When the US airforce bombed his factories, he sued the US military for destroying his property and WON.

Technically, it was his property. Was this before or during the war that he made these?

Read "IBM and the Holocaust." Basically IBM made the punchcard tabulating machines -- which allowed the Nazis to keep track of the Jews -- which allowed them to be rounded up and slaughtered. Thomas Watson (CEO of IBM) provided the punchcards all through WWII. If he had cut off the supply, the Nazi administrative system would have broken down.

Read IBM and the Holocaust.  Basically IBM provided the punchcard tabulating machines that permitted the N.zi administrative system to continue functioning all throughout WWII.  Thomas Watson could have cut off the supply of punchcards and thrown a huge roadblock in the way of the the concentration camps -- but he didn't.
