The Sun newspaper published an article horrifically confirming, following a DNA test, that a lampshade bought at a New Orleans car boot sale is made from human skin. A gruesome relic from Nazi crimes against humanity in the 2nd World War. As the main financier of the Nazis, does Royal Dutch Shell bear any moral (or legal) responsibility for the crimes of Hitler and his equally evil henchmen?

Yesterday, after 70 years, Norway apologized for the deportation of 773 Jews from Nazi occupied Norway during World War 2. The majority were shipped to concentration camps and only 34 survived. See news report below.
Royal Dutch Shell has much more to apologize for about its Nazi past.
Shell and its Nazi leader Sir Henri Deterding, conspired directly with Hitler, financed Nazi Germany, was anti-Semitic and sold out its own Dutch Jewish employees to the Nazis.
In March 2011, the chief corporate lawyer at Royal Dutch Shell threatened us with legal proceedings in relationship to this sensitive subject. We are still waiting for Shell to take any action.
The world is still waiting for an apology from Shell.

Norway apologizes to Jews
AFP January 28, 2012 3:14 AM
Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg on Friday apologized for Norway’s deportations of Jews during the Second World War
“Without relieving the Nazis of their responsibility, it is time for us to acknowledge that Norwegian policemen and other Norwegians took part in the arrest and deportation of Jews,” Stoltenberg said.
“Today, I feel it is fitting for me to express our deepest apologies that this could happen on Norwegian soil,” the prime minister added, standing on the exact spot where 532 Jews boarded the cargo ship Donau to be taken to the concentration camps.
After Nazi troops invaded Norway on April 9, 1940, it was ruled by a collaborationist government headed by Vidkun Quisling, whose name has since been synonymous with “traitor.”
About 772 Jews were deported from Nazi-occupied Norway during the war. Only 34 of them survived.
“The murders were unquestionably carried out by the Nazis,” Stoltenberg said, “but it was Norwegians who carried out the arrests, it was Norwegians who drove the trucks … and it happened in Norway.”
“No one, no individual, no minority, should have to live in fear in this country.”
