Entrust, a U.S.-based IT corporation owned by Nazi Joseph Goebbels’ step-grandchildren, is expected to earn about £840,000 from the UK Government to help manufacture digital COVID-19 certificates via the National Health Service (NHS) app, according to documents released on Wednesday, July 28.
The contract is expected to be extended until mid-2023, with pricing for a two-year deal already formally established though it is scheduled to end in July of next year.
In a separate Government deal earlier this year, Entrust received £250,000 for its UK vaccine passport program project.
Entrust Inc. was repurchased for $500 million in cash in 2013 by Data Card Corp, which is 97% owned by the children of Harald Quandt, who was the stepson of Nazi Joseph Goebbels.
Harald was a biological child of the “German Industrialist” Günther Quandt and his second wife Magda Ritschel. Ritschel later divorced Günther in 1929 and remarried to Goebbels who served as Adolf Hitler’s Propaganda Minister.
BMW automobiles and Altana (chemicals), a spin-off of the VARTA manufacturing company Günther Quandt owned just after World War I was among his legacies.
Günther and several family members provided clothes for German soldiers during World War I, and this is where a large portion of his start-up funding came from.
He later bought Accumulatorenfabrik (AFA) AG, a battery factory that later became VARTA, a potash mining company, many metal-working enterprises, and significant holdings in BMW and Daimler-Benz.
In 1933, shortly after Hitler’s ascension to power, Günther became a member of the Nazi Party.
