"Dr. Ernst Grawitz, SS and Police Gruppenfuehrer (Lt. Colonel) was the top
doctor in the SS. He was the one who suggested to Himmler in the summer of
1941 gas chambers as means to the `Final Solution,' i.e. the mass
extermination of Jews. He knew of and kept an executive's eye on numerous
other experiments with human guinea pigs at various concentration camps, for
instance body resistance to freezing, jaundice, typhus (research done for
I.G. Farben), and the drinkability of sea water. He committed suicide in
1945."
