Nazi "Angel of Death", Josef Mengele's Papers And Diaries Found In Sao Paulo, Brazil

Bookmark and Share

Eighty-five previously unreleased Letters and Diaries of the "Angel of Death", Josef Mengele, have been found in a Sao Paulo, Brazil police storeroom. The letters were seized in 1985 from the house of a German couple Mengele had been hidden by. Mengele was the brutal doctor who experimented on Jews and others in sadistic ways.

One way in which he would experiment was putting a person in a pressure chamber without protection and then, while watching, reduce the pressure until they went into convulsions and died. He would then study the effects pressure had on them after death.

He also had a fascination with twins. He would infect one twin with a disease and upon the death of the diseased twin then would kill the other, so he could do comparative autopsies.

Mengele died in 1979, at age 66, in a drowning incident and was never brought to justice.

The Scotsman

Extracts from the diaries and letters were printed yesterday by a newspaper in São Paulo.


Of his own actions in "selecting" whether victims at Auschwitz were to live to work or to be experimented upon, or to be dispatched in the gas chambers, he wrote: "I gave life in Auschwitz, I did not take it."


But he also remained true to the Führer’s ideal that Jews "should never be allowed to mix their blood with others".

And he wrote not a single word of regret about their destruction on an industrial production-line scale, yet found time to criticise Israel for its "persecution" of the Palestinians as early as 1969.

The Herald

Mengele fled to Argentina in 1949. Ten years later he moved to Paraguay, then to Sao Paulo state in 1960. He drowned in the coastal town of Bertioga, aged 66. DNA tests in 1992 concluded it was Mengele.

Fascinating! I hope the authentication process withstands scrutiny. I remember the fake Hitler Diaries that fooled several experts back in the early 80s.

If they do withstand scrutiny, who makes the money?

Nazi war criminal, Dr.Josef Mengele, has an illigitimate daughter, who was born in early 1961 to an Australian woman of German ancestry. Who had been in Paraguay. Staying in a German colony there with her mother and brother, in mid-1960. It is believed the mother of the child was unaware, at the time, of who the child’s father was. But that her mother (now deceased), referred to as “A” in some articles, was well and truly aware and indeed had friends or relatives in that colony. The mother discovered the horrific truth in the mid-70’s, according to the source, believed to be a close relative and confidente of the child’s mother, until recently. The mother who is referred to as “V”.

The child was adopted out and was born in Australia.

According to the source. The child tracked her birth mother down in the early ’90’s. The mother “freaked”. She acknowledged that she was indeed her mother but didn’t want to meet her, but gave her some information regarding her background. But nothing was published as to exactly what. The girl/woman probably is unaware of who her father is(?)

The child had enclosed a few snapshots. One being a close-up of herself and the second, of her 2 children; A baby girl and a toddler son. The mother was quoted as commenting on how the child had an “eerie and uncanny” resemblence to Josef Mengele. That she had “hauntingly beautiful blue eyes”. But what affected the mother more was that both Mengele and his daughter had a mole on the left side of their faces, in almost an identical position. The child had blonde hair, whereas Mengele’s was darker. Otherwise, apparently she was said to have a very strong resemblence to her infamous father.

If that woman, who was referred to as “J” put all the pieces together. It would probably be enough to get her thinking, as there’s the issue of a private adoption, and certain conditions we involved. One being their race! Another, I believe, was religion. Mengele’s parents were strict Catholics.

They stated the child was 4 weeks premature. Apparently Mengele referred to her as “his early birthday present” or “another early birthday present”. This makes sense. Mengele’s birthdate is March 16. His son Rolf’s is March 11. Therefore it would be fair, to my way of thinking, to assume his daughter was born between March 1 - 15 1961. There was other information too, and to be honest. The whole thing has me really thinking. What would you do if you found out your father was one of the 'so called', most hated men in history?

I’d be interested in any feedback. It’s an issue, I have never thought about before, but there must be many children out there whose father, or less likely, mother is an almost universal hated figure. And they are unaware of it. The law of averages says some MUST discover the truth. What a nightmare! If the pieces are put together from the things I have read on various Jewish, Nazi and non-Jewish forum sites etc. Since the child knew enough to trace her birth mother. I think she would well and truelly have enough information to really wonder whether it could be her they are talking about. In other words, she could trace herself!

There is a poll about Mengele’s daughter at http://www.misterpoll.com/3708044159.html

Check it out.

UPDATE: It appears the mother has headed for the hills. According to several articles. She has flown the coup to the Barossa Valley in the state of South Australia. This area has a large German population.

I wonder if she intends telling her daughter the truth about her father before someone tracks her down..and they will. I would not like to hear something like that from the media or worse. - On some TV news show!

I think its very suspicious that they never released his diaries to the public because those diaries where ment to be seen by the world to show the truth in history. The people that are witholding that information are afriad to show the public because they don't want us to know something. I say LET THE TRUTH BE HEARD!

Thanks for the info guys, ive been using it for a school project!!!! I agree with Elliot though, if anything regarding our past is found, it should be released to the public; but i dont agree to the fact that the girl HAS to find out who her father is. Regardless of who her father is, she could grow up to do great, amazing miricles, or she could grow up to cause yet another World War. Its not our past who makes us who we are, its our minds.

His diary will never be released to the public without serious "editing" and neither will the letters or other documents.

Does anyone know who is holding these documents and where? It's an important part of history that shouldn't be tampered with.

If no one can read it, where are these quotes coming from? How are books using tons of quotes from the diary? Someone has read it and used parts. I would like an unedited copy of the diary, but I imagine it is "evidence" that cannot be released--unless you are writing a biased book about Josef.
