Hugo Boss apology for Nazi past as book is published
The German fashion firm Hugo Boss has apologised for its maltreatment of forced workers during World War II when it supplied the Nazis with uniforms.
“It is clear that Hugo F Boss did not only join the party because it led to contracts for uniform production, but also because he was a follower of National Socialism,” wrote the author, Roman Koester, an economic historian at the Bundeswehr (English: German army) University in Munich.
Mr Koester notes that Boss tried to improve conditions in 1944, a year before the war ended, by asking to house his workers himself, and attempting to improve their food situation.
“We can only repeat that the behaviour towards the forced labourers was at times harsh and involved coercion, but that concern for their welfare was also displayed, rendering simplistic characterisations impossible,” he writes.
The company said on its website it wished to “express its profound regret to those who suffered harm or hardship at the factory run by Hugo Ferdinand Boss under National Socialist rule”.
After the war Boss was tried and fined for his involvement in Nazi structures.
Boss Orange has revealed a campaign featuring its brand ambassadors Sienna Miller and Orlando Bloom, to promote a charity their support of Unicef to aid the development of schools in Madagascar.
Bruno Maes, Unicef Madagascar resident representative, said: “At Unicef, we believe that a good start in life is the basis for securing the rights of children.”
“Very often children are not given that chance – only 7% of children aged three to seven years old in Madagascar attend preschool and half of six-year-olds cannot correctly say their name or age, meaning they are not prepared for primary schooling.”
“This support from Boss Orange will improve the chances of approximately 60,000 children to access early childhood education, and equip them for life.”

“Even the forever-young members of the Fantastischen 4, also known as Fanta 4, are getting older. All four are now pushing 40, and Stern magazine describes them as the “fathers” of German hip-hop. Maybe that’s why their new album “Fornika”, which is swiftly scaling Germany’s charts, is dedicated to growing older and growing wiser – without necessarily growing more respectable. Maybe that’s why they’ve donned BOSS Black tuxedos in their hit video, “Ernten Was Wir SÃ¤en” [“Reaping What We Sow”].”
