Doctor Mengele was a sinister man. He picked and prodded at Jews in the attempt to learn about human reproduction. His great goal of these experiments and research was to learn how to increase the birth rate of super humans. He studied twins, to learn how German mothers can produce two perfect babies at once. Also, eye colours were examined. It seems unnatural to have the urge to take apart these dead bodies and examine structures, and then with this information attempt to genetically create the perfect super human.
The Jews who entered the prison camps were often redesigned as new people. Families were torn apart, and people witnessed brutal beatings on one another. When the Jews entered the death camp, almost all people who got pass the separation process were male, and all of these men lost their families. Much hope was lost for those who were struggling to keep it together. When Elie’s father was struck by the Gypsy, not even Elie had the strength or courage to defend, or fight back for his father. At this point it was that Elie had realized that he had become a different person. The degrading done to these people made them change. What they would have done from this moment on would be completely different as to if this Gypsy had smacked the Jew before these Jew’s arrived at Auschwitz. Its amazing to hear this experience. I can understand how people were broken down, and its sad to see that this was happening to these people.
The Nazis benefited from murder by all jewellery, gold, and hair that the Jews had. Many families that lived in the Ghetto’s were able to hide their prized possessions, and had brought them to the concentration camps. Once they were directed into the gas chambers, their possessions were left behind to be left in Nazi control. After the process of killing the Jews, dentists would search the mouths, and take out any bridgework and gold fillings. On average there would be 8-10 kilos in gold. The hair, is also removed and serves as a fuse for bombs. Hair burns at the same pace wet or dry, so it is very reliable for time fused bombs.
What surprises me in this video is when he is talking about boarding the trains. He says when he was at the Czechoslovakia / Austrian borders, he was glad to be boarding the train cars. This amazes me, because after he even says that for wherever he went, the next place was worse than the last, always. I could compare this too me being abducted, and being transported one place to the next, and if this did happen, I would be terrified to go anywhere. The will and strength for the Jews to survive is incredible. They were overloaded with jobs, carrying cement bags 50kg, while being starved, and probably forced to work or else be shot.
This short excerpt explains the horrible medical experiments conducted by the Nazis.
The invention of “race science” is utterly disturbing. I never knew there were a handful of doctors that performed experiments to study the limitations of the human body. It is disgusting to think that these German doctors had curiosities that are very disturbing, like Mengeles attempt to create a Siamese twin, with twins. I now understand that these doctors, and the Germans that allowed these experimentations be allowed, do not treat these Jews as human beings. They are being degraded for ridiculous scientific research. I understand now that the holocaust was much worse than just executing Jews by the thousands, but also because they were being tortured beyond what my imagine could ever think possible.
