Eva Mozes Kor and her identical twin, Miriam Mozes, survived the deadly genetic experiments conducted by The Angel of Death , Josef Mengele, in the deathcamp Auschwitz during Their parents, grandparents, two older sisters, uncles, aunts and cousins were killed.. Mengele did a number of medical experiments of unspeakable horror at Auschwitz, using twins. These twins as young as five and six years of age were usually murdered after the experiment was over and their bodies dissected. A smiling "uncle Mengele" injected chemicals into the eyes of children in an attempt to change their eye color. He made experimental surgeries performed without anesthesia, transfusions of blood from one twin to another, isolation endurance, reaction to various stimuli. He made injections with lethal germs, sex change operations, the removal of organs and limbs.
Nazi human experimentation

Twin studies were conducted by Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. Josef Mengele had a strange fascination with twins, and spent his entire time at Auschwitz studying the twins. Often times his findings or his experiments had very little justification and were conducted solely for Mengele's pleasure. Mengele would systematically document measurements of the twins, often comparing them.
Why the Nazis Were Obsessed With Twins
One of the most atrocious eras in human history is without a doubt the Holocaust. About 11 million people, including approximately 6 million Jews, are estimated to have been slaughtered at the hands of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party. Jews were forced to live in ghettos and then rounded up to be sent to concentration and extermination camps, where they were herded into gas chambers and killed. At a number of concentration camps, Nazi doctors conducted gruesome and horrific medical experiments on prisoners against their will. This leads us to one of the most infamous Nazi doctors who ever lived, Dr.
Some German women successfully gave birth and had their babies taken away for adoption. Jewish women had theirs ripped away and murdered in front of them. These actions were all part of the Nazi agenda to create a master race, but until Chalmers set about writing this book, no single work had thoroughly examined and comprehensively consolidated evidence of this aspect of the Holocaust. More than a decade of non-stop and singularly focused research on the subject took an emotional toll on Chalmers , a year-old expert on pregnancy and birth in difficult social, political, economic and religious settings.
