Topf und Söhne (Topf and Sons)

Topf und Söhne (Topf and Sons)

The former headquarters of the firm J.A. Topf & Söhne (J.A. Topf and Sons) is an authentic site of industrial complicity in the Holocaust. The firm provided the SS with high-performance furnaces for the incineration of corpses from the concentration camps and didn't hesitate to suggest technical solutions for "optimising" the slaughter being carried out in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

The site is now a place of remembrance hosting a permanent exhibition on the firm's history and other temporary displays. It offers itself as a place for historically informed reflection on ethical aspects of work and economic activity in today's society.
