Josef Mengele, brutal medical experiments on inmates at Auschwitz death camp
After the war he escaped Germany through a variety of ruses and subterfuges and lived covertly abroad until his eventual accidental death in Brazil, which was later confirmed using DNA testing on his remains.
One quotation attributed to him was "The more we do to you, the less you believe we're doing it." He also adhered to Hitler's concept of the big lie, stating, "The greater the falsehood we tell you the more completely you will believe it."
He later became known as the Todesengel (Angel of Death) of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
