Block 10 in Auschwitz I

Post by Yuli » 19 Feb 2019 09:54

I am searching for information regarding the activities performed in Block 10 of Auschwitz main camp since the opening of the camp and till the arrival of Carl Clauberg in April 1943 to this block. In particular, when was it converted into a medical experiments facility, what type of research was performed there in its early years? Who were the perpetrators and experimental subjects?
I would appreciate any information/references regarding these issues.

I assume the Auschwitz memorial and museum website has a lot of answers for your questions.

I went through that website and all their published literature about medical experiments, but did not find any answers to my questions.

I have two books about the hospital written by Władysław Fejkiel, the Lagerältester of the Häftlingskrankenbau in Auschwitz.
He was there since December 1940 so presumably he was the expert on this topic.
And he starts from Clauberg too, so maybe the answer is nothing worth mentioning happened in Block 10 earlier.
