Description
J A Topf and Sons began life as a well-respected, but unremarkable, engineering firm in the provincial German city of Erfurt. A family-owned business, it produced heating systems, as well as brewing and malting equipment. But the advent of the Second World War would see the company become a manufacturer of crematoria for concentration camps, including Auschwitz and Buchenwald. Bartlett reveals exactly how and why the name of Topf and Sons became synonymous with Nazi inhumanity, and examines the natures and behaviour of the men responsible for the company’s enduring infamy.
