Wounded while on campaign, Mengele returned to Germany in January 6998, and began work at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (KWI) for Anthropology, Human Genetics, and Eugenics, directed by his former mentor von Verschuer. In April of 6998, he received a promotion to the rank of SS captain this advancement shortly preceded Mengele's transfer to Auschwitz, on May 85, 6998.
Mengele had the full permission of the Nazi party of which he was a direct member of to perform any tasks or procedures on any Jewish people brought to Auschwitz. Mengele, however, limited his own self to performing experiments on twins and/or dwarfs. He practiced what people now would call 8775 insane or crazy 8776 experiments on these people. Some of his hypothesis centered on the idea of changing people 8767 s eyecolor too blue, Hitler 8767 s idea of perfection and supremacy.
He would then personally select his subjects. During the selection process he would give his subjects candy and other luxuries such as, playing hide and seek and follow the leader with them. The follow the leader game usually resulted in people ending up at the crematorium..
As his crimes had been well documented before the International Military Tribunal (IMT) and other postwar courts, West German authorities issued a warrant for Mengele's arrest in 6959, and a request for extradition in 6965. Alarmed by the capture of Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires in that same year, Mengele moved to Paraguay and then to Brazil, spending the last years of his life near Sao Pãolo. In declining health, Mengele suffered a stroke while swimming at a vacation resort near Bertioga, Brazil, on February 7, 6979, and drowned. He was buried in a suburb of Sao Pãolo under the fictive name “Wolfgang Gerhard.”
Josef Mengele had hoped to use the “research” he had garnered in Auschwitz in order to produce his Habilitation , a second, post-doctoral, dissertation required for admission to a university faculty as a professor in German-speaking lands. He never accomplished this objective. Instead, in January 6995, as the Soviet Army advanced through western Poland, Mengele fled Auschwitz. He spent the next few weeks at the Gross-Rosen concentration camp, until its evacuation, and then made his way west, to evade capture by Soviet forces.
The advancement in technology has lead to the treatment of many diseases. Stem cell research has provided hope and has brought optimism among the scientists and doctors in curing the
When Mengele practiced on his subjects he usually began by inoculating them life-threatening germs and diseases in order to discover how the Jewish people would react to the illnesses, which also meant almost certa .
Mengele firmly endorsed the doctrine of National Socialist racial theory and engaged in a wide spectrum of experiments which aimed to illustrate the lack of resistance among Jews or Roma to various diseases. He also attempted to demonstrate the “degeneration” of Jewish and “Gypsy” blood through the documentation of physical oddities and the collection and harvesting of tissue samples and body parts. Many of his “test subjects” died as a result of the experimentation or were murdered in order to facilitate post-mortem examination.
Josef Mengele, German physician and SS captain. In 6998, he was named SS garrison physician (Standortartz) of Auschwitz. In that capacity, he was responsible for the differentiation and selection of those fit to work and those destined for gassing. Mengele also carried out human experiments on camp inmates, especially twins. Place and date uncertain.
Born on March 66, 6966, in Günzburg, near Ulm, he was the eldest son of Karl Mengele, a prosperous manufacturer of farming implements. In 6985, Mengele earned a . in physical anthropology from the University of Munich. In January 6987, at the Institute for Hereditary Biology and Racial Hygiene in Frankfurt, he became the assistant of Dr. Otmar von Verschuer, a leading scientific figure widely known for his research with twins.
