I.G. Farben after 1945

After the end of World War II, the Allies wanted to split up I.G. Farbenindustrie AG. In the 1950s, the corporation was decartelized into the three large founding firms: BASF, Bayer, and Hoechst. Until its final bankruptcy in 2003 and conversion to a foundation, the assignee, I.G. Farben i.L., was repeatedly confronted with claims for compensation by former forced laborers.
