Nazi persecution, arrests, and deportations were directed against all members of Jewish families, as well as many Gypsy families, without concern for age. Homeless, often orphaned, many children had frequently witnessed the murder of parents, siblings, and relatives.
They faced starvation, illness, brutal labor, and other indignities until they were consigned to the gas chambers. At Auschwitz Josef Mengele did a number of twin studies. At death camps like Auschwitz children did not fare well: Children born in the camps were generally killed on the spot, especially if the child was Jewish.
So called camp doctors, especially the notorious Josef Mengele, would torture Jewish children, Gypsy children and many others. Josef was refined, intelligent and popular in his town. He studied philosophy at Munich and medicine at Frankfurt University. In his dissertation dealt with racial differences in the structure of the lower jaw. In he joined the Nazi party, then in he went to the SS. In he was wounded at the Russian front and was pronounced unfit for duty.
After that he volunteered to go to the concentration camp, he was sent to the death camp, Auschwitz. Mengele was always immaculately prepared for the long-drawn-out rituals of death, the hellish selections which the young SS doctor so regularly attended during his twenty-one months at Auschwitz.
Josef Mengele was the chief provider for the gas chambers and their crematoria. When it was reported that one block was infected with lice, Mengele solved the problem by gassing all the women assigned to it.
At the time, Mengele was only 32 years old. The Angel of Death fed his legend by dramatizing murderous policies, such as his drawing a line on the wall of the children’s block between and centimeters about 5 feet or 5 feet 2 inches from the floor. Then sending those whose heads could not reach the line to the gas chamber The memory of this slightly built man, scarcely a hair out of place, his dark green tunic neatly pressed, his face well scrubbed, his Death’s Head SS cap tilted rakishly to one side, remains vivid for those who survived his scrutiny when they arrived at the Auschwitz railhead.
Polished boots slightly apart, his thumb resting on his pistol belt, he surveyed his prey with those dead gimlet eyes. Death to the left, life to the right. Four hundred thousand souls – babies, small children, young girls, mothers, fathers, and grandparents – are said to have been casually waved to the lefthand side with a flick of the cane clasped in a gloved hand. In another case in which a mother did not want to be separated from her thirteen-year-old daughter, and bit and scratched the face of the SS man who tried to force her to her assigned line, Mengele drew his gun and shot both the woman and the child.
As a blanket punishment, he then sent to the gas all people from that transport who had previously been selected for work, with the comment: There were moments when his death mask gave way to a more animated expression, when Mengele came alive. There was excitement in his eyes, a tender touch in his hands. This was the moment when Josef Mengele, the geneticist, found a pair of twins. Mengele was almost fanatical about drawing blood from twins, mostly identical twins.
He is reported to have bled some to death this way. Once Mengele’s assistant rounded up 14 pairs of Gypsy twins during the night. Mengele placed them on his polished marble dissection table and put them to sleep.
He then proceeded to inject chloroform into their hearts, killing them instantaneously. Mengele then began dissecting and meticulously noting each and every piece of the twins’ bodies. At Auschwitz Mengele did a number of twin studies, and these twins were usually murdered after the experiment was over and their bodies dissected.
He supervised an operation by which two Gypsy children were sewn together to create Siamses twins; the hands of the children became badly infected where the veins had been resected. Mengele injected chemicals into the eyes of children in an attempt to change their eye color. Unfortunately a strict veil of secrecy over the experiments enabled Mengele to do his work more effectively. The full extent of his gruesome work will never be known soktor the records he sent to Dr.
Von Verschuer at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute were shipped out in two truckloads and destroyed by the latter. Twins undergoing his experiments didn’t know what the objectives were.
Josef Mengele, Angel of Death
It is known that he had a special pathology lab where he performed autopsies on twins who had died from experiments. It was located next to the cremetorium. Any remaining notes Mengele carried with him on his escape to South America and those were never found.
Some forty years after the war, only a few of these twins could be found, many living in Israel and the United States. Strangely enough, many of them recall Mengele as a gentle, affable man who befriended them as children and gave them chocolates. Since many had immediately been separated from their families upon entering the camp, Mengele became a sort of father figure.
Still a tension existed, that at any time they could be killed if they did not keep a low profile. Older twins recognized his kindness as a deception The horrors of the Holocaust. Mengele performed both physical and psychological experiments, experimental surgeries performed without anesthesia, transfusions of blood from one twin to another, isolation endurance, reaction to various stimuli. He made injections with lethal germs, sex change operations, the removal of organs and limbs, incestuous impregnations.
The book Children of the Flames by Joe E. White chronicles the notorious medical experimental activities of Josef Mengele on approximately three thousand twins who passed through the Auschwitz death camp during WWII until its liberation at the end of the war.
The twins, Bernard and Simon Zajdner, born Dec. They were victims of Josef Mengele’s inhuman “medical experiments.
Their parents, grandparents, two older sisters, uncles, aunts and cousins were killed in the Holocaust. After the liberation of the camp, Eva and Miriam were the first two twins in the famous film taken jengele the Soviets – often shown in footage about the horrors of Holocaust. Likewise at Auschwitz Dr.
Herta Oberhauser killed children with oil and evipan injections, removed their limbs and vital organs, rubbed ground glass and sawdust into wounds. She drew a twenty-year sentence as a war criminal, but was released in and became a family doctor at Stocksee auschwihz Germany.
Her license to practice medicine was revoked in Near the end of the war, in order to cut expenses and save gas, “cost- accountant considerations” led to an order to place living children directly into the ovens or throw them into open burning pits. Holocaust Memorial Museum full statistics for the tragic fate of children who died during the Holocaust will never be known.
Some estimates range as high as 1. This figure includes more than 1. Josef Mengele left Auschwitz disguised as a member of the regular German infantry. He turned up at the Gross-Rosen work camp and left well before it was liberated on February 11, He was released by the allies, who had no idea that he was in their midst.
Mengele – the Angel of Death. By the fall of mengeke, Mengele had made up his mind to leave Germany and build a life elsewhere. Argentina was the preferred choice of sanctuary. There was a groundswell of Nazi sympathy in Argentina.

And his father, Karl Sr. Mengele gave an Italian residency document with a false name and permission to enter Argentina. He received his passport in So Mengele fled to South America, but moved from country to country afraid of being caught There were many warrants, rewards, and bounties offered, but he was lucky.
Despite international efforts to track him down, he was never apprehended and lived for 35 years hiding under various aliases. He lived in Paraguay and Brazil until his death in One afternoon, living in Brazil, he went for a swim. While in the ocean he suffered a massive stroke and began to drown.
By the time he was dragged to shore, he was dead. People didn’t find out about Mengele’s death until the mid ‘s when Nazi hunters, using newly discovered information, uncovered his josed marked “Wolfgang Gerhard” at Embu.
It was then that his family admitted they had shielded him all those years and they turned over his diaries and letters to investigators. But the possibility of a hoax kept the case open for several years. It was not untilafter coaxing DNA from a bone, and matching it to DNA in blood samples taken from Mengele’s son and wife that the official conclusion is announced: The mystery of Josef Mengele, the evil symbol of the Nazi’s, was solved.
