Technology Holocuast Style

By Christopher Holmes

During the Nuremberg Trials, I.G. Farben, one of the largest chemical conglomerates of the world at that time, was charged with crimes against peace, the plundering of occupied territories, partnership with a criminal group, the SS, and the extensive use of slave labor. It is also well known that a subsidiery of I.G. Farben produced the deadly Zyklon B Gas that was utilized in the Gas Chambers at Auschwitz, and that I.G. Farben constructed and operated a factory and lab at Auschwitz, which had the name Buna. Although I.G. Farben was not found guilty of producing Zyklon B Gas with the intent that it be used to commit genocide, due to the fact that the management was told it was being used for the treatment of delousing, the question as to the exact recognition of the I.G. Farben officials with regard to the deadly gas is still an open question. While it is still unclear to what exact extent I.G. Farben actually participated in the Genocide of the Jews, we do know that I.G. Farben conducted experiments utilizing human beings as subjects: Drugs against Typhus, sleeping pills, and nerve poisonous gas were all administered under the aegis of I.G. Farben
