The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)


"As you know, the same installation as in Linz is to be built in Daschau. As the 'invalid transports' terminate in the special chambers anyway I wondered if it would be possible to test the effects of our different combat gases in these chambers using the persons who are destined for these chambers anyway. The only reports which are available so far are of experiments on animals or of accidents which occured in the manufacture of the gases. Because of this paragraph I am marking this letter 'Secret'."
Sigmund Rascher to Himmler, August 1942
