Surgery without anesthesia on living human beings because it was thought that the death of the subject would affect the results.
Prisoners had limbs amputated in order to study blood loss. Parts of organs, such as the brain, lungs, and liver, were removed from some prisoners.
Physiologist conducted experiments by taking captives outside, dipping various appendages into water, and allowing the limb to freeze.
Doctors orchestrated forced sex acts between infected and non-infected prisoners to transmit the disease. Rape and forced pregnancy of female prisoners were common and supplied infants for more testing.
Human victims were used for testing of grenades, flamethrowers, and all-purpose targets.
Victims were tested to see how long until death when deprived of food and water, placed into high-pressure chambers, exposed to chemicals, burned, placed into centrifuges, injected with animal blood, exposed to x-rays, gas chambers, injected with sea water, and buried alive.
Japanese researchers performed tests on prisoners with bubonic plague, cholera, smallpox, botulism, and other diseases.
