  • New PDF release: Dr. Oetker und der Nationalsozialismus: Geschichte eines

    By Jürgen Finger,Sven Keller,Andreas Wirsching

Jahrhunderts dominierte es die Nische der again- und Puddingpulverindustrie, expandierte aber schon in den 1920er Jahren nach Europa und in andere Branchen. Erstmals hat das Unternehmen nun einer Forschergruppe Zugang zu seinem Archiv gewährt, um seine Geschichte während des «Dritten Reiches» aufzuarbeiten.

    Dr. Oetker pflegte enge Beziehungen zur NS-Bewegung, zur Wehrmacht und zur SS. Das Unternehmen wurde zu einem der ersten «nationalsozialistischen Musterbetriebe». An der Spitze stand Richard Kaselowsky, der Mitglied des «Freundeskreises Reichsführer-SS» warfare. Rudolf-August Oetker wurde zum Wirtschafts- und Verwaltungsführer der Waffen-SS ausgebildet, ehe er die Nachfolge an der Firmenspitze antrat. Schon vor dem Krieg profitierte das Lebensmittelunternehmen vom «Rüstungsboom», und Oetker- Produkte fanden den Weg in die Feld- und Großküchen. Im Krieg galten sie an der «Heimatfront» als wichtiger Beitrag zur Versorgung der Zivilbevölkerung. Angesichts des allgegenwärtigen Mangels boten Pudding und Kuchen nach sparsamen Kriegsrezepten eine willkommene Abwechslung. Oetker erhielt deshalb Zugriff auf knapper werdende Rohstoffe und konnte so die eigene Marke durch den Krieg retten. Das Unternehmen profitierte zudem von der «Arisierung» jüdischen Besitzes, Zwangsarbeit gab es in der Lebensmittelfabrikation dagegen kaum.
