zeszyty oswiecimskie - "Auschwitz Notebooks" - exposing the crimes of Nazi war criminal Dr. Carl Clauberg who performed experiments on Auschwitz camp inmates with the aim of sterilizing them", published by Wydawnictwo Panstwowego Muzeum w Oswiecimiu - Publishing House of the State Museum at Auschwitz, 1958. Polish.
"The main goal of the main series of experiments conducted on Nazi concentration camp inmates was to find a method of mass sterilization for the biological destruction of entire nations" (from the introduction). An important booklet revealing evidence and historical documents about the crimes of Nazi war criminal Dr. Carl Clauberg, who sterilized women at the Auschwitz extermination camp and performed horrific experiments on them.
Clauberg worked with Horst Schumann on a sterilization experiment using X-rays at the Auschwitz extermination camp. In 1942 he turned to Heinrich Himmler and requested permission to sterilize women for his experiments. Himmler agreed, and Clauberg arrived at the Auschwitz extermination camp in December 1942. Part of Block 10 of the main camp became his laboratory. Most of his research victims were Jewish or Romani women, and they suffered irreversible damage and severe infections due to the cruel experiments. Some victims died as a result of the experiments and the rest were murdered so that autopsies could be performed on their bodies post-mortem.
The booklet reveals documents found at Auschwitz containing lists of inmate names taken to Clauberg's clinic for experimentation on their bodies. Based on these documents and eyewitness accounts of the experiments, the booklet exposes the horrific process from the moment a woman was selected for experimentation until she was sterilized, including letters from Clauberg to Himmler detailing the entire process and Clauberg's intention for the method to be developed for mass sterilization, and how this was actually planned in practice in a letter sent by Viktor Brack to Himmler on June 23, 1942, in which he wrote that 2-3 million Jews in Europe should be left alive and not killed since there is a possibility to sterilize them and leave them in the workforce required by Nazi Germany.
The booklet brings among other things many documents from the "Clauberg file" revealing his crimes for which he was convicted. Among others appear
