The German subsidiary of Ford Motor Co. collaborated more extensively with Nazi Germany than previously thought, according to The Nation. Citing documents in the U.S. National Archives, the news magazine reported that Ford profited from making military trucks for Hitler’s army and that its cooperation with the Third Reich continued eight months after the United States entered World War II. Ford executives responded in a statement that the company’s Michigan headquarters “lost all contact with and control over the plant during the war years.”
