    I don't see the relevance of the second link....

    There are quite a lot of companies born out of Nazi germany. BASF (Makes kiddies dolls etc) was a chemical company in germany who were a prime user of jewish slave labour.

    Not really suprised to be honest, although there is a website that someone here posted countering this claim.

    Snopes. If you look at snopes it lists this as false but the claim on snopes is that Nazis invented Fanta.

    The truth is that Fanta was invented by the Coca-Cola company during Nazi reign in Germany part due to trade embargos placed upon Germany meaning that they couldn't get the ingerients for coke.

    Thanks :)

    @ CBS: Does Snopes also try and disprove the whole IBM and the Nazi thing as well?

    True, Skoda made tanks, Mercedes Benz made cars (ie Hitler's), and Lidl sold cheap crap. Nobody really cares tbh.

    +Don't BASF make CDs and tapes etc?

    Ahhhh, my fave holiday beverage (other than beer).
    Always wondered why I felt slightly fascist while abroad.
