Bone, muscle, and nerve transplantation experiments
From September 1942 to December 1943 experiments were conducted at the Ravensbrück camp, for the benefit of the German Armed Forces, to study bone, muscle, and nerveregeneration,
and bone transplantation from one person to another. Sections of bones,
muscles, and nerves were removed from the subjects without use of anesthesia. As a result of these operations, many victims suffered intense agony, mutilation, and permanent disability.
Head injury experiments
In mid-1942 in Baranowicze, Poland, experiments were conducted in a small building behind the private home occupied by Nazi officer Dr. Wichtmann, in which "a young boy of eleven or twelve [was]
strapped to a chair so he could not move. Above him was a mechanized
hammer that every few seconds came down upon his head." The boy was
driven insane from the torture.
Mustard gas experiments
At various times between September 1939 and April 1945, many experiments were conducted at Sachsenhausen, Natzweiler, and other camps to investigate the most effective treatment of wounds caused by mustard gas. Test subjects were deliberately exposed to mustard gas and other vesicants (e.g. Lewisite) which inflicted severe chemical burns. The victims' wounds were then tested to find the most effective treatment for the mustard gas burns.
From July 1942 to September 1943, experiments to investigate the effectiveness of sulfonamide, a synthetic antimicrobial agent, were conducted at Ravensbrück. Wounds inflicted on the subjects were infected with bacteria such as Streptococcus, Clostridium perfringens (the causative agent in gas gangrene) and Clostridium tetani, the causative agent in tetanus.
Circulation of blood was interrupted by tying off blood vessels at both
ends of the wound to create a condition similar to that of a
battlefield wound. Infection was aggravated by forcing wood shavings and
ground glass into the wounds. The infection was treated with
sulfonamide and other drugs to determine their effectiveness.
