Jewish History -- Famous Jewish Businessmen -- Julius Fromm

All hail Julius (Israel) Fromm. This German-Jewish businessman came from the shtetl to revolutionize the world of ... well, sex.

Now that I have your attention, check out this item about Julius Fromm, the man who gave the world the latex condom.

In fact, "Fromm's Act was the first branded condom to be sold.

Alas, the Nazis forced him to sell out at loss, but at least Mr. Fromm was able to leave the country and escape the Holocaust in exile in London. His story ends tragically, in that he died of a heart atack only 4 days after the Germans surrendered in 1945. His son was able to restart the company after the war, but he had to pay a cousin Goering 175,000 marks for the right to use the Fromm name. But now, one can still buy Fromms condoms, for a mere 1.95 euros over the Web.

Here's a link to their web site (German only)

A good idea for a series. The Wikipedia link is much funnier, however, if inadvertently.

LOL. I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, "Condoms are easier to change than diapers."
