Students of the Institute in the Brazilian state of são Paulo received an unusual textbook – the remains of German physician Josef Mengele, who conducted terrible experiments on prisoners of Auschwitz concentration camp during the Second world war, according to 112.ua with reference to The Guardian.
It is noted that the remains of the Nazi was identified in 1985, and then had deposited in the Institute, because the descendants of the doctor did not want to return the skeleton home.

He explained that the main value of the remains of a Nazi in his dark past, and the resulting life trauma.
“For example, exploring the remains of Mengele, we found a crack in the left side of the pelvis, which is consistent with data on the change in the result of a motorcycle accident at Auschwitz. In addition, on the left cheek there is a small hole – a consequence of the transferred sinusitis,” – said the doctor.
