In February 1945, a gas chamber was constructed at Ravensbrück and, by April 1945, between 2,200 and 2,300 were killed in the gas chamber. The majority of those killed by gas in the camp were Hungarian, mostly Jewish, then Polish, then Russian. Women prisoners working as scribes counted a total number of 3,660 names on lists for “Mittwerda;” the Nazi code name for the gas chamber. However, since some of the transports went directly from the satellite camps to the gas chamber, the number of women murdered in the camp’s gas chamber is estimated to be 5,000 to 6,000.
Friedrich Flick (1883–1972) was the founder of the dynasty, establishing a major industrial conglomerate during the Weimar Republic, and who was one of the world’s wealthiest people by the time of his death in 1972. He left his empire to his son Friedrich Karl Flick (1927–2006).While originally a member of the liberal German People’s Party, Flick also supported the Nazi Party financially from 1933, and over the next ten years donated over seven million marks to the party.
During the Second World War Flick’s industrial enterprises used 48,000 forced labourers from Germany’s concentration camps. It is estimated that 80 per cent of these workers died as a result of the way they were treated during the war. Flick was found guilty of war crimes at Nuremberg in 1947 and was sentenced to seven years in prison, but was pardoned shortly after and resumed control over his industrial conglomerate, becoming the richest person in West Germany.
Flick: While world war tens of thousands of forced laborers, mainly from Eastern Europe and slave workers from concentration camps were employed in the numerous establishments of flicks (including Ignatz Bubis). Estimates of over 10,000 victims, who were tortured in these years with malnutrition and brutal treatment to death. The conditions here were very bad and very brutal treatment. (read more, Wikipedia, Flick).
Now a policy existed for freeing German women common-law criminals and asocial elements in order to employ them as workers in the German factories. It is therefore impossible to imagine that the whole of Germany was unaware of the existence of the concentration camps and of what was going on there, since these women had been released from the camps and it is difficult to believe that they never mentioned them. Besides, in the factories where the former internees were employed, the Vorarbeiterinnen (the forewomen) were German civilians in contact with the internees and able to speak to them. The forewomen from Auschwitz, who subsequently came to Siemens at Ravensbruck as Aufseherinnen, had been former workers at Siemens in Berlin. They* met forewomen they had known in Berlin, and, in our presence, they told them what they had seen at Auschwitz. It is therefore incredible that this was not known in Germany.
Bernhard Plettner (* 2. Dezember 1914 in Oberlahnstein; † 2. November 1997 in Erlangen) war ein deutscher Ingenieur, Manager und Unternehmer. Studies to interrupt and a semester to work as a working student at the Siemens-Schuckertwerke (SSW) in Berlin and Mülheim/Ruhr. The engineer returned after graduation in 1940 in the SSW industry to Berlin. Here first of all he was responsible as a project engineer for the design and distribution of industrial and energy-supply systems in the country and abroad.
Wilhelm Biedenkopf (Born 9 June 1900 in Chemnitz; d. 2000?) was a German entrepreneur and Engineer, Buna works.Biedenkopf was technical director of the Buna-Werke [near to Auschwitz] in the time of National Socialism. At the end of the 1960s he was a member of the Board of Dynamit Nobel AG in Troisdorf and Advisory Board member of the Dyna plastic-Werk GmbH in Bergisch Gladbach.
The steadily growing death rate was caused by overwork and deteriorating living conditions. In the fall of 1944 a gas chamber was constructed (until then prisoners had been sent for gassing to other camps), and it is likely that the first female prisoners were murdered there in January 1945.
With the approach of the Soviet army, evacuation of Ravensbrueck was ordered by Himmler and 15,000 women were sent on a forced death march. Up to this time, 132,000 women and children had passed through the camp, of whom 92,000 died or were murdered in the camp. When the Red Army reached the camp on April 30, 1945, they found 3,000 gravely ill and dying prisoners there.
Those of a political nature include attempts by women working in the nearby Siemens factory to sabotage its manufacture of rocket components, to steal newspapers, or to keep lists of prisoners.
