JOSEF MENGELE

Lot 0012 Details

Description
(1911 - ca. 1980) Nazi "doctor" who plied his trade at Auschwitz, he was the most brutal and detestable of all the camp doctors. It was Mengele's decision as to whether camp inmates would be used as forced labor or sent directly to the gas chambers, and he as well performed hideous experiments on inmates, especially twins. After the war, Mengele fled to Argentina where he avoided capture until his death. Rare pre-war signature, "Jos. Mengele", 1p. oblong 12mo., Berlin, May 21, 1929, a handwritten note, presumably written by one of his high school classmates, to their principal, Dr. Offner. In part: "We would like to thank our principal for the holiday granted to us and allow us to send our best regards". Mengele signs in pencil at the conclusion, alongside some of his other classmates. Fine condition.
