The “Doctors Trial ” aka Medical Case charged 24 defendants with responsibility for medical experiments upon concentration camp inmates and other living human subjects, without their consent, in the course of which murders, tortures and other inhuman acts were committed.
The Opening Statement was delivered by Brigadier General Telford Taylor. The two principal prosecutors were McHaney and Hardy. This segment shows two female witnesses who were subject to experiments. After almost 140 days of proceedings, including the testimony of 85 witnesses and the submission of almost 1,500 documents, the Tribunal pronounced their verdicts.
Sixteen of the doctors were found guilty. Seven were sentenced to death and executed on June 2, 1948. They include Karl Brandt and Karl Gebhardt. For further information see http://www.roberthjackson.org
