Hitler's top men dreamed up the horrors of the Holocaust, but without the support of German engineers and industrialists like Topf & Sons, they would never have succeeded in murdering millions.


Through technology developed and products built in the Topf & Sons factories, Auschwitz was equipped with four crematoria that resembled factories where as many as 8,000 corpses could be burned in a day.


The new memorial site uses original documents and artifacts to show the production of the Auschwitz ovens. The exhibit opens Thursday.
