Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

IG Farben was a giant German chemical industry conglomerate notorious for its role in committing war crimes during the Holocaust. Its pro-Nazi directorship collaborated with the Nazi leadership to produce quantities of Zyklon B, the Hydrocyanic acid insecticide used to gas millions of Jews at extermination centers, through its Degesch facility. Its facility near Auschwitz, Buna, was built to produce synthetic rubber: at least 50,000 prisoners died during its construction from starvation and exposure. Indeed, the bodies of prisoners were buried where they fell, in the wet cement. The company was seized by the Allies in 1945, its assets liquidated, and many executives tried for war crimes at Nuremberg. It continues to be in the process of liquidation.
