Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Labor booklet for a German Albert Kuschel who worked as a lab assistant in the Robert Koch Institute (of Infectious Diseases) in Berlin. Eugen Gildemeister was a German bacteriologist and, subsequent to the Nazi rise to power, he became Director and Vice-President of this Institute. Gildemeister was involved with pseudo-medical experiments on inmates of Buchenwald, Natzweiler, Sachsenhausen and Dachau. On March 3, 1942, he was present as 145 inmates of KL Buchenwald were willfully infected with Typhus. Five of those inmates died during this experiment; however, he has been held responsible for 250 deaths from his experiments on prisoners. On May 8, 1945, the day of German surrender, Gildemeister committed suicide in Berlin.
