DOCTOR Josef Mengele gets no respect

Dr. Mengele is the man on the far left

Shown in the 1944 photo above, from left to right, are Dr. Josef Mengele, Richard Baer, Karl Hoecker, and Walter Schmidetski. Richard Baer, known as the last Commandant of Auschwitz, was the commander of the main camp; his adjutant was Karl Hoecker.

Dr. Josef Mengele was one of 30 SS officers at Auschwitz II, aka Birkenau, who allegedly decided who would live and who would die in the gas chambers. If selections were made by 30 SS men, this means that Dr. Mengele only made around 3% of the selections. Yet every Holocaust survivor claims that Dr. Mengele was on duty when they went through the selection process.

Dr. Josef Mengele was nicknamed the “Angel of Death” by the concentration camp prisoners because he had the face of an angel, yet he allegedly made selections for the gas chambers at Auschwitz.

DOCTOR Josef Mengele

One of the regular readers of my blog, who is a Holocaust denier, made a comment, in which he mentioned “Mengele” without using Dr. Mengele’s title of Doctor. Holocaust believers do not give Dr. Mengele the title of Doctor because they believe that Dr. Mengele made selections for the gas chamber.

Dr. Mengele had a Ph.D. in Anthropology as well as a degree in medicine, which he received in July 1938 from the University of Frankfurt. He earned his Ph.D. in 1935 with a thesis on “Racial Morphological Research on the Lower Jaw Section of Four Racial Groups.”

In January 1937, Dr. Mengele was appointed a research assistant at the Institute for Heredity, Biology and Racial Purity at the University of Frankfurt. He worked under Professor Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, a geneticist who was doing research on twins.

As the war-time director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Hereditary Teaching Genetics, located in Berlin, von Verschuer secured the funds for Dr. Mengele’s experiments at Auschwitz. The results of Dr. Mengele’s research on twins was sent to this Institute. The grant for Dr. Mengele’s genetic research was authorized by the German Research Council in August 1943.

Dr. Mengele was very nice to the little children in the camp, yet he allegedly experimented on them as though they were laboratory rats. He volunteered to do the selections at Birkenau, even when it wasn’t his turn, because he wanted to find subjects for his medical research on genetic conditions and hereditary diseases, which he had already begun before the war. He particularly wanted to find twins for the research that he had started before he was posted to Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Dr. Josef Mengele is the man on the far left

Dr. Josef Mengele was one of 30 SS officers at Auschwitz II, aka Birkenau, who allegedly decided who would live, and who would die in the gas chambers. The other 29 officers were probably not as handsome, nor as charming, as Dr. Mengele, so they never became famous.

Dr. Mengele had arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau in early May 1943, just at the time that the second typhus epidemic was starting. Dr. Mengele himself contracted typhus while he was at Birkenau.

Dr. Mengele was known by all the prisoners because of his good looks and charm. According to Gerald L. Posner and John Ware, the authors of “Mengele, the Complete Story,” many of the children in the Birkenau camp “adored Mengele” and called him “Uncle Pepi.”

Vera Alexander, a survivor of Birkenau, said that Dr. Mengele brought chocolate and the most beautiful clothes for the children, including hair ribbons for the little girls.

Olga Lengyel, a prisoner at the Birkenau camp, wrote in her book entitled “Five Chimneys” that she had heard about Dr. Mengele from the other inmates before she saw him. Lengyel wrote that she had heard that Dr. Mengele was “good-looking” but she was surprised by how “really handsome” he was.

Lengyel wrote, regarding Dr. Mengele: “Though he was making decisions that meant extermination, he was as pleasantly smug as any man could be.”

    You missed my point:
    Just show me one other Medical Doctor that received the Iron Cross First Class durting war time action! The Wiking Division were foreign nationals and he saved two out of a burning tank. THis was the other side of him, risking his own life!”
    The rest of the printed stories labout him, is as the French say: Beaucoup de merde de chev.

      Or the only true side of him…

      The French don’t say that. As a native French speaker, I’ve never heard that in my life. The word “chev” doesn’t exist in French. I don’t even know what you mean. What do you mean?

      • I was taught French by POW’s in the 1940’s, perhaps ‘cheval’ sounds better. What I meant was; The rest of it is nothing but horse shit: ‘Le resat de il est plein de merde de cheval’
        Better now?

          OK. I see. “Cheval” is correct.

          HS wrote: “What I meant was; The rest of it is nothing but horse shit: ‘Le resat de il est plein de merde de cheval’ Better now?”

          Better, but still quite incomprehensible. Firstly because the correct translation is: “Le reste n’est rien que de la merde de cheval”. “Le resat de il” means nothing. And secondly because literal translations are usually of little or no help in French-English translations. The French literal translation of “horse shit” (de la merde de cheval) means nothing to a French speaker. The French words “connerie(s)” or “foutaise(s)” are more appropriate in this context. Thus I propose the sentence: “Le reste, ce ne sont que des conneries.” or “Le reste n’est que foutaises.”

  2. Holocaust believers do not give Dr. Mengele the title of Doctor because they believe that Dr. Mengele made selections for the gas chamber.

    The key word here is “believe” — there is no evidence of wrongdoing by Mengele other than so-called eyewitness accounts — and these people are obviously liars.

      Dr. Mengele was a handsome, and charming man; that is why all the survivors remembered him.

      DOCTOR Mengele

      One thing to remember that in the German Armed Forces Mengele as a member of the SS, hehe would never be addressed as ‘Dr.’ Mengele, rather by his rank ‘Hauptsturmführer Mengele. This applied especially to the SS, as an aim of a cohesion factor and comradely which was fostered. Thus the singular ‘DU’-Hauptsturmführer was used, for example ‘ich habe ein problem, kannst Du mir behilflich sei…’.

      Whereas in the Wehrnacht, the address was ‘Herr’ Hauptmann, which the SS frowned about, answering: ;Bei uns gibt as keine Herren, (we have no Masters) unser motto ist: One for all, all for one.

      His title of Dr. is a typical post war addition in Anglo-Sachsen journalism to his name.
      PS:
      I was trained by them and will never forget their brutality

  3. No matter how good he (Mengele) was he had to be made into the monster he is known for now.
    The Jews have to have themselves as being the victims no matter what. If Jesus Christ was a doctor there I’m sure they would of accused him of some evil underhanded deeds. Actually in the Bible Jesus cured many people of their ailments and the Jews at the time said he did these miraculous acts because he was demonized. You couldn’t win with the Jews.
