“…There were 67,000 inmates in the entire Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex, of which 18,000 were unable to work… Rather than sending disabled Jews to homicidal gas chambers, Mengele and other doctors at Auschwitz worked to save the lives of many thousands of inmates.” Josef Mengele (1911-1979) is famous for his alleged participation in the selection of prisoners to be executed in alleged homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau. American historian David Marwell writes: “Mengele himself admitted this activity to a number of people, including his son, and there is absolutely no question about his culpability.” Mengele is also known as a nightmarish medical doctor whose research at Auschwitz has flooded our common vocabulary with superlatives depicting evil and depravity. With the exceptions of Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler, no man has been so vilified as the personification of Nazi evil as Dr. Mengele. This article disputes this widely held image of Mengele.
