From Prensa Latina news agency:
Documentary about Nazi Experiments on Jews to be Presented in France
Paris, Apr 7. A documentary about the murder of 86 Jews in Nazi experiments during Word War II, will be presented on April 10th in that capital city.
“In the Name of Race and of Science, Strasbourg 1941-1944” relates how the mutilated corpses found in the basement of the Anatomy Institute of the Strasbourg University, were destined to leave a trace of Jewish people once they were exterminated.
Under the guidance of Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS and later Interior Ministry, those men and women who came from Auschwitz concentration camp in 1943, were murdered in gas chambers in France and sent to the Strasbourg university to be preserved in formol.
To avoid the brutal crime remaining unpunished in Europeans’ memory, the producer Temps Noir and the directors Sonia Rolley, Axel and Tancrede Ramonet decided to make the 55-minute documentary, which shows unknown images from archives.
“I found that story by accident in 2005, when I was a journalism student in Strasbourg”, said Rolley.
She said also that through that story, practically unknown, they could discover the entire criminal mechanism of the Nazis.
