German Corpse Factory
The German Corpse Factory or Kadaververwertungsanstalt (literally ""Corpse-Utilization Factory""), also sometimes called the ""German Corpse-Rendering Works"" or ""Tallow Factory"" was one of the most notorious anti-German atrocity propaganda stories circulated in World War I.According to the story, the Kadaververwertungsanstalten was a special installation supposedly operated by the Germans in which, because fats were so scarce in Germany due to the British naval blockade, German battlefield corpses were rendered down for fat, which was then used to manufacture nitroglycerine, candles, lubricants, and even boot dubbing. It was supposedly operated behind the front lines by the DAVG-Deutsche Abfall-Verwertungs Gesellschaft (""German Offal Utilization Company"").Piers Brendon has called it ""the most appalling atrocity story"" of World War I, while Phillip Knightley has called it ""the most popular atrocity story of the war."" After the war John Charteris, the British former Chief of Army Intelligence, allegedly stated in a speech that he had invented the story for propaganda purposes, with the principal aim of getting the Chinese to join the war against Germany. This was widely believed in the 1930s, and was used by the Nazis as part of their own anti-British propaganda. Recent scholars do not credit the claim that Charteris created the story. Historian Randal Marlin says, “the real source for the story is to be found in the pages of the Northcliffe press”, referring to newspapers owned by Lord Northcliffe. Adrian Gregory says that the story originated from rumours that had been circulating for years, and that it was not ""invented"" by any individual: “The corpse-rendering factory was not the invention of a diabolical propagandist; it was a popular folktale, an ‘urban myth’, which had been circulated for months before it received any official notice.”
