Nazis In The Austrian Cellar: Simon Wiesenthal Centre Wants Aribert Heim

by | 1st, May 2008

HUNTING down the last Nazis – it’s never too late:

The top target is Aribert Heim, now 93. Jewish prisoners at Mauthausen concentration camp probably knew better him as “Doctor Death”. The Austrian medic would inject petrol and an array of different poisons straight into the hearts of his so-called patients to see which killed them fastest. He once removed the tattooed flesh of a prisoner and turned it into soft furnishings for his commandant’s flat.

An 18-year-old Jewish footballer and swimmer who was sent to Heim with an inflammation of the foot was knocked out, castrated and then decapitated. His head was boiled to remove the flesh and his skull was put on display. “[Heim] needed the head because of its perfect teeth,” testified one hospital worker at the camp, according to an arrest warrant uncovered by the Associated Press news agency.

Look in the cellar…
