Experiments Main article: Nazi medical experimentation at Auschwitz Children eventually released by the Red Army. Some children were kept alive, especially the twins, to participate in the experiment of Mengele. The twins were of particular interest to Mengele. The interest lay in the profound influences instilled by Otmar von Verschuer and Ferdinand Sauerbruch Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Genetics and Eugenics, where he acquired the concepts of pure-bred heritage and the Jewish problem was the core of the discussions. Mengele, in the footsteps of von Verschuer had developed a strong interest in twins as a source of information about these pseudo-scientific concepts, therefore, when he knew that Auschwitz was their destination, could not hide his satisfaction, because the field concentration was for him a lab full of rats Jewish. Since 1943, the twins were selected and placed in special barracks.Where the selection ramp located twins, for they constituted a longer life expectancy belonging to that condition. The twins were placed in a special area and were treated better than other prisoners. Almost all of Mengele’s experiments had no scientific value, but were funded by the Nazi government. Included, for example, attempts to change eye color by injecting chemicals into children’s eyes, various amputations and other brutal surgeries, and documented at least once, an attempt to create artificially conjoined twins by joining veins of twin brothers (the operation was a failure and the only result was that the hands of children severely infected). People to Mengele’s experiments, should survive the experiment, were almost always killed to further dissection.Mengele drew the eyes of his victims and placed on a wall as a display of varieties heterochromic existed. He also tried to chemically change the hair color of inmates by applying painful subcutaneous injections and in some cases performed castrations and experiments on the spinal cord paralyzed leaving the surgery. In cooperation with other physicians, Mengele also tried to find a method of mass sterilization, many of the victims were women who were injected with different substances, many of them succumbing sterile or staying in many other cases. On other occasions, carried out experiments by immersing inmates in freezing water to see strong reactions to hypothermia. It also cooperated with their counterparts of aviation, the doctor Sigmund Rascher of the Luftwaffe, in some experiments by subjecting individuals to extreme pressure changes. Individuals perished in the midst of horrific seizures excessive intracranial pressure.Rascher was the equivalent of Mengele in the field of human experimentation, but for military purposes. His wickedness went hand in hand with the latter, but his story and final results were different. Mengele also conducted experiments on Gypsies and Jews who had deformities, herary diseases (dwarfism, Down syndrome), and even Siamese twins, dissecting live and then immersing their bodies in a tub with a liquid consumed meat, bones freeing . The skeletons were sent to Berlin as a macabre display of physical degeneration of the Jews.Another of his lines of “research” was the ethno-specific virus. Cinergy Health Mengele came to have a particular collection of specially chosen sentenced to serve in his essays, his treatment was no better than those facing cameras gas. In 1944, Mengele wanted a change, but was proud of his experiments, tried to climb through the ranks of the Waffen SS getting evaluated by an inspector. The report issued by an SS colonel stressed personality, professionalism and devotion of duty of Mengele, who gave him a promotion and merit a new post. However, for unknown reasons, was never reassigned from Auschwitz. Mengele was once a railroad car loaded with crates noted that the inmates “too heavy for their size.” The boxes were addressed to some inmates G nzburg and deduced – correctly – that the boxes containing gold bullion, from dental extractions camp victims.This was one of the first indications that Mengele had sensed the end of Nazi Germany.
