IG Farben


Chemical company in Germany that manufactured the poison gas Zyklon B.

IG Farben cooperated closely with the Nazi Party during the Second World War. This company used forced labourers on a large scale, some of them in Auschwitz. Its subsidiary Degesch manufactured the pesticide Zyklon B, which was used as a poison in the gas chambers of the death camps. Over two million people, primarily Jews, but also gypsies (Roma and Sinti) were killed in this way.
