say it ain't so

From a 2000 article in TIME Europe:

Haribo, makers of the jelly bear candy sold around the world, was named in the German parliament as having used forced labor, a charge it denies. It says of the fund that "under the cover of alleged solidarity the thesis of collective guilt is being brought up again. There is no doubt about the suffering that existed but that cannot be righted now."
Kind of upsetting, but as long as they're not building ovens building ovens at Buchenwald and 50 years later attempting to market a vacuum cleaner called the "Zyklon" my intense desire for Tangfastics shall remain.
