So there ways many ways that the Nazi’s treated the Jews and did medical experiments to find out the best way to torture people and the best way to treat wounds that they get in battle or if they get sick. So one of the many things they did was freeze/hypothermia experiments. The experiments were conducted to men to simulate the conditions the armies suffered on the Eastern Front. The German forces were ill prepared for the bitter cold. Thousands of German soldiers died of freezing or were debilitated by cold injuries. There were two parts on how they would freeze them. First, to establish how long it would take to lower the body temperature to death and second how to best resuscitate the frozen victim. In conjunction to the hypothermia experiments, …show more content…

Using two doctors, each twin was simultaneously given an injection in the heart, taking their lives. They were dissected and their organs were sent to the Institute of Biological Racial and Evolutionary Research Berlin. Civilian physicians Siegfried Rugg and Hans Romberg of the German experimental Institute of Aviation joined Air Force physician Sigmund Rasher in high-altitude experiments carried out to see how long people could withstand the loss of air pressure. Prisoners were put into pressure chambers to replicate what might happen at high altitudes. Some died; many suffered. Presumably, this was meant to ascertain at what altitude Air Force personnel could bail out of an airplane. At other concentration camps such as Sachsenhausen, Dachau, Natzweiler, Buchenwald and Neuengamme, pharmaceutical compounds were tested to fight contagious diseases such as malaria, typhus, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, yellow fever, and infectious hepatitis. Sulfa drugs, only recently discovered, were tested at the Ravensbrueck camp. Elsewhere, prisoners were subjected to gas poisoning to test antidotes. In Ravensbruck new methods were explored to deal with fractures and war wounds. Prisoners' legs were broken or amputated; transplants were
