History Happy Hour Encore Episode 138 – Nazi Billionaires: Dynasties of the Third Reich
Guest: David de Jong
Sunday, March 26, 2023
This Week on History Happy Hour: The story of German tycoons who made billions off the horrors of the Third Reich and World War II – and were never brought to justice because of political expediency. Many of the dynasties they started continue to control swaths of the world economy today, owning iconic brands such as Porsche, Volkswagen, and BMW.
In an encore episode, Chris and Rick welcome Dutch journalist David de Jong, author of Nazi Billionaires: The Dark History of Germany’s Wealthiest Dynasties. A deep dive investigation into family fortunes made off of slave labor, seized Jewish businesses, and other atrocities.
Sunday at 4 PM ET on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
