German Company that Manufactured Poison Gas in Holocaust Obtains Patent

The National Catholic Reporter said the following about RU-486:

“[RU-486] reminds politicians and the chemical industry in Germany of their special historical and moral responsibility to such a topic. Among other things is certainly resurrected shadow of the German past when the Hoechst Company, a successor enterprise IG Farben [the German company that patented the poison gas Zyklon B used in the gas chambers during World War II] obtained the patent RU-486.”

Cardinal Joachim Meisner of Cologne
