The help of IBM in implementing the Holocaust is one of the lesser-known stories of the time.

But IBM's help was indispensable for a regime that was planning on industrial efficiency to catalogue and kill Jews.
IBM worked closely with Hitler's Germany, not just giving them their equipment but also their know-how, in order to help them in their plans.

This included using IBM machines to track census information in order to identify Jews around Europe.
