  • Mengele And His Twins At Auschwitz
    1,369 words
    Bad Science On Monday, November 15th, 1982 the New York Times published an article entitled "Out of Death, a Zest for Life". The title caught my eye because it seemed to be the only one that didn't have to do with politics, the economy, or terrorism. The author, Nadine Brozan, wrote this article based on an interview with a woman named Dr. Giselle Perl. Dr. Perl was a Hungarian gynecologist and a survivor of the Holocaust from one of its most famous death camps; Auschwitz. As a prisoner, she was...
  • Mengele's Collection Of Twins
    1,367 words
    THE ANGEL OF DEATH Some of the most enduring images of Auschwitz are the terrible scenes of the arrival of a transport of Jews to that concentration camp. Amid the chaos and despair stood a lone figure in immaculate uniform and spotless white gloves inspecting the inmates and waving each in turn to one side or the other with his riding crop. To one side lay starvation, brutality, and deprivation but a chance for survival. To the other side, instant death in the gas chambers. The frightening figu...
  • Josef And Marie From The Nazis
    1,186 words
    'Divided We Fall,' a Czech movie about hard decisions and loyalty, not to one's country, but to yourself, is very well by director Jan Hrebejk. This movie, considered a black comedy, is more than just a true story being told; it shows how hard it was for one family to conceal a Jewish person in their home. Conger Kassai's character, David, escaped prison in Poland and returned to Czechoslovakia where he thought that someone could help him. He is taken in by his former employee (Bole k Polivka, w...
  • Dr Josef Mengele
    600 words
    Mengele, "The Angel of Death" Dr. Josef Mengele was rightfully named "The Angel of Death" due to his major and infamous involvement in the tragedy of the Auschwitz concentration camps. This so called "doctor" was as different as night and day at any given time. On one side he was considered a gentle person who went out of his way to help small children and young adults to feel comfortable during his procedures. However, his other side gave him an essence of pure evil. Mengele had the full permis...

  • Life Story Of Josef Mengele
    1,559 words
    The life story of Josef Mengele is one that is filled many twists and turns that play out like a suspense story with an ending that does not seem to fit what one would expect. The authors of the book Mengele: The Complete Story, Gerald L. Posner and John Ware, wrote this book largely with information taken from diaries and letters of Mengele's, and interviews with those who knew him. It is a look into the life and times of a man whose nickname was 'The Angel of Death. ' ; Josef's life and post-m...
  • Auschwitz Josef Mengele

    Joseph Mengele and his Atrocities Three thousand twins entered Auschwitz between 1940 and 1944. Only two hundred and fifty pairs of twins ever had the smell of freedom again. Why did this unfortunate event occur? It occurred because the Nazis party was in control and Adolf Hitler was the Fuhrer and he wanted a perfect race. 'Right, left', what kind of a man could send people to their death with a flick of a cane, without one scent of remorse or one inkling of guilt? -his name was Josef Mengele. ...

    Fifteen years ago the world let out a sigh of relief with the discovery of 208 bones and a few rags. For over forty years survivors of the Nazi death camps known as Auschwitz were haunted by the vision of the handsome, well dressed man with a caring smile who pointed his white-gloved finger either left or right deciding who lived (at least for the moment) and who died. Those who passed this man and survived have always remembered the man known as the Angel of Death. These are the people who ques...
