Getting the job

Josef Mengele first became a medical officer with the Waffen S.S. ( You are going to fix these?) He then was appointed chief doctor at the extermination camp, Auschwitz. ( ) People discovered, “He volunteered to work at a concentration camp where he would find plenty of ‘human material’ to continue his search into racial purity,” (Encyclopedia Americana 1 - this is not correct - use whatever word comes first in the Works Cited entry). (delete these-only need one set of parentheses per fact/qyote )  At Auschwitz, he was told to send people to do labor or for immediate extermination. ( ) This job gave Mengele power which became very chaotic.  While he was at Auschwitz he sent over 400,000 people into gas chambers for their death. ( )






People that were old, sick, weak, or under the age of fourteen got sent straight to extermination. ( ) Anyone who was not “fit” enough to work got sent to their deaths. ( ) This process of choosing the fates of innocent peoples’ lives went very quickly. ( ) Society declared, “….byname ‘Todesengel’ (‘Angel of Death’) for sending hundreds of thousands of people to gas chambers,” (Encyclopedia Americana 1). ( )  When people got sent to gas chambers they had to undress for a “shower.” ( )    Explain what would happen in the "shower"                                          

                                                                     This is a picture of the ovens used in concentration camps.







Mengele took Jewish and Gypsy infants, young twins, and dwarfs to do experiments on. ( ) He did these experiments because he wanted to increase the German race. ( ) Examiners explained, “The experiments involved surgeries performed without anesthesia, injections with lethal germs, sex-change operations, and the removal of organs and limbs,” (Encyclopedia Americana 1). ( ) Patients in his experiments received fifteen injections a week. ( ) Josef Mengele once did a heart removal procedure without any anesthesia. ( )

After the Camps

After Auschwitz, Mengele moved to another concentration camp, Mauthansen. ( ) Mengele fled Mauthansen after it was liberated. ( ) He had been a prisoner of was by U.S. troops until they let him go. ( ) Then he lived in Paraguay and then moved to Brazil. ( ) Speaker tag,“….he died of a stroke in 1979 while swimming at a Brazilian beach,”

exclaimed researchers (Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia 1).
