Besides studying the physical effects of cold exposure, the experimenters also assessed different methods of rewarming survivors. After subjects were frozen, they then underwent different methods for rewarming. Many subjects died in this process.
Prisoners were coerced into participating: Typically, the experiments resulted in death, disfigurement or permanent disability. At Auschwitz and other camps, under the direction of Dr. Eduard Wirths, selected inmates were subjected to various experiments which were supposedly designed to help German military personnel in combat situations, develop new weapons, aid in the recovery of military personnel that had been injured, and to advance the racial ideology backed by the Third Reich.
According to the indictment at the Subsequent Nuremberg Trials, these experiments included the following: Experiments on twins Experiments on twin children in concentration camps were created to show the similarities and differences in the genetics and eugenics of twins, as well as to see if the human body can be unnaturally manipulated.
The central leader of the experiments was Josef Mengele, who performed experiments on over 1, sets of imprisoned twins, of which fewer than individuals survived the studies. The twins were arranged by age and sex and kept in barracks between experiments, which ranged from injection of different chemicals into the eyes of twins to see whether it would change their colors to literally sewing twins together to try creating conjoined twins.
The subject is wearing a Luftwaffe garment. Inthe Luftwaffe conducted experiments to learn how to treat hypothermia. One study forced subjects to endure a tank of ice water for up to three hours. Another study placed prisoners naked in the open for several hours with temperatures below freezing.
The experimenters assessed different ways of rewarming survivors. The experiments were conducted on men to simulate the conditions the armies suffered on the Eastern Front, as the German forces were ill prepared for the bitter cold.
The experiments were conducted under the supervision of Dachau and Auschwitz. First, to establish how long it would take to lower the body temperature to death, and second how to best resuscitate the frozen victim. The icy vat method proved to be the fastest way to drop the body temperature.
|Nazi human experimentation - Wikipedia||Since the National Revolution public opinion has become increasingly preoccupied with questions of demographic policy and the continuing decline in the birthrate. However, it is not only the decline in population which is a cause for serious concern but equally the increasingly evident genetic composition of our people.|

The selections were made of young healthy Jews or Russians. They were usually stripped naked and prepared for the experiment. An insulated probe which measured the drop in the body temperature was inserted into the rectum.
The probe was held in place by an expandable metal ring which was adjusted to open inside the rectum to hold the probe firmly in place.
The victim was put into an air force uniform, then placed in the vat of cold water and started to freeze.
Malaria experiments From about February to about Aprilexperiments were conducted at the Dachau concentration camp in order to investigate immunization for treatment of malaria. Healthy inmates were infected by mosquitoes or by injections of extracts of the mucous glands of female mosquitoes.
After contracting the disease, the subjects were treated with various drugs to test their relative efficiency.Scientific Murder: Human Experimentation in Nazi Germany The Nazi's were infamous for their cruel and unusual experiments on humans. Although they played a small part of Nazi Germany's attempt at racial hygiene, these experiments desecrated and exterminated thousands of humans (Lifton ).
According to an article published in Kaltio, one of the main Finnish cultural magazines, Nazi Germany was the first state in the world to place the wolf under protection.
Nazi Germany "introduced the first legislation for the protection of wolves." In , Nazi Germany hosted an international conference on animal welfare in Berlin. Medical Experiments of the Holocaust and Nazi Medicine. Foreword. People must remember the Holocaust as a insult to humanity.
The lives lost were not only great in number, but offered so much to mankind. How the world would have been different if the millions of souls destroyed could have lived. Later these turned out to be the gas chambers of secret Nazi killing centres in Germany or Austria or — more often — the death camps of Auschwitz or Belsen.
During the Nuremberg Medical Trials, several of the Nazi doctors and scientists who were being tried for their human experiments cited past unethical studies performed in the United States in their defense, namely the Chicago malaria experiments conducted by Dr.
Joseph Goldberger. Nazi Germany had the strictest laws in Europe for the protection of animal rights. WORLD FUTURE FUND Cruelty to Animals #1 (1) It is forbidden to unnecessarily torment or roughly mishandle an animal.
