In a horrific twist of events, body parts and brains of gruesome Auschwitz experiments were discovered in a research lab in Munich.

The remains were discovered stored in jars after renovations were conducted at the Max Planck Psychiatric Institute in Munich, Germany. Reportedly, the remains were discovered last year but were only reported to the public now. The research institute claims that the brain samples were used by Nazi researcher Julius Hallervorden.

During the reign of terror of Nazi Germany, many Jews perished in concentration camps. Some were forced to do manual labor, while others were immediately sent to the gas chambers to their death. However, a special subset of prisoners-of-war was sent to the laboratory of Dr. Joseph Mengele, known as the infamous “Angel of Death”. These prisoners were well-fed but were subjected to various horrific experiments, ranging from vivisections to surgeries without anaesthetic.

Known as the infamous "Angel of Death", Dr. Josef Mengele escaped trial for the crimes he committed. He escaped and was only found after his death.

Rare Colored Photographs of America Coping from 1930s Great Depression

Relive the beautiful memory of America coping from the Great Depression through these colored images.

The Great Depression happened many years ago and people can only relive the memories of it through pictures. But, as the severe worldwide economic depression took place in the 1930s, the photographs stored at the Farm Security Administration are mere black-and-white, worn out, and as old as time.

Fortunately, some of the old snaps we’re published by Taschen in July for the world to see by Peter Walter in his new book, New Deal Photography: USA 1935-1943. These rarely seen snaps were shot and preserved using Kodachrome color film.

60 Rare Historical Photos You Definitely Must See!

Learn more about the past from these rare, mind-blowing photographs.

A photographer can take a picture of an event so momentous or ordinary and preserve it for generations to see. Some photographs are so significant that we see them in history books and newspapers. Such images help us learn about the people, places, and events that played a substantial role in shaping our world.

If we look at those photos, we might find little or no difference from how we visualize those people and places now in our minds. Take, for instance, Mount Rushmore.

We'd envision the massive sculpture of four great American Presidents on the face of a mountain. Adolf Hitler would be this austere-looking man with brown hair, brown eyes, and a toothbrush mustache.

But do we even know what that mountain looks like before Gutzon and Lincoln Borglum carved those prominent faces there? Or remember the Berlin wall before people painted colorful graffiti on the barrier?
