In 1942-43, bone, muscle and nerve transplants were performed on 74 Polish women. During Sulphonamide tests, infections in open leg wounds were artificially caused by insertion of bacteria, wood or glass splinters. 13 women died as a consequence, and six were shot dead. On Roma and Sinti women, sterilisation experiments were performed, often leaving the women dead. Amongst these victims, there were children, too, the youngest of them eight years old.
