Siemens_artLab at Pulse Miami


Siemens_workLab at Auschwitz

Prisoners at forced labor in the Siemens factory. Auschwitz camp, Poland, 1940-1944.

"Preceding World War II Siemens was involved in funding the rise of the Nazi Party and the secret rearmament of Germany. During the Second World War, Siemens supported the Hitler regime, contributed to the war effort and participated in the "Nazification" of the economy. Siemens had many factories in and around notorious concentration camps to build electric switches for military uses. In one example, almost 100,000 men and women from Auschwitz worked in a Siemens factory inside the camp, supplying the electricity to the camp."
