Josef Mangele

Born on March 16, 1911, in Günzburg, near Ulm, he was the oldest son of Karl Mengele, a excellent manufacturer of farming implements. In 1935, Mengele earned a Ph.D. in physical anthropology from the University of Munich. In January 1937, at the Institute for Hereditary Biology and Racial Hygiene in Frankfurt, he became the assistant of Dr. Otmar von Verschuer, a leading scientific figure widely known for his research with twins.

Twins

High-Altitude Experiments to investigate the limits of human endurance and existence at extremely high altitudes. The victims were placed in the low-pressure chamber and thereafter the simulated altitude therein was raised. Many victims died as a result of these experiments and others suffered grave injury, torture, and ill-treatment.

Some parents did announce their twins. Some relatives, friends, or neighbors would announce the twins. Some mothers tried to hide their twins. The SS and Mengele would search through the surging ranks of people in search of twins and anyone with unusual traits. While many twins were either announced or discovered, some sets of twins were successfully hidden and walked with their mother into the gas chamber.

Lasting impacts

Of course negative impacts are the numerous lives that were sacrificed under the whim of a man who had no mercy. To have been murdered in the gas chambers would have been bad but to have suffered under the hand of the “Angel of Death” would have been not have been easy to comprehend.
