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.
As a part of the extermination of non-Aryans, Nazis doctors conducted mass sterilization experiments on inmates at different concentration camps to find the method that took the least time and money.
In one series of experiments, a chemical irritant was introduced into the female reproductive organs to block the fallopian tubes. Some women died from the procedure. Others were killed so that autopsies could be performed.
In another set of experiments, inmates were exposed to intense X-rays that caused severe burns on their stomachs, groins, and buttocks. They were also left with untreatable sores. Some subjects died.
