Zyklon B became a popular substance to be used in Extermination Camps. The use of Zyklon B on Death Camps gave a negative image of the toxic gas and it promptly became the symbol of death. In September, 1941, Germany gassed with Zyklon B about 850 prisoners from the Soviet War (USHMM “Gassing Operations”). Nazis could have used any other tactic to assassinate adversaries.

congruent with the institutions and feelings of the period were invented.” Mead in this quote is saying that inventions do not happen because of right or wrong but rather because of what the time period is prepared for. However, Gun powder not only started physical explosions it also started a new era of intellectual and social explosions. This invention led natural philosophers and soldiers alike to ask questions such as what happens to the cannonball after it leaves the cannon. This question took four hundred years and whole new fields of science to answer (Kelly 136).
