German film, Verdict on Auschwitz/
Auschwitz Trials, a complete outrage:
Defendants denied committing any crimes, or even knowing what Auschwitz was for.
Robert Jan van Pelt (born August 15, 1955 in Haarlem, Netherlands) is an author, architectural historian, professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario and a Holocaust scholar. One of the world’s leading experts on Auschwitz, he regularly speaks on Holocaust related topics, through which he has come to address Holocaust denial. He successfully helped defend Deborah Lipstadt in the civil libel suit brought against her by David Irving.
The U.S. lead prosecutor in the Nuremberg War Criminal Tribunal against the IG Farben anticipated this development when he said, “These IG Farben criminals, not the lunatic Nazi fanatics, are the main war criminals. If the guilt of these criminals is not brought to light and if they are not punished, they will represent a much greater threat to the future peace of the world than Hitler if he were still alive.”
The scientific value of all these experiments, whether ordered by the IG Farben or not, was in fact zero. The test persons were in bad physical condition, caused by forced labor, insufficient and wrong nutrition and diseases in the concentration camp. In addition to this there were generally bad sanitary circumstances in the laboratories. “The test results in the concentration camps, as the IG laboratory specialists should have known, could not be compared to results made under normal circumstances”.
IG Farben. Includes a list of major Nazi war criminals.
Ter Meer, 3 years

Carl Wurster, chairman of the board of BASF until 1974 was, during the war, on the board of the company manufacturing Zyklon-B gas d 1974
After 1945, Carl Wurster remained plant manager with the approval of the occupying powers, until he was arrested in 1947 and charged in the I.G. Farben Trial in Nuremberg. Acquitted in 1948, he resumed the position of chairman of the managing board in 1952 and was the driving force behind the reestablishment of BASF, an honorary professor at the University of Heidelberg, and the holder of honorary doctorates and the title of honorary senator at several other German universities. In 1955, he was awarded the Great Cross of Merit with Star of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Bavarian Order of Merit. He retired in 1965, but continued to be active as a member and chairman of supervisory boards at numerous other German industrial concerns (such as Robert Bosch, Degussa, and Allianz).
Carl Winnacker, chairman of the board of Hoechst until the late 70’s, was a member of the Sturm Abteilung (SA) and was a member of the board of IG Farben. (?)
Curt Hansen, chairman of the board of Bayer until the late 70’s, was co-organizer of the conquest of Europe in the department of “acquisition of raw materials.” Under this leadership the IG Farben daughters, BASF, Bayer, and Hoechst, continued to support politicians representing their interests. (?_)
Otto Ambros, d. 1990
higher ups at A.Birkenau. Ambros was one of the inventors of Sarin gas. 3 years.
” Between 1941 and 1944, he visited the I.G. Auschwitz construction site a total of 18 times. Ambros was an active advocate of the use of concentration camp prisoners at the construction site”.
Nazi chemist Otto Ambros was a Director of I.G. Farben,
the company that had a major role producing the extermination gas used at Auschwitz.
At the Nürnberg trials, Ambros was convicted of slavery and mass murder.
Eight years was a surprisingly lenient sentence for the death of hundreds of thousands of Jews, yet it was commuted to only 3 years. Then, with the help of US Military Intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency,
he was hired as a consultant by the US Army Chemical Corps,
by Dow Chemical Company, and by WR Grace Chair, J. Peter Grace.
Ambros was not the only murderer brought to this country
by US Military Intelligence and the Central Intelligence Agency.
Dr Otto Bickenbach, d 1971**
Experimented with poison gases.
(1901 -1971) was a virologist and professor of biology at the University of Strasbourg, who conducted experiments on humans in the concentration camp Struthof during the Second World War.
He conducted experiments with phosgene gas (for which he had yet found an antidote before the war) of 15 common criminals and gypsies in the gas chamber Struthof, who died in agony.
Testimony of a survivor quoted Steegmann:
“After 10 minutes I heard a thud – as if struck hands – were the lungs of two inmates who walked around “and foaming at their mouths , as well as their ears and noses. ”
Natzweiler , the Waffen SS left behind a rare document in which, contrary to the coded terminology generally employed by the Nazis, specific mention was made of “the construction of a gas chamber at Struthof.”

