Michael Moore – The Awful Truth – BMW Slave Labor

BMW refuses to compensate slave laborers that were forced to work for their company under the Nazi regime.

In this episode, Sal Piro, The Awful Truth’s bill collector, confronts BMW over the issue of slave labor used during World War II. Disgusted by the company’s refusal to pay damages or even speak to a former laborer, Piro smashes a window out of a BMW. Throughout the program, Moore points out that Germans enjoy six weeks of vacation each year. To emphasize this, he sets up a display of vacationing Germans in Times Square.
