... After World War II, the Allies stripped the firm of most of its assets, which were transferred to the three chemical firms Bayer, Hoechst (now Aventis) and BASF. Since then IG Farben's legal successor has been in the process of being liquidated, while its stocks continue to be traded.

BBC News | EUROPE | Nazi slave cash dismissed as 'gesture'
Former Nazi slave Rudy Kennedy was only 15 when he was taken to Auschwitz. "Most of the banks contributing to the payment fund will be supplying more in this year's Christmas bonuses to their senior staff than to the entire group of survivors of the Nazi regime," he claims.
"I was taken as a 15-year-old with my family from Breslau in Poland to Auschwitz... My mother and my sister were gassed immediately but my father and myself were allowed to work. I was owned by the SS and they hired us out to big companies such as Hoechst, BASF, Agfa and Bayer. My father managed to stay alive about eight weeks."
