Bulmash: HASAG, or Hugo Schneider AG, was an established metal goods manufacturer in Germany. From its beginnings as a manufacturer of lamps, it evolved into an infamous Nazi arms manufacturer with many factories across Europe using slave-labor from concentration camps such as Auschwitz and Buchenwald, as well as numerous ghettos in Poland. Many thousands of Jews and other prisoners perished working for HASAG under the most execrable conditions.
