I’ll start with the obvious: I know that the Nazi scientific/biological tests were horrendous and inhumaine. I don’t want to underemphasize that.
However, that aside, did the Nazi’s tests make significant advances in the understanding of human biology? Were any of those tests later used to make advancements that we profit from today?
I recently did a study on Eugenics, and I came across a lot of information about the Nazi’s tests with twins, sick people, etc. The German scientists crossed a lot of lines that most other scientists would never (and for good reason, of course), and I’m wondering if we’re in some way better off for it now (in the sense that we can glean some minute good from such a horrible time in history, not in any way trying to portray the Nazis as forerunners or trailblazers).
