Researching germ warfare, enemy soldiers and civilians
were used as guinea pigs. They were deliberately infected
with plague, anthrax, cholera and other pathogens. Some
of the more horrific experiments included vivisection
without anesthesia, pressure chambers to see how much a human could take before his eyes popped out, trials to
determine the effect of frostbite on the human body, and
research on the pregnancies of women with syphilis.
