Nazi research experiments

Scientific Competence of the Nazi Doctors The debate over the scientific validity of the Nazi experiments must include the scientific and medical competence of the Nazi doctors.

He gives the example of a patient in the infirmary who was sent to the gas chambers by Dr. He did not then, nor does he now, possess the necessary expertise demanded in a specialist TB diseases.

Sun Lamp The victims were placed under sun lamps which were so hot they would burn the skin. Similar information could have been taken from other sources, like animal experiments and medical records of workers accidentally exposed to the gas.

Thousands of victims were sterilized. Shirer felt that the Nazi Doctors were generally murderous "quacks," and were people of the "lowest medical standard. They justified their acts by saying that the prisoners were condemned to death anyway. In all of the experiments, the prisoners were forced to become subjects against their will.

According to his own admission, Heissmeyer was not concerned about curing the prisoners who were put at his disposal.

Policy Considerations Regarding Scientific Use of Morally Tainted Data Absolute Censorship and it Deterrent Effect One might argue that since footnotes are among the few rewards scientists get for their research and that citation or use of the Nazi data would constitute a scientific recognition of the Nazi doctors, sanctions against the citation of Nazi data would deter the doctors from abusive practices.

Using two doctors, each twin was simultaneously given an injection in the heart, taking their lives. The selections were made of young healthy Jews or Russians.

One young homosexual victim was repeatedly cooled to unconsciousness then revived with lamps until he was pouring sweat. Those experiments revealed nothing which civilized medicine can use. It seems unattached to the tortured or their pain.

Such an important conclusion could only be made by a completely righteous individual such as King Hezekiah. The potential to save lives from use of the study of the brains seems as tenuous as the Nazi data.

Finally, the fact that the Nazi experiments were not officially published nor replicated raises doubts about the data's scientific accuracy. Scientific Validity Nazi Concentration Camp science is often branded as bad science.

Doctor Heissmeyer claimed that only an "exhaustive" organism was receptive to such infection, most of all the racially "inferior organism of the Jews. Karl Brandt et al. I'm trying to make something constructive out of it. They were later investigated by the Gestapo and executed for the crime.

This hypothetical provides us with the perfect scenario in which life can actually emerge from death, and good can emerge from evil. Beecher said that even though suppression of the data would constitute a loss to medicine in a specific localized sense: But would use of the Nazi data necessarily imply both results?

Europe's embarrassing amnesia of the Nazi atrocities enabled the unrepentant Clauberg upon his release form a Russian jailto list on his professional business card his position at Auschwitz.

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.

King Hezekiah hid the Book of Cures because people were cured so quickly and effortlessly that illness failed to promote a feeling of contrition, humility and recognition that God is the true healer of the sick. This causes fluid build up, and can lead to death by "drowning. Many suffered severe radiation burns.

Imagine the extreme feeling of discomfort, and the mortified look of horror upon discovering that one just showered with the remains of murdered Jews. Seidelman, a professor from the University of Toronto, in collaboration with Dr. Doctor Von Verschuer was the mentor, inspiration and sponsor of Mengele.IT is widely recognized that the experiments performed on prisoners in German concentration camps during the Second World War were in fact brutal crimes committed under the guise of medical research.

Nazi human experimentation was a series of controversial medical experiments on large numbers of prisoners by the German Nazi regime in its concentration camps during World War II.

Prisoners were coerced into participating: they did not willingly volunteer and there was never informed consent.

Nazi human experimentation

The Nazi experiments fell into three basic categories: (1) Medico-Military Research; (2) Miscellaneous, Ad Hoc Experiments; and, (3) Racially Motivated Experiments. Medico-Military Research. Hitler's regime sponsored a series of inhumane experiments for alleged ideological, military and medical purposes.

Experiments to advance Nazi racial and ideological goals A third category of medical experimentation sought to advance the racial and ideological tenets of the Nazi worldview. The most infamous were the experiments of Josef Mengele on twins of all ages at Auschwitz.

Nazi medical experiments fell into three broad categories: trauma research with military applications; pharmaceutical and surgical research; and long-term impact research aimed at validating pseudoscientific Nazi race theory. IT is widely recognized that the experiments performed on prisoners in German concentration camps during the Second World War were in fact brutal crimes committed under the guise of medical research.

There is controversy, however, about the use of the results obtained from those studies.
