In Hitler’s death camp and in the name of the German race superiority ideology, some doctors plunged deep into horror: tests on human subjects, barbaric methods, emasculations. How do men who were originally meant to heal people went this far? What’s the responsibility of the higher German medical bodies and pharmaceutical laboratories in those researches? Did they really allow, as some of them claimed, to make any progress in science? And even if it was the case, are we allowed to do everything in the name of science? How could these crimes be for the most part unpunished?

The story of the Nazi medical crimes.
