There's a reason why the soldiers were imprisoned and the scientists were implored by various governments.

Some of the medical treatments they performed there are still used to this day!

Yes. It taught us a lot about what not to do. Also resulted in some medical advancements due to some really evil things done by really evil people.

As of right now, whenever someone looks at his comments, they lose approximately 4.32 IQ points.

If reminding us that there is evil on earth, then yes.

Though positive things *eventually* were learned, I would not classify it as a benefit, as if it was good that the victims and the world went through that.

The only thing I can think of is it being a lesson on history how sick and demented humanity can be. Thinking about it makes my soul hurt.

As hard as it is for me to accept it, yes it had. For example, a lot of scientific advances were made.

Agreed. This is hard to admit. Just as it's hard to admit that the crazy crap that psych wards used to get away with has also lead to advances. Not a good bit of history to reflect on. Sigh...
