Moment in Time > June 20, 1942 > Three Polish prisoners and one man from what is now Ukraine did what so many others could not: escape from Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration camp. When car mechanic Eugeniusz Bendera told his friend Kazimierz Piechowski that he was on the list to be murdered, they hatched a plan to escape. Bendera could get access to a car and Piechowski worked in the block where guards’ uniforms and ammunition were kept. On this day in 1942, together with Stanislaw Gustaw Jaster and Jozef Lempart, they picked up a garbage cart and started walking toward the infamous Arbeit macht frei gate. Unsuspecting guards let them through and they headed straight for the stashed Nazi uniforms. Bendera stole a Steyr 220, the fastest car and one reserved for the sole use of the commandant. They piled in and drove to the main gate. But the gate didn’t open and the guards didn’t move. That is, until Piechowski started shouting orders at the SS guards, who quickly obliged. The four drove out of the camp and to safety. They were some of the 144 escapees from the largest Nazi death camp, where some 1.1 million people died or were murdered. - Iain Boekhoff

UK Business > Chanel Surpasses $11 Billion in Sales >  It’s been a year of tremendous upheaval for Chanel. The passing of long-time brand steward Karl Lagerfeld in February 2019 followed speculation that the Wertheimer family, which controls the business, might be preparing for some sort of exit. This latest round of sale rumours was set off by the release of its financial results for the first time last year and the centralisation of its corporate functions in London. // While Chanel, one of the only independent luxury brands still in operation today, has long been admired and obsessed over by analysts and investors alike, its double-digit growth in recent years indicates that the ceiling for sales within a single luxury brand might be quite higher than what was once imagined. (By the end of 2018, Chanel employed over 25,000 people globally, nearly doubling its head count over the past decade.) // Philippe Blondiaux, Chanel’s global chief financial officer, reiterated in an interview with BoF today that the company is not on the market. / “Chanel is not for sale, Chanel is not preparing for an IPO, I just want to reconfirm that for the hundredth time this year . . .” - BOF

Canada > Urbanism > Toronto - Charter starter > Ontario premier Doug Ford isn’t shy when it comes to wielding his influence over Toronto: he has slashed city council almost in half, embarked on a takeover of its subway and redrawn transit plans. So it’s no wonder many Torontonians feel that the province exerts too much power over the future of Canada’s largest city. Empower Toronto, a panel discussion taking place this evening, offers a platform to explore the idea of the provincial capital becoming a “charter city” in the vein of New York. The move would allow Toronto to determine its own land-use, revenue collection, elections and local governance structure. While charter cities are more common in the US, it appears that Torontonians are keen. Initially the meeting was due to take place in a church basement; it’s changed venues many times since to cope with skyrocketing demand for seats at the table. // Note: Toronto's Population Data (Urban Area) 2016 > 6,417,516 > growth rate 1.14% RM // Ontario’s population reached 14,374,084 on April 1, 2018, with an increase of 55,334 people during the first quarter of 2018. This compares to an increase of 39,508 in the same quarter of the previous year. RM

Japan > Business > Brought to heel > Japanese women are kicking back against misogyny in the workplace. A 19,000-signature petition opposing stringent dress codes, which insist that women wear high heels to work, was presented to officials at the labour ministry this week. Actress and writer Yumi Ishikawa’s #KuToo movement is a play on the Japanese words for pain (kutsuu) and shoe (kutsu). As well as citing an array of health concerns attributed to wearing high heels on a daily basis, the movement speaks to a broader concern about working culture in Japan. While some companies are guilty of marginalising female employees, encouraging more women into work is a cornerstone of prime minister Shinzo Abe’s plans for the economy; his government should get in step. - Monocle / CBC RM / Kyodo RM

Coffee > Price of coffee plunges to 13-year low — but maybe not at your local coffee shop > The price of a pound of arabica coffee has dipped below $1 US this year on the world's biggest commodities exchange in New York. That's about half of what it was as recently as 2016. / The reasons are complex, but broadly they boil down to what is happening in Brazil, the world's largest producer of coffee beans. Brazil's coffee farmers produced almost 70 million bags of coffee last year — nearly 40 per cent of the world's supply. / Brazil has dominated the world market for more than a century, but in recent years the country has been cranking out even more beans than usual, as the world's demand for coffee shows no sign of slowing. Every second of every day, some 35,000 cups of coffee are consumed around the world, according to the UN. Naturally, other countries aren't content to simply let Brazil fill all of that demand. / Normally supply imbalances are temporary as the market adjusts. But 2018 was the second year in a row of major global overproduction of coffee, which is pushing down wholesale prices to their lowest level in years. The main arabica futures contract price hadn't dipped below $1 since 2006. RM

China > Tiananmen Square's haunted silence, 30 years later > China’s democratic dream was snuffed out as night fell on June 3, 1989. In mid-April, thousands of idealistic university students had gathered in the heart of Beijing to mourn the passing of an admired Communist Party official who had championed liberalizing reforms. In the weeks that followed, their vigil turned into a much larger protest for greater political freedoms. Students erected a statue of foam and papier-mâché dubbed the “Goddess of Democracy” not far from the giant portrait of Chairman Mao Zedong that hangs in the square. At their peak, the sit-ins and protests drew perhaps over a million people. // But they also drew the ire and terror of a Communist Party cabal in power that feared its grip slipping. Tanks rolled in. Dissenters were gunned down. By the end of June 4, the protests had been violently dispersed, the square was cleared, the statue destroyed. No one knows how many were killed by Chinese security forces, but estimates range from the hundreds to the thousands. - Ishaan Tharoor.

Helsinki, Finland > 3rd World Circular Economy Forum - Today will see business leaders, policymakers and experts from around the world gather in Helsinki for a three-day celebration. No, not of music, art or even food but of the so-called circular economy which is not just about recycling but about improving the efficiency of the entire manufacturing process and, in turn, eliminating waste. The concept has become increasingly fashionable but is it more a buzzword than a reality? / It seems so. A 2018 survey by ING, a bank, of 300 executives found that 62 per cent of US companies plan to move towards circularity but it also concluded that they struggle to understand its true value and implement it effectively. Not only is this shift essential from an environmental point of view, however, it’s also a huge business opportunity. Look at Heineken’s brewery in Mexico: it uses waste heat from a nearby factory for energy and sells by-products such as sludge and spent grains to farms. Here’s hoping the Helsinki delegates have some more smart ideas for pushing things forward. -  Venetia Rainey, Monocle.
