We can all agree that the things the Nazis did during World War II were horrible. The Holocaust was probably the crime for which they’re most infamous. But wretched and inhumane things happened in the concentration camps that most people don’t know about. Inmates were used as subjects in numerous experiments that were excruciatingly painful and usually resulted in death.
Over the course of three months in 1943 and 1944, experiments were conducted on inmates at Buchenwald concentration camp to test the effectiveness of pharmaceutical remedies on phosphorus burns inflicted by incendiary bombs.
Subjects were purposely burned with phosphorus matter from those bombs, which was severely painful. The inmates were seriously injured by these experiments.
