Description

Published to extraordinary praise, this provocative international bestseller details the story of IBM's strategic alliance with Nazi Germany. IBM and the Holocaust provides a chilling investigation into corporate complicity, and the atrocities witnessed raise startling questions that throw IBM's wartime ethics into serious doubt. Edwin Black's monumental research exposes how IBM and its subsidiaries helped create enablling technologies for the Nazis, step-by-step, from the identification and cataloging programs of the 1930s to the selections of the 1940s.

Our customer reviews

Edwin Black loves writing about the Nazi-era. This book; IBM and the Holocaust gives the reader lots of information about IBM and the atrocities that the managers were committing to all people of the world. Secret meetings with leaders from nearly every country were an almost daily occurrence from the management of IBM. Edwin shows you the story of IBM in the Nazi era, how IBM did transactions with America *and* Germany, and lets the reader decide on what the outcome should have been. A great read, good for both techs and non-techs alike. A moving story that will strike you to the core and make you realise that companies will do anything to make a dollar. Even if it means supplying both sides of a war with the technology needed to kill.show more
