This is a little test. If you don't know, please answer before you Google it. Who was Dr. Josef Mengele?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

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.
