Josef Mengele Angel of Death: A Biography of Nazi EvilBetter known as the Angel of Death today Dr. Josef Mengele is best remembered for the series of grisly experiments and murders he carried out during the Holocaust.
Born in 1911 to a wealthy family in Ulm in southern Germany the young Josef Mengele studied both medicine and philosophy at university, whilst there he became particularly interested in the field of eugenics. The science of eugenics was at the peak of its popularity during the early decades of the twentieth century. Mengeles interest in eugenics was developed further when, as a young practitioner, came under the guidance of Dr. von Verschuer, a prominent German eugenicist.
During the following chapters, we shall look at how Germanys turbulent, racist and anti-Semitic society, which was particularly virulent in the post World War I Weimar Republic period, shaped the views of the young Josef Mengele. This ultimately led to him joining the Nazi party, an organization that held similar views to Mengele on the subject of eugenics. The Nazi party would also allow him free reign to conduct his ghastly experiments.
