From 1933 through 1945, horrific medical "experiments" were inflicted upon innocent victims in the name of the advancement of Nazi Science. The Nazi doctors justified their acts of torture and inhumanity as attempts to improve German medecine. Few of these doctors collected scientifically useful data and many of the experiments were expressions of pure evil.
This web page details the most notorious of these doctors and their cohorts. Details of the Death Camps and the hideous "scientific" atrocities practiced there, as well as information about the 23 doctors tried for these crimes at Nuremberg and the punishments they received can be found in the links below.
Be warned. The descriptions on this web page of the horrors perpetrated by Nazi Scientists are graphic and uncensored.
