Medical Experiments of the Holocaust by Dion Williams The topic of my paper was deals with the Medical Experiment of the Holocaust and the doctors who committed these heinous crimes.
The purpose of my paper was to discuss in detail the procedures the doctors underwent to advance medicine, while inflicting pain upon their victims who were usually Jews or other ethnic groups despised by the Nazis.
I believe that these doctors betrayed and corrupted the definition of what a doctor really is and whose deeds were nothing less than evil.
From the beginning of time, or at least the 20th century, doctors and medicine have been placed upon a pedestal and widely admired.
The victim was then placed in the vat of cold water and the victim would start to freeze.
The victim would usually die when the body dropped to 25 degrees C.Adults wish for their little children to grow up to be doctors one day, even though the child may have something else in mind.Why we have such a fascination with doctors probably stems from many reasons.These were the doctors of the Holocaust and who at concentration camps at Auschwitz and dacha committed crimes that are still unimaginable, even though we have seen the proof with our own eyes.Several of the seventy or more medical-research projects conducted by the Nazis between the fall of 1939 and spring of 1945 were conducted at Auschwitz (“Auschwitz Medical Experimentation”).The freezing/hypothermia experiments were conducted for the Nazi high command (“Education/A Legacy Forum”) The freezing experiments, were divided into two parts, first to see how long it would take to lower the body temperature, and then how best Dachua resuscitate a frozen victim (“Education A Legacy Forum”).The way the doctors would go about doing this would be to put a person in a icy vat of water or outside naked in sub zero temperatures.But probably the main reason is that they have always been linked to the solution to our greatest fears, Pain and Death.Throughout history doctors have produced many great wonders and cured many diseases that at one time were considered deadly, but now can be treated with little or no pain.Well over two hundred doctors were involved in the operation of concentration camps, conduction’ Selektionen’ medical services, and research (“Auschwitz Medical Experimentation”).These experiments were done on humans held against their own will, because the victims were thought to be lower than rats in the minds of the Germans.
