So I was thinking about The movie, “Miracle At Saint Anna”, and remembered the German deserter that they were trying to kill. So in this posting of people who have contributed to society I take my hat off to the German Deserters of World War 2. I say that because the madness that purveyed the country at the time was out of control. People killing people. Taking valuables, accusations, after accusations. Some of these soliders must have thought to themselves what in the hell is going on here. This isn’t what I signed up for. In the face of you traitor they had a fundamental understanding of human nature and what needed to be done. Now if someone signed up saw bullets and then said oh no this isn’t for me that different. But if he or she said and these people are being gassed and burned because of what? And made there exit strategy then I say Thank You to these men and women as they saved the lives of others. While taking a stand for the human race. You can read more about some of things these men have went thru by clicking on the link.
Allainz was started by Carl Von Thieme and Wilhelm von Finck in 1890 on February 5th. The company mostly covered German merchants in the ocean and on land. The company later expanded to insure merchants worldwide and in other countries. During the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and subsequent fire the company sustained heavy losses but kept on trucking……and now you have it a multi-national insurance brand.

Volkswagen was started by the German Labour Front in 1937. In Germany most people drove motorcycles because they couldn’t afford a car. Several different car designers came up with ideas and concepts for small affordable family cars. Hitler realized the private sector couldn’t make a car for families on the strict costs that he thought was reasonable for a vehicle. So Hitler had the car produced or manufactured by a state owned facility using designs from Ferdinand Porsche…..and the rest is history…..Another thing Volkswagen is the second largest car maker in the world…….click the link. One more point during its start Volkswagen’s workforce comprised of 80 slave labor from Concentration Camps. Volkswagen in 1998 said up a restitution fund.
So Budweiser started off making a light ale when everyone else and consumers preferred dark ales, then when the great depression came they were allowed to sell beer again but consumers had very little quantities of money. What if they would have quit when what they were brewing was different from what was in the marketplace? The History of Budweiser…….Click the link.