Otmar von Verschuer
The founders of The Mankind Quarterly included some of the most renowned scholars of their time in the field of anthropology and related disciplines. In the course of its 45-year existence its editorial board has included the following distinguished scholars:
Mankind Quarterly, Founding scholars:
Genetics: David C. Rife (New Delhi), J.D.J. Hofmeyr (Pretoria); O. von Verschuer (Muenster) ***
Verschuer was Mengele’s mentor in racial hygiene. This is the quarterly mentioned in the Atlantic magazine post, below. So the scientist Matare who is quoted favors these ideas.
Lately, though, Mataré’s scientific attention has wandered from physics to eugenics. He has written two books on the subject and become a frequent contributor to a pseudo-scientific journal called Mankind Quarterly. Among its founders was a Nazi doctor who conducted experimental genetic research on cadavers he obtained from Auschwitz. (Verschuer)
Hans Deichmann was there. A lawyer who represented IG Farben (constructors of Auschwitz) in its contract with Italian construction. He witnessed the murders and determined to become a ‘traitor’ .
**They admit there was a death camp at Auschwitz Birkenau -Monowitz.
Bosch and Duisberg were probably not guilty of war crimes, as they died before A.Birkenau were developed fully.

When the Germans to ship end of the war against the entire male population of Rome to the German Reich for the defense industry wanted, Hans Deichmann managed to prevent this project.
Freya von Moltke
His sister, also a Resister to Hitlerism. He died, 2004; she died, 2010 1 January.
Both were witnesses to the Holocaust.
The use of slave labour for major German firms including Krupp, Siemens and I.G. Farben.
In the Auschwitz files correspondence was discovered between the camp commander and Bayer. It dealt with the sale of 150 female prisoners for experimental purposes and involved haggling over the price. One exchange notes: “The experiments
were performed. All test persons died. We will contact you shortly about a new shipment at the same price.
“These companies, not the lunatic Nazi fanatics, are the main war criminals. If the guilt of these criminals is not brought to daylight and if they are not punished, they will pose a much greater threat to the future peace of the world than Hitler if he were still alive.” http://www.gmwatch.eu/latest-listing/1-news-items/12829-remember-bayer-on-holocaust-memorial-day
The Nazis stripped the corpses of everything useful. One gruesome exhibit – 7 tons of human hair – shows traces of poison gas, proving that the prisoners’ heads were shaved AFTER they had been gassed. http://www.johndclare.net/Nazi_Germany3_Auschwitz.htm
joedresch.wordpress.com/2011/05/07/holocaust-survivor-speaks-on-being-a-teen-in-auschwitz-birkeneau/ It should be mandatory reading for young people who can have no idea of what another generation went through
However Bild recently gleaned some key information from just a few of the 4,000 pages of the BND’s secret Eichmann file which tells another story. It shows that West German intelligence already knew in 1952 that Eichmann was in Argentina, where he was living with his wife and children under his own name.
Adenauer’s close adviser, Hans Globke, helped strip Jews of their rights under the Nazis was a widely publicized scandal, but it only distracted from the larger shame that countless lesser-known Nazis lived and worked under the radar throughout West German society, including in the ranks of the BND.
“In 1942, carried on by full knowledge and witness of the practices of mass murder at Auschwitz, “Topf and Sons” applied for a patent for a “continuous-operation corpse incineration oven for mass use.”
On the Topf site, they admit that “[Karl] Schulze and [Gustav Braun] returned in 1955.” Returned I presume to Erfurt, East Germany, where their former employer, Topf, was located? There were also two other guilty parties technical draughtsman Keller and a Herr Grosch. Kurt Pruefer and Fritz Sander both died in the Gulag.
German designers of the ovens acknowledge their crimes

Although Ernst-Wolfgang Topf last in the design and construction of technically undemanding Abfallvernichtungsöfen specialized, his company went bankrupt in 1963. On 23 February 1979 Ernst-Wolfgang Topf died at the age of 74 years in Brilon.
