Dr. Josef Mengele arrives at Auschwitz. As medical officer of Auschwitz-Birkenau's "Gypsy Camp," his first duty will be to send Gypsies suspected of suffering from typhoid to the gas chambers.
Josef Mengele remains in charge of this portion of Auschwitz until August 1944, when the entire population is gassed. As a Nazi SS officer in the Auschwitz concentration camp, Mengele performs horrific experiments on people, earning him the nickname "Angel of Death" (Todesengel).
This makes Mengele an infamous Nazi war criminal who flees justice at the end of World War II and manages to live in hiding in South America with the help of Nazi sympathizers.
