The list is extensive. For example, workers would inoculate the prisoners with a disease that was disguised as a vaccination. Some would even infect them by raping them. They thought that this would determine how viable biological and germ warfare would be and how communicable it may be. (AeonStorm) They would also take the prisoners outside, tie them to stakes, and then proceed to test biological weapons on them, such as plague infested flea bombs.
Mengele and his team performed other experiments on the twins. In one experiment, to investigate the effects of various poisons upon human beings. The poison were secretly put into the subjects food and they died in result of the poison. Most were immediately killed and then they were able to perform autopsies on the subject. Another experiment involved malaria injections.
introduction In conducting this experiment is a way to view the aspects of the criminal justice field, along with the aspects as to how the body can decompose and disintegrate with different substances. The reason for this experiment as well as why we choose this particular experiment was for many different reasons. One main reason that was found to be interesting was a murder case having to do with our topic of testing acids and liquids to see which one will disintegrate pig bone and tissue the most efficient. The murder case was about a man named, John George Haigh. It was said that he killed his boss and dumped him into a 40-gallon barrel of acid (Casale,2017).
Not only was this camp filled with political prisoners but with artists, various intellectuals, some handicapped, and many homosexuals. According to Hitler, these types of people were considered unfit for the community of Germany. The first prisoners were approximately 200 Communists who were taken into what was called "protective custody," and were called the "enemies of the state." According to The Holocaust Research Project, Dachau became a useful training facility for the SS (or Schutzstaffel, which is German for “Protective organization”) and Dachau saw those with different convictions as lower-ranking and to deal with them, Nazi’s would kill them. Prisoners were used in medical experiments as well as slave labor to produce
Josef Mengele was infamous for killing hundreds of twins along with people with irregularities. He was nicknamed the angel of death because on occasion unexpected people would be chosen for his devious experiments. With his specially chosen specimens he performed horrid experiments even after their death. Though Josef Mengele did some terrible experiments he is a very important part of history and helps better understand the holocaust. Josef Mengele was born on March 16, 1911 in Gunzburg, Bavaria.
He started by cutting the heads open to get clear cuts to the margins between the frontal lobes and thalamus. It started with administering shock to leave the patient unconscious. He then used an ice pick to go behind the eyes to sever the frontal lobes of his patients. He became use to the fame of doing this procedure. He actually killed someone in Iowa because he moved the ice pick too far during a picture.
He even looked at hair patterns. Since the kids were given injections, it was hard to survive. If one of the twins died, the other was executed. He would give them one shot of chloroform to the heart Maybe mention this is how they died?. Afterward, they studied their organs and made prisoners do
Hitler’s principal motivation as the Nazi leader was the extermination of Jewish people. Thomas J. Watson founded IBM in 1911 and was president of his company. IBM at that point developed the predecessor of current computers, the punched card, which was essential for the administration of the United States’ Social Security Act of 1935. Hitler found admiration for his development and recognized Watson in 1937 with the "Das Verdienstkreuz des ordens vom Deutschen Adler" (The Cross of Merit of the Order of the German Eagle) which was the most unique form of appreciation that Hitler could concede to ambassadors, diplomats, and important foreign personalities. It was received among prominent figures such as Henry Ford, and James D. Mooney.
The Nazis would choose whether they were capable of doing difficult outdoor work or if they should be sent to the gas chambers. 865,000 people did upon arrival, mainly due to gassing (Killing Centers). Thousands of people died from exhaustion from working since they were already weak from having no food (Byers 112). In 1941 Hitler came up with the final solution. He set up killing centers to quickly kill as many Jews as possible.
A train took them there and if they try to escape, they would be shot at. Jews had to work at concentration camps with horrible treatments while Jews at death camps would be killed by guns or poison gas and some would be experimented on. The Nazi’s tried to keep their mass killings of Jews a secret. However, when the war ended, the world was shown the horrific places the Nazi’s had built and the people were horrified of Germany’s actions. After the Holocaust, people built memorials for the people who had suffered or died in it.
They were discriminated against, blamed for the war and on top of that millions of innocent people were killed off. They were forced to live in concentration camps. No law or money could help them, they were all alone. Hitler’s views were brought in an early age. The Jewish people to him were just pawns on a chessboard.
Unfortunately, some of the children were rounded up and secretly sterilized, some were subject to terrible medical experiments, and some simply mysteriously “disappeared.” The mixed race also had a lot of trouble with finding jobs and were even turned down when attempting to join their military. Not only were children victimized in Germany but adult African Germans were also treated horribly. Many were sent to internment camps and some were even murdered by the SS. Afro-Germans are not very known of, but they were a big part of the horrible actions Hitler took to please himself (Blacks during the Holocaust). Before Hitler built his nefarious camps, he started off by murdering Germany’s mentally and physically disabled.
All these brave people faced harsh punishments such as being hung, shot, or killed with poisonous gas. To conclude, concentration camps did horrible thing to people just because Hitler did see them as "desirable", Hitler thought that we should live in a world without Jews. So he sent them to concentration camps. They lived in harsh conditions. They went through harsh labor that killed most of the people.
