Overview

Crime and Punishment of IG Far by Joseph Borkin

During the International Crime Tribunals that followed the collapse of the Third Reich, a group of industrialists from I.G. Farben, Germany's great chemical combine, sat in the dock alongside the leaders of Nazi Germany. How these businessmen came to be tried for the most heinous of war crimes—including slavery and mass murder—is the subject of this harrowing expos�.

Outlining the sinister bargain between I.G.'s executives and Adolf Hitler, Joseph Borkin describes how the company followed in the wake of the Blitzkrieg, strip-mining Europe of its chemical resources to feed the Nazi military machine. Finally, the author recounts how I.G. built the largest oil-and-rubber-producing complex in the world at Auschwitz and fueled it with the slave labor of inmates destined for the gas chambers. Documenting an execrable chapter in history, here is an important case study in the lethal abuse of power in pursuit of wealth. Black and white photos. 250pp. HC
