About the Book :
This is a chilling story of human depravity and ultimate justice, told for the first time by an eyewitness a court reporter for the Nuremberg war crimes trial of Nazi doctors. This is the account of torturing and murder by experiment in the name of scientific research and patriotism. Doctors from Hell includes trial transcripts that have not been easily available to the general public and previously unpublished photographs used as evidence in the trial.The author describes the experience of being in bombed-out, dangerous, post-war Nuremberg, where she lived for 18 months while working on the trial. Once a Nazi sympathizer tossed bombs into the dining room of the hotel where she lived moments before she arrived for dinner. She takes us into the courtroom to hear the dramatic testimony and see the reactions of the defendants to the proceedings. The witnesses tell of experiments in which they were deprived of oxygen; frozen; injected with malaria, typhus and jaundice; subjected to the amputation of healthy limbs; forced to drink sea water for weeks at a time; and other horrors.
