A short Curriculum Vitae of IG Farben

IG Farben (short for Interessen-Gemeinschaft Farbenindustrie AG) ("syndicate of dyestuff corporations") (and also called I.G. Farbenfabriken) was a German conglomerate of companies formed in 1925 and even earlier during World War I.
Farben is German for "paints", "dyes", or "colors", and initially many of these companies produced dyes, but soon began to embrace more advanced chemistry.
The founding of IG Farben was a reaction to Germany's defeat in World War I.
IG Farben held a near total monopoly on chemical production, later during the National Socialist (Nazi) regime, including manufacturing Zyklon B poison for the gas chambers. - [ READ MORE ]
