IG Farben at the 1937 Paris Exposition
 I.G. Farbenindustrie Aktiengesellschaft
Das Deutsche Haus or German Pavilion on the river Seine in Paris
The 1937 International Exposition of Arts and Applied Science in Modern Life in Paris (Paris Exposition des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne) featured an enormous German exhibition hall on the banks of the Seine river with a giant eagle and swastika on top. Inside, visitors were treated to gorgeous displays of the latest advancements in German arts and applied science.
 I.G. Farbenindustrie
IG Farben research and development
Beuna synthetic rubber industries
At the forefront of exhibitors was the huge German chemical conglomerate I.G. Farbenindustrie Aktiengesellschaft, better known simply as IG Farben. As the name implies the company got its start and made its name in chemical dyes of all kinds, especially indigo color dyes. A research oriented company, IG Farben owned Bayer pharmaceutical company, Agfa photographic products, the Leuna gasoline company, Beuna synthetic rubber industries, light metal manufacturing industries, synthetic gemstone manufacturing, insulation companies, waterproofing and mothproofing companies, etc., etc. Names like Bayer, Agfa, Leuna, Beuna and Celophane were household brands known worldwide at the time of the Third Reich. IG Farben was an industry leader in every field they entered. In 1937 the company had over 17,000 employees.
IG Farben was an industry leader
IG Farben HQ in Frankfurt aM
During World War II their Leuna synthetic gasoline production facilities were prime US 15th Air Force and US 8th Air Force bombing targets. The entire concentration camp at Auschwitz was built around the Beuna synthetic rubber manufacturing facilities there which were built, managed and run on a day-to-day basis by IG Farben.

IG Farben Celophane
The 6-3/4 x 6-3/4 inch book we offer here does a beautiful job of explaining the history of the company and the amazing results of their research and development. There are many excellent photographs documenting the manufacturing processes and products of the company. There is no mention that we could find of their famous Zyklon B poison gas pellet business and of course, Konzentrationslager Auschwitz and the Beuna synthetic rubber production facilities there were not yet built.
Kunst und Technik im modernem Leben
At the end of World War II it was decided by the victorious Allies that IG Farben was guilty of many sorts of crimes, and the company was disassembled with parts and pieces sold off to other manufacturers or claimed by various German enemies as war reparations. An excellent examination on one of the most important German industrial concerns of the Third Reich period. Very difficult to find and in very good used condition.

Also for sale on, an original IG Farben employee ID and original Third Reich advertising for chemical retardents made by IG Farben, endorsed by the RLB.  We are happy to combine shipping to save you money!
