From 1878 to 1948 the company Topf & Soehne did business in the squatted industrial area. During the period of National-socialism in Germany this company produced crematories as well as parts of the gas chambers for concentration- and extermination camps. Another part of the squatted area was owned by the company Linse, which produced the elevators that were used to transport the corpses from the gas chambers to the combustion furnaces where the corpses were burnt.
