Medical experiments on prisoners in concentration camps were not unusual. What is less known, however, are such activities at medical institutions not directly linked to concentration camps. One of these was the Tübingen, Germany medical school, one of the most prominent in Germany.
In June 1986, the mayor of Tübingen wrote to the International Tracing Service (ITS) in Bad Arolsen, submitting the list of 278 prisoners whose bodies had been used at the medical school, and who were subsequently buried in a local cemetery. These prisoners were of varied nationalities, primarily Russian and Polish. All had perished at nearby forced labor or internment camps — some hung, some shot, and others decapitated.
