|~ Josef Mengele|
He conducted terrible experiments on prisoners that earned him the nickname of the "Angel of Death": some of Mengele's victims were children (mainly identical twins), further adding to his infamy.
Mengele's experimentation was part of a wider network of such atrocities that were committed by so-called "doctors" and "scientists" during this time, taking advantage of the Holocaust to further their own unethical projects.
Following the end of the Third Reich and with the help of his family, he fled from Argentina to Paraguay and later to Brazil following the capture of Adolf Eichmann in 1960.
Josef Mengele suffered a stroke while swimming and died on February 7th, 1979 - aged 67, having managed to evade numerous manhunts performed after WWII to try and capture former Nazis (especially those involved in the Holocaust).
In Other Media
Josef's experiments were made into a movie known as The Human Centipede. In the movie, Josef's experiments are shown how did they look in-real-life.
- His son Rolf visited him in 1977, after being told by family members to visit him saying that his health wasn't looking good. Rolf soon learned that his father was unrepentant for his actions claiming he had never personally harmed anyone and had only done his duty.
