the women who sewed to survive,” the book includes content from the author’s three-day interview with Kohút in 2019.

Escaping the train to Auschwitz
Escaping the train to Auschwitz
On 19 April 1943, a train carrying 1,631 Jews set off from a Nazi detention camp in Belgium for the gas chambers of Auschwitz. But resistance fighters stopped the train. One boy who jumped to freedom that night retains vivid memories, 70 years later. In February 1943, 11-year-old Simon Gronowski was sitting down for breakfast with his mother and sister in their Brussels hiding place when two…

The last night in the Kanada kommando in Auschwitz, January 18, 1945
Batsheva Dagan, from Łódź, writes of her experiences that night (excerpt)
Attention, comes the order — burn all the suitcases! burn every name, every trace! erase what happened here! Prague, Bratislava,
Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Ostrava, cities and towns addresses, addresses, first and last names burn them! check that nothing remains, no witness to the people whose voices fell silent here.
However, the sudden evacuation order interrupts the work, and the women are forced into columns and leave the camp in a death march, before riding in open train cars to Ravensbrück.
Form ranks! The end is near! Stop burning the suitcases now! In the distance, rifle shots, the dull thud of cannon. Echoes of the anticipated soothing noise — like the singing of the soul, a song of consolation... the effacing of the evidence did not succeed.
At the end of the poem, she formulates an appeal to the future:
Yet today, years later, the mute witnesses remain — suitcases and chests with names and addresses — not all of them. Those that remain are preserved in a museum in glass display cases. A warning to the future. A shout that could not be stifled.
