The medical conditions in concentration camps were very horrable. Many
things happened to the prisoners at this camp and most of the worst things
happened because of the medical treatments.
Throughout all the camps medical experiments were performed on the
prisoners. They were not only performed on the jewish but on all different
kinds of people that were at the camps. The experiments were for the most
part either harsh or deadly. Some of the experiments were as follows.
People were submersed in ice cold water for hours on end to test out new
kinds of suits. Others were deprived of oxygen, sterilized, had patches of
there skin burned, or immediatly killed by an injection to the heart for
dissection. Some people were also sent away to anatomy hospitals.
One of the most desired places to be by doctors was Block 10. Block 10
was in Auschwitz and was a medical block. It meant the difference between
life and death for many people in Auschwitz. There were benefits and
disadvantages to being there for both the doctors and the prisoners.
For a doctor it was seen as a chance to do any and all experiments
they thought might be interesting. For prisoners it was a chance to
live, if they were lucky. Some prisoners were taken by doctors for
experiments and depending on the nature of the experiment they might
live for a long time or be killed imediatly.
Doctors picked which people should be killed through a selection process.
A person could be killed for having as little as a tiny scar, or because
ofa defect, or anything at all. The doctors of Block 10 are most remembered.
The two that stand out most are Josef Mengele and Ernst B. Josef Mengele
as one of the cruelest doctors who killed many, many people. He was said
to be seen at selections night and day. And in some cases even taking
children to the gas chambers by playing a game with them. However, Ernst B.
was different. In fact, some prisoners even refused to identify him for
authorities. He did not perticapate in selections. He also saw to it to
save many llives by performing non-harmful experiments. He was never charged
with war crimes and was remembered as one of the only caring nazis and freind
of the prisoners.
The Medical conditions throughout the camps were very harsh, as i have told
you already. However they could somtimes be life saving. And even somtimes
provided caring doctors.
