Kacshub, Emil (1919 - 1977)
War Criminals, German

Thiis man was a doctor at Auschwitz who did experiments on prisoners. In the late summer of 1944, the Wehrmacht sent Emil Kaschub, a physician with the rank of corporal, to Auschwitz in an effort to unmask the various methods of malingering that were becoming widespread among German soldiers, especially on the eastern front. These methods included self-inflicted wounds, abscesses, fever, and infectious hepatitis. He experimented on Jewish prisoners by rubbing various toxic substances into their skin or injecting them into their limbs, and giving them oral medicine (Atebrine) in order to provoke the same symptoms being presented by German soldiers.
