Twisted To The End

Brazil has discovered the papers of the notorious Nazi doctor, Josef Mengele, in a Sao Paulo police station. Apparently unknown to the police for the past quarter-century, the collection of letters and diaries by the sadistic monster of Auschwitz will be displayed for public viewing at the National Police Academy in Brasilia. They reveal Menegele as a committed Nazi and an unapologetic monster whose work in exterminating Jews and conducting bizarre and horrible medical experiments captured his complete enthusiasm.

Even at that, however, Mengele indulged in some measure of self-delusion:

Of his own actions in "selecting" whether victims at Auschwitz were to live to work or to be experimented upon, or to be dispatched in the gas chambers, he wrote: "I gave life in Auschwitz, I did not take it."

Mengele also continued to cast Jews as his personal bogeyman, even while giving them grudging respect for having survived the death factories Mengele and the other Nazis devised for them:

"The cultural production of the Jews is not to be disputed. It is possible to always perceive that their representatives are above-average intellectually and always without exception live with people who are of a high cultural level."

But he also remained true to the Fhrers ideal that Jews "should never be allowed to mix their blood with others".

And he wrote not a single word of regret about their destruction on an industrial production-line scale, yet found time to criticise Israel for its "persecution" of the Palestinians as early as 1969.

The notorious doctor died on the run, hiding from international justice and the Mossad in Brazil until his death in 1979, unconfirmed until years later. 400,000 had preceded him into death by Mengele's own actions, a mind-boggling number that only has any equal in Mengele's own superiors, or in Pol Pot, Stalin, Mao, and Saddam today. Perhaps these diaries and letters will reinvigorate our vow to "never forget", and explain to a new generation why monsters like Mengele must be stopped by breaking their grip on power.
