The whole issue came to light when an Auswitch camp survivor, Eva Korr, now 65yearsold, filed a suit against the pharmaceutical company. According to her case, she maintains that at the age of 12 herself and her twin sister Miriam, who later died, became the guinea-pigs in painful and mysterious medical experiments conducted by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele while they were being held in the concentration camp. The management of Bayer refused to respond to relevant questions by ABC reporters, while a company spokesman stated that the company is not responsible for what happened as during WWII it was an affiliated company of the I.G. Farben which now only exists in the papers. Also, Bayer maintains that the whole issue has been settled a long time ago in the Nuremberg trial when three executives of the company had been accused of war crimes such as experiments in which new drugs were being tested on people held in concentration camps but due to lack of incriminating evidence they were acquitted. However, new evidence has been recovered since then such as a letter signed by the then Bayer sales director Wilhelm Mann who congratulates Mengele for his experiments and agrees to finance his efforts. Bayer together with other 12 companies have already established a joint fund exceeding 1 billion dollars to help the victims of Auswitch. www.mpa.gr
