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.
Experiments were conducted at Buchenwald concentration camp to determine the effects of poisons on human beings. In 1943, poisons were secretly administered to the inmates.
Some died directly due to the poisoned food. Others were killed for the sake of the autopsies. A year later, inmates were shot with poison-laced bullets for faster data collection. These subjects suffered tremendously.
