Transcript of Dr. Mengele, The Experiments, The Death

Imperfections to Nazis
Nordic/Aryan race was most important goal of Nazis
Blonde hair, blue eyes, superman were going to be only race
Blacks, Hispanics, Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals and anyone who did not meet requirements were ‘eliminated’ from society
Freezing/ Hypothermia
1) Sun Lamp
So hot they’d burn the body
One homosexual victim was repeatedly cooled to unconsciousness then revived with lamps till pouring sweat. Died after several test session
2) Internal Irrigation
Water near blistering temperatures forcefully irrigated into ‘victims’ stomach, bladder, and intestines.
All subjects died
3) Hot Bath
Temperature of bath water slowly raised
Proved to be the best
Many died due to shock if raised to fast
4) Body Heat
Heinrich Himmler suggested to Dr. Rascher to use women to warm the body's
Suggested that men and women did the nasty
Perverted but worked, not as good as hot bath

Genetic Experimentation
Started after camps began
Testing was broad and specialized
Two major types of testing
Refine Master race
Determine cause of defects
Twins, Dwarfs, and many with unique physical features were selected
Tests determined Gypsies had different blood and inclined to criminal behavior
However this finding was told about other races
Party needed propaganda to prove all other races were inferior. Measurements of heads, eyes, nose, blood were required.

Dr. Mengele, The Experiments, The Death
By: Paris Toll

Medical Background
Freezing/ Hypothermia
Conducted by high command
On men to simulate the conditions of armies on eastern front
On young healthy Jewish and Russian men
Divided into 2 parts
How long it would take to lower body temperature till death
How to resurrect
Known for his infamous, inhumane medical experimentations in Auschwitz.
1953, earned a PH.D in physical anthropology from University of Munich
January 1937. He became the assistant to Dr. Otmar who specialized in the study of twins
at the Institute for Hereditary Biology and Racial Hygiene in Frankfurt.
1937. Joined the Nazi party. Following year joined SS, same year he got his medical degree
1940, drafted into army, volunteered into medical service of Waffen-SS (Armed SS)
Documentation scant. Contradictory regarding his activities between 1940 - early 1943
he was first a medical expert for Race and Settlement Main Office in the Summer of 1940
All SS required to submit general testing to insure racial purity before marriage
All rules for marriage were so complex
Thousands denied
If laws broken, death penalty
No adoption, unless by racially suited german families
1st part: How to lower body temp. Till death
Icy vat of water (sub zero temps, men stripped naked)
Fastest way of lowering body temperatures.
They learnt that most victims pass out and shortly after pass away when their body temperatures dropped to 25℃ ((77 ℉))
Also learnt that the russian men could withstand the cold longer than the other men without passing out, later were killed from temp being lowered staying in longer
second way to freeze a victim was to strap them to a stretcher and place them outside naked. The extreme winters of Auschwitz made a natural place for this experiment.
Twin Experiments pt. 1
Measured from head to toe
Every inch was measured
Specific and careful measurements
Allowed to keep hair for the first couple of days
Had blood drawn, everyday
Had supply of twins, wouldn’t get in trouble if any died
After all data was collected, twins killed with single injection of chloroform to heart
Made sure twins died at same time
Dissected, Organs sent to research centers
Usually during examinations used no anesthesia
From Jona Laks
Mengele removed organs from people without anaesthetic, and if one twin died the other would be murdered.
Vera Kriegel says that he killed people with an injection to the heart, and then dissected them.
