Best Answer

A lot of medical experimentation was done at Auschwitz - Dr. Josef Mengele carried out procedures like:

-Seeing how long soldiers could last in the cold by placing inmates in a freezer until they expired

-Shooting inmates to see how wounds could be treated with minimal supplies

-Poisoning inmates to test cyanide alternatives

Just to name a few.
