The Nazi party was a small gathering for German politics which only received two percent of the national votes. When the worldwide economic depression took over Germany, a majority of people, families lost their jobs. And the government was not capable of diminishing the economic crisis, that was when the German party realized they were going to manipulate people and families, agreeing with their thoughts and lying to them. And with Adolf Hitler help, the Nazis gained trust, turning them into the political party that took over Germany.
Adolf Hitler was known to use his ideas and beliefs in his writing and speeches about racial purity and the idea of Aryan which he considered to be the pure race. These beliefs were spread in movies, classrooms, and posters. An obsession of the purity of Aryan, the government supported German scientist who believes in purifying the human race by eliminating the people who were considered inferior. German physicians sterilized ethnic minorities, mentally ill handicapped, born blind and deaf. Operations would also be made on women to make it impossible for them to have children. Jewish were viewed as religious groups and poisonous race.
Nazi teachers began to inform principles of Hitler’s Aryan beliefs. Measurements such as Nose length, eye color and hair were being done on students to figure out who belonged to Aryan race. While Jewish and Romani students would be sent to concentration camps.Prisoners would demand to wear color-coded triangles on their jackets in order for Germans to classify them. They would also be mistreated by Germans. Women, men, and children would be placed apart in concentration camps.
Romanis, women and children would be gassed to death in a camp called Gypsy family. Men who were dying from starvation,diseases,and brutal treatments would be sent to labor camps. Prisoners who were homosexual and Jehovah’s Witnesses, political wouldn’t be treated as jews but would be punished and sent to concentration camps.
During the second world war, the Nazis experimented on different techniques for drinking sea water. Prisoners were given very little portions of food and more seawater with chemicals. The results of these chemicals would make these victims become extremely dehydrated. After all, experiments were finished all victims were killed by Germans or died from dehydration. An experiment was organized by the Nazis to figure out the natural immunities in tuberculosis and any contagious disease. In order to develop a vaccination against tuberculosis, typhus, malaria, typhoid fever and yellow fever. Scientists sought to contradict the population believes that tuberculosis and these contagious diseases were infectious.
Victims would get injected live diseases bacilli into the lungs to immunize against tuberculosis and contagious diseases. In the camps of Sachsenhausen and Natzweiler phosgene and mustard gas were done to test the possibility of antidotes. In the Ravensbruck camp, the development of sulfa drugs was done also bone grafting experiments. The law was used to encourage the growth of Hitler’s believes the Aryan race. Thousands of victims were sterilized by various drugs, x rays, and surgeries. These experiments were called sterilization experiments. Citizens men between the age of seventeen and twenty-four would be victims of these sterilized experiments. A treatment called radiation became the favored choice to the scientist for this experiment.
Prisoners were placed in a room where the radiation treatment was tested. Many suffered radiation burns and others were completely sterilized. The immersion hypothermia project was an experiment where the subjects were immersed in a tank of ice water others in anesthetized and also conscious, many were naked but others were dressed. The purpose of this project was to establish effective treatment for victims of immersion hypothermia. They would use several different methods. Victims were thrown into boiling water to be rewarmed. Experiments on twin children in concentration camps were created to analyze the similarities and differences in the genetics of twins. In Order to view if the human bodies can be manipulated.
Josef Mengele who was the center leader of imprisoned twins experiments used five-year-old twins to examine them. Injections were created with lethal germs, sex change, and have organs and limbs removed. Mengele had the idea of creating a siamese twin. His thoughts were to connect blood vessels and organs. After victims were murdered Mengele would collect eyes in order to research eye pigmentation. According to research, twenty doctors had been charged with war crimes against humanity before the national military Nazi doctors were brought to justice. Doctors confess evidence of sadistic human experiments that were done in the Dauch and concentration camps.
Nazi doctors were convicted guilty of premeditated murder. This case helped Scientist and doctors discovered medical literature. The Scientists who studied and use the Nazi research were searching for the social responsibility and potential abuses of science.
In the result of the trial, the Nuremberg code was created restricting human experimentation. The doctors who were found guilty were sentenced to death.
