‘The Angel of Death “of the Auschwitz

Now, many are asking is not whether a simple sadist Josef Mengele, who, in addition to the scientific work, pleasure to watch the suffering of the people. Those who worked with him, told me that Mengele, to the surprise of many of his colleagues, he did sometimes lethal injection guinea, beat them and threw into the chamber of the capsule with a deadly gas, watching the prisoners die.

On the territory of the Auschwitz concentration camp has a large pond, where dumped unclaimed ashes of prisoners burned in the crematorium ovens. The rest of the ashes of exported cars to Germany, where it was used as a fertilizer for the soil. In these cars drove new prisoners to Auschwitz, which met on arrival and personally highest smiling young man, who just turned 32 years. It was a new Auschwitz doctor Josef Mengele. after being wounded declared unfit for service in the army. He appeared with his entourage before the newcomers prisoners to select ‘stuff’ for their horrific experiences. The prisoners were stripped naked and lined up along which was Mengele, and then pointing to the right people your same stack. He decides who immediately sent to the gas chamber, but who can still work for the benefit of the Third Reich. Death – left life – right. Sickly-looking people, the elderly, women with babies – they Mengele, as a rule, sent to left careless gesture was holding a stack.

Former prisoners when they first arrived at the station to go to a concentration camp, Mengele was remembered as a smart, well-groomed man with a kind smile, well-fitted and ironed dark green jacket and cap worn by a little to one side; black boots polished to a perfect shine. One of the women prisoners of Auschwitz Christine Zhivulskaya write later: ‘It was like a movie star – a sleek, pleasant face with regular features. Tall, slender. ‘

For his pleasant smile and suave manner that did not jibe with his inhuman experiments, Mengele called prisoners ‘Angel of Death’. He carried out his experiments on human beings in the block #10. ‘No one has ever come out of there alive “- says a former prisoner Igor Fedorovich Malitsky caught in Auschwitz at the age of 16 years.

The activity at Auschwitz began with the young doctor that stopped the epidemic typhus, which is found in several Roma. To the disease has not spread to other prisoners, he sent all the barracks (over a thousand) to the gas chamber. Later fever showed up in the women’s barracks, and this time also went to death the whole barrack – about 600 women. How different fight typhus in such circumstances, Mengele could not come up.

Before the war Josef Mengele studied medicine and even defended his thesis on “Racial differences in the structure of the lower jaw ‘in 1935, and later received his doctorate. Of particular interest to him it was represented by genetics, but in Auschwitz the greatest degree of interest he showed to the twins. He experimented, without resorting to anesthetics, and dissected alive babies. He tried to sew twins to change their eye color by chemical agents; He tore his teeth, implanting them and build new ones. Parallel to this was being developed substances which can cause infertility; He castrated boys and sterilized women. According to some reports, he was able with the help of X-rays to sterilize the whole group of nuns.

The interest to Mengele twins was not accidental. The Third Reich has set scientists the task of increasing the birth rate, resulting in an artificial increase in the birth of triplets and twins became the main task of scientists. However, the offspring of the Aryan race had to be sure to blond hair and blue eyes – hence the attempts to change the Mengele children eye color through various chemicals. After the war, he was going to become a professor and for the sake of science was ready for anything.

Gemini carefully measured assistants ‘Angel of Death’ to fix the common features and differences, and then in the course of the experiments of the doctor entered. Babies amputated limbs and transplanted various organs were infected with typhoid fever, and blood transfusions. Mengele like track as identical twins organisms will respond to the same interference therein. Then experimental sacrificed, after which the doctor conducted a thorough analysis of the bodies, examining internal organs.

He turned quite violent activity, and therefore many people mistakenly thought he was the chief physician of the concentration camp. In fact, Josef Mengele held the post of senior doctor female barracks, on which it has appointed Eduard Wirths – chief doctor of Auschwitz, he described later Mengele, as a responsible employee who sacrificed personal time to dedicate to his self-education, exploring the material, which is located a concentration camp.

Mengele and his colleagues believed that hungry children have a very pure blood, which means that it can help a wounded German soldiers who are in hospitals. This recalled another former prisoner of Auschwitz Ivan Chuprin. Newcomers very young children, the eldest of which was for 5-6 years, driven in block numbered 19, of which for a while came the screams and cries, but soon fell silent. The blood of the young prisoners pumped completely. In the evening, returning from work the prisoners saw the heaps of children’s bodies, which later burned in pits dug, from which flames burst up to a few meters.

To work in a concentration camp Mengele was sort of a scientific mission, and the experience, which he put on prisoners, committed, in his view, for the benefit of science. About Dr. “Death” telling a lot of tall tales and one of them – that his office ‘decorated’ children’s eyes. In fact, as he recalled one of the doctors who worked with Mengele at Auschwitz, he could stand for hours near a series of tubes, considering the submissions received under a microscope, or spend time anatomical table, exposing the body to apron dipped in blood. He considered himself a true scientist, whose goal was more than the eye, hung around the office.

Doctors working with Mengele, noted that hated my job and to somehow relieve stress, drunk three sheets after rabocheg

of the day, what could be said about the doctor ‘Death’. It seemed that his work did not tire.

Now, many are asking is not whether a simple sadist Josef Mengele, who, in addition to the scientific work, pleasure to watch the suffering of the people. Those who worked with him, told me that Mengele, to the surprise of many of his colleagues, he did sometimes lethal injection guinea, beat them and threw into the chamber of the capsule with a deadly gas, watching the prisoners die.

Once the war Josef Mengele was declared a war criminal, but he managed to escape. He spent the rest of his life in Brazil, and February 7, 1979 was his last day – while swimming, he suffered a stroke and was drowned. His tomb found only in 1985, and after the exhumation in 1992, finally convinced that this tomb lies precisely Josef Mengele. He earned a reputation as one of the most terrible and dangerous Nazis.
