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
After the war Nazis were evil people who were mostly taken to trial to be killed, jailed, or released unless they got away to another unknown country (www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/NAZIS:CHAP1.HTM). After the Germans had realized what a horrible thing they were doing, they had a war in which they all wanted the Nazis destroyed. Hundreds of Nazis were taken to trial, and the worst of them were put to death. However some of the Nazis weren’t as lucky as these before the real German police the Germans got hold of some Nazis and took
The Demented Doctor “The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we’re doing it.” said Josef Mengele. He knew his own wrong doings all too well. This seemed to be the hard cold truth to every soul that was taken by the “Angel of Death”. This Angel of Death was cruel and horrible in every way imaginable. The poor souls of these prisoners were so brainwashed that they began to see him as a father.
During World War II, Hitler and his Nazis ruled Germany declaring Jews and various other races inferior. Afterwards, all Jews in Germany were rounded up and sent to different concentration camps all throughout Germany. Most people sent to the camps were gassed; however, some were experimented on for the Nazi’s own gain. There were terrible, traumatizing experiments that took place on these camps, horrible experiences for all victims. The gruesome experiments that took place during the Holocaust are abhorrent because the experiments they performed, the procedure of the tests, and the ethical conflicts that these despicable tests left behind.
“The more we do it to you, the less you seem to be believe we are doing it.” This is a quote from Dr. Josef Mengele and it gives people confused thoughts on what this means. Josef Mengele was a German Schutzstaffel officer and physician in Auschwitz concentration camp during World War 2. Dr. Mengele carried out human experiments on camp inmates, especially twins. Mengele performed horrific experiments on twins and received the nickname “The Angel of Death.” In this essay, I will tell you some of the horrible experiments Dr. Mengele did to the twins at Auschwitz and some background research on him. When Dr. Mengele needed test subjects, soldiers hunted for twins, giants, and dwarfs, but twins were his main subjects.
110). After a few clashes with the United States, to justify their actions the German government stated that the German army did what was legitimate. Reports issued showed that the evidence found was fabricated and that the claim of the Germans of being ambushed by the francs-tireurs and believing that it was a civilian resistance was totally not true. Finally it found that Germany attacked all the civilians deliberately in order to dominate them. Multiple reports came out stating that the German soldiers did a great physical damage to civilians and were responsible for brutally killing a large number of people mercilessly.
Freeman used this early procedures on patients that were stuffed in mental hospitals as guinea pigs for what he thought would be a cure to mental illness. Around this time, the only options for mental illness were about sedation. People were overdosed on insulin to push patients into hypoglycemic comas. They were also given metrozole which produced severe seizures. This, and electric shock therapy were thought to help sedate the patients.
Stanford Experiment: Unethical or Not Stanford Prison Experiment is a popular experiment among social science researchers. In 1973, a psychologist named Dr. Philip Zimbardo wants to find out what are the factors that cause reported brutalities among guards in American prisons. His aim was to know whether those reported brutalities were because of the personalities of the guards or the prison environment. However, during the experiment, things get muddled unexpectedly. The experiment became controversial since it violates some ethical standards while doing the research.
Nyiszlis story is contributed greatly to the history of the Holocaust. Although people might say the way Dr. Nyiszli acted in Auschwitz wasn’t right, he did it so he can share his story and the truth with everyone. He had a reason for it all. Now the world knows how cruel and cold-hearted they had to be to do all those evil things. Nyiszli tells us how SS officers were so heartless that they put thousands of people in ovens without even caring.
Also the common diseases that plagued the people, not only that but they types of bacteria they were exposed to. I am going to further address the antiseptic methods if any was implemented at all. Additionally a brief history behind the individuals who developed these techniques and their contribution to the medicine during the civil war.
I chose my topic because I felt like it would be interesting to research and talk about, as well as learn the other types of deaths that happened. I thought this might be somewhat interesting to do research on and to talk about. Nazi human experiments were a series of medical experiments on a large number of prisoners (including twins and children), Jews from across Europe, as well as Gypsies, Roman people of Central Europe, ethnic Poles, Soviet POWs and disabled Germans,
“The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside. It was sad to be taken to a concentration camp because it meant that it was the end of your life.
