    1. Mengele conducted medical experiments on twins. He also directed serological experiments on Roma (Gypsies), as did Werner Fischer at Sachsenhausen, in order to determine how different "races" withstood various contagious diseases. The research of August Hirt at Strasbourg University also intended to establish "Jewish racial inferiority."

      There is no ethical thing about this "Jewish racial inferiority" because with the resilience of some races to different diseases, they established the "inferiority" at where they were researching. It causes problems because it makes it cloudy to the minds if they were helping or not.

    2. Other gruesome experiments meant to further Nazi racial goals were a series of sterilization experiments, undertaken primarily at Auschwitz and Ravensbrueck.

      This also is unethical, because people have basic rights to make children or offspring. This is unethical because it is was given without consent which in this time and place was not unusual. This shows that with mass sterilization was uncalled for and that with the after effects made it ethical and had to have consent for the procedure.

    3. Unethical medical experimentation carried out during the Third Reich may be divided into three categories.

      By unethical, doctors and scientists experimented on people without supervision or ethics. This shows that in the Nazi Germany that the experiments could be anything and it can have no ethics, this helped with the code of ethics we follow today.

    1. Professor Maria Luiza Tucci Carneiro, a historian who coordinates the University of São Paulo’s Laboratory for the Study of Ethnicity, Racism and Discrimination, said she hopes the classroom learning eventually goes beyond the science to history and ethics.

      What she says is that Mengele did is unethical and hopes that the students learn that this should never happen again and that there was no profound evidence that the experiments never had an impact on medicine.

    2. Students should also learn “how physicians, psychiatrists and other leading scientists were in the service of the Reich, lending their knowledge to exclude the ethnic groups classified as belonging to inferior races”, said Carneiro. “An exclusion that culminated in genocide.”

      This shows that even today people learned that the scientists, psychiatrists, and psychiatrists were in the Reich did not acknowledge any of research of any "inferior groups". This shows that Mengele did not acknowledge the research of people that found vaccines for diseases that were not part of the "Master race'.

    3. “The bones will be helpful to teach how to examine the remains of an individual and then match that information with data in documents related to the person,”

      The bones are helpful teaching because it shows the history of medical history of Mengele. This shows that the bones are proven useful to what happened to Mengele throughout his life. The data shows that helps show that can be traced. It also shows that with modern science and technology it is able to show what he suffered from and what killed him.

    4. Dr Daniel Romero Muñoz, who led the team that identified Mengele’s remains in 1985, saw an opportunity to put them to use. Several months ago, the head of the department of legal medicine at the University of São Paulo’s Medical School obtained permission to use them in his forensic medical courses.

      This shows that the bones of people are put to use. This is a connection to what happened in Auschwitz because after a person was decomposed from experimentation, the bones were sent to Berlin for examination.
