For many years, the involvement of I.G. Farben in the crimes of the Nazi regime was not a focus of research. Since the 1980s, however, in the context of studies of National Socialist occupation policy, the economy and business-industrial sector under the Third Reich, and the compensation of the Nazis’ victims, attention finally has been directed increasingly to I.G. Farben, too.

The texts on this website reflect the current state of research and thus the controversies in research as well. It is becoming clear that a nuanced picture of the history of I.G. Farben and of the Buna/Monowitz concentration camp already can be drawn, even though many questions still remain open. The objective of the website is to provide points and material for the ongoing discussion and to stimulate additional research.
