Josef Mengele (German: [ˈjoːzɛf ˈmɛŋələ] (13px ); 16 March 1911 – 7 February 1979) was a German Schutzstaffel (SS) officer and physician in Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. He was notorious for the selection of victims to be killed in the gas chambers and for performing unscientific and often deadly human experiments on prisoners. After the war, he fled to South America, where he evaded capture for the rest of his life.Mengele received doctorates in anthropology and medicine from Munich University and began a career as a researcher. He joined the Nazi Party in 1937 and the SS in 1938. Initially assigned as a battalion medical officer at the start of World War II, he transferred to the concentration camp service in early 1943 and was assigned to Auschwitz. There he saw the opportunity to conduct genetic research on human subjects. His subsequent experiments, focusing primarily on twins, were unscientific and had no regard for the health or safety of the victims. Mengele was also a member of the team of doctors assigned to do "selections": new arrivals deemed able to work were admitted into the camp, and those deemed unfit for labor were immediately killed in the gas chambers. Mengele left Auschwitz on 17 January 1945, shortly before the arrival of the liberating Red Army troops.Assisted by a network of former SS members, Mengele sailed to Argentina in July 1949. He initially lived in and around Buenos Aires, but fled to Paraguay in 1959 and Brazil in 1960 while being sought by West Germany, Israel, and Nazi hunters such as Simon Wiesenthal so that he could be brought to trial. In spite of extradition requests by the West German government and clandestine operations by Mossad (the Israeli intelligence agency), Mengele eluded capture. He drowned while swimming off the Brazilian coast in 1979 and was buried under a false name. His remains were disinterred and positively identified by forensic examination in 1985.

#Fact
1Is portrayed by Gregory Peck in The Boys from Brazil (1978).
2The news on his death was announced in 1985, when his remains were found in São Paulo, Brazil, after an extensive search brought on by a tip from West Germany police when they located a friend of his living in the country and who kept a diary about Mengele's grave, kept secret ever since 1979, the real year of his death. While Mengele was still alive and one of the most wanted Nazi figures, he served as the main topic from Ira Levin's 1976 novel The Boys from Brazil, later turned into a movie in 1978, and at the time of both works he was in fact living in Brazil.
3His complete academic title was: Dr. med. et Dr. phil. Josef Mengele.
4Favorite student of Third Reich professor Otmar von Verschuer, a leading German human biologist and eugenicist concerned primarily with "racial hygiene" and twin research. Mengele wrote his dissertation in medicine as Verschuer's student, after he had already written a dissertation in anthropology. In 1942 Verschuer became the director of the 'Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of Anthropology, Human Heredity, and Eugenics' ('Kaiser-Wilhelm-Institut für Anthropologie, menschliche Erblehre, und Eugenik; KWIfA') in Berlin and the 'Institute for Genetic Biology and Racial Hygiene' ('Institut für Erbbiologie und Rassenhygiene'). Verschuer was never tried for war crimes despite many indications that he not only was fully cognisant of Mengele's work at Auschwitz, but even encouraged some of his most grisly research. Dr. Mengele's inhuman experiments were based on the false and racist theories of Verscheur and others. In the summer of 1944, Mengele and his Jewish slave assistant Dr. Miklos Nyiszli sent "scientific materials" to the KWIfA, including the bodies of murdered Gypsies, internal organs of dead children, skeletons of two murdered Jews, and blood samples of twins infected by Mengele with typhus.
5He received his nickname "The Angel of Death" due to his all-white clothing.
6He died from a massive stroke while swimming.
7Was particularly interested in identical twins.
8He decided which inmates would be sent to the gas chamber on arrival.
9Nazi Doctor infamous for his experiments on concentration camp inmates.
