Bmw supplied and I think Mercedes Benz also had a part in it. IBM developed the time cards and number system to tattoo and keep track of prisoners.

Nice huh?

Bayer had to be the worst. I was creeped out leaving Cologne by train, heading north you pass the enormous Bayer complex. This place must have stretched out 2 kms or more along the west side of the track. It was on the scale of some of the bigger US car plants.

A lot of americans became billionaires by hiring ex nazi engineers and science experts at the end of the war,to say all business men were nazi's were stretching it.The elite of germany never like Hitler but did not shy away from making money from the war,Hitler preyed on the lower class people for his early support.
