PRESS RELEASE – NY Times Bestselling Author Explains IBM’s Pivotal Involvement with the Holocaust



NY Times Bestselling Author Explains IBM’s Pivotal Involvement with the Holocaust

Newsweek called it “Explosive and Stunning.” The Washington Post called it “Beyond Dispute.” The Milwaukee Journal asserted it was “Impossible to Refute.”

Now New York Times bestselling author Edwin Black comes to Tallahassee’s Holocaust Education Resource Council to deliver an electrifying presentation entitled “How IBM Co-Planned and Co-Organized the Holocaust,” based on his global bestseller IBM and the Holocaust. Black’s presentation is scheduled for 7 PM January 21, 2015 at the FSU Alumni Center Grand Ballroom, 1030 W. Tennessee St., Tallahassee, sponsored by the Florida State University College of Law & the Holocaust Education Resource Council.

More than 1.2 million copies of IBM and the Holocaust are in print in numerous editions in more than 14 languages in more than 65 countries. The author has lectured around the world explaining how IBM’s punch card technology, a precursor to the modern computer, organized and systemized the Nazi identification and extermination of six million Jews and millions of other Europeans. The custom-made processes for the Third Reich were micromanaged from the company’s New York headquarters and later its overseas offices after America entered WWII.

Brad Pitt recently optioned the book for a major Hollywood feature film, according to press reports.

Black makes hundreds of appearances around the United States and overseas speaking on his 11 bestselling books, and other topics, and logs frequent programs in Florida. But his HERC/FSU Law School appearance is his first in Tallahassee.

Says Black about his revelations, “For IBM, it was never about the antisemitism, never about the National Socialism—it was always about the money.”
