-Joseph Mengele "Humanity is not concerned with us. Today anything is allowed. Anything is possible, even these cemeteries"
Night by Ellie Wiesel High Altitude Experiments – Victims were put into pressure chambers to test how high of an altitude people could survive at.
Freezing Experiments – Victims were either placed outside naked overnight or placed in ice water and made to go into hypothermia in order to find out the most effective means of revival. These findings are widely used today to treat people in hypothermic states.
Sulfanilmide Experiments – Victims were given cuts that were then tied off on either side of the laceration. These wounds were then infected with a variety of diseases and were irritated with bits of wood and glass being rubbed into them. Doctors used sulfanilamide to treat the wound and test how effective it was. Poison Experiments – Victims were injected with poison to see exactly what it did. This has helped doctors to know what to do in the event of poisoning from different types of poison.
Tuberculosis Experiments – Victims were injected with the virus to discover if there were any natural immunities to it and to try and develop a vaccine to it.
Transplant Experimentation – Victims had limbs removed that the doctors then tried to transplant onto other victims, unsuccessfully. They also had portions of bones, muscles, and nerves removed to see if they would grow back.
Sterilization Experiments – Nazis experimented with how to sterilize mass amounts of people, in order to prevent undesirable Eye Experiments – Patients would be given eye drops to use in an effort to try and figure out how to change eye color. This was Mengele’s way of trying to create an Aryan race.
Twin Experiments – Mengele dissected twins and used them to see if there was a specific genetic trait that led to two people being born with one pregnancy, in an effort to make the Aryan race multiply faster. His dissections found that twins, especially identical twins, are the same on the inside and outside. Unfortunately, a lot of Mengele’s experiments and findings cannot be used as legitimate medical research because of the extreme conditions that victims were under, and because there was no control group. "We continued our march toward the square. In the middle stood the notorious Dr. Mengele (a typical SS officer: a cruel face, but not devoid of intelligence, and wearing a monocle); a conductor's baton in his hand, he was standing among the other officers. The baton moved unremittingly, sometimes to the right, sometimes to the left."
- Night by Elie Wiesel Mengele is a symbol of the degredation of his profession. The Hippocratic Oath is clear that doctors "will prescribe regimens for the good of [their] patients." Mengele used exclusively immoral methods to learn about the human body. "Mengele the Protector" butchered babies without anaesthesia yet earned his moniker from Gypsy children with a good bedside manner and candy. Parents of "experiments" killed their children to protect them from further harm. The influence of Mengele on medical ethics has been disturbing. But there are few life-saving medical techniques that have not benefitted from Mengele's instability. A good deal of now-lifesaving research could not have been done with labrats. In spite of university courses taught on medical ethics, science's only real justification is the use of the enemy's knowledge against him. Thus, medical committees continue to reprimand medical wrongdoing and fringe speech. The euthanasia of toddlers and rape have been openly contemplated in research papers. But journalistic followup demonstrates that professionals who present such ideas may keep their jobs, in spite of discipline, due to office politics and even academic tolerance of these theses, the censorship of which has been termed anti-intellectual.
