The fact that the Nazi German Government used the Dehomag D11 tabulating machines to keep track of the prisoners at Auschwitz and Treblinka wasn't something that IBM could do anything about. IBM was only concerned with the progress of Science.

It makes me wonder why did IBM go to such lengths to hide the origin of the income generated by the leasing of the Dehomag machines.
