5 Most Evil Nazi Human Experiments

28 June 2015

Nazi human experimentation or nazi medical experiments was a series of medical experiments on large numbers of prisoners (including children), largely Jews from across Europe, but also Romani, Sinti, ethnic Poles, Soviet POWs and disabled Germans, by Nazi Germany in its concentration camps mainly in the early 1940s, during World War II and the Holocaust.

During World War II, a number of German physicians conducted painful and often deadly experiments on thousands of concentration camp prisoners without their consent.

Prisoners were forced into participating; they did not willingly volunteer and no consent was given for the procedures. Typically, the experiments resulted in death, trauma, disfigurement or permanent disability, and as such are considered as examples of medical torture.

After the war, these crimes were tried at what became known as the Doctors’ Trial, and revulsion at the abuses perpetrated led to the development of the Nuremberg Code of medical ethics.

Now, from Hitler’s Third Reich to the time after it.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Drugs tested on healthy German orphans

Today, 14:16

In German orphanages widespread drug trials were conducted on children. Research has shown that hundreds, perhaps thousands of orphans have been administered drugs while they were not sick.

The tests took place from 1950 to 1975 in orphanages in the states of Schleswig-Holstein and North Rhine-Westphalia.

So, in what was then the German Federal Republic (West Germany). Maybe in West German state Bremen as well. See also here.

It is mainly about vaccines and psychotropic drugs which at that time really only were prescribed to mentally severely ill patients. Researcher Sylvia Wagner in pharmaceutical journals of that time found evidence for at least 50 of such experiments.

Smallpox vaccine

It these journals was written openly about drugs that were given to the children. “A realization that what they did was wrong, seems not to have existed,” says Wagner.

In an orphanage in Düsseldorf for example, a smallpox vaccine was tested in 1954 on at least 50 children who were younger than 2 years. After the test, the children got painful bone marrow aspirates to see what the vaccine had done. The vaccine was found to have damaged their bone marrow severely.

There was also the Dipiperon medication in a psychiatric hospital in the form of juice for at least thirty children.

That Dipiperon was made and supplied by the Janssen corporation.

According to Wagner these surely were experiments, not treatment. “That on such a large scale children suffered from such serious illnesses that they needed these drugs is unlikely.”

How many victims there are exactly is unclear. Many of the children do not know they have been guinea pigs. The German broadcaster WDR spoke with a victim who remembers the experiments. He still suffers from them and takes antidepressants.

He had then realized that something was amiss. “The first time you swallow the pill just like that, but then, if you find that it is not good for you, you, as a child, revolt. You try to refuse, but that really was not an option.”

It turned out in Ms Wagner’s research that the doctors in these post-1950 experiments in the ‘democratic’ German Federal Republic had often been nazi party members during Hitler’s rule and had committed crimes against humanity then. According to Ms Wagner, p. 28, part of the money for the experiments came from the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung. Fritz Thyssen had been one of the first Big Businessmen to finance Hitler, already in 1923. When in 1945, Hitler’s Third Reich was almost finished, a scion of the Thyssen dynasty was hostess to an ‘entertaining’ massacre of Jews.

Sylvia Wagner writes (her summary, pp. 46-47):

Summary

In the years from 1950 to about 1975, beside the medicine study in the Neu-Düsselthal orphanage, which according to the final report of the RTH was the only known experiment so far, there were on a much larger scale experiments on German children and adolescents in homes in the Federal Republic of Germany. Eg, vaccines, psychopharmaceuticals and libido inhibiting drugs were tested.

To some extent, government agencies and institutions were at least by their knowledge of the experiments, by their consent (eg, polio vaccination in West Berlin in 1960, chlorprothixene in Neu-Düsselthal in 1966) and in one case even by commissioning by the Federal Health Authority (smallpox vaccination 1954) co-responsible for the experiments. In addition, often the responsible doctors and officials used to be high level Nazi officials. …

With the orphanage children who, as inmates of a “total institution”, had no possibility to represent themselves, or have themselves represented, to the outside world, a “vulnerable” group was added to the experiments. This chapter of the history of the orphanages is another act of violence against children living there, which has so far not received attention and opens up a new perspective on the theme.

  1. It’s straight out of a horror movie: hundreds of pregnant horses hooked up to blood-draining machines, some so weak they collapse and die. But we can stop this right now.

    The industrial horse torture is driven by European pharmaceutical companies who use the blood to speed up factory farming! The EU has said it’s considering action, but so far nothing has happened.

    No more horses need to die! Ministers are meeting in just 2 weeks — let’s light a fire under the EU with a massive million person petition demanding they ban the abusive pregnant horse blood trade. Add your name now, then share this with everyone — let’s make our call massive!

    Death is far from the only horror: so much blood is taken that it can lead to shock and anaemia. And because only the blood of pregnant horses is valuable, they’re often forced into repeat pregnancies and abortions.

    Demand is driven by pharmaceutical companies who sell the hormone found in pregnant horse blood to factory farmers to get pigs and other animals in “heat” on demand — another layer of abuse in this sorry story.

    If we shed a light on this horror by raising a massive global outcry now, we can help get a ban of all products made from the suffering of animals — making it difficult for companies to make big profits from this disturbing industry. Add your name then forward this to friends and family — let’s build pressure on the EU to act!

    Horses are full of beauty, grace and majesty — it’s hard to understand how people could be so cruel. But when we come together in massive numbers to protect animals from the horrors they face every day, we can do incredible things. Let’s do it now for these horses who need us to be their voice more than ever.

    With hope,
