From the Inside Flap :

"In this personal account of her service in the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, Vivien Spitz continues to contribute to the cause of human rights." —President James Carter

This is a chilling story of human depravity and ultimate justice, told for the first time by an eyewitness—a court reporter for the Nuremberg war crimes trial of Nazi doctors. This is the account of torture and murder by experiment in the name of scientific research and patriotism. Doctors from Hell includes trial transcripts that have not been easily available to the general public and previously unpublished photographs used as evidence in the trial.

The author describes the experience of being in bombed-out, dangerous, post-war Nuremberg, where she lived for two years while working on the trial. Once a Nazi sympathizer tossed bombs into the dining room of the hotel where she lived moments before she arrived for dinner. She takes us into the courtroom to hear the dramatic testimony and see the reactions of the defendants to the proceedings. The witnesses tell of experiments in which they were deprived of oxygen; frozen; injected with malaria, typhus, and jaundice; subjected to the amputation of healthy limbs; forced to drink seawater for weeks at a time; and other horrors.

This landmark trial resulted in the establishment of the Nuremberg Code, which sets the guidelines for medical research involving human beings. Doctors from Hell is a significant addition to the literature on World War II and the Holocaust, medical ethics, human rights, and the barbaric depths to which human beings can descend.

About the Author :

VIVIEN SPITZ is a Fellow of the Academy of Professional Reporters of the National Court Reporters Association, and was an Official Reporter of Debates and Chief Reporter in the United States House of Representatives from 1972 to 1982. During this time she reported Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan on their State of the Union Addresses to the Nation. She reported as well all foreign Heads of State who addressed Congress, including King Juan Carlos of Spain, President Anwar Sadat of Egypt, and Prime Minister Itzhak Rabin of Israel. She reported President Carter's establishment in 1978 of the President's Commission on the Holocaust, appointing Elie Wiesel as Chairman. By contract with the United States War Department, Mrs. Spitz reported the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials in Germany from 1946 to 1948, including the Nazi Doctors Case. She recorded verbatim the words that came from the mouths of witnesses and victims who survived the heinous experiments "in the name of scientific medical research" conducted by doctors who had taken the Oath of Hippocrates to heal and cure, turned into doctors who became torturers and murderers. Since 1987 she has made presentations on The Nazi Doctors Case of the Nuremberq War Crimes Trials, to over 37,000 people in the United States, Canada, and Singapore using graphic slides of captured German film showing experiments the doctors conducted on concentration camp victims without their consent. Her message is about basic human rights and the dignity of life, the difference between good and evil, and indifference to evil. Steven Spielberg's SHOAH Foundation on December 22, 1995, conducted a videotaped interview of her which is in the U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Tony Randall, Producer of Judqment at Nuremberq, in April 2001 had her appear on the Broadway stage following a performance to speak and answer questions. "I am proud to pay special tribute to Vivien Spitz as she receives the first NCRA Humanitarian Award in recognition of her service as a court reporter during the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials and her dedicated efforts to promote Holocaust remembrance." —President Bill Clinton "You are to be commended for your work in recording more than 300,000 pages of testimony during the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, and I want to salute you for your outstanding dedication and tremendous commitment to educating your colleagues and peers about hate crimes."

—Vice President Al Gore
