Letter from SS-Obersturmbannfuehrer Brandt to Prof. Clauberg, 10 July 1942
[ToWC, Vol. I, p. 729]
Today the Reich Leader SS charged me with transmitting to you his wish
that you go to Ravensbrueck after you have had another talk with
SS-Obergruppenfuehrer Pohl and the camp physician of the women's
concentration camp Ravensbrueck, in order to perform the sterilization
of Jewesses according to your method...

Thorough experiments should be conducted to investigate the effect of
the sterilization largely in a way that you find out after a certain
time, which you would have to fix, perhaps by X-rays, what kind of
changes have taken place. In some cases a practical experiment might
be arranged by locking up a Jewess and a Jew together for a certain
period and then seeing what results are achieved.
