The information is provided through the author’s first hand account as a court reporter of the Nazi doctor’s crimes at the Nuremberg trialsShe presents the chapters through the different Nazi experiments on humans For example there is a chapter on freezing experiments another chapter on sterilization another chapter on mustard gas experiments etc Because the chapters are divided in this manner it makes it easy to use for research purposes while for the common reader it allows you to easily obtain the informationThe facts are explained through the Nuremberg testimonies as reported by the court It is not the entire report but only the pertinent information for the purpose of the book The reports account for dialogue between both the prisoners Nazi’s judge witnesses and prosecutors The author explains the court reports before and after exposing them to provide background information She uses language that is understandable for the common layman to comprehend Photos are included throughout this bookKeep in mind that this is a memoir which is considered literary nonfiction So there are moments when she does recount her thoughts and feelings during this time Occasionally she will discuss her life in Germany while working as a young reporter; this adds to the setting during this time since her and other reporters had no warm running water etcas a result of the warI recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the facts during the Holocaust specifically the atrocities committed by Nazi doctors to innocent civilians in Germany Well written book but I felt a bit hoodwinked The title suggested a comprehensive picture of the atrocities committed by medical professionals within the Third Reich However the book is really a summary of court room testimonies as recorded by one of the court reporters The author also gives a brief glimpse in to the climate physical and emotional of Nuremberg during the secondary trials and her life after returning to the USInterestingly one of the witnesses for the prosecution was Dr Eugon Kogon who survived a concentration camp I think it was Dachau His book written shortly after liberation of the camp gives a much better account of experiences in the camp You can find it here Documented history hopefully never to be lost A fresh approach to the Nuremberg trials and the atrocities of the Holocaust Spitz the youngest court reporter during this time of testimony writes with a profound sense of truth and a no nonsense dedication to facts One of my Christmas presents? Couldn't we pick something a little cheerful? Considering the author was the court reporterof course the book is highly detailed She also does a good job reporting from a non insider point of view especially just about how things were run how she got to be in the trial and all of that When it came down to the trials themselves and what was said if you're a world war II buff this is really good She definitely did a good thing putting all this information out there If you have any interest in the topic at all this is the book for youI personally got the book to find out about the nazi experiments while there was plenty of information on that topic it wasn't really what I was looking for the book focused on her getting to the trial and how it changed her and what she saw back home I feel like the title was false advertising in that regard If you're looking for information on the nazi medical experiments and don't already have a solid base knowledge then start here But for those like me looking for obscure knowledge on the subject go somewhere else uick take thanks to an ongoing hand injury that doesn't like typing 35 stars really but I'll grant it a 4 because it's such a uniue perspective on otherwise available information Spitz intersperses her Nuremberg transcripts with personal wartime anecdotes that make it easier to imagine what being in the presence of evil was really likeOn the other hand the detours outside of the courtroom may be taken as false advertising courtesy of the title of this book It's not as one might expect a dispassionate 300 wall to wall pages of Nazi horrors; Spitz spends a chapter here and there illustrating postwar Germany and America and it does take a while for her to bring us into the court with her young self I was a bit impatient in the beginning but by the end and after a dozen chapters illuminating some of the most upsetting and repulsive things humanity has ever done I welcomed the sidelines about how she dealt with her job on a personal level It took me out of the terrible things too vividly conjured in my own head by the haunted words of Dachau survivorsOverall this is a well researched finely remembered account of the doctors who were tried for war crimes Once you get to the details of the experiments you may find yourself wishing you'd turned back; I felt uite ill at points and I'm pretty well versed in my WWII history The witness testimony will shake even the most unshakable reader and the total lack of guilt or remorse from the defendants is still a total gut punch 70 years later The Kindle version has some formatting problems that make a few of the transcribed sections difficult to follow but that's a fairly minor uibble in the face of this insider accessIf you're looking for an entry level book on the subject of the Nazi experiments and the Nuremberg trials this will work for you If you're a bit advanced you may want to seek out a specific deep dive kind of book instead Truth be told thoughfor me the level of detail in DOCTORS FROM HELL was than enough I can barely figure out how I'll ever get those chapters out of the front of my mind let alone imagine wanting to read about them You've been warned It's almost certainly worse than your history classes let on I'm at a loss If I were setting a curriculum for anyone seeking any degree in any medical profession andor governmental profession I would make this reuired reading Actually I think I would make ethics be a reuired course for all and it would include this book We often think of terrible atrocities carried committed against mankind are only done by the most uncivilized least advanced societies This book proves that nothing could be further from the truth People need to see what can happen when the state is exalted and science is misused to advance the state and God's teaching to love one's fellow man is rejected It soon becomes all to easy for the individual to be 'dehumanized' If he be considered an enemy to the state he can be referred to as a 'human guinea pig' or a 'rabbit' or even 'material' and the results can be horrific I am confident that God has blessed and may he continue to bless Vivian Spitz for having the courage to right this book This was honestly probably one of the hardest books I’ve ever read While I wish there were details about the crimes at the same time I don’t think I would have been able to finish it if there were A book that must be read by everyone I tried so hard and got so far Page 190 but in the end I just couldn't finish this bookIf you're looking for a book about the accounts of Nazi experiments on humans there are several other titles that will give you than enough information without forcing you to wade through unnecessary descriptions of the black market value of cigarettes This book would have fared so much better as an autobiography as an overwhelming amount of time was spent describing the author outside of the courtroom Many of the chapters eually split focus between transcripts and how the author felt about trivial subjects such as her roommate or space heaters The introduction provided just enough if not information as the chapters as the author literally lists out everything that she will be talking about in the bookThe chapters include odd sub headers in an obnoxiously large font that seem to be generated at random; some state dates some list names some describe a scene in the following paragraphs Some of these sections go on for pages; some last a single paragraph Almost all of the chapters were laid out in a repetitive format the date of the experiments why the Nazis stated that they were performing the experiments a poorly edited transcript overloaded with unnecessary information such as the martial status and current residency of the victim and the same conclusion that the end that there was no scientific grounds for the experiments The book also had an annoying habit of referring to itself in the middle of narration Honestly the fact that the author touched on so many of the experiments and victims earned her some brownie points But please save yourself some time and read another book
