Summary:
Backed by exhaustive research, Black's case is simple and stunning: that IBM facilitated the identification and roundup of millions of Jews during the 12 years of the Third Reich. ... Black's evidence may be the most damning to appear yet against a purported corporate accomplice.

Intro Text
Edwin Black is probably best known for IBM and the Holocaust, an international bestseller, published in 2001, documenting the previously unknown twelve-year strategic relationship between IBM and Hitler's Third Reich. IBM developed custom-made data processing programs, using punch cards, to organize and accelerate all six phases of the Holocaust, from identification, expulsion and confiscation to ghettoization, deportation and extermination. IBM and the Holocaust was simultaneously released in 40 countries in nine languages on February 11, 2001 to international acclaim and worldwide headlines. It immediately became a bestseller on the New York Times list as well as those in many other nations such as Canada, Germany, Italy, and Brazil. The work is now available in 61 countries in 14 languages and 27 editions, and it has been optioned for film. Black has lectured and toured on the topic, from the Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles to the Royal War Museum in London to the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw. The author's writing on the subject has appeared in publications from the Los Angeles Times to Der Spiegel to the Jerusalem Post. His interviews for the book have included scores of network TV and radio shows from NBC's Today Show, Dateline, and NPR to England's BBC, Germany's ZDF, and France's TF-1. In May 2003, IBM and the Holocaust received the American Society of Journalists and Authors top two awards: best nonfiction book of the year; plus, an excerpt with additional information about IBM in Auschwitz appearing in the Village Voice received the award as the best newspaper investigative article of the year. Crown Publishing also submitted the book for a Pulitzer Prize nomination.
