Abstract

This IQP analyzes whether German chemist Fritz Haber ever considered the moral implications of his involvement in the development of German chemical weapons, including Zyklon B. Haber, born a Jew, had family members killed in Nazi gas chambers, making this ethical dilemma even greater. This question was investigated using several biographies, articles, and original letters translated German. We determined there is no evidence that Haber regretted his involvement.
