Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Nazi Sterilization Experiments These "experiments" began during the Holocaust when Nazi doctors aimed to develop mass-sterilization tactics to further the Nazi regime of a perfect, pure society devoid of flaw. They chose this group of people because which consisted of Jews, disabled people, romanis, gypsies, gays, and the mentally ill because theywere all undesirable members of society that the Nazis wanted to eradicate anyway so they why not do experiments on them as a quick and easy way to wipe out millions were going to kill their subjects anyway so they wanted to at least make use of them. This concept is called the Final Solution--” the idea that Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, the disabled, and more, must be incarcerated and annihilated. Part of this plan involved doctors researching ways to contribute to the annihilation of those deemed racially inferior. This included performing experiments on people without their consent, causing the to endureexcruciating pain, mental trauma, permanent disability, and death. Auschwitz and Ravensbruck were concentration camps during the holocaust that carried out criminal medical experiments that violated every aspect of medical ethicsRavensbruck was the largest female-only concentration camp. Dr. Carl Clauberg went down in history as a medical criminal for his sterilization experiments Clauberg conducted experiments on the first floor of the building and hundreds of Jewish women were cramped together on the second floor above. These "doctors" conducted experiments using chemicals, radiation, animal sperm, and more. Subjects exposed to chemicals were subject to severe inflammation of the fallopian tubes and uterus. After having chemicals forced into their cervixes or uteruses, women often suffered horrible pain, bleeding, and uncontrollable spasms. Many subjects either died due to complications or were put to death via gas chamber Clauberg exposed over 300 women at Auschwitz to artificial insemination tactics. Clauberg reportedly taunted the women strapped down to tables before him. He told them that he had just inseminated them with animal sperm and that beasts were now growing inside of their bellies. Clauberg also experimented with castration and how this affects sterility. These castration experiments were performed without any anesthetics In June 1943, Clauberg wrote to Himmler: "The non-surgical method of sterilizing women that I have invented is now almost perfected . . . As for the questions that you have directed to me, sir, I can today answer them in the way that I had anticipated: if the research that I am carrying out continues to yield the sort of results that it has produced so far (and there is no reason to suppose that this shall not be the case), then I shall be able to report in the foreseeable future that one experienced physician, with an appropriately equipped office and the aid of ten auxiliary personnel, will be able to carry out in the course of a single day the sterilization of hundreds, or even 1,000 women." Dr. Horst Schumann, like Clauberg, was seeking an efficient way to sterilize thousands of women. Schumanns focus was the use of X-ray sterilization. Schumann would order both Jewish men and women out of concentration camps into his lab, where he would expose their reproductive organs to different levels of radiation. Many suffered radiation burns and sores Schumann found that X-ray sterilization was ineffective. During the liberation of the Jews, doctors accused of medical crimes were tried. 8 of said doctors were found guilty and hung. The Nuremberg trials took place between 1945 and 1949 and their purpose was to bring Nazi war criminals to justice, including these Nazi doctors who severely violated the rights of their subjects. Many of these people, including scientists were sentenced to death for convictions of mass genocide and crimes against humanity.
