i S - S SSw-ww- (Photos by ILLUS; KEYSTONE VIEW) Friedrich Bayer and Company, Lever- kusen, was one of the two most powerful chemical firms in Germany. It pooled its assets with another company in Ludwigshafen-and this was the beginning of IG Farben, although not until the merger of nine firms in 1925 was the present fG born. This, however, was the parent plant. (below) Some of the 4 directors of the IG Farben concerns. Geheimrat Her- mann Schmitz was president of the board of directors (Vorstand) of Farben; Georg von Schnitzler was commercial director of the division which controlled all dye-stuffs, com- mercial chemicals, and pharmaceu- t1cals; Dr. Fritz ter Meer, an outstand- ing scientist, was chief of the technical board of the Vorstand. All these men pictured-once so powerful in IG Farben-are awaiting trial.
