              SS-Hauptsturmführer Karl Böhmichen was a physician in several concentration camps who evaded prosecution, worked as a physician in postwar Germany and died a free man in 1964 without ever being punished for his crimes.

In April 1933 he joined the Hitler Youth. On November 9, 1933, he became a member of the SS (SS No. 256,732). On 21 November 1939, Böhmichen was assigned to SS-Standarte 1 Deutschland as a reservist of the medical training company. On February 1, 1940, he began his service in Sachsenhausen concentration camp and was employed as a camp doctor. In June 1940, he was transferred to the Flossenbürg concentration camp, where he worked as a camp doctor. In Flossenbürg, Böhmichen participated in forced sterilizations. In September 1941 he was transferred to the Neuengamme concentration camp as a camp doctor and remained there until the spring of 1942. Böhmichen was also involved in the murder of sick people with Evipan and Strychnine. In April 1942 he was transferred to the Mauthausen concentration camp. While working there, he repeatedly carried out selections. In the Gusen concentration camp, Böhmichen conducted medical experiments on around 300 prisoners suffering from tuberculosis. At the beginning of 1944 he was stationed for a short time in the Plaszow concentration camp, from May 1944 in the Kauen concentration camp. In July 1944, Böhmichen was sent to the Riga-Kaiserwald concentration camp as a camp doctor. In September 1944, he came to the front in Latvian Courland to the 6th SS Volunteer Army Corps, where he worked as a battalion doctor until the end of the war. In September 1945 he was captured in Memel by soldiers of the Red Army and sentenced in Rostov by a Soviet military tribunal to 25 years of forced labor. On 18 October 1955 he was released from a camp in asbestos. In February 1956 he got a job as an assistant physician in Münster.  At this time he also began to write his doctoral thesis, which he completed in 1958. From 1958 he worked as a contract doctor in the supply hospital Bad Tölz. From 1962 he worked as deputy chief physician at the Hillersbach health resort. He died on 14 July 1964. [source: Wikipedia]
