IBM and the Holocaust
The Strategic Alliance between Nazi Germany and America's Most Powerful Corporation—Expanded Edition
The award-winning, New York Times bestselling shocker—with more than a million copies in print, in 20 languages in 200 editions in 190 countries—detailing IBM's conscious co-planning and co-organizing of the Holocaust for the Nazis, all micromanaged by its president Thomas J Watson directly from New York and later via Paris and other cities. This Expanded Edition offers 37 pages of previously unpublished documents, pictures, internal company correspondence, and other archival materials to produce an even more explosive volume.
First published to extraordinary praise in 2001, this provocative, award-winning international bestseller has stood the test of time as it chronicles the story of IBM's strategic alliance with Nazi Germany. The Washington Post said the book was “Beyond dispute.” Newsweek called the volume “explosive and stunning.” CNN heralded it as “chilling.” IBM and the Holocaust provides nothing less than a groundbreaking investigation into corporate complicity in genocide. Edwin Black's monumental research exposes how IBM and its subsidiaries helped create enabling and expediting technologies for the Nazis, step-by-step, from the identification and cataloging programs of the 1930s to the selections and exterminations of the 1940s.
