Through a selection of primary and secondary sources, Death by Design examines the uses of technology during the Holocaust and the specific ways in which scientists, architects, medical professionals, businessmen, and engineers participated in the planning and operation of the concentration and extermination camps that were the foundation of the “final solution.” The book discusses the overriding intellectual, ethical, and philosophical implications of the Nazi’s use of science and technology in their killing operations.
