Overview

The Degussa corporation played a pivotal role in the processing of plundered precious metals in Nazi-occupied Europe and controlled the production and distribution of Zyklon B, the infamous pesticide used to gas the inmates of Auschwitz and Majdanek concentration camps, during the Third Reich. Peter Hayes traces the extent of the corporation's involvement in these and other Nazi war crimes, including the Aryanization of Jewish-owned property and the exploitation of forced labor, and delineates the motivations for such conduct.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Like his critical study of IG Farben, Hayesas new work on the German corporation Degussa stands at the intersection of business and political history. Hayes raises many important questions, still valid today, about business partnerships. Recommended." CHOICE May 2005

"...the most mature study of a single German firm under National Socialism currently available, and its conclusions regarding the relationships between business and the Nazi government more generally are likely to stand the test of time." Business History Review, Jeffrey Lewis, Ohio State University

"a meticulously documented book" The International History Review Feldafing

"this fine book is a long overdue contribution to our knowledge of how National Socialism affected specific sectors of German society...Hayes has done a mangificent job in explaining the complexity of Degussa'a situation, and if we cannot look on its plight with much sympathy, we can at least do it with understanding." - Decian O'Reilly, Michigan State University
