1943, Dr. Josef Mengele signed document, KWI-A, Sedatives

This is an original document, dated March, 1943, while Josef Mengele was at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology when he was recovering from a wound inflicted at the Eastern Front. The 7 x 9 inch, double sided document shows the order of 50 ampules of Luminal, a sedative used in the experimental research done on patients of Mengele's.
 In 1942, Mengele was sent to the Eastern Front with the 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking, where he was wounded while serving as a combat surgeon and transferred back west due to his injury.
Upon his return to Germany, Mengele was promoted to SS Captain and joined his mentor, von Verschuer, at the Nazi-sanctioned Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity, and Eugenics. KWIA had been headed by Eugen Fischer from the late 1920s to the early 1940s, and was replaced by von Verschuer in 1942.
While Mengele was at KWIA, the institute was treated as a necessary element of German wartime industry due to its contributions to the studies of genetics, heredity, and perhaps most relevantly to the Third Reich, eugenics. Thus Mengele followed in a long line of scientific research aimed at the categorization and potential cleansing of races. In some ways, the research conducted at KWIA paved the path to the atrocious Aktion T-4, the program of euthanizing or sterilizing those considered to be unfit for reproduction or life.

Mengele, with his mentor Otmar von Verschuer, performed lethal and agonizing yet under the Nazis legitimate experiments using twins as test subjects, preferably using Jewish andf Gypsy children for tests. Mengele sent all the results of his experiments to Dr. von Verschuer at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute and it took two trucks to carry all his 'findings'. Verschuer destroyed them and so the full extent of what Mengele did at Auschwitz will never be known.

This document was found in one of a small collection of Mengele owned books that he used while at Auschwitz that Otmar von Verschuer kept and took home after the war. When he died his family found them and sold them to a Jewish doctor in New York who was collecting camp related material. This doctor died in 1990 and our consignor bought several books from this collection and hidden in one of them this document was found.
