IBM's Role In The Third Reich
IBM's Role In The Third Reich

Listen
AIR DATE: November 16, 2012

IBM is still one of the great American corporations but, argues Edwin Black, it was implicated in the activities of the Third Reich. The company sold equipment to the German government that helped it collate records and speed its plan for genocide. Black will be speaking about ""The Case Against IBM for its Role in the Holocaust—What the New Documentation Shows" at the Boyd School of Law at UNLV on Tuesday. He joins us to talk about his findings.
 
GUEST
 
Edwin Black, author of "IBM and the Holocaust"

    Why should anyone be surprised. US companies have been at the forefront of supporting dictatorships throughout the world (usually supported by our own government, BTW) and provided everything needed to kill and/or turn into refugees tens of millions of people from Vietman to Chile to Iraq to Dominican Republic to Cambodia to Guatemala to Iran, etc. It might be noted that the Israeli government and industry played an instrumental role in the support of apartheid in South Africa and both are playing similar roles in their dealings with the Palestinians.
