DEARBORN -- Ford Motor Co. disputes accusations it profited from slave and forced labor used at its Cologne, Germany, plant under the Nazi regime. About 2,000 people were forced to work at the plant between 1933 and 1945. But Ford says an internal study shows it did not profit from the activity. Ford says it will donate $4 million to a fund to study slave labor and a U.S. Chamber of Commerce fund for slave and forced laborers.
