The core of this book is the translation of a small volume written by Dr. Mitscherlich after acting as observer for the German medical profession at the trial of a score of their colleagues before the American Military Tribunal at Nuremberg on charges of bestiality and organized sadism masquerading as scientific experiment. The incomparably horrible story unrolled before the court is here set down in sordid detail, along with statements by several American experts associated with the case.