In January of 1951, during the Korean War, those businessmen still in prison were released through a declaration of clemency by the U.S. High Commissioner for Germany, John J. McCloy, and almost all of their assets were returned to them.
While some writers produced pamphlets and publications condemning the “return to power” of capitalist criminals, companies hired journalists and historians in Germany and the U.S. to write sympathetic corporate histories and to exonerate the companies from accusations that they were involved in the Nazis’ criminal activities. Much of the work produced by these writers was, frankly, a whitewash. These histories usually blamed Nazi leaders and the SS for drawing industry “unwillingly” into reprehensible conduct. Clearly, big business was not owning up to its compromised past.
Ironically, a series of depositions, trials, and appeals drew attention to the conduct of Siemens during the Nazi years
Delius has been vindicated in some ways. Contemporary scholars are continuing to learn about the extent to which Siemens, and every major German business in the Thirties and Forties, was implicated in the brutality of Nazi economic policies, most egregiously through the abuse of forced and slave laborers.
Lotte Toberentz, born Maria Charlotte Toberentz (May 27, 1900 – January 1964) was the head overseer of the Uckermark concentration camp for girls in its early years. From December 1944 to April 1945 she was Lagerführerin (camp leader) of the Ravensbrück concentration camp.
Erwin Franz Rudolf Roestel (4 May 1902 — 24 November 1974) was a Obersturmbannführer (Lieutenant Colonel) in the Waffen-SS during World War II. SS Brigadesfuehrer
wikipedia: The 2 SS Infantry Brigade was raised on 15 May 1941 and was placed under the command of Army Group North for the invasion of the Soviet Union. Prior to this, the role that the unit would undertake during the assault was discussed in a meeting between Henning von Tresckow and Kurt Knoblauch of the RFSS office, held just three days before hostilities between Germany and the Soviet Union began. In this meeting it was decided that the 2 SS Infantry Brigade along with the 1 SS Infantry Brigade and the SS Cavalry Brigade would be used in the rear of the advancing army to conduct anti partisan operations as well as assisting in rounding up the Jewish population. A few weeks later they were involved in the mass murder of the population of the occupied territories, their victims for 1941, could be measured in the tens of thousands. 
In 1942, the 19th and 21st Latvian Security Battalions from the Latvian Legion were attached to the Brigade. The brigade was now an international formation that included Dutch, Flemish and Norwegian volunteer Legions. 
In January 1943, the 19th and 21st Latvian Schuma (Police) Battalions* [involved in the Holocaust] were serving with the Brigade, impressed by their conduct, Heinrich Himmler changed the 2 SS Infantry Brigade into a Latvian Brigade and at the same time set the foundations for a Latvian Division. The existing 18th, 24th, and 26th Latvian Schuma Battalions serving in Leningrad were used to form the Brigade’s 2nd SS Volunteer Regiment. They were then sent for training at Krasnoje Selo, where Himmler added the 16th Latvian Schuma Battalion to the brigade in February. [4
On 18 May 1943, these Latvian Battalions along with the other three Latvian Legion Battalions were incorporated into the 2 SS Infantry Brigade, and re-designated the 2 SS Latvian Brigade. The Dutch, Flemish and Norwegian formations were then removed from the Brigade and the 2 SS Latvian Brigade was deployed with Army Group North. It was placed under the command of Brigadeführer Fritz von Scholz and was engaged in defending the west bank of the Volkhov River near Leningrad until late 1943. 
In January 1944, the Brigade was used as the cadre in the formation of the 19th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (2nd Latvian).

In an official statement made on 27 January 2005, the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the ICRC stated:
Auschwitz also represents the greatest failure in the history of the ICRC, aggravated by its lack of decisiveness in taking steps to aid the victims of Nazi persecution. This failure will remain part of the ICRC’s memory, as will the courageous acts of individual ICRC delegates at the time.

While the transport costs of the deportation trains of the SS were discussed. The speaker of Ganzenmüller, Wilhelm Kleinmann, Deputy of Director General of the Deutsche Reichsbahn, should clarify the questions related to the SS in the transport.
The previous activities for Himmler found its recognition so Kranefuss was promoted to SS-Brigadeführer on 30 January 1944.
