Dr. Carl Klaus Schilling

In 1941 after working for Mousillini in fascist Italy, Dr. Schilling joined the Nazi party to continue his medical malaria trials. He conducted experiments on 1200 unwilling prisoners at the Dachau concentration camp. Many died instantaneously and over 400 people were killed at the hands of his experiments. After the war in 1946, aged 74, Dr. Schilling was arrested and hanged by American authorities.
