IBM and the Holocaust by Edwin Black (2001), Random House.
This is from the forward to the book--
TO MY DAUGHTER RACHEL, who will reaad this book; AND TO SIX MILLION WHO WILL NOT.
My parents are Holocaust survivors. My mother escaped from a boxcar at Treblinka, was shot, buried..my father discovered her...
The Nazis had my parents' names. How?
I was haunted by a question whose answer had long eluded historians. The Germans always had the lists of Jewish names. But how did the Nazis get the lists? For decades, no one has known. Few have asked.
...one day in 1993 in Washington at the United States Holocaust Museum. There, in the very first exhibit, an IBM Hollerith D-11 card sorting machine--riddled with circuits, slots, and wires--was prominently displayed. Clearly affixed to the machine's front panel glistened and IBM nameplate....so alothough 15 million people, including mnost Holocaust experts, have seen the display...little more was understood about this provocative display other than the brief curator's descroption at the exhibit and a few pages of supportive research.
I still remember staring at the machine for an hour, and the moment when I turned to my mother and father who accompanied me to the museum that day and promised them I would discover more.
The story of IBM and the Holocaust is just a beginning. I could have written twenty books with the documents I uncovered, one for every country in Europe.
Only through exposing and examining what really occurred can the world of technology finally adopt the well-worn mottoo: NEVER AGAIN.
In 1975 a crack team of publishers was sentenced to death by a judicial commiteee. They promptly escaped from the cult and now live life on the run. If you have a problem ... and if you can find them ... maybe you can contact the A--postate Team"
