The German family that owns a company controlling Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Panera Bread and Keurig Dr. Pepper will donate $11 million to charity after learning that its ancestors supported Adolf Hitler and used forced laborers under the Nazis.

Albert Reimann Sr. and son Albert Reimann Jr., donated to Hitler's SS and used Russian civilians and French prisoners of war as forced laborers, according to a report in German newspaper the Bild.

Reimann family spokesman Peter Harf, the chairman and managing partner of the family's JAB Holding Co., said the Bild's report was accurate and had been confirmed by additional research commissioned by the Reimann children and grandchildren.

“It is all correct,” he commented to the Bild. “Reimann senior and Reimann junior were guilty."
