Does anyone know of any German information and technology companies that were prosecuted by the Allies after the end of the World War II for being complicit in the Holocaust?

That DEHOMAG or IBM was responsible for the Holocaust is a conspiratory theory, and an especially ignorant one - in effect comparable with Holocaust denialism.
Nobody ever saw any Hollerith machines in ghettos, or in death camps, or in Eastern Europe during the so-called Holocaust by bullets.

The truth is the German Jews were required by the "Law on the Alteration of Family and Personal Names" to assume additional names “Israel” or “Sara" (especially in their "papers") and they did it suspecting nothing. From then on they were trapped and there was no escape for them.
Any person asking for their papers knew immediately they were Jews.

Similarily the Jews in Poland were ordered to move to ghettos and to register there, and they did it suspecting nothing. From then on they were trapped and there was no escape for them.
