In the early 1990’s, Argentine authorities opened its archives to reveal that several Nazi war criminals found safe haven in South America, including Dr. Josef Mengele, also known as Auschwitz’ Angel of Death.
Mengele is infamous for his horrific experiments on inmates at the concentration camp.
According to The New York Times in 1992, Mengele entered Argentina using a Red Cross issued passport in 1949 and “practiced medicine in Buenos Aires for several years in the 1950’s” and specialized in illegal abortions.
According to the report, a young woman died after a botched abortion at the hands of Mengele. For that crime he was detained “briefly” by a Buenos Aires judge and was released when appeared in the courtroom with a “package presumably filled with a large amount of money.”
