Becoming the "Angel of Death"
Dr. Mengele was born as Josef Mengele on March 16, 1911, in Gunzburg. He studied philosophy in Munich University and medicine in Frankfurt University. Mengele joined the Nazi party in 1937, and then went to the SS in 1938. While fighting in Russia in 1942 he was wounded and had to leave his unit. He decided to volunteer at a concentration camp in Auschwitz as a research doctor, which meant experimenting on humans in a death camp. Due to his horrific experiments, he got the nickname ‘Angel of Death’.
