The Nazi doctor Josef Mengele is responsible for the astonishing number of twins in a small Brazilian town, an Argentine historian has claimed. The steely hearted “Angel of Death”, whose mission was to create a master race fit for the Third Reich, was the resident medic at Auschwitz from May 1943 until his flight in the face of the Red Army advance in January 1945. His task was to carry out experiments to discover by what method of genetic quirk twins were produced – and then to artificially increase the Aryan birthrate for his master, Adolf Hitler. Now, a historian claims, Mengele’s notorious experiments may have borne fruit. For years scientists have failed to discover why as many as one in five pregnancies in a small Brazilian town have resulted in twins – most of them blond haired and blue eyed. But residents of Candido Godoi now claim that Mengele made repeated visits there in the early 1960s, posing at first as a vet but then offering medical treatment to the women of the town. Shuttling between Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil, he managed to evade justice before his death in 1979, but his dreams of a Nazi master race appeared unfulfilled. In a new book, Mengele: the Angel of Death in South America, the Argentine historian Jorge Camarasa, a specialist in the post-war Nazi flight to South America, has painstakingly pieced together the Nazi doctor’s mysterious later years. After speaking to the townspeople of Candido Godoi, he is convinced that Mengele continued his genetic experiments with twins – with startling results.

After the war he fled to Latin America and successfully evaded justice up until his death in 1979. Now an Argentinean historian claims Mengele went on with his experiments in hiding, causing a sharp increase in the birth of twins in a small Brazilian town. According to Jorge Camarasa, who is investigating the flight of Nazis to Latin America after WW2, Mengele often visited the town of Candido Godoi on the Paraguay-Brazilian border. Under the name of Rudolph Weiss, it is claimed, Mengele initially provided veterinary services. Later he began treating people. He had a special interest in fertility, tended pregnant women, and claimed he could perform artificial insemination. Anencia Flores da Silva, former mayor of Candido Godoi, recalled: “He appeared to be some sort of rural medic who went from house to house. He attended women who had varicose veins and gave them a potion which he carried in a bottle, or tablets which he brought with him.”; ‘Mengele created twin town in Brazil’.
