SS-HAUPTSTURMFÜHRER DR. JOSEPH MENGELE
SS-Hauptsturmführer Dr. Joseph Mengele will always be remembered for his actions at the medical research facilities of Auschwitz concentration camp. Mengele often inspected and selected new arrivals at Auschwitz, determining who was fit for work and who was to be killed immediately. He always searched for twins and people with abnormities such as dwarfs for his experiments on humans. Mengele’s experiments included attempts to change eye color by injecting chemicals into children’s eyes, various amputations of limbs, and other surgeries but his favorite were experiments on twin children. After an experiment was over, the twins were usually killed and their bodies dissected. In 1940, Mengele was ordered to work in the SS RSHA, Abt. Sip. II in Berlin by the head of the Sanitäts-Inspektion der Waffen-SS, SS Oberführer Karl Genzken. Mengele also worked at or for the ‘Kaiser Wilhelm Institut fuer Anthropologie und menschliche Erblehre’. In April of 1943 he was promoted to SS Captain and soon after he was transferred to Auschwitz concentration camp. Mengele and other members of the medical staff of the camp were responsible for ‘selections’ of prisoners, determining who would be kept alive for slave labor, who would get killed immediately and who would be suitable for horrible experiments. 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 and 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.
