アウシュヴィッツの善人として知られる医師、ハンス・ミュンヒに会いましょう。彼は残虐行為を支援することを拒否したからです。 彼の実験は、囚人を保護することを目的とした手の込んだ茶番劇でした。 多くの囚人が彼に有利に証言した後、彼は1947年のアウシュビッツ裁判で無罪となった唯一の人物でした。

ハンス・ミュンヒ

1943年4月、彼は武装親衛隊に科学者として採用され、アウシュヴィッツのメインキャンプから約2.5 km(XNUMXマイル)離れたライスコにある武装親衛隊衛生研究所に送られました。 ミュンヒは、同じ年齢でバイエルン出身の悪名高いヨーゼフ・メンゲレと一緒に働きました。 ミュンヒは戦前に知られている細菌学的研究を続け、収容所と囚人を時折検査した。

ミュンヒは他の医師とともに、アウシュヴィッツビルケナウ収容所での「選択」に参加し、ユダヤ人の男性、女性、子供のうち誰が働くことができ、誰が実験され、誰が処刑されるかを決定することが期待されていました。ガス室での死。 彼はこれを忌まわしくて参考にした… 続きを読む(9分間読む)

6 thoughts on “Meet Hans Münch, a doctor known as The Good Man of Auschwitz because he refused to assist in the atrocities. His experiments were elaborate farces intended to protect inmates. He was the only person acquitted of crimes at the 1947 Auschwitz trials after many inmates testified in his favour.”

    “And for this experiment we provide the test subject with beer until he starts giggling…”

    I wonder what his experiments were…

    I love the quote where he spoke about Holocaust denial.

    “When someone says that Auschwitz is a lie, that it is a hoax, I feel hesitation to say much to him. I say, the facts are so firmly determined, that one cannot have any doubt at all, and I stop talking to that person because there is no use. One knows that anyone who clings to such things, which are published somewhere, is a malevolent person who has some personal interest to want to bury in silence things that cannot be buried in silence.”

    That seems so applicable to topics and people today!

    It’s that resistance on a personal level that is so important. Like, you may not be able to fix everything, but you can do this\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_. Imagine if everyone had done just that. Millions of lives could have been saved.

    Damn reading about him later in life. He testified against his fellow fromer nazi’s at the 1964 Auschwitz Trial in Frankfurt and then worked to stop holocaust denial. THEN when was absolutely in the middle of losing his mind from Alzheimer’s disease, but He keep doing interviews and keep getting charged when it was broadcast. I’m sure if he was still alive someone would be attempting to drag him back to court for something.

    What’s amazing to me, is it’s easy to think the Holocaust happened a long long time ago, but Dr. Münch passed away only in 2001, at age 90.
