Re: [Rollei] What did you do in the war? (long)

Both Voigtl\änder and Franke & Heidecek were rather opposed to both the
Nazi Party and to centrlaziation efforts of Speer.  Both attempted the
taking of slave labor, though I believe that F&H was finally forced to take
some:  Voigtländer, to my knowledge, never had a one.

There was no active Nazi support among ANY German camera concern, though
some (Leica, F&H) were more able to resist than   were others (KW, Zeiss
Ikon).  The Nobel concern (KW) came the closest to bieng a fellow-traveller.
