Tuebingen medical school --Nazi era experiments #germany


In 1986 the mayor of Tuebingen publicly acknowledged that the University of
Tuebingen medical school, one of the most prominent in Germany, had in
1940-1945 obtained and used about 250 corpses of forced laborers and other
prisoners of various nationalities in its medical programs. These prisoners
had been shot, hanged, or in some cases decapitated, in various towns in
southern Germany. I have digitized the names of these persons and their
names will be sent to JewishGen for inclusion on its website. In terms of
numbers this list is small. In terms of horror, which for so long remained
unknown, it is worth noting.
