This is a little test. If you don't know, please answer before you Google it. Who was Dr. Josef Mengele?
Just finished Night... It's so depressing!
He was dark and ugly. An example of the unrestrained human capacity for evil.
He was called The Angel of Death and was performed thousands of gruesome experiments on Holocaust victims.
I recently watched a documentary titled "Forgiving Mengele" or something close to that. It was about one woman's journey to finding peace in her own life. She was one of the twins he experimented on. Amazing story although difficult to watch.
A nazi doctor that experimented on jews during ww2. Think he was caught in Argentina in the late 50's. A true human monster.
He was never caught. He died a free man. That is really sad.
Grandma - am i correct in remembering that he spent the rest of his life living well in Argentina? Justice not served.
Yes, you are right.
A nazi surgeon who butchered Jews and gypsies and Russians
Butchered is probably to kind a word
The sweet little old man down my street.
Please see my two links a little further down.
The real Dr. Mengele was a very evil man. He did horrible experiments on Nazi death camp prisoners, mostly on twin children.
Wait oso, serious ply, there is a dr Josef Mengele near you?
I was joking lol.
I'll assume you did not know about the atrocities this man committed, when you made your "joke." He did gruesome experiments on twin children at Auschwitz. Very few of them survived.
It really isn't a joking matter.
Please read the other comments here and my links below.
I know who he is. I know what he did. If you can't make fun of something than it's usually not fun to talk about.
How can you make fun of this at all though?
It's not funny, however i can make fun of mamy things.
Oso, I was giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming you did not know.
It's in very poor taste to make fun of this! Of course, "you can," but it is not respectful to the victims.
Anyway, I made a poll out of this, in case anybody is interested.
Dr. Death! As evil as Hitler himself! A sadistic bastard!
At 1st I remembered dr of death but they called him white angel of death because of his coat
A Nazi doctor, most famous, or infamous, for his medical experiments on prisoners at Auschwitz.
ABSOLUTELY EVIL. one of Hitler's henchmen who did experiments on people. Did not have to look that one up. When is the night of the breaking glass?
November 9. This year is the 75th anniversary.
Injecting dye to attempt to color irises...
Nazi? Right? Wait wait didn't tell me, hummmm.
Actually I'm surprised I thought everyone knew.
That was kind of the point of this poll.
I had the idea after some of yesterday's conversation on forgiving the hypothetical Nazi officer. I thought, maybe people haven't been educated enough and aren't familiar with all of the atrocities.
Hitlers doctor who experimented on many patients.
he did experiments on twins, pregnant women, kids in Auschwitz or Bergen Belsen.
Remember learning about him in school. Horrible guy.
I hear his name & I see the nazi movie clip of little kids getting dye dropped into their eyes. That image is burned into my memory. :-(
If I spoke my true feelings about him, this page would be bleeped out.
Understandable. This poll was a little experiment to gauge true knowledge of the Holocaust and its atrocities. So far, about half have admitted (in poll results), they do not know who Mengele was. On the other hand, there are some great comments.
I have a feeling that this goes a long way to explain why so many were so "forgiving" in that other poll. If you don't know what really happened ...
I guess. Some though, how do you make jokes out of this?
Scotty is a different story. Don't let him get to you.
I'm not even meaning just him or just on the poll
You are right. It makes me furious when people make Holocaust jokes here. Then, when they are called on it, they something like, "Lighten up. It's just a joke." Or they claim their free speech is being impeded.
I think the answer is more education.
I think the same goes for all the times people try to compare the holocaust to abortion. I hope at least
I only saw that the first time yesterday, when Scotty pulled that. I didn't know it was a common thing.
I've seen a few people do it. I won't name names though
By the way, Matt, did you share this poll?
Thanks! I was getting replies from people that I didn't think were my followers. Also, I've picked up a few new followers.
A nazi that did atrocious things to death camp prisoners.
An evil, evil man. Nazi. "Scientist". Sick, twisted, evil bastard.
Alice, if I spoke my true feelings about him, this page would be bleeped out.
Calling him a doctor is a disgrace to doctors. He worked for the nazis, well actually, the nazis gave him test subjects to perform terrible experiments on.
Calling him Dr. is everything just disrespectful is calling Phelps Rev. They are all blight on those professions.
A very terrible man, who performed experiments on children during the holocaust .
An pregnant women and twins and...
Krups ran slave labor camps using woman. They murdered their babies. I do not buy their products.
What? I didn't know it. That is absolute horrific. I will be sure to buy their products never again.
He did horrific experiments with humans. Also, he was the one who decide who died.
The Angel of Death
That insane Nazi doctor, I believe.
That's what I thought as well.
