Choco Leibniz Heiress defends company’s extortionate WWII gas bill

Choco Leibniz — there was a particularly high labour turnover at the Bergen-Bahlsen biscuit factory……

The heiress of the company that makes Choco Leibniz biscuits has defended the company’s extortionate World War Two gas bill The W1nners’ Club can reveal.

Twenty Five year old Verena Bahlsen of the Bahlsen biscuit empire caused outrage after telling the German newspaper Bild that her company had treated its second world war forced labourers “well,” and that the firm “was guilty of nothing,” apart from perhaps choosing really boring colours for the free striped pyjamas they were given upon commencement of their employment contracts.

Bahlsen’s Head of Human Resources, Mrs. Emma Ployer said, “admittedly the company managed to rack up a fairly expensive gas bill between the years 1939 and 1945, but this must be because there was a war on at the time and lots of biscuits needed producing for the troops who were fighting on the front. You can tell that lots of biscuits were made during this period because according to the company archives, the ovens were in use almost all the time and as many staff as possible were encouraged to take a shower at once — presumably because they’d put so much effort into their work duties throughout the day?”

The heiress of the German biscuit empire has apologized for defending the company’s use of forced labourers during World War II, but says that everyone that worked at the factory must have been pretty safe from the fighting because of the barbed wire, gun turrets and mine field that surrounded the outer perimeter to keep the bad people out that wanted to steal the company’s biscuits.

Ms. Bahlsen has said in a statement that she intends to “learn more about the history of the company whose name I carry,” and stresses that she finds the fact that new employees were brought to the factory every day in cattle trucks particularly interesting because these days very few employers provide free transport for staff that have only been recruited on a temporary contract.

“Bahlsen apologises profusely for the extortionate gas bill it ran up during World War Two as a result of producing Choco Leibniz biscuits, but as we used to say to new employees who joined the company back then: ‘Arbeit Mach Frei,’ which means, ‘work sets you free’ — although surprisingly, very few people who joined the company during that period were ever seen again after their three month probation had ended,” Mrs. Ployer added.
