Nazi angel of death Josef Mengele 'created twin town in Brazil'
Nazi angel of death Josef Mengele 'created twin town in Brazil'
The Nazi doctor Josef Mengele is responsible for the astonishing number of twins in a small Brazilian town, an Argentine historian has claimed.

One in five pregnancies in the small Brazilian town have resulted in
twins - most of them blond haired and blue eyed

The steely hearted "Angel of Death", whose mission was to create a master race fit for the Third Reich, was the resident medic at Auschwitz from May 1943 until his flight in the face of the Red Army advance in January 1945.

His task was to carry out experiments to discover by what method of genetic quirk twins were produced and then to artificially increase the Aryan birthrate for his master, Adolf Hitler.

Now, a historian claims, Mengele's notorious experiments may have borne fruit.

For years scientists have failed to discover why as many as one in five pregnancies in a small Brazilian town have resulted in twins most of them blond haired and blue eyed.

But residents of Candido Godoi now claim that Mengele made repeated visits there in the early 1960s, posing at first as a vet but then offering medical treatment to the women of the town.

1. I suppose it's not surprising that Fox and The Telegraph like this story. And of course,
the postwar flight of various Nazis to Latin America is of historical importance

But to believe Camarasa's claim, is to believe that Mengele was a brilliant doctor, whereas available accounts of his Auschwitz "experiments" suggest nothing of the sort: they suggest that Mengele was essentially a sadist, who performed cruel and pointless experiments, almost always leading to the death of the subjects, who were usually directly murdered when they did not expire from the "experimental" treatment

It is very very difficult to imagine how such "experiments" -- usually ending with the subjects' deaths -- could shed any light on human reproduction
