second to last Krupp episode, and terminally online types ought to love it, because it's exploring postwar Germans framing themselves as a nation oppressed by international imperialism and working with Third World nations to do business, lol

Vera Hossenfeldt, the con artist who got Alfried to marry her, lol

Konrad Adenauer, chancellor of West Germany

on their honeymoon, Alfried and Vera Krupp went to the Savoy and then flew to Nassau

who'd they meet in Nassau on their honeymoon? Axel Wenner-Gren, of course

for meetings. about, you know, things.

the first head of state to visit the Krupps was the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Elect of God

some people know about the Elizabeth Taylor diamond, but not everyone knows that it was formerly the Krupp diamond, which Alfried bought for Vera

Alfried was in Egypt meeting with Otto Skorzeny, who had been on Krupp Steel's payroll. whoops.

Harald Krupp, who was captured and sent to a gulag for his crimes lmao

it's fun, check it out
