How about these tidbits taken from an earlier post by Mark Van Alstine?

April, which relates to my visit to Buchenwald camp.

Congress, I left London for Weimar on Sunday morning, the

human skin.

                        I have the honour to be,

[Just in case you believe in the "goatskin" claim:]


And also the following US Army pathologist's report:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  Seventh Medical Laboratory
  APO 403, c/o PK, New York, N.Y.
  Section of Pathology 

  25 May 1945


  SUBJECT:  Identification of Tattoed Skin Hides 

  TO     :  COMMANDING GENERAL, Third U. S. Army 
            (ATTN:   JUDGE ADVOCATE GENERAL) 


  1.  There were submitted to this laboratory section for 
  examination three tanned pieces of skin by Lt. Col. GIVIN 
  from Buchenwald Camp with office record designation of 
  Case 81 T.J.A. 

  2.  The description follows: 

  ......

  PIECE C:  Is truncated, measures 44 cm. at the base. The 
  upper portion is 30 cm. long and the sides measure 46 cm. 
  The skin is transparent, and shows two nipples in the upper 
  area. These are 16 cm. apart. From the nipple level to the 
  umbilicus is 23 1/2 cm.  ....

  MICROSCOPIC: The tissue consists of bundles of collagen 
  showing occasional epithelial and sweat gland remnants. 
  Granular black pigment granules are seen between some 
  of the bundles. 

  3.  Based on the findings in paragraph 2, all three specimens 
  are tattooed human skin. 

  For the Commanding Officer,

>As to Rascher's alleged remarks to a 
>British flier, this is hearsay and inadmissible.

    OK, how about Rascher's letter to the Reichsfu"hrer SS?


The following is a translation of a letter from the Bundesarchiv Koblenz.

This translation was taken from "Concentration Camp Dachau 1933-1945"
(ISBN 3-87490-528-4), p. 169; (Plate 356 with translation.)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dr. Sigmund Rascher                         Munich
                                            Trogertr. 56, August 9, 1942

Esteemed Reichsfuhrer!

 ......

As you know, the same installation as in Linz is to be built in Daschau.
As the "invalid transports" terminate in the special chambers anyway I
wondered if it would be possible to test the effects of our different
combat gases in these chambers using the persons who are destined for
these chambers anyway. The only reports which are available so far are of
experiments on animals or of accidents which occurred in the manufacture of
the gases. Because of this paragraph I am marking this letter "Secret".
