S.S. General Hans Kammler, an engineer that supervised the construction of concentration camps, was responsible for using slave labor into the rocket program. He was instrumental in the arrest of von Braun which has been working in the design of the V-2 rocket. Claren G. Lasby in his 1971 book “Paper Clip”, wrote: “In March 1944 the Gestapo learned that von Braun had expressed in public a defeatist attitude about Germany's chances in the war, and a desire to design a spaceship rather than a weapon. Voracious in their demand for control of the V-2 program, the S.S. leaders used this information, together with a trumped-up charge that von Braun had Communist leanings, to imprison him for two weeks.” The intervention of Major-General Dr Walter Robert Dornberger, leader of the V-2 rocker program and other projects at Peenemünde, was instrumental in obtaining von Braun's release, since without him the final design of the V-2 rocket will be in jeopardy. This allowed Kammler to take control of the secret weapon program.

They stole all the food from occupied Ukraine and shipped it back to Germany via train. Countless starved as a result. Many of them were children. When children as young as 6 would go to their barracks and beg for food, the German soldiers would give them bags of human feces and laugh at them. They blocked all possibilities to leave the cities and find food as well.
Man if this isn't the biggest backfire of a rightwing OP, I don't know what is.
