Human tissue remains of prisoners executed in Nazi-era Berlin to be buried today

More than 300 pieces of laboratory tested human tissue remains belonging to prisoners who were executed in Nazi-era Berlin will be buried today.

The microscopic remains were found at a property belonging to Hermann Stieve, an anatomy professor at the Charité university hospital who carried out research in World War II.

The tissue pieces were found in small black boxes, most of which had names of prisoners on them. Once found, the remains were given to Berlin’s Charité university hospital and research into their history was carried out by the German Resistance Memorial Centre.

Researchers said that Stieve had collaborated with the Nazis to receive the bodies of 184 people, mostly women, who were executed for political resistance.
