Josef Mengele - John Grabowski

Josef Mengele is a well-known figure of the Nazi occupation of Europe as The Angel of Death, a man who not only sent thousands of people to their deaths, but also conducted horrific experiments on them.

This book details Mengele's life, including his childhood, his experiments in Auschwitz, and his life after fleeing the country as a war criminal. Being a book aimed for juveniles means that the accounts are not too detailed; however, simple descriptions of transplanting eyes and injecting eyes with pigment may be disturbing to the reader.

This is an informative and short read about the man responsible for thousands of deaths and tortures.
