You can read a new book of fiction about Dr. Mengele, the famous doctor at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp during World War II: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/books/2016/09/03/mischling-affinity-konar-book-review/89535020/
The following quote is from the news article, cited above:
Stasha and Pearl are 12 when they are forced into a rail car bound for Auschwitz with their mother and their beloved Zayde. “Mischling” is German for half-breed, an ugly term that prepares the reader for the horrors the twins will endure.
This is not an easy novel to read, but Affinity Konar’s evocative storytelling, fierce characters and haunting prose make Mischling (Lee Boudreaux Books/Little, Brown, 338 pp., *** ½ out of four stars) equally hard to put down.
Stasha and Pearl are based on real-life Auschwitz survivors Eva and Miriam Mozes, who were among 3,000 twins who became guinea pigs for the demented genetic experiments of infamous Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele. Pearl and Stasha are captivating heroines. Pearl is a dancer, the more social of the twins. The introspective Stasha finds her swagger at Auschwitz. When Pearl disappears at a twisted concert performance, Stasha plots vengeance on [Dr.] Mengele.
Dr. Mengele is normally not given the honor of having the title of Dr. in his name because he was a Nazi who allegedly tortured little children.
You can read about the children, who were prisoners at Auschwitz-Birkenau on this page of my website:
The following quote is also from the news article:
[Dr.] Mengele enlisted prisoners who were doctors in his horrific experiments, and the beautiful Dr. Miri is one of the book’s many haunting [fictional] characters. Dr. Miri was forced to kill Jewish infants and remove her own sisters’ wombs so they could not reproduce.
Dr. Mengele was a very handsome and charming man. I personally think that he was gay, but what do I know!
His wife left him after several years of marriage, which was very unusual back then, in Germany, especially since he was noted for being a nice person.
