German brutality: NAZI medical experiments at Auschwitz

The book Nazi Medicine: Doctors, Victims and Medicine in Auschwitz by Howard Fertig explores the role of medicine and those affected by it in the Auschwitz concentration camp. The book is divided up into three parts: the experiments, the doctor’s stories, and the camps after the end of the war.

A quick biography on Dr. Helmuth Vetter tells that he was born on February 21, 1910 in Rastenburg, Turingen. He was camp physician in Auschwitz and was also an agent of the “Bayer” firm from the Hochst-Leverkusen laboratories. While in Auschwitz he conducted experiments in block 20 [the contagious diseases ward] from 1942 - 1944. More specifically he conducted research on Preparation 3582, Ruthenol and Periston for experimental purposes regarding typhus, typhoid fever, paratyphoid diseases, diarrhea, tuberculosis of the lungs, erysipelas, and scarlet fever.


This six-part BBC documentary series, aired Stateside on PBS stations, delves into the terrifying history of Auschwitz, the largest of the concentration camps created by the Nazis during World War II for implementation of the "Final Solution" -- the extermination of millions of Jews -- from 1940-45. Using archival footage, dramatic reenactments, and computer-generated imagery, the series recounts the ominous beginnings of Hitler's rise to power, the formation of his Third Reich, and the overwhelming hatred for specific groups of people that led to the eventual murder of over 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, as well as Gypsies, homosexuals, political prisoners, and the handicapped. Writer-producer Laurence Rees and his team interviewed more than 100 survivors and eyewitnesses, including former Nazi perpetrators who speak on record for the first time. Narrated by actress Linda Hunt, this exhaustive examination of Auschwitz also includes a series of six follow-up discussions with scholars and historians hosted by journalist Linda Ellerbee, and an interview with Rees.

On August 23rd 1942, 330,000 men of the German 6th Army smashed through Soviet defenses outside the city of Stalingrad. For 162 terrible days the Soviet defenders of Stalingrad make the Germans pay in blood with savage hand to hand combat in a maze of ruined factories, shops and apartment blocks. Outnumbered and outgunned the Red Army suffer appalling losses, but by clinging to their positions they draw the Germans into a trap from which there will be no escape. For the first time, extraordinary aerial reconnaissance photographs actually taken during the course of the battle are combined with the latest in computer technology to create a 3D model of the city. With archive film, dramatic re-enactments and powerful eye witness testimony, we tell the incredible story of the epic battle that turned the entire course of WWII.
