"Dr. Horst Schumann was a graduate of Auschwitz, where in 1942, in the
woman's camp Bla, he had set up an x-ray station. Here men and women were
forcibly sterilized by being positioned repeatedly for several minutes
between two x-ray machines, the rays aiming at their sexual organs. Most
subjects died after great suffering. The frequently following ovariotomies
were performed also by the Polish prisoner, Dr. Wladyslav Dering. Dering
once bet with an SS man that he could perform ten ovariotomies in an
afternoon, and won his bet. Some of his victims survived. Dering was
declared a war criminal but eluded justice and for a time practiced medicine
in British Somaliland."
