Doctor's from Hell by Vivien Spitz

Doctor's from Hell by  Vivien Spitz
318 pages

This book is not for the faint of heart.  Doctor's from Hell covers the account of Nazi experiments on humans during World War II.  I devoured this book over the course of a couple days.  I am a history buff and have a keen interest in WWII and the atrocities that occurred in Nazi Germany, the concentration camps and the regime that annihilated the Jewish population in Europe.

This book is by Vivien Spitz.  She is the youngest court reporter to preside over the Nuremburg trials that helped bring justice to those involved in crimes against humanity during the war.  This book tells the story of several doctors and the experiments that were tested on human subjects.  It is a chilling in depth account of survival and death.  Some of the experiments include hot and freezing temperature exposure, amputation and transplants, exposure to poisonous gasses and diseases and high altitude. They are true stories from the victims and the suffering they endured.  WARNING: book contains graphic imagery and testimonials.
