Dr. Mengele

Whenever Josef Mengele tranferred, he made a change. he became Dr. Mengele. Dr. Mengele did a ton of medical experiments, some using twins. These twins as young as five years old were usually killed after the experiment was over and their bodies were dissected. Dr. Mengele was the chief provider for the gas chambers at Auschwitz - and did good! When it was reported that some women had been infected with lice, Mengele “saved the day” by gassing all the 750 women assigned to it, therefore killing them.
