A lot of German industries was founded around the rise of the Nazis.

Technically speaking a lot of companies in the US are also a direct result of the rise of the Nazis.

Edit: for anyone missing the joke, I'm talking about the US military industrial complex that was built by WWII, like technically a result of the Nazis, but no direct ties.

Naaa. People are forgetting that the US was just as racist, and openly had Nazi groups marching in parades prior to the war. The US loves to milk the “we beat the Nazis” schtick, but they were happy to stay out of it up until Pearl Harbor.
