Meet the Notorious Dr. Joseph Mengele

Death documents of notorious Nazi doctors at the Auschwitz death camp – including perhaps the sadistic Dr. Joseph Mengele is believed to be found in the attic of a nearby house. The documents have been found near the area where they have last seen for decades, according to report.

 Dr. Joseph Mengel
Documents include food coupons, death certificates and a map and other documents relating to the lives of Nazi officials.
Adam Cyra, a historian at the Auschwitz memorial museum who is looking through the documents, said that some sugar coupons bear the names of Horst Fischer and Fritz Klein, doctors who were executed for their crimes after the war.

According to him, the sensational value of the documents found is the fact that these original documents, bearing the names of main murderers from Auschwitz, were found so many years after the war.

The historian said that the June 1943 coupon for a small amount of sugar probably was assigned to Dr. Joseph Mengele, who was infamous for his sadistic experiments.

Doctors and pharmacists at the camp conducted pseudo-medical experiments on the inmates and helped select Jews arriving at the camp for either labor or death. Mengele escaped after World War II and evaded capture for the rest of his life.

About 150 blank food coupons and death certificates were also found.
