Correspondence and related records regarding restitution for victims of medical experiments

Document | Accession Number: 1994.A.0037.12 | RG Number: RG-12.012

Consists chiefly of correspondence concerning the efforts of Ferencz and others to obtain restitution for victims of Nazi medical experiments; together with memoranda, clippings, articles, affidavits, reports, power of attorney documents, and other papers detailing the nature of the medical experiments, the efforts to obtain restitution, and the response of the German government. Of particular historical interest are materials relating to Dr. Hertha Oberheuser, the only female tried and convicted at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials. Following her early release from prison, Dr.Oberheuser resumed her medical practice until her licence was revoked by German medical authorities, largely as the result of protests by British medical authorities. Also see the Caroline Ferriday collection (1994.A.334) for further information on Dr.Oberheuser and the Ravensbrück Lapins.
