The women were selected for this gruesome assignment by the senior camp doctor, Walter Sonntag. Pls let us know — look forward to your next book. Yes, I can read very comprehensively while doing this. Bogumila Babinska In 1943, Bogumila Jasuik and Krysia Czyz began sending invisible messages written in urine between the lines and in the margins of the censored letters to their families to inform them about the experiments and the unspeakable suffering in the camp. After one hop, we had to rest. The aim was to destroy evidence of what had happened there before the Allies arrived.

The evil of Herta Oberheuser

Now a new book in Germany called Perpetrators: Women Under National Socialism explodes the myth behind the propaganda. Gebhardt needed to demonstrate the ineffectiveness of sulfa for the treatment of battlefield wound infections. This book has been on my mind so very much since I read it, as did a good friend of mine and we have had many long talks about it. Mengele placed patients in isolation cages and subjected them to a variety of stimuli just to see their reactions. Oberheuser was also known to rub wood, rusty nails, slivers of glass or sawdust into German soldiers' wounds, attempting to simulate them. I cried, laughed, and yelled alongside all the characters, and it ended beautifully. And an intense history lesson.

Miraculously, another member of the infected group, Maria Marysha Kusmierczuk , not only survived the experiment but survived Ravensbrück itself, living to testify against Oberheuser and several of her colleagues at the Nuremberg Medical Trial in 1946—1947. I think part of my interest is in the mystery that so many people were convinced it was okay to treat other humans in such horrific ways. He made his career as a chemist for the Boehringer Ingelheim pharmaceutical company. It was a camp rule that helping another inmate was an offence. What injections did you give to these patients to minimise their suffering? Herta Oberheuser was sentenced to 20 years, but she too did not serve her sentence; she was released in April 1952 whereupon she practiced as a family physician until a survivor recognized her in 1956.

Nazi death camp for WOMEN's shocking medical experiments that injected prisoners with petrol and syphilis

If it was not for you, I would have never known of Caroline Ferriday and her courageous efforts to help these women or even the stories of the women at Ravensbruck. He would take special care to make sure that twins were killed at the same time. Later, the bones were joined with or without special clips and the legs placed in a plaster cast. Clauberg also repeatedly placed men and women between two x-ray machines for several minutes, resulting in radiation burns that made them either unfit for work and to be gassed or they would die from the burns. Oddly, when the first prisoners arrived at Ravensbruck, 55 miles north of Berlin, in May 1939, they broke into unexpected smiles. Her male counterparts in Düsseldorf earned fully four times that amount. Although your novel is considered fictional…the portrayal of the actual historical figures are exceptionally well done…and accurate.

Medical Experiments

It was he who sanctioned the use of the Pruegelstrafe, in which a prisoner was strapped over a wooden horse and given 25 lashes on the buttocks with an ox-whip. Then I noticed that both my legs were in iron splints and were bandaged from the toes to groin. All we can do is make sure it never happens again. In the 1932 elections in which Adolf Hitler ran for the presidency, Oberheuser and her parents voted for the Nazi Party. From there, she used all her circus skills to climb the electric fence, wrapping a blanket round the live wires.

Nazi women exposed as every bit as bad as Hitler's deranged male followers

It is not clear why he was released as early as 1951 and why his medical license reinstated. Twenty-tree German physicians and scientists were accused of performing vile and potentially lethal medical experiments on concentration camps inmates and other living human subjects between 1933 and 1945. She was released in April 1952 for good behaviour and became a family doctor at Stocksee in Germany, only to lose her position in 1956 after a Ravensbruck survivor recognised her. Despite attempts to isolate the camp, a few relatively privileged prisoners managed to maintain intermittent correspondence with family. I gave the garrison doctor the syringe and he drew up the liquid, and I do not know.

I look forward to reading your next work. The women in this book will always be with me. I know so many died and suffered but what an inspiration to see what the determination of a few individuals can do. Also I just wanted you to know, I have never reached out to an author before, but you have really blown me away with your book. Women could and did advance themselves massively through the Third Reich. Herta Oberheuser was the only female defendant in the medical trial. I am so glad I bought it.

She received a 20 year sentence but was released in April 1952 and became a family doctor at Stocksee in Germany. Ravensbruck had been built as nothing short of an enormous death machine where everything was designed to kill. And was there any evidence that she had homosexual tendencies? Recently in going through a box that was hidden away in our attic, I came across his war memorabilia— newspaper clippings, maps and troop reports describing movements of his division. At a time when specialized medical textbooks could cost as much as 70 reichsmarks, Oberheuser's monthly salary was 100 reichsmarks. Herta Oberheuser, in order to kill them, would inject oil and evipan into children's blood streams. They were worked to death, starved, beaten, hanged, shot, gassed, poisoned, even burnt alive in the crematorium.
