The Doctors who worked in Auschwitz,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide (Paperback)
A very good and well written book which not only tells of The doctors who did the operations and experiments in Auschwitz but also gives and insight as to the power they had in the camp for instance they were the main parties who did the selections for people who lived, died and was experimented on. It also tells of the psychology of their thinking, how they turned from being good doctors into the murderers/torturers they became. By thinking the Jewish people were doomed anyway they considered these people as an abundance of guinea pigs to experiment on with unclean instruments and without anesthetic in many cases. They considered that they would never again have so many men, women and children at their mercy to experiment on so freely without question. After the experiments had come to an end they just sent these people to the gas chambers or injected them with phenol.
