SS doctors at the Nazi death camps wore
black uniforms with a skeleton's head on their hats, the motto Unsere Ehre
heisst Treue on their belts and their symbol was the double S-rune. They had
sworn eternal faith to Adolf
Hitler and they were his most ruthless henchmen, men often seen as the very
personifications of evil.
The camp doctors tortured men, women and children and did medical experiments of unspeakable horror during the Holocaust. Victims were put into pressure chambers, tested with drugs, castrated, frozen to death. Children were exposed to experimental surgeries performed without anesthesia, transfusions of blood from one to another, isolation endurance, reaction to various stimuli. The doctors made injections with lethal germs, sex change operations, removal of organs and limbs.
The truth of the photographs of the crimes
and atrocities included in this Holocaust project needs to be shown.
The photos may be of graphic nature and disturbing - before providing
access to younger learners, parents and teachers should preview the
sites and guide through what they may read and see.
