The central leader of the experiments was Josef Mengele, who performed experiments on over 1,500 sets of imprisoned twins, of which fewer than 200 individuals survived the studies. Whilst attending University of Munich (located in the city that remained one of Adolf Hitler’s focal points during the revolution) studying philosophy and medicine with an emphasis on anthropology and paleontology, Mengele got swept up in the Nazi hysteria and even said that “this simple political concept finally became the decisive factor in my life”.

The Nazi organization saw his studies as talents, and Mengele was asked to be the leading physician and researcher at Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland in May 1943. There, Mengele organized genetic experiments on twins. In 1941, the Luftwaffe conducted experiments to learn how to treat hypothermia.First, to establish how long it would take to lower the body temperature to death, and second how to best resuscitate the frozen victim.The icy vat method proved to be the fastest way to drop the body temperature.The selections were made of young healthy Jews or Russians.They were usually stripped naked and prepared for the experiment.Typically, the experiments resulted in death, disfigurement or permanent disability.
