Nazi Human Experimentation

Nazi human experimentations were a series of medical experiments on large numbers of prisoners, mainly Jews, including Jewish children from across Europe, but also in some cases ethnic Poles, Soviet POWs and disabled non-Jewish Germans, by Nazi Germany in its concentration camps mainly in the early 1940s, during World War II and the Holocaust. Prisoners were forced into participating; they did not willingly volunteer and there was never informed consent. Typically, the experiments resulted in death, disfigurement or permanent disability, and as such are considered as examples of medical torture.
