During the Holocaust, the most respected German corporations used slave labor, including BMW, Daimler-Benz (Mercedes-Benz), Messerschmitt, and Krupp. Though they were not forced to use slaves, they nevertheless used them as “good business practice.” Additionally, I.G. Farben, a German chemical industry conglomerate, invested more than 700 million Reich marks (German dollars) to build a huge petrochemical plant at Auschwitz III, which was staffed by human slaves.

Johnny Cash spent a year of hard time behind bars at Folsom Prison.

Johnny did a few "overnights" at some local jails for rowdy behavior, he never did hard
time at Folsom or any other prison. His concerts there and at San Quentin are well
known, though.
Incidentally, Country Icon Merle Haggard was in the audience for one of these
concerts..... he was doing time for car theft.

Johnny is a member of both the Rock and Roll and the Country music Halls of Fame.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
