The award-winning bestseller by Edwin Black, IBM and the Holocaust, documents how IBM consciously co-planned and co-organized all six phases of the Holocaust: identification, exclusion, confiscation, ghettoization, deportation, and extermination. The newly Expanded Edition, which offers 32 pages of photographic and document evidence, says the 12-year alliance was micromanaged by IBM president Thomas J. Watson from New York headquarters through overseas subsidiaries in Germany, Poland, Holland, and elsewhere in Europe. Learn more at www.ibmandtheholocaust.com.
“EXPLOSIVE AND STUNNING. An explosive book... Backed by exhaustive research, Black’s case is simple and stunning: that IBM facilitated the identification and roundup of millions of Jews during the 12 years of the Third Reich ... Black’s evidence may be the most damning to appear yet against a purported corporate accomplice.”
