Most Post-WWII German Justice Officials Were Former Nazis: Study

 

by Breitbart Jerusalem10 Oct 2016
 
BERLIN (AFP) – Germany’s post-World War II justice ministry was infested with ex-Nazis hell-bent on protecting their former comrades, according to a new official study released Monday.
 
Fully 77 percent of senior ministry officials in 1957 were former members of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi party, a higher proportion even than during the 1933-45 Third Reich, the study found.
 
“We didn’t expect the figure to be this high,” said study co-author Christoph Safferling, who evaluated former ministry personnel files, speaking to the daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung.
 
The fascist old-boys network closed ranks, enabling its members to shield each other from justice, the study found — helping explain why so few Nazi war criminals ever went to prison.
 
“The Nazi-era lawyers went on to cover up old injustice rather than to uncover it and thereby created new injustice,” said Heiko Maas, Germany’s justice minister, who presented the report Monday.

During World War II, IG Farben used slave labor in factories that it built adjacent to German concentration camps, notably Auschwitz,[27] and the sub-camps of the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp.[28]IG Farben purchased prisoners for human experimentation of a sleep-inducing drug and later reported that all test subjects died.[29][30] IG Farben held a large investment in Degesch which produced Zyclon B used to gas and kill prisoners during the Holocaust.[31]
 
After World War II, the Allies broke up IG Farben and Bayer reappeared as an individual business “inheriting” many of IG Farben’s assets.[29]Fritz ter Meer, an IG Farben board member from 1926 to 1945 who directed operations at the IG Farben plant at Auschwitz, was sentenced to seven years in prison during the IG Farben Military Tribunal at Nuremberg. He was elected Bayer’s supervisory board head in 1956.[32]

Aspirin
Bayer’s first major product was acetylsalicylic acid (originally discovered by French chemist Charles Frederic Gerhardt in 1853), a modification of salicylic acid or salicin, a folk remedy found in the bark of the willow plant.[7][8] By 1899, Bayer’s trademark Aspirin was registered worldwide for Bayer’s brand of acetylsalicylic acid, but “Aspirin” lost its trademark status in the United States, France, and the United Kingdom because of the confiscation of Bayer’s US assets and trademarks during World War I by the United States and the subsequent widespread usage of the word to describe all brands of the compound.[9] It is now widely used in the US, UK, and France for all brands of the drug. However, it is still a registered trademark of Bayer in more than 80 other countries, including Canada, Mexico, Germany, and Switzerland. As of 2011, approximately 40 thousand tons of aspirin are produced each year and 10 to 20 billion tablets are taken in the U.S. alone each year for prevention of cardiovascular events.[10] It is on the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system.

Heart disease and aspirin therapy
American Medical Association News
 
Aspirin is one of the oldest, best-selling and most familiar drugs around.
 
About one in five American adults regularly take aspirin, according to the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Many are heart attack and stroke survivors who take an aspirin a day to lower the chance of having a repeat heart attack or clot-related stroke — a strategy called secondary prevention. For this group, the evidence is clear that daily low-dose aspirin can be beneficial. But for another group of aspirin-takers, the evidence is less compelling.They are people hoping to prevent a first heart attack or a first stroke, and who use aspirin as a method of primary prevention. But recent studies suggest the benefits do not always outweigh the risks of daily aspirin use, which can include bleeding and other side effects.
