Nazi doctor Josef Mengele's bones used in Brazil forensic medicine courses

Students in São Paulo are examining remains of man known for medical experiments on Jews at Auschwitz to uncover mysteries of his life on the run

For more than 30 years, the bones of Josef Mengele, the German doctor who conducted horrific experiments on thousands of Jews at Auschwitz, lay unclaimed inside a blue plastic bag in São Paulo's Legal Medical Institute.

Dr Daniel Romero Muñoz, who led the team that identified Mengele's remains in 1985, saw an opportunity to put them to use. Several months ago, the head of the department of legal medicine at the University of São Paulo's Medical School obtained permission to use them in his forensic medical courses. Today, his students are now learning their trade studying Mengele's bones and connecting them to the life story of the man called the "angel of death".
