The remains of victims of the Nazis that have been used for medical experiments shall be buried in Berlin more than seven many years years after the top of Adolf Hitler’s dictatorship.
Some 300 microscopic tissue samples belonging to resistance fighters, principally ladies, who have been executed in the course of the Third Reich after which used for experiments can be laid to rest Monday at a cemetery in the capital.
The remains belong to resistance fighters executed at Berlin’s Ploetzensee prison. More than 2,800 individuals have been killed at Ploetzensee and most victims’ bodies have been dissected afterward at a Berlin college’s anatomy institute.
In 2016, the tissue samples have been discovered by the descendants of the anatomist Hermann Stieve, who worked on bodies of Third Reich opponents. They have been handed over to a memorial group.
