    1978 fantasy about what would have happened if the Germans had managed to clone Adolf Hitler. Deeply stupid, but entertaining.

    The mad thing about this film is that Joseph Mengele was in no way a political ideologue, much less a political leader, but a conscientious doctor who did his best to save as many camp inmates as he could. Even the prisoners testify to how kind he was. And, of course, nobody would think you can turn a Jew into an Aryan by just dying their eyes blue. In fact, the only experiments Dr. Mengele carried out were on blood samples to try and cure the typhoid that was killing thousands of prisoners.

    What a stupid primitive post. Pure apologism for fascism- nothing else.
    Mengele saved nobody. And surely NOT A SINGLE PRISONER testified such bull.
    But no surprise here- another proof for fascist scum infesting this forum.

    I'm just pointing out the fact that Joseph Mengele is probably the most slandered person in all of history - probably even more so than Adolf Hitler. When, in fact, Mengele was a good doctor who saved the lives of thousands of people, and who did a lot of research on blood samples to try and save more. He NEVER did experiments trying to turn brown eyes blue, NEVER mutilated people, or any of that crap Hollywood loves so much. The only experiments he EVER carried out where on blood samples. In fact, Ann Frank and her sister were cured of scabies in the camp hospital - probably under the medical supervision of the good doctor.

    Some Jews give a very different perspective on life in the camps. Of course, I'm not suggesting that life in any prison is a bed of roses - particularly when the enemy is bombing all your supply lines and you don't even have enough food for your own soldiers, not to mind prisoners.

    When I meet someone with whom I disagree, I will ask why they may hold their opinion. In this instant he believes the Holocaust was hoaxed or exaggerated. He posts a video of 4/5 people saying their existence in the camp was pleasant. I watched the video. So somebody is telling lies it would appear. Why don't you watch it and tell me what you think of it.

    Now if I were asked about this whole thing, I would simply ask why these Jews were not just shot if the intention was to get rid of them.

    I doubt if these nice people recollecting their memories are making them up, so maybe some of these camps were not as barbaric as one would assume all such camps were based on the general historical narrative, but they don't say nobody was killed. They don't say there were no gas chambers. They don't say that nobody was badly treated.

    In short, their testimonies don't really contradict the historical narrative that these camps were death factories, which many, many other testimonies claim.

    All I'm saying here is that Dr. Mengele seems to have been nothing like what he was painted out to be by Allied propaganda, and that his "diabolical experiments" were confined to blood tests - mostly with the object of curing disease in the camp. Of course nobody is sent to a prison or camp for the good of their health and there was huge loss of life in these camps - mostly from disease, but also from abuse and murder. But, I'd go so far as to suggest that the mortality rate was very much less in Auschwitz than in Eisenhower's Rhine Meadows Death Camps. The Operation Reinhard camps do seem to have been death camps with a huge mortality rate, but Dr. Mengele had nothing to do with them.
