Meyer was a cousin of the industrialist Wilhelm Keppler and became a
member of the Freundeskreis der Wirtschaft, a group of industrialists
committed to racialism and close to far right politics, led by
Keppler. He was also an SS fuck.
During the latter stages of the Second World War Meyer was involved in
Ostindustrie GmbH, a forced labour enterprise attached to the SS Main
Economic and Administrative Office set up by Oswald Pohl in the
General Government area of Poland in 1943.
Using slave labor was wrong, and he knew it was wrong, but he hadn't
counted on the fierce dedication of Jews to bring Nazis to justice,
May 9, 1945 is the day he killed himself rather than face justice.
