Mengele would often experiment on these people while they were still alive which inflicted a lot of pain on his victims. When he was finished with them he would simply kill them, disect them, and keep their organs for future testing.Rudolf Hoess-Mainly experimented with killing people through the use of poisonous gases. With his perfection of Zykon B. the Nazis were able to kill people at extreme rates instead of the sulfuric acid that was used before. Mengele even admitted to killing people with the gas himself because it gave him a sense of relief.Herta Oberheuser-Was considered so brutal people would often kill themself just so she could not experiment on them. Herta would often burn people with hot lamps and rub harsh objects into people wounds to see the effect it had on the victim.
