Expanded Edition of Bestselling Book to be Released at Yeshiva University
Edwin Black, the award-winning author of IBM and the Holocaust, will release a new expanded edition of his 2001 bestselling book at a special live global streaming event at Yeshiva University’s Furst Hall, 500 West 185th Street, New York City on February 26 at 3 p.m.
The book details the business dealings of the American-based multinational corporation International Business Machines (IBM) and its German subsidiaries with the German government of Adolf Hitler during the 1930s and World War II and how IBM’s technology helped facilitate Nazi genocide against the Jewish people.
The new edition includes some 32 pages of never-before-published internal IBM correspondence, State and Justice Department memos and concentration camp documents that graphically chronicle exactly what IBM did and what they knew during the 12-year Hitler regime. IBM has never denied any of the information in the book and for years has claimed that it has no information about its Hitler-era activities involving the Third Reich.
The event is sponsored by the American Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists, and co-sponsored by Yeshiva University’s Office of Pre-Law Advisement, Jacob Hecht Pre-Law Society, Beren and Wilf campuses, in partnership with StandWithUs in association with NAHOS—National Association of Jewish Child Holocaust Survivors, Generations of the Shoah International, Scholars for Peace in the Middle East, the State of California Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, Human Rights and Tolerance, The Auto Channel, History Network News, The Cutting Edge News, Spero Forum, the Jewish Virtual Library, and many other groups.
At the Live Global Streaming Launch for the IBM and the Holocaust Expanded Edition, Black will take questions for an international audience that has both submitted them in advance or will submit them live during the event. The event can be seen at www.ibmandtheholocaust.com.
